Electing Judges Isn’t My Job

Posted on

101914_1729_Somedays1.jpgWell, I tried to not watch the hearings, but clips kept appearing on my news feeds so I finally relented and watched Kavanaugh’s opening statement. I was only going to stay for that but got caught up in the drama. I hate that in me just as I hated what happened to me when I found myself mobs during the 1960’s. Rationality goes out the window and I become impelled by the mob’s emotions.

I resent being controlled and manipulated by outsiders, and in those ‘demonstrations’ I quickly saw there were agitators spread throughout the mob, and those same agitators showed up for all the mobs and effectively steered it. I wanted no part of that charade.

But I was moved by Kavanaugh fighting back. He sure wasn’t getting any support from the Republicans, and it wasn’t until Lindsey Graham blasted the hearing that I saw any real support. John McCain must have returned Lindsey’s balls to him before he died.

However, in the midst of all this inner turmoil, dawn came around again and slowly pushed aside the gossamer threads of sleepiness, and the coffee mug soothed sleep swollen fingers as it released its soothing spell in my innards. I can move on to the more important but less dramatic things in my own little world. Happy dogs greet the day with vigorous chasing and games of tug-o-war. Snooks voice raises in comment above the thumping and growling.

And I am reminded that Washington politics is not for me. Reality for me is the mowing of grass, the preparations for winter, the fallen mantlepiece that I need to re-glue and re-hang. Dirty laundry needs to be taken to the laundry basket, and preparations need to be made for Shabbat so that it is truly a day of rest. That is my role in life. Others can elect a judge and engage in reprehensible acts while doing it. That, thankfully, is not my job.

Good morning.

        *sigh!* I am afraid that my misspent youth has finally caught up with me. I am no longer transporting. I am now one of those old bustards who drives to the post office at 15mph and leaves his left blinker on.

    I watched the complete hearings and wish I hadn’t… but probably for different reasons than yours.
    I think we can both agree that none of this is ultimately good for the country though…

      Agree … but then I felt much the same way with Bork, then Thomas, and now Kavanaugh. Each one became a bigger horror than the preceding one, and I kept thinking it couldn’t possibly get worse. But no, the left reached into its bag of scum each time and managed to out slime the previous one. I can hardly wait ’til the next one. The only thing left undone is to go after the nominees children …

    It sounds like you have your head on straight, and you are focused on the good in your life. I’m in a state of disbelief and anger, but that can be expressed elsewhere. Not here.

    Happy weekend to you and Snookums.

      I have nowhere to express the depth of my outrage. If there were any reasonable way I could damage this charade, I would. As it stands, I can only stand by mutely while they pile horror upon horror on a just man, wipe their mouths and feel proud as they dance with glee in the slime. It is like being a Jew on kristallnacht to me. I can only watch.

    I love that last paragraph, there is hope 🙂 But I am with you in the outrage over what these demon (crats) have done and how they treated an honorable man. I did watch every single minute of those hearings yesterday. I think you can guess we think a lot alike about anything political, but in the end, my little world is calm and peaceful and I have to hold on to the things that matter, the little things in my life like family and faith and birds 😀
