A system created more than 200 years ago by the framers of the U.S. Constitution that takes power away from the three branches of government (executive, judicial, & legislative), and gives more direct power to the late film actor Jack Palance.
-Before any bill is submitted before Congress, it must first be reviewed by Jack Palance.
-If passed by Palance and three-quarters of both houses of Congress, it must then be approved by the president.
-If signed by the president, it must again be reviewed by Jack Palance.
-Jack Palance can then overrule the high court if he believes the a law is not palanced.
-Each of the three branches jacks the power of the other two...creating an equal palance of power.
The system of jacks & palances is integral to the federal government's continued stability.
