There is apparently a bill proposed in the American Senate which would give the president the sweeping power/ability to quote: order the detention--without charge or trial--of any person even suspected of being associated with a "terrorist organization." unquote.

To read more about the bill go to "Georeg Takei's blog" which is where I read about it. I am hoping a bill like this will not be passed because the very idea of having internment camps again in a supposedly free country like the United States. Especially since it could lead to a slippery slope to where other people/groups are interned for other reasons.

Remember:

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
