So, when the Democratic minority threatened a filibuster against something of importance, like the lifetime appointment of a candidate they found objectionable, that’s an unprecedented abuse of procedural rules and the minority should just shut up and color, straight up-or-down vote time. When the Republican minority filibusters a non-binding resolution with as much importance as declaring today National Chocolate Day, it’s perfectly reasonable, even though it ends with the sponsor of the bill voting against it? Seriously, flip flop?
 This word, I do not think it means what you think it means.
 Not threatens, actually blocks a vote.
