When it comes to reversing legislation in January, Biden still has a veto.

How did they get Sinema to stop f*cking around?  Explain to her that if they lose the majority her power goes away and she loses her next election, plus no Democratic or Republican think tank would touch her?  I hope they played on her terror of being poor again.

Well they just prevented the Federal government from telling small business owners what they can sell their products for. Proudly protecting America from the socialist squad and their allies.

The GOP is only offering one thing right now, but it's powerful.

They tell people they don't need to be ashamed of thinking "those" people are not normal and should be shunned from society. That makes them feel better about themselves.

Liberals tell them that they should accept people as they are and their feelings mean they are bad and should feel bad. They doesn't like feeling bad, and changing their feelings means they're wrong and liberals are right, even more painful than the guilt they're made to feel over thinking "those" people are bad.

Came here to say this.  Unless the Republican fantasy of Trump somehow being reinstalled as President comes true, this legislation is safe for at least 2.5 years...hopefully forever.

The republicans just blocked capping insulin at $35. Who are the morons voting for these idiots?
 
2022-08-07 11:28:57 AM  
So Marco Rubio has to make the trip for no other reason that to be the butt of Fark in the episode we call "Little Marco Rubio complains about having to do his job." where our boy uses the word "Woke" in a strange context for a Republican --

"Woke up at 5am to a 3am email that my 8:30am flight was cancelled," Rubio tweeted on Saturday afternoon. "But they rebooked me on an 8pm flight tomorrow night with one connection Now in DC for the joy that is 'vote a rama' on a garbage bill."

Even Josh Hawley stopped running long enough to try to get a $35 limit on insulin into the bill along with six other Republicans.   Garbage bill indeed.  Retail Rubio wants you to pay full price and more.

More specifically, they are people who believe EVERYTHING is a zero sum game; if someone other than them gets X it means that they don't get any. And they can't have that. IF they're going to have to go without so some worthless minority can have they may as well fark everybody else out of spite. "If I don't get mine no one else gets it."

Basically: people who would cut off their own noses to spite their faces.

Gubbo: Did you see all the Centrists voting against things that our beloved Progressives wanted.

Truly the Centrists are just as bad as Republicans. Worse even.


The Centrists of Manchin and Sinema, still have not allowed the dropping of the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation. This still makes them horrible people, especially since to get more legislation to pass to improve on this within Biden's presidency, we need both houses of Congress to remain on the Democratic Party side, and without voting rights legislation this makes the prospect of keeping Congress especially difficult if not impossible if Republicans are allowed to make elections unfairly tilted towards themselves.

Centrists are horrible people because they claim to look at both sides of the argument, but fail to see the stupidity of thinking there is a between to "Never kill nor oppress anyone" from the left and "Kill and oppress whose characteristics we don't like" from the right!

So what you're saying is "A HURR A HURR DURR HURRR"

Also, the GOP has done nothing of the sort. Saying such things is straight up lying. Which makes you a shiatty farking person. Why are you a shiatty farking liar? And why do you think it's ok for you people to just lie all the time?

I want an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week. But all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special biweekly meeting. By a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs, but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more...

I saw the same ad and my wife asked about it. I pointed out that quite literally 95% of all medicine research is done with either government grants or in government labs. In short, it's bullshiat.

Not really. I was already working there as a janitor. It's really just an extension of my roll as a janitor. But here's the thing. 90% of the time when I explain that I'm required to do an inspection, they turn around and walk away. Some grab a mall cop and come back complaining about some ZZTop looking crazy old man but the cops explain to them that it's my job. Occasionally, someone prepares to actually give me a free show but I always stop them and point to the sign which says "lady's room" and tell them that what they're doing isn't very lady-like so they'll have to leave. It's a pretty good system and has made cleaning the place much easier. The mall management likes the fact that I've really cut down on restocking expenses.

That's what I don't get about cameras in bathrooms. I figure the women are there to fuss with their makeup or doing other womanly maintenance. Routine maintenance doesn't sound like much of a turn-on. Stuff like tampon replacement and such. It seems like something I don't want to know about.

My brother went to the dark side. He is one of those random yelling about trans bathroom attacks that never happen.
