supreme court

I am so disgusted today by the circus of the Judiciary Committee Hearings regarding the allegations of Judge Kavenough sexually assaulting Dr. Ford. I know that this is an extremely complicated situation, but I wish the senate could have avoided these public hearings. Dr. Ford didn't want to testify and Judge Kavenough lamented that it couldn't be taken care of behind closed doors. The implications for these two by-standards and their families will follow them for years to come. How fair has this process really been to either of them? Of course the big question to answer is what happens tomorrow? And in the future will they investigate Dianne Feinstein for possibility leaking Dr. Ford's information to the press? She's an old crow and maybe this is how she'll go out with a bang. But of course the crowned jewel is what kind of investigation will follow? Will local police really investigate this case or will the FBI finally come sniffing around. Lastly where is Mark Judge? We learned nothing new from this and it all seems like a waste of people's time between the bumbling senators and flipping through old calendars and year books.

I'm not sure what other people think and I know that my opinion may be very different from others. So I just want to let people know I wrote this, because I am truly disgusted and I am not looking for a long debate.

    Ok, so how do you prove something like that? I mean, sounds like a he said she said. Things happen. Things happened when I was a kid. Creepy stuff. Not to me, but I knew about it. And people got away with it. And then you read about that woman... won a pullitzer for her study of false memory. When does that happen?! I don't know, but people went to prison, 300 of them, and then the DNA proved them innocent. So what do you know? You don't know. Anyway, that's what I think.

    I guess at least Dr. Ford got a chance to tell her story.

    There are no winners. But there are sleazy opportunists.
    You mentioned Feinstein, but the ones that got me were Booker and Harris. All those two care about is the path to the 2020 election. Dr. Ford was a useful instrument for them to bludgeon their opponents. I don't think any of them really give a rat's arse about Ford, Kavanagh or the justice process. All their care about is their political power.

    I would make a perfect Supreme Court nominee. I've never been in a fight or been aggressive toward a woman,
    but I've never been to college and I think that alone would disqualify me.
    I have done some cringeworthy things though. I just ate a handful of stale chocolate covered almond M&M's. They were awful.

    It's become so political now. It really is a kind of circus. Even the FBI report felt like it was just a kind of overture to appease the public. McConnell has the vote all lined up for tomorrow. I assume you probably vote along Republican lines? I tend to vote Democrat. There have been many examples of how bipartisan this has become when it should be about the Senate serving the American public by nominating a justice, who will serve impartially in a lifelong appointment.

    I have to say I agree with you about the opportunists.

    I stay away from politics and do not normally comment on anything related to it. However, I am disgusted, too, but perhaps for different reasons.
    The Supreme Court is the highest court in the country and deserves only the finest character in its judges and non-partisan approach to resolving constitutional dilemmas and divisions. It is, or should be, about interpreting laws that rise above all politics and political agenda and parties or individuals. It is a tough job, requiring great objective thinking, rationality, calmness in crisis, strength of personal character, ability to see beyond one's personal beliefs, and excellent judgement, among several other things.
    This appointment is for life and requires the most upstanding and honest character. Our country depends on it. Everyone of us. Not just those who voted Republican or those who voted Democrat or Independent. Every single one of us, man, woman and child.
    This appointment was a disaster as was the senate hearing. We will live to see its effects for generations to come.

    I try to stay away from politics as well, but it is hard to avoid feeling upset. It feels like a dark time right now in American politics. It's good right now to read European papers to expand ones political point of view. We go to the polls on Tuesday for mid-term elections, unless you have already voted. Even with all the get out to vote rallying, it still feels like- What's the point? You have to do more than vote, but educate yourself about what the candidates stand for.

    Neetu, I thought you were from another country. If you don't mind telling me, where do you live?

    Tina, I live in Pennsylvania, USA. It is very difficult not to feel upset. I worry about not just us, but also our children who live in such uncertain times, such a hostile and violent climate, such reckless disregard to the very fundamentals of human existence and dignity, and where all this taking them in the future. Do they even have a future? I don't know.
    I am originally from India but have lived in Europe for several years (Austria and England), in Canada, and for the past 23 years in the US.
    You can bet I will vote!
