There is just a handful of Republicans in the entire Congress. The remaining seats on the right side of the isle are occupied by retrumplicans.
Retrumplicans have no use for laws or governing. Their only reason for existence is self gratification,and at the alter of the worlds greatest con man, d trump.
So forget about bipartisanship in the Old terminology.
It’s up to the Democrats and the one or two or three or four Republicans left in Congress to govern for America and if that means passing bills through reconciliation or possibly altering the filibuster then so be it. No need to waste any more talk on bipartisanship.
Are American journalists turning into European paparazzi? Looks to me as though they’re acting like wild hyenas on carrion.
With time slipping by so fast, I urge people to not get comfortable with the results of the recent election.
Before we know it, the campaigns ramp up again. As it stands, President Biden can get some stuff done. He can foster important legislation. But senate races on the horizon threaten to obliterate optimism…..and halt progress
There are many issues to take up-like infrastructure, human rights and justice for all. But let’s not forget climate change. The science is solid and the president has already put us back in the movement to make the necessary changes
We could go back if we don’t launch heated conversations now. Make folks realize how a few thousand votes could put us all out of business in a heartbeat

Is there anything more frustrating than the United States Senate over the past many years?
Thankfully, the Republicans ( Retrumplicans) no longer have the majority in the Senate and with any good fortune at all, the Democrats can adjust the rules so that the Retrumplicans don’t just squat in the middle of the road and hold up traffic, as they have been doing for 20 some years.
Pray for peace and decency and vote this bilious bunch out of the Congress.
In Chicago, I like the Wrigley building-even though he leaned to the right. I like the Tribune tower even though the newspaper leans right. I like the Hancock building unaware of John’s politics.
Every time I look North from Clark and Lake…..and see the Trump building with it’s big sign, it’s like getting kicked in the stomach
I don’t know if a campaign to remove it would succeed, but I would jump on board if enough folks felt as I do.

Gun legislation has become a pathetic political football kicked around this way and that with no common sense being applied to the issue.
It’s really quite simple. If a firearm is used in the commission of a crime put the criminal in jail, for a long, long time.
Set the potheads free and make room for the real violent criminals, and then put them in jail for a long, long time.
The vast majority of gun owners are responsible. It’s only the miniscule minority that picks up a gun and uses it in the commission of a crime. Those few should be treated harshly. That’s all there is to it. Leave the gun owners alone, put the violators away. Increase the sentence, not the number of laws.
Quit playing games with gun laws.
I’d like you to hear from my friend

We’ve been friends for decades and I’m glad to welcome him as a casual contributor to the Rahkanee blog. Here’s why; “Trump insulted Blacks Arabs young Latino kids…….(nixed the DACA program and put them in cages) and Asians. Old Tyrone is a nod to them all.”.
We’re all appalled by trump’s callous disregard for humanity. Thanks Tyrone.
But I have no sympathy for the white supremacists, neo Nazi, and all those who have defined their patriotism, with the aid of his enablers, in terms of Donald Trump’s lies. I can spare some compassion however, for those folks taken in by a world class con man, but not one bit for the elected officials who continue to perpetrated his evil.
What will tomorrow bring, given the second impeachment trial of the least worthy president of the U.S.A, coming to a vote. Forget the defense, there is none.
