(The New York Times)   Republicans packed the Supreme Court, put kids in cages at the border, demand their religion be taught to our kids in public school, force the middle-class to pay for oil subsidies, and somehow WE'RE the radicals?   (nytimes.com) divider line

Tabletop: jst3p: punkwrestler: jst3p: punkwrestler: Tabletop: Lol, Republicans only packed the supreme court if you accept the new definition of court packing that didn't exist a week ago. By the same method, everyone on fark is now a violent rapist.

Actually they did by any definition the kept seats on the Supreme Court and lower court open until their guy could be elected. They packed the court, there is no other definition that works.

"Packing the court" means expanding how many members there are and appointing Justices from your political party. This has been the meaning of the phrase since at least FDR threatened to do it.

As I said before, the GoP stole two seats, they did not pack the court.

Well guess what the meaning of things can change. What the Republicans did was steal like 200 judicial seats.

The meaning hasn't changed, you and others are misusing it. I think it would be fair to say they stacked the lower courts but "packing the court" still means something different. I hope if Biden wins and the dems take the Senate that they actually pack the court.

They're hoping that if they misuse it enough, the meaning will change and they can claim the Republicans did it first. It's a very dishonest way to try to win support for something.


It's the way language and politics works so suck it.

BTW have you also corrected the Republicans when they keep calling Joe a socialist? If not maybe stop being a hypocritical partisan hack.

I correct everyone on every side when they call taxing capitalism and using that tax money on public works socialism.

And yeah, politics is a dishonest business. Real cool of you to decide to embrace it. Very post truth, very modern, very hip.

Eat FARKING DOGSH*T.  The GOP held non-appellate openings to the federal bench when Obama was president.  They cut the length of debate for judicial appointees from 30 hours to 2.  Then they packed the courts.  Go eat all the dicks next to your disingenuous argument.


I am not going to eat dogshiat because your are ignorance makes you angry and hostile.

Read a book, or a link, and educate yourself. I fully agree that what they did was reprehensible but words mean things even if you don't know it

I hadn't considered that, I was merely attributing it to ignorance, but there could be some malice involved as well. Sad.

punkwrestler: Weatherkiss: Yeah, too bad Democratic Primary voters decided the best possible choice for President is the guy who says his best selling point is that he can work with Republicans. We get the government we deserve.

You mean the guy who actually has a chance to win. Do you really think any other candidate would be doing as well as Biden right now?


I'm 32, and given what I've seen through much of my lifetime, Democrats have a shiatty sense of what's "electable" and what "isn't electable".

2004: Democratic Party leaders said that Howard Dean wasn't "electable", and insisted John Kerry was. We went with Kerry. He lost.

2008: Democratic Party leaders said that Barack Obama wasn't "electable", and insisted Hillary Clinton was. We went with Obama. He won. Twice.

2016: Democratic Party leaders said that Bernie Sanders wasn't "electable", and insisted Hillary Clinton was. We went with Clinton. She lost.

The first step is getting rid of trump, if we can't do that there is no next step and none of the opponents could do that.

That was the same refrain in 2016, and here we are.

The people who are adamant that Bernie would've also lost to Trump are actually admitting that they wouldn't have "voted blue, no matter who".

This is all I see. Not much to go on.

DONNELLSON, Iowa - "Where'd you get these apples?" asked Theresa Greenfield, the Democratic Senate candidate turned pie taster at a farm in Southeast Iowa.
Steve, it was explained, had picked the apples at Bob's. Bob gave them to Beth. Beth Howard then made a pie using her famous recipe and offered a piece to Ms. Greenfield during the first stop of the day on her "Back On Our Feet" tour.

Democrats always run to the middle during the election season, they don't actually mean it, it's just a political ploy.  A Harris/Biden administration would not be center left.


So, are you saying that Biden/Harris would be center-right. Makes sense.

jimjays: FatherChaos: Because King Dump keeps saying "Radical Democrats" over and over and over. His cultists and sycophant supporters in Congress keep hearing it and eventually come to believe it's true.

It's not just Trump. It's most Republican pols and Fox. And it's always "far left" or "radical left, or as you said "radical democrats"" that are moving left, without discussion of the GOP moving to the right and forsaking truth. They are, though, butthurt that liberals and mainstream media won't take them at their word. I'm personally most offended when they refer to themselves and Republican voters as "real Americans" as if there's only one kind and anyone not on their team isn't a real American--and never mind what they've been advocating for three years is fascism.

I didn't know that having all your moderate primary opponents suddenly dropping out and all endorsing Biden just prior to Super Tuesday while the only progressive primary candidate other than Sanders stays on, which split the progressive vote, while promising nothing additional nor changing anything in his campaign that would get more people to vote for him, counted as "turning his campaign around".

Even if it wasn't a conspiracy, it could certainly be implied a conspiracy with the candidates simultaneously endorsing Biden after collectively dropping out during the biggest primary week, while Biden was behind in the polls and only won one state (a near-certain Republican state win in the general election for that matter, where voter suppression in Democratic strongholds in that state had been occurring). Much more so than your stupid idea that a person announcing their candidacy for a political contest can be considered a conspiracy.

Now, now, Democrats are obviously the radicals.  You just have to look at it from their frame of reference.

Of course, that frame of reference is some guy from the 1600s, probably named Makepeace or Feargod, who thinks that women should be segregated in a special hut during their unclean time, and also that headaches are caused by demons, because the contemporary medical theory of imbalanced humours is far, far too liberal for him.

Not that they don't believe in laws, it's just that they should not be applied to themselves and only be used as a tool by the powerful to punish their enemies.
*when their opponents have power they are first and foremost labeled as illegitimate, because no one should rule except themselves.

DarkSoulNoHope: monsatano: DarkSoulNoHope: monsatano: Weatherkiss: Yeah, too bad Democratic Primary voters decided the best possible choice for President is the guy who says his best selling point is that he can work with Republicans. We get the government we deserve.

Yeah blah people are stupid amirite

You implied black people, monsatano. Weatherkiss said "Democratic Primary voters" meaning without regard to race, sex or other factors. So stop being racist by implying only black Americans voted for Biden and stop putting words into someone else's post.

Yes, because the black vote in SC had nothing to do with Biden turning his campaign around and winning the nomination.

I didn't know that having all your moderate primary opponents suddenly dropping out and all endorsing Biden just prior to Super Tuesday while the only progressive primary candidate other than Sanders stays on, which split the progressive vote, while promising nothing additional nor changing anything in his campaign that would get more people to vote for him, counted as "turning his campaign around".


Its called winning

There is a reason they are called the American Taliban.

Thinking ISIS represents every single Muslim is like thinking the Westboro Baptist Church represents every single Christian.

/Pointing out that 99.9999% of all Muslims aren't extremists isn't "politically correct", it's CORRECT correct.

Too bad that the .0001% that are extremists are in charge.

All religions are bad, so get rid of them all.

You're assuming that Islam is more monolithic than it actually is.


I keep forgetting that there is as much infighting amongst the various sects of Islam as there is for the various sects of Christianity.

More so, even.

We had a Secretary of State, multiple term Senator, Legal scholar, and had been in the WH before and she was probably the most highly prepared candidate in a generation.  Americans don't want people in government to be able administrators, they want them to play sax, have a beer with them and shoot the rock from outside.  Flash more than substance.

America is a budding collapsed empire.  We are Rome and the barbarians aren't at the gate.  They are the farking GOP and rural Americans.


I remember hearing how at his cabinet meetings, Obama would call on each department head for an assessment, and then when they finished he would call on Hillary to comment as well. For every department.

Republicans hate everything this country stood for and have been trying for years to turn it into The Handmaid's Tale.

Latest example: a judge of 2 years who is ultra conservative getting onto the Supreme Court. 2 years experience. Let that sink in.
