Taking bets if she's a show or no-show for the State of the Union, I'm going with no.

Is there going to be one? If she refuses to show will other Democrats?

I am all for Trump doing it somewhere else, nothing says he has to do it there. If anything another feather in his cap if he breaks tradition and does it in say...a battle ground state...it will still be covered by the media etc.

Also that letter he sent to Pelosi...

My prediction of her not being a Justice by Valentine's Day remains on record. 🙋🏻*♂️

I agree with all of these quotes above, however, I ultimately agree with this one below more:

As said above, she is a liberal through and through and knows what is at stake. She won't retire if Trump is in office, no matter how difficult it is for her and you know what? I commend her for that. I despise nearly everything she stands for, but I have to give her credit for her resolve and resolute attitude.

Think about it the other way around. Let's assume someone like Corey Booker or Elizabeth Warren wins the next presidential election. Would you expect any of the Justices who are strong constitutionalists to retire if they were about to, or would you expect them to ride it out as best they could in hopes they could make it until that presidential term was over?

I think we all know the answer.

I see where you are going with this, but there is a huge difference between a politician and supreme court justice.

I don't care if some random political hack has any experience in DC politics. I do care if my surgeon has any medical knowledge. Same goes here.
"I see where you are going with this, but there is a huge difference between a politician and supreme court justice."

I agree with all your responses to these posts except for the above sentence, from the point of view of most Leftists anyway: for them 'politician' and 'Supreme Court Jussis' are EXACTLY the same thing. Fact is that since Woodrow Wilson they have worked to trivialize and dilute the Constitution because it's an impediment to the Progressive agenda. RBG has spoken and written repeatedly of the need to substitute "foreign law" for the Constitution, with it's annoying 1st, 2nd, 4th, 9th and 10th amendments. FDR tried to ruin the Court by stuffing it, and for exactly the same reasons.

Uh, no, I know you think you won that "debate" but that's because you were too dumb to grasp that I was actually having that conversation with other posters, not you. You butted in and I first ignored you, then told you to go read my posts and you came back with a couple and missed the whole jist of it. My first comment was just a throwaway zinger. My last comment was that it couldn't be proved either way, that some "study" didn't prove anything, and that I was basically just expressing my opinion. You couldn't even find those comments because you aren't very bright. They are still there, I suggest you go read them unless you just enjoy displaying your stupidity.

There was a concert in RGB's honor last night in DC. She was said to have been in attendance and sat in the very back. Her son told reporters she is walking a mile a day and seeing her trainer twice a week.

With all the interest in her well being I do find it strange that there's not one single picture of her. Nada.

Her son said she wouldn't be there.

Working out. Walking a mile a day.
Can't make it to the sotu.

Seems legit.

That's great news, she's now well enough to attend an unimportant personal event as that so there's no way she will miss a SOTU address which her job title pretty much makes it mandatory for justices to attend. I look forward to seeing her alongside her eight colleagues.

Where is she? I think the American people deserve to know. Hasn’t been seen. Her being at some concert was apparently fake news. All the reporting was based off one persons account.

Negative.
Many, many Supremes pass on the sotu. Thomas hates them. Scalise never went, iirc. He said it's a waste of time and most judges feel very uncomfortable attending.

But yeah. Not one photo of Ginsberg.
99.3% positive she's gone or on the bad bed. The way the media pounced on her attendance at the musical, without seeing her, sent my antenna up.

There's that pounced word again. Dems like to skip the error in their ways and focus on how the Republicans pounce on it as the story. Forget fuck ups let's divert, not you gonzo just in general.
