Well-written!  Interesting.  There is a video on youtube to go with it.  I always thought that he was the most important member of the cast.  Schwimmer was first and was the rock, Perry was the most versatile, problem-filled, and endearing.

I’d like to read more about why roles are scarce.  I don’t see why that would last.

This is a very tough thing to do for me these days.  I have to read (learn) instead of write.

How did he know that?

“He looked it up.”

I have to believe her.  But it still seems like she is being programmed.

For those who don’t know, I followed the story.  It goes back to the father who looks like Paul Williams.  He was working day and night killing bugs in the town of 5,000.  The wife had been removed from the home for abuse (kid-reported and convicted).

They are going to win.  The Culleoka Unit is going to pay and the John Grisham wannabe was on the trail right from the start.  Tad does not have it anymore.  Who else can you sue?

I didn’t know.  I thought the collecting of rocks a little cute and a lot pathetic.  No, it was to convict him in every state.

Even the sentence is a paradox because his Christian suffering was getting the better of him.  It is going to be a long time and he is going to be close to an old man.  Plus, he will be a changed man.

I would like to be there as a fly on the wall.  And I do mean innocuous fly.

No, I do not want to do that.  It could be something close to a lynching, and that is not right either.

It is impossible to calculate the percentage, but the teenager is not completely innocent.  Perhaps her role is extremely small–something like .01%–but it is still there.  She packed.  She got in the car.  She was vulnerable and (barely) underage, but she did go.

I believe she was 16.  By months, in one of the states or across them all, she was barely under the sexual-consent age.

That is one of the things the 20/20 piece worked around, sex.  The off-the-gridders in No. Cal. said they were going at it frequently.

Just imagine if everyone immoral is convicted.  And do not leave it up to high school classmates to judge.

Anyway, girls and boys know about those things most places.

Interesting.  If you want to be brainwashed, is it brainwashing?  If you are an adult, and you allow yourself to be brainwashed, is it brainwashing?

 

Favorite show:  American Greed.  Fraud is the hardest crime to prove because you have to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, intent to deceive.

Kavanaugh

I don’t usually do this.  I would rather write about people and corruption.

I saw part of the hearings live and I was surprised.  Shocked is too much.  Disappointed.

The woman was rock-solid.  The judge was not.  “I like beer” he said over and over.

I didn’t like him.  I thought about all the people, attorneys, defendants, and others he must have berated as a judge.  Often they probably deserved it.  But I doubt anyone can be right all the time.

He appeared as a spoiled, used to getting his way, angry person.  He appeared ignorant of the whole process that he must keep his cool and look like a supreme court judge.  What’s more (and remember, I don’t know a thing) he appeared as someone who is capable of getting drunk and violent.

The more I think about it, he appeared as someone who is guilty.

How guilty?  If he really didn’t make a habit of it…  If he isn’t that sort of man…  Why didn’t he just say ‘I remember her.  She is an attractive woman.  We frolicked a little.”

It seemed to me that he could very well have an angry pattern.  I see no lies in the women, but it is always a possibility.  I don’t know because I’ve never been accused of any such thing.  I have also never sought a high-level political confirmation.

What I saw is a man who became very angry, emotional, and unsettled during a legitimate questioning session.  From what I saw he is unfit for long-term duty on the highest court.
