Democrats are working on........

The filibuster was popularized in the Jim Crow era by Southerners who wanted to prevent the Northern majority from passing legislation in favor of civil rights for Black citizens. Abolish it.

Replying to @AJentleson
The de facto supermajority threshold was first forged against civil rights. Jim Crow-era segregationist senators repurposed a 1917 Senate rule to force every civil rights bill to clear a supermajority threshold, blocking them all. Only civil rights bills were blocked in this way.

And here people wonder why the sound of a southern accent has always grated on my ears.

THIS is why!

LOL 

Yes yes, I know. Not all southerners are dumb***ed racists or backwater hicks. STILL though, I gotta say that accent has never been one of my favorites, and especially whenever I hear some "southern belle" attempting to put on the charm..."Honey Lamb"!

(...okay, and now where were we here?...oh yeah...what "Democrats are working on"...and so, GIVE 'EM HELL, JOE!!!)

LOL...some more now

When I hear a southern accent, I always think about Rod Steiger "In the Heat of the Night".

His character got what he deserved in the movie and Rod Steiger got what he deserved as an actor-- an Oscar for that role.

 Somebody had to do it and he did a great job.

C'mon now, ham! Didn't you notice how hard and almost assuredly doomed to failure Nazi jokes are after seeing the one I posted yesterday in Nip's "Is the covid vaccine mandatory" thread???

(...and didn't you ALSO notice that THAT one of MINE got absolutely NO response from anyone EITHER?!)  ;)

He did indeed.  But, when I hear a Southern accent I look to see if it's somebody I worked with at Cadillac.  Was a LOT of drawls goin' on in that place.  ;)   But someone go warn MM

If the GOP is filibustering, and as most GOP members are filled to the gills with hot air, then surely "global warming" will be a sure reality, as that's more hot air than the atmosphere can safely handle!  ;)

like filibustering to keep the filibuster.

A more accurate description of the filibuster rules. Republicans and Democrats, Northerners and Southerners and Westerners have used it over the course of time.  It was not just used to kill civil rights bills.

Well heck, you Southern Boy, you! Didn't I SAY up there that I know "not all southerners are dumb***ed racists or backwater hicks"?!

(...and I know you can't help it if you probably have one of those accents, RIGHT?!!!)  ;)
