Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Then take her out and have her shot. And let trump, pence and the like finish their agenda. Oh, for fuck sake. We're whining about a single check box on some idiot college form while Mr Khashoggi was dismembered for being honest and trump is supporting it. There's got to be some sort of priority, r...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

One member here seemed to have trouble distinguishing Warren's statements with those of Kavanaugh as to truthfulness. You know what, RC - I've got no idea what I did to piss you off, but it's become very clear both here and in the Avenatti thread that I have. Whatever it was, I'm sorry. But I'm als...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

That assumes she checked it and not someone in the department filling a quota. She checked it. She said so.

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

I'm not fine with her saying she IS (fill in the blank) when it's based on nothing but family legend. And before anyone starts with the "she didn't say she was" thing again: She checked the box to designate herself as a minority faculty member. That's an explicit claim to be a member of a minority ...

Re: Senator Warren Has Some Serious Class

I really don't think I've been critical of Warren at all. I've been critical of some of her claims; but for me that's more of an academic argument than a specific criticism of Warren herself. I'm a Development geek. For Development geeks, things like community, identity, and indigenous rights are v...

Re: Senator Warren Has Some Serious Class

Something else to consider: The two people who have been the most critical of Senator Warren have (I think) been maydijio and me. Maydijio has been a bit more critical than I have, but go back and read our posts again - neither of us was very critical of Warren at all. People here are literally gett...

What "they" do is up to them. I refuse to shut up just because "they" might get some enjoyment out of me speaking out. I have the right to say that I'm uncomfortable with Senator Warren presenting herself in a certain way; and for so many people here to take me to task for it is to play right into ...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

I still got concerns over this whole thing. And they're not concerns about relatively minor shit that happened decades ago; they're concerns about what's happening now. Here's what I'm seeing: it's not just the Cherokee who are upset with the DNA thing. There seem to be quite a few native activists ...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Something that is kind of nagging at me about all this: Why did Warren choose to do this now ? Now as in the last couple of weeks before the critical midterms? Last couple of polls I've seen have her as the frontrunner for the 2020 nomination, and the campaign will kick off - at least as far as the...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Within this group, I don’t think it’s dismissal of the old as much as it’s a desire for leaders to start appearing from younger Democrats. The older set will start dying off and we really need some young leaders ready to step into their shoes. That's why I mentioned specifics like inability to adap...

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Age is not something that would keep me from voting for the Democratic nominee. And it's unlikely to be a decisive factor in who I want to win the nomination. But I would prefer a nominee who is still under the average life expectancy at the time he or she would be finishing a second term.

If she runs and wins, she'll be 71 and a half on inauguration day.
That bothers me slightly more than the Native American thing and slightly less than her skepticism toward trade deals such as TPP.

Re: President Trump

Right.

That stuff I said in the Daniels thread about the Trump team having very likely successfully mooted the NDA part of the case? That's probably still right. But only probably.

I'm flabbergasted by the use of the word "probably" here.
I used to be a scientist. Now I'm a lawyer. I have a really, really hard time not using wiggle-words - no matter how much the situation might suggest they be avoided.

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

I still think Warren's consent of being listed in a directory might have consisted to as little as someone poking their head in the office and asking if it was OK to list her that way since she may have shared her family history at some point. There were and are legal and public image grounds for a...

Don't know where that discussion is taking place, but I don't think it's here. But in any event, we're heading into what's likely to be the most wide-open Democratic primary since, what? 1992? There's going to be a lot of candidates, all better than than Trump, and quite a few of whom are likely to...

Not exactly. Was it appropriate? OK, arguendo , let's say it wasn't.

Re: Ms Warren Has Some Serious Class

Donald Trump is a bloviating asshole, and therefore there can be no discussion whatsoever of whether or not it was appropriate for Elizabeth Warren to list herself as a minority faculty member in the AALS directory. Yessir, yessir, three fucking bags full, sir.
