H.R. 1955 - Passed by the House - Will Bush now be able to arrest you simply for being intelligent?

Check this out...

The referenced bill, HR 1955, does not define "force" per se, but if the President or some other government officials ever define force the way some dictionaries define it (as illustrated in this YouTube video), we are closer to absolute tyranny than most of us probably thought we would be at this juncture in history.  I do not believe that the majority of our representatives who voted for this bill understood the possible implications of what they were doing when they signed this bill, but we all know now that our representatives have at times, voted for bills they did not read, study, or understand.  This kind of negligence could cost any of us our personal freedom, just as it has already cost hundreds of thousands of innocent people their lives, their homes, their health, and their happiness.  If the President were to take you off the street based on his own definition of "force" we might never hear from you again.
