Billy,

I guess she reads or views no media at all since it's all over conservative news as well.

As smart as she is I can't see her voting for Trump unless she is really and truly in the dark.

Who said she voted for Trump? The women is a constitutional scholar and apparently one of the brightest legal minds on the subject in the country. She's tried and proven. Knowing the constitution and law as well as she does, it's obvious she couldn't vote for Biden so, you may be on to something there  ;D

She is likely briefed by her staff on key developments,  Also, her husband is able to speak.  She has friends too, imagine that. 

Many ways to learn about the news.  In fact, given the bias of news sources such as CNN, it is perhaps better to obtain news from someone who can synthesize the issues and events.

So you think being smart and voting for Trump are mutually exclusive.  Your comment is right up there with Hillary's "basket of deplorables."

[Edit to add: I misunderstood who BC was referring to. I mistakenly thought
he was referencing Billy's wife when I made the comment below. However,
millions of intelligent Americans voted for Trump and against the Dem's
because of their antics and hypocrisy]


My wife can't vote but she is appalled at democrats and their years long
infatuation with the Russians stealing the Election from poor Hillary.

It was a hoax. Ask 1000 Russians and 998 of them believe it was a hoax.

Ask any Russian that you aren't married to if they think that Russian 
businessmen paid Bill Clinton $500K to listen to him speak or if it was
a bribe.

Then tell each of those Russians that say bribe THEY are the stupid
ones living in the dark.

Which is probably why he's willing to take a knee to those who are felons and thugs.

BLM is not in Italy.  However, Europe has some radical parties, both on the left and right, particularly the right.  I could be wrong because I don't follow Euro politics.  Radical they may be, one must respect the fact these fringe parties have been duly elected as part of their national parliamentarian elections. 

EU members, correct me if I am wrong, but I like this aspect of your multi-party system.

Mitt Romney would be considered a right wing extremist in most of Europe
at minimum he would be described as far right.

Pea brain Mitch McConnell aka the Turtle decides to push the stimulus package
through before the Barrett vote. I mean what could go wrong??! Obviously he should
do the Barrett vote first and then make sure that anybody who voted against Barrett
had zero pork in the bill.

McConnell says he’ll try to move $500 billion stimulus
package before Barrett vote

And who/what source would they use? Where do you go for 'neutral' news? Heck, I'd be interested in sources you are confident in.  I'm all over the place, from CNN to Fox, to AlJazeera, to RT, even some of the more radical conservative radio shows.

What's your top 3 that you have confidence in and 'trust'.

No, my statement was in the context of how a jurist would evaluate the choices, using the deliberation process she described in the hearing.  I'm sure she can smell BS a mile away after years on the bench.

Plenty of BLM protests here Gator, albeit not armed and for the most part non-violent.

Parliamentary based democracy is quite interesting.  I remember the entry point of the Green party in Germany a long while back which was a very 'radical' concept back then. They now enjoy a sizable number of seats in the Bundestag. What I see is that when even the most 'radical' parties today are given a seat, they finally get the gist of things.  Mainly that alone they can do nothing so have to talk and move towards other parties to have any say at all.  Does not mean they are powerless as they can make up a part of a majority coalition - or can be ostracized if they cannot find ways to work together with other parties.  IOW they gain a bit of humility along with accepting parliamentary rules and decorum.

I do find it much more conducive for productively working together with others and for achieving compromise than our de-facto two-party system.

The more the merrier I say...

P.S.  One item you may find very interesting is that the election of top officials in parlament is via secret ballot and not roll-call voting.

CNBC (business) is only news during the day.  For breaking  news, switch between Fox and CNN (50-50), simultaneously resolving differences as best as I can.  Sports or a good film with wifey always take precedent on  news shows.  If a news show, Fox's Laura Ingraham, "The Five", and Carlson (sometimes).   CNN"s GPS (Fareed).

Thanks for the parliamentarian explanation.  Much value in what you outline. 

I need to ponder about US parties if we had the same.  Quick reaction, dividing both parties by three. 

     -  Democrats would be split into three:  Moderates, Greenies and Socialists, with the latter two banding together for votes. 

     -  Republicans:  Libertarians, Religious, Tea Party, Business, Fiscal Conservatives.  I know, that's five.

None of those. Although there is likely a shed of truth in all of them but with spin in the direction that they want you to believe unquestioned. Do not think for yourself.  Unfortunately in this day and time "truth in journalism" is hard to find and even harder to recognize when you do see it. The world has been dumb downed with the help and assistance of the very media most trust to report the truth. If you want truth, you have to do the research to reach it. You also have to have the ability to think for ones self and separate the wheat from the chafe.

The most unvarnished source I have found is http://www.theepochtimes.com/ but you have to handle it as you would any other source

Sen. Dianne Feinstein commended Lindsey Graham for how he chaired the Senate Judicial Committee's hearing of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.  The two even hugged, yet remain on polar opposite sides of our divided government.

One would think such bipartisan demeanor would be a welcomed example in Washington, DC.    Not true.  Many on the left are now calling for the the removal of Dianne Feinstein from the Committee because of her kind remarks to Graham.

This was a puzzling moment when Judge Amy Coney Barrett could not clearly answer as to whether or not she knew Trump's efforts and many statements to nominate a Supreme Court Justice who would strike down ACA.

I can't imagine her being that isolated from the goings-on.  I'm not calling her a liar, but do find it hard to swallow.  To answer that she has seen and heard such statements would have been fine and totally understandable.  She must have been really shocked at all the tweet posters and other Trump and GOP statements to that effect.  Ditto regarding abortion.



Not sure what you found puzzling in her response within the context of Harris’ line of questioning. SCOTUS goes into session a week after election so the court will only be with 8 justices if ACB doesn’t get nominated. Trump’s nomination ‘could’ be construed that doing so was to help fulfill their intent to wipe up ACA, and he may have declared verbally or even openly but it doesn’t necessary mean ACB would’ve heard it or aware of it. She did previously testified that this matter, along with points surrounding R v W, that Trump never discussed any of it with her.

Many folks are either insulated from daily newscast especially anything political.

A second group has now called for Feinstein to step down because she called the hearings the best she's ever participated in. The next generation Democratic Party has no tolerance for civility.

RBG could have easily retired when Obama was President but stayed on way to long.  Democrats including RBG thought Hillary would win.  RBG did a lot of good but she hurt her cause by not retiring when 80 years old.

Clarence T. plans to retire if Trump get re-elected or in 4-8 years when a Republican replaces Biden.

Suburban liberal women here in Florida are very much impressed with Amy Barrett, as they should be.
 
Too bad Trump can not answer questions in such a way.   Our government could benefit immensely from having 50,000 Amy's.   

She could swing some votes to Republicans.
