The article here points out, rightly, that education doesn’t always equate with moral behavior. It also should never be used to excuse, justify, or whitewash IMMORAL behavior, as we see Kavanaugh trying to do, this week in hearings meant to decide his future standing as a Supreme Court Justice.
It should go without saying, but there are all sorts of bad actors who have attended prestigious universities. The convicted insider trader Raj Rajaratnam, the former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling, and the convicted killer Lyle Menendezwere all admitted to Ivy League institutions. The Unabomber, who killed three and injured 23 with letter bombs in the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s, went to Harvard. That doesn’t mean that Kavanaugh is among them, but it is a reminder that attending a prestigious school isn’t in and of itself revealing of anyone’s moral character in any direction. It is telling, however, that Kavanaugh pointed to his credentials when trying to prove his own.
Kavanaugh isn’t on the Supreme Court, yet, but has a career under his belt as a judge, and now his future judgments are going to be called into question, because he raped several girls, while he was at school. And he was not alone.
Attention rapists and other predators:
Someone ALWAYS sees you. Even if it’s just your victim, (and there’s never just one). Even if you are POSITIVE that you’ve only harmed that ONE person, you’ve actually done irreparable harm to all of Mankind.
She will never trust men again.
Her family and everyone around her will suffer for it, even if they don’t know why for years after. She will never be able to give to them, again as selflessly, as she did before you assaulted her, and don’t fool yourself that it was about anything but a power trip for you. Nice people (with a modicum of self control) don’t FORCE their guests to drink tea, just because they’ve gone through the trouble of making tea.
Even my dogs have this kind of impulse control!!
I tell them “Leave it” and they don’t touch my food, so I really don’t understand why you men, from the time you are 3 can’t do the same. Researchers have, after all, proved that dogs think at the level of toddlers.
Now back to what I was saying, about someone always knowing:
Cosby had his staff that enabled his serial rape, so they knew, and they should be jailed for aiding and abetting. I don’t know if they were. tRump had staff that aided and abetted his serial rape in his younger days, and now that’s all come out, and people no longer trust ANY of his cabinet, because of it. We know that he hand picked them, for their lack of scruples, because if they had had any, he wouldn’t be in the Oval Office.
This is just one of our responses to the sham that is the “hearing” of Kavanaugh and his victims:
Our other response we are saving for November, when we vote all of you rapists, and greedy brown nosing, privileged, white males out of office, for making policies that would have our forefathers rolling over in their graves. Your policies that are making our country poorer, by cutting out programs like heating assistance for the elderly, and affordable healthcare, in favor of fat cat CEOs and the NRA. You’ve stolen from Social Security, calling it (wrongly) an “entitlement”.
My parents have paid into that fund, all their lives, and THEY DESERVE TO HAVE BACK WHAT THEY PAID, when they retire. That’s what it was there for. They knew that until they needed it, it would be helping others to live out their retirements, so they were also being………..wait for it………..ALTRUISTIC.
I happen to know that there isn’t ONE of you, on Capitol Hill that is CAPABLE of emulating that sort of altruism, simply because in the two years since this last inauguration, I haven’t seen it happen.
I’ve seen you allow and then cover a treasonous farce of an election which put a predator in office. I’ve seen you allow this clown to begin trade wars that will leave our US economy to try to pick itself up out of the dirt, for years to come. I’ve seen you trample, into the ground, all progress made in the past DECADE in the way of Civil Rights, and now I and the rest of the world are WATCHING you victimize Doctor Ford, AGAIN, and ignore other victims of Kavanaugh’s drunken delusions of being some god’s gift to woman kind, when he was in school.
Women are not safe, under this administration.
Poor Americans are not safe, under this administration.
DREAMERS are not safe under this administration.
Black Americans are not safe under this administration.
Immigrants and their tiny babies are not safe under this administration.
Indigenous People are not safe under this administration.
Old people are not safe under this administration.
Students are not safe under this administration.
Muslim Americans are not safe under this administration.
The working class is not safe under this administration.
This administration is: GUILTY OF TREASON AGAINST THE COUNTRY IT IS SUPPOSED TO SERVE!!
RISE UP, AMERICA AND SUE YOUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS FOR TREASON AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY.
They are guilty, and bringing state lawsuits against them, may be the only way to check their well planned destruction of our country. They’re doing it, methodically, by cutting out welfare programs that we need, and by turning us against each other.
Black Americans are NOT YOUR ENEMY.
Muslim Americans are NOT YOUR ENEMY.
Immigrants and their babies are NOT YOUR ENEMY.
Indigenous Peoples are NOT YOUR ENEMY.
Elder Americans are NOT YOUR ENEMY.
American students are NOT YOUR ENEMY.
They have done you NO HARM.
These people have only boosted the American Economy. Businesses pay more taxes than individuals, and many immigrants own businesses. Many of them started Fortune 500 companies. (About half the ones that exist in America, Today). They gave us: Automatic Transmission; Universities; tvs; ATMs; peanut butter; Higher Math; Vaccines; Plastic; The Theory of Relativity; Yahoo; Google and the Algorithm; Refrigerators and blue jeans.
I HEREBY CHALLENGE EVERY POLITICIAN TO GO WITHOUT ONE OF THOSE THINGS FOR A MONTH.
Since you hate immigrants enough to allow your Toddler- In- Chief to put them in cages, and sell their babies to the lowest bidder with the biggest cage, I’m sure that you can do without their inventions for a month or so.
Alternatively, you can sit,on your thumbs, drooling, and look like the knuckle dragging hypocrites that you are.
Better yet: Grow up grow spines and scruples, and admit that you covered up a treasonous election, and that you sold out our administration to a Russian puppet and rapist, and allow us to annul this “presidency” and wash the stain from the American reputation that this administration has put there.
It is the stain of immigrant blood and that of their babies in cages or now adopted to American families, never to be found again, by their parents.
It is the stain of the blood of hard working Americans who have died, as a direct result of your taking away their affordable healthcare, enacted by Obama- a REAL President.
It is the stain of blood of students who will die trying to get out from under student debt, put on them by Betsy DeVos.
It is the stain of blood of students who will die at the hands of their peers, because they are gay, because of Betsy DeVos and her refusal to uphold policies written by Obama to protect them and all students.
It is the stain of blood of students who will continue to be gunned down in their schools, because the GOP sold itself to the NRA, long ago.
It is the stain of blood of Black people and people who look Latino, who are senselessly beaten to death by cops, at a greater rate than ever, since YOU TREASONOUSLY INSTALLED a known bigot, in the Oval Office.
Those blood stains are on YOUR hands, and YOU
