Attribution: Debt Ceiling by John Darkow, Columbia Missourian
Sorry to see Biden moving toward concession on debt deal. If you bargain with terrorists they’ll just get worse. Just raise the limit without Congress (the 14th Amendment scenario), or at least make them think you will. Sure they’ll sue, but would the courts really want to be blamed for defaulting the nation by ruling against the president?

Shakespeare understood Trump & MAGAts

Love a little of ol’ Shakes in the morning.
Craig – if he does give anything for a ceiling change it falls in to the one area I have always had reservations about, giving away to be “bipartisan”. That left when the round cheater Newt entered the House to be sworn in 1994. It is nice to have, but that republican party is long gone.
Something very exciting happened yesterday, Dems took cities that were once solid r. Jacksonville and Colorado Springs. I never expected the Springs to change, not with Focus on the Family and Fort Carson and the US Air Force Academy there. It will be interesting to see how the new mayor handles the job, might be a center Dem, might not be, but he is a Dem.
Maybe Mr Biden is holding a very strong hole card. I heard him the other day lamenting pres obama’s actions on that one during his term so he’s “aware”. And he ain’t no dummy.
Hard to believe he’d “cave” to such obvious horse shit. Maybe he wants to give Kevin some of the same hotshot that would give him an “out” from his mongrel chorus.
And there are several republicans who haven’t voiced where they’re at, with Kev and his Harpies or with The Right Thing.
Blue B, What I like is that as 2024 approaches, significant cities in 2 (OK, FL-duh doesn’t really count) states have swung toward D. Not sure how far out into the suburbs the voting goes for mayor of either of those cities, but it seems to me to be a sign that the backlash against Rs trying to play OB/GYN is a real thing.
good for them
Penguin Random House, PEN America sue Florida school district over book bans – The Hill
pat, same a-holes that complain about violating 1st amendment rights when some RW dipshit gets shouted down or disinvited to speak at a college campus. Forking hypnocrites – the RW nutcase book burners, that is.
calendar’s getting a bit crowded
It looks like the greedy old perverts are going to side with “George whatshisname” and not bring the motion to the floor to toss his fat butt out the door.
So far we know they side with just about every perversion, fascists act, white supremacist motion and anti-everybody who is not a rich, white bastard. Quite the accomplishment. Lie, cheat, steal, take the little kid’s lunch money, kick LGBTQA in the face, steal grandma’s life savings by scaring her into some lie. Yeah, “republicans” are scum.
Scum along with Mitch
Just in case someone is wondering what it feels like to have the entire country, every legislature, filled with anti-LGBTQA legislation, it sucks. Within the little groups we have there are posts of do not do suicide. The most vulnerable easily kill themselves under pressure when there is no way forward.
I will shock a few of you, hopefully many of you, children kill themselves when they do not understand and do not have the paths to live as they want to. Yes, six year olds find a way to off themselves. Younger too. All of those anti-Trans care statutes have a bloody ending. Kids figure out how to hang themselves.
Those laws against Transgender care do have a terrible result.
Here’s the deal: McCarthy has nowhere near the votes for a deal and therefore cannot negotiate debt ceiling. You need 218 votes. GOP has maybe ~150. They will need anywhere from 50-100 House Dems to pass anything. Dems have 213 votes for a clean bill & just need to pick up 5.
We got a preview of this during McCarthy’s disaster of Speaker vote in January. He doesn’t know how many votes he has on what. That’s what makes this “negotiating” rudderless.
How do you deal with someone who cannot deliver passage? Clean bill needs 5. He can’t pass without Dems
BB ….yes, the republican world is a bleak and ugly place.
where da music go?
