    I cannot believe that you need clarification on this, UL. There is a large world outside the US in which women are sexually abused, denied access to legal services, revenue earning and support, denial of personal rights and judged by a largely male hierarchy that makes the rules that perpetuate the patriarchy. How much of this is still true in the US today?

    Oh, I think the pussy hats do their work against the Democratic Party, so I always like to see stuff like that unfurl.

    Oh, it's true in the US, to be sure.

    IL, the men I know of in these groups are overwhelmingly siding with Kavanaugh.....perhaps you've read I've chosen to side with Dr. Ford? Social acceptance means very little to me, something of which I am very grateful for, and I've always been one to vote my reality regardless of what other people think. This time I'm siding with the woman.....surprised? Rob

    Rob, Flake grew a set and is recommending no vote until a week investigation by the FBI.

    i have my doubt to what extent it's really true. "denied access to legal services, revenue earning and support, denial of personal rights" I don't know. Certainly in some parts of the country it is hard to get an abortion, yes it's supposed to be national policy but has become state policy.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    To be clear, the Judiciary Committee voted to advance the nomination. Jeff Flake suggested the Senate floor vote by delayed for no longer than one week to allow the FBI to conduct a time and scope limited investigation. I think this was a move simply to pacify the Democrats as I would expect nothing new be gleaned from their investigation.

    The American Bar Association and the Yale law school have called for a delay and further investigation of Kavanaugh.
    Lindsey Graham apparently wants Sessions' job. He doesn't care what Trump calls him--as long as he calls.
    The funny thing is, Trump's not in charge--he's just a cardboard cutout. It's big money and the Russians pulling the strings.

    He didn't grow a set: he's retiring.

    I don't always agree with DH, but I do agree with term limits. Flake has no vested interest in toeing the Republican Party line.

    I know he is retiring and that is why I expected him to act and not vote right now.
