A Brief #MeToo Related Note…

“Judges have a special responsibility to promote appropriate behavior and report instances of misconduct by others, including other judges,”  states the executive summary of a report submitted to the Judicial Conference of the United States, referring to the workplace.

No, everybody has a special responsibility to promote appropriate behavior and report instances of misconduct by others—including judges, lawyers, artists, CEOs, managers, actors, journalists..all “others”) in the workplace.  Judges aren’t special. Anyone who allows a co-worker, a colleague, a superior, a manager or an officer to engage in workplace harassment without taking steps to expose it and end it is complicit in the victimization of the individuals harmed.

Someone ask Bill Clinton, who, hilariously, now says that he supports #MeToo, if he agrees with the above statement. How many people, do you think, had to fail their responsibility to promote appropriate conduct by him in the workplace, for him to obtain power and influence, and convert it to great wealth? Hundreds? Thousands? Tens of thousands? More?

Who else should we ask?

      • When it rains, it pours. For some of the same reasons, it now comes to light that Al Gore’s irredeemably pissed at him.

        Al Gore blamed Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky for costing him the presidency – but power-mad Hillary had already torn apart the president and the VP

        I LUV the smell of Lefty-on-Lefty Cage Porn in the morning (or afternoon, or evening).

        It smells like…KARMA.

        • “Lefty-on-Lefty Cage Porn” – LOVE it!
          (the concept, AND your name for it)

          Trying to be serious for a moment: I have said – can’t remember if I have ever said it here, but sure do hope I have, at some time – that Bl Cnton DID indeed cost Gore the presidency. Not because of the fooling around with Monica, but rather because he (WJC) did not resign. Of this, I am absolutely certain: Had Bl resigned, Gore would have won in 2000 by a landslide. (Younger Bush, or even McCain, might have knocked him out in ’04, depending on how Albert handled 9-11…I enjoy pondering “how history might have been different, yet still basically the same.”)

          I’m frankly disappointed with the Democrats’ failure to recognize the POWER of women that existed even as far back as the 1990s. Just look at what one little intern did to BOTH of the Cntons. I had predicted in 1993, in my usual Eeyore-ish way, that it was looking like we were going to have to put up with 8 years of Bl, followed by 8 years of Hlary. But, Monica fixed all that, bless her heart – a truly POWERFUL woman. She killed the beast! For that, I guess I should forever spell her last name “Ewnsky.” On par with the Cntons: No “Li” in her. (Same for James Carvle.)

          • Gennifer Flowers weighs in on Laura Ingraham: “Clinton (is) not ‘as good of a liar as he used to be’ and that he’s ‘afraid.’ She even urged him to be prosecuted for his ‘sex crimes’ like Harvey Weinstein and Bill Cosby, invoking the rape allegation made by Juanita Broaddrick.”

            “I had predicted in 1993, in my usual Eeyore-ish way,”

            Same way with investing strategy; hear what I have to say, then do a 180.
