Of course; I agree. But “leaning a certain way” as I said isn’t quite the same thing as bias.

I'm not one of those believers in conspiracy theories, but do we know for certain that she is really still alive and they're not doing a "Bernie Lomax" with her!

Nobody lives. The trick is keeping the body warm for a couple of years.

Whatever she is, the DEMs will use her to suit their agenda.

She sure does. She was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a decade ago.

The reason she can beat cancer is undoubtedly early detection. Being a SCOTUS justice, RBG probably has the best health care available and regular monitoring and testing for any type of cancer, which is far more care than most normal people could ever afford. So cancer is father along in most normal people by the time they see a doctor.

Not sure I agree. I doubt her health coverage is any better than mine, though it may be cheaper.

I have amazing HI with no cap, no referral requirement. I could go to any doctor I wanted any time and as much as possible. Not saying Justices (or Congress, etc.) don't have great coverage, but so do many private citizens.

I had an appendectomy and post op a freakin nurse made 2 house calls just to check on my (easy and successful) recovery. I paid 2k out of pocket for a total 90k bill.
