On the Kavanaugh confirmation question - “By my read, we have two witnesses who both profess 100 percent certainty of their positions—one whose testimony is wholly credible and marginally corroborated in a number of respects and the other whose testimony is not credible on a number of important atmospheric points surrounding the alleged event.”

"If the Supreme Court had not long devoted itself to concocting judicial rationales for political power grabs, there would not be so much hatred and fear surrounding the Kavanaugh nomination. Because of the deference Court decisions receive, citizens view court nominees as the ultimate czars of whether they will be forcibly disarmed, stripped of their property, treated like prisoners when traveling, or denied sovereignty over their own bodies."

Why the police need to stop using violent SWAT team tactics against otherwise non-violent people. Any human process is error prone and in these over-charged situations, the results can be deadly.

Here is something to think about - [URL]http://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-fg-al-qaeda-survive-20180910-story.html[/URL]

So why is Al Qaida stronger than ever? The US military, the strongest military by far on the planet, and perhaps ever in the history of the human species, has been unable to suppress them. Why is that?

Sobering and perhaps informative to think.
