American Politics VIII: Dancin' with Manchin

Postby Kowani » Wed Nov 03, 2021 3:42 pm

Previous Thread

Democrats lost Virginia but held New Jersey, the Manchin Sinematic Universe continues to play reruns of Build Back Better v. Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework, and the GOP keeps filibustering anything important that manages to make its way to the Senate floor. Meanwhile, on the Court's side, Abortion rights are heading for two showdowns (Texas and Mississippi, respectively), there's a major gun case coming up, and then finally the Court will decide whether we get a livable Earth at all. In addition to all of that, December will bring us back into confrontation over the debt ceiling, a government shutdown, and highway funds, all of which expire at the same time.

The questions, as always, hang over our heads: Will the filibuster be reformed? Will we get that infusion of social spending after all? Will Trump declare his candidacy? Will the ghost of Hugo Chavez stop stealing elections through Italian Satellites? And most crucially, how will all of this affect The Midterms?

It's sad that an American politics thread has to reference multiple court cases.

The first post hardly counts. You wouldn't get the OP posting the OP and tacking on "first!" at the end.

You were the third.

New Kereptica: Since power is changed energy over time, an increase in power would mean, in this case, an increase in energy. As energy is equivalent to mass and the density of the government is static, the volume of the government must increase.

The media is a propaganda tool fueling the two parties hyperpartisanship and killing the country, it's time to end the "freedom of the press"
Violence against the government is and should be accepted by the people, especially when said government wants to and is actively stripping away your constitutional rights.
