Leave it to Congress to do the absolutely bare minimum symbolic action while actually doing anything of substance to address a problem.

Let's all watch President Joe finally sight the legislation

Don't tell me he's going to shoot it.

The new holiday is "about farking time." but they only gave federal agencies like 4 hours notice that it will take effect tomorrow and not wait until 2022. So it really sucks for all the members of the public that have appointments tomorrow with INS, IRS, etc., that weren't that easy to get in the first place.
 
2021-06-17 3:45:35 PM  
Fashionably late, or did they move the start time back?
 
2021-06-17 3:45:39 PM  
it's live now.
 
2021-06-17 3:45:47 PM  
Here come da Joe.
 
2021-06-17 3:45:54 PM

2021-06-17 3:46:12 PM  
So, no mail tomorrow?

Thanks, I hadn't been paying attention. Added my thumbs-up to the pile.

Since I haven't been following the news on this (only the headlines), I was under the impression that this bill failed.

So I am thrilled to see that I was wrong about that, and the bill is actually being signed into law.  that is farking awesome!

I wouldn't buy tickets for it... but I'd sure watch the video more than once
 
2021-06-17 3:51:08 PM  
Agreed. Sometimes history can be a joy to watch.
 
2021-06-17 3:51:22 PM  
Flag has the correct number of fringes. This thing looks legit.
 
2021-06-17 3:51:22 PM  
So what went on between Biden and Opal Lee? The camera didn't really catch it.
 
2021-06-17 3:51:29 PM  
If this is a small first step towards more steps, farking great.  If this is it, not so great at all.

Which means someone did something correctly.

Wait, this is a good question.  I'm waiting on a really important letter.  Is the mail going to be delivered tomorrow?

Senate passed it by unanimous consent - House passed it with only 20 or 21 Republicans voting against it
 
2021-06-17 3:52:07 PM  
Wow.  A federal holiday?

I bet this will have as big an impact on people's ways of thinking as Labor did on people's feelings toward worker's health, safety, and pay.
 
2021-06-17 3:52:16 PM  
I like how he did it late enough in the day so the Republicans couldn't meet to propose legislation prohibiting the teaching of what Juneteenth is until at least tomorrow.

You'll get over it.

i am so glad that previous presidential timeline is fading.
it's so nice to get these slices of normalcy and honesty appearing again.

Yes, but don't hold out hope for Saturday.

*sigh* another historic moment in my life ho-hum.

/ 2016-2020 left me permanently blase
// I jest. This is very righteous and well overdue.

two years from now, "Come in for our Juneteenth sale everything in the store is 60% off!!"

Well, of course I speak for almost everyone when I say, "farking Republicans".

Glad the comments are turned off.  How does anyone think Juneteenth does not deserve to be a national holiday?  I thought we all loved freedom.
 
2021-06-17 3:55:57 PM  
Noticeably absent is any attempt to actually stop police violence and change their culture.

Which is what people wanted.
 
2021-06-17 3:56:27 PM  
Posturing is not a replacement for actually doing shiat.

Do some shiat. Like, make lives better and stuff. You know, the entire point of your jobs.

That's nearly 2/3rds the price!

Good start, now get the cops to stop people.

It's even better... it's 3/5th off.

Bingo!

It's great to finally get a holiday to observe this, but that's not what's really needed the most right now

Which sick bastard will sell their stuff for 3/5ths?
