Anyone know what the Posse Comitatus Act is?




What is it? I notice that some reporters are pushing for military intervention and it's pissing me off.



What is the Posse Comitatus Act?


United States Code; Title 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE; PART I - CRIMES; CHAPTER 67 - MILITARY AND NAVY

Section 1385. Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus:

"Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly
authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses
any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or
otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or
imprisoned not more than two years, or both."



The Homeland Security tries to legitamize violating it:

Warning: Uncensored due to me being pissed off at our government




It is fucking upsetting me that people are dying from exhaustion, dehydration, etc. I have seen video of people screaming, "Help! Help! Help!"


On top of that some CNN reporters are asking for military intervention which is really pissing me off especially since I am near Washington DC right now. Right now I have a comfortable bed to sleep in, food to eat, and water to drink. I am living in luxury. So are our president, the FEMA director, the reporters on CNN, etc while people are dying.

I am so annoyed. So fucking annoyed!

The military is not allowed to act on U.S. soil not without the authorization of the Constitution or with an Act of Congress. This is only one step closer to a dictatorship. Worse how they are treating these people is how the government treats US. I don't care if they are rich or poor. Human life is a sanctity yet I see government officials not acting fast enough. It's been about two days so far and there are babies who are without water and/or without food. I am so disgusted right now. Especially with our government. Of course the National Guard is allowed to stomp on U.S. soil. However where the fuck are they?!?? Fuck, man!

Or put it this way:

our government + President Bush + Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff + FEMA's Michael Brown = Fucking up + Fucking us over


I feel terrible for those people suffering, fuck!

I am glad
I am glad that you feel sooooo terrible about the people suffering in N.O. while you and the president are living in luxury...

That is why you are getting in your SUV (one of two cars/houses you own) and are rushing down to Mississippi with a bin full up spam musubis to help feed some of the starving people.

Oh wait... you are not... you are sitting here posting to this blogs!!! After all, priorities are priorities. Good job!!!
