I have tried my best to keep this blog free of politics because quite frankly, I like hiking more. But for the longest time now politicians on both sides of the aisle have proven that they are nothing but lying cretins who thrive on a scorched earth policy. I have listened to the accusations being thrown at Brett Kavanaugh since he was nominated. But one thing I have not heard, especially from the left is, what about the man? What if he is truly innocent?
Now before you get all self-righteous and start calling me names and saying I don’t care, it is about time to talk about the other side of this. We all have friends, relatives and acquaintances who are male. What if one of them were accused with something as horrible as what we have seen? Knowing your friend, relative, or acquaintance as well as you do, would you immediately jump on the she’s right and he’s wrong band wagon?
I have an almost 22 year old son who I have spent years preaching the importance of avoiding situations that might be misconstrued. I have gone on and on about drinking, over drinking and using drugs at parties. I have tried to raise him with a moral system that would make him think about putting himself into a situation that could damaging. I hope that he has listened. To this point he has not been in any type of compromising situation that could ruin his life. Is it by luck or through his upbringing? Or both?
Is it just a matter of time before he becomes one of the accused?
Of course I am not saying women are not sexually assaulted. They are. But’s let’s focus on that instead of demonizing every living male. The calls for all Republican males to be castrated is repulsive. Where is the anger at that.
Yes, women do make up stories for whatever the reason might be. Yes, that is a fact. But the left keeps coming up with more and more ridiculous claims. Think about that when it is your son, father, cousin or friend who has been accused. Will it matter if you know he is innocent? If you know that he couldn’t have done what he is accused of? According to the left it won’t matter. He’s guilty. He has to pay!
Be it through career, job or reputation, (or all three) he will pay!!!!
Once again, think about it if your friend, relative or acquaintance was on the receiving end of a vicious attack like this. I’ll bet you would sing a different tune.
As noted on some of my Facebook posts recently, if you are in any way offended by this post, I don’t care. Comments are more than welcome but please keep them clean.
I’ll end my rant here.
I believe Dr. Ford, but not some of the other accusations which sound bananas. In any case, there are no heroes here, as it turns out Dr. Ford asked that her letter be kept confidential and she was betrayed by the Democrats for their own agenda to make her a public spectacle. It’s all horrible. It’s a loss for our country in every way. We seem to be going backwards.

I agree with you on several points. I do believe that something happened to Dr. Ford. However, I think that it also her responsibility to know for sure who it was. To just make allegations without proof isn’t fair to anyone. It hurts the man and does nothing to further help the cause for woman. As you said, it is a loss for both sides. Thanks very much for the comments!
