I hope this thread is satire or at least tounge-in-cheek. I can say I saw ANYTHING buy "God like intelligence" within that man. I gave him the
benefit of the doubt the whole time, and don't give a lot of credence to the "evidence" (can't say that with a straight face) presented by Ford from
her demanor to the lack of recall of things even less than a week ago such as whether the polygraph (which was SOOO long and SOOO scary) was on the
day of the funeral or not - among many other things that happened in the last 10 days before the trial. Her testimony should have crushed any
prosecution had they relied on her as their main witness and "evidence".
What was also appearant was her lack of knowledge about things well within the scope of her profession, things a 2nd or 3rd year psychology student
would learn, let alone someone with at least 1 doctorate and possible another and or other degrees in related fields - such as how a polygraph works
and many other things, like how to handle victims of assault/sexual assault and people with PTSD (she wrote a book about this stuff for pete' sake!).
I found her credibility on a professional level to be a 1.5-2 out of 10 and a 5/10 on the "humane" side where much of what how she acted seemed
exactly like acting for the camera and committee. Sure she was "'likeable" but that is b/c we have been programmed by society for the last 40+ years
to be easy on "victims" and those accusing people of a crime, especially victims of sexual assault (well alleged possible sexual assault).
Now Kavanaugh had so many cringe-worthy moments as well that I felt like I was watching a 15 year old argue with an upper-classman, teacher or parent
(the committee members). He showed no depth in his responses and seemed to be stuck in a very juvenile mentality which would be an embarrassment to
have him sitting on the SC even w/o the cloud of sexual assault hanging over his head.
If you think the mid 80's was the "pinnacle" of Ivy league education, especially at Yale, I just have no words for you. It is absolutely clear that
his situation was very much the same as star athletes at large universities where they get pushed through, who knows what kind of help was provided to
him. I know that some schools provide students with tests before hand (whether through the fraternity "file" system) or through TA's that collude
with the professor or student. It happens in every university and college and it makes it impossible for students who are honest to be at the top of
the class. I've seen students who were in the top 2-3% of their class who "cheated" on just about every exam they took in college, especially after
getting into a fraternity with "files".
For those who have never been a part of the greek system (it happens in sports teams to and probably some "clubs" in universities), the students keep
a file for all their classes with the syllabus, all the notes from every day, the quizzes (teachers return them) and tests (returned to students as
well) in addition to a collection of reports, essays and projects students have to do for each class. In my school, each frat/sorority had their own
"file" for each teacher and each class that teacher taught. This is one area where the Greeks stuck together and shared folders between
organizations, no charge, we helped each other out. A very large amount of the members used these from the day they got access and in some cases,
people pledged the fraternity with the best files b/c it gave them the best chance at getting good grades easily. Some pr!cks would hide files from
other brothers in the same class so they would get better grades than them, sign out the folder and say there are files missing from it, but they
would have it and just not share - all to get a higher ranking in the class.
In one fraternity they had files going back over 50 years in about 15 large filing cabinets (these were 5ft wide by 5ft tall and 18-24" deep - and
filled with organized files). this was the holy grail and many people made friends with people in that fraternity just for access to these files. Of
course when access was gained to files you didn't have, copies were made (in the library of course! SMFH - at $.20 per page! this was before scanners
were easily available and recordable CD drives were $800-1,200 each and media was $10-20 per disc).
The thing is that teachers are lazy and their job is to teach. If the student doesn't learn b/c they cheat, it is only hurting their future chances.
Most teachers used the same test semester after semester, they MIGHT change a couple questions on a 20-40 question test but it was often word for
word. Sometimes they would change numbers around, but you could follow the number changes and follow the work on the old tests and get the answer
very easily w/o understanding anything. At this time graphing calculators were allowed (for ANYTHING with math, even super simple stuff) and we had
cables (connect to computer) where we could type in entire tests into files so they could be pulled up at the test. It was a well oiled machine and
it really broke my heart when I learned that there was no way I was going to rank where I should have in the class because there were SO many people
cheating, even people you would NEVER expect. My one friend Peter who was so proud of his 3.95 at graduation, his knickname was "Peter the cheater"
within the fraternity and even with his well paid internships (gained due to his high GPA) he only lasted about 2 years in the professional world
before he had been fired from 3 jobs for incompetence. Many other people had similar issues, failing out of law school, or the MBA program at other
school after graduating at the very top of the class. I never used the files b/c I went to class and understood the subject matter and I was the
first to have my major in my fraternity, so no help there. I also made LOTS of friends because I coudl study with others instead of alone with my
Kav has never been a judge that sat in front of a court, heard trials, dealt with prosecutors and defense attorneys, handled juries or the multitudes
of witnesses. He has been basically a corporate lacky judge who has been handed special cases and tasks which I am fairly certain he was pre-groomed
with the knowledge needed to rule in the "right' was as per his handlers - and this probably stated in grade school or even middle school (what do you
want to be when you grow up).
Do I think what happened to him is right (accusations)? No. Not in the slightest. Did the Dem's handle it appropriately? Not even close from what I
currently know. BUT I saw an entitled unqualified person who shouldn't be on the SC from the way he handled his interrogation - BUT that was a very
stressful and special circumstance and he may be much different than what we saw there.
If we are trying to drain the swamp, I think putting a elite prep school grad (they had a BEAUTIFUL 9 hole golf course in high school on campus), Yale
graduate, then I think we are doing the opposite and entrenching the swamp monsters and giving them a "black knight" who will be there for a long
time. I just have to say that there HAS to be better choices than he.
