The death of an entire species is called extinction but I call it a mega mortality. We belong to a short lived species. Unlike turtles we will most likely not hang around for millions of years.

Mortality is a major player. Kavanaugh is of an age where he is not assured statistically of making it to sixty. The older you get the better your longevity odds become. So let me be the first to say
so long Bret, you have been interesting
you mean arrogant jock.

I'm all curiosity and zero ambition, which would make me a mere neuron in the cosmic forebrain near the amygdala. I would need a staff of billions of other cells to become a President with enough omniscience and planning to devise a progressive government to take us to the stars and create a planet we do not damage beyond repair everyday.

But that's me. How much imagination and love does Kavanaugh have to make informed judgments for the good. What is the good he is likely to seek?

Honestly I am considering that I am the polar opposite of Donald Trump which would make me as terrible a President in reverse. I am a bit surprised we are the same species. To simplify this notion I will choose only two parameters and explore them in detail. Those two things will be Competitiveness/ambition and Imagination/curiosity.

Curiosity; It is part of our nature to love, learn and be honest. It is part of our nature to long to know more and continue to learn more.
(You can already see the difference between Twittler and me)
We are peering inside mysteries and are reporting unintuitive revelations. On the beach of the ocean of the unknown I know the probability of how little we know. What I do know would only depress many of you and be breathtakingly beautiful to the rest.

Ambition: I haven't got a speck of it relative to Tonald Drunk. Sure I have biological inertia and self preservation instincts but I have never gone to the lengths of an average athlete to train to win an event. At least I don't think so.

So Trump was born with 100 times too much competitiveness and ZERO curiosity.
I am the anti Trunk. I'm all curiosity and zero ambition,

I don't claim to be anything but I have no problem with liberalism -
You on the other hand use the term as an insult and have thrown your hat in the ring for an unstable maniac intent on destroying what remains of American democracy and replacing it with a hate driven regime
He is a stated misogynist, a racist who draws his support from scum like the Klan and is making the G'old US a laughing stock
In all the years I have never experienced a President capable of provoking such contempt and fear - I doubt if anybody has
I certainly have never seen a world leader laughed at by other world politicians - nor have I known one who has been forced to cancel state visits for fear of the reception he is likely to get

My son was dismissed from kindegarten because his pediatrician could not verify his vaccine record because of their hard drive crash.

I am probably on a discretionary watch list which is something I did not know existed. It involved 2 different agents questioning me and a sky marshall with canine escort on the plane. I was fine with it. I learned that those guys are so overworked they are wearing yesterday's clothes. The guy in the tired suit only said out of the blue "don't be stupid".   
If I was not with my family it may have turned out differently.

Never tell the truth about having a headache. It may be a no fly factor. If asked how you are, you are always fine and dandy.

I am of a consciousness beyond simple offense but Bruce is a microcosm of the large number of the 'literal' flatland people who are somewhat similar to a hypnotised subject acting out post hypnotic suggestions.
He has value as a person and a teaching example.

The feeling of becoming larger than yourself by repeating fox news spin served up on a platter is enticeing for those who need it.

So I lied, in that I suppose I do understand his conservatism* and I may have been mean for even engaging Bruce but communication is better than violence.

*Olde timey conservatism is of course something quite different.

Mr. Block?

A Blast From The Past that is especially germane in the world of Trump and Bruce:

Song: Mister Block
Lyrics: Joe Hill

Music: To the tune of, "It Looks to Me Like a Big Time Tonight"

Please give me your attention, I'll introduce to you
A man that is a credit to "Our Red, White and Blue";
His head is made of lumber, and solid as a rock;
He is a common worker and his name is Mr. Block.
And Block he thinks he may
Be President some day.

(CHORUS:)
Oh, Mr. Block, you were born by mistake,
You take the cake,
You make me ache.
Tie on a rock to your block and then jump in the lake,
Kindly do that for Liberty's sake.

Yes, Mr. Block is lucky; he found a job, by gee!
The sharks got seven dollars, for job and fare and fee.
They shipped him to a desert and dumped him with his truck,
But when he tried to find his job, he sure was out of luck.
He shouted, "That's too raw, I'll fix them with the law."
This song was originally posted on protestsonglyrics.net
(CHORUS)

Block hiked back to the city, but wasn't doing well.
He said, I'll join the union, the great A. F. of L."
He got a job next morning, got fired in the night,
He said, "I'll see Sam Gompers and he'll fix that foreman right."
Sam Gompers said, "You see,
You've got our sympathy."

(CHORUS)

Election day he shouted, "A Socialist for Mayor!"
The "comrade" got elected, he happy was for fair,
But after the election he got an awful shock.
A great big socialistic Bull did rap him on the block.
And Comrade Block did sob,
"I helped him to his job."
This song was originally posted on protestsonglyrics.net
(CHORUS)

Poor Block, he died one evening, I'm very glad to state;
He climbed the golden ladder up to the pearly gate.
He said, "Oh, Mr. Peter, one word I'd like to tell,
I'd like to meet the Astorbilts and John D. Rockefell."
Old Pete said, "Is that so?
You'll meet them down below."

(CHORUS)

Let's say that a candidate for high position/ office led an active life in their youth and was heedless at times. They may have regrets which they expiated by going forth in a positive, productive life. Then at some time, on the threshold of a major satisfying peak in that life, someone comes up with just enough of an accurate memory to remind them and the whole world of a past misdeed. . .

Two stories:

1) I read in a book of Jewish Tales how just after death our souls are put on trial. There is an accusing angel and a defense angel. A great philanthropist is on the seat of justice. All looks good, and then the accuser brings to testify a fly.
"What is your story, fly?"
"He swatted me for no reason!"

2) Lisa Simpson is daydreaming, in the future she is about to be sworn in as President of the United States of America. Just as the chief justice is about to swear her in, a newsman bring in the news that "Lisa Simpson received an F in second grade gym class!" The Chief Justice says: "In that case, I sentence you to live a lifetime of horror on Monster Island!" and then in an aside to Lisa: "Don't worry, it's just a name!" In the next scene she is being chased by fire breathing monsters, "But it was just a name!" The man running next to her says, "What he meant is that Monster Island is actually a peninsula!"

Yes, both Clinton and Kavanaugh appear to have committed shameful sexual crimes, but you seem to be confusing criminal prosecution with confirmation to the Supreme Court. In the Kavanaugh case, it's not a matter of "beyond a reasonable doubt." If a majority of senators vote against him, he doesn't get the job. There's no due process, and there shouldn't be."

And he got the majority of the votes, and the job. End of story.

"It is unlikely that Congress has the power to impeach a sitting justice for alleged offenses he may or may not have committed while a private citizen and a teenager. It would be the first time in American history any impeachment went back that far and focused on such adolescent conduct.

Democrats may try to move it forward by alleging that the grounds for impeachment include perjury committed by nominee Kavanaugh in his testimony at his Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing. Before his Supreme Court confirmation Kavanaugh was a sitting judge on the U.S. Circuit of Appeals for the District of Columbia subject to the impeachment power of Congress.

But that would be a ploy, somewhat akin to the phony perjury grounds used to impeach President Clinton. Democrats were outraged when Republicans used perjury as a surrogate for sexual improprieties. They should be similarly outraged if their colleagues seek to use perjury as a pretext for religitating old charges of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh."

I have hesitated to discuss a secret hidden in plain political sight.
The politicians who win the PRESIDENCY are the funniest.

You can call it wit or crude entertainment but in every example of a President in my modern media life, it is the most amusing one that wins by hook or crook.

I can think of no one less amusing than Hillary and Trump is, sad to say, funny. Are people willing to choose amusement over substantive issues? I think so.

It is surely unprecedented for an American President to have maligned the witness while the enquiry was going on is surely prejudicial to the outcome and would be totally illegal in a British court - as the imprisonment of Tommy Robinson showed

While you are all so well informed bear in mind a defeat of the good ol boys will require a two to one vote against boys like Cruz to overcome the deformed voting rights act, Russian attacks, voter suppresion and gerrymandering designed by republicans.
Even then it will be close.

T minus 4 weeks.

The proceedings were hearings, it wasn't a trial, but another feature of Kavanaugh's testimony is that he allegedly lied to congress. Aspects of his testimony are in dispute, including the charge of sexual assault, but also his drinking and how he glossed over or mis-represented the extent of it. There has been only one impeachment in the Supreme Court in US history and it didn't pass, but others have stepped down from office or excused themselves from consideration.

The senator from Texas is Ted Cruz. Be sure to vote him out of office on November 6.

Good gawd, I'm talking about the false meme being spoon fed to to the truly faithful that the Kavavanaugh hubbub was about a youthful dalliance with beer. Maybe it didn't cross the Atlantic.
I'm an optimist regarding trump, I see the orange jumpsuit as half-full.

I am one hundred percent opposed to Trump and one hundred percent opposed to this appointment (even though it's none of my business). But this is about ALLEGED sexual assault. Until he's convicted, which I hope but doubt he will be, opposing him on the strength of your beliefs apropos of the accusations against him is not good enough. Attack him for his extreme partisanship, his lack of integrity, his misogyny and his shameless ambition in pursuing this post. He should have withdrawn and he didn't. That's what a man in his position with that the shadow over him should have done. And go after him fearlessly for the sexual assault. You won't get rid of him any other way. Good luck with that. The big guns are against you, but you have/had ammunition in other respects too.

Two repercussions on the appointment
Democrats are using the unpopularity of the decision to launch a campaign against Trump
Republicans are now demanding a change in American's abortion laws

My point about SEXUAL ASSAULT was that those promoting Kavanaugh were pushing the notion that the only mark against him was youthful indiscretions brought on by his first encounters with adult beverages (aaah, but didn't we all go through that?) and at least one person on this site is parroting that misconception.. It was about SEXUAL ASSAULT.

Or, it could be the first step towards his comeuppance. This "Victory", putting a suspected sex offender on the SCOTUS, may play well w/ his rock solid 30-35% but it's won at the expense of alienating and energizing even more women voters which in the mid-terms could result in a House that will be happy to look into all his administration's ethical misbehavior and his own corrupt dealings. In fact, now that this Kavanaugh thing seems to be a done deal the media can focus on the story the NY Times ran last week regarding all the tax fraud committed by the trump family.
