NDAA and SOPA on Connect the Dots

Monday morning at 7 PT on Lila Garrett’s CONNECT THE DOTS we’ll review the old year  and prioritize the new with:
 
 DAVID SWANSON covering the  NDAA (Nat’l. Defense Authorization Act) which has been signed into law.  It gives the President absolute power over anyone he accuses of terrorism, including Americans.  No formal charge is mandated, and there is no right to trial. There goes the two premises on which our justice system is based… presumption of innocence and the right to a fair trial.  And while our democracy struggles to survive this assault…..
 
DAVID SEGAL Exec Director of “Demand Progress”  covers SOPA (
Stop Online Piracy Act HR 3261) an Internet piracy bill presumably to protect copyright for the entertainment business.  But it has the potential to severely censor the Internet. It needs mass phone calls to Congress to be stopped.  
 
GAR ALPEROWITZ discusses his new book, AMERICA BEYOND CAPITALISM.   Where are we headed in 2012?  Monday morning at 7 on CONNECT THE DOTS.
