^ Why do you always have to be so rude?

Surely a more interesting question to address is why do so many people believe in conspiracy theories in these times?

A little bit of reality:

From what I understand this isn't martial law as in "police state". This so called “martial law rule” is an internal rule of the Congress that allows the members to vote to suspend the regular rules so that legislation can be adopted more expeditiously.


Committee on Rules - Republicans

These conspiracy theorists know how to use YouTube, but can't work Google to look up something?

Because simple all encompassing answers give more comfort than a world where bad things happen for innumerable uncontrollable reasons.

If you had actually read my second post - minutes after the first - you'd know that I indeed did do research and found that this was a term that is used in Congress. I corrected myself almost immediatley. Anyways, for someone who has little knowledge of the inside workings of Congress, to have watched that youtube clip and not been alarmed by the term "Martial Law" especially during the "greatest finincial crisis since the great depression" would have been irresponsible.

If by 'irresponsible' you mean 'not prone to jumping to hysterical conclusions,' then sure.

Again, what is so "hysterical" about being worried when you watch a member of congress in what is being described as the "worst finincial crisis since the great depression" say that "martial law" has been declared overnight????

If being worried is being "hysterical" then I'm glad I'm a hysterical nutcase. When it does eventually come crashing to the ground at least I'll have a slight inkling as to how I'll feel and maybe, just maybe, be able to do something positive during it.

Or you know, you could just do the research BEFORE jumping into "MARTIAL LAW DECLARED????" overreaction mode.

Maybe this is the key here. Maybe next time do the googling before you post.
