7. No, the difference is the degree of arrogance it takes to compare an

amateur hobbiest's Google search to "prove" a predetermined conclusion to the lifetime of dedication to the law it takes to become a Constitutional Scholar.

I also can't let the pass the passive/aggressive slight at my research abilities and application of logic. All I can say is that my Masters Thesis got no dings from the jury. Might being on the the Dean's list have swayed the decision? Don't know. The degree was in English, the Thesis was Linguistics vs Semantics, the difference between a word's origin and how it is understood. That was 44years ago so the meaning and use of 'logic' may have changed by now? It clearly has for GE.

Now, with the juvenile taunts out of the way let us to continue down this rabbit hole of two wannabe SCOTUS appointees . . .

Evidence? Is the eye witness testimony of someone knowledgeable of the facts, made to a judge and sworn under Oath or affirmation isn't evidence just what is?

Standards are also a bit different for criminal vs civil law. The generally accepted standard for criminal court is "beyond a reasonable doubt" and for civil court (where protective orders fall) is "the preponderance of evidence". The whole purpose of a PO is to prevent moving a situation from civil court to criminal court.

But then again what do I know I'm just an amateur googlephile wannabe. And freely admit it.
