WNU Editor: I have taken care of enough senior family members in my life to know that when you fall at this age, you are entering a stage in your life when the stuff that you use to do can no longer be done. If she can no longer function as a Supreme Court Justice, this will be the next big political battle in Washington, and it will eat up the political oxygen in Washington for months. I wish her a safe and speedy recovery.

On a side note. In the second year of President Obama's second term I speculated that this would be the best time for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to retire, and for President Obama to appoint a Justice in line of his and her views of the Supreme Court. Her health problems were well known then, just as they are today. Why she made the decision to not retire is one question that I hope she will answer one day. Simple answer .... I think she thought Hillary Clinton was going to win.

They nearly took trump down because he enjoys eating cheeseburgers...... the left set a precedent with the unfit for duty thing. God I pray Trump gets another Supreme Court pick to rub in the faces of those demoncratic hypocrites

The reason an 85 year old justice is still on the court is the expansion of staff. She can hire legal eagles right out of law school to do all the research she no longer can do. She can tell them the opinion she wants researched and then have them write it.

So if you want supremes to retire sooner, Congress can cut their staff down to size.

" She can tell them the opinion she wants researched and then have them write it."

So she hires bootlickers and yes men to agree with her.


Without doing the work herself can she ever questoin her own judgment or logic?
