She's just trying to save the caterpillars from destruction by evil Republicans exploiting nature by using them for her eyebrows.

So now The Bill of O'Reilly is in agreement with Anthrostradamus: the Democratic party is bound for a fracture and a fracture in a big way.

Maybe.

But back in the 60s the radicals took over after a period like we are seeing now. Nixon won two straight elections then Watergate took him down and the Dems were back in power.

Will that happen again? ......

It is a good point!

The history of the Democratic party between say . . . 1948 and 1978 is one that seems to be little studied but I suspect a thorough analysis of what syntheses existed would reveal some fascinating patterns. My understanding is that: coming as it did from its 19th century traditions as the 'pro-slavery' and 'anti-emancipation' party, the Democratic party was still VERY prevalent among southern white men right up until the late 1960s. I'm a bit unclear when and how the party which had been the pro-segregation party throughout the 1950s and 1960s became what it is today--the Political Correctness Party. I suppose the events of the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago reveal a good bit of what was going on, but I've always thought there must be much more to the story

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1968_Demo ... Convention

I can fish around in Wikipedia all day finding little tidbits like this one, but end of the day, a serious book written by a heavyweight historian who does NOT have any political ax to grind would be much better
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1948_Demo ... vil_rights

Quote:
n July 14, Northern Democrats led by Mayor of Minneapolis Hubert Humphrey and Illinois Senator Paul Douglas pushed for the convention to adopt a strong civil rights platform plank and endorse President Truman's pro-civil rights actions.[9] They were opposed by conservatives opposed to racial integration and by moderates who feared alienating Southern voters (regarded as essential to a Democratic victory), including some of Truman's own aides. They were supported by northeastern urban Democratic leaders, who thought the plank would appeal to the growing black vote in their cities (traditionally Republican).[10]

In a speech to the convention, Humphrey urged the Democratic Party to "get out of the shadow of states' rights and walk forthrightly into the bright sunshine of human rights." The convention adopted the civil rights plank in a close vote (651½-582½). In response, all 22 members of the Mississippi delegation, led by Governor Fielding L. Wright and former Governor Hugh L. White, walked out of the assembly.[11] Thirteen members of the Alabama delegation followed, led by Leven H. Ellis.[12] The bolted delegates and other Southerners then formed the States' Rights Democratic Party ("Dixiecrats"), which nominated Strom Thurmond for President and Wright for Vice President.

The fight over the civil rights plank was a launching point for Humphrey. He was elected to the United States Senate that year, and in 1964 was elected Vice President.


It would seem that the DNC from 1948 to at least 1968 if not all the way till 1978 were experiencing something (perhaps) similar to what it is experiencing today. Moderates like Humphrey (who from the descriptions of him sounds like a fine fellow: pro-civil rights, anti-Commie at least) were pushing for party to go pro-civil rights, but there were hold outs who wished to keep the party along the same path it had been on for a long time.

Finally with the courage of Ballsy-Ford to inspire us, maybe all of us who have been victims of Matt Damon's unwanted advances can come forward too.


This guy is a fucking comic genius!

Some on the left are ramping up the post-Kavanaugh confirmation rhetoric.

They are no longer satisfied with an impeachment of Kavanaugh.

Now they want to do away with the US Senate as a whole:

Google Exec. Responds to Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation: 'Abolish the Senate'

BY TYLER O'NEIL OCTOBER 9, 2018

On Friday, when Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced her support for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, ensuring that he would receive the votes required for confirmation, a Google executive tweeted an ominous message about America's system of government. He also joined an effort to bribe a U.S. senator.

"Abolish the Senate," tweeted Ken Norton, a former project manager at Google and currently a partner at GV — formerly Google Ventures — the company that directs the venture capital investments for Alphabet, Google's parent company. Norton has been at Google for 12 years.


Ken Norton

@kennethn
Abolish the Senate.

8:14 PM - Oct 5, 2018




Worse, Norton tweeted a call to action, announcing that he had donated money to a bribery scheme attempting to force Collins to vote "no" on Kavanaugh. "Match my pledge to Either Sen. Collins VOTES NO on Kavanaugh OR we fund her future opponent on [Crowdpac]!" he tweeted.


Ken Norton

@kennethn
Match my pledge to Either Sen. Collins VOTES NO on Kavanaugh OR we fund her future opponent on @Crowdpac! https://www.crowdpac.com/campaigns/3874 ... eipt-first

8:47 PM - Oct 5, 2018




The Crowdpac "quid-pro-quo bribe" raised money for a future challenger to Susan Collins, with the.understanding that the money would be returned to donors if Collins were to vote "no" on Kavanaugh. The scheme arguably violated federal laws against bribery, and Collins declared that she would not be swayed by it.


Continued at above link.

As info, a fundraising website was set up and has thus far collected almost $3.7 million for an un-named future Collins opponent to be named later:

LOL, fucking idiots. If they literally think that saying something like "abolish the Senate" should be taken seriously, they probably should be under psychiatric supervision!

That is effectively a call for a civil war.

"Abolish the Senate" :lol: :lol:

The Senate would have to vote on the Constitutional amendment to abolish ITSELF. :lol: :lol: That is worse than selling Frigidaires to Eskimos.
