Exactly, you beat me to it. Barrett might actually be the most unqualified SC justice ever.
Lol. If the leadership of the Democratic Party was truly interested in protecting unions, the working class, local and state governments, and the Postal Service, they would have chosen a different Speaker a long time ago.
The only thing Nancy is interested in protecting are the colors in her hair: dark brown near the roots, with chestnut brown streaks. By the way, how often does she have to visit the beauty salon to maintain the dark brown near the roots? How many days does it take for the grey to show? And how much do those frequent visits to the beauty salon cost? Don’t you think the U.S. people would be better served by a Speaker of the House who focuses on bringing affordable, publicly-subsidized health-care and higher education to all American citizens?
You may be entirely right, but at some point it will become obvious that certain truths win out. If no one (or almost no one) pays into SS, then there will be no beneficiaries. So then what happens to the economy with far fewer consumers? So what happens if we have 70 to 80+ year old people living on the streets or perhaps moving in with their adult children who are working to take care of the next generation? Why not start with a system that is working and make it better?
Biden’s agenda is the same as Obama, represent all the people, in other words do NOT fight the Republican Neo-facsist agenda but try to work with them. 2020 same sh** as 2008. No change, no chance. So glad I never had children.
We’ll never get organized crime, (incumbents), to enact campaign finance reform. We would have to first force them permanently and very aggressively from office with the most extreme prejudice imaginable - but that wont happen because Americans are stupid, and cowardly, and ignorant and basically the most worthless life forms in memory, and most of all are unwilling to accept the idea that reforms are needed rather than “impractical” as their adored and beloved Obama’s and Biden’s and Clintons, and Pelosi’s and Schumer’s have easily convinced them.
Somewhere in a discussion on this woman, a poster had pointed out that all the Dems need to do is not
show up for the vote, as they must have a quorem which includes at least two Democrats (I suppose
that would be Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. And that is if the DNC WANTS to stop BARRETT getting hoisted to a position to vie with Thomas for the title “worst member of the Supreme Court in all of American history” until one of them passes or resigns.
Anyway, if quorem thing is accurate and this is something to which the DNC crowd could easily put a stop
and they refuse to employ it, perhaps that will convince those clinging to ‘vote blue no matter who’ that
they are being royally “had”.
Your second paragraph is, in its entirely a most apt description of Biden. The sadness of this is all
the drum-beating for the election for a candidate with all of Trump’s faults and a lot more to boot.
In this particular election, the need is not for a third party" presence in our governance to combat the corporate control of our two ‘major’ political parties". We need the ELECTION of the Green Party
candidates for President and Vice-President.
FACT: Responsibility for our current quandary lies 100% with the DNC controllers AND THOSE WHO DRINK THEIR KOOLAID ELECTION AFER ELECTION. They lost 2016 election in a manner which was
entirely predictable from events directed at Sanders and his supporters in the summerof 2016. Hillary
did virtually nothing to campaign, was exhibiting obvious health issues and said really stupid things
(think ‘deplorables’). All of the foregoing spent the next 4 years trying - unsuccessfully- to devise ‘explanations’ for HC’s loss that attempted to foist ‘blame’ for the loss on everything but (and perhaps
including) the phase of the moon on election night.
This year, having learning absolutely nothing - and that includes both the DNC controllers, would-be kings and queens, and all the ‘vote blue no matter who’ followers who laid aside independent thought - and having apparently bought into their own excuses for their failure, they grew yet more blatant in exhibiting
contempt for voters, other candidates and the American people, by rigging a second primary, removing
all contenders and picking the total worse candidate they could have picked.
And it just gets better - in that they now expect that no one should question their absurd actions. Not after he couldn’t remember what city he was in -or what he wanted to say - not after he was actually heckled in his visit to Pgh,top ‘union city’ of the known world. And not after he and Harris started fires by foolishly guaranteeing that fracking would not be banned in Pa.- not after the legitimate protests were taken over by more violent and less altruistic protesters
in Flyod, et in utterly failing to consider that a lot of folks, including the legitimate protesters were being
tarred with the same brush. Played right into what Trump was doing with his ‘law and order’ stuff and all
the non-involved folks of all hues and political persuasions who were getting a bit rattled by the violent turn
things were taking. .Cherry on the top - let’s have Obama, the drone assassination king who fooled many of us into two election votes and turned out to be a fraud - to say nothing of arranging for Biden to be
installed and forcing Sanders out.
Where was it - this week - major protest city apparently, Minnesota I think, B and H do their first ‘duo’
appearance. Not a single soul attends save one confused reporter on the sidewalk to ‘do interviews’
who finally leaves after saying everyone must be inside a building across the way…
There comes a time, RDD, when its just commonsense and no more required. Neither Trump nor
Biden are remotely Presidential material. They never have been and they never will be. Biden will be no better for having prevailed over Trump should he do so. And Trump will be no better for having prevailed over Biden which at this point seems - from a ‘ground view’ - the most likely result.
Hawkins and Walker deserve their chance AND ARE FAR, FAR, FAR LESS LIKELY TO DESERT THEIR LONG-STANDING POLICIES, TO SUCK UP MONEY FROM EVERY LOBBYIST WHO OFFERS IT AS A QUID PRO QUO FOR FAvORS, AND ABANDON THE INTERESTS, NEEDS OF BOTH THE COUNTRY AND ITS CITIZENS.THAN EITHER TRUMP OR BIDEN ARE.
As one great author once famously observed: “WHEN PEOPLE TELL YOU WHO THEY ARE, BELIEVE
THEM THE FIRST TIME”
True, but the bigger problem, it seems to me, rickshaw51 is too many people do not realiize that fact. The Democratic Party are and have been very good at being the fake opposition Party,
They will gladly pass a bill for publicly financed elections right after they pass one on term limits for Senators and Congressman. Just don’t hold your breath.
Well, come Halloween this sorry excuse for a jurist won’t have to put on a mask. And silly me thinking it couldn’t get much worse than the 5 scotus stooges we have now. This masquerade pretending to be justice, this circus complete with perverted side shows, demands, demands, an all out retaliatory response by the party of donkeys! Otherwise the most dangerous organization in the world will take it as a green light to further their malevolent justice.
“Mankind censure injustice fearing that they may be the victims of it, and not because they shrink from committing it.”
If they want to stop the psychopath Barrett all they have to do is impeach Barr. That’ll throw the confirmation charade into chaos. Again, it’s Pelosi, the number one trump enabler on the planet. She’d rather get into a pissing contest with Wolf Blitzer than act to thwart the republican agenda. But again, anything to mask her real intentions.
Coney Barrett is disgusting- answers nothing.,
And obviously is being coached by the right -wing fascists.Sad.
OF COURSE! Amy Barrett’s con…firmation hearings are just another dog and pony show in Washington Deceit.
And notice that in all these right-wing fascists., quite a few-
Like Scalia., this “woman” and Paul Ryan are
No wonder they love authoritarianism…and fit right in with Federalist Society & KochWorld.
Be very afraid- I am-
& keep fighting back-
Biden is a strong supporter of Social Security and Medicare. Don’t believe those who lie about that whether Republican trolls or wacky ultra-leftists
You’ve never seen the Trump ad in which Biden brags about trying to kill them off 4 times?
The conformation process is a complete sham when republican senators are in the majority.
We should all know this after watching boofing Bret.
Losing the battle? Hell, she isn’t even trying. Don’t listen to the establishment spin. Watch what she does: nothing.
Obomber represented only the oligarchs; you know that as well as I.
Perhaps your version of the U.S. Constitution is different than mine as the one which I have specifically says about Amendment 1 that:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peacefully to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
So if you were to re-read that amendment very carefully you would discover that that amendment does mention, despite your belief, five freedoms instead of only four with the fifth being, again, the right of the people “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” And since Barrett, who is supposed to a professor of constitutional law, was unable to list the five things which the first amendment represents, that then means that she is unqualified to sit as a member of the Supreme Court since it appears that she does not understand the meaning of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution which is what she is, allegedly, an expert in and which is what she is supposed to express to her students. Perhaps a student at Notre Dame may wish to think twice before taking a class of constitutional law which is being taught by Ms. Barrett.
Ssssh, that’s the anointed one Dims are preparing to demand should pick six new Supreme court judges to pack the court with fascist corporatists “Justices”. The Corpocracy takeover of America will be accomplished by fascist Dimocrapic Leadership Committee hands, and with the support of a rabid blue-no-matter-who mob brainwashed by corporate funds and media propagandists manipulating the masses to blindly vote for LoTE fascist puppets.
