"Get ready boys and girls. This is the story. It is about to get butt ugly on the High Court. Why? We (collectively) have allowed the High Court to become more than it was intended to be. So whomever the next appointment will be, it will become a war."
In the movie Armageddon, when the asteroid started getting close to Earth, there was first a very destructive meteor storm. A whole lot of skyscrapers were damaged, and people killed. Once it was over, a NASA expert explained that this was not the asteroid - it was just a meteor storm. A meteor storm? Look at all this mayhem and damage it caused! Things could not be much worse!
Get the picture? What we just witnessed in Washington, in getting Brett Kavanaugh confirmed, was only a meteor shower. It was nothing. It was a Constitutional conservative replacing a "swing vote". But - the person just confirmed was not a swing vote, and that is bothersome. Worth fighting for. A hill worth dying on. Worth lying about. Worth making up stories about. But in the end, it was not enough. Even though the "meteors" caused a whole lot of damage, Judge Kavanaugh is now Justice Kavanaugh.
But the asteroid might still be coming, and sooner than we thought. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court Justice who hates our Constitution (and has said that overseas), might be soon hanging it up - voluntarily or involuntarily. When that day comes, and if Trump is still President, and if the Red Team still controls Congress, buckle up folks. What you witnessed with Brett Kavanaugh recently is NOTHING - compared to filling "Buzzy's" seat.
Ginsburg has been the most dependable of all the Lefties on SCOTUS. It is in her blood. Even though she "promised" should would not be biased - she is. So, to replace her with a person like Judge Amy Coney Barrett, would end up being a battle royal. It would be the asteroid. To lose a very dependable socialist vote, and replace it with a Constitutional scholar, would be way beyond the pale. But Judge Barrett deserves to be on the High Court. Maybe as much as Kavanaugh. We need to get rid of these "law makers" on the High Court, and replace them with Constitutional interpreters.
Get ready boys and girls. This is the story. It is about to get butt ugly on the High Court. Why? We (collectively) have allowed the High Court to become more than it was intended to be. So whomever the next appointment will be, it will become a war. It result in either a meteor shower with damage, or the "big one" - the asteroid. What would the court look like now if Hillary had won? Please don't ask.
