There's another protest on April 15th here in the US.

Release your taxes you asshole!

I will be amongst the demonstrators in London if this happens.

Republicans are in full control of everything from governor's seats to state legislatures to the congress and soon the courts with 104 federal court appointments to fill.

All this means is that you don't fully understand the mechanics of your own government. Sad really. There are currently 33 Republican governors and 16 Democrat governors, plus one independent—hardly "full" control LOL.

And Republican v. Democrat numbers in Senate; 52-48, and Republican v. Democrat in House of Reps; 241-194. Again, hardly overwhelming control.

BTW, I took it that there were only 94 court judges; one in each Federal district. Is your 104 figure correct?
It's not, LDH is talking out of his ass again. Yes there are 94 Federal District Courts, but they tend to have more than one judge on them, and there are 13 appellate courts at the federal level, not counting the U.S. Supreme Court. There are in fact 860 Article III (of the Constitution) Federal judgeships as of 2015 and 20 Article I Federal judgeships. And before LDH claims that link isn't right and doesn't bother to click it, it's from the official government website of the United States court system.

Now before LDH goes, "But I meant vacant positions that need to be filled, stupid liberals", that would be 114 open judgeships, for which the President has nominated zero people (who under Article III of the Constitution, must be approved by the U.S. Senate and are appointed for lifetime terms or until retirement).

Need to think of a witty signature.

Get used it, embrace it, deal with it, or leave.

Yes it's obvious what I meant. There are 114 vacant spots. I wrote 104 but meant 114.

Why? Because Obama did it that way? Not all presidents did it the Obama way.

They're going back to the days when members came to a meeting when they were needed on a specific subject. So that they don't have to sit on every single meeting repeatedly. This is streamlining and keeps them free to actually be at their job not in pointless meetings.
