Hi There,

I really wish that 'OP's' would not jump at the first headline they see. Sensationalistic claims require sensationalistic evidence, and the only evidence of 'martial law' is that of the term used to emphazise proceedings in the House pending the voting of a bill...in this case the bill of the bailout!

America is not under 'military' martial law...please check other sources for clarification. If military martial law was declared, Bush would most certainly address the nation.

Sometimes, during a HOLD UP, a HOSTAGE situation can take place. I wasnt even surprised to see this headline........



In any case, there is no Martial Law yet!

Yes, I think the title of this thread is misleading, perhaps a tad alarmist.

I'm not in the US, but I'd imagine that one of the first things to go would be most of the media outlets, except to tell people what to do.

Everyone - relax.

That's an order!

Because there is a CONGRESSIONAL martial law, which is just a procedure to force the bailout bill to hit the floor for votes immediately. I can't be 100% positive, but I believe a similar measure was used to push the Patriot Act through back in '01.

I'm not undermining the concept of CONGRESSIONAL martial law, because that's a whole other issue unto itself in situations like this, but there's no need to panic that we're going to see jackbooted thugs patrolling our streets. Not at this moment, at least.

You're right to be concerned, because this measure forces the bill to a vote without the rank & file Congresscritters having much time to review what they're voting on, though.

2 days...ends today apparently.

Pehaps this is the so called "baby steps implementation" ?



There's a problem (the economic crisis), and there's a solution (the bailout).
Now, for that solution to come around they need a Congressional Martial Law.

I can almost see the news/feelings in a few days: "Bailouts help economy raise".

And then, in a few weeks or months we'll have another problem, and another solution on the horizon... all that will be needed is full Martial Law. Who's gonna go against it?


Peace

I will be posting this entry into every thread related to this 'martial law' question.

Yes, the name is alarming, and no, it is not related to civilian day-to-day activities.

But don't breath a heart-felt sigh of relief just yet. There is a reason for the alarming nomenclature..., it is extraordinary that they should invoke this process with blanket immunity, especially since we have no idea what 'extras' will be riding on the final measure.

The 'enforcement' of the expediency is very telling of the intent. I hate to say it, because many of us here at ATS are in the unenviable position of being able to claim, 'We told you so." on the current financial crisis (I would much rather have been wrong); but it looks like some of us will be in that very same position in a matter of weeks, if not days. This 'blanket authority to depart from regular legislative process' can be applied to whatever measure they want, since the declaration of legislative martial law escaped the narrow definition of the bailout.
