Filibuster reform

I don’t have high hopes. Mitch McConnell can’t afford to let it happen. In the last three years, when the number of filibusters have exploded to numbers never before seen in our history, in that same three years, Mitch McConnell’s personal wealth has exploded, as he has been able to control legislation to favor his wealthy donors. Or maybe, hey, it’s just a big coincidence, and there is no relationship between the two things. As William Burroughs said, “In the magical universe there are no coincidences and there are no accidents. Nothing happens unless someone wills it to happen.” Somehow I don’t think Mitch got rich purely by chance. But that’s just me.

About JP

We're two guys who met in college, in 1980. We've stayed in touch, and like to talk politics, current events, music and religion. JP is nore liberal than Sid, but not in every way. We figure that dialogue stimulates ideas, moderates perspective, and is in general friendly. These are things we need badly in these dangerous times. The blog name is taken from a song by Bruce Cockburn.
