About Me

I've been a member of DU since the very beginning....after that horrible fiasco - the sElection of 2000. My first user name was Lindsey, then I changed it to Nirvana555, and now it's Upthevibe. I had devices crash and I ended up having to change my user name. I've never been one to make a whole lot of original posts, but I consider myself a very active member in that I come to DU almost every day and read the wonderfully informative threads. I can't imagine what life would have been like over the past two decades without DU!

OMG! I just read this article from The Federalist about wives submitting to her husbands...

RE: Amy Conan Barrett....

How Strong Women Like Amy Coney Barrett Submit To Their Husbands With Joy

I just heard on CNN's Fredricka Whitfield that because three of the Republicans

tested positive for COVID19, McConnell is asking for an agreement to pushback floor activity for two weeks until Oct. 19 - a pause in legislative business on the senate floor. In order to get that agreement he needs to get the top Democrat - Chuck Schumer - to sign off on it. In order to get her out of committee, Tillis and Lee would need to be actually present. Without them there, if Dems. decide not to show up for the vote that puts her getting out of the committee in jeopardy because they need an actual quorum. They need a vote with at least more than 1/2 of the members on the committee to be present. Lauren Fox - Congressional Reporter.

I don't have a thread. This was just on Fredricka Whitfield's show. I was pausing and typing as I heard it.....

If Senator Lee tested positive and he met with Amy Coney-Barrett on Tuesday....

doesn't that mean she needs to quarantine for 14 days?

Hey again Georgia residents and others in the know....

I heard a summary on NPR yesterday about Kelly Loeffler's crimes. Wow....What a disgrace she is....


I'm seeing in recent polls that Raphael Warnock has pulled ahead. I found out on DU (when I asked another question about Georgia) that this year in Georgia there's a special election and a jungle election.

My question is this: Have there been a significant number of commercials in the state for Warnock as well as anything giving bullet points (or whatever they call it these days) about Loeffler's corrupt history?

Thanks to anyone to can give me some feedback.

(I also posted this in General Discussion).

I've been trying to get a factual answer

on this question:

If The House were to start impeachment proceedings on say Bill Barr (or a President) there's some kind of rule in The Senate that currently exists that the calendar has to be cleared and impeachment would take precedent thereby delaying a Supreme Court nominee. I then read/heard that McConnell could simply sign paperwork that would eliminate that rule.

Do any of my fellow DU'ers have any definitive information on this scenario?

Thank you for your input....

I just saw that Romney is for the vote.....

I just saw it on a PBS posting.....

I enjoyed the CRAP out of the Emmy's tonight!

And before anyone says this post is out of place, it was as political as I've ever seen, and I frickin' LOVED it. The best part was the last acceptance speech by the creator/producer for the Best Drama show, Succession (For those who haven't seen this show, it's about a family of billionaires -the father, step-mother, and his adult kids) who are so f'upped it's disgusting. My understanding is it's tailored after the Murdoch's. Here's was the creator/producer said:

"For being robbed of the opportunity to spend this time with our peers and with our cast and crew, I think I'd like to do a few 'unthank yous': Unthank you to the virus for keeping us apart this year, unthank you to President Trump (personally I NEVER refer to him in that manner but I want to get what he said word for word) for his crummy and uncoordinated response, unthank you to all the nationalist and quasi-nationalist governments in the world who are doing exactly the opposite of what we need right now, and unthank you to all the media moguls who do so much to keep them in power - so unthank you."

Georgia residents (or others in the know)...

I'm trying to figure out who the Senate candidates are and what are the current polling numbers....

This is what I need clarity on:

Raphael Warnock (D) Vrs. Kelly Loeffler (R) ?

Jon Ossoff (D) Vrs. David Perdue (R) ?

Are there two seats in the running at the same time? Do I have the correct candidates? If so, does anyone know what the poll numbers are in these races? I've googled and am getting conflicting information.

Thanks for your help (I've also posted in General Discussion).
