Lol..

This is going to be hysterical to watch liberals triggered across the country...

Should’ve run ANYONE but Hillary...too bad the DNC rigged the primary election for her because Bernie had a better chance against Trump than Hillary...

Man oh man, the 2016 election is the gft that keeps giving...

-Chris


I've been saying this since the campaign.

Beating Trump should have been easy. But they ran her.

You just can't run someone who is as divisive as she was and expect to win.

I bet Ginsberg is next. She's half out the door already. Falling asleep in public....

How about Citizens United to start?

That was by far the most influential case of the decade.

thehill.com... older article but the bulk of the elderly justices all have had some kind of health issue in the last 10 years or in Clarence Thomas case grew up with very poor health care


While the president’s physical exams are made public, no such information is released on the justices. The court does, however, announce when its judges encounter emergency health issues. This was the case in 2007, when Chief Justice John Roberts suffered a seizure near his summer home in Maine. He was taken to the hospital, observed overnight and released with a clean bill of health. The chief justice had experienced a similar episode in 1993 while playing golf. The pattern suggests that Roberts might have epilepsy, some experts say. It is not clear whether he takes any medication to prevent seizures. Ginsburg has also made headlines for several different health episodes. She was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1999 and subsequently underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Ten years later, she was found to have pancreatic cancer — among the most life-threatening forms of the disease — prompting a surgery to remove a small tumor and additional chemotherapy. Several other hospitalizations followed in 2009. Cancer is prevalent in Ginsburg’s family. Her mother battled a deadly case of cervical cancer and succumbed the day before Ginsburg’s high school graduation. Complications from the disease also claimed Ginsburg’s husband, Martin, in 2010. Not all of the justices have such wrenching stories. Justice Anthony Kennedy, 75, has a coronary stent that has landed him in the hospital for routine procedures. Justice Clarence Thomas, 64, was reportedly rejected from serving in the military because of curvature in his spine. Kagan has been described by The New York Times as a “reformed teenage smoker” who admits to enjoying “the occasional cigar,” though she fought the tobacco industry as part of the Clinton Justice Department.


www.reuters.com... not as serious as some of the other ailments but still pretty bad


U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a life-long diabetic, was treated by paramedics for low blood sugar at her home in Washington on Friday morning but was able to go to work afterward, a court spokeswoman said. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor participates in taking a

Sit back and watch the over the top gloom and doom hysteria and predictions of death and mayhem that never materializes, like what happened with the tax bill.

You mean the tax bill that has now sent our deficit through the roof, resulted in inflation, decreased purchasing power for most Americans, and is now being cited as the cause for decreased revenues as a reason to cut medicare, medicaid, and snap?

The CBO's deficit projections were wrong. They projected economic growth averaging 1.8% of GDP for the next 10 years. We're well above that. Additional growth creates additional revenue, not decreased revenue. All the "OMG the deficit!" panic was based on the CBO's absurd projection that growth would only be 1.8%. Just because it averaged that during Obama's term doesn't mean it will during Trump's. I don't think we've ever had a 10-year period with growth that low.

I could address the problems with the rest of your post but I've already gotten one post removed today and I don't want to cause thread drift.

Hopefully Trump picks Ted Cruz.




Oh dear God in heaven no! Cruz is such slimey piece of %#*!.

Trey gowdy maybe, but Trump has his list. I just hope they are 52yrs old or younger and a constitutionalist.

I heard this today and have been reading the posts:

There are several things to consider very carefully:

Before you start celebrating the first thing to consider is that there is going to be a massive fight in the congress over when to start this process, and the precedent has been set already, so it is already political.

Before wanting a justice of any caliber, or view, might I suggest it be prudent to go through and read through many of the prior court cases. What may seem like a justice one wants, may have results that we all will not want and will regret.

Even now, there are those that are hoping and wanting a justice who will over turn some of the prior decisions, such as the Roe V. Wade or even the gay marriage. The nightmare and problems from overturning such will have strong implications that very well could cause problems for all in the country. Often times many of those decisions cover more than just what is on the surface.

Here's the long term consequences of this, and likely one more Trump pick. Democrats eventually regain power and add a few justices to rebalance the court in their image. Then change the laws to prevent that from being used again.

All we want is a judge that protects the Constitution. It should be the easiest gig in the world! "Is this Constitutional? Check yes or no."

I agree with term limits on the House and Senate but not the SCOTUS. Too much interpretation and not enforcement of laws occurs in the lower courts already.

Just an opinion...


Glad to see Trump will get to appoint another and Ginsberg is close also.


I wouldn't mind seeing a mechanism for the States to make a vote of no confidence on SCOTUS justices, or something the People could enact akin to the Electoral College such that the justice would step down if there decisions cause people to lose faith in their rulings/objectivity.

Average over 10 years... It hasnt even been a year yet for the tax plan. It may be higher or lower at any given moment but on over 10 years they expect it will equal ~1.8%.

Btw Obama briefly hit a high of over 5% one year but that doesnt mean it was all over 5% for 8 years.

Sounds like you need a safe space?
I’d suggest moving to Canada or Venezuela(Bernie said it was the last place on earth to achieve the American dream)

Sounds like yall have become the monster that you hated a few years ago.

Once in power the corruption sets in absolutely.
Now yall are overjoyed to push everyone around and be the big boss that makes the rules.

This is basically Bush or Obama all over again.
Good work ruining something that could have turned out half-way decently guys.

It was your mindless cult-like mentality and control-freak attitudes that did it.


I don't even know why I'm wasting my time replying to you, but look you really need to look in the mirror when you say something like this. For 8 years we had Obama telling us we are no good, cops are bad, Americans didn't build their own businesses, letting people burn down cities, apologizing for being American . . . I could go on.

It's OUR TURN NOW BUDDY! You had your 8 years of your version of "great", now we're returning the favor with 50+ years of SCOTUS RULE! Now bend the knee!
