  • Verbose nerd alert: So there appears to be a small mistake in the video regarding the voting threshold for confirming Supreme Court nominees. Moreover, it’s been mentioned in the comments that the Democrats eliminates the filibuster on Supreme Court nominees, which is not true. What the Senate Democrats did was to amend Senate rules to eliminate the filibuster for most presidential appointees, including most judicial nominees-but NOT those to Supreme Court. Prior to that, the existence of the filibuster raised the de facto confirmation threshold to 60 votes (so 3/5ths, not 2/3rds, which is the part Grey got wrong), as 60’votes are needed to invoke cloture, i.e. end a filibuster. And that de facto 60-vote threshold had only been a thing since the 1960s or so. The Democrats made this rule change because Republicans filibustered a whole bunch of President Obama’s nominees to the federal judiciary, plus his nomination of Chuck Hagel to be defense secretary, his pick to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, etc. This was really unusual; for decades, the Senate had generally respected the right of Presidents to make appointments, and filibusters would happen here and there on specific nominees. They didn’t wholesale block everyone the way McConnell and the Republicans did. Here’s where the 2/3rds thing comes in: Normally a 2/3rds “supermajority” is needed to amend Senate rules, but the so-called “nuclear option” can be invoked to allow rule changes with just a simple majority. Slightly Biased Tl;dr: The Republicans kept being bastards because (presumably) Black president, so the Democrats tried to put a stop to it, and the Republicans retaliated by trying to set a world record for bastardly behavior. For about 40 years before all that drama, by tradition rather than rule, presidential appointees needed 60 votes-not 67-to be confirmed by the Senate.

  • what was the boring part? the fact that it was the democrats that first used the "nuclear option" and set the precedent? but they didn't use it for a supreme court nomination!!!!! yeah, because a vacancy didn't pop up when they were in the position to use it. tell me they wouldn't have. tell me they won't use it for that purpose in the future. tell me they won't use bullshit rules to try to pack the court in the future. other than packing the court you know for a fact they will; and packing the court would set such an insane president they'd have to be nuts to do it, but you know there is a chance that they will do it any way. really happy to see that this video was non partisan. he's definitely smart enough to know when he would be hypocritical for leaning one way or the other. kudos.

If party A has the presidency and wants to nominate a recess appointment, then one of his guys shows up unexpectedly when three days have been taken, demand a roll call, revealing no quorum, therefore it's day 4 and so recess and bump your judge in?

  • I enjoy how the court has to be like "Official Jargon" just to say "Good work everyone who may or may not be here, more time off for you and me!" The constitution should be updated to reflect the times. There were a lot of ironically shenanigans that went into making it to fit the times and ideas of the people who wrote it. Like how the electoral college works, or that fact that it isn't actually a democracy by design, because majority rule just doesn't actually work unless all of the populace is equally educated on all topics. They with out a doubt are not. I should not vote on how a plane is made if I don't at the bare minimum understand how aerodynamics work. But it's funny, because us American's complain about things not being democratic and then quote the constitution, not having actually read or understand what it's actually saying, nor the time period and technological advancement during that time it was written for. The constitution was not written for you, it was written for the people who made it and how they wanted the country to work.

We teach people to say yes to pressure and authority and never teach them how to discuss or have a proper argument with out metaphorically throwing poo at the person/party we don't agree with. We're still apes because we refuse to acknowledge our shortcomings and learn to deal with them effectively. Any society/species/country that says it's at it's peak, the best or most evolved is one that's absolutely subject to Dunning-Krueger effect.

  • People may complain about the constant bickering between the different branches of government, but that's the whole point. The founding fathers didn't want a system that flips every time a new president steps in with congressional support. They didn't want political parties either, but that's a separate issue. It's actually much more stable for the country as a whole for things to take longer to implement.

  • People can pretend to love the supreme court as much as they like, but due to the nature of appointing them, they are not in the place to have such power. They can basically decide the outcome of a presidential election which then can influence the court itself with appointing new judges. Representatives should embody above average morals and common sense and currently I'm not sure they qualify for average.

  • If you're tired of being told how to live your life, of being robbed every time you make a dollar, of politicians that make children look reasonable and mature.. maybe you ought to do your research on the Libertarian party. Their candidate is on every state's ballot, and yet the news doesn't mention them. It's almost like the media on both sides has some vested interest in hiding them from you. :strokeschin: But seriously. Google it even for a few minutes. It's not perfect, but in general they may be able to weed out a lot of crap like this by getting rid of special interests. You've got too much government and their first priority is protecting their position, their agendas, and the people who funded their campaigns. You. Come. Last. So I recommend checking out Jo Jorgensen, who in online polls has more support than Biden a lot of the time. It will mean giving something up, because to get rid of politicians who thrive off control means taking away that control. That means YOU can't make everything you don't like illegal. If you can live with that, we can make it better. If you can't, by all means keep voting for your own oppression.
