Re: SCOTUS: Dems introduce bill to add 4 new Justices

I guess the ending the filibuster comes first. The ram it through with a slim majority. That would certainly be a requirement. However, I think there are a few democrats in the Senate who aren't likely to go along. I could be wrong (it wouldn't be the first time) but while this is certainly a conce...

Re: Merrick Garland Really?

It's likely he decided to pick his fights. No sense in protesting just to score points if it makes his life harder. As a Republican Senate leader, he has to deal with the current administration. Poking them in the eye when it produces no useful result is simply bad policy.

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

It's probably more accurate to say that grid failures CAN be cascading events. The article above says the real cause was a software bug that prevented operators from knowing they needed to redistribute the load.

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

The power losses are due to a variety of factors, not only wind/solar failures. Gas & coal plants also had problems. By Wednesday, 46,000 megawatts of power were offline statewide — 28,000 from natural gas, coal and nuclear plants and 18,000 from wind and solar, according to the Electric Reliabi...

Re: Impeachment: It's a TRAP!

I agree with the part that said that the trial will be a "distraction" to divert public attention from other things Biden is doing or not doing. The rest of it is a valid argument, but so is srothstein's. Once again what do Pelosi and Schumer have that is making all their "colleagues...
