6:41 So, it's a rich people's blockade for poor people's desires, just like the electoral college.

Look, I agree, but before it's killed I would really like someone to filibuster something Cruz wants by reading Ted Cruz fanfiction (preferably something small, I don't want to really fork over the country much more). I've never seen any TC fanfiction, however according to the rules of the internet, it exists somewhere.
I just want that. Maybe for Christmas.

John Oliver's most-controversial statement ever: "[Jimmy Stewart] was a bad actor."

I disagree with John Oliver a lot but the Jimmy Stewart thing goes to far.

I have long defended the filibuster for the sole reason to prevent far reaching, major legislation that affects millions of lives from being able to pass with a simple majority. I have always believed such things should, if at all possible, have agreement with a larger majority of the Senate. If there is enough will to pass something over a filibuster, then compromise and working together becomes more likely.
But, those days are gone...

Did anybody else think of the video for Nobody Speak ( youtubesmov.com/mov/YmzdvQE2CUN/vid.html? ) when he spoke about senators brawling mid-session?

Obama is Black. therefore the filibuster will be weaponized to ridiculous levels of abuse to restore a norm of white supremacy.

Noooo you don't. You can't say Jimmy Stewart was a bad actor in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington! That and It's a Wonderful Life are SACRED. You do NOT go after those great american classics, no way!

1. Filibusteers should be required to talk.
2. Should a talker become the victim of aggravated assault and be unable to continue speaking, somebody else needs to jump in for him. Bring back the good old days of 7:48

Love John Oliver, but Jimmy Stewart was not a bad actor, nor were they "all pretty bad back then."

Ok I'm sold. Filibustering definitely needs to die. I'd rather the smaller risk of bad legislation than the guarantee of nearly no good legislation and even less overall progress on legislation as a whole.

Ted Cruz is a filibuster cocksucker.

Is that why a cup of coffee or tea is served with a saucer? I always wondered what the point of the saucer was. To hold a lemon slice? To catch spills? To hold your teaspoon?
