    Remember the Roberts Court? This is the thing about today's Republicans that continues to amaze me - none of them seem to have any consideration, at all, for their legacy.

    I guess they expect Rs in charge to rewrite all the history books, like in Texas.

      to uphold the Affordable Care Act because he was conscious of his place in history.

      Guess when it comes to racial matters, he is less bothered.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      nothing to correct this.  That might be the bigger story.  

      Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

      according to the far right. And the far right figures that if they are wrong about the rapture? well, then climate change will take care of historical records.

      Just live for the moment.

      don't you know- and they just might force us all to go along with them. Words fail me for how hopeless it all is. We win elections and are rewarded with Jim Crow, fascism incorporated, Orwellian police state, etc. Just imagine how bad it would be if we had lost those elections. WTF.

        And concern themselves with 'tradition' and 'the process' and 'maintaining a collegial atmosphere', while the opposing side is utterly ruthless, recognizes no rules or boundaries, and will do absolutely anything necessary to achieve their goals.
