On the Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearing Testimony (Updated)

The Christine Blasey Ford saga doesn’t seem to be ending soon. While we await further word from the FBI, here follow some thoughts on her testimony, her various statements, and questions raised during the Senate hearing:

Ford testified that she didn’t know that the Judiciary Committee had offered to send investigators to take her statement, in private, anywhere that she wished. Either she’s not telling the truth or her own lawyers deliberately kept these facts from her, even though Ford’s avowed preference was to not testify in public. Ford has not fired the lawyers, which must mean that she’s okay with their deception, if it was deception. If it was not deception, then she misled the committee, at best. Which is it? It would seem to be malpractice for lawyers to work against the best interest of their client in order to further the interests of their political party. Will there be repercussions for these lawyers?

If we’ve learned anything from the civil unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, it’s this: When you need them, the police may not stand up to protect you or your property. If you own a home, you probably pay your property taxes. If you own a business, you probably pay your business taxes. If it’s required in your city, county, or state, you probably pay income taxes and other taxes as well. As a good citizen, you probably also pay your federal income taxes.

In return, the deal that you may believe exists between you and your various governments is that the taxes you pay will fund anything necessary to ensure a civil society, including the various police forces, which exist to ensure tranquility (to keep the peace), to enforce the law, and to protect life and property. In other words, to protect and serve. To ensure Law and Order.

Or, at least that’s what we all used to believe.
