K          “We agree on something!”

J          “You agree with me on something!”

. . .

J          “The lie is the backbone of contemporary civilization.  But lies are costly and inefficient and not good because you know that you still must commit resources – time and money – to discern the truth. ”

K          “Lying is a way of life.”

. . .

J          “Asking a potential justice how he or she might rule in the future is not allowed in our shallow and faux political politeness.  Asking a justice how he or she respects a ruling in the past – a precedent in a system purportedly underpinned by stare decisis and the rule of precedent – is appropriate.  The ambitious potential Justices were asked about Roe v. Wade . . . and appear to have lied to the Senate to get the job.”

K          “The Constitution states that the judicial officers can remain in office for ‘good behaviour’.  It does not state that they can be removed only for bad behavior.  The test is all well and good and places the burden of proof and persuasion on the judge or Justice.  A procedure should be established to require every federal judge to evince to the satisfaction of the public that he or she has exhibited ‘good behavior’ on the bench every four years.” 

. . .

K          “There is no final decision from the Supreme Beings, so as the lawyers would say the issue is not ripe.”

J          “The Democrats are betting on the January 6 hearings to save them this November not a negative response to the likely decision.”
