    It’s good to be exposed to a variety of opinions. Reasonable people will post good rebuttals, funny people will make good comedy and a broken clock is still correct twice a day.

    Besides without the Question’s most unreasonable fan I would’ve never thought that a flatearther who hates social justice could still be a Star Trek fan.

    624 days since Concern Trolls got mad about Biden committing to selecting a woman VP.
    640 days since Concern Trolls got mad about Biden telling an online shock jock "You aint Black if you support Trump".


    Biden ignoring the online comments section, truly the president we need in this time.

    Well, you know the conservative mindset. If you aren't trolling hard enough online, then you aren't fit to be president or any office of government. They should just go live under the bridge where they belong.

    This was a campaign promise from Biden. I know, it's been a while since we saw anyone both try to keep a campaign promise, and be competent enough to do it. And yet, here we are.

    *ahem*

    One might also argue that, to be both African-American and female, yet get into an American law school and be picked as a judge, they already have sterling qualifications. Because that's a hell of a double whammy obstacle to crawl through. I mean, it kind of rules out AA Certain Geography Of Law Schools immediately. African-American judges are about 3% of all judges, a figure that's well under half their representation in the US population.

    But yes, everyone else who posted earlier is correct. Until there's outrage that, for example, Trump only nominated white rich men, then there's no outrage Biden's only looking at African-American women. In fact, one could argue that, because Trump only nominated white rich men, it's time to change the dynamics.

    Don't worry, when Justice Thomas dies from an infected Trump being shoved up his ass, the replacement might be Asian or something.

    It didn't have to be asked, but the racist asked anyways.

    To be fair, that's not entirely true, Amy is indeed a female and not a male.

    It's gotta be asked, why were the top two picks for the GQP an alcoholic, possible rapist, and a woman that saw less time in court at her job than my crack head step-brother for federal crimes?

    I think we should keep the SCOTUS replacement talk in its own thread.

    Also note that race discussion is a forbidden topic. It is, of course, inseparable from the present situation and the campaign promise so I am willing to leave it alone in that context, but tread lightly and keep it in that thread.

    And how many days under Trump did those same concern troll complain about the deficit and national debt?

    New financial disclosures show Kyrsten Sinema is raking in cash from big GOP donors https://t.co/LDdiTk5Hk5

    My goodness let this be the last nai.

    Frikin paywal. Wanted to link.

    Supposedl, Sinema received $33k of small donations of $200 or less. While the remaining $2 million from big donors. Other politicians likely the same but Sinema from the opposing party.

    I mean this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

    But of course the stark reality is that Manchin and Sinema are useful in that they give the democrats the technical majority. Them being replaced by actual democrats is not really a possibility, so it's either the democrats have a slight majority with two stick-in-the-mud congresspeople... or the democrats don't have a majority at all.

    Unless some means can be found to replace them with actual democrats, stuff like this unfortunately amounts to a whole hill of beans.

    I get Manchin not being replaceable.
    I don't get Sinema not being replaceable, with the recent D lean in the state over the last few years and the fact that the other senator recently elected is also D. She's also not viewed as favorably as Manchin is by their respective constituents.

    I was a lifelong Democrat, until the NYT bought Wordle.
    Now my daily dose of wordplay harangues me about the Afghan withdrawal.

    Quick reminder about the Democratic "Senate Majority" - it's not. Like, literally it's not now, Sen. Lujan from TX had a stroke and it out recovering - hopefully he makes a full recovery and there is no lasting damage.

    But that means the Senate is now 50:49, so Democrats literally can't get anything passed unless they have one Republican vote with them.

    Just a reminder of how razor thin the "majority" is, especially when you consider Manchin and Sinema.

    Manchin and Sinema have yet to vote against any court nominee put forward by Biden. There's also been Murkowski and Collins voting for the picks as well. I think his SC pick will be ok.

    Minor correction but he's from NM not TX. But the point remains, and is the reason Breyer shoulda retired back when essentially everyone said he should have. God forbid something happen to Lujan but the Gov is a Dem. If this was Bernie, or Markey for example, and jeez we have an old af Senate all around. And Lujan actually brings the avg age down.

    Ted Cruz, apparently forgetting Trump divulged Israeli intelligence to the Russians in the Oval Office, and also Trump's close and friendly relationship with Putin, thinks "warmonger" Biden is just appeasing our adversaries.

    I guess Republicans want another war?
