Posted in: Voting bill collapses; Democrats unable to change filibuster See in context

"... deployed by opponents of civil rights legislation = Democrats".

Recall that it was the SOUTHERN DEMOCRATS who vociferously opposed: the Emancipation of slaves, and the Civil Rights Act. The Jim Crow Democrats.

Because Pepperidge Farms remembers!

A reminder from US History: When the bill (Civil Rights Act) came before the full Senate for debate on March 30, 1964, the "Southern Bloc" of 18 southern Democratic Senators and lone Republican John Tower of Texas, led by Richard Russell, launched a filibuster to prevent its passage. Russell proclaimed, "We will resist to the bitter end any measure or any movement which would tend to bring about social equality and intermingling and amalgamation of the races in our [Southern] states."

That filibuster was run by DEMOCRATS, and LBJ, with his deep-seated racist roots, supported its passage only for political points.

Shortly before the visible blast, there was likely a collapse of the "dome" causing a large volume of seabed and seawater to be sucked into the crater and then also violently expelled as a combination of steam explosion and volcanic material ejection. This caused a ripple effect, possibly directional vs vertical, and led to impacts of varying magnitudes as waves combined with other waves.

If you feel like you have a cold, it's quite likely to be oh-my-crone, but you'll not likely be able to get a test unless you have "serious" symptoms according to whatever conditions set by the govt. The true number of infected people is possibly some factor higher(10X?20X?...)but with most of those either asymptomatic or having such mild symptoms that few get a test.

There is/will be a sharp rise in the numbers of positive test results, then a rapid drop in cases as well, just as has already begun in other countries.

The case numbers and severely sick numbers being disconnected.

If you have actual symptoms, then yes get yourself tested. The tests SHOULD be limited to those exhibiting symptoms. Otherwise, the hypochondriacs occupy capacity of actually ill people. It's like going to a cemetery to find out if you're dead.

Kishida is clueless about how businesses work and have to remain solvent, not just for the moment, but for their survival in the future which government dopes create more obstacles. It's not like businesses can just print out money willy-nilly like the government.
