46. "martial law' is the name given to a procedure used in the House from time to time
Edited on Fri Oct-03-08 07:48 AM by onenote
It is not the same as, or even remotely related to, the concept of declaring martial law in the United States. Let me pose a question: when Congress talked about using the "nuclear option" to stop filibusters, did you think they were going to detonate a hydrogen bomb in the Capitol?
