Making the Monkeys Look the Part

I hope for the day when we can do a Supreme Court nomination and confirmation straight up without all of the political grandstanding and acting for the camera and the nuts back home, yes, the nuts – that’s who put most of those jerks there, the nuts and idiots. Sorry for the name calling, but it is appropriate here.

We should find the best and brightest legal minds in the country and not people with agendas to suit the hacks and jerks. The worst comes out in these confirmation hearings, not of the nominees, but from the Senators that should never have been elected.

Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson was very skillful in making the monkeys look the part. I think we are witnessing one of the “best and the brightest” show exactly that.

I am a Vermonter, been one all my life. That just about tells you all you need to know. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. There is a lot in the world I do not understand. My writing is my attempt to wrap my head around much that is swirling around me. Some time ago gasoline pumps changed to the way they look now. I had stopped to fill my Jeep and I could not get the gas to pump to save my life. I went inside and complained to the attendant. She knew me and said, "Ed, the whole world is changing and if you don't figure out the changes you are going to fall off the earth as it spins around." Well, I am not always successful figuring out the changes, but my writing is my way of working through some of them. I hope you enjoy.
