Unless the Dems can pull a McConnell and force a delay until January. Long odds

The Republicans opened the door for this tactic.

Remember when Republicans said that eliminating the filibuster would be unfair?

Keep your eye on the case that's gunna put property above people Rick. The end game is to rip out the legal legitimacy of government to redress inequality. That will protect their hoard from government forever. Posted link to article in the 'realize what they're doing?' thread but it didn't gain much traction. It;s a dive into a legal/political/economic strategy decades long and revolutionary in design.

The implications are broad and will be devastating for the 90%.

(It's a very good article. I'm getting the book.)

I'm going to miss the United States of America. We had a good run, I suppose...

Yeah, them rich frat boys play a deep long game don't they? Time to shed false notions and go left.
Sometimes it is what it is.

Posted this gang before but I'll throw it out again. Good podcasts coming from the yutes that are worth a listen, if nothing else it's always good for a laugh. Interview of David Faris on dirty street fighting the dems could do is a good one:
