    Ban doctors. Doctors are responsible for more unnatural deaths than guns, cars and other means combined. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2016/05/03/476636183/death-certificates-undercount-toll-of-medical-errors

    That whole 9th Circuit is liberally fuxated, so one judge gone will make a very minor dent.

    Repeating myself from somewhere else:

    The good, they die young don’t they?

    Reinhardt’s passing leaves a progressive vacancy on the court for Trump to potentially fill with a conservative vote.

    And so it REALLY is Good Friday.

    Somebody give FDR in Hell a heads-up to put this one with all the others.

    Hmmmm, Now if I remember correctly, the president picks / appoints federal judges.
    Can you imagine the the unholy screeching yowl of the socialist populace out there when Trump appoints a strict constitutional judge!

    • Andrew says:

      Yes, the President appoints judges, but only after they are approved by Congress. Which, right now, is slowing any appointment that Trump wants to make.

      One of the reasons there are still so many Okobungo appointees still in government.

    #8th ranked judge on the curcuit.

    He was one of 5 appointed by Jimmy Carter still on the bench. There are 2 nixon appointies, 3 reagon, 2 bush SR, 14 clintonites, 7 from JR and 7 from obama.

    So its a start but we need at least 19 more to have strokes or retire before it will make much of a difference. Though searching the biographies of the other 39, there are a lot of ones who over 80.

    This is only a win if Trump sends someone in who gives the Left shit-fits.
    Let’s hope he doesn’t disappoint anyone.

    No doubt he’ll be swimming around the lake of fire for a really long time. Maybe he can use Janet Butch Reno for a flotation device

    And in other news, the wart they removed from his ass is doing just fine.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
