    It's a figure of speech used to refer to a suspension of some House procedural rules.

    "Under the martial law procedure, long-standing House rules that require at least one day between the unveiling of significant legislation and the House floor vote on that legislation — so that Members can learn what they are being asked to vote on — are swept away. Instead, under “martial law,” the Leadership can file legislation with tens or hundreds of pages of fine print and move immediately to debate and votes on it, before Members of Congress, the media, or the public have an opportunity to understand fully what provisions have been altered or inserted into the legislation behind closed doors. This is the procedure that the Leadership intends to use to muscle through important bills in the next two days." From Michael Burgess' website, 9/28/08.

    U.S. Congressman Michael C. Burgess : 26th District Of Texas
    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    She is the same one who went absolutely ballistic when a capitol police officer asked for ID when she tried to bypass a metal detector screaming “Do you know who I am, Do you know who I am”. She needs to join the ranks of the unemployed ineligible for unemployment benefits.

    I don't think she's fit to flip burgers. I agree with what you said.

    So that is the same procedure Queen pelosi used to ram obamacare down our throats, we must pass it to see what’s in it (like a stool sample).

    There has just been too much weird "stuff" ever since 9/11. All kinds of exec orders under both obama & Bush. Heck, the fema camps everyone talks about were actually built under bush.

    And honestly, the idea that someone has given the green light for wanting us disarmed, and with no ammo, doesnt give me the warm fuzzies, either.
