    I can feel it, too.

    The Conservative Era? I think it ended yesterday.

    I think the Progressive Era opened up last night.

    Let us not waste 2 years this time around, folks.

    This time, let's go for the Brass Ring.

    Petition and demand that #OnceAgain Majority Leader of the United States Senate, Senator Harry Reid open the 113th Congress and immediately and forthwith bring to the Floor a motion to either alter significantly or completely remove Senate Rule 22. (the filibuster rule)

    Get rid of Filibusters - unless the ones wanting to hold one have to stand there and run their voices dry for however long it takes to get what they want or some compromise... like the Honorable Senator Bernie Sanders did not so long ago. If they're willing to "do the time" as it were, I'm willing to put up with it. We all know they couldn't use it in anywhere the volume they've been doing for five to ten years now - or all that voters would see when they tuned in to C-Span would be:

    ... some orangish, sniveling, crying dolt reading, what the heck is that, a comic book? Who is that? Is that our congressman? I told his staff if he pulled this stupid shit again this week I would not be voting for him again. Ever. Fucking filibuster, I fucking hate that word. Shee-it.
    Considering how many of those wretched #maroons #DidNotWin on Nov 6, how do you suspect the 'mushy middle voter' would react to non-stop exposure to the actual, stupid (it's not slander if it's true, and I heard a conservative, republican house member say, "there's no IQ requirement" to be a US Congressman.) people they've voted into office already? Not very well, is my prediction.
