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 native Vermonter. I am a child of the 50s, 1951 to be exact. For much of my youth Vermont had one foot in the 19th century and one in the 20th century. The old ways coexisted with a world that was changing. We were sort of insulated in Vermont from much that was happening outside our state, but our little protective bubble was shrinking. My understanding of today has been greatly influenced by the past as the past was always part of our present in the Vermont of the 1950s and even the 60s. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. You will find my thoughts on many topics here. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. I try to write clearly and simply. I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting my site. Take care.
