A Definition for the Word “Woman”?

`

“On February 25, 2022, President Joe Biden announced that he would nominate Ketanji Brown Jackson to the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States to fill the upcoming vacancy by Stephen Breyer, who announced his retirement on January 27, 2022 at the age of 83.”

During last week’s U.S. Senate confirmation hearings, numerous Republican thespians, cast… correction… miscast in the role of legitimate legislators* posed questions to Ketanji Brown Jackson, which had little to no relevance to either verifying her stellar qualifications or evaluating her, essentially, flawless character. These bad actors’ actual intent was to raise the curtain on their political theatre, and in the process…

a. repurpose KBJ as their prop / property
b, vent deplorable male white supremacy
c. both bore / browbeat a person of color
d. all of the above

(btw, If you chose “d” go to the head of the class.)

* btw, I’ve granted them anonymity because they’ve already embarrassed themselves enough already. Beyond that, by and large, they’re all cookie cutter interchangeable; i.e., to know one grotesque Trumper Republican is to know ‘em all.

Of course, seeing how, at the very least, you do need one specific sample re their repulsive rhetoric, check out the following actual “Q” and “A”…

Senator (who identifies as a woman): “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?”
Ketanji Brown Jackson: “I’m not a biologist.”

While her “A” proved to be professionalism at its very finest, were anyone to ever pose such a “Q” to this layperson, check out my “A”…

CommonSenseTom: “Why not directly ask each human who identifies as such a being?”

My point being that each individual, who identifies as being a woman, likely harbors a uniquely personal definition; thereby making it absolutely none of my business (especially since I’m a man). I’d never have the audacity to assign, to anyone, the far too limiting / restrictive parameters; e.g., those typically presented within male sexist authored, plumbing only textbooks.

And, for that matter, seeing how ONLY one’s own primary care physician and other medical specialists should be allowed that privilege, that means that all laypersons, especially politicians and media political pundits, must BUTT OUT and STAY OUT, STAT!

Beyond that, with America now being a scant four years away from its 250th birthday, there’s no time like the present for We the New Millennium’s People to revise the following passage FROM THIS:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Founding Fathers / authors of America’s Declaration of Independence

TO THIS:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all people are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness; regardless of the contents of their private ‘drawers.”

18th Century Founding Fathers + 21st Century CommonSenseTom (Paine)

Granted, there’s probably a far more delicate, decorous way to express an underwear reference, but, hey, it’s the heartfelt, heady spirit of inclusiveness that really matters, right?

6 of 9 Ain’t Divine

PREFACE: Donald J. Trump contends that his opponent, if elected, intends to “stack” the Supreme Court bench with liberals (via an expansion of the current nine judge “limit”). As for Joe Biden’s actual intent, he has yet to respond with a thumbs up or thumbs down. Of course, thumbing his nose at Donny would be far more apropos, considering the fake prez’s shameless hypocrisy in this very matter. All gestures aside, Joe could easily build a formidable case in defense of “stacking”, thusly…

The evidence is irrefutable. Trump, himself, has been stacking the Supreme Court bench with hardcore conservatives; namely, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and the soon to be installed Amy Coney Barrett.

Once this rookie trio colludes with the inveterate veterans (rightwingers John Roberts, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas), Donny will own and operate 6 out of 9 SCOTUS judges (67%).

One has to seriously call into question the flagrant unfairness of 67% of SCOTUS judges kowtowing to the interests of the 35% of Americans who identify as conservatives; while simultaneously screwing over 65% of Americans who identify as liberals / moderates.

The math, alone, calls for a 67% liberal / moderate Supreme Court bench. Of course, to achieve such a feat would require EITHER firing Trump’s three appointees and replacing them with lefties / centrists OR hiring additional judges who think along these lines. Let’s explore these options further.

Seeing how the Founding Fathers had stipulated that SCOTUS judges are supposed to serve until they either retire or die, that firing action would be actionable. However, since they had never stipulated any specific, set number of judges, that hiring action could easily pass any constitutional scholar’s sniff test.

So, let’s take a whiff of what Donald J. Trump’s Supreme Court stacking has established; how it utterly fails to represent the vast majority of Americans. In essence, he’s forcing liberals and moderates to suffer; i.e., due to his sadistic judges’ saturated with ignorance and discrimination decisions.

More specifically, John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and the up and coming Amy Coney Barrett will soon be striking down Obamacare, Medicare, Social Security and Labor Unions; gutting the Bill of Rights, Civil Rights, the Rights of Women, Minorities, the LGBTQIA Community, the Aged and Infirm.

This sextet fully intends to muck up fair, free elections, arm homicidal gun nuts, embolden Nazis, Klansmen and other domestic terrorists; prop up corporate personhood and unleash irreversible, catastrophic environmental ruin.

And lest we forget, in unison they’ll also shout out to Dictator Donny, “MORE POWER TO YOU!” and then stand, patiently in line, to each plant a big wet, lingering smooch on his Fascist fanny.

So, here’s were we now stand… correction… where America is about to fall. 6 out of 9 Supreme Court Trump suck-ups and their horrific rulings will continue screwing over 2 out of 3 Americans for up to 3 to 4 more decades.

And to keep it all real, in the long run, they’ll actually be mucking up the lives of 3 out of 3 Americans; eventually negatively impacting all 7.8 Billion souls, worldwide.

And so, I now ask:

WTF would be the harm of the (hopefully) victorious Joe Biden “stacking” the U.S. Supreme Court with lefties and centrists? If that’s what it’ll take to save humanity, would that not be well worth it?

What rational person would ever find fault with that?

Of course, the key word, in play, here, is RATIONAL!
