I read about these scary trends last year when the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was enacted, but it didn’t get any media attention, and probably something shiny happened by.  So I forgot about it. 

What the hell?  People engaging in sit-ins for animal rights are terrorists?  Secret detention camps in the U.S.?  Secret trials for U.S. citizens?  The president can declare martial law for basically any reason?  

It’s been said many times before, but this really is the beginnings of a police state.  After the laws are passed and detention centers are actually being built, it’s not Chicken Little to say so.  The concrete foundation is actually in place.  Literally.
