U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RGB) had a turbulent and notorious career on the Supreme Court. She died after prolonged bouts with cancer and assorted associated ailments. She is reported to have died on Friday, the 19th of September 2020.

She spent over 27 years of her life on the Supreme Court. She was influential in many hotly contested decisions that overturned long precedent or created new rights for special interest groups never mentioned in the Constitution. She was a fierce opponent of any sort of significant meaning in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

It is widely believed she did not retire during the Obama regime because she thought Hillary Clinton was certain to win the 2016 elections. She was such a partisan advocate, she wished to have her replacement appointed by a woman. She lost that bet.<

It appears she will have a replacement appointed by President Trump.

President Trump has kept his word about appointing judges who are originalists and textualists. He has appointed judges who believe the words of the Constitution mean things, and those meanings may not be changed, unless through the process of Constitutional amendments.

Most judges on the court since the reign of Franklin Roosevelt have been philosophical progressives. They have promoted the idea of the Constitution as a “living document”, which means the Constitution can be changed by justices on the Supreme Court as they feel it should be changed.

That philosophy means the Constitution had no fixed meaning, but changes with the change of justices and their ideas, on the court. It is an attractive option for Supreme Court justices. It gives them immense power, privilege, and status.

Promoting one's own power and privilege to the uproarious applause of one's peers and the media is the easiest thing

Ruth Bader Ginsburg made it to the peak of power and privilege, in large part because she was born female in the United States.

She did what was popular in the Media and among her peers.

Disgusting that she’s praised as a heroine by the left and too many republicans. If anyone can say what good she did for the USA, please enlighten me.

It is hard to say she did no good. It is hard to live an entire life of privilege and power, and do no good.

On balance, I think she did much evil.

I am not the one to make the final judgement. I hope she had a "come to Jesus" moment at the last.

My tribute for Ruth:

Ozymandias

I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
and wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
tell that its sculptor well those passions read
which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
the hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear --
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
the lone and level sands stretch far away.'

“Notorious”

That is the lamest, most cringe, and try-hard meme of all time ... except for the Biden campaign, such as it is. But nobody can accuse the Biden campaign of trying too hard.

I remember reading the history of the impeachment process in the late '90s and seeing that there have been a few Supreme Court Justices that just wouldn't retire. They were usually not impeached, however. It reminds me of the Star Wars Emperor from the movie shrieking "Unlimited power!"

She was singlehandedly responsible for more social polarization and conflict than any other person during her lifetime, will burn in Hell for eternity, and be known as a disgrace to posterity.
