    the filibuster is a senate-chosen rule by majority vote.
    -
    filibusters sometimes save citizens from very bad bills.
    -
    “The People” elect congress to do the People’s Will, but
    too many laws have passed both the House and Senate that the Public Obviously Loudly Shouted in every way possible that WE DO NOT WANT IT….case in point, most recent, the Obamacare travesty that is ruining American health care.

    I can’t think of a bad bill or appointment that’s been blocked by the filibuster. Even Robert Bork, a perfectly terrible choice for the supreme court for all kinds of reasons, wasn’t filibustered. He was voted out by a majority of senators, the way the constitution intended bad bills and appointments to be stopped. Nowadays, one solitary senator could have blocked him, because that’s the new normal.

    Congress has blocked the appointment of a head of the ATF for six years now. F as in firearms, blocked as in NRA. There are to few ATF agents, 17 years between inspections of gun shops is the norm.

    I would rather they used more inspectors for the FDA and inspected food processing plants and drug manufacturers. Thousands get sick and it never makes a headline until it is practically epidemic or racks up a steep mortality count.

    Yes, libs usually are the first to break and change rules when those rules get in the way of their various passions. Or they wait – wait til they get a temporary majority and the Presidency and then they slam whatever BS they have on hand down America’s throat. Why not put your BS to a vote, Libs? Or do you know you can’t win otherwise?

    I think we need to inspect lib-posters from the west coast. Let’s make sure they pass they “not-currently-inhaling” test.

    The present “filibuster” is a ghost of its former self. You can just put a stay on a bill. Don’t have to lift a finger or do anything else. There is no way to unstop it. That has to go. Better to return it to the long winded version or eliminated it.

    It is bad when it is so easy anyone can do it without working for it. Best to end it don’t you agree?

    Did they let you out of your box again?

    A REAL filibuster’d be all right, the old tried and true kind, where the bustering person actually had to stand up and talk, holding the floor so business of any sort couldn’t be transacted. They just raise hands now. Whoops. The vote’s plus one: no bloody business done today…

    The “people” shouted loudly about the Civil Rights bills, yet LBJ and Congress finally stood up and did the right thing, and some are still trying to take us back to Jim Crow/poll tax/ separate but equal.
