So again:

Not suggesting anything, because I don't know what, if anything, actually happened - just pointing out that quite a large chunk of change is being made here.

Is there something about the above statement that you find to be ambiguous or confusing?
Because it seems pretty straightforward to me.

As Heretic pointed out, this is what you said earlier in the thread... (the exchange after "Bullshit.")

Bullshit.

A full investigation would end any speculation.

And rule out hypnosis.

Yeah, hypnosis does sound rather silly, doesn't it?
But do you know what doesn't sound silly, and what would not surprise me in the least?

$$$$$$$$$


So you did suggest that money was the motive for Dr Ford to step forward... you specifically said that it "would not surprise you in the least."  So your answer is indeed "ambiguous and confusing" in light of your prior post. Are you retracting your prior post?

No, I'm not retracting anything.
It's indisputable that a good sum of money is there to be made, but I have no idea who the beneficiary or beneficiaries may ultimately end up being.
Do you?

You can't deny that you suggested that Dr Blasey Ford came forward because of money. because that's what you said.

I'd be shocked if Ms Ford just pockets the money and walks away. Especially in light of what the money was raised for...

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/christine-blasey-ford-gofundme-brett-kavanaugh-allegations-senate-testimony/

Quote :
"Due to death threats, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford ... and her family have had to leave their residence and arrange for private security," the page description reads. "Let's create a fund to cover her security expenses, to do just a bit to make it easier for women in her position to come forward despite great risks."

The page specifies that extra funds raised "will go to women's organizations and/or into an account to cover similar costs incurred in comparable situations."

Dr Ford is a multi-millionaire.  It's ludicrous to suggest that she came forward for monetary reasons.

No need to get upset with me.
Just reportin' the news.


A second, separate campaign has raised over $500,000 from over 11,000 donors on behalf of Ford. "Help Christine Blasey Ford" was created by a GoFundMe account titled "Team Christine Blasey Ford."
"The money raised from this campaign is going directly to the Ford Family," the GoFundMe description reads.


(Plus, her lawyers are working pro bono, so there just might be a little something left over.)

People concerned about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s fall are offering their ribs and organs

https://www.kansascity.com/news/nation-world/article221343550.html#storylink=cpy

"A man called in and offered to donate a rib. He identified himself only as 'Adam', no last name.
And another man, identified only as the 'Tin Woodman', offered to donate his heart - if only he had one."

Do you favor family separation when families come to this country seeking asylum?

No, but that's not happening anymore, is it?



Families still being separated at border — months after Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy reversed

Quote :
The Trump administration has quietly resumed separating immigrant families at the border, in some cases using vague or unsubstantiated allegations of wrongdoing or minor violations against the parents, including charges of illegally re-entering the country, as justification.

Over the last three months, lawyers at Catholic Charities, which provides legal services to immigrant children in government custody in New York, have discovered at least 16 new separation cases. They say they have come across such instances by chance and via their own sleuthing after children were put into temporary foster care and shelters with little or no indication that they arrived at the border with their parents.

ProPublica stumbled upon one more case late last month after receiving a call from a distraught Salvadoran father who had been detained in South Texas, and whose 4-year-old son, Brayan, had literally been yanked from his grasp by a Customs and Border Protection agent after they crossed the border and asked for asylum. Julio, the father, asked to be identified only by his first name because he was fleeing gang violence and worried about the safety of relatives back home.

It's very reassuring to see that the old gang is here debating.

Agreed.  

BTW - I haven’t posted much lately, but it’s not from lack of interest...

I’m currently in the process of moving across the country, so as soon as things settle down a bit, I expect to be posting regularly again.  In the meantime, I’ll post whenever I can.
