The coup, continued. As you probably know by now, a special law was passed in the wee hours to avert Florida's judicial process regarding the removal of Terry Schiavo's feeding tube. But there were only three Senators present, out of a body of 100. No quorum, according to our Constitution, and the ideologues apparently care nothing for the Constitution or due process any longer.
We all know of course how the Medicare prescription bill's voting was held open for hours, when the normal time is about 15 minutes; and we also know how, on that same bill, the correct information on the plan's cost was deliberately withheld from Congress, as well as how there was an attempt to bribe one Representative right on the floor of the House.
A coup is in progress. Who will show their patriotism and stand in the way of this?
