Kavanaugh is going to get confirmed. Now what?

Post  Jehanne on Sat Oct 06, 2018 8:18 pm

I can't understand why the Republicans just did not ditch him and find themselves another right-wing nutjob without his baggage.  But, still, I think that he at least has the potential to have a change of heart, and perhaps, will be the next progressive SCOTUS judge??

Your thoughts?

No he has no shame. Like all men like that. He would actually feel he's been wronged.

What this proves as if we didn't know that women count for nothing in this regime. The me too movement has failed. It's open season on women again.

What's most sickening is that everyone knows he's guilty from the moron in the White House right down to the redneck in the boondocks. But they don't care politics comes first.

What has America become?

It is not about women or abortion or LGB...T rights with Kavanaugh.

He is the Federalist Society's pick because he will vote against taxes, regulations, voting laws - anything progressive. Oh, and he will vote to lessen women's and LGB...T rights, but that is simply icing on the right-wing's political cake and pay back for the Evangelical Right's support of this animal.

The GOP has sold its soul to money and the .1% of the 1% who are willing to throw them paltry amounts of political capital in exchange for massive support of their ongoing wealth. Think Koch, Mercers, Simmons, Adelson and hundreds of other families you have never heard of.

If the Government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it is all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag.

It is ironic that the American Founding Fathers established the federal Courts to protect the majority from tyrannizing the minority, but now it's the opposite, in that the minority is using SCOTUS to tyrannize the majority! We have the Electoral College to thank for that!!

The rending of the United States will not occur during my lifetime and even of the lifetimes of those of our youngest members.

I say five generations to the collapse of modern civilization - my wife, who is often more optimistic that I says three generations. By then my children, who both have chosen not to have children will have passed and there will no longer be a need for me to give a shit.

Whatever survives will at best be a plutocracy. Kavanaugh, and his ilk, are the kit that will be inadvertently used to destroy the U.S. I say inadvertently, because the 'base' that indirectly chose him have no idea of why Kavanaugh was ordained to control the masses.

Have a nice Sunday.

Mother nature, she's a woman, too, and she WILL have her day, and, it likely won't take 3 generations.

Those of us with the education can already see it happening. The process is already running. It's not a 'maybe' thing in a far-off future, nope, it started about 50 years or so ago.

The lack of trees, the lack of plankton, the lack of water, or if you are on the coast, being inundated by it, and the rising heat in our grain belts...... it all spells global death, indiscriminate death, impartial death, death.

The rich white will suffer and the coloured poor will suffer. The religious, and the atheist. The left and the right. You ain't going to have anywhere to hide.

Our world has become a place where we are all connected, intertwined, and socially and economically dependent. It won't matter if you are the elite or a schmuck. When human society goes down the drain, it won't much matter.

Oh and happy Thanksgiving eh (it's Thanksgiving in Canada, we don't have to wait until November like the Americans Smile ).

Do you really say, "eh" in Canada? Where I live (Iowa), I may have heard it a few times!

Yeah, they do. My wife has a friend from Alberta who, while she has been in The Bay Area for nearly 50 years still finishes off many of her sentences with 'eh'.

Yeah, I do it as much in print as in vocal usage.

When I write, I can occasionally have the word processor search it out and eliminate it Smile

My fingers seem to do it automatically.

I think that ending one's sentences with "eh" is cool! I tried doing it one time, deliberately while trying to keep a straight face, with one of my kiddo's school bus drivers; he looked at me a little funny, but other than that, we had a pleasant conversation!

I have to admit to never, ever using it ever, eh, but I don't think it's just Canadians that use it Anzacs and Brits do too In England it can mean many things depending on the tone of how it is said, kinda 'What did you say', 'I think that's stupid', 'What do you think of this/that' etc.
