    The longer this ass (and White Nationalists like him) are running this country, the farther the divide.
    Uprisings will not be at the fault of minorities. It will be Trump's doing.

    I assume you'd be in favor of some sort of quota then?

    True, again, but Trump needed a dozen female lawyers to nominate. There are literally hundreds of thousands who hold conservative views, as most private practice is paid for by business, and few business owners will tolerate liberalism in their lawyers.

    That's an interesting viewpoint.

    Most of the kids I were in school with were on their way to becoming lawyers and there were quite a few conservatives among them so it stands to reason that there would be quite a few out there practicing today.
    Thanks from Madeline

    I think of how Rush Limbaugh's commentary on drug abusers changed when he got into legal trouble over his addiction. Partially it changed because he was caught -- but I think partially it was because he had trouble putting himself in drug addict's shoes before that. He needed to have a very direct lesson in order to gain empathy there. He was able to coast through most of his life without ever needing to develop that empathy.

    That's the inertia which allows a higher percentage of white males to stay conservative throughout even extensive education and meeting professional hurdles.
    Ms. Amelia,

    Wow, you are a pretty racist woman, wot?

    I can't figure out why anyone would be surprised that a guy who before and during the campaign so blatantly displayed his misogyny and racist tendencies would do this.

    Because, this is a great thread. And like all great threads, it is vulnerable to be rendered a pie-throwing comedy skit in a brief sequence of posts.
    Thanks from pragmatic

    I can complain about an injury even if I expect it.

    Watch me complain about snow in February.

    Nice.

    Precisely what Øbama did, appoint unqualified people who happened to be women just because they were women. The 'wise latina' among them.
