If you have been following the National Defense Authorization Act, it is no secret that the issue is anything but a roller coaster ride. Last month the Senate approved an amendment that would prevent the military from detaining American citizens suspected of terrorism without a trial, but on Tuesday lawmakers dropped that same ban. Tangerine Bolen, founder and director for RevolutionTruth, breaks down what the NDAA could mean for Americans.

  7. The United States “administration” has been so roundly criticised and in fact condemned by the best and the wisest, together with its craven lackeys and proxies, that it has surrendered whatever moral, intellectual or imaginative ground it retained from a former age when some vestige of honour survived.

    America has already lost its perpetual “world war,” it should prepare for a “Pax Galactica” since its foreign policy is such total fantasy.

    The 13th-century Persian poet Rumi wrote many beautiful things, but we might do well to reflect upon the wisdom of these particularly timely & memorable lines:

    “…Fall asleep in a garden, and you gain by waking ~ drowse in a prison and your waking will be but loss…”

    (From The Spiritual Concert, quoted in Peter Lamborn Wilson, 1993 Sacred Drift: Essays on the Margins of Islam; City Lights, SF ~ p.9)
