“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of a private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is Fascism—ownership of government by an individual, by a group or by any controlling private power.”

—Franklin Delano Roosevelt to the Congress, April 29th, 1938.

Ah good call - as I went to bed last night I thought that my reaction was probably exactly the type the YT poster wanted........ Its easy to edit to achieve and fool. Goes to show how easy it is for people to be tricked into believing in something that is quite the opposite (including us on ATS).

My guard goes up.

I am shocked and appalled by this video, this is corruption right in front of our very eyes pure and simple. We cannot let these complete morons run countries, the world is completely backwards.

all of you people that keep on saying that "this is a sign of the destruction of our republic!" should really read the post that fraterormus wrote at the very end of page 1 of this topic. It's very detailed and i suggest more of you read it before you make any sort of opinion.

If you get rid of the old corrupt guys in office you will get rid of this economic turmoil


I think its about time the U.S. started putting younger people in office instead of these golden oldies with possible alzteimers. Its been shown that memory decline is prevalent in olden age, why are these people controlling our country??

Really think about it... Really.

"not subject to question"

"the court is not in order"

OMG!!! Sorry for the stereotype but this deserves an OMG!!!

Can you say corrupt????

Let me ask you again.... ... .. Can you say corrupt???????

When technicalities go beyond common sense , can you see that something may be wrong?

YOUTUBE is not a source people.
When are ATSers going to learn that you can't get all freaked out and grab your pitchforks over a youtube video.

if you dont like youtube, maybe you should check it out on CNN or the channels that air Government cessions... this happens often enough. Just because someone took it off of a reliable source and put it on an unreliable source you discredit it? Wow... Good 1!

LOL...a few sound bites of the procedure that normally goes on there.

August 3rd of last year, nearly the same thing went on.

Republicans don't get the vote they want, then extend the vote for three hours and lose anyway. Im sured its happend with the Democrats too.

Either way, its kind of amazing anything gets passed at all.

Peace

Certainly, on the face of it, it seems outrageous.

HOWEVER...

What you don't see is that that at the beginning every day there is a routine, procedural approval of the prior day's Journal record. This happens even before the Pledge of Allegiance. It's hard to tell if it was Mr. Sensenbrenner's wish to block the Pledge of Allegiance, but that's exactly what he was delaying by calling for a vote in order to halt the beginning of the day's business.

Here's what usually happens at this point at the beginning of the session:

(from a normal Congressional Record)

------------------------------------
1. THE JOURNAL
The SPEAKER. The Chair has examined the Journal of the last day’s proceedings and announces to the House his approval thereof.
Pursuant to clause 1, rule I, the Journal stands approved.

2. PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE
------------------------------------

Let's face it, Mr. Sensenbrenner was being an asshole for calling for a vote for the most irrelevant thing he could think of.

Knowing all of the facts... Mr. Murtha treated him just the way he deserved.

it has nothing to do with whether I like youtube or not. But nothing on youtube is verified, unless it is confirmed that it is a direct copy from a legitimate site.
Any thing can be cut and paste, edited, or new audio put in.

ATS is about denying ignorance. Which means that people are expected to use credible sources. youtube, blogs, and partisan sites are not those sources.


1). Posting: You will not post any material that is knowingly false, misleading, or inaccurate.


It is in the TOS. Members are expected to post accurate materials. Unless it is just to makea point or discussion.

You won't just hear this from me, you will hear this over and over from many memebers of ATS. If it bothers you, maybe this site isn't for you.
