Important, I should know better, update!
Apparently a Senator speaking continuously to stop the Senate from passing a bill is not a filibuster.
Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul commandeered (emphasis me V) the Senate floor…
Although Paul called his action a filibuster, it technically fell short of Senate rules (fact check: Mostly true but false because leftists don’t want it to be true)…
Thune said: “It’s going to be talking for an extended period of time. Around here I suppose that’s a filibuster.”
Obviously Thune is some sort of dictionary-nazi.
Hmmm, is that a Minitruism or is it antidictionaryestablishmentarianism?
I’m going with antidictionaryestablishmentarianism cuz you know McConnell, McCain, Graham and the rest of the GOP establishment assholes are agin it.
I’m fer his filibuster as much as I can be.
Gumming up the works is awesome and tilting at windmills is important. Sooner or later you get to kill those bird-killing windmills!
The 4th amendment has a meaning as rdbrewer explains so well
I get it; some of these senators know better than the Founding Fathers and are happy with warrantless bulk data collection, but the Constitution does not allow that. We have the right to be secure in our papers and effects,
Yeah, the current crew of life-long-politicians know better than the greatest men to ever have lived and they’ve decided we have no rights they don’t feel we need.
In other words,
This is the “Explaining the categories” part.
It’s in GOP Win! because the GOP is going to win and restrict my freedoms.
It’s in GOP Fail because Rand Paul is being unhelpful to his establishment betters in the GOP.
