Absolutely no Republicans are voting to begin debate

42 so far are "no." However this is not the John Lewis voting rights act, right? Supposedly that has far more support. Hopefully after both bills fail, manchin and sinema will be onboard with he getting rid of the fillibuster for civil rights legislation ?

Watching this vote is infuriating, heartbreaking but expected.

Is this "Trump" person president or something?

Just judging by how much people are talking about him around these parts, I'm starting to not be sure. As far as I know, Joe Biden is the President of the United States Of America.

...let's keep it that way

Remember that time some narcissistic idiot was president, ran for re election and lost?

Yeah, me neither. And I would appreciate if nobody remind me. Thanks!


Each and every one of those scum who were too afraid to vote for that commission -apparently to do a personal favor for McConnell, is nothing short of a traitor. Fuck each and every one of them.

Fed will launch a broad discussion of a digital dollar this sunmer


Last summer, a team at the Boston Fed started to work with researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to find out what it would take to build a U.S.-backed digital currency.

A Fed-backed digital dollar wouldn’t be a cryptocurrency based on decentralized blockchain, the ledger-based technology that underpins traditional digital currencies like bitcoin BTCUSD . It would merely be a digitized form of the fiat dollars that the Fed issues, and with which Americans are the most familiar, essentially antithetical to assets like bitcoin, in the eyes of cryptocurrency purists.

Great news!!

Dogecoin continues it's scarcely believable surge


Dogecoin continues its scarcely believable surge.

Dogecoin, the cryptocurrency that started as a joke, is on a tear. A surge in the past day pushed it to another record, sending it some 14,000 percent higher than it started the year.

One theory is that the upcoming appearance of Elon Musk, the Tesla chief executive and noted Dogecoin superfan, as the host of “Saturday Night Live” on May 8 could get more people interested in trading the crypto token. It’s as good a reason as any for those who try to rationalize its movements.

The latest bout of Dogecoin mania has somewhat overshadowed what’s going on in Ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency, which also set records this week and made its 27-year-old co-creator, Vitalik Buterin, a billionaire (in dollars). The price of Ether, the crypto token built on the Ethereum blockchain, is up more than 350 percent for the year to date, outpacing Bitcoin’s relatively pedestrian 90 percent gain — which, for context, outpaces every stock in the S&P 500 over that period.

Much wow

WaPo:With Most Adults Now Vaccinated, Israelis Are Busting Lose


Israel has delivered just under 10 million doses of the two-shot Pfizer vaccine regimen, reaching 4.98 million people, or about 55 percent of its total population. An additional 400,000 Israelis have received one shot. If those who have been infected and then recovered are added in, more than 60 percent of Israeli residents now have some level of protective antibodies. The virus is running short of vulnerable bodies to infect.

It marks the third mass shooting in the United States in two weeks, coming after incidents at three Atlanta spas that killed eight people, including six Asian women, and at a Boulder, Colo. supermarket that killed 10.
