Trump wants to send one of The Republic of Gilead's finest to the United States Court of Appeals...


Some Worry About Judicial Nominee’s Ties to a Religious Group

By Laurie Goodstein
Sept. 28, 2017

One of President Trump’s judicial nominees became something of a hero to religious conservatives after she was grilled at a Senate hearing this month over whether her Roman Catholic faith would influence her decisions on the bench.

The nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, a law professor up for an appeals court seat, had raised the issue herself in articles and speeches over the years. The Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee zeroed in on her writings, and in the process prompted accusations that they were engaged in religious bigotry.

“The dogma lives loudly within you,” declared Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, in what has become an infamous phrase. Senator Orrin Hatch, Republican of Utah, accused his colleagues of employing an unconstitutional “religious test” for office.

Ms. Barrett told the senators that she was a faithful Catholic, and that her religious beliefs would not affect her decisions as an appellate judge. But her membership in a small, tightly knit Christian group called People of Praise never came up at the hearing, and might have led to even more intense questioning.


Welcome to my favorite time of year!

They grow 'em big and dumb out in Nebraska...



I think that we all know why GOPrs love to be racist, sexist, hypocritical assholes...

It’s because, a long time ago, they’ve tried to pretend to live lives as decent human beings, but they were punished for it.

They figured out that stealing votes, pandering to the white majority’s fears and prejudices and whoring themselves out to oligarchs and religious con-artists was much more lucrative.

When it comes right down to it, they see everything in the world is about the money and power that they feel that they’re entitled to. The people are just obstacles in their way or just rubes to be exploited.

...And everything else and everyone else be damned.

Well, Times they-are-a-changing and they can see that well all know that the jig is up, so they’re going about stealing as much as they can now and rigging the system in order to keep as much as they’ve stolen before they bail.

Rats raiding the pantry before leaving a sinking ship, as it were.

When we finally get the chance to take over the books we’re going to see just how much they’ve hosed us all. And they’re going to use any effort to correct misdeeds and recoupe what they’ve stolen to lie about us in order to regain power so they can steal and cheat some more.

That’s not a sustainable model for a thriving nation. It’s a recipe for a dying, failing empire.

It’s why the Republican Party needs to be destroyed and their ideals tossed on the ash heap of history.

The people are speaking.

One of these men is a pathetic, tragi-comically sad caricature of a human being...

The other in Grandpa Munster.

Things that make you go hmmmm...

Why I pretty much don't watch these shows...

Just posted my latest show


Now that GOPrs are rain-roading Kavanuagh through to a seat on Supreme Court

Especially without any real process to evaluate whether or not he’s a rapey pig, it’s up to women voters to make them pay.

The ball is in their court now.

Don't try this at home...
