Not murdered though, shot. She was in critical condition but thankfully might survive. Unless there's new information out there I can't find!

It's like that old joke: Republicans always win their arguments, because anything the libs say after that is that start of a new argument.

The angle you are taking here denotes that anyone capable of taking from others is allowed. There are no human rights outside of laws created.

Thus, in the model you are advocating, those in power over others now have the right to take up to life from those without power.

You may argue legal, but laws change, again, those in power can change laws to take your life if it is to their benefit.


It is a self destructive.

Following Anthony Kennedy's retirement from SCOTUS, a Pulitzer Prize-winning megagenius named Kathleen Parker told us that Roe v. Wade "isn't going anywhere" and characterized claims to the contrary as "wild-eyed jackassery."

So naturally, post-Dobbs, said Pulitzer Prize-winning megagenius is doubling down, claim she was "on the nose" when she wrote that horseshit. And, of course:

Quote:
Had the “jackals” of the abortion rights movement not protested at Kavanaugh’s house, Parker said, he might well have switched sides in the Dobbs case.
I cannot lol at that idiocy, and I've tried very hard.

On a final note, it looks like a Pulitzer Prize is every bit as much a guarantee of high-quality journalism/punditry as inclusion in Best Lawyers is a guarantee of high-quality legal services. (Note: Inclusion in Best Lawyers is in no way, shape or form, and is by no stretch of the imagination even arguably a guarantee of high-quality legal services.)

You know maybe it was the attempt on Kavanaughs life after the leak that really swayed SCOTUS. They don’t agree with each other but they’re still their own. It’s the same way at my work we take care of our own

There are other people who know more about the process than me, but I personally doubt it. All of Trump's appointees were selected from a list of people well approved by the anti-choice groups.

Maybe it might have swayed Robert's vote, but that would still have made it a 5-4 decision.

I wonder how Kavanaugh survived such a close call on his life…

Washington Esaminer It was just after 1 a.m. Wednesday when Roske, who is from Simi Valley, California, called the police on himself, saying, "I need psychiatric help." He had called a cab to the home of Kavanaugh and arrived just one block away from the house before police arrested him. He told the operator that he had shown up to hurt "Brett Kavanaugh … the Supreme Court justice.”

Roske reported having suicidal and homicidal thoughts, as well as an intent to assassinate the sitting Supreme Court justice, according to court records released Thursday.

911 records show man accused in plot to kill Kavanaugh called police on himself | Washington Examiner

Extremely dangerous assassin, calls police on himself to get help, separates himself from his weapons, is taken in with no incident.

Here is a case of actual mental illness and I feel sorry for the guy because he’s now going to get used by republicans. If only the US had a robust system of mental health facilities, oh wait, thanks Reagan!

David Brooks wonders whether the FBI just reelected Trump.

This here blogger wonders:

Quote:
At what point does the Sulzberger family decide that David Brooks, their doddering, ideologically-incontinent housepet, has finally shit on one too many of the family's hand-knotted Bokara rugs to be kept around any longer?

At what point will he be dispatched to an Elite Pundit Farm upstate where he can gambol and opine all day long in the warm sunshine with the ghosts of fellow pundits like David Broder and William Safire?

Chile is asking for a quick Democracy Export



Henry Kissinger - I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people. The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves.

That "Democracy Dies in Darkness" on the masthead is intended as a threat I guess.
