    That's what I think is ridiculous personally.

    Since you appear to be too lazy today to even read the FIRST PAGE let me help you without causing you too much strain, as I'm sure it would be difficult.

    ....

    That should give you a good indication of where to begin the conversation, as you're not worth rehashing things already talked about over 4 days ago with a far more reasonable poster
    Lemme get this straight -- YOU don't read the full article before starting the thread and that's OKAY.

    But if I call you out on it before reading for the full thread, then shame on me...???

    Oh, the irony of self-righteous-foot-in-mouth disease. It gives the rest of us a chance to double dip on ridiculing your mistake...

    And in all your backpeddling and spinning of your OP throughout the thread, you're still trying to put words in Schumer's mouth...

    Go back and read your own article:

    "As chairman of the Senate Rules Committee, which is the committee with jurisdiction over these issues, I'm announcing that we will hold hearings on the impact of this decision within the next of couple of weeks," Schumer said.

    Really?

    PURPOSE AND JURISDICTION

    (Taken from the Standing Rules of the Senate: Rule 25.1.n)

    (1) Committee on Rules and Administration, to which committee shall be referred all proposed legislation, messages, petitions, memorials, and other matters relating to the following subjects:

    (A) Administration of the Senate Office Buildings and the Senate wing of the Capitol, including the assignment of office space.

    (B) Congressional organization relative to rules and procedures, and Senate rules and regulations, including floor and gallery rules.

    (C) Corrupt practices.

    (D) Credentials and qualifications of Members of the Senate, contested elections, and acceptance of incompatible offices.

    (E) Federal elections generally, including the election of the President, Vice President, and Members of the Congress
    .

    And...

    (2) Such committee shall also -

    (A) make a continuing study of the organization and operation of the Congress of the United States and shall recommend improvements in such organization and operation with a view toward strengthening the Congress, simplifying its operations, improving its relationships with other branches of the United States Government, and enabling it better to meet its responsibilities under the Constitution of the United States; and

    (B) identify any court proceeding or action which, in the opinion of the Committee, is of vital interest to the Congress as a constitutionally established institution of the Federal Government and call such proceeding or action to the attention of the Senate.
    ...
    Did you want to further articulate why Schumer's committee shouldn't hold hearings on the impact of the decision?

    I mean, with FEC oversight and all...

    Re: Schumer calls for hearings on 'un-American' court decision

    Hmm, a wonderful point. I was taking their perview over elections was the generalized rules regarding it and contesting of it and was thinking of this, as the Supreme Court cached it, as a speech issue first and foremost more than an election issue. That said, addressing the ramifications of the situation as it comes to elections seems to be loosely connected to the committee. Well done, you've shown me wrong and I admit my mistake.

    Amazingly enough, this could've happened much sooner and interesting discussion could've happened if you had acted as a mature debator from the start and hadn't swung in with you worthless sarcasm and immediete jerkish attitude towards the situation and tried to participate in the discussion members were
    having instead of acting like a child who wanted everyone in the rooms eyes to be on them.

    Let me also say to aps and Redress, who acted as mature debaters, I was in error in my initial reading and understanding of the committee's abilities. While I still disagree with you redress in regards to speech, you are correct in this is not a case of schumer attempting to intimidate or interfere in a court decision.

    The supreme court treated it as a free speech issue. That's true. That's almost as bad as roe v wade which claimed that abortion is a right to "privacy" under the 14th amendment.

    The first one is a ruling making bribery legal. The second one is making killing babies legal.

    Conservatives used to whine about Judicial activism. When it suits their purpose they are all for it.

    Another chip in the constitution.

    Nah, I think if this isn't fixed, we are more headed towards a world like a bad cyberpunk novel.

    What you did not say reflects your conservative bias. You did not comment on killing babies.
