RIP Notorious RBG


2020 is a year of shocks but the death of legendary Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has managed to make the awful worse.

Attempting to sum up the legacy of a titan like Ginsburg is beyond me.

The crater her passing has left in the collective conscience of all good people requires its own voices, its own moment of grief and its own time to celebrate and champion.

Horrifically we will barely have time for that.

The abhorrence that the death of one of the most important Womens Rights and Human Rights advocates opens a real time political dynamic that is an affront to everything her legacy stands for, demands the immediate attention of the American electorate.

That Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death today would suddenly provide Trump with another Supreme Court Justice pick 6 weeks before the election and give him the perfect tool to electrify the religious anti abortion right is Handmaiden-esk.

Republicans have wasted no time in responding…

McConnell vows Trump’s nominee to replace Ginsburg will get Senate vote, setting up historic fight

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vowed on Friday that whomever President Donald Trump nominates to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will get a vote on the Senate floor, signaling a historic fight in Congress over one of the most polarizing issues in American politics.

Fox News is already salivating over Trumps ability to replace RBG to overturn Roe Vs Wade – the obscenity to her legacy that would represent is soul destroying.

In any normal situation, to even consider the political ramifications would be distasteful but the values Ginsburg stood for, Trump would denigrate with glee.

I fear America can not survive the torture of watching Trump appoint an Anti-Abortion religious fanatic to the Supreme Court. The United States will rip itself to pieces if Trump forces this through and I fear that’s exactly what he wants.

All good people will grieve the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and fear how it will be manipulated by an increasingly desperate Trump.

  1. The democrats brought this on themselves with the pedantic and childish games they played with the impeachment. Don’t worry if they win a majority in the house and senate this time then they’ll just increase the number of Supreme court judges.

  2. RBG should have resigned while Obama was president and she had been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But her ego got in the way since she wanted to wait for the Hillary Clinton epic victory and resign under a female president. When the “chosen one” didn’t win, it all turned to custard.

  3. More often than not the blindingly obvious is staring us in the face and yet it’s invisible to us.
    What do we have? Money.
    How do we get much, much more than we’ll ever need of it? We swindle it.
    How do we get away with that? That, is a good question if I do say so myself.
    Money, money, money… It’s all about the money. Millionaires yearn to be billionaires and billionaires are racing each other to their first trillion as I type.
    What does that tell us?
    It tells me that we suckers who are the majority must be working long hours to build those minority millionaires, billionaires and soon to be trillionaires.
    What does that tell us?
    In my opinion they’ve used logical fallacies delivered into our unsuspecting minds to convince us to acquiesce to their greed, and a dangerous greed it is too. Ask any recently extinct species?
    Again, what does that tell us?
    One would think that by NOT acquiescing to their unnatural, rapacious and demonic greed we might be able to regain steerage of our biosphere.
    If the world is all about money, and it’s clear to me that it is, then all [we] have to do is stop working thus earning thus building castles for tyrants within which they live to lord it over us and lets not forget the fabulous words; manipulate and exploit. Think banks with penthouses ?
    All we have to do is stop working. STOP. All we have to do is show that we can and that we will…stop.
    What would trump be if he didn’t have billions? An old orange pervert in a lower middle class suburb with no power other than being able to shout at his neighbours?
    Today? He’s a powerful drip of puss in a terrible fascist pimple that’s becoming darker and more ominous by the day.
    The very riche have only one fear. And that is of a united work force who will, without fucking around, stop working. No more $6 billion AO/NZ dollars in net profits going into foreign owned banks. No more being rorted by privateers for infrastructure built from our taxes spanning decades. No more billionaires, no more lobbyists in OUR parliament, no more of that.
    In AO/NZ we have a dangerously laissez faire approach to voting, we had a labour hatched batch of traitors destroy our unions and we have a Blue fascist political party that has our fragile agrarian primary industry by the balls and that’s still not enough of a clue to allow even the most agile thinker here to go ” Hang on a minute!? ”
    But we don’t. We’re fucked. They’ve fucked us. roger douglas, a caged pig exploiter, and his minions have fucked us.
    I talk to people, I look around, my life experience spans generations from the 1950’s to now, I know what AO/NZ was like, and I compare it to now? All I see is decline and despair… and a few multimillionaires and one or two billionaires.
    And if some of you think we’re well out of it, well away from the monster that is America? Think peter theil, the most obvious example I can think of. He’s well up trump, boots and all. peter theil? Walked right through our immigration office, stayed here for a couple of weeks then went back to ‘merica an AO/NZ citizen.
    Warning! Some might find the image here repugnant.
    So clearly it’s all about money. Then let’s stop giving ours to them? That’s how we un fuck things. We starve them out and perhaps the best thing about that tactic is that all we have to do is nothing.

  4. “Notorious” = Famous or well known, typically for some bad quality or deed.-O.E.D.

    What is it about RGB that you view unfavourably?

    • Comrade – thank you for allowing me the opportunity to clarify.

      The phrase ‘Notorious RGB’ is a delightful nickname that fans gave her as a reference to Notorious B.I.G the rapper. That’s why the crown image of her is wonderful as it’s a direct play of the famous Notorious B.I.G image.

      It’s a very well known nickname for her and is used out of deep affection and respect.
