The Pack: Entitled Predators

How Frats, Teams And Gangs Divide, Conquer And Now Judge America | HuffPost

"The Pack"
Entitled Predators

Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation sent a clear message to the World: the antisocial tribalism of violence prone male packs that is invading civilization hails from America, and finds its home and safe haven there.

Kavanaugh epitomizes the crudeness of the male-only pack. And, he glorifies it. Having had every advantage a privileged boy could hope for; the result was a vulgar, violent manipulator; a predatorial misfit, and an addict to power.

The attached article is a pleasure to read; especially since it has been so long coming. Kavanaugh is just another: "No one can tell me what to do" punk, at the end of the day. I guess that no one could tell his parents, or teachers, or coaches what to do either; they didn't see a problem with fifteen year old drunks having parties every weekend. I wonder what kind of man he might have been, had he not been, "raised, and raised up", in a pack, where rape was a rite of passage!

      What do Donald Trump and Pat Robertson have in common? Alas, no, that's not a setup for a bad joke; it is instead a setup for a sad commentary on just how far we (America) have fallen in our claims to moral leadership. Paul Krugman lays it out as only he can:

          This Week the Supreme Court Will Decide If 21 Teens Can Sue The Government Over Climate Change

          The Trump administration has called the suit “groundless and improper.”

          The plaintiffs in a landmark climate change lawsuit line up with their lawyers in July after a hearing in federal court in Oregon.Chris Pietsch/The Regis

          .

          This week, the Supreme Court of the United States will decide whether or not 21 teen-aged plaintiffs will be allowed to sue their government on the detrimental effects of climate change. The Supreme Court had said that their case could proceed three months ago, but due to the Trump Administration's request that it be delayed, and Chief Justice Roberts' order to stay the proceedings pending the plaintiffs’ response to the government’s demand that they narrow the case, the Court has a tight window to decide whether to let the trial begin, as previously scheduled, on October 29th.

          The teens had first sued the Government under the Obama Administration asserting their rights to “a climate system capable of sustaining human life, ” and now they are arguing that the US government has known for decades that carbon dioxide endangers the world, yet their government continues to allow the production of fossil fuels anyway, which they say violates their constitutional right to life, liberty, and property, as well as their public trust rights.

          The Trump/GOP Government has requested that the Supreme Court block the case, insisting that it is a “groundless and improper” request to have the Executive Branch devise a “national remedial plan” to phase out carbon dioxide emissions. In their response today, the teens said that an intervention by the Court at this stage would “undermine the confidence of the American people in our Nation’s justice system."

          My vote is for the case to be heard as scheduled on Monday the 29th of October. My guess is that it will probably be delayed. Human life on this planet is not as important to the government or the Courts as I would like it to be.

                  Almost every black person in America has experienced the sting of disrespect on the basis of being black. A large but undetermined number of black people feel acutely disrespected in their everyday lives, discrimination they see as both subtle and explicit. Black folk know everyday racism – that becomes powerfully underscored by highly publicized racial incidents like the incident at Starbucks, the recent spate of police killings of black men, or the calling of police on a black female student while napping in a common area of a Yale dormitory.

                  “In the face of these realities, black people everywhere take note and manage themselves in a largely white-dominated society, learning and sharing the peculiar rules of a white-dominated society in which expressions of white racism are becoming increasingly explicit.

                  “While American society purports to be open and egalitarian, or “equal opportunity”, such everyday outcomes leave black people deeply doubtful. Moreover, black people are generally convinced that they must work twice as hard to get half as far in life.”

                  AMINO

                  It’s four AM in Los Angeles and I can’t sleep. So this insane president is going to send American troops dedicated to protecting this country from a foreign enemy, to the Mexican border and by force of arms I presume, prevent two or three thousand poor, hungry and frightened Hondurans, mostly woman and children from entering America for no other purpose but claiming asylum. If the military allows itself to be used in this way, I am AMINO, an American in Name only. I give up on this country. We let in the Cambodians and Vietnamese because we destroyed their country over a myth, allowed Haitians in after a disaster and remember, we allowed Cubans to sail in dangerous boats to our shores so they could touch the sands of Florida and declare themselves free and safe. We’ve lost our presidency and our protection under the law. Our legislative branch to this monster and our Judiciary to right wing ideologues and now the military. What’s left her for the descent in America? We have one change to stop this next month and that’s it. One chance!

                  How Voter Supression Is Destroying Our Democracy

                  In Georgia, the Democratic candidate for governor, Stacey Abrams, is calling on her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, to step down as secretary of state for placing 53,000 voter applications on hold. Seventy percent of the applicants are African-American.

                  Abrams has accused Kemp of using the state’s “exact match” system to disenfranchise voters. With exact match, even a minor discrepancy in a voter’s registration and their official ID could bar them from casting a ballot.

                  We speak with Carol Anderson, chair of the Department of African American Studies at Emory University in Atlanta. She is author of the new book “One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression Is Destroying Our Democracy.”
