i can't listen to him

or any republican. there's just a visceral reaction that is unbearable. so i have the hearing paused. i want to hear the democrats and the protesters.

i'll be calling my 2 traitorous senators today.

i think kavanaugh if confirmed can spell the end of our democracy, because he will overturn everything progressive from roe v wade to labor laws to social security and so on. Also he is trump's get out of jail free card. if he is confirmed we could have trump in the white house until he dies.

still shocked at the fecklessness of the republicans, their dirty tricks, their breathtaking hypocrisy, their violation of their oath to the constitution. this feels like the final nail in the coffin of democracy to me.

talk me down. i'm at work and it's very hard to work under this cloud.

7. won't happen as long as the republicans are in charge

and even after November if we win spectacularly it will be a long shot that he would be convicted. republicans just won't do it.

5. I guess I think

that it's important to hear what he says, in order to discuss his views intelligently with his supporters. If I have to tell my R friends, "I didn't hear that because I had my fingers in my ears going, 'Lalalalalalalalalalalala,' I won't have a lot of credibility.

6. yes.

i read it later and see parts of it on the news. it's not just him. it's the republicans. they seem to have nothing at all but bullshit and plastic flowers.

i'm really not sure hearing what he says is useful though. because it's bullshit. clearly he will say whatever he thinks will get him confirmed. anything at all. from what of i saw and heard of him yesterday, he's a republican through and through. no conscience and no respect for the rule of law except when it's wielded as a weapon to advance the republican agenda.

9. especially santorum.

why is he on tv? he's got nothing but bullshit propaganda to offer.

for me it's pretty much all of them. pence. spicer, huckabee sanders, all the gish galloping talking heads they collect; i only watch them to see the "panels" shoot them down. not to mention fox news and all that implies.

free speech makes these liars and propagandists possible. in the meantime the president calls the press the enemy of the people and suggests outlawing protest.

we're swirling the drain, teetering on the precipice, hanging on by the skin of our teeth. sometimes i wish we could fast forward to the denouement of this historical era. at least then i'd know whether democracy survives in the USA.

12. i keep telling myself this, too.

Next time we have the White House and the Senate, we must burn the GOP to the ground and salt the earth. McConnell deserves retribution for Garland. The GOP deserves retribution for Trump.

Target #1 is Alito and Thomas' retirements. Force them out like Trump forced Kennedy out.

13. it seems to me

that Thomas has ethics violations that should subject him to impeachment.
yeah. as long as everyone votes the dems will gain power and some righting of this ship can begin. fingers crossed
