Tell the Senate “NO to Indefinite Military Detention!”
The U.S. Senate is considering the unthinkable: changing detention laws to imprison people — including Americans living in the United States itself — indefinitely and without charge.
The Defense Authorization bill is now on the Senate floor with troubling provisions that would give the President — and all future presidents — the authority to indefinitely imprison people, without charge or trial, both abroad and inside the United States and would mandate military detention of some civilians who would otherwise be outside of military control. The indefinite detention without charge or trial provisions are so harmful that the Obama White House has threatened to veto the bill if they are not removed from it.
Urge your senators to vote YES on the Udall amendment to the Defense Authorization bill which would remove the harmful provisions from the bill and in their place, mandate a process for Congress to use an orderly process to consider whether any detention legislation is needed.
I hate "intellectuals" who pretend Freud is like the biggest thing since slice bread when in reality they don't know anything about him. To put it briefly the man was a scum bag (racist, coke addict and fucking greedy), but he still was a smart man, though I don't think he should be idolized.
Look at it this way; it’s like looking at the Angel of Death (Josef Mengele) as a great scientist which he was because he made countless discoveries in the medical field…way more breakthroughs than Freud, but no one idolizes him because he killed and tortured people. Plus, most of Freud’s work was theoretical.
