Holy crap!! You're right!
BUT BUT BUT.
I went back and listened to Burgess's entire dissertation. He is bitching like hell that the Reps have been left out, and actually thrown out, from
meetings regarding this bailout bill, and makes the great point that "let's put it up on the internet at least for 24 hours and let the people see
what we have done in the darkness" or something close to that. And he refers to "Thomas," no doubt meaning thomas.gov, the site that has all of
congress's legislation on it.
So I'm not sure if he meant it in a literal sense, rather than a proverbial sense. I think it is the latter, on first impression.
But needless to say, this should send a few people to dig up what exactly Pelosi said last night, and in what context. Because if we were truly as a
country already under martial law, then WTF were they doing there legislating as usual, and why wouldn't we have heard of this announced on emergency
radio or the EBS TV system?
