    Senate legalizes bestiality in the Armed Forces:

    The Associated Press (via the Boston Globe) is reporting that the Democratic-controlled US Senate has passed the $662 billion 2012 NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act).


    The NDAA covers everything from jet strike fighters to housing for military families.


    It also de-criminalizes both sodomy and bestiality.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......This must be what the news flash was all about, the President will use the Presidential Signing Statement on something.

    THE LEGAL SIGNIFICANCE OF PRESIDENTIAL
    SIGNING STATEMENTS
    Many Presidents have used signing statements to make substantive legal, constitutional, or administrative pronouncements on the bill being signed. Although the recent practice of issuing signing statements to create "legislative history" remains controversial, the other uses of Presidential signing statements generally serve legitimate and defensible purposes.

    MEMORANDUM FOR BERNARD N. NUSSBAUM,
    COUNSEL TO THE PRESIDENT
    This memorandum provides you with an analysis of the legal significance of Presidential signing statements. It is addressed to the questions that have been raised about the usefulness or validity of a such statements. We believe that such statements may on appropriate occasions perform useful and legally significant functions. These functions include (1) explaining to the public, and particularly to constituencies interested in the bill, what the President believes to be the likely effects of its adoption, (2) directing subordinate officers within the Executive Branch how to interpret or administer the enactment, and (3) informing Congress and the public that the Executive believes that a particular provision would be unconstitutional in certain of its applications, or that it is unconstitutional on its face, and that the provision will not be given effect by the Executive Branch to the extent that such enforcement would create an unconstitutional condition.(1)
