Nuke the fillibuster. Fuck Moscow Mitchy. He’s done having been re-elected and serving his final Putin term, granted, six years is a long time.

And, and, and remember that the record holder for filibustering was the father of a daughter he never publicly acknowledged during his life. Yea, good enough to fuck but not good enough to exist. Or vote.

Nuke the filibuster and ram shit through. And WV and Joey? Fuck him too (but shhh, not yet, he’s going repub soon enough)

    Have a concern about great music? Or was it the poster art? Swampscunt got you down?

    From my interpretation, the art is antithetical to the concert’s purpose.

    But but but we have a system of coequal branches of government that works just as intended by the constitution and the really great amazing founding fathers who all had no flaws.

    Here is what you shared:

    How is that evidentiary?
    That there is the "nuclear option" which would allow the Senate to bypass the standing rules (60-40) and that the VP could break a 50-50 tie does not seem to be evidence of anything, other than the fact that the "nuclear option" would be able to provide a definitive result on a vote.

    How does that provide evidence that it must go?
    If there is a workable option for anything, in the governmental process, is that then evidence that the existing process must cede to the workable option?

    This does not make sense to me.
    Perhaps you meant something else -- I was only reading what you wrote and the understanding provided by the words used.

    Perhaps precedent would've been a better word, from a legislative standpoint, though still not quite correct.

    Anyway, I get what ymalkiel is trying to say. Basically, the constitution stipulates 51-50, which later legislative bodies then revised to 60-40.

    This is just one of those cases in which folks will find themselves on the the side of the framers when it serves their interests. When the constitution does not serve their interest, of course, then it is an ancient document written by white supremacist goons. 

    I tend to always agree with the latter and think the whole fucking thing should be revised every 10 years or so with the census.

    I know.  That was the argument that was given to me on this board many times when I was crying about electoral politics during the presidential election.  And I used the same argument about how nowhere in the constitution is there mention of democrats or republicans or a two party system.  Yes the filibuster is a racist tool of white supremacy.  And needs to go.  Please excuse my earlier sarcasm

    Fillibuster racist?  It's a means of blocking a bill from being passed or counted, not sure how it's racist?  Or is it because of everything else mentioned in the proposed bill?

    Asking a question.

    Also if the fillibuster goes you'll have Mitch on record stating that he would make things very difficult for anything to go through by the opposition.  He means what he says.  He'd screw up something that he wrote even if the dems supported it, he is that vengeful. I'm shocked he said that out in public and people will still vote for him?  It really is party first and country second.

    Filibuster has been around wayyyyy longer than Mitch or Obama.  James Stewart was talking about this in a damn movie in 1939 and it was around before then.

    I would say that the comment was meant to eliminate a dem from office rather than because he was black but eh, I don't think everyone is a racist.

    the way our government functions now with minority in the senate controlling everything is not the way the government was designed.
    I know.  That was the argument that was given to me on this board many times when I was crying about electoral politics during the presidential election.  And I used the same argument about how nowhere in the constitution is there mention of democrats or republicans or a two party system.  Yes the filibuster is a racist tool of white supremacy.  And needs to go.  Please excuse my earlier sarcasm
    Fillibuster racist?  It's a means of blocking a bill from being passed or counted, not sure how it's racist?  Or is it because of everything else mentioned in the proposed bill?

    Asking a question.

    Also if the fillibuster goes you'll have Mitch on record stating that he would make things very difficult for anything to go through by the opposition.  He means what he says.  He'd screw up something that he wrote even if the dems supported it, he is that vengeful. I'm shocked he said that out in public and people will still vote for him?  It really is party first and country second.

    Filibuster has been around wayyyyy longer than Mitch or Obama.  James Stewart was talking about this in a damn movie in 1939 and it was around before then.

    I would say that the comment was meant to eliminate a dem from office rather than because he was black but eh, I don't think everyone is a racist.
    The filibuster wasn’t always racist. But it has been used over the years to suppress civil rights.

    Being a product of American democracy designed by wealthy white men trying to evade taxes and make their livings off the backs of people with different colored skin makes it as inherently racist as any part of our government I guess.   While it may not be an exclusively racist tactic it has certainly been used a majority of the time to block progress and civil rights legislation.
