    Brett K. has been "practically a choir boy" the majority of his life. 

    Adolescence is a period of time when one learns about one's body, (being suddenly driven by hormones,) the effects alcohol, (which can be fun, but are often tragic,) and the opposite sex ... (how far can I go? Do they want it or are they just teasing and trying to get attention?)

    Furthermore, during the eighties things were wild. The people in his crowd were not doing coke. Thats amazing. Or were they?
    But, I digress.

    My point for this thread is this: Why not bring his wife and daughter to the stand and get some details from them.

    Like "Does your Dad stay away for days or weeks at a time?
    Are there phones calls that he hides in closets to take?
    Have you ever seen another woman's name, other than your mother's or known family friends on his phone?
    Does Mr. Kavanaugh ever drink to excess, stagger around swearing, cussing and throwing things?
    Does he call either of you names or treat you inappropriately?"
    ETC.

    If the answer to the question, "Doesn't Good Behavior Count for Anything?" is, "No,"

    well ... good to know.

    Especially for under-aged and just over under-aged youth.

      FYI, KLH! My computer's definition for "adolescence" --
      "the period following the onset of puberty during which a young person develops from a child into an adult."--
      is an error. Like all mammals, pre-civilized human nurse their babies and children until adolescence ("less than adult" by definition) which is the time children stop nursing and live on their own for developing their own independence before mating. In those days human were individual nomads which the "garden in Eden" is a metaphor of how man's name became human, or woman as it is written.

      Being a fact that Kavanaugh was already a boy -- sperm producing age man -- he should have known better, however, with that type behavior being openly spoken of around adults at that age and the fact alcohol often bring out those kinds of behaviors in both human genders, It has to be blamed on how he was brought up. In many gender segregated schools such behaviors openly talked about and even encouraged among both genders or parties composed of both genders should not be permitted by both genders of segregated schools.

      In integrated schools, during my 50s and 60s school days, in physical education classes children were discouraged from attending parties without parent supervision and alcohol was prohibited -- although sometimes we sneaked and did it.

      In that light, it's to be blamed the children's bringing without home and school social behavior instructions, if he had it then YES, "Good Behavior does Count for" Something, because he would have known better.

      Something to note along this line of thinking is that our liberal criminal justice system regularly releases criminals who've committed far more serious crimes as adults back into society for good behavior. These people often continue their criminal activity after being released. If good behavior counts for these people, why not for this person, especially when there is no proof of the accusations, and actually, much proof that he is not that kind of person.

      Your logic and rationalizations amaze me.

      You've said you think Ford is lying. Why do you think that?

      And Kavanaugh has been a choir boy? Where do you get that? How do you know that? What proof of that is there? There's pretty good evidence he's a heavy drinker.

      Furthermore, we know he lied in front of the Senate. He was asked about a "Devil's Triangle". He said, under oath, that it was a drinking game "like quarters". That was a bald-faced lie. Go look it up. He knew exactly what it was and he knew if he answered the question truthfully, he was done.

        I would agree - I can't imagine any good Feinstein could do that would "make up" for her poor and uncaring behavior in this case.

        But that's not always the case - how many mothers have been urinated on by their own children?  Vomited on?  Embarrassed by?  Yet those same kids are much loved and turn out to be great adults (sometimes).

                    Right.  Then you DO refer to Kavanagh and the alleged attack when you say "sexually attacking someone".  You know, from your crystal ball because there is surely no other evidence, that Kavanaugh sexually attacked Ford.

                    Which was the whole point; you know nothing of the kind.  You can pretend you know, but both you and I know you don't.

                    But if you truly wish to discuss changing people with bad behavior - MLK was jailed.  Nelson Mandella spend years and years in jail.  Ghandi was jailed many times. 

                    All people we look up to, people we admire. 

                    Others have been released from prison to reform their life, becoming model citizens.  Some were falsely accused, some were not, but they lived a good life after release either way. 

                    Your insinuation that no one can ever change; that a single episode of bad behavior forever defines what kind of person they will forever be, is ridiculous on the face of it.

                    Just thinking out loud here, if you can refrain from insults and silly comments, but how many of our judges have committed felonies?  Would we be better off with people on the bench that have been there, that understand what drives people to criminal activity?  Our system is broken - is it because we're taking the wrong tack all the way along the road to justice?  Should we welcome a man that was once a rapist (assuming we knew that, not just pretended it was so) and has lived decades of exemplary life since then?

                    I don't know, but I do think it is an interesting concept.

    Assuming she is telling the truth, is what he did really "sexual assault" or just a lack of self-control due to the effects of alcohol, (as in way too much beer)?

    She said he threw her on the bed and got on top of her while his friend laughed. She said he "grinded" on her, and she screamed under his weight and tyranny. He held his hand over her mouth to quiet her, afraid of being discovered. She felt she was going suffocate and was afraid he would accidentally kill her.

    If she is lying, I will be ... floored. I don't know a better word.

    As a seventeen year old I did things one a day at a park after consuming wine which was being freely dispensed. I did not remember the things I did at all! I was told by my friends.

      Surely you're joking. Do you think even if he beats his wife that she's going to testify that he beats her? If he drinks heavily, do you think his wife is going to testify to that?

      And really, you want his children to testify?

      Is that your standard for Supreme Court justices - the testimony of their family. If that were the standard, we'd never have to worry about a nominee ever being voted down ever again.

        Is it your standard to search out only negative testimony and discard any positive that is found?  Or do you balance the two, recognizing that everyone - everyone - makes enemies and that there WILL be some people reporting negatively?

        (How many of the hundred plus positive comments from past and current coworkers, friends, students, etc. that were submitted to the Judicial committee have you read and how do the reports and numbers stack up against the negative reports you've read?)

    "Kavanaugh was a principal author of the Starr Report to Congress, released in September 1998, on the Monica Lewinsky–Bill Clinton sex scandal; the report argued on broad grounds for Clinton's impeachment.

    Kavanaugh had urged Starr to ask Clinton sexually graphic questions, and described Clinton as being involved in 'a conspiracy to obstruct justice', having 'disgraced his office' and 'lied to the American people'. The report provided extensive and explicit descriptions of each of the President's sexual encounters with Monica Lewinsky, a level of detail which the authors described as 'essential' to the case against Clinton.'

      Kathryn, I am replying to both your comments concerning Kavanaugh's standing for the Constitution. I do not want to see him confirmed, and the Ford accusation has nothing to do with it.

      In his own writings he stated that  (1) The president should be able to ignore a law that the White House deems unconstitutional. (A law passed by our duly elected officials with which the chief executive disagrees because it was signed by a predecessor.)

      https://edition.cnn.com/2018/08/06/poli … index.html

      To do so should be in violation of the Constitution because it would be contrary with the checks and balances among the executive, legislative, and judicial  department. It would give the executive branch the authority to retroactively override the legislative branch, especially that of a previous president, without congressional approval.  As is, the president has veto power, which can be overridden by a 2/3 majority vote of both the House and Senate. The executive order should be reserved for emergencies only, not to give the president dictatorial powers.
      Now if Kavanaugh was referring to executive orders, the president has the power to issue those, but he needs to make sure that the situation warrants it. The Congress also has the power to override an executive order, but they don't always, such as when President Lincoln suspended the writ of habeas corpus:

      "Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney, in his role as a federal circuit judge, ruled that Lincoln’s executive order was unconstitutional in a decision called Ex Parte Merryman. Lincoln and the Union army ignored Taney, and Congress didn’t contest Lincoln’s habeas corpus decisions."

      (2) a sitting president should not be subject to investigation.  Really, why not?
      https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics … 403204aff1

      Kavanaugh says if the president misuses the office, he can be impeached. Doesn't there have to be an investigation of accusations before the president can be impeached? While I agree that all the threats of civil lawsuits from previous misbehaviors can be a distraction, Kavanaugh has not made himself clear on this.

      I do like his stand on some other issues, such as the Second Amendment, and if he is sincere, to leave Roe v. Wade alone. But until he clarifies what he means about presidential powers and sovereignty, I can't support him.

                  So many humans make that conscious decision to ignore the Golden Rule. The Rule remains hard and fast.  My view, or course, is that man is incapable of following the Ten Commandments anyway - they exist primarily to point to the futility of trying to do it with the sin nature. Even so, the Rule is there, and for those unwilling to give their lives to God, it remains as a standard to aim for.

                    I've always found it strange that the one moral we can point to as being nearly universal through time and space is not a part of the Christian god's imperatives to His worshippers. 

                    Why is that, do you think?  It comes through in the New Testament, but the people of the Old Testament never formulated it at all as far as we know.  Why not?

        Liberals have fine regard for the constitution, but the LEFT does not. Again, the Left's agenda and the and Liberal agenda are separate. They need to remain separate.

        But, they are merging, which is dangerous.

        The LEFT is the enemy to both liberals and Conservatives.
        I hope people are starting to understand this perspective.
        We have a common enemy: THE LEFT

          I agree with Wilderness, neither party, which according to "to form a more prefect union," is unconstitutional in the first place.

          Kathryn, I'm kind of surprised (and glad) to see you making a distinction between LEFT and LIBERAL. Some liberals are so far left they are what we called "reds" back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. I was surprised to see Democrats dubbed "Blue" and Republicans called "Red" because "red" was associated with "commie".

    I was a drunk teenager in the 80s but somehow managed to never grind my groin on anyone unwilling.

      How do you know?  Are you claiming you never passed out and never got so drunk you couldn't remember?  Like others have claimed...

    Excuse me......even though Kavanaugh was a teenager, he knew right from wrong.  Drinking was a lame, if any, excuse for acting inappropriately.   Have you heard of SELF-CONTROL?!  Immature actions are INEXCUSABLE.  I was a very responsible teenager.  I used self-control.  Being a teenager is no excuse for acting irresponsibly nor inappropriately!!

      It would be a great thing if this whole charade WERE about morals but lets face it GM , this is about the dirty tricks and winning  the mid- terms .    Prof. Ford   believes her own obviously extremely sketchy memory with not even her friends witness to back it up , How is the world to believe  essentially a clueless memory against a proven history of Kavanaugh's legal  expertise ? 

      Answer , we can't now and never will have an answer to this alleged occurrence , for all we know perhaps even a jilted young love affair  and  that is what the FBI "investigation " will also find .    No evidence , 

      Why ?
      Because once upon a time in America , evidence mattered in a trial  even a trial by media in a public forum . Not once has one shred of evidence been introduced in this entire fiasco .

        "Not once has one shred of evidence been introduced in this entire fiasco ."

        You are mistaken.  A very detailed "diary" was introduced.  Testimony from 3 witnesses was introduced.  Something like 100 character recommendations were introduced.

        There has been a good deal of evidence introduced.

        Except in few "white on white" sexual crimes. Even in my childhood, 1945-50s, if a black even whistled or looked hard at a white they were guilty of a crime. The system doesn't allow that anymore but ....

      Alcohol generally bring out the true desires of drinkers and that is why they often drink.

      When I drank a little heavy it always made me more observant of things around me except the 2 times I passed completely out but I can still remember intervals of observing during my first passing out in Danang Vietnam, 1969.

      No, teenage-hood is a time of experimentation and bravado, especially boys. As far as I have observed, the more daring ones became the stronger ones who went on to be successful as adults. Most teens go through this stage. I knew many who did not survive that period, (because they were way too adventurous,) and those who did survive, became wise and knowlegable, learning how to guide their wills toward safety, accomplishment and a good life.

      Also, I did many crazy things that I would brag about in my journal. I learned so many lessons. (One was not to leave my journal anywhere where my mother could find it.) I absolutely stopped my craziness, especially after I realized that I was just doing most of it for peer acceptance. I found out it wast't worth it at all. So, I heartily disagree with you, gmwilliams.

          "The daredevil brain, it goes into even hyper-mode when adolescents are in groups, and in general because testosterone causes more aggression," explained Levine. "Adolescents are very much conditioned to peer pressure. And we see again across species, even adolescent mice will drink a lot more alcohol when they're in a group of adolescent mice than adult mice when you give them the opportunity to drink alcohol."

          from the above Link.

    The president does and should hold special privilege above the petty use of ANY laws against him , that is what his and Kavanaugh's points are I believe . Otherwise the normal opposition could use laws to obstruct , resist or ideologically criminalize him or her .

    Condemn Kavanaugh for perceived "anger" ?   Go to a Bernie Sanders meet and greet for a half hour ,  watch Kamala Harris ,  Maxine waters , Farrakhan , ? .........Media ?  Rachel Maddow ,  watch "The View " or any Msnbc morning" coffee mug " show.

    Liberals mistake passion for anger , too many group trophy's perhaps ,  you've all forgotten what passion is .
