Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them...just waiting and hoping for one to come out like a mouse from its hole.

Judging for Ourselves

 

A quick rant: this is a democracy, where the majority wins. I don't really care who's in office - if they're in office because they were elected, then the Senate ought to have the right to vote for the judicial nominees appointed by the president. Period. Anything else is not democracy - it's politics and subversive. If the other side doesn't like the judges appointed, then they should vote against them and aim to win in the next election to send up the appointees they'd like to see in court. But to constantly threaten filbuster is childish. Grow up.

Both sides are equally guilty of this. So there's really nothing you can do short of running for congress.

If it were Republicans threatening to filibuster and not allow the up or down vote, I'd rant just as much. You can hold me to it :)
