Blue collar, kids, elderly, and jobs. No middle class taxes.

Biden’s pacing isn’t great and his speech lacks some of those applause moments.

Perhaps its time legal experts come up with a better, more accurate colloquial term that maybe better describes the nuances, complexities, and sometimes the dangerous trends some forms of free speech can lead to(like hate sperch, or libel/slander) than an old, fading descriptive rhetorical device that actually falls apart the more one analyzes and evaluates its logical drawbacks.

Let me put it this way: We all know we shouldn't yell fire in a crowded theater, whether it's illegal or not. We know it's to the benefit of public safety that we don't. The only people who would yell it are people who don't care whether it's illegal or not, or the sovereign citizen types who don't care what they're told.

Sure, but it's not really a valid example of a first amendment limitation. I would say if you want to explain what first amendment limitations are, then use valid examples.

republicans countered the 2 trillion infrastructure proposal with a 568 billion one
It excludes other big-ticket items in Biden's proposal, including explicit funding for electric vehicles, housing and home care

I get the argument for housing and home care as infrastructure, but I think those items live to fight another day in the family bill he's bringing up.

It's 2021, broadband internet should be as available as electricity, water, etc.

I also like how it's not ok to raise taxes on corporations, but it's just fine to charge fees to us common-folk. That part is just a joke.
