Hack Rod is still butthurt about being called out on his hypocrisy regarding multis.

There is nothing wrong with having a multi as long as you don't hide behind it like a snot nose, pimple faced, sniveling little coward.


If you don't know who that is, look in the mirror.

You are right.

If Brett was the best qualified how come he wasn't on Trump's list of 20 in 2016?

He got even better. 2 years to be better than those 20?


Imagine the heights of greatness he'll achieve in a lifetime of service on the supreme court

Why don't you post his list of the previous 20 since you are such good buddies with Trump?

In 2016 there was two lists. One had eleven names and one had ten names. 2017 those lists were combined into one. Obviously they were not complete because five more names were added later in 2017. Kavanaugh was one of the five added later.
Making the list late doesn't mean he isn't qualified. Most Democrats didn't argue his qualifications instead concentrating on his character.

Which would have gotten where, exactly? Nobody on the right seems to give a shit about his absolutely dreadful views on law.

"Nobody on the right seems to give a shit about his absolutely dreadful views on law."

The American Bar Association had him listed as well qualified right up to the day after Ford gave her little speech then said they were rethinking that based on his temperament. The reevaluation has nothing to do with his views on the law.

Democrats didn't argue his credentials nor qualifications because they knew there was nothing there to argue. They tried to scare people with Roe v Wade for a bit but they knew before they started down that road Roe v Wade isn't going to be put in jeopardy.

All they had as weapons against Kavanaugh was emotional pleas and character assassinations.

The only thing the Republicans will ever do to Roe . Wade is toss it to the States.


Might be a plus.

Soros will then have to pay so many protestors for all of those States he might go bankrupt.

The ABA listing him as qualified doesn't mean he had good legal opinions. Do you:

Support the PATRIOT ACT?
Support NSA domestic spying?
Support the president being effectively immune to punishment while in office?
Support consolidation of executive branch powers (think: every single agency in the fed) all onto the president?
Support massive overreach of "first amendment protections"?

The guy is a fucking loon. His legal opinions are awful. He's also probably a rapist.

The only issue on your list I looked into is the presidential immunity issue and that one is so convoluted and twisted by those who opposed him that it is silly. You might want to go read the actual opinion and not the one or two sentences the Democrats provided for you.

Hot Rod if you are pro life you might want to reconsider. Turning the issue to the states works both ways. If the federal government is unable to tell a state they can't ban abortion they also can't tell a state they can't allow third trimester abortions. I doubt any state would outright ban abortion but they may make it much more difficult to get an abortion. Outright banning abortion might cause an exodus of businesses from the state.
For the women who live in states where abortions are hard to obtain there would be a network set up to get them to states with lenient abortion laws. Soros wouldn't have to spend money to protest states that ban abortion he could just pump funds into organizations that would help women get to the nearest state where they could have their abortion.

I think abortion is morally wrong in almost every case but I don't think government has any business legislating morals (to a point some argue slavery was a moral issue) so I don't think the government should ban abortions. I am also a states rights believer so if the government is going to ban abortions it should do so at the state level.

"The only issue on your list I looked into"

Yes, I'm glad you prove my point. Arguing the issues clearly doesn't matter. People at least listened to "kavanaugh is a rapist." Nobody even wants to listen to "kavanaugh wants the NSA to watch everything you do" or "kavanaugh wants to allow big corporations to abuse their customers on flimsy 'first amendment' grounds."

I have always been conflicted by the issue. Like you, I believe in States Rights, but more.

I hate and despise abortion, but at the same time, I believe each individual is sovereign, including women. They have the absolute right to make decisions about their own bodies.


Actually, I don't think it will ever be overthrown.

The Democrats will never overturn it because they hate and despise the Black folks and the Democrats will never allow the Republicans to overthrow it for the same reason.

"Yes, I'm glad you prove my point."

You had a point?

Had they argued the issues I would have been more inclined to look into those issues. I did look at his opinions on issues that didn't make your list because they were of interest to me and others piqued my curiosity.

I did go look at some of his opinions on the NSA and phone records in particular since my last post and I don't agree with his views on that one. Doesn't mean he will suck as a Supreme Court Justice though. Just means I found something where my opinions are different than his.

And you still didn't have a point

For people who can read words and follow simple sentences, I certainly did.

For you? It seems I'm talking to myself.

(1) You're thinking EpiPens
(2) That's not being very respectful of women
(3) Even if you hate Mylan, way to condemn the father for the sins of his daughter

I was not aware of that about the daughter. I believe they sent some guy to prison for doing the same thing. Was that for a different medication?

Actually, we did not need his vote after all. It was only for his followers anyway.

patom whines about Epipen price hikes, but no doubt supports extensive FDA barriers to competition.

Any surprise no one can enter the market at 10% of the price when they have to have a billion+ dollars just to get cleared?

Forwyn. The epipen was invented by a government worker who didn't get anything for his invention. The Cunt didn't do anything but lobby enough of daddy's corrupt fellow politicians to make her version of the epipen the sole provider.

Actually I have an apology to make toward Cunts. They are warm and nurturing which Heather Bresch is neither of. Oxygen thief would be a more accurate descriptor.

Also, there are generic versions available if you really can't afford the price.
