The 85-year-old SCOTUS Justice RBG* is in the hospital with 3 broken ribs. Will the don hope for her retirement so he pickin' another KAV?


*RBG is Ruth Bader Ginsburg which y'all probably know but I didn't want to assume so I thought I'd asterisk it.


Then the larding of SCOTUS will fall always 6-3. The don's partisan lapdogs and the non-don's! Boy izzy he lucky or what? Beginner's luck? The luck of the draw? It ain't the luck of the Irish because he ain't Irish izzy? Scotch on his mum's side and German on his dad's. No Irish anywhere atall atall atall? Let him pray each day for the withdrawal from SCOTUS of the notorious RBG. The only thing he will ever pray for probably.

    I'm pretty sure that he is hoping she retires so he can pick another Kav. But what I'm wondering is now that the Dems control the house can they block Trumps pick. Cheers!

    Hello Noanoose...
    No they cant, Advise and consent belongs to the senate, not the house. The republicans actually picked a few senate seats

      (advice)

      In this particular context, it's the noun, not the verb that you should use.

    Isn't the lack of knowledge of basic civics among people on here remarkable?

    Stu, I know this doesn't make you feel better, so why keep it up?   It's really not positive.  No. No.

    It's a lot more positive than the ignorance of thinking that the House of Representatives has any influence over the confirmation of presidential appointees. Has American elementary education really become that dumbed down?

    Hello there Stu Bee...
    Yes it is. What I find rather curious is how those who show the most passion in their opinions of politics and government haven't a vlue as to how the system works, it is not rocket science. The U.S. Constitution is only 4 pages in parchment, maybe 30 some standard printed pages and the D.O.I is a page. It would seem that if one held a desire to debate the subjects, a little time spent reading our "founding" documents would be beneficial. 
    More curious still is most of these people fancy themselves as educated and correct and exhibit the fury of a baby banging its spoon on their highchair ( I realize in the above answer, this is not the case as Nanoose asked an honest question about the house's authority) but still, this is basic stuff.

    Indeed. If memory serves, I think I learned about the Senate's role in confirmations in fifth or sixth grade, certainly by the time I was in junior high.

    Hello again Stu bee...
    Further, you don't seem to have the desire to ignore what "is" to reconcile what you wish it were.

    So you too have noticed all the extrapolating from wishful thinking to reality by certain folks on here? Actually, they're not alone, it happens all over.

    Oh Yes, and frustratingly so. Sadly many of those certain folks have decided to substitute intellect with "feelings" and often those feelings manifest themselves through some inane Meme or a personal attack.

    Trump can be very busy still until January when the Dems take over.  Cheers.

    The House holds the pursestrings/budget and also theoretically is supposed to perform oversight. The Senate does the Advise and Consent. Remember how they confirmed that abomination  Brett Kavanaugh? With the Senate in his pocket he will have his way appointing standard partisan crap as he just did in appointing Matthew Whitaker to replace Jeff Sessions. Whitaker is "acting" AG temporarily. Eventually a permanent AG will be appointed which will require the Advise and Consent of the Senate. Thank you for your reply and Happy Friday Nanoose.

    And the hits just keep on coming, Rosie.  

    This is not to be believed and yet, here we go again.  She is ancient, but she is a tough bird.  I'd pit her against Trump's broken ribs any day.

    I won't count her out just yet.  She can hold on for at least two months, can't she?

    Unfortunately, with the Republicans controlling the Senate, she will need to hold on for at least two more years, and possibly longer.

    You know what else? RBG, then known as Ruth Bader, was my mom's sorority sister in Alpha Epsilon Phi, a year behind her in the early 1950s at Cornell. Her future husband, Marty Ginsburg, was in my mom's class. Mom says that all she remembers is that Ruth was always at the library studying.

    I sincerely hope so Sharon. She is feisty tough determined and if she can possibly hang on and return she will. She has had health issues before and I bet she'll try to hang on until the 2020 election when (please God) a Democrat is elected prez. You know the  appointing of Whitaker is probably unconstitutional. He has written many articles about the investigations calling it a WITCH HUNT. He says he will never recuse himself. There are laws about that so we shall see what happens but if he is allowed to continue in that job he will be doing so ILLEGALLY and UNCONSTITUTIONALLY. Of course the don has done that since day 1 so we can't hold our breath for sure. But yesterday there were protest marches in every state about this egregious action on don's part. The people are ANGRY.Fingers crossed the anger grows larger and broader and wider and deeper and the don backs down. OR ELSE who knows what the ANGRY MAJORITY will do next? Thank you for your reply and Happy Friday! :)

    Gee, I am sorry to hear about the Justice's injuries. Did she fall off her high horse?

    LOL. Funny thing is, she does work out with a personal trainer several times a week.
