    Oh I don't doubt that a bit, I am just saying it is a trashy thing to put your name too in public. It is a real Christian attitude, congrats.

    I believe that after Trump wins and the Democrats stop fighting reality, we should make putting robust protections against voter fraud the top priority for the next four years

    I believe we need news crews documenting the claim that bums are bused around to vote at multiple polling sites. saying it without proving it is pointless.

    And then we flush the NFA like the turd it is.

    As for her family I regret that she has passed! She still was a Mother and Grandmother to those who cared about her!
    But as far as here opinions in the Court definitely not!
    It always amazed me that Her and Judge Anthony Scalia were good friends and each was normally on the opposite side of many decisions!
    She sided as we all remember with those attacking our Second Amendment. And that gun companies could be sued for crimes committed with their products.
    Then on other occasions unfortunately She voted against our founding fathers Constitutional guidelines.
    And She was totally in favor of Obama Care and fining those who did not participate in the program. Of course we can thank Roberts for that as well being the turn coat he is.
    He normally is no longer a Constitutionalist but swaying with the wind!
    I think an appointment is now due to protect our Second Amendment and to protect us from a Liberal Socialist becoming a justice that we would have to live with for years.
    IMO another Constitutionalist Judge would protect our Second Amendment even more.
    Notice, I did not say Republican I said Constitutionalist! One side of the court is political and ignored the Letter of the Constitution as Ginsberg did on occasion!
    If Biden gets elected and can choose the new Justice we are Sc**wed! He will just be a Puppet for the Socialist Progressives! So I guess it boils down to, do we want to take the chance of a Socialist Progressive being appointed to the Supreme Court for LIFE or not? And do we really think Biden would be the one making the decision if elected? NOT!
    But for Justice Ginsberg and her family! May she RIP!

    I respect her hard fight for equality under the law, particularly for women, all at a time when "the law" on the books ran roughshod over women in terms of nearly every aspect of professional, legal and financial life. Kudos for that.

    As for many of her "activist" positions that went beyond the letter and spirit of the Constitution's requirements and constraints, I disagreed with many of them.

    Always respected her intellect and determination.

    Just wish she had a better appreciation of the RKBA and the fundamental purpose of the BOR in mind when she addressed the RKBA over the years. Wasn't in the citizens' best interests when it came to the RKBA. Wouldn't have occurred to her to treat it like the constraints in the 1A, 6A and other prohibitions; at least, legally within the realm of SCOTUS decisions, she never did.

    The thing I find disgusting about this whole thing is she literally wasn’t even cold before all the arguing began. Our society is going to hell.

    Pitiful, ain't it?

    I figured it'd be at least a day. Wasn't even an hour.

    Realities of a heavily partisan final 40 days before an election, for better or worse. Such is life in a country of paid mercenaries who'd largely sell their mothers C.O.D. to get an edge.

    In my parents generation they would have had some days of remembrance and would have very respectfully talked about the future of the court.

    I can envision our current generation tearing at her corpse.
    Sad.

    I've got at least one family member who laughed and crowed out loud, when Scalia passed. Relations. Where they got that, I'll never know. None of us were raised that way.

    Sad, ugly times.

    The problem I have with pushing through a new Justice, is those who are championing it are the same ones own blocked it for Obama. I expect folks moral and a ethical stands to remain consistent in consistent situations. The flip-flop by the Republican senators is disgusting to me. Far to much situational morality.

    Seems none of them is willing to walk their own talk. Not about anything. DJT was scum now they back him 100%.

    They are all lying cheating scum who have sold their constituencies down the road to do what is good for big business, big pharma, and the industrial mega companies. Very few years the. Give up service to whatever the polls say their voters are concerned about. Then go back to doing what their rich master demand in return for their campaign contributions.

    Here is someone I won't miss. Susan Collins. She does not want the nomination until the next (!) president is elected. With this kind of a Republican who needs a Democrat. And take Mitt with you, Susan.

    That is not for the court to decide. Congress can determine the size of the court and if the president votes yes the size of the court changes.

    They don't really care, it's the fighting they are afraid of. The smarter ones will let it be as long as no grenades are flying.

    Changing procedures like McConnell is like one team moving the goal line every time the other team get the ball. It was either wrong for Obama's nominee, or it is wrong now. I don't know how anyone could argue that point with a straight face.

    McConnel is conducting the Senate as it would be conducted in a banana republic. You might think that it is cute now, but times will change.

    It would be fair, and legal, if the Democrats win house, senate and presidency, as is possible, that in Jan. if they increased the number of judges to 13 or 15 and give the Republicans a dose of their own medicine, but I don't think we have any Democrats who would play that kind of dirty game. It would start a partisan court war that would never stop every time the pendulum swung.

    Disagree. The Biden Rule was that LAME DUCK president does not get to nominate justices in their final year.

    PLUS, in the face of the Democrat Party's commitment to litigating the election it would be derelict to have an 8 member bench that may split 4-4 on whether or not certain votes count or not.

    It was Biden who first didn't let a president nominate a successor in the last year of their term. They have each done it once, lets get back to following the constitution. President picks a candidate, senate advises and consents.
