Crumbling US senate echoes Roman collapse


In failing to hear witnesses in the trial of Donald Trump, the Senate joins other historic bodies that paved the way for despotism.



Don’t be glum, chum. It isn’t as if the United States Senate is the first legislative body to dissolve into an impotent puddle at the feet of a domineering leader. History’s full of ’em. The most glaring example, alas, is the senate in the ancient Roman Republic.
If it’s been a while since you reached for your Edward Gibbon, save yourself the back strain. I’ve spent the weekend thumbing through “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,” and, buddy, as bad as the news is today, by consulting history we are reminded that it can get worse.
Much worse.
Gibbon starts off his epic — some 4,000 pages — of decline with the first emperor; Julius Caesar’s nephew Octavian, who renamed himself “Augustus” and, like a certain president we all know, swept aside governmental norms to gather power to himself.
“Every barrier of the Roman constitution had been leveled by the vast ambition of the dictator,” Gibbon writes. He had help, particularly in rural areas.
”The provinces, long oppressed by the ministers of the republic, sighed for the government of a single person, who would be the master, not the accomplice, of those petty tyrants,” Gibbon writes. “The people of Rome, viewing with secret pleasure the humiliation of the aristocracy, demanded only bread and public shows.”

Ted Cruz Goes Ballistic After Lawmaker Suggests Regulating Men’s Reproductive Rights




Clueless Hypocrite: Pro-Life (Forced-Birth) Senator Ted Cruz is outraged that a lawmaker has proposed legislation that would regulate a man’s reproductive rights.
The Hill reports:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took aim at legislation recently introduced in Alabama by a state representative that would, if passed, make it mandatory for certain men to get vasectomies — a bill that comes in response to legislation passed last year that seeks to ban abortion in the state.
TPM reports:
A law requiring vasectomies? Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) will not stand for this blatant violation of a (male) person’s bodily autonomy!
In response to a new law proposed in Alabama that would force all men to get vasectomies once they reach age 50, or father three children, “whichever comes first,” a clueless Cruz tweeted:
Yikes. A government big enough to give you everything is big enough to take everything…literally!

I saw this earlier. Cruz us pretty dim.

I liked this response form Twitter user Steve Redmond:

Internet bursts into laughter as Ted Cruz freaks out over vasectomy bill. The irony is that Cruz doesn't need to worry, since Trump castrated Cruz a long time ago.

Oh, so true!

lol Too bad Trump didn't think of lobotomizing him, too. But maybe we wouldn't even notice a difference if he did.
