ABL's Thoughts on the #NDAA

These are some thoughts I've tweeted over the last several days. -ABLxx Also, check out Hal Sparks' 12/17 show at around the 1 hour 34 min mark. Hal gives me a shout out and -- well -- I love it. And him. (Call me!) Here's the link: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/19205776

RT @steveweinstein: @AngryBlackLady can you please do some lawyering on the NDAA to calm everyone the fuck down? http://t.co/yG619hh9

@JoshuaHol i’m reading about it now. i just want it to be clear that i absolutely disagree with codifying AUMF 104-70.
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
RT @rkref: Detention provisions of NDAA were revised further after WH veto threat. Key House Dem says it's now signable: http://t.co/Er4Ug7nQ
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
The AUMF is an abomination. Now someone tell me what ppl are pissed about? Last week it was mandatory detention of citizens. #cantkeepup

RT @snkscoyote: Adam Smith’s “Dear Colleague” Letter on the NDAA’s Detention Provisions http://t.co/bEhLaiNI //as usual, PL is dead wrong @AngryBlackLady
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
Am i taking crazy pills or was the #NDAA veto threat addressed towards mandatory detention *in the United States*? I srsly don’t get it. #p2
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
That the AUMF was codified sucks ass, don’t get me wrong. But can someone update me on what exactly we’re fighting about? #NDAA #p2
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
Cuz what I’m getting is that folks wanted Obama to essentially undo the AUMF, which wasn’t what people were yelling about last week. #NDAA
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
Can I be against mandatory detention for everyone and still not understand what the fuck people are fighting about? Is that a choice?
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
RT @lysana: @AngryBlackLady I've still had peeps insist NDAA would sock it to citizens when it doesn't. I want raeg over TRUTH, dammit. #optimist
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
@VivaLaBama @Shoq the internal security act was a standalone bill as I recall. This is a "omg Dems are defunding the military" sitch. #NDAA
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
RT @dave_in_sa: If POTUS veto was aimed at portion of bill that authorized detention of US citizens as foreign terrorists & that removed where's the cave?
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
RT @Shoq: RT @bobcesca_go: @Shoq posted a link about how #NDAA language has changed. Hence, softening of the veto threat. http://t.co/sOulNcbi
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
People want Obama to veto a bill on principle. Even though it would be overridden. Even though ppl would yell about defunding the military.
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
PBO threatened to veto due to conflict w/ Posse Comitatus. That language was changed. Veto threat removed. OMG HE CAVED SOLD US OUT LOLBBQ
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
Or maybe -- JUST FUCKING MAYBE -- you should give the man a Congress that won't write defense bills that codify the bullshit Patriot Act.
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
As for the ACLU's talking point about Truman having the courage to veto the McCarthy bill? The Internal Security Act wasn't a defense bill.
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
Look, I love the ACLU. But come the fuck on, guys. At least tell the truth. People deserve info to allow them to make up their own minds.
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
On defense funding bill?! RT @oxfordfalls: @AngryBlackLady I'm not so sure that a veto would be overridden. Given time/public outrage.
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
RT @spooney35: @AngryBlackLady Under what circumstances in Prez. Obama term thus far do you feel he should VETO, given this poor Congress ?
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
@spooney35 he was going to veto to prevent military acting as police. The way #NDAA was written would've effectively undone Posse Comitatus.
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
But somebody said something happened and it sounds really bad and plus there are drones in my kitchen so EVERYBODY PANIC AND DON'T VOTE!!!11
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
@oxfordfalls absolutely. But as usual, my point is about how we talk about stuff, not about the stuff itself. I agree that the stuff sucks.
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
RT @Ronc99: Okay. So @ABCNews is reporting the language the @ACLU is all upset abt in #NDAA, has been REMOVED. WTF is the problem, screamers? #P2 #ows
Imani Gandy 🔥 @AngryBlackLady
argle bargle RT @phive0phor: RT @OsborneInk: Congress passing NDAA is somehow an argument for not voting at all? How does that figure?
