Christ this has turned into a mansplainers paradise today

Kavanaugh should not be confirmed, regardless of whether he did it or not, until these two things happen:

  1. He releases the missing judicial records

  2. The investigation is complete

Instead, now the US, who are supposed to be a democratic country, are going the same route as Poland, the ruling party trying to gain control of the courts.


#6027

Isn’t this how it goes in the US since a long time? Like the President suggesting who to put into the Supreme court?


#6028

Republicans blocked Obama from picking a supreme Court justice because it was his “last year in office”. I don’t know why folks are so quick to forget that - And now Republicans are using their majority to sneak a rapist in less than a month before the midterms when the balance of power will likely tip away from them.


#6029

I did not even know that was what happened the last time. Still I don’t see why the president can pick someone into the court.


#6030

Kavanaugh confirmed

Maybe this dog fucker will make some people happy when he messes with the right to make your own choices concerning your body (if you’re a woman of course), but not me.


#6031

Dark times ahead for the United States.

It’s a lifetime appointment…he’s 53

Me watching the Senate vote:


#6036

Oh? This nothing. Try Capitol Hill. :stuck_out_tongue:


#6037

Theyve been on a horrible trajectory for a while, but this has screwed them for a generation. Corrupt, amoral, arrogant.


#6038

A lot hinges on Mid-Term Elections. Assuming all sides go out in force to vote.


#6039

A lot does, but even more would have if the Kavanaugh appointment would have been held off until after the elections.


#6040

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.


#6041

This is basically a step towards authoritarianism.


#6042

I don’t get it. Why was toilet paper stuck to trump’s shoe was such a big news. I get it that he is a dickhead hated by large population, but making such big fuss about these little things is petty.


#6043

Ireland, the King is Slain.

#6044

Because it’s another example of him clearly not being fit for the job.
