nukedboomerDEFINITION OF "VETO"Tue Oct 24, 2006 21:57184.108.40.206American Heritage Dictionary defines "veto" as:
"the vested power or constitutional right of a branch of government, esp. of a chief executive, to reject a bill passed by a legislative body and thus prevent or delay its enactment into law.
The exercise of this right.
As authoritative prohibition or rejection of a proposed or intended act.
To prevent (a legislative bill) from becoming law by exercising the power of veto.
To refuse to consent to; prohibit."
SO!! By the above definition of "veto" this is NOT what Georgie Porgie did; he signed it and announced that it is now LAW!!!
Article I, Section 7 of the U.S. Constitution states:
"If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him the Same shall be a Law, in like Manneras if he had signed, unless the Congress by the3 Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a law."
So, the House signed the bill on Setp. 28, 2006, and the Senate passed and signed the bill on September 29, 2006, and ADJOURNED until Nov. 9, 2006, at 2pm eastern time.
Geogie Porgie signed the bill on Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2006, announcing that it is now law.
SO, based on the described Constitution protocol AND the dictionary definition of the word "veto" this Military Commission Act of 2006 is DEAD, VOIDED, UNENFORCEABLE!!!
GET IT? WE have been terror hyped again.
If this was a "test" just to see how this nation's citizens would respond and uprise against such legislation, I do believe that Georgie Porgie and his gangstas' have their answer as to OUR response.
