    Brett Kavanaugh Can't be Bothered

    Personally, I would love to see Dr Ford before the committee to see her answer to questions regarding the discrepant recollections on events, places and time. I'd also like to hear her explanations regarding the timing of her desire to do this reveal 36 years after the fact. The single demand of having an opening statement without limitations is too broad. We have to have a time for something like this or this would effectively become a filibuster that is very likely based on a lie. Personally, I think it is the Democrats' worst nightmare to get Dr. Ford to answer these questions on a national stage.

    North Korea Summit

    My understanding is that China and Russia have stakes in undermining any sanctions that the rest of the world imposes on NK. The best hope at actual peace imo is for SK to convince NK that they have FAR MORE to gain by playing ball rather than staying the course and trusting China and Russia to do anything more than keep them on a tight leash. The prudent stance for anyone to take is a "I'll believe it when I see it" approach. So far, this looks like all of the other times in the past half century that NK dipped its toes into these waters.

    ABCB is the only rhyme scheme

    On that, we absolutely agree

    If North Korea was Dr. Ford, we'd be having preemptive celebratory peace summits by now

    When you can accurately demonstrate a working knowledge of variance and how it relates to the failing of computer modeling, then you'll have a leg to stand on. Otherwise, you're covering for your own lack of understanding

    But her original recollection differed from subsequent recollections. If Team D wanted this to be taken seriously, they would have insisted this be investigated 2 months ago. They didn't. It's kabuki theater.

    Then you missed the point. I was stating that there's all kinds of things that the will of the people (majority) ended up undermining individual rights. Ergo, the pure democracy was not how this governance was set up. Rather, it was set up as a democratic republic with an electoral college. Two houses of congress. One being the house of representatives to accurately reflect the populations that were being represented, and one being the senate, where each state had an equal say. There was and is a reason for this.

    All cookie.... and not one crumb of actual science to back yourself up? You were MADE for academia!

    And we're still presuming that this weaponized accusation isn't some political stunt just on the sheer ridiculous timing of it alone? Why didn't it come up during confirmation for DC Circuit Court of Appeals? Or any of the other elections prior to that?

    so... no opinion on majoritarian tyrannies?

    I didn't miss it... I thought this was the whataboutism part of the "debate"

    ouch.... not exactly..... tell me the state where causing the death of an unborn at 9 months gestation wouldn't be prosecuted as murder

    Nope. Not one bit. I happen to actually land on the Pro-Choice side of the fence when it comes to policy. I'm pro-life when it comes to my personal life. The reason that I'm pro-choice is exactly because I can't dictate my personal morality on anyone else when I don't have definitive proof. The thing is... neither do you. You can't tell me what makes a person a person, when they start being a person, when they stop being a person, or what criteria would hold up to thoughtful scrutiny. I've studied a lot about how the brain develops, teratology and its revelations, how predictive it becomes to cellular and eventually behavioral expression, and how so much of it seems to run the course of how many people view the evolution of neurological systems. For all that we've come to understand, there remains an ocean of lack of understanding to what goes into making people as it is generally accepted. As a result, the people that have doubt on their positions are the ones I trust most. It is those people that strut about in absolute conviction of their faiths that send off alarm bells to me. You have firmly fit into that category. Here's a cookie

    And therein lies the crux.... you can't bring yourself to call it a baby. If you do.... then you've spelled out the failings of your position. If you don't, then you safely fall back to the "humans are the most important species, and fetuses are not humans" altar. Here's the problem Chuck. The reason the argument is so contentious is that NO ONE can definitely say when someone becomes a person. As a result, anyone on either side cannot claim absolute moral authority... but hell, people can sure as hell lash out with a long string of rationalizations to prevent themselves from confronting the horrible alternative.
