    Agree on Cruz. Think he'd have been a MUCH better choice than what we got.

    Given the fact that everyone has already made up their minds, there's no real reason to hold the hearings aside from political theater. It's laughable that the democrats (who've all already decided how they will vote) are complaining that the process is 'rushed'. If you've already decided, why do you need a hearing or any discussion? Just vote and be done with it.
    Exactly.

    My father has a Jewish friend who enlightened us. He explained that there are ethnic Jews and religious Jews. Most people assume that ethnic Jews are religious Jews, but most are not. This is why a majority of Jews take political positions that are at odds with Israel and the Torah. RBG was accepted by the left because of her political views and her willingness to use her seat on the supreme court to advance them in spite of the Constitution. However, a practicing religious Jew would be attacked at every opportunity.

    I'd say that's accurate based on the Jewish folks I know.

    Interestingly, under federal law 'jewish' is not an ethnicity at all--only a religion. Under federal law jews (and Mongolians, and Persians, and Syrians) are all grouped as 'Caucasians'.

    The categorization game will always be played to the advantage of those in power.

    Odd. So is "Israeli" an ethnicity?
