JulieAzel626: Farkin Fark Orange fark

WASHINGTON (AP) - Trump says Republicans have 'obligation' to move forward with selection of new Supreme Court justice 'without delay.'


But of course. McConnell's precedent was always obstructionist bullsh*t and should not have been tolerated at the time. They were never going to allow that precedent to stand in the way of their objectives. And *when* they take away the ballot box from the people I really hope America is up to the task of rectifying the situation.

Taylor Mental: badtrotsky013: Taylor Mental: Regarding RBG's passing and the looming battle over her replacement -- one weapon Dems have is the upcoming need to pass an omnibis funding bill before the end of the month. Schumer could shut down the government by blocking it for a month unless McConnell forestalls his crazy court-packing plan.

But it will take a lot of outrage from Dems out in the country to produce such political will in the US Senate. So naturally it won't happen.

I heard in the other place the dems could simply walk. They need 60 to put one in. They only got 51.

60 is the number of votes needed to pass major budgetary law.

Moscow Mitch changed the Senate rule for judicial appointments to a simple majority.

Whoever told you different is wrong. It's why I don't hang out there.


What they said was deny the needed 60 for Quorum. Basically, all Senate Dems stay home.

Darth_Lukecash: Taylor Mental: So I rode down to the general store tonight and passed our polling station at the volunteer fire department. They have a Trump-Pence 2020 sign out front. And they send me letters asking for a donation. Sheesh.

That is a direct violation of voting laws.

If it is a polling place, no political signs should be visible


In Texas, all political signage must be a minimum of 150 linear feet from the entrance to the polling place.  The term "Entrance to the polling place" in locations where the polling station is located within another building can be interpreted as either the outer doors of the building or the inner doors of the actual polling station.

The senate requires 51 to be on the floor for a quorum. Democrats would need some other procedural alley to block or delay till a clock runs out, quorum calls and filibusters are not going to work.
 
2020-09-19 11:47:55 AM  
and on the 60-vote thing, someone probably just confused cloture and quorum. Regardless, McConnell eliminated the 60-vote cloture requirement for judiciary appointments.

Can only hope he ends up regretting that decision in January.

There was a time. Once, long ago.
Where people would gather.
In a hotel lobby.

And there were omelettes, and eggs to order. And waffles and pancakes. Fruits, juices, cereals,.... everything you could have ever imagined in one room....

But we can't ever have that again.

I wear 'em for the first part of winter, and then, when shiat gets really bad and everything is too slippery for life, I switch to a boot that's a little less prone to hardening in the cold.
