Was it a different era?
As this was going on with the boys of the all boys’ Georgetown Preparatory School in Maryland (boarding school), the first AIDS outbreaks were happening elsewhere, in England, schools were being purged of a “fagging” tradition (older boys having younger boys as servants), and hazing rituals were commonplace in Greek societies in the USA.
“What Happens at Georgetown Prep, Stays at Georgetown Prep.” – Brett Kavanaugh
All good questions. These kinds of house parties were common at the time, especially among the very wealthy families and was the subject in many movies of the era.
For such an important position, a full and proper assessment is warranted. I consider it vetting.
I don’t find it refreshing. I knew of him growing up in the 80s and remember it all.
Daily emotionally charged tweets from the leader of the USA who spends 1/4 of his time golfing with security paid for by tax dollars pulling a scam …
The guy lies at every turn – the extreme of insincerity – and at least 1/3 of the USA believes it all.
But, if #metoo and the exposure of rape culture is a positive result of this unveiling of hypocrasy, then maybe you’re right.
Regardless of the outcome of this (imo disasterous) Supreme Court nominee (whose performance at the teenage girl abortion case and in Trump’s casino anti-worker case, changing legal opinion depending upon whether it is a Democrat or Republican) -
…this opening up of opinions by Republicans in defense of Kavanaugh in a situation in which they know as little as we do — has been very eye opening and a good exposure of collective toxicity.
Boy Brett K. goes to Georgetown Prep, an all boys’ Jesuit high school with golf courses on campus that is a boarding school.
What does economics have to do with agency?
When you’re on top of the world, there is nothing you can’t do.
NOTE: Neil Gorsuch ALSO went to that same school.
Who is coming up for sexual assault charges regarding him?
If they put forward another Georgetown Gorsuch, yes there will be grumbling rightfully but not this circus.
Why does Kavanaugh have a circus around him?
He asks for it. All the way back to Kenneth Starr and Clinton. Trump’s casino case. Trying to block girl who wanted an abortion and he came up with an unreasonable reason for the attempt.
Kavanaugh is wrong for the Court.
It’s not equally wrong. 20 months for no reason vs three weeks so far WITH reasons.
The guy is serving a life sentence as a Justice.
So will America.
What makes Kavanaugh especially suitable as a lifetime Supreme Court Justice, as one of the 9?
Preventing a mistake is always better, even if it takes two more weeks
It would but nothing happened in 20 months.
Was there an investigation? I don’t think there was even a hearing. Just blocked.
Fed govt is doomed at this point anyway. I’ll focus on my state election.
