S 1959--say goodbye to Grandma and freedom

How many of you know about S 1959? Have you heard anything via the MSM? I haven't. I first ran across it on Time Goes By, and figured I'd better do a little investigating.

If this bill goes through, you are liable to find your blogging grandmother in a federal pen at some unknown location, or worse, in a black hole in some country the US keeps on retainer to hide their most egregious human rights violations.

Again, this is not a Chicken Little post. The further I read, the lower my jaw dropped. This is the one, folks, this is the bill that will excise the First Amendment cleaner than laser surgery. The last door slamming on what used to be a free, democratic society.

This is the most audacious, stunning attempt yet in the witch-hunt to rid the US of any healthy, intelligent, fundamentally democratic debate. Not satisfied with simply lying, the administration is attempting to block our right to peacefully dissent by criminalizing free speech.

I urge you to read the bill for yourself. If it scares you as much as it does me, then educate everyone you know. Write your leaders, your churches/synagogues/mosques, your local and national media. Ask THEM if they've heard about S 1959. If they haven't, be afraid, be end-of-life-as-we-know-it afraid.

Want to know who the most courageous, patriotic Americans are in this country today? Elderbloggers who are trying their best to get the word out. Koko kisses to you all :)

I have blogged about this more than once since I read about it at TGB. It is a travesty against the Constitution, you know the fine document that's been played fast and loose for the last 8 years. It's already passed the House (HR: 1955) and only 8 members voted against it. It was spearheaded there by Jane Harman (D-Ca). James Madison and Tom Jefferson are turning in their tombs. I'm sure. This granny will not be silenced. I think I'm going to stop worrying about where I'm going to spend my retirement. I'm going to spend it in the pen.

Now that you mention it, it's sort of an ironic joke--maybe they've planned it all along as the most economic way to deal with all the aging boomers--*and* they won't have to monitor all those old folks home anymore. They'll be putting a roof over our heads and 3 squares a day at cut-rate prices, subcontracting it out to Haliburton! As long as they let us keep our computers...
