    I liked when Dana said this:

    And I’ll tell you this, the closest that her ancestors ever came to American Indians was rounding up my ancestors....

    I'm glad I never watch NRA TV. I had to take a BC Powder after watching that.

    Brief history of Rule 19

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.eb8a0689fc80

    Are you aware that several Senators read the Coretta King letter the next day on the Senate floor without objection?
    Are you aware that the Republican Senate rejected Sessions for a federal judgeship? I guess times have changed.

    So, your position is that Session is a racist?

    Yeah, some time after "We'll just have to win, then."

    One of the Democrats said "Rule 19 against criticizing a member of the Senate cannot apply when the subject of the debate is the fitness of a member as a nominee." I actually think this argument has some merit. I believe Rule 19 is to prevent a Senator from saying, "I oppose this bill and oh, by the way, Senator Leghorn is a scumbag."

    I doubt if he is a racist. You agree that what I stated in my post is factual?

    When I saw the word Fauxcahontas I thought it was a thread about Kellyanne Conway! Remember Bowling Green!

    It was apparently instituted because a string of insults in 1902 led to a fistfight on the Senate floor. Artist depiction:

    If you refer to my posts related the current state of politics in the US to the collapse of institutions in the declining years of the Roman Republic, you will detect that I do not support any move by current incumbents that undermines the viability of our republican institutions. The institutions are more important than any particular decision.
    Shutting Warren down is ungentlemanly and undermines collegiality.
    "There is a spirit abroad in the earth: Radicalism. This ruthless, leveling Spirit wages war against the Family, the State and the Church. Nothing is safe from it. There is no sanctuary which it will not invade, no just, holy, time-honored sanction which it will not violate. It swaggers, in its Titanic audacity, against the empire of the Eternal." John L. Girardeau

    Here was the House version:

    Charles Sumner was, well, unable to defend himself. In Massachusetts, being a wussy makes a guy a hero.

    Thank you TW. Rarely do we find ourselves in agreement, but I do respect your opinion and admire your breadth of knowledge, to which mine pales in comparison.
