      Women have learned sooo perfectly to shut down and say nothing about every subtle and terrible kind of abuse. So imo when a woman decides after decades of putupandshutup speaks up for the good of the country and puts on the boxing gloves, we know she’s not playing that game any more. my love and thanks to you Christine.

      PBO always said to keep our heads down and work, to ignore polls. We have seen that many of them have been wrong. The sole purpose is to suppress the vote, to bring about a feeling of helplessness and to convince us of the inevitability of the opponent winning. I live in a part of Fla. where Gillium was barely mentioned and he won the whole damn thing.

      I think if she does not testify which I think she should NOT, it’s a total setup.

      Maybe that was last week or Monday but today the GOP are going ahead with this loser Kavanhaugh. The DEMS need to make noise that they will have the MD AG to look into whether this sexual assault was a crime. Investigate everyone. If he is found to have committed a crime, he should step down as SCOTUS. This will be a black eye for the GOP and SCOTUS for a generation.

    Dr. Ford needs to do an exclusive one-on-one interview on live TV tomorrow night. The first thing that she should say is that she accepts the Senate invitation, and she will be bringing witnesses with her to testify. Then she should tell her story, in uninterrupted vivid detail. The interviewer needs to be friendly but with journalistic weight. Maybe Rachel? Or someone more mainstream?

      “If Kavanaugh is innocent and he’s such a fine nominee for the Supreme Court, then why did the GOP refuse to release all the records and why are they in such a damn hurry to rush the result?”

      Steven Beschloss’s profound question is begging for an answer from Senate Republicans. The so called “mainstream media” should be relentlessly asking this question to all the GOP Senators, but especially to the Chairman of the Senate Judicially Committee, Charles Grassley. and the other ten Republicans on the Committee.

    The only compromised Supreme Court nomination I personally observed via CSPAN was Thomas. There were no TV ads w/ random women extolling his “virtues”. Now in my ad market am being inundated w/ Kavanaugh ads. When did a Supreme Court nomination become a political ad, and who’s footing that bill? And who thinks this is necessary? I honestly don’t think I saw any for Sotomayor or Kagan or Gorsuch. Which brings me to my QED (conclusion): GOP absolutely knows Kavanaugh is seriously compromised & flawed. And have known this from get-go.

    So I need some advice. My 26yr old D, lost her job July 23. She got a new job Aug 29th, sent her acceptance, Aug 30 and was to start Sept 12th. She received an email on the 11th saying that her background checks hadn’t come back, so she couldn’t start. As of today, Sept 19th, it still has not come back. My question is: is this normal? She got a dui (as a minor-6yrs ago) and was charged with a misdemeanor and has fulfilled all the requirements from that over the past 5 years in AZ and apparently the delay is from there. She’s had 3-4 background checks already and they’ve all come back clear, so what should she do? We are supporting her financially, but can’t do so indefinitely and so do you all think she should look elsewhere? The company is Integro (out of Boston), and her position will be Executive Assistant. They use “CareerBuilder” to run their background checks. I would love your thoughts on this. My hubby and I are going a little crazy… She has no healthcare 😦

      Hope you don’t mind that I asked my husband… I’ve worked at the same place for 18 years and am kinda rusty with the hiring business:) He said he would call the background check place and ask… he also said that he thought she should keep looking for another job… just in case. She should also get a copy of her background check to make sure that it is correct…. which totally burns me in light of the morons in THIS administration…. some of whom are felons….Good luck!!

        -so sorry Betsy it is such a headache and heartache for all of you. Looks like mistreatment but nobody in Personnel is answerable?

      Hi Betsy, so sorry that your daughter did not research how long a dui stays on your record in AZ. According to my google search it only stays on your record for 5yrs. I don’t know if it will show up in a background check or not. Boston also has laws that ban asking about criminal background in the initial hiring process. Since she was offered the position and given a start date they did a background check. Was employment contingent on passing the background check? If it was she should have kept looking or accepted a different position. She should talk to the company’s HR department and explain her situation. State and Federal jobs do background checks but you start and if anything comes back wrong you can be let go for cause. Also she has a right to now what is holding up her background check and if that is the only thing then that’s nuts they won’t let her start. Unfortunately jobs are at-will and the employer is not held to the offer or start date. Maybe she can get a Starbucks job at least she will have medical and maybe they will keep her on part time. This really sucks, I am so sorry.

      Arizona has some of the strictest DUI penalties on record books. A first-time offender can face up to ten days in jail with a year driver’s license suspension, among hundreds of dollars in fines and the mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device. A DUI charge will also remain on your record for five years. Feb 12, 2017

      California’s is 10yrs and some other states is up to 12yrs.

        September 20, 2018 at 1:52 pm


        After a DUI expungement in Arizona, the DUI should not appear on criminal background checks because it is a dismissed case. Most background check companies that are used by employers do not report cases that are dismissed because of state and federal regulations. Law such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) apply to background check companies that provide information for purposes of employment or tenant screening. The FCRA makes it illegal to discriminate on the basis of a dismissed case.

        September 20, 2018 at 6:21 pm

        The dui in AZ was considered a misdemeanor and she did spend 1 day in jail; she has met all the other conditions for her dui, the last one being this past summer (having a breathalyzer thingy on her steering wheel for 6 months, which she completed). She just was able to get her car registered as that was being held up by AZ, now it’s cleared. She’s already disclosed the dui to her new boss, he said it wasn’t a problem as long as it wasn’t a felony, which it wasn’t b/c of her underage. They classified it as a misdemeanor since it was .07, below the legal limit for someone 21 and over. Sigh. I’ll pass on your thoughts to her. Thanks.

      I’ve been doing Resistbot messages, sometimes 2 or 3 a day, always one. Few minutes ago, I called Corker’s office. Tried DC first and it was busy. So called local office here in Knoxville. Knew a female would answer. She sounded young. I started off calm, telling her that usually I had my thoughts together before I called, sometimes even written notes. This time, no. The longer I talked, the more enraged I became. I ended by saying to her that if she has an ounce of respect for herself and fellow women, she better wake up and vote straight blue this fall!
