Congress threatened with Martial Law if they voted NO on bailout
Fear-mongering doesn’t get any more obvious than this. Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA, Sherman Oaks, Northridge) despite intense pressure, stood up in the House and told the world that members of Congress had been threatened by the White House with Martial Law if they voted NO on the bailout bill. Martial Law. It seems my reference to “virtual guns” in my last blog post was incorrect — correction: they were real guns.
“The only way they can pass this bill is by creating and sustaining a panic atmosphere.”

Thank Rep. Sherman here.
