    Mike Lee to Filibuster Naysayers: ‘I Don’t Care What They Call It’
    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/09/24/Mike-Lee-to-Filibuster-Naysayers-I-Don-t-Care-What-Anybody-Calls-It

    Lee responded to Reid’s remarks, telling Breitbart News, “If they want to get really technical about it, they can call it whatever they want. They can call it a lengthy speech. They can call it a hot fudge sundae. I don’t care what they call it.”

    Cruz’s filibuster may be ending at noon, when the legislative day officially starts, unless Dingy Harry and the majority will allow him to continue.

  6. Shalini pointed this out last night.

    Today there are people walking around on it.

  7. freedom1781 says:

    Cruz was forced to finish his filibuster; he spoke for over 21 hours.

    • barnslayer says:

      I thought the filibuster was allowed to continue until the speaker (Cruz) called it quits. Kinda defeats the purpose if they can tell you to stop.

      • When Democrats are enforcing the rules, it doesn’t much matter what the rules are. They just get their way. When Republicans are in charge, suddenly, the rules are very important. And the Democrats get their way.

  8. freedom1781 says:

    Cruz will be on Rush Limbaugh’s show today at 1 pm.

    Adolescence lasts to age 25???? This would have never flown with Tex Sr. I’ll have to ask him to reimburse me for those three years after college. 🙄

    Hey Grunt,
    Tonight’s our 2nd Gubernatorial Debate between Cuccinelli and McAsshole. Chuck Todd is the moderator so I’m not expecting any gotcha questions for McA’hole, just the usual liberal bias crap. If you hear screaming and a loud crashing noise coming from the east, it’s me yelling and throwing a chair at the t.v.!

    • Do you have any old tube-style TV sets? Maybe you could lay down some plastic on the carpet to catch the glass, have DD restricted to the bedroom and watch it in the basement with DH with a shotgun loaded with some birdshot. You and DH would have to wear really good eye protection, of course. Whenever they piss you off, let ’em have it with the shotgun from across the room. On second thought. Maybe you should use a .22 with short ammo. That’s quiet enough to keep the neighbors from… Maybe you should just not take any advice from me. Just stick with the chair. 😀

      • freedom1781 says:

        The debate was at 7 p.m. so by the time I got home, cooked dinner, helped DD with homework and got her to bed, it was over. I had to watch a replay on C-SPAN…at work… I really had to keep myself from yelling “bulls**t out loud every time McA said something so false and stupid, which was the majority of time. Neither Cuccinelli nor McA’hole gave a knockout performance. I was disappointed that Cuccinelli didn’t refute some of the false claims from McA. He did keep his cool the whole time while McA sounded like a screeching woman–that’s just my opinion. 😉
