    I’m sure she doesn’t give a crap about lgbtq people of any age just like she didn’t give a crap about the people in Flint Michigan she help to poison and then profiteered off their suffering.

    The proficiency and growth thing wasn’t necessarily fair. The an existential question and he set it up in a weird way, however, it is quite easy to answer so I don’t feel bad for here. Profiency is an goal growth is the point of the exercise they aren’t mutually exclusive

    These hearings are a waste of time. They question these wealthy people and clearly it means nothing because at the end of the day they leave these hearing go home to their huge homes and bask in their wealth.

    That wasn’t even fair they all knew she was new to the game and instead of educating her they just slammed her clearly they don’t like her. And clearly she wasn’t welcomed I just don’t understand why she still took that spot despite knowing they do not like her he laughed as he was giving a half ass explanation on what he was talking about like he was looking down on her (as he should) and she even tried in the best way she could to let him know I don’t know that question they didn’t go over that with me. Please give me a hint or be more transparent which he just told her with his body language go fuck your self. So the other guy had to chime in and say look bro we didn’t do this to everyone else and that made the bitch smug because then she started trying to bite back like she had some supporters but the other dude just felt bad seeing her get slammed. These fucken rich idiots would take anything so long as it makes them feel like there relevant and doing something with the sorry ass life.

    I miss Al Franken. There was controversy which forced him to resign. But there was also controversy surrounding the controversy. In the long run we've lost something I losing Al. Whatever you think about the man at the time of his resignation there is no arguing with the fact that he was a conscientious and compassionate senator.

    Could it be said that BDV's inability to distinguish between proficiency and growth might indicate that she didn't take an active role in her children's education? Or she has removed herself from that knowledge years ago when her last child graduated?

    At this point I think most people understand that the people trump chose to run his cabinet are nothing more than faces of the companies they represent - Betsy is simply the person they send to these hearings and to take the blame she’s not doing anything at all to run the job.
