Re: SUPREME COURT Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dead at 87

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a legend in her time. Deservedly so.

Her so-called radical stance was that women deserve equal protection under the law.

Her so-called radical stance is that women are entitled as adults to make decisions about their own bodies without intervention from the state, just as men make decisions about their bodies.

(Hint: it's based on the 14th Amendment.)

Ginsburg's positions have been pretty consistent. It's the make-up of the Supreme Court that has shifted to the right.

CNN this evening is showing the documentary film RBG. Highly recommended for those who can pull away from Fox News and Joe Schmo's right-winger YouTube videos.

It was Mitch McConnell (Republican House Majority leader) who first broke the political ice on the next SCOTUS nomination process-- thus going back on his own words in 2016. He's terrified of a Democratic clean sweep in November.

You're watching too much YouTube and not enough facts. Anyone can make a "news" program on YouTube, including people who are entirely ignorant. Some of them do.

No, Democrats are not threatening CIVIL WAR.

It just boils down to whether pro-Trump Republicans can muster 51 votes in the Senate.

It's ALL about Roe v Wade.

However, Supreme Court Justices are charged with being non-partisan, and to make rulings based on a combination of precedence and an interpretation of the Constitution.

There's also at least some recognition of the prevailing opinion of the people of this nation.

So, there's no guarantee that a Trump nominee would violate the non-partisan nature of of the Supreme Court, and simply vote along strictly anti-abortionist lines.

The overwhelming national opinion supports abortion-on-demand throughout at least the FIRST TRIMESTER.

They have that right, according to the Constitution. Too bad it will literally be "over the dead body" of Justice Ginsburg.

Donald Trump was greeted with boos and anti-Trump chants by the crowd of mourners when he appeared to pay his "respects" to Justice Ginsburg.

Given her status as a Supreme Court Justice, he couldn't very well have skipped it without even more criticism from all sides.

The fact that he welcomed her death, and is against everything she stood for, made it about as hypocritical and grotesque as it gets.

That far off humming-sound at the farthest reaches of hearing, when they vote to confirm the next Trump-pet for the Court, will be the sound of RBG, spinning in her grave.
