It turns out that Obama specifically requested this indefinite detention provision. My guess is that this was written for the occupiers, the first group to publicly finger the 1%.
The Michigan House of Representatives has unanimously passed a bill that would prohibit state cooperation with any federal attempt to implement Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act. As you may recall, Section 1021 authorized indefinite detention by the military of people arrested within the U.S. and did not—contrary to some reports—exclude U.S. citizens from that provision.
The dems now have a super majority on both sides of the legislature and a dem governor. Let's see if they have the courage to pass SB810, health care for all. This will save tons of money for our impoverished state.
Let's remember that universal health care came to Canada one province at a time starting with Saskatchewan in 1948.
Hi guys. Just a reminder that there will be no Ordc meeting in November or December. Our next meeting will be 29 January, 6pm at the Pizza Factory.
As is our custom, we will have a holiday dinner. This year we are at Whiskey Creek, Tuesday 4 December at 6pm.
With the arctic sea ice area at a shocking new minimum, 10% below the previous minimum, it will be interesting to see if global warming is even mentioned during the debate this evening. The corporate media doesn't like to talk about global warming and I would expect that there will be zero questions on it.

Never mind what's going to happen in 2100: climate change is already shrinking the global economy.
According to the Climate Vulnerability Monitor – a report by Spanish non-profit organisation DARA – in 2010 climate change shaved 1.6 per cent off global gross domestic product. The figure was calculated by adding the harmful effects of climate change to the problems of the carbon-based economy, such as air pollution.
Previous studies, such as the 2006 Stern Review, concluded that climate change would not become a net cost for decades. But they had not considered climate's impact on productivity. As the temperature increases, people work less well. "It has been assumed that a hotter living and working environment is nothing to worry about," says Tord Kjellström of Umeå University in Sweden. "But the 5 billion people living in the hot parts of this planet are already constrained by heat."
