Word to FastTadPole

Wink  Word to FastTadPole
I was just over in Breaking the Chains answering a post to H3rm35 and you popped into my head. (Not much room in there and you took up all the available space). Icon_cool

Anyway, we are having a side discussion about people who are NOT aware of how bills come into being before they are signed into law. I had just been made aware of the fact that bills are most often times years in the making. They just don't come into being in a week or a month. I had never given that any thought.

I had mentioned that there are not any really good pieces of information on that subject out there to educate people. But here is the thought that came to mind.

I had said in the thread that if someone was to go out on the street and ask people if they knew how a bill is made they would most likely not know. Then it hit me. Ask FastTadPole to take out his video camera and do a man on the street video about what the American doesn't know about House and Senate BILLS - their origin, who writes them and how long it takes. Then post it to the forum for approval and possibly put it on the net.

You are just the guy to do this. You have two boys who would learn a great deal from it no doubt. Radical idea but I know you love challenges that are different. You would make a name for yourself no doubt.

Great idea.

There are holes in this plan though.

#1: I have no video camera
#2: The US is far. The nearest city, Great Falls, MT, is 500 miles away.

Here in Canada we use something similar to the British System

* House of Commons 1st Reading
* House of Commons 2nd Reading
* House of Commons 3rd Reading
* Senate Reading(s)
* Royal Assent (Queen or Governor General)

We learn that in grade 4 or 5 this side of the border. I think I went over Private Member Bills in another thread not too long ago.
There are no others, there is only us.

LOL tad re we learn that in gr 4-5 yep.... reminds me of the ol mercer pieces, better know an american!!!! funny shit would be awesome fun, i got the equipment but am also like 200 miles from the boarder as well as lacking in a passport to cross right now, i'm sure the idea could be picked up by someone here who is in america, but then they will be pretty disgusted in there fellows and and not want to post it prob, as it might damage the america #1 myth lol
Remember Knowledge is the only thing THEY can't take from you, and Knowledge is Know how, and Know how is Power!!!

Here's a crib sheet on how Canadian law is passed --

Rick Mercer is a government shill, controlled opposition, a Canadian version of Jon Stewart. I do have to admit, he is entertaining at times. This clip is designed to make Canadians feel smarter, give us a national unified identity and boost morale in order to increase worker productivity.

RE: Word to FastTadPole
There is a work around for this however, (aside from no video). If you knew where the visiting Americans hung out while in your part of Canada you could always interview those. That would probably make more of an impact anyway. The "Hey these people don't even know about their own system" type thing.

I, for some strange reason never thought about you not being in the US. Of course being 500 miles away isn't very convenient. But then back to the video issue again - if you knew where the Americans hung out up there that would most likely suffice. And if you knew a family member or friend that had a video recorder and would trust you to borrow it.....

Oh sounded really good anyway.
