Re: “Will Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott come to conscience on Kavanaugh?

No need in trying to persuade this individual with facts and evidence. Or the innocent until proven guilty tag. Face facts, he and his ilk will support Progressives and their cause regardless of the obvious facts directly in their collective, group think faces. Once Conservatives learn this, and begin to fight, really fight, in the voting booth and in the streets, these cowards will ve vanquished very quickly. All bark and no bite.

Re: “Will Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott come to conscience on Kavanaugh?

Jeremy,
You are a disgrace to your church. You should hope that you are not accused of something bad because you would be guilty as charged .... not after the facts. The Circular Church should excuse you from further participation.

Re: “Will Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott come to conscience on Kavanaugh?

Convicted of the crime before he has had a fair hearing! REALLY??? How about if I said a black man sexually assaulted me and therefore all black men are rapists. Innocent until proven guilty is what this country was founded on. None of us in the public has even heard this Dr Ford speak or get a look in her eyes. I have looked women Drs. In the eye as an RN and told them they were making a mistake and the look on their face said it all. Ever seen guilt written all over a childs face?

Re: “Will Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott come to conscience on Kavanaugh?

To piggyback on your reference to Baldwin; who isolated men from women? Take a close look if you dare. I'll give you a hint; it was not your usual whipping post of evil old white men. It is a sexual free-for-all environment.The sexual revolution declared that the traditional restraints on the male libido norms of male chivalry and gentlemanliness and of female modesty and prudencewere patriarchal and oppressive. Men were told to stop protecting women and putting them on a pedestal. Males and females were assumed to desire easy sex with equal fervor, and demanded to be able to walk away from a one-night stand with equal complacency. With regard to students, adults were expected to remain nonjudgmental and as far out of the picture as possible-because the sexual conduct of their children was no longer any of their business. The results were not pretty: the male libido, free to act as boorishly as it wanted; females getting drunk to reduce their innate sexual inhibitions, unprotected by any default assumptions against casual premarital sex. Whether a 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh took advantage of this putative sexual liberation, many other teenagers have, and in so doing, merely followed the new script for sexual relations. Feminism has brought this situation upon us, where it was once assumed that when men were asking women the question about sex, the presumption was always 'no' unless the woman says yes, the situation feminism has given us is the answer is 'yes' and its up to women to come up with a good reason for saying no. There's your answer to the isolation. That said, what has happened to innocence presumed until proven guilty? Perhaps its not a matter of 'insecure white men' rallying around one of their own, but a matter of law. Remember the law? Innocent until proven guilty? Would you want to be accused of something so despicable and have all of your means of defending yourself taken away? How does one disprove a negative? Ever tried that? Have you made just as angry calls in regards to Korrey Booker or Keith Ellison? Closer to home, how about Archie Parnell, who in the 70's beat up his wife? Where was the angry outrage for that? Maybe it has nothing to do with with sexual assault at all, maybe it has nothing to do with being white, but has to do with politics and having the big letter "D" next to the candidate's name. Perhaps this outrageous smear of a man who has better credentials than many of the people already on the supreme court has nothing to do with these allegations at all. The fear is that the SCOTUS will once again interpret the Constitution and the Bill of Rights rather than legislate from the bench. Dianne Feinstein had the information about Ms. Ford well before the Senate hearing, she was obligated to share it with the other members of the Judiciary committee, but instead she sat on it waiting to see if any of the other accusations against Kavanaugh stuck, the race card didn't work, the anti-Roe v. Wade card didn't work, so finally she had to go nuclear. The whole game plan is to delay the confirmation until the mid-term elections. As a man of religion, will you pray for the truth to prevail? And even if you see Judge Kavanaugh as your enemy, will you pray for him and his family as as scripture commands us? Will you pray for his family who are being despicably mistreated in the wake of all of this?

Re: “S.C. 5th District: A race between a man who jokes about sexual assault and a man who has admitted to domestic abuse

But here I am with earnest discussion! I answered your personal attacks with a defense of why I wrote what I wrote only to be met with more ad hominem.

I guess you got me if you were just poking me from the get-go, but it doesn't make sense to do that and then feign good intentions if I don't respond how you want.

Re: “S.C. 5th District: A race between a man who jokes about sexual assault and a man who has admitted to domestic abuse

I used to criticize Chris Haire and we would have earnest discussion.
You,on the other hand, are as thin-skinned and reactive as the president, and from time-to-time it's just fun to poke you to see the reaction.

Re: “S.C. 5th District: A race between a man who jokes about sexual assault and a man who has admitted to domestic abuse

So then sometimes (by your standard) there are definitely times when they aren't coincidences.

And it's in the second sentence. Sorry to bust your bubble.

Pharisees were religious people too -- they also had a thing for crucifying people without proof of guilt.

Nice role models you got there, Jeremy!!!

At least y'all Democrats are trying to lynch a white guy for a change!

First, sometimes coincidences are just that - coincidences.
Second, you may bury the reference to Haley 2/3 of the way through the column and in the middle of a paragraph, but it still changes the tone of the column into an accusation.
This type of reporting would get you an "F" in a first-year journalism class and is more suited to the Enquirer or the Star.
Or is that the direction City Paper is turning to?

Re: “The curtains in Nikki Haley’s taxpayer-funded NYC penthouse cost more than most S.C. families make in a year

Crossposting from another story where this came up- The majority of this story is critical of the system that allowed all of this to happen. It's a system that predates Haley, Obama, Trump, all of them. Heck, the NYT story has a quote from a Kennedy lamenting that she only had ONE part-time maid! It's really something. And just so we're clear: The NYT did not retract the story. It's relevant to South Carolina because she's the former governor and is now the occupant of that office, so that's why this particular post focuses on her.

And I've never been called childish by an adult who uses the word butthurt, but thanks, Edward.

Re: “S.C. 5th District: A race between a man who jokes about sexual assault and a man who has admitted to domestic abuse

Ima, Cid- First, I'm not trying to equate the two. Norman cracked a(nother) stupid joke about a woman and Parnell confessed to domestic abuse.

I just think it's a terrible coincidence that the two rich and powerful guys Democrats and Republicans have chosen to nominate find themselves on the same ballot and in this situation, creating a crappy choice for S.C. voters. (Or maybe it's not all that surprising...)

And on the Haley story, Ima- Since you read my post (thanks!), you'll remember that the majority of it was critical of the system that allowed all that to happen. It's a system that predates Haley, Obama, Trump, all of them. Heck, the NYT story had a quote from a Kennedy lamenting that she only had ONE part-time maid! It was really something. (I'll x-post this on that story too.)

Lump me in with the Democrats all you want, but both of these stories are critical of politicians from both parties and the system.
