75. Yep, that started a while ago...

Really under Reagan, but Rahm Emmanuel didn't help. He did more to turn the Democrats into "Republican Lite" than anyone else. The "go along to get along" attitude doesn't work with modern day Rethugs. I forget which one it was, but a few years back, one of those bastards said that his idea of compromise "was Democrats doing what we tell them to do".

The young guns grew up listening to the bullshit coming out of Republican mouths, and have no fucks left to give. All gentility & compromise has gotten us was Trump. Republicans have been behaving like school yard bullies for too long because we've been passive for too long. So now they're plotting a coup because they didn't get their way, and whining about Democrats posting mean tweets, using profanity, and calling them names. Fuck everyone one of them. The only way to stop a bully is to stand up to them. It's the only thing that has ever worked.

So I hope AOC, Eric Swalwell, Beto, and the rest of our talented younger generation keeps on them. I hope they keep kicking ass, taking names, and making them look like the hypocritical idiots they are. I have total faith in Nancy Pelosi to get done what needs to get done. The bitch is fierce, and doesn't put up with bullshit. Chuck Schumer is dealing with that lying McConnell as best he can, but I'd like to see him pick up on some of Nancy's gutsiness.
