AOC is having none of it.

 

yep.  this is perfect timing for the aoc's of the world to say, "oh, really?  republicans are dangerous?  you're getting death threats?  welcome to the fucking club.  get on the bandwagon, there's plenty of room."

i doubt there were many congress members who genuinely feared for their life last wednesday, but that number is not zero.  aoc and others have a clear target on their back, and you cannot tell me what would've happened if she or omar or pressly came face to face with 5 armed rioters in a hallway with no capitol police in sight. 

this is on trump, fox news, and every other right-wing shitbag who opened their mouth and fomented the hatred and turned the whole fucking thing into a team sport death match the last 4 30 years.

but it's really really bad that the president isn't allowed on twitter and that there are metal detectors at the capitol.  people used to smoke on airplanes and not wear seatbelts. 

evolve, people.

I realize I'm prob. the oldest guy on this board, but "cosplaying" is just a shitty word.  I'm not sure why, but it makes me grouchy.

Maybe if I had done all the Dungeons and Dragons stuff that you guys did in the day, or played quiddich,  I might abide it.

Ranks down there with "moist" and "inquinal".

there is nothing wrong with moist.  moist is good.

Back in the 90s they called it Creative Anachronism

Point of order, it was the Society for Creative Anachronism.  I got to make chain mail and shoot a recurve bow all in the same day.

As usual, I wish the Dems were hitting harder. My God, how can no one have personally called out the treasonous lies spewed by Matt Gaetz.

as usual, politics has one guide - who has the votes.  if you have the votes, it doesn't matter what you say or what you do.

trump riled his base and repeatedly broke the law for 4 years and it didn't matter because he had the votes in the senate and thought he had the votes to get reelected (or would cheat his way to victory).

he didn't.  he fucked around.  he found out.

Completely agree on these young Dems.   They'll run rings around the Boeberts and Greens of the Rs.    But we have to worry about one of those bozos pulling a gun on the floor and pulling a Charles Whitman.

Fine.  While the media and everyone else is fixated on the impeachment trial, start executive ordering the shit out of everything.  EVERYTHING.
I expect there's a 10,000 page EO ready to go at 12:01 pm on the 20th.

Does Chip Roy have the balls? No, he does not.

I'm actually slightly impressed. His argument against is the least offensive I have heard. It's still wrong. Because Trump did it. But Roy made an argument without seemingly like a complete sycophant.

and he also, though obliquely, called out some of the irresponsible rhetoric coming from his side of the aisle.

he's my rep, sadly, but i was still impressed.

Since he said Trump committed impeachable offenses, I really wish the next person up would've asked him to either submit his own articles of impeachment by EOD or vote to impeach on the grounds presented

Republicans are all we should lock everyone up and throw away the key (unless of course it's us and then we need to let things cool and talk about this).

Did Brian Mast just glitch out?

I think he thinks he was being really profound and effective there? I'm surprised he didn't grab the mic and drop it.

What did the handicapped R do?  I came in on the final where he basically said no one will answer him.

Also, why is D leadership only giving 30 seconds?  Some of these D’s have good shit to say but can’t get it out because the 30 seconds is already up.  Gym giving his “guns” 1 min and 2 min.
