Apparently there is no such crime as "domestic terrorism" in US law, so this is as close as you can get

Of course people like TGW were happy with this result as long as they could touchdown dance on Hillary Clinton’s political grave.

If you think the Republicans adhere to the Constitution, I have a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in.

Both parties wipe their butts with the constitution. The constitution is an outdated, borderline useless piece of paper in modern day politics.

Typical democrat nonsense...gotta protect the healthcare industries' bottom line. No wonder there's going to be a red bloodbath in the midterms:

I wonder if it's worth nuking the filibuster for voting reform... all that does is keep the GOP from stealing close races, but if the Dems get their butts kicked in 2022 it's not going to matter. Well, still waiting for that other Roe v Wade shoe to drop.

I'm not sure how it's possible to keep on when Republicans like Graham insist that Trump remains the leader of the Republican party. It simply can't work, and Graham knows it, because he said as much just a few years ago about the psychopath.


The irony of certain people following behind make America great again as a slogan. Fascist and maybe even antichrist, well that’s putting a little strong but I don’t know. What happened January 6 last year was downright treasonous and those suckers deserved to be burned with flamethrowers as far as I’m concerned.However, because they were white They got carte blanche treatment all the way into the Capitol. For once I like a Google mistranslate with a T capitalized.

They are the enemy. But because they look white they can get away with “breaking” the Constitution and with
any other thing they feel like doing.

People like Lindsey Graham remind me of why I don’t like hardly any lawyers or politicians

Before anybody gets it twisted I think the Democrats are full of ****, too. The more I see Biden the more I like Hillary, and I really detested her.

I did not vote for Hillary or Donald Trump.

I did not vote for Biden, either; but I knew that Hawaii was going to vote his way and I did not matter either way.

I am also dumb (although, I am not a Republican)!

I did not realize Frederick had two S’s in last name.

Lol please feel free to tell me where the constitution specifically talks about workplace safety. The Supreme Court has been hijacked by radical right wing ideologues and is a complete joke. I feel sorry for America if most people are as lost as you.

The filibuster is a completely made up Senate rule. There is no filibuster in the constitution. I’d be surprised if over 1% of Americans could explain what the filibuster is and how it works.

The discussion about nuking the filibuster for voting rights is completely idiotic because it’s a self fulfilling prophecy. If Democrats do nothing on voting rights they’ll never be back in power again, even if they rightly win elections. That’s why it’s a stupid argument, doing nothing while you have the power to do something ensures you’ll never have the power to make any changes when Republicans roll out their voter suppression tactics. And you can bet your ass as soon as all three levels of government are controlled by Republicans they’ll nuke the filibuster just like they did for Supreme Court confirmations, just like they held Obama’s nomination open for months and confirmed the radical right wing judges while an actual election was going on. Voting rights isn’t about 2022, Democrats will lose anyway but it’s about whether or not they want to run in a fair election again.

I have no idea why or even the names of the two senators for the state of Hawaii. I think Ed Case is one of them.

I bet most people do not know there are 100 senators in Congress and the rest of them are congressmen/women who make up the House of Representatives.

Brian Schatz, Democrat
Mazie Hirono, Democrat

I knew there were two but I did not know they could both be the same party!

I am still apolitical but thank you for having this discussion and this thread
