Members of Congress Read U.S. Constitution on House Floor–The Weird Discussion Prior on How To Read It and Which Version (
Posted Jan 07 2011 2:24am
If you haven’t seen this yet, this is more entertaining than the actual reading with the discussion and one person wanting to ask a question. <grin>. What amendments will be read and there were some pages that got stuck together and were missed in the reading as it was in a 3 ring binder. The big decision was to read the amended document, whew! By the way if you want to read the Constitution you can read it online, download it, etc. here at the government archives. Come to think of it, I’ll just turn on the Microsoft text to speech narrator and have it read to me on my computer. This is on almost every version of Windows and you just need to access and enable it.
ANYONE HEARD OF A KINDLE, IPAD OR ANY OTHER READER HERE THAT COULD HELPED IN NOT MISSING 3 PAGES?
Now in the meantime 2 House Republicans missed getting sworn in as they were at a fund raiser reports Rachel Maddow , and they voted later which was a violation of the Constitution.
OK ANYONE FOR A LITTLE TECHNOLOGY WITH REMOTE SESSION OF CONGRESS?
We can do that today as businesses all over the world are having remote conferences and the virtualization is good. These 2 were ok though as they watched the television from the Capitol visitors Center with their hands raised, huh?
There are luddites on both sides of the political parties but today was the day for the GOP and General Consumer literacy was certainly not showing and perhaps they may want to amend the Constitution to allow for those folks who can’t make get sworn in <grin>. If you want to read a little more discussion the post below has that along with some pondering why the GOP embraced Facebook this week when there has not been much action before <grin> and did a lobbyist from Goldman suggest this? In California we have a digital literacy initiative we could share with Washington. BD
Members of the new Congress devoted a portion of their second day of the new term to reading the U.S. Constitution on the floor of the House of Representatives.
