    I wouldn't say "nobody" simply because you might not be intelligent enough to. Only fools ignore good advice.

    The Ad Hominem Irony meter just exploded.

    If you think so then you don't understand what an ad hominem truly is. When one says "ad hominem" the are referring to an ad hominem logical fallacy...a perfect example of this was provided by you earlier when you were given an argument and instead of responding to the argument you attacked the person who gave the argument without any attempt to address the argument. Me pointing out that only fools would ignore good advice isn't an example of an ad hominem logical fallacy.

    Hopefully you've learned something today, you're welcome.

    The joke is that TJ's posts are simple games by him. So there is nothing there to address.

    I'm not going to keep boring people with this attempt to drag everything down to an insult war. So long.

    So then you'll accept my advice and not sling around insults and actually address what has been said? That's all anyone can ask.

    When it comes to posts by anyone, you shouldn't judge them based upon who said it, you should judge them based on their individual merit. No matter what you think about TJ, the post in question was overall pretty solid, if you disagree with any part of it, then say so but when you just attack who said it you are the one that looks like the simpleton.

    IMO the only questionable part about what he said was when he was talking about Dr. Ford's voice. There's no evidence to suggest that she talks differently in other scenarios. The points about where she perjured herself when it comes to why she was in therapy and how she attempted to manipulate the process by lying about not being able to fly were perfectly valid though.

    That said, I could see why you'd want to dodge those valid points because they are damaging to how you choose to look at things and you have no valid argument against them.....you just aren't going to get away with it.

    What the Senate asked for was a supplemental background check that was limited in scope to just dealing with the 2 main accusations and limited in time to one week.....there were no limitations placed on the FBI when it comes to investigating within that scope and that time frame. Hell they were even done early because they were dealing with accusations that were found to be completely baseless.

    So.... is Ford not pursuing this anymore? It’s been silent on her end ever since Justice Kavanaugh got sworn in.

    Would hate to see this turn out to be another nothingburger

    There's nothing for her to pursue, Kavanaugh didn't actually assault her, the goal was just to prevent him from getting a SCOTUS seat. He's on the bench now, so she's going to just collect the money she was paid for her performance and hope she doesn't get charged with perjury while attempting to return to her normal life.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the don't use her as a campaign tool in 2020.

    I think she only spoke out because she thought people who were trying to decide if Kavanaugh was worthy of the Supreme Court should know what kind of a person he was. After they didn't care about that, there was nothing left for her to pursue. All she can do now is hope the money that individuals donated to the fundraiser will be enough to cover her continued security costs after the death threats and being mocked and harassed by so many people.

    I find it funny. Better be careful he might block you too. You see once you call him out on his bullshit with facts and outclass him with intelligence he sorely lacks he will block you lol.

    Uhhhh, WUT? What are you expecting her to do? She risked a lot for herself and her family and the Senate doesn't care about her story. Game over.

    She never wanted him in jail. From her perspective, she probably wanted him to be more honest with America and she probably wanted the Senate to decide there were less morally-flawed individuals for the high court. But that's that. Over. Now she's just a target for winger-flakes everywhere, or people who will, for example, claim "nothing burger" because she's "been silent... ever since." Good lord. Just leave her alone and do your bro victory dance.

    She told her story. She had nothing credible to back the story up. There's nothing for anyone to do unless she gets proof. If she can prove that story of hers and get him convicted in criminal court then he gets impeached from his position. She's not going to do that because the guy didn't do anything to her.

    If he sexually assaulted her, she should want him to go to jail. That way he can't do it again to anyone else. Cock blocking (pardon the pun) his confirmation with unproven allegations isn't justified.

    Good lord, dance with the truth.

    Well that plan of hers went to **** when not only did her star witness not know what kind of a person he was, she didn't KNOW him at all.
