Your School, My School

leave a comment »

One of the fascinating aspects of the Kavanaugh hearings has been the school aspect. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that most of you reading this went to a public school. If you didn’t, then bear with me for a moment. But if you did go public, then allow me to say that you don’t know Judge Kavanaugh’s experience. A key aspect of the allegations has been school related.

It so happens I went to a private high school. Indeed, I attended a school much more highly rated than Georgetown Prep (in the top ten of that list). I note ironically Holton-Arms is on that list while GP is not. I have not had the career that Judge Kavanaugh has had, but that doesn’t change the fact that I went to a better school than he did. Enough of that. The real point is, I know just what he’s talking about when he refers to parties and social circles.

In short, as snobby as it may sound, exclusive private school kids do not engage in social functions with public school kids. Doesn’t happen. Any public school kid who says so is lying. I know this from my own experience and that of my friends and relations who also attended private school. If you didn’t go to private school, you might object, but if you did, then you know I speak the truth.

In short, private schools are as exclusive socially as they are in terms of admission. You are either part of that, or utterly excluded. The problem now is that only those part of that world know that. And we are a very small group.

Bravo Lindsey Graham

leave a comment »

Now there are three words I never thought I’d write.

Nonetheless, Lindsey Graham deserves kudos for the way he acted at today’s show trial in the senate. And he gave all the other squishes cover (and as head squish, that’s important).

Watch for yourself.

How On Earth Do They Look in the Mirror?

leave a comment »

Amnesty International – a group that does not exactly live up to its lofty goals – has weighed in on the present nonsense regarding Judge Kavanaugh. Let’s be clear – none of the accusations are credible despite what the various Democrats shrilly state. But the simple fact that such a group as AI has decided to weigh in is enough to set one’s teeth.

Let’s be clear – the United States Constitution lays out that it is the United States Senate that has the advice and consent function to confirm or deny principal federal officers especially justices of the Supreme Court.

No one else has this duty. And while they may give an opinion, I can’t help but feel that those who are trying to tell the Senate what to do do – especially when it comes to ‘nomination must be withdrawn’ – should shut the F up. I believe this because those saying so came out against Judge Kavanaugh BEFORE he was nominated. Color me done when you’ve exhibited your bias before there is a subject to be biased. Putzes.

Right now, I don’t care. I don’t believe that Judge Kavanaugh is guilty of a single iota of the charges against him. However, given Keith Ellison, and all the other Democrats accused/guilty of various sexual peccadilloes, I have one response to the Diane Feinsteins of the world. GO POUND SAND!

Your hypocrisy sickens me. Your naked quest for power at the expense of anything decent is revolting. You Democrats must be stopped.

So, vote! Damnit! Vote! Every Republican, every American, every person in this country who despises tyranny must vote. And do NOT vote for ANY Democrat. Not one – not a single Democrat can be trusted. They are not ‘somehow’ independent, looking out for their local interests. They are evil, each and every one of them. They must be shunned and denied power. I grant you, most Republicans will be squishes, not quite what we would want. But they are not tyrants. A vote for a Democrat is a vote for fascism, for tyranny, for oppression. Don’t vote to put people in office who will steal from you, and who long to put you in camps. Just say NO to Democrats.

Just Sayin’

I suspect if I accused someone of something – anything – and refused to testify about it they would not have to respond to it. Indeed, they would not find it somehow inimical to their job prospects. Just sayin …

Borking Kavanaugh and the Walkaway Movement

leave a comment »

As I watch the last minute attempt to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, I can’t help but look a little ahead, to say, November 6th. Since nothing else is going on in the world, everyone is naturally focussed on the allegations of some impropriety (details are sketchy and shifting) at some alleged party a lot of years ago.

While I am certainly disgusted by the behavior of the political left over the years – especially the last two – I note that over the summer, some other people have been feeling the same. They have joined a movement called “Walkaway” which is purportedly Democrats or other political lefties walking away from the Democratic party over their insane and deplorable (yeah, I went there) behavior. Now, as a political conservative, I’ve been rather skeptical of this as from my perspective, there could be a bit too much wishful thinking. I have no idea how big a deal this is, might be, or will be. However, for the sake of argument, I’d have to say the last minute Borking/Thomasing of Judge Kavanaugh should be a watershed moment for those on the Walkaway fence as it were.

I’ll be keeping an eye out to see if there is activity on that front in the next few days. Meanwhile, Investor’s Business Daily has a key insight into what else this means for the future.
