Thoughts on the #MeToo Movement?
« on: September 20, 2018, 09:45:51 AM »
I was at a Bachelor party and the most common topic was about the #MeToo movement.

The pros are apparent.

What are some of the cons?

How does the jury figure out what the truth is?

Thoughts on Kavanaugh’s situation?

I think I would have to call the Kavanaugh situation more like the Kavanaugh circus. It is embarrassing to watch grown adults who believe they are so much more enlightened than the rest of us act like like juveniles. That applies to both sides of the aisle.

If one watches the rebuttal given by Judge Clarence Thomas at the end of his confirmation hearing it truly shows how pathetic these hearings have become.

The live testimonial from the accusers today is going to be exciting to watch!

They made a mockery of the process. Very embarrassing for us as country. Aren’t we supposed to set the example for others to follow ? If that is true then we didn’t set a very good example today. They used the accuser as a pawn to further a political agenda which means in their eyes she is disposable..

Sam, I like you buddy, but I can't remember the last time I went to a wedding where social justice and politics were the big discussion point. I'm a Gen-Xer... and when I was growing up, we were friends with everyone. I have friends throughout the entire spectrum from crazy Socialist lefties, to radical ultra-Religious righties, and even some who are fiercely in the middle. When we get together, we may talk about things and get into politics from time to time... but there's never this hand-wringing and pearl-clutching that I see today from many of the younger generation. My friends, we poke fun at each other, but we don't take it seriously. We all accept and understand the fact that, while we may have different views on things, we generally all want the same things, and we all want the United States to succeed.

What has happened in the past 2 decades that has caused young people to be so caught up in this radical fervor? Is it social media?
