Ginsburg Falls at Work

Recommended Posts

Yikes.  She might not last much longer.

She's 85.  Looks very frail.

As much as I disagree with Ginsberg on certain philosophical issues, I do hope she's okay or recovers quickly.

She’s broken ribs before and recovered, but she’s also older and fading fast. I could never hope someone dies over political shit, no matter the stakes. If we don’t have decency towards each other when it comes to life, then we’re done as a great country. Now if she wants to retire, I’ll be happy to give her a ride home! 🤠👍

She's lucky she didn't break her hip.  Much worse.  But ribs are painful.  It really sucks getting old.

I can see Democrats following her around with a defribillater for the rest of the Trump presidency through 2024.

If Ginsburg assumes room temperature and Trump gets to nominate her replacement the shit show the Democrats would raise would make the Kavanaugh debacle tame in comparison.

What's a defribillater?

That’s the sick place we’re at as a society.

Stephen Breyer is also 80, he will be retiring withing a few years I imagine.  

But Dems have less leverage in protesting another SC Nominee.  Unless they can find something tangible, their not going to be able to do much.  And just crying Roe v Wade isn't tangible. 

So what a conservative court really means is that Democrats can't rely on the courts to make their legislation for them.  Dems will have to do it the old fashioned way and make laws!

RBG is just stubbornly sticking around for political reasons. 

She should just step down and let the chips fall where they may.  She falls to sleep in hearings.  It's way past time to retire.

Trump did his job by preventing Clinton from gaining power and getting us two solid SCOTUS justices.  One more would be icing on the cake.  Two more is almost too much to hope for.

I don't get the SCOTUS obsession. It's just one branch of government. They've only had a handful of rulings in our entire history that have truly altered our society.

Here is a current example with the SCOTUS could have a big influence.

Can President Trump get rid of DACA or not?

It's not just the SCOTUS.  The lower court appointments are more important

In the grand scheme of things, the DACA ruling is a blip. It's not nation/cultural altering. I'm talking Marbury v Madison, Dredd Scott, Brown v Board of Ed, Roe v Wade, etc. SCOUTS can have a huge impact on our nation, but it is very rare when it does. It just seems to garner outsized attention for the impact it actually has.

Probably more important, but the focus always seems to be on SCOTUS. It's like how people value Fed elections over locals.

I know, poking fun at her before she was hurt was fun.  Poking fun at her organ donors is fair game tho.
