It could be that really they don't care about anything at all except that Obama isn't white but how you would go about determining that is beyond me here.
The problem with Brandeis lo those many years ago was that Brandeis was a Jew. We are now approaching a doubling of Brandeis' 125 day stonewall. This is beyond partisan.

Lol, stupidity and linguistic hysterics reign.

Racist Rick Tyler got 0% votes.

No game, no play, and most certainly, no role.

The voters have spoken.

I doubt you have any comedians quite up for the next four years. I hope a few rise to the challenge - they'll never have a better opportunity, other than the problem of Trump suing somebody every time he feels a li'l insulted.

Nope, this is a check and balance designed into the system. The Senate confirms appointments, they are elected for six year terms, meaning they straddle the Presidential term of four years.

Its meant to work exactly as it is.

SC nominations need to come from the executive with confirmation from the senate.

Intentionally limiting.

I did not pay attention to the state races Mondo just saw that this idjit was running. And that someone can be that brazen, even if he did not win in rural TN says a lot about this crappy place I am currently living in.

The fact that nearby KY some religious zealot thinks it is a good thing to kill the cat of my writer friend and leave it for her 6 year old daughter to see, because that zealot thinks my writer friend is consorting with the devil by writing paranormal books and ghost stories is frightening and sad too.

This is her Amazon Author page BTW. I have a 4 book omnibus version of the first 4 in Taryn's Camera, her partial biography of From Welfare to Bestseller, and of course LOVE her Kentucky Witches cozy mystery series she recently started.

Part of the problem is segments of the population are on a strict 4yr rotation. Two years from now...10% or less of those in the streets protesting Trump will vote in the midterms

Each state has a fair chance. Each state gets two senators, regardless population. You want a voice for six years, campaign for a senator.

The whole system is designed to protect the minority view.

That is the grace of the system, if Trump sucks ass for two years, the people can change up to one third of the Senate, plus the entire House.

Correct, Trump is a wooden cog thrown into the elite political machinery.
you said he was an actor paid by the establishment to ensure a Hillary shoe-in. Did i miss the post where you presented your new theory?
Looks like Jerome got his scum board and game board confused.

Bullshit. It's politicizing a justice appointment.

Quote:
Before 1981 the approval process of Justices was usually rapid. From the Truman through Nixon administrations, Justices were typically approved within one month. From the Reagan administration to the present, however, the process has taken much longer. According to the Congressional Research Service, the average number of days from nomination to final Senate vote since 1975 is 67 days (2.2 months), while the median is 71 days (or 2.3 months).[6][7] Some believe this is because Congress sees Justices as playing a more political role than in the past.[8]
I don't see anything about any fucking six years. Where did you make up six years to vote on it from? What does the term length of a senator have to with anything. Nothing, that's what.

I know you are not fond of cats, but this was their beloved pet and no 6 year old should have to walk out onto her front porch and see her family pet having been murdered

All in an attempt along with others that have been made against this wonderful woman and awesome writer because some religious zealot types think her books are in league with Satan.


I posted this just a bit ago on my FB timeline
