Under the Cover of Ducks

Senate Passes NDAA 2014 via Fast Tracking, President To Sign

Late Thursday night, under the cover of some Duck Dynasty outrage that's captured the media's attention, the Senate passed the NDAA for Fiscal Year 2014, in a sweeping bill now being sent to the President - to which he is planning to sign. 

Like a family sneaking past the line at Disney World - the Senate Fast Tracked the bill while slobbering morons were complaining about what a millionaire moron had to say about... who cares!?

The bill, now being sent to President Obama, also leaves out an amendment by Sen. Gillibrand on sexual assault prosecution, which in and of itself is curious. The bill passed the Senate in an 85-14 count. Note that the media isn't reporting that - only that the President is giving the military a year to clean up it's act.

“It’s a failure of leadership on the part of the majority leader,” Arizona Sen. John McCain told reporters, echoing Republican colleagues who said the accelerated process was designed to prevent tough votes on Iran sanctions and other controversial issues.

Also, the bill would authorize a release of $527 billion in base defense spending for the current fiscal year, plus funds for the war in Afghanistan and nuclear weapons programs overseen by the Energy Department, among numerous other controversial measures.

When will people stop talking about freedom of speech and this guy? Freedom of speech has nothing to do with it! That amendment protects individuals from censorship by the government, it doesn't mean a fuck about what a company can tell its employees what they can and can't say!!!!
