Just because a legitimate argument can be made and it would make me laugh. The House should vote to censure McCarthy for engaging in threats and general dishonesty.

Do you really want to project that much?  Especially when there are plenty of people in your caucus who aren't necessarily squeaky clean.

Censure Boebert for her actions.
Censure Gaetz for storming the SCIF.
Censure Jordan for his actions.

cretinbob: The reason being that they are tiny dick bigots


I will just post this here for the hell of it...

2.45/5 rDev +22.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 4

Upon opening it, I felt as if a dead skunk had farted directly into my face. I then noticed the sweet aroma, which had hints of Zyklon B, Sarin, and rotting fecal matter. Mild undertones of oak. As it pours into the mouth you notice the dread first. An abomination such as this biological horror is an affront to God Himself. The foam coats your tongue and stings like razor blades coated with ghost pepper and salt. It goes down like Fluoroantimonic acid and triggers a wave of potentially deadly seizures. The more brew that flows FROM the can, the more of your soul flows IN to the can. The aftertaste is comparable to going down on an old Taiwanese hooker at the end of her shift, in the dark with bad aim on your part. I mean really, you were drunk as hell and God only knows what you put your mouth on. As this concoction reaches your stomach you get the feeling that you've been brutally violated several times but upon calling 911, they just told you that "You can NOT undo what has been done". You and you alone caused this atrocity. You immediately begin feeling as if you've inadvertently murdered the entire human race. Your genitals shrivel up and turn to dust as you watch in horror. The screams of men, women, and children beg you-BEG YOU, to kill them. It becomes apparent that you have unleashed an unyeilding evil. A dark and malignant miasma. The fallen angels bellow with reverence, vindication, and approval. The shadow grows near. You feel as if you have caused an extinction level event and more suffering than any intelligent being in the entire Universe could ever comprehend. As this surprisingly affordable brew is exposed to the oxygen in the air, it reacts like a fine wine. This aeration causes the smell of chlorine gas and the taste of sulfur and moldy roadkill. God is dead. Blood pours from the sky in torrents as dying children cry out for their parents. All semblance of mercy, of law, order, and justice has been erased. And what rough beast, it's hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Overall Opinion:

Not bad for the value and would consider it a great beer for casual get-togethers and cookouts!

Jan 24, 2021It was about Busch beer but I think it is a perfect post for anything. It is a beer I am drinking not for taste but a very low alcohol content.

McCarthy has painted himself into a corner where his only options are to appease the alt-right goons who are the real powerbrokers in his inner circle or give up and resign. He must keep screaming into the void or be consumed by it.

The Alt-Right Playbook: You Go High, We Go Low
Youtube MAbab8aP4_A


Way to take the high road, madam.

Let me be clear - when your enemies re-takes the House in 2022 (lawfully or unlawfully, because "lawful" is one of those words that becomes fuzzy when you're talking to state lawmakers who control the process by which elections are run and monitored and the "legitimacy" of a vote is decided), you'll be censured just for showing up at work. Your party members will be censured for their choice of kitchenware.

By contrast, your enemies, when they literally call for the unspeakable, will not be censured, they will be applauded and appointed to your committee seats..

You go high, they go low. This is part of why you lose elections you should have won, and why elections that should have been landslides are nailbiters. Your refusal to recognize that you are at war (even after, you know, insurrectionists literally burst into your farking chamber as it was trying to certify the results of a free and fair election) is why you have already lost the second civil war.
 
2021-11-27 11:07:33 PM  
I figure the Republican plan is to keep anything from progressing long enough that the middle right voters will hate the Democrats and swing the mid terms.

Right now there are 13 states where Republican lawmakers will replace a Democrat Senator if they die or get too sick to work.

This current nonsense is going to turn into life long petty feuds  and I think it is another reason why term limits aren't a bad thing.  There are enough states finding out that term limits are shifting power to the states without them because of Senate seniority rules.  The idea of the senate was every member was equal rank to every other senator but that hasn't been the case since about the 2nd senate in ancient Rome.

This isn't political tit for tat.
This is brinksmanship.
And the only way to solve it, is total war and subjugation. If not via superior firepower, then superior economic power.

They want standardized testing? Fine. Let's standardize these tests to show the south for what it really was. Mandate CRT. Mandate Gender studies in sex ed.

Let's tax churches and give those martyr freaks something to really be angry about.

Let's raise taxes on gun sales and ammo sales. Oh you pack your own brass? Good luck getting access to primers.

You want federal government out of your state business? Cool. No more federal tax dollars for you.

You want to spout the most vile and heinous shiat propagandized from foreign nationals? Not on FCC airwaves, good luck spreading your shiat on ham radios in the open spectrum, feel free to claim victimhood screaming in to the void.

Prosecute stochastic terrorism. Oh you wanted to show political violence as a freedom of speech and a church got shot up from one of your followers? Enjoy your felony.

No more anonymity on the internet. It's farking done. Your ISP will now be like a yellow pages to look you up like a Terminator hunting Sarah Conner.

Or we can just embrace the insanity. And let an entire political party that should be marginalized and on the fringes of society continue to be the major player and decision maker that threatens to undermine the very foundations of our society that we have fought for and protected and tried to spread around the world and have it all go up in flames.

I don't understand how rational, non idiot extreme people can look at the GOP and not be a bit repulsed. They have become a political clown show.

Its absurd that they have a chance of retaking the house, that so many Americans can support them, that gerrymandering is allowed for 40% of voters to control who wins so many districts.

What a dysfunctional system!
