Ruth Bader Ginsburg 1933 - 2020
I'll try not to lose my temper this time. BV, please delete the 2 most political posts. I didn't open this thread to provide career trolls an opportunity to slip in their personal political crap. The vast majority of posts did exactly what they should have: Express their grief and loss and pay their respects to an American legend.
The post stating the author's personal opinion about legislating from the bench may look innocuous enough to BV, because he's not as tuned in to the more lurid details of political dog whistles in the USA (and much happier for it, I'm sure). Justice Ginsberg never legislated from the bench. Not once in all her years on the court. She made well thought out rulings based upon existing statutes and case law. Saying she (or any Supreme Court Justice) rules from their political agenda is a career troll insult. It implies they've done something dishonest and disreputable. That is insulting and disrespectful, especially so soon after somebody passes away.
The other and more recent post about correcting "misguided" policies is such a flagrant political troll, it should not need explanation. Both sides accuse the other of being "misguided" every day.
To the rest of the people who posted in this thread deserve a thank you for keeping their political beliefs out of it. Some people just needed a fair chance to express their grief at the loss and their gratitude for RBG's accomplishments.
