Principle, Schminciple

Here’s the Nevada Pederast, Harry “Candy Van” Screed (we’ve heard that from somebody that we absolutely won’t tell you who is, except to tell you that it’s up to Harry to prove him or her wrong) explaining to us how doing away with the filibuster in judicial nominations is just about the single most low, horrible, fascist thing utterly contrary to what this nation is all about that anybody could possibly do:

Of course, that was all of 8 years ago when some Eeevul Rethuglican had mentioned doing so as a way to get past the Socialist Democrat minority (led by Harry Pederast Candy Van Screed) blocking all of George W Bush’s nominees.

Now, on the other hand, things have changed completely, since we’re now talking about a way to get past the Republican minority blocking some of Ear Leader’s nominees, and they’re all racists anyway, so bring out the airbrushes and let’s rewrite history again:

The Senate went nuclear on Thursday, making a dramatic change to the Senate rules for confirming judicial and executive nominees and significantly curbing the power of the minority party.

Under the new rules, only a simple majority would be needed to clear a procedural hurdle in the approval process for executive nominees and judicial nominees. Currently, 60 votes are required to clear that hurdle, which gives the minority party the power to filibuster and block nominees of whom they disapprove…

In the past several weeks, Republicans have filibustered three nominees to the District of Columbia Circuit Court, prompting Reid to call for an end to the “gridlock” and move forward with the rules change…

“It’s time to change,” Reid said. “It’s time to change the Senate before this institution becomes obsolete.”

We can’t really improve on Treacher’s line here:

Whenever a Democrat stands on principle, it’s only to hold it down and keep it from running off anywhere until he can kill it.

Remember, children: The only good socialist is a dead socialist, and every time one of them dies, it makes the Baby Jesus smile.

Thatisall.

    Remember the Interstate Commerce Commission? Of course not.
    When the tables are turned with the communists out of all branches, it had better be SAYONARA EPA,HEW,DE, ETC ETC with 51 votes. If not, there will be a 2nd civil war in this country. Probably bloodless as we have seen how fast our cowardly masters in DC run when some one fires off a cats-paw firecracker. What they don’t know is they won’t get far! Nevada has lots of desert, easy to dig, and there is plenty of unemployed labor out there..

    Hairless Dickweed needs to retire (after he gets out of prison) and just run a Nevada whorehouse, something commensurate with his character and abilities. FOAD Harry!

    Bruce,Bob,Mark,
    It doesn’t have to be postal.
    It doesn’t have to be prison,
    It just has to be magic…………as in “DISAPPEAR”……..(permanently).
    one-by-one! A good start would be 10.

    Completely unrelated to the conversation at hand, with the possible exception of being about ‘principles’….

    http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1088442_cop-resigns-after-green-light-drag-race-video-goes-viral

    So, out of all the abuses the cop class as a whole perpetrates on the public at large, this, -THIS- is the one they’re willing to throw one of their own under the bus for.

    You can be a liar, a thief, a rapist, a murderer… you can have the stains of every other sin known to man on your soul, and they will take you under the ‘blue shield’ and protect you. But drag racing on the clock? that’s going too far…

    I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry.

    No that’s beyond him. Several years ago the federal gubbimint seized the Mustang Ranch, a Nevada whorehouse, I don’t remember why. Federal law requires the government to run seized businesses at a profit. after two years they had to file for bankruptcy. The idiots who make up government can’t make a profit selling pussy and liquor.

    Mustang Ranch?

    Reid’s wife ran it.
    Durban’s daughter turned tricks there.
    Schumer’s son cleaned the toilets.

    You mean like when the GOP had Bush in the White House, control of the Senate, House, and Supreme Court? They were nothing but statists who grew the government, too.

    I was pissed off when the REPUBLICANS didn’t follow through with it in 2005. It is an arcane rule that was put in place to allow Southern Senators to filibuster any legislation that did away with slavery.

    Personally, I would have like to see them do away with it altogether. It would really make people pay attention to how they vote and who they vote for.

    Am I worried that one day Republicans will regain the Senate and go balls to the wall without a worry of a filibuster? Naw. It is a blade that cuts both ways. The majority party likes it when some of their legislation gets filibustered — it allows certain Senators to hide or take cover behind that filibuster so their constituents can’t see how they would have voted. Now, they will be right there in the open and people will be able to see them for what they are.

    Actually it’s been around since ancient roman times….the first recorded use of it in the US Senate was in in the 1830′s, not sure what that filibuster was about but there was one in 1841 dealing with banking.

    THIS is the part you forgot to include, and this is what may save us. Should we actually have another vote.
