    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    Like the NC 12th district? Guess both parties have been in office for a multitude of years and you complain about it now? And, would Mel Watt ever have been a congressman if not for the gerrymandering? Could be that other districts if drawn better could have spread out the AA vote to help more districts, but the other side to that coin is, a Mel Watt might not ever have emerged. Each party has saw benefit in the 12th or it would have been changed.

    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    Then the people will have to vote their interests and elect people who represent them. That is sort of how the constitution was written. The problem is, that the people are stupid and want to stay that way. 30 second ads used to do it, now INTSTAGRAM is all they need to make decisions. Just a few demonizations and you get their vote. But to override the whole voting process by electing judges to give you what you want because you are too lazy to get it through your representative further screws up the system. Your local "representative" is the way to go. Now, if a D or R is bought off, then you have to go elsewhere And as far as the abortion card that is played with regularity in every election and every SCOTUS nomination, just how illegal would it be? Conservatives should probably leave it alone because if it goes back to the states, not telling what will happen, probably much worse. But besides that, Roberts want entertain it and it would probably now be 6-3 in favor that it is precedent.

    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    They are to be champions of the law, not people and not business, the law. Congress writes the laws, they are the "champions". That is why we elect them every 2 years as they are to be close to "the people"

    Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

    Wow. Walking right wing nut job litmus test.......insert name. Yeah, we heard it all BEFORE any pick was made. This is all just the normal hyperbole. Even Ruth G and A Scalia got about 90 votes in the senate and they were definitely more ideological than most. But things have changed. Everyone is the devil now, everyone. Or so says Fox and MSNBC and CNN. So it must be true

    Probably as close to Kennedy as you will get. Will be a swing vote Lots of conservatives not happy. Replaces Scalia with a conservative similar Replaces Kennedy with a swing guy similar For all the rhetoric, not much changing
  9. https://www.peacecorps.gov/news/library/peace-corps-announces-2018-top-volunteer-producing-schools/ I remember, 30 years ago, that the Peace Corps was the primary way that people out of college "helped" people in other nations. Not sure if the participation rate is as high percentage wise now. How many Huddlers have been to another country in a humanitarian capacity? Been to several on business. I have done quite a few domestic helps as in floods and tornadoes, but only one outside the 50 states. Basically Puerto Rico (51st state), some 10 years ago. We painted houses and ran water lines for people with no running water. Hot as crap every, single, day. Anyway, might go with my church back to Guatemala later this year. We have one remote town that we go to every year and continue building buildings for schools and such. It seems to work well as we now know them, then know us, etc.

    We occasionally import items from other countries, so yes. What I was saying was that I have been to several countries on business, but only Puerto Rico for a week (not church sponsored) to do humanitarian work

    Everyone is not you We don't take goofy teenagers. They have no clue how to build anything. You sort of talk like a goofy teenager however.

    Well, I was just posing the question because everyone seems to think just sending money is better. I would disagree, but as usual, I am in the minority

    What about the Peace Corps? Anyone you know been part of that? What do you think the difference in building a school through a church or through the Peace Corps would be?

    What type work did your group do? Ours is mostly construction. Getting the materials to them is nightmarish. Roads are barely enough to get certain vehicles through.

    Plus, if I want to spend my money to go somewhere to lay on the beach and have others serve me, then I will do it, conversely, if I want to spend my money to go somewhere and serve someone else, I will do it. Where primarily are your friends serving? What part of the world? @Harbingers

    These people, in Guatemala are very remote. We bring loads of construction materials, tools, etc. Just sending money to Central America and hoping it all goes toward your goal is quite risky. Part of the process is getting to know someone, putting faces with names. Very hard to communicate though as electricity is spotty. I understand the math on "just sending money", and certain situations would be better but not sure this is one that would work out
