Some Fries With Your Stupid, Senators?

White people motoring.

Tiger Beat auf dem Potomac reports that at least 20 Senators have skipped out of town for the holidays even though there are A LOT of votes scheduled, because: work, what is it?

Who skipped town

Here’s the latest: The Senate may take recorded votes on several dozen of President Joe Biden’s nominees rather than passing them through the quicker unanimous consent process, thanks to the intransigence of several Republican senators. However, 20 senators missed the first vote Friday.

Named:

  • Richard Burr (R-N.C.)
  • Tom Cotton (R-Ark.)
  • Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.)
  • Steve Daines (R-Mont.)
  • Joni Ernst (R-Iowa)
  • Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.)
  • Deb Fischer (R-Neb.)
  • Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.)
  • Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.)
  • Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.)
  • Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)
  • Jerry Moran (R-Kan.)
  • Jon Ossoff (D-Ga.)
  • Rand Paul (R-Ky.)
  • Gary Peters (D-Mich.)
  • Rob Portman (R-Ohio)
  • Jim Risch (R-Idaho)
  • Mike Rounds (R-S.D.)
  • Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
  • Richard Shelby (R-Ala.)

Mostly Republicans, of course, and I include DiFi in that group. But I interrupted, do continue:

But seriously: What job in the private sector would let you off the hook if you skipped work simply because you wanted to start your holiday plans?!

If any of them are yours, be sure to let them know you saw what they did.

    If you call, remember to keep it respectful. Happening at the same time doesn’t always mean happening for the same reason.

    At length, since (1913) so many are so stupid of history.

    This from ‘Articles’ at Modern History Project dot ORG and, there, read Secrets of the Federal Reserve wherein the dollar bill was invented, or don’t read and stay stupid of history in your hand.

    Passage of the Federal Reserve Act (1913)
    The Glass Bill (the House version of the final Federal Reserve Act) had passed the House on September 18, 1913 by 287 to 85. On December 19, 1913, the Senate passed their version by a vote of 54-34. More than forty important differences in the House and Senate versions remained to be settled, and the opponents of the bill in both houses of Congress were led to believe that many weeks would yet elapse before the Conference bill would be ready for consideration.

    The Congressmen prepared to leave Washington for the annual Christmas recess, assured that the Conference bill would not be brought up until the following year. Now the money creators prepared and executed the most brilliant stroke of their plan. In a single day, they ironed out all forty of the disputed passages in the bill and quickly brought it to a vote. On Monday, December 22, 1913, the bill was passed by the House 282-60 and the Senate 43-23.

    “Unprecedented speed”, says the New York Times. One sees the fine hand of Warburg in this final strategy. Some of the bill’s most vocal critics had already left Washington. It was a long-standing political courtesy that important legislation would not be acted upon during the week before Christmas, but this tradition was rudely shattered in order to perpetrate the Federal Reserve Act on the American people.

    Senators present next week, in 2021, could pass BBB, voting rights, legal abortion, expand Supreme Court, tax the rich, and kill Phil O’Buster as soon as two or more from the fascist Republicans are boarded on planes gone home leaving a quorum behind. LEARN HISTORY.

    On the other hand … RoJo being out of Washington has got to be an improvement to the Senate. The increase in average IQ points alone is massive.

    Fucking DiFi. You could pick someone out of the phone book (yeah, I’m old, I remember phone books) and they’d probably be better at the job than she is now.

    In Di-Fi’s defense, I hear she is always not there even when she is there, so her physical absence is no big deal.
