Martial Law by Executive Order – Thanks to Southern Blonde for sending this link. Folks keep in mind that this isn’t from some right-wing anti-government site, but from the usually left leaning liberal Huffington Post.

We are no longer a free people, but the property of the federal government. But as our leaders will assure us, with a straight face, “it is for our own good and protection” you know they, have to protect us and our freedom from those pesky terrorists that are always hiding in the shadows.
