Filibustering! Fill a What?
Do you know that Senators speak for a long, long, long, long, long time in the United States Senate, to keep a law they don’t like from being passed? It’s true. This delaying tactic is called a filibuster, and it’s sometimes referred to as “talking a bill to death.” Indeed, one Senator, in 1957, filibustered for more than 24 hours straight!
And the rules of a filibuster get even stranger! The Senator who is filibustering doesn’t have to speak about the issue at hand. They can talk about whatever they want – including recipes, books and the price of rice in China!
Moshe Rabbeinu on the other hand, spoke a lot, but his speeches were nothing about the price of rice in China, and without a doubt a lot more important!
