    And what is the solution? People have gotten a taste for blood and now they want it.

    Obviously, you aren't familiar with California. And tent cities? Gavin is now building high rise apartment buildings for the druggies out on the street. They should change the name from "homeless" to "brainless" for the great majority of these people. Billions of city, state, and federal money given to help people who don't want any help just to shoot up and die.

    The truly "homeless" through no fault of their own deserve help. That is America. Not what you see on the street. Its really a nightmare to watch. And its not just in major cities, its all around you.

    Watch how many on the left turn on it again just like Schumer did when he was strongly against it and now is in favor of it

    For sure. Both sides, especially Schumer and the old buzzard, McConnell, have been playing this tag game for decades. Another reason for term limits for all, BTW.

    I do remember that when the Dems tried their very best to obstruct the civil rights legislation.

    I am not saying that they will all be won. I am saying that they are winnable.

    You're in no position to be calling anyone "brainless".

    Many did, and the funny thing is that those who are still alive and most of their descendants are now Republicans. Surprisingly, they actually figured out that it was a much better fit.

    End the filibuster. Watch the party centrist stop using the language of the extremes now that they canít promise what they donít want to deliver. See some bad legislation get passed and some lawmakers pay the price. People want someone to have solutions that arenít just rhetorical or theoretical. They want action and will continue to elect more extreme politicians till they get it.

    I don't see how that is a solution to what you proposed. Requiring fewer votes is absolutely not going to incentivize bipartisanship.

    Fewer votes means more stuff gets passed. More stuff gets passed the more politicians get judged for being legislators and not semi-regular guests on cable news shows. Politicians leaders will be more inclined to reign in their bomb throwing party members who promise things they canít deliver. It also incentivizes them to work across the isle to get laws done that wonít just be thrown out the next time theyíre out of office. The filibuster is a crutch politicians use to blame the other party for their inability to do anything.

    That's apocryphal.

    Got to admire how honest conservatives are about their lack of morals or values.

    Would you be upset if the GOP eliminated the filibuster in Ď24 when you guys wanted it done right now? Honest question. You would support that right because you think it should be gone?
