Should a victim of sexual assault be told to come foward earlier?

I have made phone calls again this morning, to the offices of McConnell, Rand Paul and Grassley.

McConnell's Louisville office actually told me my time was up, because out-of-state callers were taking up "precious time."

Huh?

Does McConnell realize that for now, he is the Republican Senate Majority Leader for the UNITED STATES, not just KY?

My concern about Kavanaugh is his temperament. It is unbecoming a US Supreme Court Justice.

The angry, hostile, blame everybody else, especially liberals, "what do you like to drink, Senator," flippant attitude is inappropriate.

Keep fighting ladies and gentlemen.

While I appreciate your attempt at solving the mystery the reasons you state are not the reasons either, and it does matter.

Here again is your original post to me (in italics):

"What crawls?

What crawls out of the woodwork beyond cockroaches, ants, rodents, and other pests?

It is difficult to believe that you were/are completely unaware of the derogatory nature of that phrase.

Perhaps some cultural sensitivity training might help you to appreciate the negative nature of your word choice."

I can't understand why you felt the need to write such a snarky post at all but especially after I had already made a post prior (to the poster that I was referring to, which you knew was not you) clarifying and apologizing, stating I meant no ill will toward that poster.

Since you didn't like my explanation (to you after your post) as to why you would write such a post please feel free to explain and give your reason.

And, it is funny what you say about conservatives blindly accepting propaganda, statements being scripted etc., because that is exactly how conservatives feel about Democrats/liberals.

That is why we should all want to keep the door of communication open, to further positive conversation and sharing of ideas, that is how issues/problems/differences get solved.

Yeah, it's clear that conservatives only want to encourage communication and get to the truth based upon mini rants like yours and the behavior of Republican Senators.. It isn't at all clear from the actions and words of their preferred and elected leadership, but that's how things differ inside versus outside of the propaganda bubble.

For the record, I don't write my thoughts to gain your approval and I really don't care if you try to understand my reasoning or not. I'm not trying to convince you of anything. Perhaps you should spend less time worrying about why I post my opinions and more time worrying about the content of your own.

The Senate Should Not Confirm Kavanaugh

Signed, 1,700+ Law Professors

... Instead of being open to the necessary search for accuracy, Judge Kavanaugh was repeatedly aggressive with questioners.

Even in his prepared remarks, Judge Kavanaugh described the hearing as partisan, referring to it as "a calculated and orchestrated political hit," rather than acknowledging the need for the Senate, faced with new information, to try to understand what had transpired. Instead of trying to sort out with reason and care the allegations that were raised, Judge Kavanaugh responded in an intemperate, inflammatory and partial manner, as he interrupted and, at times, was discourteous to senators.

As you know, under two statutes governing bias and recusal, judges must step aside if they are at risk of being perceived as or of being unfair...

... We have differing views about the other qualifications of Judge Kavanaugh. But we are united, as professors of law and scholars of judicial institutions, in believing that he did not display the impartiality and judicial temperament requisite to sit on the highest court of our land...

Opinion | The Senate Should Not Confirm Kavanaugh. Signed, 1,7

Some of the Greatest Justices Were Nasty and Partisan, Actually

The temperament argument, at least when taken in isolation, is not convincing.

It's not that Kavanaugh's manner and tactics at the hearing last week seemed normal or acceptable. I was genuinely astonished, especially when he went after Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar, asking her repeatedly if she had ever blacked out from drinking...

... Rather, what I find doubtful about the temperament argument is that several of the greatest Supreme Court justices had disastrously bad, highly unjudicial temperaments. Collectively and individually, Justices Hugo Black, Robert Jackson, William O. Douglas and Felix Frankfurter were nasty, vindictive, backbiting, ambitious and partisan...

... In principle, for the temperament argument against him to stand on its own, someone should be able to say that she would support Kavanaugh if only he had behaved differently at his confirmation hearing - even if the substance of his answers was the same as the ones he gave. That's the argument I'm addressing...

Bloomberg - Are you a robot?

Aren't judges supposed to be impartial?

Clearly, Kavanaugh is not.

The man doesn't have to an alter boy, but he came across as a raging lunatic.

I don't believe raging lunatics and liars belong on the US Supreme Court.

Quite frankly, I was surprised he didn't blame his dilemma on "the Deep State," you know, the fairy tale land that the rabid right is always yakking about.

He came close though, blaming the Clintons.

Some of our past presidents and senators were openly racist too, that doesn't mean that we should continue that trend or history.

I know how Professor Ford is feeling now, something similar happened to me 3 years ago. I reported mine early, at first everyone was saying how they believed me, then a few weeks later they were calling me a liar . After that incident I decided that it's best not to tell anyone, because you're automatically a liar in everyone's mind.

I don't trust anyone to help me, or even care,and they all determined that I was a liar because I didn't tell my female friend, but I told my sexual assault counselor.

Retired US Supreme Court Justice Stevens now says Kavanaugh should not be seated on Court after last week's performance.

Guess I'm not the only one who saw him as an out-of-control lunatic.

If you haven't seen it yet, check out the YouTube video of young TX woman making fun of Trump and Company, and their ridiculous notion that it is 'A Scary Time For Men.'

It is great!

If it's the one I think it is is, I posted it in the Art and Music thread.

Yes, that's the one!
