Of course, as most folks are... Who honestly buys into the crap slung from the political isles?? Its all lies and nonsense to stir the pot/base/votes. Politicians are scum, no big secret!

I was disappointed in her decision to discuss Trump, I think our justices should always be above political partisanship.
Nicely stated, I felt the same way about Scalia. I disagreed with his rulings but felt he was an honorable man. Strange how he got along so will with Kagan and others outside the court room. They are all very protective of the court and I would not want to see it digress to the absolute mess we have in congress today,

I think Ginsburg likes stardom a bit too much. It's improper for a Supreme Court justice to be doing so many interviews and stating her opinion publically on every issue under the sun. She, and all the others, should remain above politics and pop culture, reserving their opinions for their written opinions.

It's hard to be decent with folks who are not decent with yu. Like when Trump said for years that Obama was born in Kenya.

But the fact that not all politicians play nice with each other does not dispute my post that some politicians do, in fact, play nice with each other

RBG is one of the last remaining honorable liberals. Unfortunately, she's a dying breed. Today's left-wing extremists could learn a lot from her, but they won't.

While I don't agree with her on many things, she is definitely honorable and a trooper. If the Liberals would have stayed as centered as her, it wouldn't have pushed many of us on the other side further right.

RBG and Justice Scalia had tremendous respect for each other and were close personal friends.

Politicians and the media that feeds off them are intent on division. Sadly, too many ordinary people buy into the crap.

I do not understand people who idolize or demonize politicians.

I donít understand people who attribute or blame a POTUS or party for the good, bad and ugly in their own lifeís.

I donít understand people whose self esteem seems dependent on who sits the oval or controls the majority.

"insburg defends Kavanaugh, Gorsuch as 'very decent, very smart individuals'"
This is really going to hurt a LOT of dems.


Even a broken clock is right twice a day!
