Nothing is usual these days. But I think a lot of people are seeing Turtle and the GOP for what they've become with things like this.
Amy McGrath should hire Biden's ad team.

I sure hope so, because there's no way they will.
You mean the same House that voted to reauthorize the Patriot Act sua sponte?

Though, looking at the title of it, its sort of murky if its good or bad, since it specifically refers to ... here, let me link the actual rollcall:


Statement of Purpose:
To remove internet website browsing information and search history from scope of authority to access certain business records for foreign intelligence and international terrorism investigations.

Yeah the intent was to remove the option for warrantless searches of browser info and search history. Even Ted Cruz voted to remove the option. Yet much like his supporters, Bernie didn't vote.

Looking at the votes, I just.... it can't be all good if Voldetor voted for it.... it just can't. And the bill its an amendment to, passed the House - so, it almost seems like there is something here we are all missing.

Because that bill includes funding for the postal service.

You know, there's nothing that surprises me about McTurtle or the Trump administration anymore.
