Back at it again, and the news still isn't good

Well, they say when you can't write, the best thing to do is just write anyway. Which sounds like gibberish, but it's worth a shot. I haven't touched this blog since December of last year, and was shocked to find that the website didn't even exist anymore. Long story short, my kid napped for two hours, so I had time to re-purchase the website and the reconfigure whatever settings needed to be changed to make this whole operation legit again.
In the background to all that computing, I was half listening to the maddening drivel from Republican Senator Susan Collins, who's vote will end up swinging this whole Brett Kavanaugh confirmation craziness in the worst direction possible.
I mean, what are we coming to as a society when Republican Senators have no problem voting this beer-guzzling sexual predator  into one of the highest positions in the country, but his own drinking buddies would not. Not to mention the 700+ law school professors, the American Bar Association, and the former Supreme Court Justices who also publicly stated that this man was an incompetent baffoon.
Good lord, the tides are turning, and this looks to be one evil night ahead of us.
My son, however, remains blissfully unaware of this situation, at least for now. Not even one year old yet, his main concerns are whether or not we feed him on time, which is fine, but his future is being carved for him by the swine currently holding public office. And it needs stating that these bastards work for US, it's not the other way around, but sweet jesus it doesn't feel that way.
Well, let's hope for a miracle so that people like my son can grow up in a world where we damn well believe survivors of sexual assault, and where we don't elect ill-tempered dope fiends to the Supreme Court.
