Kavanaugh's lie is no longer a minor thing.

A 17 year old who is drinking beer illegally knows heís drinking beer illegally. He didnít mistaking my think he was 18 and thus able to drink legally. Then, BEFORE he turned 18 the legal drinking age was RAISED to 21.

Kavanaugh wasnít mistaken when he said he was legally drinking at 18 because he was NEVER able to drink legally during the period at issue.

If he is incapable of telling the truth now about an otherwise minor wrong as a minor, why would anyone expect him to be honest about a sexual assault?


Any questions to Kavanaugh about his perjury?

You might guess from my signature line that I'm on the cynical side of the table, so my presumption is that Republicans will confirm Kavanaugh regardless of what comes out of the hearing.

I was too angry to listen to all of the hearing, but I'm curious as to whether anyone asked Kavanaugh about his perjury?


re Kavanaugh: Don't forget the perjury!

If the discussion becomes solely about the attempted rape allegation, the issue for confirmation, as with Clarence Thomas, could boil down to whether there is irrefutable proof of his guilt or innocence - a damned near impossible hurdle. The issue of Kavanaugh's PERJURY should not now be given short shrift when the reality is that his perjury alone should disqualify him from ANY court.

Huckabee talks using the Logan Act against John Kerry!

Will someone remind these unabashed hypocrites that Reagan was caught asking Iran not to release the American hostages so Reagan could use the issue in his campaign for the White House, and Nixon was caught asking North Vietnam to abandon peace talks with the US and South Vietnam so Nixon could use the war issue in his campaign for the White House. Neither was charged with a Logan Act violation and BOTH were rewarded with the presidency. Republicans have a lot of f*cking nerve even suggesting that John Kerry should be prosecuted under the Logan Act for meeting with a FORMER Iranian minister.

FYI: The Logan Act (1 Stat. 613, 18 U.S.C. ß 953, enacted January 30, 1799) is a United States federal law that criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized persons with foreign governments having a dispute with the United States.

A frightening thought regarding Mueller.

Imagine what would have happened if someone lacking Mueller's ethical and moral fortitude had been appointed? Someone like Judge Kenneth Starr, for example, would have closed his investigation in a matter of weeks, and the republican traitors would yet again have gotten away with a host of crimes.

Yes, America was THAT close to Putin's republican supporters getting a cake walk instead of a perp walk.

I know it ain't over, but at least Mueller is taking his oath of office seriously, and his investigation will hopefully make those criminals think twice in the future before selling America out for a few gold coins.

Kavanaugh's record of dishonesty should be ENOUGH to disqualify him for ANY court.

In a sane world, where judges are expected to be honorable, Kavanaugh's record of dishonesty should be enough to disqualify him from any court in the land, particularly from any federal court and especially from the Supreme Court. That he is still even being considered is an outrage that speaks to the decline of our judicial system.

I finally got high!

I watched, somewhat jealously, as my friends got high in high school, but I always passed. I don't mean as in puff-puff-pass, I mean as in thanks but no thanks. And I laughed along with them as they recounted their many tales of getting high: like the time they were smoking then went for a walk and got lost then later realized that they had been in the neighbor's yard the whole time. Yes, the neighbor's yard right next to the house one of them had grown up in; the yard they could SEE from the neighbor's yard.

Anyway. I finally tried pot in grad school. I took a couple of puffs then waited for hilarity to ensue. Nothing. Like, nothing. I'm a big guy, so maybe I needed to truly INHALE before the mojo would kick in. Oh well, I thought.

Then a few months ago I tried chocolate edibles with low THC and high CBD. Made me sleepy. Meh.

Then I went to a festival last week and decided, what the hell, I'm here surrounded by friends and kind-hearted hippies, so . . . I tried a high THC ginger chew. About 10 minutes later my heart started racing. Fuck, I thought. Ok, I'm done. This clearly isn't for me. 20 more minutes later and there was definitely a stumble in my walk. Then we started playing a card game and . . . and then I got high. FINALLY! I got muthafuckin' high!

The best way I can describe my first high with three friends who were also high, is that it was sort of like a series of shared, micro-blackouts. Like, when we played a game and the same person goes three times when you're only supposed to go one turn before moving on to the next player but none of us - NONE OF US! - realizes the person has taken too many turns until the third round and . . . an hour or so of laughter so deep you think you're gonna suffocate 'cause you can't breathe.

Fun times.

Now, a week later, my full brain hasn't quite fully kicked back in. It could be my imagination, but I don't think I've been as sharp with work stuff. Spell-check, hear my cry!

I'm really glad I finally got high. No regrets whatsoever. Would I try it again? Sure. Maybe. Probably.

I'm told that the high from smoking is different from the high of edibles, but for now, I think I'm good with my experience.

Holy hell. I just remember that a couple of years ago I was dating a woman and we tried some kind of liquid THC together. Totally forgot about that. I think I took too much because I just got nauseous then she got sexually frustrated because my little feller lost any interest whatsoever in partying. Now I remember why I chose to forget that experience.

Did I tell you that I finally got high?
