Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I found it odd that in all the pictures of RBG FOX showed tonight after her death, in any pictures with others, Biden was there………….Ginsberg, O’Neal and Biden.   Ginsberg and Biden.    Odd?

I didn’t admire her because she was a leftwing advocate in many women panels I saw her in, but I did admire her courage through many cancers and awful treatments she endured.

    Not unlike most people we could do without her sins will not follow her to her grave. I always did despise the sawed off creep in black robes.

  2. Hmm. I just posted how I feel about this.
    I won’t sully your blog with it.

    I agree with you. Only admire her fortitude in keeping on. I recall her hearing a case that she SHOULD have recused herself from because he husband was closely linked to the case. She and Scalia were close. And she stands apart from Sotemayor (who should NEVER have been appointed). (At least Kagan was qualified.) Now the election becomes another battle for the future of the nation, as Trump has excelled in the appointment of justices. And the left will have even more energy to push the breathing corpse into office.

    The other big thing – her praising the inchoate and non-Republic constitution in South Africa. In a speech in Egypt, I believe. Elevating it OVER the far superior American one grounded in liberty/

    Thomas Babington Macaulay once remarked that his greatest fear was that our Constitution was “all sail and no anchor”. From what I’ve seen over the years, the Notorious RBG, while not always allied with the anchor, was generally a link in the chain that bound that anchor to the boat. Her positions on women”s rights are unassailable, even though some, or most of us, believe her positions on the rights of the unborn are open to question and debate.

    To my mind, RBG, was the last lucid liberal with whom it was possible to reason. Her friendship with the late Justice Scalia speaks unequivocally to that. What did they see, and have, in common that apparently escapes the rest of us?

    In this day and age, when it seems that the politicians are bent upon setting each of us against the other, what do we need to learn about getting along?

  6. I was done with Ruth Bader Ginsburg when she advocated for THIS, an issue about which I feel very strongly.

    She knew she was dying for months…instead of permitting an orderly transition, she chose to leave the court in chaos knowing a 4 to 4 court would be disastrous with the possible legal challenges to the election. A Justice does not decide who it is that should be chosen to follow her. It is not some club. The President of the USA makes that decision. The Senate confirms.
    Now we will have a forever TV extravaganza on her funeral without regard to the damage she has done to our country,

    I agree with Bunkerville. She could have, and should have stepped down when she was no longer able to fulfill her responsibilities. That said … I obviously did not know this woman and I will not pretend to be her equal in matters of law. Whether she was a saint, or a sinner, must depend upon how well we understand complex legal issues and her opinions relating thereto, and even then, it doesn’t matter. All that matters vis-à-vis the U.S. Constitution is how the SCOTUS rules; they have the final say —which makes the nomination of justices a crucial issue in US presidential elections and to our way of life. Nominating judges to the SCOTUS is the duty of the president. Before deciding who to vote for in presidential elections, a wise voter must consider what kind of justice the presidential candidate is likely to nominate, and then try to imagine how that one person could impact your life, and lives of your children and grandchildren over many future generations.

    Voting is an awesome responsibility … few people who do vote understand the long-term consequences of choosing unwisely. In this, our education system has failed us. Most people today never had a class in civics.

    The timing couldn’t have been better for the GOP. It also happened as at the beginning of a Jewish holiday celebration. Personally, we got tired of the constant coverage last night and switched to a movie. Yes, I also did admire her being what, the 2nd woman on the bench? It makes one wonder how they could remain a Jewish Democrat when Trump has done so much for Israel. That has to be a conundrum for them.

    AOW and Bunkerville + 1. I am HUGE on the foreign court precedents, too. Kennedy also referenced these. It’s part of the drive to erase our borders, nationhood, and unique identity. Being governed by laws whose makers have no association with our country, and no election by or obligation to our citizens. I think we fought a revolution over something much less egregious than that! Grrrrrrr

    @Mal- NO conundrum, she was a NY Jew and its rare indeed when one strays from the plantation. Having Jewish next door neighbors, (Legal immigrants from a foreign country-Queens, NY) who are really great neighbors and fun people who swear by Biden and the left, all haters of Israel, even as they construct in their back yard a sukkah or succah (/ˈsʊkə/; Hebrew: סוכה‎ Hebrew pronunciation: [suˈka]; plural, סוכות Hebrew pronunciation: [suˈkot] sukkot or sukkos or sukkoth, often translated as “booth”) is a temporary hut constructed for use during the week-long Jewish festival of Sukkot (starts October 3rd) they are woefully lamenting the passing of Saint Ginsberg. Its like trying to explain how after 9/11 America became captivated with those who are on the road to bringing us sharia law and have given them more than equal rights including the right to convert the nation.

    Thanks, Peter. Yes, I know there are so many Jews that don’t back Israel! I have a Israeli born Canadian friend with homes in Toronto and Vegas who served in the Israeli Air Force and he gets so disgusted by those folks. Rami and his wife Batia can’t understand their betarying Israel. We also know there were Jews in Germany that worked against the Jews, too. I can’t explain it.
    They simply denied their own heritage.
