People don't really believe the politicians actually write legislation, do they? I mean, we're talking about people who think islands will capsize if additional military personnel are stationed on them...
"People"? Do you have a mouse in your pocket? It was ONE person who thought that.

Re: Anonymous article on MSN of "resistance" insid

What many people are unaware of is that, every person has his or her own peculiar way of speaking and writing. All people need to find out who the anonymous person is, is to compare texts for words and grammar with texts written by people in the Administration and voila you will soon find out who is the "Anonymous" source.
the way a person writes is like a fingerprint, not two people write in the exact same manner.

I doubt it's Pence, but who knows.
Someone used the word "lodestar" to purposefully implicate Pence and to throw the attention away from someone else. FTR, I believe that letter is legitimate. I just find it shameful that this is happening. I don't particularly like President Trump, but he is our President. When Congress publically undermined Obama last term(s), it was bad for our country. It's happening to Trump and it is still bad for our country. Sometimes, I wonder what it will take for a sense of normalcy to return to our country.

Re: Anonymous article on MSN of "resistance" insid

I don't often agree with Senator Graham, but he was speaking during the hearing yesterday and going over each SCOTUS nominee hearing and the votes from each during his years in Congress.

Can you believe Congress voted Antonin Scalia 98-0? Not a single "No" vote against who was arguably the most conservative SCOTUS Justice.

Anthony Kennedy was confirmed 97-0.

Even the liberal matriarch Ruth Bader Ginsberg was voted 96-3. Only three Republicans opposed one of the most liberal SCOTUS Justices.

Those numbers have tightened, with each side voting less about whether the person is qualified and more about the ideology of the nominee.

Senator Graham's point was that Congress should vote solely on the qualification of the nominee. He said the elected POTUS has the right and responsibility to nominate who they wish...and that means it will likely be someone with their political ideology. Elections have consequences. The Democrats lost. Trump is POTUS, so he can nominate who he wishes, regardless of who is being replaced.

The Democrats are whining that Kavanaugh is too conservative to replace the moderate Kennedy. That's not how it works.

McConnell did what he did and I don't think it was necessarily right, but it happened. And so the "fight" from the left is to be expected.
