It’s a statement. A government by the people for the people. A million people were willing to sign that petition expressing their displeasure in his actions.

Did a million people really sign it? I honestly find that doubtful. A million people is quite a lot of people. I suspect somebody wrote some kind of astroturfing script that submitted lots of fake signatures or something. I'm not saying that there aren't a bunch of people who are mad at Clarence Thomas. But a million just seems farfetched.

And even if they did, it is less than one third or one percent of the population where he presides.

Then I guess people are ok with the Supreme Court decision and I can accept that.

lol not what I was saying. but internet petitions usually don't hold any weight. we would have to make sitting members of congress fear for reelection if they didn't take actions on this. And unfortunately 65% or so are nearly guaranteed to win their next election, or are far enough away from their election where it won't matter.

They never actually investigated Kavanaugh. They just gathered up some messages, forwarded them to the WH, and then were told to look no further.
