What's she going to do, scalp them?

If she doesn't run for President I'm going to cry.

I think it's time that the term "nuclear option" gets more literal when talking about the GOP.

They're not going to do a damn thing before the midterms.  Nobody is.

Republicans are scum. Their supporters are, by extension, scum.

This isn't particularly difficult.

The issue is when scum doesn't want to own being scum.

When did the talking filibuster stop happening? Make the farkers get behind their convictions and go all "Mr. Smith"

Irving Maimway: When did the talking filibuster stop happening? Make the farkers get behind their convictions and go all "Mr. Smith"


It stopped in the 1920s.

Mr. Smith goes to Washington was dated when it came out. In reality, the Senate could have voted for cloture and gotten him to shut up at any time. Same goes for Strom Thurmond's famous filibuster of the Civil Rights Act, and Rand Paul's one from earlier this year. It's just theater that the majority allows because they either don't care about because they're winning, or simply don't want to look like they're preventing people from having a say.

Then make them do it like they made Wendy Davis filibuster. No leaning, no bathroom, just standing and talking.

That's the way filibuster should be. It's not for inconveniencing the Senate, it's for standing on your principles occasionally, even if they are doomed. And if you have to talk til you drop, then it probably won't last more than 12 hours.
 
2013-11-15 07:27:41 PM
COnsidering what the filibuster has become, and that it is used so disproportionately, I guess the paradigm has shifted.  So fark it. R's usually can peel off a few D's anyway.

Do it.

Democrats threaten 'nuclear option' over Republicans' war on women Obama nominees

Stop threatening and do it.  These people aren't going to ever start acting like adults, so f*ck them.

And this history of ridiculous GOP "filibusters" (that aren't really filibusters) has become established by these farktards, meaning the Dems will use it just as pell-mell as the GOP and justify it with precedent.

The so-called filibuster is dead.  Either make the fkrs talk until they fall over or dump it.

Agreed. And I don't see the GOP taking the Senate again any time soon, so there's very little downside here.

Elizabeth Warren isn't the messiah

So vote republican or something... i've never been that impressed with here. She's all talk like every other politician.
Obama was the same way before he got elected.  I don't see how she is of any substantive difference from any other part of the broken retardation that is washington except that she spouts enough OMG BANKS WALLSTREET SUCK to get people to eat that shiat up.  She's like a left wing Ron Paul.

I see you keep earning that orange color. I agree completely, especially since the day the Republicans gain control of the Senate is the day the filibuster dies. Kill it now and you can at least get some of your agenda pushed through.

If it turns out she's full of shiat, well, that would be disappointing.

But at least she's saying the right things now. No one else is.

Filibustering legislation is idiotic but there's a defensible rationale for being able block a lifetime-appointed federal judge. So naturally, the Senate might do away with the justifiable (but abused) rule but not the profoundly anti democratic legislative filibuster.

Look Dems. You can't keep threatening to use the "Nuclear option" if you are unwilling to us it.

Go ahead already.

Democrats filibustered Miguel Estrada for the same judicial position in 2003 (he was unanimously rated "well-qualified").  They have no moral high ground.  And they're bluffing about the nuclear option.

If I were a GOP senator, I'd lift the filibuster if the Democrats nominate Miguel Estrada to one of the openings.

That's all politicians do is talk. Their job is to put issues in a certain way to convince her colleagues to vote in certain ways.

The last I heard, the republicans were blocking ALL judicial nominations, not just the women.  So it's not another "war on women".  It's part of their continued war on Obama.

There needs to be a change in law where a nomination must be reviewed within a certain amount of time or they are automatically considered accepted.  Both parties are guilty of blocking nominations.  The democats did it when Bush was in office, but the republicans have taken it to a whole new level.

Honestly, I don't see either of these things as necessarily a bad thing. Egypt tried shutting up the opposition; it doesn't work so well in democracies.

Personally, it seems to me that the issue comes from the framing of the Constitution (oh boy doesn't that sound like a ledge to walk out on). Essentially, the Constitution was developed to prevent the tyranny of the majority and the the tyranny of dynasty. What the founders failed to predict was a tyranny of the minority. Beats me how to suggest a solution though. . .

And there are black people that love watermelon and fried chicken.
And Mexicans that love beans.
And Asians that popped out of holes in the ground like jungle bunnies.

So obviously none of that is racist or hate speech as well.

Glad somebody beat me to it.  Scalping wasnt about trophies originally, you traded scalps for cash.  Indian scalps.


Of course some old cowboys found a work around for that, indian scalps were hard to come by.  But unsuspecting dark haired pioneer family scalps?  shiat, find them all over the place.

For no good reason the Republicans have blocked, or tried to block every nomination President Obama has chosen. It is irrelevant who or the vacancy. They are nothing but butt hurt assholes with a vendetta against the President for winning the elections. Never in modern history have we seen such actions and behavior. These assholes should be punished for their blatant actions against the United States.

These self declared Patriots talk so much about "the will of Americans". Well the "will of Americans" is to have our nations leader be President Obama. Do you understand that? We WANT him as our leader. We chose and willfully elected him. You don't have any respect for our choices and continue to push your narrow mined ideologue as if we don't matter. Well we do matter. My political donations are no longer diversified between parties. All donations typically allocated for Republican candidates are now allocated towards Republican opposition and/or opponents. Granted several thousand dollars from one individual will have little impact, but many share my sentiment just as many chose our President. Instead of just choosing my preferred statue, I actively oppose the Republican party and will do so for years to come.

Wait, she falsely claims Native American heritage*, and I mock her for it, and I'm wrong?

Hell, look at my profile.  I've got not a drop of Native American blood in me, to the best of my knowledge, and despite the fact that I occasionally mohawk my hair, stick feathers in it, and run around the woods with a tomahawk and a flintlock, I'd never claim to be something I'm not.

*No one has come up with any indication that she has held any interest whatsoever in her alleged heritage, and in fact at the very, very most, she *MAY* be 1/32nd Cherokee, and even that is in serious doubt as no Cherokee genealogist has been able to verify it.
