A Supreme Court Justice disappeared from public view and everyone is asking one question

In recent weeks, one Supreme Court Justice’s health dominated the national conversation.

Their retirement could lead to the biggest political fight in American history.

And now that Justice disappeared from public view and every American is asking one big question.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to recover from doctors removing cancerous tumors from her lungs.

Ginsburg skipped two weeks worth of oral arguments in order to rest and rehabilitate.

Now she canceled an appearance in Los Angeles at the Skirball Cultural Center to celebrate an exhibit dedicated to her life.

Some Americans are wondering if Ginsburg’s health complications could lead to Congress passing a mandatory retirement age for Supreme Court Justices.

Under the 1991, Gregory v. Ashcroft case, such a restriction would pass constitutional muster.

Others argued that the framers set all sorts of age restrictions setting minimum ages for people to run for office and if they wanted elected officials or judges to retire at a certain age they would have included such language in the Constitution.

Either way, if Ginsburg retires while Donald Trump is still President and the Republicans control the Senate, the ensuing liberal freak out will be like nothing seen before in American politics.

    the real question, before you ask the question, is at what age are you looking at for automatic retirement . Regan was 88 when he finished, great people have been old and wise before they retired, so at what age are you talking. give me an age that i can work with. what 65. 75, 85. WHAT

  2. Angela says:

    Yes term limits for terminal illnesses and extreme age!

    When You are as old as She is and too sick to get to work;then, it is time She should be forced into retirement. She should spend time with family and leave America to others.

    well stated! the court security forces really need too go dig her out. do you know now many people are preying for her demise? and that includes the pope!? the only person that wants too turn her into a zombie is the zombie queen herself’; pink-hatt-pul-pussieface! kount drek? were r u wen we Ned u! i believe in the constitution/deceleration of independence/bill of rights; yet the fathers did not figure that a woman wood live beyond her tyme?!

  7. Craig Murphy says:

    That’s not the question people are asking. What they are asking is how long she has been cryogenically preserved.

  8. Dan says:

    Could not agree with you any more. Well statef

  9. MIKE says:

    There should be term limits on congress too. MAGA, OR ELSE!!!

  10. Mike W says:

    The poll asked about mandatory retirement ages for the SCOTUS. There should be mandatory retirement ages for ALL politicians too.

    I don’t agree with RBG much, but she did vote against Obama about a hundred times at least in cases he had before the court (so did the rest of the justices). I consider falling asleep during the presentation of arguments a good reason she should retire, but as far as being out of court in a post-operative condition – from that she’ll heal, and I feel sorry for her. Serious injury, never mind an operation to the thorax awakens you brutally to the realization that those muscles are involved in nearly every move you make and hurt like hell. Especially because those injuries cause you to cough. Sure, the rest of us would keep going anyway, but most of us haven’t been around for nearly a century.

    My question, is she still alive. I wouldn’t put it past the left to make her incommicado and have someone, one of her aids, answer her communications and pretend she’s still alive or maybe she’s in a coma. I would want proof that she is still alive and ALERT (well as alert as someone that has been falling asleep during conversations can be)


  14. Jean Hetzel says:

    Definitely need term limits.for all gov. Positions. As it was said after eight years they either become ineffective or corrupted.as is most of Congress.

  15. Craig Murphy says:

    Under the Massachusetts Constitution, all court judges ( but not administrative ) are required to retire at age 70 although they may apply for recall. I think 70 is a little early, but yes, some sort of limitation should be constitutionally required.

    She and the libs are in a state of panic. They do not want a third appointee by the president. Such a disaster for them. Its hard to imagine she will be able to serve another two years. If the president does get to make another appointment it is rather obvious it will be a lady this time. Fasten your seat belt everyone!!

  17. Richard says:

    As common citizens must be retested for competence and cognitive skills for driver’s licences and other things Supreme Court appointees should be tested after a certain age to see if they are still mentally able to perform their duties. We shouldn’t be putting the fate Constitution and the rule of law on the whims of drooling, gibbering ideologues just to satisfy one or the other party’s agenda. That is not what our founders envisioned when the created the three branches of Government. Mandatory retirement is mandated for the US President whom some people call the most person in the world, the head of one of the three branches of Government the Executive Branch so the competency and mental, physical stability of a member of the Judicial Branch members should be monitored as the Judicial Branch many times rules on matters that have a final bearing on all matters concerning our country for generations. There is not much we can do about the competence or mental stability of the members of the Legislative Branch as long we let idiots elect idiots but the Supreme Court can keep a check on overreach by both other Branches.

    Since no one has see her we should demand proof of life!
