How a War Bill Becomes a War Law

For those of you who were fans of Schoolhouse Rock or didn't get drunk before high school Civics, and know how regular bills become laws, you'll appreciate Fafblog's attempt to educate us on how a War Bill becomes a War Law.

Q. How does a War Bill become a War Law?

A. It all begins with the president, who submits a bill to the president.
If a majority of both the president and the president approve the bill,
then it passes on to the president, who may veto it or sign it into law.
And even then the president can override himself with a two-thirds vote.

Any questions?

    No questions. I think that about nails it.

    That's not exactly how I remember the School House Rock version, but I like it. Except for the veto part, of course. Let's be honest, Our Dear Leader never met a bill he didn't like.

    Well, 'cept for that Clinton fella.

    The 2/3 majority and then there is the 1/3 - his left buttock and left foot who fillibustered against the bill, but the majority won.

    Sorry Cookie, but you've been tagged. Come over, if Bart can be trusted on his own for a bit, and see what you're up against.

    Luckily, we have the Presidential hand-picked Supreme Court to provide a check on his power. By "check" I mean, of course, "rubber stamp".
