Speaking of unmasked, at least she is being totally honest here.  This is an actual quote from AOC regarding the green plan:  "In addition to providing “economic security for those unable or unwilling to work,” the plan also promises to create “millions of good, high-wage jobs” for willing Americans."{#Eek}

They were finally forced to pretend like they care. You figure they would have better political instincts to at least pretend to be immediately outraged as was the case in the Kavanaugh circus, but wow.   As for the metoo movement itself, the silence is deafening.  I have actually been looking online for some reaction and all I get is crickets.....astounding.{#Eek}  My wife is religious and she keeps saying biblical stuff about the mask coming off of everyone in these times and on both the right and the left we are indeed seeing this, people aren't even trying to not be hypocritical on both sides of the aisle.  Well we are at least getting truth in advertising.

While you are technically correct regarding due process, it used to be a common courtesy extended to everyone in everyday life ... aka, let's not jump to conclusions, things are not always what they may appear to be at first look, etc.  Now it has been replaced with presumption of guilt by association in nearly every aspect of life.

 
This is something akin to the points I made a coupla days ago. It strikes me that some aspects of judgement and punishment without weighing of evidence are temporary reactions to the old habits of underreporting and knee-jerk dismissals of complaints about sexual harassment, discrimination, etc. I think many people want to condemn and remove instances of bad behaviors but right now they seem to automatically believe every accusation and revelation and treat every accused individual as a true personification of those bad behaviors.

Most Democrats I've seen quotes from are calling for Northam and Fairfax to resign/withdraw.  Procedural Due Process applies to trials, not Supreme Court confirmations (aka job interviews); anyhow, nominees are not denied life, liberty, or property during their confirmations.

After watching the nomination process and what went down.  The way the candidate behaved and perjured himself, there is no doubt in my mind.  No one told me to make these conclusions.  I have my own mind and watched with my own eyes so that I was NOT influenced by any 2nd party delivering me the news of the day.   I am not presuming guilt, I know it!

Yes, there does seem to be more presumption of guilt, especially given the saturation of information and exploitation of divisiveness around these days.  Maybe it's been that way for a very long time, but it's definitely more noticeable of late.

WRONG!  Kavanaugh shouldn't have received the nomination.  The broken part you are complaining of is when Obama's (Merrick Garland) nomination didn't get a serious consideration almost a year before he left office.  That was the first strike against Kavanaugh for me.  Then of course finding out he is a misogynistic, drunk ass rapist sealed the deal for me.  Course I can't speak for all dems., only myself. Oh and BTW, the Russian thing is STILL being discovered.  It's hardly last year.  The investigation is yet to be delivered to the people in charge...US!

I am here to make a formal apology to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic power structure for thinking that Sanders was a better choice in the 2016 primary.  I was wrong.  There I said it.  The risk of a Clinton presidency was nothing compared to a Sanders one.{#Eek}
