For instance, cookies and ... milk! ( ... got milk? ... )
And when you have a permanent war economy ... you get ... a police state!

Guantanamo . . . indefinite detention
Yesterday the U.S. Senate voted to include provisions in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that authorize the detention of any U.S. citizen using the same unconstitutional and unconscionable measures that have been institutionalized under the Bush-Obama "war on [of] terror."
People are beginning to get it: Guantanamo is for EVERYBODY!
The people who are being subpoenaed by federal grand juries on account of their antiwar activism? They get it ....
The Occupy movement? They get it ....
People taking part in the 1.11.12 national mobilization against U.S. detention policies on the 10th anniversary of the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center? They get it ....
Hopefully, enough people will get it before there are too few of us left to do anything.
|First they detained someone else. Then, they detained YOU!|
Fight indefinite detention/rendition NOW, while you still can!
People are now beginning to understand that the solution is not to delegate our well-being to our political "representatives." We all have to take part directly, and we all have to keep at it. It will take sustained resistance to stop the abuses of our government. If you've read this far, you've probably realized that you now need to be part of the resistance, too.
What are you prepared to do?

The United States perpetuates a state of permanent war. The names change -- hell, sometimes they change by just a single letter -- but the result is the same. Call it "permawar."
"Occupy Chicago opposes the language featured in the National Defense Authorization Act, which if passed would allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens by the military without charge or trail anywhere in the world. This expands and codifies tactics from the War on Terror of illegal detentions condemned by international law and our own constitution. We urge senators Durbin and Kirk to oppose this type of legislation in any form."
