This is the trash that the Republican Party scrapes up to be a Supreme Court Justice. In the United States of America. In 2018. Very impressive.

Yeah. 🙂 I think the least you could do is take the hour or so to hear out the accuser before the vote; you know, the vote to decide who’s going to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States of America for life.🖕

During the bitter primary campaign, he sought to cast Raimondo as a “Republican in disguise”.

“It’s time to change what it means to be a Democrat in 2018,” Brown said in a campaign ad.

My condolences, Rhode Island. 😔 I’m sorry you failed to recognize the opportunity you had to take a small step in the correct direction.

Crazy? Stupid? Both?? The answer is, who cares! The only important point to keep in mind is we have a seriously defective electoral/educational/economic system in this country that allowed this foolish imbecile and his ilk to rise to power at all. We must address this at its root or else all is lost. It might not happen today, it might not happen tomorrow, but it will happen. Maybe it will be a very slow, painful miserable deterioration, or maybe it will be an explosive, dramatic, exciting explosion, but it will happen. And it is utterly preventable. All we need to do is wake up, open our eyes, and do what we all know needs to be done: stand up for what is right, do the right thing even though it is not what is commonly done, and persist in seeking truth. Because truth is our only salvation. End of story.

Jerry Brown’s Climate Legacy Is Still Being Decided | The Nation

The steps that first-generation leaders like Brown have taken are too small to meet the demands of the moment. Yes, Brown is standing up to President Trump, and yes, he’s done more than other governors have. But when it comes to climate change, it’s physics that we must measure ourselves against—and by that standard, we’re losing.

Missing the point

It seems like to most Americans the only relevant question is which one of these sides is the winner, or should be the winner, or was the winner. In actuality that question is practically irrelevant. A more relevant question would be how did we end up like this? How did we come to accept a public forum where incongruities such as these are tolerated and allowed to exist at all?
