New Defense Act?
« on: March 18, 2012, 02:39:18 PM »
I've got a toolbar running across my browser that shows links to trending stories.

This morning I saw one that caught my eye, but we were too busy and I ignored it. Just now, I noticed it again and clicked on it.

Apparently the President has just issued a new Executive Order regarding defense preparedness. As is typical of these things today, the wording is mostly legalese rather than direct. Obviously it's a kind of review to ensure the US is prepared for an emergency, but exactly why and what the result might be isn't clear as the length of this thing is...lengthy.

Here's a link. Maybe those of you with more time on your hands and a better head for reading these things can tell us what it really means.

No time to read it but I am channeling 40Cent: it is obviously linked to December 21, 2012.
