    Leave it to Republican owned servant Benson to ignore the damage that the Republicans and their sycophants/apologists have done when herr trump was in office.

    Ukraine: a strain on the USA and the rest of the world, but not a specific issue for this administration.

    Border: Basically unchanged in decades aside from the child kidnapping and forced hysterectomies done by 45 and Stephen Miller.

    Build Back Better: Infrastructure America desperately needs, which is being blocked and slowed by every possible Republican means.

    Inflation: Actually price gouging, and a global issue, not one due to any administration beyond a small margin of actual inflation due to an increase in currency.

    Lisa again illustrates the Trump Disciple/Republican mind set.

    Republicans believe the reason to select justices is to enforce the right wing agenda and to supply red meat for their Base, NOT to appoint a qualified individual. They would ram through Sarah Palin or MTG if they could.

    .

    And, it’s nothing new. Alito, Scalia, and Thomas all appeared at Republican fund raisers. Republicans (pre-asterisk) used to appoint actual Conservatives, at least sometimes. But too many of them decided to actually uphold the Constitution.

    Now all Republican* appointees subscribe to the Prime Directive: It’s OKAY If A Republican* Does It.

    Next he’s going to pick an illegal boarder crosser to continue to make the Supreme Court look more like America. Forget about the most qualified. Just reverse the words to see if it’s racist. If any other president or corporate leader said he/she would appoint a white man to a position would it go unnoticed? Would it be fair? If anyone disagrees with me I’m calling you a pedophile in advance. If you reply to this I’m not reading it, just like democrat’s voting on bills don’t read them anymore. Okay, I got a job. I have to go now. BOTS RAGE ON!

    Lisa fails to show that if Senate Republicans had had their way Jackson would NOT be the first African-American woman on the bench.

    The vote was 53-47. It should have been 100-0. Forty-seven Republican Senators put party shenanigans above the good of the nation.

    Don’t even bother mentioning the Kavanaugh or Barrett confirmation. That’s apples and oranges.

    What happened is the Republicans failed in their attempt to keep her off the bench and Lisa has no choice but pretend that Jackson’s confirmation is a good thing, but insignificant compared to what she considers Democrat failures.

    Let’s celebrate the GOOD thing. Congrstulations Justice Brown.

    Once upon a time, a Justice died, and the controlling body’s leader said: “It’s too close to a Presidential election to even consider an appointment”.

    Twice upon a time, a Justice died, and the controlling body’s leader said: “Just because it’s much closer to a Presidential election doesn’t mean a thing.”

    In answer to nos.nevets scenarios above, I put it to you that the phrase “it doesn’t mean a thing”, is what a number of people operate by as their core principle, even though they swore oaths to the contrary.

    At the moment, I wonder if, depending on the outcome of the next two elections (2022 & 2024), if sitting Justices “of the wrong type” may be removed by caveat?

    Making America smaller, austere, unsafe, violent, and more third-world-like is not a good thing. The “dead weight” and dysfunctionality of anti-progressivism [in both contentious, winner-take-all right-wing parties] is dragging American optimism/exceptionalism down … and preventing all but the top 10% from enjoying the fruits of our productivity. The deliberate, willful lack of pro-American [Country over party] moderates willing to work with others to benefit all Americans … seems to be the primary goal of the hyperpartisan representatives now infesting our politics.

    A justice who can’t define “woman”, nominated by a party that can’t define “common sense”.

    I think one thing that many people missed with Jackson’s response, “I’m not a biologist” is that she is testifying that the definition of a woman is determined by biology, science, DNA.

    I find it extremely ironic that the disinformation and propaganda techniques Putin has applied to the Russian people is the same type of propaganda found on right wing media and web sites.

    The efficacy of that propaganda has resulted in families with both Ukrainian and Russian roots being torn apart by division and hatred. Many Russians with internet access are able to seek international news source, but choose not to, believing instead the lies put out by Putin’s government media. We see the same effect here, when some American family members are locked into FOX “News” or OANN or other sources, becoming increasingly radicalized into positions of extreme partisanship morphing into actual hatred and even violence.

    Some Russians now blindly support Putin and deny the fact of the murderous atrocities being committed against Ukraine. Similarly, some Americans blindly support extreme right wing positions and leaders, and have a blind hatred against fellow Americans.

    Thoughtful conservatives like Kracklin and Ammo have been similarly polarized by their immersion into right-wing media, but at least they are able to recognize and reject really stupid assertions – such as “all Democrats are pedophiles”, and the knee-jerk attack by Senators on qualified candidates for office being rejected out of hand. I can only hope people like Kracklin and Ammo can objectively see and appreciate the parallels between Russian and right wing propaganda and the effect it has, and then take the next step of evaluating other sources of information.

    Others (and you know who they are) are just trolls who get their jollies by pissing people off, or are so radicalized they are unable to accept empirical truth or facts.

    Vote blue and only blue in the fall and maybe we can have those nice things.

    Vote red and vote your rights away and watch the infrustructure crumble, until they sell it to foreign interests to make us have to pay everytime we take our car on any road. Vote red until the fascist Republicans are confident enough to take your guns away, just like their hero Hitler did.

    and bkdarling once again demonstrates the wingnut proclivity for bending the truth. it wasn’t, of course, that judge jackson couldn’t define a certain word. she declined to do so. but the wingnut cohort will keep lying about this until kingdom come…

    One party seems obsessed with ‘firsts’. As part of the broad middle, we prefer ‘bests’. Ukraine lost Crimea and wound up with years of war in its east when we had our ‘first’ black president. We also got healthcare through insurance company middlemen because it was easier than providing everyone, rich or poor, with the option of a National Health Service. Trump got elected because the broad middle was tired of being bullied by the radicals and wasn’t ready for Hillary as president, regardless of her race or gender.

    You radicals push for the changes that please you, but are terrified of climate change. You don’t mention that the carbon in fossil fuels was once part of the atmosphere, removed by lifeforms incorporating it in living bodies. The earth was once rather warmer than it is now, and life flourished. You don’t mention that a warmer earth could make Siberia and Alaska and northern Canada and the entire continent of Antarctica pleasant places to live again. You ridiculed Trump for showing an interest in the US acquiring Greenland, ignoring the mineral wealth and additional living space we could have acquired when it warmed up. Face it- the only ‘change’ you are comfortable with is forcing everyone else to live according to your preferences. You are radically conservative people.

    Oil exploration and drilling companies have many stock owners, large and small. When President Biden tells them to drill more wells and ramp up production, but still expect to be shut down as soon as he can arrange it, what is their fiscally-responsible response? Not to spend shareholders’ cash on efforts that will never pay for themselves, of course. If President Biden were less concerned about his reputation regarding climate change, and more concerned about the energy needs of many, many little people, he could have more oil without using up our reserves to buy votes for his party in the fall.

    It’s going to take more than one qualified Judge on the SCOTUS to stop the destruction of our so called democracy by the six RWNJs who think turning the country over to the greedy psychopaths on Wall Street is a good idea.

    at first glance, i thought her screed was satire, but then it became clear that she really believes the crap she’s spewing. that, for example, it’s possible to buy greenland (wait… can’t stop giggling…)…

    appears terrified by even the suggestion of change. The U.S. made the Louisiana Purchase and bought Alaska. If the current sovereigns of Greenland were willing to transfer sovereignty to the U.S. for some consideration and the residents agreed, what would gofer’s objection be? No harm in broaching the subject. Nothing asked, nothing gained. If they say no, nothing lost.

    Only people who ridicule any suggestion for change that isn’t approved by their religion would find fault for just considering change… (giggle giggle)

    Get Smart!

    Have a lovely day!

    greenland isn’t for sale. all the parties concerned who’d be affected by such a transaction have made that clear. sure, you can ask, what if? but a person asking questions of geopolitical significance doesn’t usually publicize the fantasizing without notifying the partners if said person has half a brain or is occupying the office of the president of the u.s. unless, of course, that person is donald trump. to bring it up again after the matter has officially been laid to rest isn’t just rude, it’s stupid. yes, it sure would be lovely to have all those resources, but they’re not on offer – recognizing reality isn’t “terrified at the suggestion of change,” it’s called rational thought…
