    All the union killing sh-t should be cleaned out. And all the vote suppression.

    The problem with the GOP vote suppression is short of actually ending democracy they have to win every time to keep all their cheating in place. Whereas we have to win once to clear it all away.

    At some point the GOP courts will step in and try to declare that our leg can't undo what their legs did. The Supremes as constituted won't help. But we should force that showdown, especially since the good showing this time means the Go Back To Sleep wing of the Democrats (spoiler: the Centrists) will immediately begin their "it's not so bad, let's try to work with them" nonsense.

      The lame reboot scuttles about in the shadows and is embarrassed to be called what they are. And they dress like sh-t compared to Hugo Boss, too.

        The voter suppression has basically been cleaned out by the voters themselves anyway. They got the independent redistricting which allowed these results to even be possible. Last night a new voting rights proposal just passed that will open up a lot more access for voting.

        The Dems have the governorship, the senate, the house, the AG, the SOS, and the SC. January 1st the clock starts on a two year sprint to pass whatever’s been held back for the last four decades.

        • Walz said if he won he would fight for full legal weed and amnesty on past charges in line with Biden. With a Dem Leg he can also fix education finally which just might save education here!

            We'll see:

            @TheoKeith ? 17h
            Senate Democrats say they’ll give hearings to issues the GOP majority didn’t support. Legalizing marijuana is among them. But they’re not committing to passing a pot bill. With a 34-33 majority, every member is needed.

              We'll see if this holds up based on legislative action over the next couple of years, but right now I feel like Michigan Dems are Theoden being awakened by Gandalf and telling the Wormtongue GQP to pack its shit and slouch back to Mordor (represented by Ohio, obviously).

                      Not yet. It's so close it may have to go to a recount.

                      • Blurgh. There was too much cheering and gloating about it on Twitter. I knew it wasn't going to happen.

                        • So Bar Harbor citizens have voted to restrict cruise visitors to 1000/day. Which is really small- a handful of specialized cruise companies.

                          Good for them. While I will miss going there again, I respect the reply to the major problems that cruise ship passengers bring for their shor time there. The amusing thing is that some cruisers are taking this really hard- they pretend that their money should overrule the vote and so many jobs are on the line. But when presented with a really hard but profitable job- they will decline that job- which is exactly the same thing.

                          Bar Harbor can focus on the real visitors that are spending multiple days at their national park. And I bet once the real visitors figure out that the crowd is a lot smaller, they will end up spending more money overall.

                            More small ports need to do this, even if it forces the mega cruise lines out altogether. In addition to cutting down on crowds for locals and visitors who are committed to staying several days, boutique cruise lines with smaller boats are usually more expensive/luxurious and attract a more monied clientele. If I were the owner of an artisan shop, women's boutique, or upscale restaurant I'd rather have one of Crystal or Windstar's smaller boats come in with several hundred DINKs than have an NCL megaboat dump 4,000 Ma & Pa Kettles in for a day.

                                There are not many small ports that have a second source of income like Bar Harbor does. Like most of the Alaska ports have no real road traffic for a source of tourist dollars, so they need ships to bring some money in.
