  1. I agree it was unwise to include it in the bill unless you're willing to fight tooth and nails for it (like, bribe Manchin). My impression has always been that Biden wasn't really terribly interested in the wage hike, and I thought maybe he included it as a bargaining chip with Republicans (still not realizing that they'll obstruct everything anyway, hoping for a bipartisan vote).
  2. As for the fears of ricochet politics resulting from abolishing the filibuster, Ezra Klein discusses this here:
  3. @Fez I only "watch" Fox when they come up in other people's YT shows, so at least I don't directly support them. I try to avoid it anyway because watching that stuff just as unproductive for me as doomscrolling. A mix of anger and wanting the human race to be annihilated... The mention of Asians reminded me of these claims that whites are mre intelligent than AA, and see, that's totally not rascist, because Asians are even more intelligent than whites. See, just science! But I didn't know they are trying to pander to Asian Americans now.
  4. Because they don't have any meaningful politics to offer... not for a majority of voters. They're really obsessed with trans people now, aren't they? I saw a snippet of Tucker Carlsen with his guest Newt Gingrich... Completely unhinged. Trans people will oblterate "judeo-christian and btw. Asian" cultures, or something. Thanks to Biden's radical agenda. (Of course, including Asans is a dead giveaway for a dog whistle to racists.) Also, Abbott informed us that Texas will be infected with Covid by Biden's illegal immigrant. (Logically speaking, that would suggest you should definitely reinforce the mask mandate, but logic isn't neccessary.)
  5. I didn't post it because 'conspiracy'. More because it's so absurd that rich people (and of the Senate, everyone seems to be filthy rich, with exceptions like Sinema) make decisions about other people's minimum wage, much less decide not to raise it. Sorry for weird sentence, I'm tired. Much, much less people who have firms with employees at minimum wage, like Manchin.
  6. R.I.P. (but funny) *** https://www.democracydocket.com/2021/03/120-gop-house-members-share-incendiary-social-media-content-leading-up-to-capitol-attack/ WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA-19) published a review of her colleague’s social media histories, creating a permanent record of any tweets or posts that may have encouraged or aided in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. All 120 Members of Congress across 33 states featured in the report voted to overturn the 2020 election results. The review includes social media posts from Election Day to the end of January “related to the violence on January 6, 2021 and claims regarding the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election,” as well as other relevant contributions to the culture of misinformation and violent rhetoric that led to the siege on the Capitol.
  7. Idk, maybe I need to apologize to Manchin (& Sinema), thinking they/ he were power-dunk or just didn't want Dems to keep the house and the senate by opposing such popular thing... Maybe it IS as simple as that: They are not the only ones. A propos of nothing...
  8. Male writers are objective, female writers insert wishful thinking to promote stuff. It is known.
  9. I was gonna ask, is The Real President, I mean King, reinstalled yet? In my case, it's just gallows humor. Speaking of gallows... I heard Pence wrote an op-ed and is still all-in on The Big Lie. It's getting harder and harder for me to be glad he was saved on Jan 6. ETA: As the former guy hates his kids, he could adopt Cawthorne.
  10. Inspector General’s Report Cites Elaine Chao for Misuse of Office The Transportation Department’s inspector general asked the Justice Department in December to consider a criminal investigation into what it said was Elaine Chao’s misuse of her office as transportation secretary in the Trump administration to help promote her family’s shipping business, which is run by her sister and has extensive business ties with China. In a report made public on Wednesday, the inspector general said the Justice Department’s criminal and public integrity divisions both declined to take up the matter in the closing weeks of the Trump administration, even after the inspector general found repeated examples of Ms. Chao using her staff and her office to help benefit her family and their business operations and revealed that staff members at the agency had raised ethics concerns. “A formal investigation into potential misuses of position was warranted,” Mitch Behm, the department’s deputy inspector general, said on Tuesday in a letter to House lawmakers https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/03/us/politics/elaine-chao-inspector-general-report.html Trump Served With Civil Rights Suit After Capitol Riot https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-served-with-rep-bennie-thompsons-civil-rights-lawsuit-after-capitol-riot
  11. I guess it depends on how many other women speak out... He says he's not going to resign. I notice he didn't talk about the nursing home deaths, or the general bullying...
  12. Even Pod Save The World are not really happy with Biden's Saudi Arabia policy... Also some thoughts on Iran, Syria etc.
  13. Tanden has asked the WH to withdraw her nomination. [BREAKING] White House Will Withdraw Tanden OMB Nomination https://hillreporter.com/breaking-white-house-will-withdraw-tanden-omb-nomination-94318
  14. Kira was always able to look past his collaboration, or hiis charming personality, and form a very good friendship with him, I doubt she would have another set of moral standards for a romantic partner. Now, the question of having a different 'type', e.g. religious, is a valid point. Although many people don't always fall for someone of their 'type'. As for FutureOdo's actions in CoT - I never held that against present Odo. Sure, he had the potential for committing these acts, or for not doing so. It wasn't predetermined. I guess I just assumed Kira felt the same; otherwise, it would be hard for her to even be his friend. Then again, I don't view Odo as an arsehole. The almost-killing-Kira-and-losing-the-war-because-shagging-Changeling thing was quite a different matter, and the writers clearly didn't see how they would ever realistically get over this, which is why they simply stuck them in a closet at a party, and the next morning they had reconciled. That was infuriatingly dumb writing, particularly for DS9. Both important points: - the indecision of the writers showed in the lead-up to His Way. Do it or don't do it, but commit to it and do the work! - And yes, even in this episode, we never really get her perspective. It's all about The Nice Guy getting the girl. His way, indeed. One of the many reasons I dislike the ep so much. It does such a disservice to both their characters. Indeed.
  15. Back to the Senate hearing... Is it just me or were certain senators desperate to find out which phone and meta data the fbi has, and how to shut that part of the investigation down?
