7. Long-time Senators have long memories,

which include Democrats using the filibuster to stop Republicans from doing terrible things. That's why they're reluctant to remove it. They have a point. Republicans could easily regain a majority in the Senate. Right now, it's evenly split. Just one seat could shift the majority back to the Republicans.

While I understand your frustration, you really have to look at this from a long view, as well.

The only real answer is to elect a solid majority in the Senate in 2022 and 2024. That will remove the problem. Until then, the Senate is split 50/50. We need to do better at getting out the vote. That's what is really needed.

Don't blame Feinstein or any of the Senators who have served for many terms. They remember what you do not, apparently.

Not so much more do you remember.

You don't remember Democrats using the filibuster to put a stop to some Republican hanky-panky? I do. I remember a lot of things that have happened in the Senate. I've been a political animal since 1962.

Think again.

DEMOCRATS DO NOT HAVE A MAJORITY IN THE SENATE! WE DO NOT! It is evenly divided, with the VP casting a vote in ties. That's all we have. We need more Democrats in the Senate. Until we get that, we are pretty much stuck with things as they are.

Think about it.

57. I know a Wobbly, & though it's tempting to say, "and you, sir, are no..." I'm sure you feel cloaked...

…in righteousness. Nonetheless, a person can still learn.

I’ll keep the DiFi issue short, because the last time I tried to lay it out cogently, the post I was responding to was gone before I was done.

My Senator is not an “untouchable darling of DU” as someone called her. She’s a woman who has spent her life in service to Democratic principles and to the people of California.

If she were an old-time Southern politician still able to breathe and vote, she’d be wheeled out onto the floor of the Senate until the age of 100, cherished by the voters who sent her there and by her fellow Southern politicians.

But not us Dems, oh no, because age and experience mean nothing to some of our cohort, even absent a little forgetfulness. The proof of that was the big push to get rid of Nancy Pelosi in favor of someone still wet behind the ears.

71. Feinstein symbolizes the ossification of the Democratic leadership

Why did Democrats flood the plain with positive ads during a pandemic in 2020? The only thing that can describe that laughingly stupid choice is that Democrats are too wedded to old habits are are unable to adapt to new conditions.

We seriously need new blood in the Democratic political leadership. I think Dem elected politicians are on average older than their goops counterparts, even though the Democratic party itself is younger.

Last year Donna Shalala was in the House only 2 years, she was 79 in 2020.

A Florida colleague of hers, Darren Soto, is only 40 years old but is now in his third term in the House.

Shalala is older, Soto has seniority.

111. "The only real answer is to elect a solid majority in the Senate in 2022 and 2024"

Are any experts actually projecting that Democrats will attain a 60 seat majority?

Also, do you think the current Republican Party would refrain from nuking the filibuster if they were to gain a one seat majority?

If not, it makes no sense to refrain from ending the filibuster now on the premise that Republican's wouldn't if given the opportunity when it's to their advantage.

The only other reasons for not ending the filibuster is a belief that it is good for our democracy, or that doing so would violate the intent of our nation's Founders. The latter is not factual, and giving the minority power to block the will of the majority is not a feature of any state government in the United States or any other functional democracy in the world -- because it's a bad idea and counter to the fundamental premise of democracy.

We have the first Ten Amendments, and others, to protect the rights of the minority.

112. What "experts?"

We have two opportunities, one in 2022 and another in 2024. I know of no experts who are able to make predictions about those two election with any real accuracy. Furthermore, events and election efforts will affect both.

At the present time, the votes are not there to end the filibuster. That is clear. My two Senators would vote to do so. Those are the only ones I have even a possibility of influencing.

The Senate, as a legislative body has such a rule. Only that body can change it, short of a constitutional amendment. So, there it stands. I don't like it either. I can do nothing to change it.

So, I must rely on elections and try to influence them. If you have another path, please share it. If not, then I ask you to join me in trying to gain seats in the Senate.

16. You're not wrong ...

'Enforcement' is based on someone deciding to report your post and then a small jury of other members deciding that your post 'breaks a forum rule'. I think the jury size is like 7 but I'm not entirely sure on the number but I'm pretty sure it's not like 100.

I'm also fairly certain that some people on juries only read the 'top line' of the rule ('Don't Bash Democrats' for example) and don't refresh their memory as to the 'letter of the law' that follows (the detailed description of the rule).

This process (and relatively small jury size) means that there's an arbitrary nature to post removal.

I just said the mechanism in place inherently means there's something of an arbitrary nature to the proceedings. This observation is a simple, statistically unassailable fact

I purposefully avoid discussing 'personal feelings about the sites administration' on regular forums because there's a rule about that too ... insofar as there's a specific forum for discussing such things, which is what the person who replied to you was hinting at.

She is clearly experiencing some decline with her advanced age.

However she has earned the right to depart on her own terms, as so many of her colleagues in similar positions have over the years.

I wish folks here would hold their fire, but the time for quiet conversations and planning, has clearly come.

64. Terms of Service

https://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=termsofservice

Support Democrats

Do not post support for Republicans or independent/third-party "spoiler" candidates. Do not state that you are not going to vote, or that you will write-in a candidate that is not on the ballot, or that you intend to vote for any candidate other than the official Democratic nominee in any general election where a Democrat is on the ballot. Do not post anything that smears Democrats generally, or that is intended to dissuade people from supporting the Democratic Party or its candidates. Don't argue there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats.
Why we have this rule: Democratic Underground is an online community for politically liberal people who understand the importance of working together to elect more Democrats and fewer Republicans to all levels of American government, and as such we expect our members to support and vote for Democrats at election time. Rare exceptions are granted at the sole discretion of the DU Administrators. (Current exceptions: None.)

Don't bash Democratic public figures

Do not post disrespectful nicknames, insults, or highly inflammatory attacks against any Democratic public figures. Do not post anything that could be construed as bashing, trashing, undermining, or depressing turnout for any Democratic general election candidate, and do not compare any Democratic general election candidate unfavorably to their general election opponent(s).
Why we have this rule: Our forum members support and admire a wide variety of Democratic politicians and public figures. Constructive criticism is always welcome, but our members don't expect to see Democrats viciously denigrated on this website. This rule also applies to Independents who align themselves with Democrats (eg: Bernie Sanders).

MIRT

The role of MIR Team members is simple: they are empowered to revoke the posting privileges of people who show up at DU with the intent to disrupt.

When DU was founded in 2001, some were young and a whole lot of us were in what I like to think of as robust middle age. We’d lived through the 1960s in all its iterations. We’d been politically active all our adult lives. ……

That was 20 years ago, and a lot of the original group is still here. DU trends older. We’re not snot-nosed kids, so don’t bother talking to us as though we are.

15. Barbara see's this as "a glass half empty".

She is weary of the prospect that Republicans would pass whatever they wanted by a simple majority if they were to regain both Branches again.

32. She has been a strong advocate for gun safety.

The fact that the gun nuts don’t mind her so much now, should tell you all you need to know. They cheer that she is against the filibuster, which is the only thing standing between them and us expanding the court to get court decisions with the correct result; namely gun safety.

I don’t get her thinking at all on this. She wants gun safety; it can’t happen if this Supreme Court will rule against anything she helps get passed. Yet here we are, she is against getting rid of the filibuster.

42. She's got hers. We are not part of her club.


In 2006, Senator Dianne Feinstein and her husband Richard Blum purchased a new home for $16.5 million at the corner of Lyon and Vallejo Streets in San Francisco.

The $16.5 million mansion -- which sits at the foot of Vallejo Street, between the Presidio and some of the city's most hoity-toity addresses -- offers a sweeping view of the bay.

It's right off what Herb Caen christened the "Gold Rush" -- the final two blocks of upper, upper Broadway, where the residents include Ann and Gordon Getty, Oracle founder Larry Ellison, and Mimi Haas -- as in the Levi Strauss Haases.

And if she’s still not convinced, perhaps streets filled with protestors, perhaps surrounding her home or favourite restaurant, during the entire August recess…

56. I remember

how difficult and sad it was taking the car keys away from mom, and later dad. They were both amazing people who took down redlining, founded a museum. worked to save native plants and habitats, etc. in our town.

As we honor our elders, time moves on.

85. I'm a California voter and I haven't been able to bring myself to vote for her anymore.

Why? She is good on gun control and women’s issues. Other than that, not so good. She is more of an economic conservative, rubber stamped George Bush’s judicial appointments, was gung ho to attack Iraq, even tho they had nothing to do with 9.11, then she and her husband made money on the war. Her husband was also making money on taking apart our post offices. On top of that she seems to be losing it mentally. I would like to see her gracefully retire and get someone young, smart, energetic, and truly liberal in her place.

87. She is old, white, and rich

so, she can live in a bubble.

She will be OK no matter what happens, so will her family. They are insulated from reality by the bubble that wealth gives one.

She might feel differently if she lived among us groundlings.

94. "Most lucrative Senate seats" a phrase only The Nation could print

Oh yeah, those paragons over at The Nation are uniquely endowed with the ability to discern the politically corrupt. And guess what! It's exactly those politicians that don't wholeheartedly support The Nation's political agenda. What a coincidence.

All senators have the same salary. To say a senate seat is "more lucrative" is to say, exactly, that the senator is on the take. Diane Feinstein is not on the take. Fuck The Nation for so casually writing that as if we should all take it for granted that all senators (except for a pure few, of course!) are corrupt.
