10. I think you're right. Filibuster is going away SOON, either by our hand or the Repugs'
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 02:20 PM by kenny blankenship
and I know which one I'd rather have in charge in a filibuster-free Senate FIRST.

I remember Clinton's first term - everything filibustered by Dole's kids. Since then soaring use of the filibuster. America's problems keep PILING UP because nothing can get through the Senate that corporate oligarchy doesn't approve of.
Something is going to give soon. That's the fault line. And when it gives way, change of some kind is going to come down HARD.

(But you know Democrats- self castrating Melvins almost every one. If Repugs can't cock block our agenda, we'll block it for them...)
