    I had someone on my feed make a snarky remark when Scalia died. This same person also said he was a little put off when people rejoiced when Bin Laden was killed.

    I always thought it was special that Scalia and Ginsburg were close friends.

    I think what's bad is that relationships have become so politicized that that surprises folks (and yes, it was cool).

    On Election Day 1988, I walked around my college campus wearing my red jacket with blue Bush/Quayle 88 stickers and Elect Trent Lott stickers. My best friend was a black man who was walking around dressed much better than I with a black/white Dukakis leaflet easily readable above his pocket.

    My advisor said that watching the two of us walk down the hall together calmly conversing and not raising voices was one of the best things he'd seen. (Keep in mind the school was still segregated when that advisor began).
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    And then I read this kind of uncompassionate tripe:

    Justice Ginsburg is very ill. Another Justice appointment inevitable and soon. Bad news for the left.


    That's from Bill O'Reilly.

    Didn't she already have a lobotomy?

    I about halfway think Ginsburg and Scalia might have been more than just friends....Anyways if RBG does in fact dIE during Trumps tenure, I canít even begin I imagine the (pathetic) resistance the left will put up against her replacement.

    They will probably find out when he was 11 years old, he pulled the pigtails of a girl and pushed her down. They will note his history of abuse of women and we will have to endure months and months of trials and media stories. He will not be confirmed. The next guy we will discover he passed gas and pulled the covers over his wife's head when he was 20.

    As far as Ginsburg goes, I wish her well. I do feel that a supreme court justice should not be a lifetime appointment. At some point you are just too old to do the job. I am old enough to remember when Thurgood Marshall retired. When asked why he was retiring, his reply was "I am old".

    Probably won't be as pathetic as McConnell not allowing Obama to fill the vacant seat during his last term.

    Maybe she would have retired long ago if she saw that Congress would do their jobs..

    She strikes me as a pretty tough lady. I suspect she'll beat this and be with us a while yet.

    Well you can thank the Joe Biden rule for that.

    Well Iím surprised that she didnít retire and let Obama replace her seat but thatís on her. She may still be in the bench until she is 95.

    As I have said many times before, every branch of government should have a minimum and maximum age. As for president, congress and the Supreme Court it should 35-72.

    Exactly. Sometimes you just have to accept you are too old to do the job. Now certain head football coaches should be allowed to coach as long as they want.

    I hope she does not feel too old to do the job until after Trump no longer has nomination powers.

    I bet she was counting on a Clinton victory and now has to hang on and hope Trump loses in 2020.

    Conservatives could get a death grip on the high court if Trump is re-elected. I was thinking about this yesterday and looked up the current court and their ages.

    Clinton appointees
    Ginsberg 85
    Breyer 80

    Bush41 appointee
    Thomas 70

    Bush 43 appointees
    Alito 68
    Roberts 63

    Obama appointees
    Sotomayor 64
    Kagan 58

    Trump appointees
    Kavanaugh 53
    Gorsuch 51

    Iím not one that usually thinks about the SCOTUS in an election, but it will be a big issue in 2020. I am sure Ginsberg and Breyer will hang on as long as they can, but there comes a point where you have to throw in the towel. Can you imagine a Supreme Court with four Trump judges on it? Or more if Thomas decides 30 years on the job is enough for him?
