filibuster tussle

filibuster tussle
Republicans, like a group of midget babies, puff at their cigars while wailing at the top of their lungs about a few social revolutionist judges. Why can't these men find other more mainstream judges to fill these positions? Why can't they simply insert other less offensive judges? The reason is simple. Fascists will damn well get their way or cheat to get it.

I'm infuriated that these crazed neocons plan to shove these judges down our throats, without compromise, without bipartisan debate, without regard for the wishes of so many Americans. If they are willing to break rules today regarding filibusters then they will break the rules again and again.

Cons tried with great gusto to change the rules for the radical tyrant Delay. Now it appears he will walk away unscathed. What rules will these men twist to their design next?

If Democrats begin to fill Senate ledgers with bills regarding a balanced budget, environmental protectionism, universal healthcare, or any of the other concerns we, as conservative Democrats have, will foaming radical cons then change the rules to limit or even deny the rights of the minority party to place bills on the docket?

After all, padding the docket was a familiar Republican ploy in years past. In fact, they often placed so many corporate welfare and military bloat bills on the list that no work or appointments could be made. I fear the rules of senate scheduling could be targeted by the fascistic cons next.Where does this attitude of changing the rules to fit the purpose end? God only knows.

Let's hope we don't find ourselves in some dreadful position where the bootheels of radical right wretchedness have, through legal legislation, muffled any possibility of dissent.
