National Defense Authorization Act passes House, 283-136 

foreverliberal replied to your post: House Approves National Defense Authorization Act after White House Drops Veto Threat

I wouldn’t trust Fox News.

LOL, I knew someone was going to say that! ;) Here are a few more sources since I first learned of this news (which was initially from Twitter…which sadly is better respected than Fox News lol). 
NY Times
CBS NEWS 
ACLU 
USAToday
Politico (which I post below because I appreciate the short and informative way it is presented):

The National Defense Authorization Act and its controversial provisions regarding detention of terror suspects passed the House of Representatives Wednesday night, 283-136.

The measure split Democrats right down the middle, with 93 voting in favor and 93 against legislation that President Barack Obama tactily endorsed earlier in the day by retreating from a veto threat. Though the bill passed handily just before 7:00 PM, there was a surprising amount of opposition from Tea Party faithful and other conservative GOP members, 43 of whom opposed the legislation. (A full roll call is posted here.)

"We have ensured that as we fight terrorists around the world, we also protect the civil liberties of Americans at home," House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-Calif.) said in a statement issued minutes after the vote. The measure goes on to the Senate, where an earlier version of the legislation passed 93-7.

Meanwhile, civil liberties and human rights groups were in a furor Wednesday night over Obama’s decision to drop his veto threat following changes made to the detainee-related sections of the bill.

"By signing this defense spending bill, President Obama will go down in history as the president who enshrined indefinite detention without trial in US law,” Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch said in a statement. “In the past, Obama has lauded the importance of being on the right side of history, but today he is definitely on the wrong side.”

My heart might literally break from depression if I read any more of these comments. People so don’t get it and I really don’t know how to communicate with such people. I would never dream of telling anyone, no matter how much I disagreed with their opinions, to go die, go to hell, or even such petty and immature name calling as libtards…why?  I would say live and let live, who am I to attempt to educate them on my ethics or beliefs, but I cannot help but feel their ignorance and complacency adds to an overall societal problem that is hurting so many innocent people (themselves included).  Of course, I suppose from their perspective, we are the ignorant and immature ones ruining their country. *sigh*
It truly is an affliction to care and think beyond yourself, isn’t it?

I honestly cannot believe Fox. It’s a giant joke being played on - and against - humanity.

Well, here is an interview that Fox News filmed, but doesn’t want you to see. The segment was shot on Wednesday for Greta van Susteren‘s show, (though it looks like the same producer from this O’Reilly segment questioning Michael Moore‘s anti-capitalist agenda) though the decision was made to leave it on the cutting room floor. The reason should be obvious pretty quickly.

The speaker giving Fox News the buisness is Jesse LaGreca, a vocal member of the Occupy Wall Street protests. This video comes courtesy of Kyle Christopher from OccupyWallSt.org's media team.
