To all those unhappy about Kavanaugh being confirmed to the Supreme Court; but, couldn't be bothered to get out and vote in elections:

I expect an up-tick in voter participation, but who knows low unemployment = "...fat, dumb, and happy..."

The people who care are voters.

Rapist Americans: didn't Cheech & Chong do a diddy ' bout them?

Rapist Americans
climb into your window
tie you to the bed, poke and prod you, 1,2,3

Rapist Americans
lock the door behind them
get you on the desktop, do the hokey pokey, wow-wow-wee

Rapist Americans
will let you keep your job now
if you lick upon their member, do a good one, get a buck, fiftee

Rapist Americans
pretend to be policemen
stop you at the red light, it gets quite messy, as you'll see

So, 64% of dem women, and 60% of dem men, believe allegation 'is' evidence?

I blame the schools.

Or, does the chart show how bias skews opinion, illustrating the need for evidence?

I still blame the schools.

It is very hard to know many things. When it is hard, we save time by "outsourcing" the work of figuring out the truth. Sometimes to friends, sometimes to media, sometimes to the tribe.

in context, no, it ain't 'hard to know': evidence is everything

In context: there is no gray.

He did, or he didn't.

Where's the goddamned beef?


Friends, media, tribe: folks in the same boat as you, with access to the same things you have access to (no more or less), just as limited as you in assessing anything.

Rely on them sparingly.

If we're gonna make 2 million comments we all need to up our game.

I have some respect for the Supreme Court at least compared to the other branches because their thinking is on paper and even when you disagree you can follow it if you have the inclination. I'm going to have some trouble buying into this guy on the court but at least henry is finally represented.

May you live in interesting times.

This may come before the court...

Do you think people who can vote; but, don't vote don't care about that? Wouldn't that make them some kind of monsters?

"but at least henry is finally represented."

Really?

How?

Cuz Kav is a conservative repub?

I'm not either of those.

Cuz he's (supposed to be) a Rapist American?

I'm not one of those.

So, tell me: how am I finally represented?

You know, the usual go-to groups.

But, really, it's only 'too bad' for the commies.

I'm not impressed with Kav, but at least he's not a commie.

Ruthie is next.

Trump should replace RBG with a woman, a non-commie woman, a hot, piece-of-ass woman. If she were Mexican, that'd be kick ass. A non-commie, Mexican hottie who immigrated legally.

What a 'fuck you' that would be.

no, mostly I poked the in-thread pussies with a sharp stick

But, you know what?

Even if he is a Rapist American, he's still a damned-sight better than any commie currently on the court.

So, okay, I 'own' it.

And -- just to be a dick about it -- I'm gonna crow LOUD when Ruthie strokes out (DIE, YOU OLD CRONE, DIE!) and TRUMPET when another repub con gets seated, and I'll keep doin' that clear through to the end of Trump's second term (cuz you know he's gonna have one [gives you the warm fuzzies, I know]).

That's right, ladies! Get them wire hangers ready! R v. W is history!

Gay folks? The closet is callin'!

Blacks? We've saved your place in dem good ol' cotton and tobacco fields!

Own it? I'll own it.

How you like them apples, Griff?
