    • On March 27, 2009, by callagan - Read it again....Nowhere in this does it differentiate who is being arrested, investigated, etc (military personnel or civilians with no connection to the military)...or where the lines of authority stop,(on Federal Government or Military Property, at the gate? NO, it's everywhere). WAKE UP and listen to the boots. The US Government is precluded in the constitution from forming a national police force as a check and balance against their corruptible power. That's why DOJ etc have severe limitations on their authority. How tough would it have been to put these limitations in this bill? Not tough at all, but it was NOT done. The only limitation is that the Sec of Defense controls them....a federal government official appointed by the President..Do you want him to have that authority? This is a ruse. How about federal civilian police officers, on federal lands, enforcing federal laws?

    • On April 06, 2009, by DianaAmerican - This Bill is without a doubt Un-Constitutional. You better read the Constitution and understand what it says! Warrants are required in Our Constitution for a reason! Each person in the US Military takes an oath to protect "We The People" against ANYONE who would try to violate our Constitutional Rights. If more US Military persons are needed then politicians should focus on increasing our US Military by not cutting their benefits, etc. This would rather aid in th so called, Un-Constitutional, National Civilian Security Force.

    • On March 31, 2009, by callagan - Just to add to my previous comment and controls on government authority. If you had told me three months ago that a US president could "fire" the CEO of GM, a private company....I would have said you were crazy. There is no constitutional way this could happen.. The president is head of the Executive Branch of Government, but his actions were not questioned by the press (most said, "well, Wagoner deserved it") or the congress (lapdogs). So when you allow a power mad megalomaniac the right to form a national police force...NO WAY.
