You know, so they don't try to murder us.
That's a fact, Jack.
You think not?
I wish there was someway for him to get one of those infamous LBJ "arm twisting, not arm twisting" ... LOL
January 6 changed me, and I was very clear with everybody. never thought in my life — I never read in history books — to where our form of government had been attacked at our seat of government which is Washington DC, our own Capitol, by our own people.Now the British did it, but not Americans. So something told me, 'Wait a minute, pause. Hit the pause button, something's wrong. You can't have this many people split to where they want to go to war with each other.'It wasn't for lack of trying, Joe. Perhaps you remember reading about the Civil War? The descendants of those same ideas are what lead to January 6.
Well, it's not like Gaetz was doing anything remotely legislative anyway...
As it stands, Gaetz is a spectacularly unproductive Florida Republican who never managed, during his first two terms in the House, to get a single bill that he sponsored signed into law. (We are still crossing our fingers for that post-office-naming he co-sponsored.) Meanwhile, by Forbes’s count, he has appeared on Fox News at least 179 times since taking office.
HA! True. Sometimes all the options are shitty ones.
The chances of that happening are very slim
Why does bipartisanship only come up when Democrats are in power? When the GOP is in power, they boast about their "mandate" to do what they want. Joe Manchin needs to grow up and stop being so naive.
I mostly agree with you, but I haven't yet seen Biden giving in to the other side yet. I could be wrong but he hasn't mentioned bipartisanship yet. Which is interesting because he's been in the senate for so long, a place where Democrats being "friends" with the other side was thought of being so wonderful. We'll see.
“You were given the choice between war and dishonour. You chose dishonour, and you will have war." I hope Joe Manchin thinks about that.
The makeup of the U.S. Senate gives over-representation to less populous states, that is the nature of it. If a vote in California was given as much representation as a vote in South Dakota, the Senate would easily have a Democratic majority. It's like the House of Lords for the United States.
Sure, if the premise was based on population.Except that, it's not. Any such intended construction is opinion. The founders set it up intentionally. AND, senators are now elected, when, originally, they were appointed by legislatures.
For a rugged outdoorsy lookin guy from West Virginia, he seems to have misplaced his spine. Shame.
Bipartisanship = "Bend over - here it comes!"
I'm beginning to think this is some kabuki theatre shit Schumer cooked up to reach a point where it will be so obvious that the filibuster will have to be (reformed/trashed), Joe will be set up to have a change of heart without losing his seat in his next election.
Schumer just seems too damned confident in every interview he does, and it seems to be more than just politician putting on a good face.
