    Trump likely to win whether or not Kavanaugh is confirmed

    Probably because he knows that the opposition won't accept any investigation that clears him, and will keep up the inquisition against him regardless. What has the parties, all the kegs of beer, etc. got to do with anything? if that counted, no rich kid would ever be allowed to get a high ranked job. Come to it, most western kids drink a lot when they can. It's what they do.

  3. That should be "in recorded history" as humans have inhabited the US for a mere blip in the lifetime of the landmass.
  4. ` Are you talking about all those people that drive cars that use fossil fuel to make and power, and fly to conferences in planes that use fossil fuel so they can tell us how bad we are for using fossil fuel?
  5. Spot on and the only valid reason to stop pollution. Could stop wrapping every thing we buy in plastic too, while they're saving the world.
  6. Once again, for the umpteenth time, it doesn't matter what the rise in temperature is if they can't change it, and I do not believe that taxing us to build windmills and solar power is going to change anything re temperature rise. As for electric cars, biggest con job in history. Car companies make megafortunes, while the taxpayer is left to fund the ginormous expansion in electrical generating capacity required to power them, never mind the huge problems of disposing of the old batteries. The best solution, fuel cells, isn't even on the list of things that will make the rich people even richer from exploiting the sheeple. As with everything, follow the money for the real answers.
  7. If someone doesn't want money, in any shape or form, I'm quite happy not to "tip" them. That a servant would get angry for being given money shows what an insane world we live in now. Personally, I only tip in Thailand for service over and above what they have to do, unless I know them, as in my usual restaurant. Re the cleaner, if she made your life better, give her a big bag of coins.

    Do you have any idea of Kavanaugh's work history? I'm thinking NO, based on what you wrote. He was a highly respected appellate judge. If I'd been falsely accused of something that happened decades ago, and which was threatening my family and career, I'd probably give a pretty hot performance in the hearing too.
  9. Don't hold your breath on that. I'm looking at an increase in GOP senators ( hopefully ).
  10. In this case an investigation was just a waste of time and money. If there were any credible witnesses, their evidence would have been all over the WaPo and NYT by now. That there has been a thunderous silence says it all. IMO and that of many, this entire episode has been only to try and hobble Trump and his agenda. Given the death threats etc that she has received, and no doubt horrible effects on her family's lives from having to live under guard, it will hopefully stop others with zero credible evidence coming forward to try and stop conservative candidates succeeding. The entire political process in Washington is obviously under threat from such tactics.
  11. Nuclear can provide all of it without adding any CO2 at all. Once again, we get some unacountable body telling us the sky is falling and we have to do something about it, but never, ever mentioning the biggest drivers of pollution- overpopulation, and big business ( destruction of rainforests to grow palm oil of raise cattle for hamburgers are just a couple of their sins ). If it's really as bad as they claim, declare martial law and enforce measures to cut pollution. Politicians elected by the greedy will never do what is needed, as too afraid they'll lose their cushy, extremely well paid jobs and all the perks that go with it.
  12. Agree. Kavenaugh should sue her for slander, but I guess he's being diplomatic, as that would really upset the liberals, not that that would worry me. Perhaps someone else can sue her for some related charge. Regardless, she has to live under guard as she and her family have had death threats, so by her actions, she has damaged her own, her children's, and her husband's life, divided the nation, caused havoc and anarchy on the streets, and didn't even achieve the aim of it all. I think the effect of "coming out" has probably been worse than living with it. However, I have no doubt that had she not come out with her tale of woe, someone else would have done so, as the opposition are doing everything they can to cripple Trump's agenda. Happily, they have failed, yet again. Hopefully, the elections will be another massive fail for the Dems and the GOP will win a larger majority, and Trump can finally give Sessions the boot.
  13. Ah, still got the saffron glasses on :-). You are correct about the rules, and are no doubt quite capable of using the report function if you consider the breach serious enough. As for positive threads about LOS, you are welcome to start your own, but as I found out when I start a positive thread the haters usually come out in force, and I often have to ask a moderator to close the thread. Enjoy LOS while you can. The honeymoon effect usually wears off after a few years. Took 20 years for it to wear off with me.
  14. At this length of time since the event, and with no serious witnesses supporting Ford, I doubt there was any evidence for an investigation to find proving it one way or the other. It's all hearsay and she said he said. If in doubt, the verdict must be not guilty. However, this is going to make the liberals melt down. If Kavenaugh is approved, Trump has done the job he wanted to do, even if he loses or does not stand in 2020.
  15. Since when was that part of the equation when starting off working life? Does she expect the taxpayer to, in effect, pay her father and put her siblings through school.
