Gitmo and Hope

I didn't support the nomination of Judge Janice Rogers Brown to the federal court. It seemed to me she was too ideological to care about the truth, only about the outcome. I pretty much agreed with the People For the American Way and on Judge Brown. Judge Brown's record seem to show she only cared to protect corporations and government infringement on fundamental rights. And the fact that her nomination had come from this current administration only made her seem worse. So, no, I wasn't a big fan and this recent dissent isn't going to turn me into one. It does, however, give me hope. I mean, in what world is a group of persons not "persons"?

In other news important to me, Bob Herbert's assessment of New Hampshire primary results seem to be the most reasonable.

This isn't too complicated. If you disagree with me, I'm more than happy to have an honest discussion. I'm quite open to learning new facts and ideas. I'm dying for a conservative to explain their ideas in a sensible way.

But, I do have rules, and they also apply to those who agree with me. They just get the benefit of my already knowing the fact they'll be referring to.

So, here're the comment thread rules:

1 - Use facts.
2 - Refer to policy.
3 - Don't rely on theories and conjectures. Show me how, for example, a public health insurance option will lead to "rationing" of health care.
4 - No unfounded attacks on any entity.

If you break those rules, I will edit your comment to my own whimsical satisfaction.

Lastly, perhaps most importantly, I'm not going to entertain too much pro-white/racism-denying discussion. I want this to be a space to discuss strategies to fight racism, not space where I have to fight racism. I want anti-racists to be able to come here for a mental respite. If what you're interested in doing is attempting to demonstrate the fallacy of anti-racism by repeating the same ole comments and questions and accusations we hear all the time, please do that somewhere else.
