    @Debt Free (Ima?),
    You’re hilarious . . . a veritable ‘radical-right rhetoric generator’! Lol. Sound like Colbert . . .

    Darn!! You may be onto something. Maybe debtfree is just being satirical. Nobody could actually be stupid enough to really intend to say the stuff he posts and believe it is real.

    As is often pointed out, with the Dow reaching record highs (even after accounting for inflation), Obama is the worst socialist ever! (Note to right-wing jerks: by no definition is Obama a Marxist, socialist, or a communist.)

    Democracy REQUIRES that the people and the representatives of the people vote, not jiggle and jive to STOP the people and their representatives from voting. Big News Flash: it appears democracy is not the Republicans preferred form of government.

    The right wing definitions of Marxist, socialist, and communist is Democrat. No other qualification seems to be needed.

    You do know that the USA is a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy

    Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution states: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican form of Government,…

    He/she/its post really are mostly absurd.

    The moderators, if they do indeed read and assess all flagged posts, must be kept rather busy with (Ima’s).

    There is an argument to be made that all incantations of he/she/it are simply a gocomics staff member, tasked with producing heat by providing friction.

    I dunno. Whether fact or fiction, much of the drivel is truly vile, and has no place in a civilized society.

    Recognizing that outside the dittohead brigade, it’s no big deal, is what Heller recognizes, that and that returning to the old rules, is hardly an autocratic revolution by the left. Note folks: the filibuster is still very much alive, and will be used, as it has over 400 times by the Republicans in 5 years, vs a maximum of EIGHT TIMES in any other administration, even after EIGHT years!


    The obstructionist wing has gone too far, and we need less tea, and a little Miralax to get them out.

    I think the overuse of the filibuster was the “nuclear” option.

    As the dollar becomes inflated, things cost more, that includes buying stocks. There are times when the DOW going up and reaching record highs is a good thing. In recent years, it’s an indication that the dollar in the international markets is worth less as foreign investors refuse to sell unless they can get what they paid for it.

    The filibuster system was designed to give the minority party a voice and allow them to prevent the worst of legislation. It was supposed to be used in times of desperation and would stop any other legislation from being passed until the issue was resolved. Filibuster changes in recent decades have made them far less painless and easier to both implement without political repercussions and to break. Last decade the Dems have used the filibuster far more and blocked many more appointments than the Repubs did under Obama. Nominees have passed much quicker under Obama then under Bush when the Dems were the minority. So, in conclusion, the Republicans played by the same rules – the rules the Democrats enacted – just less often. And in the future, minority parties will have even less recourse to “bad” legislation. This will, of course, mean when it’s the Republicans turn, the Democrats will no recourse but to accept it. Right?

    Do you know anything at all about Marxism?

    To quote a certain Rethuglican congresscritter: " You lie! "

    I’m a big enough man to admit I was wrong about the first sentence. I was inferring facts not in evidence based on something I read. That said, I still challenge you to look for hold-up in time it takes to confirm a nominee under this regime versus the last. Also, it still doesn’t change my main point that the Democrats change the rules, and then complain about it when Republicans use them. it’s horrifying that what was supposed to be a check-and-balance measure against the ruling party has been reduced to essentially nothing as the majority can just vote it away. Horrifying that it was abused and that it was done away with.
    .
    And 2nd, when the time comes that the Republicans are the majority in the Senate and vote to cloture all Democrat filibusters, how quickly will the Dems will cry foul?
