If at any time since Robert Bork the democrat party had really cared about a true hearing and not an attempted character assassination, I’d have thought the hearings were worthwhile. Given the last 30-35 years hearings of a republican nominated candidate are pretty much useless, they should cut them out and just vote. The republicans (for better or worse) don’t treat democrat nominees like this.
Don’t give the the democrats a platform for demagoguing.
The totalitarian left, whether socialists, communists, or fascists pretending to be anti-fascist, is coming closer to power in the United States today. If Joe Biden wins in November and the democrat party takes the Senate and keeps the House, a laundry list of items will be immediately on the agenda:
Eliminating the filibuster. Sen. Schumer has already stated eliminating it is on the table. This will turn the Senate into the House without any need for consensus. and provide the opportunity for all kinds of mischief, including the following.
Giving citizenship to around 20 million people who have entered the country illegally, after blocking all President Trump’s attempts to fix the issue over his first term.
Packing the Supreme Court by adding additional seats.
“Hate speech” is a term used by fascists, socialists, communists and other authoritarians to shut people up – when they can’t win an argument that involves liberty vs control, they want people to be shutdown and shut up. It is a slippery, subjective concept that allows those defining it to silence those with whom they disagree.
Always look to see who the arbiter of what is “hate speech” and you’ll see who will benefit from it in terms of wealth and power.
How about all these people trying to “raise awareness” actually DO something instead of “advocating” for someone else to do something? Does anyone really think that there are more than 50 people in the USA who are not “aware” and need to have their “awareness raised”? Stop “advocating” and do something positive yourself. Go build a house for people with Habit for Humanity. Go get a job and work and then donate the proceeds to the people who need it. Go plant a garden (Mike Bloomberg says it is easy) and donate the food you grow to people who need it. Go buy a gun and protect people. Go help clean up stores and property damaged by riots. Go back to school, get an MD and help people in need with their medical needs. Get a JD and represent these people in court. Go to the police academy and become an officer so you can do it right. Get an accounting degree, engineering or something like that and use it to help. People need to get off their behinds and out from behind the keyboard, off instagram, Facebook, twitter etc, and actually do something instead of sitting around demanding someone else do something.
Stop accepting that more horrendous incidents like “George Floyd” will happen, get out from behind the keyboard and do something. Stop senseless death like that by taking action, accepting the challenge and fixing things instead of expecting “someone else” to do so.
If you look at our history, we’ve been through some terrible ordeals. This is tough. People are suffering. People are dying. It’s inconvenient from a societal standpoint, from an economic standpoint to go through this, but this is going to be the answer to our problems.

So economic devastation, food insecurity and depression is merely “inconvenient”.
New Hampshire Democrats prefer Socialist to Clinton – and Clinton to Trump in the 2016 election. So much for “LIVE FREE OR DIE.” Perhaps New Hampshire needs to change their motto to “Free stuff or die”.
One other question about the so-called “New Hampshire Advantage” in trust law. If you are considering setting up a trust in New Hampshire advantage, make sure you have a flee clause in there because if the state goes left, “free money” from trusts domiciled in NH will no doubt be a big target.
Attorneys and clients who want to use NH for their trust, make sure you are prepared.
However, it should be noted that the same philosophy that is behind Warren’s quest for a wealth tax, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s quest for a 70% top marginal rate is the same ‘You work and toil and earn bread, and I’ll eat it’ philosophy that Lincoln fought in the old Democrat South. Likewise, the same promise of ‘free’ stuff was at the base of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Mussolini, and Hitler’s promises when they came to power. (Obviously not the concentration camps.)
What is disgusting is that when Reagan said “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth.”, the US was #1 in freedom around the world, last year the US was #17th! (Or 18th depending on which you follow). A very sad state of affairs. The Founders would be disgusted.
