Debate or not to debate? That is the question.

A talking filibuster might actually prevent more filibusters because debate means shining a light on important issues that the Teapublican party stands alone on.

We have the facts, the votes, the high road and an opportunity to force a talking filibuster.

DO IT!!!

4 years ago we needed three Republicans to save the ACA.

And we got them. It took people sleeping in hallways of the Capitol and hounding the hell out of all Republicans. It worked. And we had a blue tidal wave during the midterms.

Why isn't it happening with voting rights? Possibly because it isn't imminent death? It won't bankrupt the voter to not vote? This is all too shortsighted.

I recall Obama's speech in Chicago 10 days before he graciously handed off the keys to the Oval Office. He charged us all to do more. We are great at finding tweets and interesting headlines, and staying abreast of the dark actions of the Republican Party. I just fear we need more action that we are not providing.

How do we get charged up enough to get out and confront them in those halls?

Please respond with any and all ideas

Directv drops OAN.

DirecTV Dumping OAN In Major Blow To Right-Wing News Operation

Isn't OAN the network that AT&T funded from the get-go? I read that and it sealed the deal for us to leave them.

Spectrum News! A great bonus for leaving AT&T.

Spectrum has a dedicated local SoCal news station and another for Costa Mesa matters. A ton of local matters. Arts - Politics - food - local activities. Positivity on one channel.

Neither channel feature violence or car chases. And that is part of Spectrum News mission statement.

"Spectrum News operates on a model of not carrying news about violent crimes, common auto accidents and fires (known in the industry as 'if it bleeds, it leads' journalism), unless a story involving one is so large and affecting, that coverage is effectively required to remain competitive."
