    Cf #112

    [​IMG]

    Thanks for this Cf #112.
    I agree with your inscription. It does look creepy to me. BUT !!

    It seems the women that Biden paws like that don't seem to mind. Reports indicate Biden reserves that kind of treatment for long-tenured friends, and while looking risqué to you and me, we are not the appropriate arbiters.
    It's the women themselves that are to judge.
    And unlike a Democrat governor here or there, Biden seems to be in the clear.

    This is not some complicated rule or arcane double-standard here Cf #112.

    This is a rule so simple and pure we teach it to children as young as nursery school.

    If anyone touches you inside your bathing suit areas, or if anyone touching you makes you feel uncomfortable, tell them to stop, to take their hands off you. If they don't, call for help.

    If you haven't given your children / grandchildren / great grandchildren that lecture, it's overdue.

    Until I have reason to do otherwise, I give creepy Joe a pass on this one.

    Me, you, and everyone else pay for the healthcare for those without insurance or the means to pay for their healthcare when they eventually end up in the emergency room or hospital.

    Why not find a solution to where the people are as healthy as they can be so they can work and be fruitful, not only for themselves but, for the companies they work for?

    It could be a win/win situation.

    Why does the greed of the right wing make it so hard for them to understand that simple view?

    And, most notable is, no woman has accused Biden of sexually abusing/harassing them.

    Those women are probably afraid to say anything. Once I was molested by a man with power and you'd better believe I kept quiet.

    Just one look at their faces in these pictures tells you just how totally uncomfortable they are.

    I do NOT give Joe Biden a pass. He is a creep.

    Good call on Uncle Joe. He's far from perfect but is a real guy. He's spent his life in public service and if you look at his net worth you'll see he obviously didn't take many payoffs. When he was in the Senate he used to ride the Metroliner every Friday night from Washington to Delawar and back down on Monday morning.

    Biden f*&ked up the Clarence Thomas hearings. He was afraid to go against an obvious sexual harasser because Thomas was black. A big mistake. He should have let the other women that Thomas abused testify. All in all he's made a few mistakes but in general is a good guy.

    Woman have a thing for Uncle Joe. Hey - it's hard to explain but trust me PNWest knows what it feels like to be adored by women of all ages.

    Biden is good people. I don't always agree with him but ask this neighbors in Delaware and the people he grew up with in Northern PA.

    Women like Christine Blasey Ford who lie are the ones who continue to make it impossible for those really molested to step forward. Women like Ford ............. cause the truly molested women to be blamed. She is despicable.

    I wholeheartedly agree. He's about as decent of what a politician, and man, can be. Look what he's been through with the death of his first wife and son.

    Kudos to the man of men!

    Your opinion of her means nothing. You bad mouth her because you wanted a right wing SCOTUS---nothing more, hypocrite.

    I bad mouth her because I read everything as the whole debacle was going on. My opinion means nothing..........but the opinion I hold was supported by the courts. So. [​IMG]

    By the way, though, why would my wanting a right wing SCOTUS, nothing more , be "hypocritical"? Do you know what hypocritical means?

    So did I. And there are thousands of rapists, and murderers that have gone unpunished. Kavanaugh was just one of the many.

    I know your game, Jen. If this was reversed and Obama's pick, Merrick Garland, had this accused of him, you'd have him tried and convicted before he went before the Senate for confirmation.

    Wait, he didn't even get the chance, 9 mos. before Obama left office, did he?

    Why was that, Jen?

    Why are you asking me?
    You already made up a conversation in your head of the things I "would" say. Just go for that. What I would really say doesn't make any difference to you.

    "Those women are probably afraid to say anything." J #124

    Thank you J #124.
    You make an important point here.

    We KNOW women have been scared into silence for decades. Bill Cosby among others have taught us that.

    BUT !!

    That's often because such sexual predators engineer their sexual assaults when the woman is alone, no witnesses.
    That way, it's a pure "he said / she said".

    Not so here:

    [​IMG]

    They're in a brightly lit room
    in the white house
    with witnesses
    on camera.

    I deeply appreciate your concern for the welfare of these females, women and girls.
    I'm not in any way discouraging your vigilance. I don't discourage it, I encourage it.
    But in Biden's case logic seems to indicate, it's misplaced.
    a) I do.
    b) My condolence.
    c) I too had a few experiences when young. While I've been able to shrug them off, I understand it's different for women.

    But let's not throw the mouth out with the mouthwarsh here.

    CERTAINLY sexual molestation is an issue.
    But is that a reason to subordinate our humanity to a society which avoids body contact to all but surgeons?
    The gal in the left pics doesn't look to flustered to me, even if I would have been, in her situation.
    They do.
    Before you impose YOUR values on them, you say you were molested. Would you want someone else's standards imposed on you about it?
    If you don't want theirs imposed on you,
    why would you impose yours on them?

    Think it through.
    That's why I called him "creepy Joe" in #121. I thank you for your concurrence.

    But it's unwise to overplay

    And what are all you people doing up at this hour? Don't you know it's tomorrow already?!

    I speak truth to power. You can't answer my question of why Garland didn't even get a confirmation hearing because you know that if you were truthful, you'd be agreeing with me.

    Thanks for your agreement by omission.

    McConnell (R-KY) out-maneuvered Obama on Garland.
    The Republicans will pay a price, for establishing that precedent. They usually do.
    Republicans term-limited the presidency because the only U.S. president to exceed 2 terms was FDR (D).
    So they wrote presidential term limits (22nd Amendment) into our Constitution, and thereby surrendered a Reagan 3rd term.

    McConnell will end up biting the GOP on the @$$ for Garland.

    Watching what he does in public, one can just imagine what he does in private.
    Personal experience tells me that he is more than just a little creepy. He may be Bill Cosby creepy. If he respected women he wouldn't treat them that way in public where they are mortified but obviously just have to bear it.

    LOOK AT THEIR FACES. The one with the wretched smile is working to make sure his hands don't accidentally rise up. The little girl is scared witless. I've worn those faces. I know exactly what they mean.

    Why won't you answer the simple question?

    Why wasn't Merrick Garland given a confirmation hearing?
