      I hesitate to predict too narrowly, but you are onto something.

      If we look back, each time one or the other party does something that previously was considered to be unprecedented, the other party then returns the favor by making that new status quo work for them in some way. Unfortunately, there is little to restrain the Left since it looks favorably on the idea of uprooting American system of government.

      I thank God for Brett Kavanough's Senate Confirmation...

      And thereby for its repudiation of the leftist politics of hate and character assasination...

      Sadly I don't think it will do anything of the sort. If the hard left are serious in their claims, the next time they take control of enough of the government they'll be on a mission to impeach everybody they can. And if that happens it's hard to see the country turning into much more than a tinpot banana republic where every new leader immediately removes everybody from any position of power and surrounds themselves with a group of their own yes-men.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Exactly
      The left are now known dirty fighters, if they get in power America will be under a democracy and there is no chance for a reversal, the way they play we might as well pack up our bags like 'lot' and let them be destroyed albeit by themselves... im sorry but according to the OT especially we are forewarned and given plenty of examples of degeneration -which I am afraid is happening in America quite swiftly at this very moment.
      Anyone catch the senate vote stream? They were clawing the doors on the outside and their screams sounded like demons being tormented in hell, you could hear it in the room! Very scary to know that this is how close they are to power, literally clawing and banging on the doors from the outside and screaming to get it.

      Most USA states do not have the climate to grow bananas.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      It just. Doesn't. Stop.

      Roberts Refers Judicial Misconduct Complaints Against Kavanaugh to Federal Appeals Court in Colorado

      These "complaints" have nothing to do with Kavanaugh's time as a Federal judge or otherwise, but with "dishonesty" and "lack of Judicial temperament" during his confirmation hearing. As the article says, the point is moot. He's been sworn in.

      Moot it is but not irrelevant. Events ran ahead and he is confirmed. That is a done deed which evidently cannot be undone. Yet his temperament and his honesty are relevant. They will rise up again and again as long as he sits as a justice of the SCOTUS.

      What temperament?
