    1. @J C. clinically speaking, all sociopaths are narcissists. Term limits would be a good start to eradicate the problem.

    2. @Andy Newman Not technically, that’s dual diagnosis. A malignant narcissist. But they do tend to have high narcissism, that’s correct.

    3. @J C. yes I didn’t mean as a dual diagnosis but more of a discovery whilst diagnosing for the former. Good catch!

    4. MOST????? I’m beginning to think that is the main requirement to become a politician. Nothing but a bunch of no-polar narcissists.

  1. Don’t give in to them
    Keep the power you have
    It looks like you are going to need it

    1. @ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ so instead of realizing that this only specifically affecta a minority group you would rather change the time of a weekly religous sect to (arguably the most popular in america) just to make it so where black voters can vote when they have for decades? u dont actually want the truth, u want to spin EVERYTHING to justify yourself as not advocating for racist legislature..yall pathetic

    2. @This Guyyy u think they changed the time because no one is out voting sunday mornings???? thats OVERWHELMINGLY the time of the day that elder individuals vote, i for one dont like making life harder for elderly in this country as i have some sliver of respect for them as it seems you dont

    3. @This Guyyy if your Catholic yes and black churches do start early but don’t end to late . There goes your privilege if you haven’t experience it you think it don’t happen wrong .

    4. @Jeff Rudzinski Wise words indeed Grasshopper however the For the Democrats Act prohibits States requiring photo ID, purging dead people off voter rolls, automatic voter registration at motor vehicle license centers with teens as young as 16, as well as any non citizens allowed to get Id’s or driver’s license. Same day registration and vote which can lead to fraud. Absentee ballots to everyone on outdated voter rolls regardless of the pandemic being over. Basically it is anything goes votes still being counted 2 weeks later. So sad!!

    1. Nope. Congress has no business passing laws. The fact congress isnt working shows the system does work. The only thing that needs to be done is replace the oligarch puppets in congress.

    2. @Dave Waldon We already in a socialist’s state. We have no choice to bail out the wealthy because we cant compete with China when they infuse cash into their companies whenever they want to prop them up /.

    1. @Glen Carbon The essential characteristic of socialism is the denial of individual property rights; under socialism, the right to property (which is the right of use and disposal) is vested in “society as a whole,” i.e., in the collective, with production and distribution controlled by the state, i.e., by the government.
      Socialism may be established by force, as in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics—or by vote, as in Nazi (National Socialist) Germany. The degree of socialization may be total, as in Russia—or partial, as in England. Theoretically, the differences are superficial; practically, they are only a matter of time. The basic principle, in all cases, is the same.
      The alleged goals of socialism were: the abolition of poverty, the achievement of general prosperity, progress, peace and human brotherhood. The results have been a terrifying failure—terrifying, that is, if one’s motive is men’s welfare.
      Instead of prosperity, socialism has brought economic paralysis and/or collapse to every country that tried it. The degree of socialization has been the degree of disaster. The consequences have varied accordingly.

    2. I seriously doubt you even know what communism is. We’re so far right in this country that conservatives in other parts of the world distance themselves even from our democrats.

    3. @John Cocktosun To start with, it wasn’t a definition. It was more a misinformed regurgitation of propaganda.

  2. Sinema must know by now that she’s in not only her first term but her last term in the Senate.

    1. She’ll get replaced by a republican anyway. It’s a lose lose for you democrats no matter what. Same with the senator from West Virginia. Not sure why you are so salty.

    2. @Ron Connor Arizona has gone blue forever; if Sinema loses it’ll be to a Democrat in a primary.

  3. Why should they get a raise or a check if they’re not raising the Federal minimum wage?!!!

  4. They never should have changed the rule requiring a filibustering senator to actually stand there and keep speaking the ENTIRE time.

    1. the rules is really about the 60 vote majority to pass legislation as opposed to just a majority of 51

    2. @Michael Steal Nay. The “60 votes” are required to end the filibuster (known as “cloture” – the end of debate on a bill). John M is right. They should be required to stand there and filibuster or debate, not just allow the bill to languish in the air because 60 Senators didn’t vote to end the “debate”, which isn’t really going on.

    3. Laws should not have been unilaterally altered before an election . ANd 13% of the nations counties id NOT a victory.

  5. anything one side proposes is shot down until it’s re-offered by their side, then it’s a no-brainer

  6. They want to pass those voting laws because they know that they don’t they’re going to lose in 2022. But they may lose anyway. And then they’ll be really regretting that they did this.
