Yeah, I don't know if there's a law against it or anything and, frankly, I was surprised by the harsh rebuke. So...I don't know what to tell you.

Just sharing my experience and trying to be helpful. I'll go back to watching Devs now.

It's technically illegal under vote-buying laws.  But it's also so common that no one cares.

Thanks for the clarification.

I’m so confused. 

This makes me think, more than ever, that Schumer's words the other day were chosen carefully.  Distinct proof that Roberts only speaks out for conservative judges.

The problem for Roberts, regardless of political affiliation, is that with Trump, he would be responding to attacks on the judiciary weekly if not daily.

While it might be nice to have a voice of authority countering the dipshit-in-chief on the regular, I don't think any Chief Justice would find that level of entanglement wise.

Hell, even RBG has taken on Trump on a rare occasion.  Rare.  And she got reamed for it, by the usual suspects and also a few on "her side."

It's a lose-lose proposition for him.

Part of the problem with Trump is that one must choose their battles carefully or the protest rhetoric becomes as normalized as the latest outrage.  More symbolic protest is not the answer.

You can't talk sense to the morons that support this guy.  Forget about it.

More meaningful action and less talking about it is the answer.

 

I agree if its the same ol' protesters. For the protest to be meaningful now, it has to the Republicans and the conservatives and the Evangelicals protesting. Unfortunately, 99+% of those have put party over democracy because apparently totalitarianism (as long as its R-totalitarianism) > democracy.

Why would she? Joe Biden is on the ballot in November. Brett Kavanaugh, not so much.

He was the swing vote on a 5-4 decision that upheld a NY gun ban law the other day. So there's that.

Sure, BIden needs to address it.  It's a bad look and he needs to take responsibility.  

Now should it "cancel" him or end his campaign?  I don't know.  Have the 20+ credible women including children who have accused Trump of raping them cancelled him?  Did the tape of Trump admitting he likes raping women cancel him?  Did the porn star he paid off during the first campaign cancel him?  Can you link one single post where you acted concerned at all about allegations against Trump being a rapist?  Or is this all disingenuous bullshit on your part?

Like you said, buncha hypocrites up in this mfer.  All fingers pointed directly at you.

scotus seats are surprisingly cheap:

The conservative dark money group that led the fight to install Brett Kavanaugh on the US Supreme Court received nearly $16 million from a single mystery donor, according to IRS documents we recently obtained.

The documents show that the  (JCN) received a total of nearly $30 million of donations in between July 2018 and June 2019 — the period that covered Kavanaugh’s tumultuous confirmation. In addition to the $15.9 million donation from a single donor, the group received five other seven-figure donations from anonymous sources.
