Until this little petition reaches 150 signatures, it won't be quickly viewable at whitehouse.gov for other people to sign, except by direct link.  Here's Rand Paul vs John McCain on the Senate floor about S. 1867:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpfS62zrmAQ - John McCain enters at 13:35.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXbwmqq-6Y4 - here's later in the same debate where McCain infers that anyone who is a threat, citizen or not, should be detained and stands by his bill.  I appreciate his sentiment, but I think the approach is nothing short of entirely wrong.

So, here's the petition.  Please pass it along to those who you think need to at least examine the issue at hand.

So, that NDAA passed the Senate 93-7.  Doesn't matter if Obama were to veto it... heck based on what I've read from the Wall Street Journal... yeah.  The USA just got really, really ugly.
