Everyone take a deep breath

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dead at 87

“The line, it is drawn, the curse, it is cast
The slow one now will later be fast
As the present now will later be past
The order is rapidly fading
And the first one now will later be last
For the times, they are a-changin'”

    She’ll still be voting,like every other dead democrat.

    Hard to imagine the left going anymore apesh*t than they have already,but they will find a way.

    She died on Rosh HaShanah, a day when according to Jewish tradition, three books of account are opened; in them, the fate of the wicked, the righteous, and those who are intermediate are recorded. The names of the righteous are inscribed in the book of life; those in the intermediate group have until Yom Kippur to repent and become righteous; the wicked are blotted out of the book of life forever. As a Christian with no special access to God’s counsels, I am in no position to speculate, let alone know, how the Supreme Judge will decide RBG’s case, though I expect her devout Catholic friend Antonin Scalia is even now making a plea for clemency (which we will all some day need).

    Meanwhile, a hearty L’Shanah Tovah to all of Gerard’s Jewish readers.

    Burn in Hell for Eternity you Commie C¥NT!

    May you be gang-raped forever by Mao, Stalin, Hitler and Mohamed!

    Better learn to enjoy it.

    Fuel needs a new filter. The spew coming out of the hot filter spigot is a tad filthy, whilst the cold faucet gushes sweetness.

    De mortuis nil nisi bonum.

    That said, you think 2020 has been nuts so far? Buh buh buh Baby! You ain’t seen nothing yet!

    I join the estimable PA Cat’s best Rosh Hashanah wishes to those of the Hebraic faith. The Almighty just now bestowed a great good upon a friend, who will be limping out of the charnel house minus only a toe (albeit the big one), instead of the predicted lower leg, so this anglican is more than glad to offer thanks to whichever sectarian flavour of deity effected that small miracle.

    Let her absence provide us with the ability–ABILITY–to choose someone moral and wise to fill this position!

  • Cynyr September 18, 2020, 7:07 PM

    I don’t want to celebrate her death, I just don’t think that’s cool. She should have already retired, long ago. The timing ensures that our enemies will be more motivated… to the degree of rank insanity.

    We should be confident, in the face of the coming storm. All things work together.

    The world of the in-house Democrat / Communist appears to be getting rough as a dry corn cob. One gone, 150 million to go, in just the USA. When a dent is made in the 150 million, wake me up.

    Except that it will involve more human suffering and economic loss, I’d welcome the upcoming rage riots. Trump will quickly shine a light on one of the excellent names already publicized, and the Harris SS will go nuclear. Digital attendance will be mandatory for all. The left will make it crystal clear that the screaming, burning, stabbing, shooting, looting, extortion, theft, and murder will continue until they get everything they want; and until we stop everything they don’t like.

    America is sick and tired of these games, and the Democratic party may be about to learn that the hard way. Russia Russia Russia was a pathetic minstrel show. The attempted lynching of Kavanaugh infuriated every fair-minded person. Impeachment went nowhere, at huge expense. The Covid Panic and Shutdown Boogaloo has nearly inspired the populace to a second revolution. It’s hard to believe the Dims would actually try another temper tantrum over The Notorious RBG’s seat. But if they want to absolutely guarantee The Awesome DJT another four years . . .

    Yes, …as you judge so will you be judged and the measure in which you measure, will be measured out to you… I’m no saint but I hope Ruth was wearing asbestos soled shoes when she passed.

  • John Venlet September 19, 2020, 6:01 AM

    Seen round the net. The most succinct, and rather apropos, epitaph on Ginsburg:

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg was just a clump of cells.

  • Jeff Brokaw September 19, 2020, 6:08 AM

    It would be easier to salute her life well-lived if she had not so obviously stayed on the court — despite severe health challenges, for several years — specifically to outlast Trump and enable a Democrat administration to install another committed leftist.

    What I took away from all that is: we need an age limit of 80 or less on that court. Nobody needs any 87 year olds, living in the past and uninvested in the future, with one foot in the grave, making vital decisions that affect all of us.

  • Gordon Scott September 19, 2020, 6:42 AM

    Agree with Jeff. 80 is enough.

  • Fuel Filter September 19, 2020, 7:00 AM

    Open post to my two critics…

    So I’m supposed to show magnanimous writing to a person who single-handedly was responsible for the murder of hundreds of thousands of innocent, helpless children in the womb?

    I’m supposed to “watch my language” as you imply to this sort of person who, in more sane times, would have been tried, convicted, and put to death for her Crimes Against Humanity?

    If there were a Nuremberg-type of tribunal for this person and their ilk are you two telling me they would not be dangling at the end of a hemp rope?

    And I’m supposed to be civil?

    Nope. Not gonna happen.

  • Nori September 19, 2020, 7:16 AM

    Wonder if St Peter,at those Pearly Gates,will be asking her:
    So,Madame Ginsberg,do black babies’ lives matter?

  • ghostsniper September 19, 2020, 7:42 AM

    Fuel – grow a ducks ass. You know, like water off a ducks ass. It’s just words.
    Though about 20 years too late, I’m glad the wretch is gone.
    As far as the future turmoil brought by the whiney children?
    Look who they are damaging – the very environment that created them.
    I shall not complain too loudly, they deserve it.
    If they some how make it out here to the hinters the breaking of the sound barrier by small pieces of metal will mask their wails.

  • TN Tuxedo September 19, 2020, 8:23 AM

    So far, I’ve seen nothing about when they plan to hold her official funeral.

    I’m predicting that it will be held September 29, thus preempting the presidential debate.

  • Vanderleun September 19, 2020, 9:05 AM

    Now there’s a thought.

  • Casey Klahn September 19, 2020, 10:57 AM

    Her last words were arrogant. That’s a keeper. She cared more for her agenda and her political creed than for the nation and for the SCOTUS. That’s about all you need to know about democraps.

  • Montefrío September 19, 2020, 12:24 PM

    @Mr Sniper

    Your braggadocio has become boring. What’s your body count thus far (post Viet Nam)? I suspect, as we say in Spanish: mucho ruido, pocas nueces. You’re wise to stay at home and defend the hearth, but best leave offense to the pros, who’ve long since learned to keep their mouths shut and simply act. Would that I had the courage to do so!

  • ghostsniper September 19, 2020, 6:41 PM

    Montefrío sed: “You’re wise to stay at home and defend the hearth…”
    Thank you. Now stfu.

    When Gerard said ‘take a deep breath’ little Fule Filter thought it was so he could scream like a toddler. So here’s some facts: RBG wasn’t on the court when Roe-v-Wade was decided by a 7-2 decision. The nearest it ever came to being overturned was PlannedParenthood-v-Casey; and RBG wasn’t on the court for that either. Casey upheld Roe with 3 Republican appointees joining the left block by a 5-4 split. The court –notice it’s the whole court– has not taken a hard look at Roe since. But blaming RBG for that is delusional; and childish as crap too.
