This #SaturdayMorning we're addressing a complaint from those who say they won't bother voting this November.

What does it matter? they think. Gerrymandering has rigged the election. I'm in a red state or a red district. My vote won't count.

Here's why it matters.
(2) The GOP has erected many barriers to voting, including voter ID laws & lax security that undermines voter confidence in elections. But perhaps their most powerful tool is voter suppression through gerrymandering.

It's how the GOP won the House in 2012…
(3) Gerrymandering is when state legislatures draw up districts in order to heavily weight conservative votes. Republican gerrymandering after the 2010 census helped win a majority of House seats for the GOP in 2012 even though they got fewer votes across congressional districts.

This #SundayMorning let's chat about what has become obvious during the Kavanaugh hearings.

We're still deep in the patriarchy, peeps.

The #MeToo movement has exposed the pervasiveness & persistence of misogyny. How do we fight back & dismantle sexism once and for all?
(2) Let's start here.

One of the biggest problems is while women make up half the population, we don't have control of the institutions that have power over our lives.

From executive boardrooms to the halls of Congress, men's interests are & have always been OVER represented.
(3) That means men's voices are heard more often & that they are more involved in decisions. In business, in politics & in the media.

Despite GOP's rage-fueled defense of "good men" targeted by #MeToo the facts don't support that men are a minority being victimized in America.

3) #SNL should not take any breaks until after 2020.

Well, it is #SundayMorning and the lectionary readings again preach themselves. For those of you who don't know what a lectionary is, it is an assigned 3 yr cycle of readings for churches -- prepped long ago.

The text for this week is the story of Esther.
About a woman -- in this case, the Queen -- who stands up against male authorities and insists on justice.

(Yeah, you can't make these things up.)
The king and Haman went in to feast with Queen Esther. On the second day, as they were drinking wine, the king again said to Esther, “What is your petition, Queen Esther? It shall be granted you. And what is your request? Even to the half of my kingdom, it shall be fulfilled.”

Democrats response to Kavanuagh defending his honor against uncorroborated accusation? Attack him for his skin color. #SundayMorning #Racism
This is the VERY DEFINITION of racism. Here from encyclopedia Britannica:
Even if Trump DID withdraw Kavanuagh nomination and nominate someone else, the charges would be “racist” next. They’d produce an accuser from 30 years ago claiming he/she used the “N” word. Next nominee would be attacked as homophobic, etc. The Democrat playbook never changes.

Kellyanne Conway: ‘I’m a Victim of Sexual Assault,’ But Slams FBI Probe of Kavanaugh #SundayMorning #SundayMotivation…
Jake Tapper: As a survivor of this, does that not make you think, when you hear somebody like Professor Ford, does that not make you think these women need to be heard?

Kellanne Conway: They should all be heard. And they should be heard in courts of law.
The incredible contortions Kellyanne Conway must have gone through in order to come up with this angle: “The Democrats could have avoided all of this just by coming forward earlier. This woman got a say because of the Republican party” #SundayMorning

Stop calling Falwell, Graham and their ilk “fake Christians.” Historically Christianity is often about the pursuit of power. Pretending otherwise isn’t harmless; it keeps us from grasping the theocratic threat.

#Exvangelical #EmptyThePews #SundayMorning…
When you dismiss Trumpist evangelicals as “fake Christians,” despite them representing the overwhelming majority of white evangelicals, you enable key news outlets’ normalizing extremism. If Graham is “fake,” “real” evangelicals must be fine with pluralism, right? BUT THEY AREN’T
Mussolini, Hitler, Franco, all had massive Christian backing. These are historical, empirically unassailable facts. Deal with it.…

Leland Keyer's denial of any knowledge of this party or Kavanaugh by NO MEANS indicates that the incident didn't happen. There are many poss reasons for her denial. #SundayMorning via @politico
2/"It's not surprising that Ms. Keyser has no recollection of the evening as they did not discuss it. It's also unremarkable that Ms. Keyser does not remember attending a specific gathering 30 years ago at which nothing of consequence happened to her.
3/"Dr. Ford of course will never forget this gathering because of what happened to her there," Katz said. #LelandKeyser

The New Testament reading from today's lectionary preaches itself -- and it offers wisdom for all to live these difficult days. James 3:13-4:2. #SundayMorning
The passage begins with a question:

"Who is wise and understanding among you?"
The author of the letter says that wisdom is known through character and action:

"Show by your good life that your works are done with gentleness born of wisdom."

This #SundayMorning we're delving into a question that's on everyone's mind these days. With only 51 days left until midterms, the forecast for Dems to take the House is looking pretty sunny.

Is it possible for Dems to take the Senate as well?
(2) First off, anything is possible. Trump wasn't favored to win the Presidency either and here we are. I guess the real question becomes is it likely for Dems to take the Senate in the upcoming midterms.

The answer is NO. It's not likely.
Here's why.…
(3) To take the Senate, Dems would need to hold onto every single seat they currently have, including 10 Dem senators in states Trump won by huge margins like West Virginia and North Dakota.

Senators in the most trouble? Nelson, Heitkamp, and McCaskill.…

I love today's lectionary readings -- which contrast foolishness and wisdom. From the book James, we get this warning about thoughtless speech:
"How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire! And the tongue is a fire. The tongue is placed among our members as a world of iniquity; it stains the whole body, sets on fire the cycle of nature, and is itself set on fire by hell.... /2
....For every species of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by the human species, but no one can tame the tongue-- a restless evil, full of deadly poison." 3/

He was supposed to be deported on 9/11. Due to protests, that date has been moved to 9/21.

1) You are not crazy.
They’re chameleons.

It’s Bible study coffee time.
Sunday, September 16, 2018.
2) We’re picking up here on the theme of non-consent.
Do not commit evil in my name.
Just say No.
3) #SundayMorning Bible studies for me correlate to the Torah reading of the prior week, which means we will be looking at Deuteronomy 31:1 - 31:30, Parashat Vayeilech / פרשת וילך

This #SundayMorning we're digging into a question that has perplexed several news organizations looking into Brett Kavanaugh's financials.

How do you rack up between $60,000-$200,000 in credit card debt on baseball tickets and then make the debt disappear a year later?
(2) First off let's explain what the hell is going on here. Brett Kavanaugh's finances are super suspicious. Kavanaugh makes about $250K as a judge and from lecturing at Harvard, but he also owes on a $1.2 million home that has been refinanced twice.…
(3) In fact, Kavanaugh's finances tell a story of how he has lived beyond his means for the better part of a decade. Several times, his debt burden has exceeded his liquid assets.

That's not alarming on its own, but the details of that debt matter.…

I see this mistake a LOT.

"12PM" and "12AM" aren't times.

The "M" in "AM" and "PM" stands for "meridiam," as in a divider. The strike of 12 noon divides the day into before noon (AM) & after noon (PM) parts.

Use 12N, or use 12:01PM.
Use 12M, or use 12:01AM.

If you use "12AM" or "12PM," it's ambiguous. Using "midnight" can also be ambiguous.

If you say, "Wednesday at 12AM," what does that even mean?!
1. Wed noon?
2. Tue midnight leading into Wed?
3. Wed midnight leading into Thu?

If you say "Wed at 12:01AM," that's unambiguous. 👍
P.S. "By convention, 12AM denotes midnight and 12PM denotes noon."…

I think that "convention" is due to so many people making the mistake over and over again, and so we just accept it.

This is perjury, plain and simple.

Feel free to tag your Senator in the replies and tell him/her what you think of the @GOP burying the record of—and rushing to confirm—this extremely crooked nominee.
As the incontrovertible evidence of #Kavanaugh’s perjury in 2004, 2006 and 2018 piles up, it’s hard to argue with @brianefallon’s suggestion that #Democrats make a criminal referral to the Justice Department. #NoSCOTUSVote
“By his own standard, Kavanaugh should clearly be impeached,” writes Lisa Graves in @slate. Graves wrote some of the stolen memos that Kavanaugh lied to the Senate about. (via @maddow) #ImpeachKavanaugh #BlockBrett

.@NPRWeekend just interviewed @KSPrior, because we can never highlight enough far-right extremist views. Prior actually claimed Trump and @HillaryClinton were equivalent in their treatment of women (!!!) and applauded her students being disenchanted with the electoral system.
.@KSPrior teaches at Jerry Falwell's #racist @LibertyU where last year graduates returned diplomas en masse due to Fallwell Jr's grotesque support of Trump.

Prior is touting #BrettKavanaugh to overturn #RoevWade.
It was an instructive interview for the utter lack of pushback by @NPRWeekend, which replicated the same MSM trend of allowing the alt-right free range spew.

@KSPrior didn't vote for Trump, but she does, clearly, support his choices, like #BrettKavanaugh.
