Dr. Ford is being truthful

As a victim of sexual assault myself, the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has triggered emotions that are not welcomed. However, I felt I had to hear her story so I would know without a doubt whether or not she was being truthful. I am convinced that Dr. Ford is being truthful.

The details of the event itself, as well as the emotional trauma expressed throughout her life since this assault, are beyond question. Those of us who have experienced sexual assaults are more than a little  familiar with these lifelong effects.

Every accusation deserves a proper investigation. Period.

Dr. Ford oath


I am confused and disappointed by the number of women who have taken this opportunity to share memes and jokes at the expense of sexual assault victims. I can only assume that they are so brainwashed by their male republican counterparts that they can no longer react with objectivity, let alone with compassion.

I am not angry with them.

I feel sorry for them.

If you think this is funny, then unfriend me and don't bother to comment on this post, because I no longer have any respect for your opinion.

Surely we can find a more suitable candidate for our Supreme Court.

If you're going to claim that this is a setup, then I would remind you that the same thing did NOT happen to Neil McGill Gorsuch, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court (nominated by President Donald Trump to succeed Antonin Scalia), You can read that post here. 



The following excerpt is from:  

I stand with Dr. Christine Ford, do you? 

 From a psychological perspective, the danger for her (assuming she is protected from physical threats) is that the hearings will re-traumatize her to an extent that will cost her months or even years of suffering. Great national issues tend to casually crumble up and trash the people caught as symbols in their midst. (Monica Lewinsky has written and spoken poignantly on this subject.)

California professor says it was her ‘civic duty’ to come forward about Supreme Court nominee

Compare Gorsuch to Kavanaugh

To those who claim that Liberals have somehow orchestrated these character attacks on Kavanaugh, let me remind you that Neil McGill Gorsuch, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court (nominated by President Donald Trump to succeed Antonin Scalia), had no such attacks.

Surely there is a more suitable candidate available.

Wake up.

America has become morally bankrupt

While I am not the least bit surprised that Trump dictated his medical report which his doctor then signed, I am now more convinced than ever that America has become morally bankrupt.

When I was applying to college in the 70s, I had to have two people provide references. It was a popular Southern Baptist school in my state, and I guess they wanted to make sure I was an appropriate student for their dogma.

The letters had to be mailed by the writer of said letters.

At the end of my application process, I had to sign a document that stated everything I had submitted was true. If it were to be found out that I had lied, I would be subject to dismissal.

We were expected to be truthful and honorable in how we presented ourselves.

I guess we expected more from our university students in the seventies than we expect from our president today.




How sad.



Dr. Harold Bornstein needs to tell the truth about his patient. 

He can start by answering the following questions.

  • Did the president lie?
  • Did the president exaggerate?
  • Did the president omit pertinent information?
  • Why did Dr. Bornstein agree to this "doctored" letter?

This doctor needs to submit a new, "undoctored" letter regarding the health of Trump. 

Let's be truthful. No one believed for a second that a physician actually claimed that Trump would be the "healthiest president ever!" We all knew who spoke those words. 

Now that it's been admitted, perhaps we can learn the truth.

Trump attacking Amazon

Do not be fooledIt's been three weeks since I opined on Trump attacking Amazon.

This morning, while reading the news, I stumbled onto an article written on Fortune.com, in October of 2017, which explains everything.

It would appear that Trump may have a grudge against Bezos, or maybe he's just jealous.

Whatever the reason, the facts seem to add fodder to the fuel that many (or most) of Trump's actions as President, are of self-centered benefit to Trump, rather than being beneficial for the nation as a whole.

And I quote...
Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s CEO, took the number two spot on the Forbes list for the second straight year, with an $81.5 billion net worth.
Meanwhile, Trump moved from 156th on the list down to 248th. 

Trump’s real estate holdings, specifically those in New York City, have taken a big hit in the past year, as retail values are struggling in response to Amazon’s e-commerce gains.
It would appear that Amazon’s strategy of e-commerce over brick and mortar retail is winning, and that is having an effect on real estate values." Kerry Dolan, Forbes assistant managing editor.

I love it when the universe randomly provides explanations when you least expect it.

The timing wasn't my decision, but it's the thought that counts. 



Good things come to those who read - facts - and learn from them.
