The Filibuster

It hurts me to seen grown elected officials come crying home to their constituents, saying "Mitch/The Republicans/The Other Side/The Bad Guys won't let me do what you elected me to do!" And when those constituents ask "Why", the answer is, "Because I let them."

Senator Elizabeth Warren recently published a video, that explains the subject succinctly.

The Filibuster continues to fuel my imagination. It challenges me to find mental images that may not make sense of it, but at least make it understandable. I intend to use this space to unload some of those thoughts, on the assumption that once written down, they will cease to bother me.

The Filibuster, a festering wound that just won’t heal.

The Democrats, who have once again let themselves get screwed over by a recalcitrant minority, remind me of those men who go to establishments with red lights in order to let women dressed in black whip them.

By supporting the Biden Agenda and the Filibuster, Democrats look like they want to set their sails for a great adventure without weighing anchor.

Now playing in the United States Senate!
Samuel Beckett's world-famous play, 'Waiting for Bi-Partisan Election Reform'!
Starring Joe Manchin and Mitch McConnell as Vladimir and Estragon!
With the Senate Democratic Caucus hiding in the wings!

Defending the Filibuster is like giving your opponent permission to hit you.
