Joe got me on full tilt
Val Demings is running against Lil Marco
They do seem to be particularly bad at learning lessons.
It's been stated before, but this isn't just Cinnamon and Manchin being the weirdos, it seems like the party as a whole has no appetite to actually do anything meaningful.
If nothing gets done, we can run on that against the Rs in '22
- Best regards,
It's worth repeating ad nauseum but looking at the Democratic Party as just the GOP with a little more palatable views on certain things makes everything they're doing (or not doing) look clearer.
I mean for all the shit Reagan deservedly gets for being a monster, he also had a D majority Senate for the entirety of his time in office, and D control over all Congress for part of his 2nd term.
why every network is mimicking Fox News on Immigration and the Border
but its also generally futile to compare election year ratings to a subsequent non-election year
especially when Cable news had a captive, lockdown audience in 2020.
ok I must have missed something, because if people are suggesting that we don’t teach Dred Scott in law school for whatever reason, then that person is undeniably wrong.
I think he’s talking about how the discussion about Dred Scott is framed. I think he’s arguing that it needs to be taught as an indictment of the concept of originalism.
I just skimmed that article and one of the law professors was in fact talking about not teaching it or assigning only a couple paragraphs because it’s too hurtful to discuss. He also skipped Plessy.
he’s doing his students a great disservice regardless of opining on originalism.
Yeah that seems messed up.
Edit - it being hurtful is exactly why it needs to be discussed.
Yeah but have we considered the hurt feelings of all our originalist law professors
thats not who the professor is talking about
I can’t speak to those schools, but Dred Scott and Plessy were well covered at UF. I later wrote my 3L paper on Lochner v. New York and the premise of which — though not quite as refined in my own mind at the time — was essentially just how shitty strict interpretation principles can be when you wind up with absurd results.
I let my hate for the American Conservative fuel my need to vote in every single election. I know that they are out there... voting every single time... with their nationalist white supremacy and their utter hatred for Progressives, BIPOC and LGBTQ people on their mind.
Elections are a zero sum game and I don't want those people to win. Fuck those people.
I’m going back to my Green Party roots in 2024. Sorry not sorry.
go play pew pew and STFU.
Insert meme of man sweating to decide which button to press: “teach that America was never racist so we can own the libs” or else “teach that America was super racist so we can own the libs.”
He shouldn’t have so it’s not
Dude was accused by like a dozen women but do you
Okay I will
Mansion Man is Trumpy but in the like good branding to hurt your opponent way
this dude is going to get smoked just as bad as amy mcgrath
lol this guy is gonna get stomped by gun guy
hi i am lucas dunce and it is my belief that these guns should only be used to kill brown people in the middle east. that's why i am running for senate
would a pub have resigned in a similar situation? If the answer is no, then franken shouldn’t have either.
that’s not to say I don’t think he should have (bc he should have), but Dems are playing a diff game than pubs and it shows. Acting like the “bigger man” party is stupid and you’re stupid for supporting it.
I’m about over any politician using a gun as a prop whether they are whining about not getting to say the n word enough or not.
He is no Jason Kander
It wasn't even a vulnerable seat. The Dem has won the seat in the special election and the full term in 20. I'm cool with no serial sexual assaulters in governmental leadership
did it ever come out that he actually assaulted anyone? i only remember that picture he took where he was pretending to grab some boobs which wasnt great but not resign level bad
feel like people need to remind themselves of the full scope of the franken allegations
He was accused by 9 women. Accusations ranging from forcibly open mouthed kissing to grabbing a couple of women's ass to holding another's breast etc. He apologized in a statement that didn't really include a denial.
Gun guy won’t even make it out of the primary, but yes.
I mean I get your point of view and I agree he should have resigned.
I just think it’s silly Dems play by a different set of rules than pubs and try and act holier than thou with these things. If a pub was in that same situation they’d have prob just road it out and waited for the media to shift to a new scandal
Joe in the UK
If Iran conquers Florida I say we count our blessings that the Democrats hold the senate 50-48 and pass some shit.
My God, the lack of civility. No wonder nothing is getting done.
Iranian leadership would be better than Desantis so I’m all for it. I for one welcome our new Iranian overlords
