NDAA: It Doesn’t Apply to You? Baloney

“It doesn’t apply to you.”
I’ve heard that a lot in regards to the detention provisions in the National Defense Authorization act. I prefer to call them kidnapping provisions. What else do you call it when armed men can come haul you off and hold you indefinitely without due process? Doing it under the auspices of some federal act doesn’t make it any less criminal, as far as I’m concerned.
But really, what difference does it make? After all, it doesn’t apply to you, right?
