Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has just completed three weeks of radiation treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the U.S. Supreme Court disclosed Friday. The radiation therapy, conducted on an outpatient basis, began Aug. 5, shortly after a localized cancerous tumor was discovered on Ginsburg's pancreas. The treatment included the insertion of a stent in Ginsburg's bile duct, according to a statement issued by the court.


Why do I find the part about RBG's "active schedule" unbelievable? The woman can hardly move.

Having just lost a beloved family member to cancer, I can only wish her and her family well, however, she needs to step aside, loathe though she is to do so and allow President Trump another SJC Justice. It would be the right thing, But she is some tough bird.

Compare to these reports on Ginsburg through rose colored glasses to those on the US/Trump economy and impending doom of a recession. Quite striking in the reporting. I think we will have a new SCOTUS nominee before the recession hits.

It's time for her and all of these very old Justices, Judges and politicians to step down. It is an absolute disgrace - Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayer, Leahy, Feinstein, etc. to name a few. We have 300 million people and we have to suffer with these folks forever.

Honor is simply a thing of the past amongst the D.C. elites like Ginsburg. She is 86 years old and selfishly thinking of herself alone, not the good of the Supreme Court or anything else. There is no way she is honestly earning her generous paycheck. She is ill. The press covers for her.

Ruthie, step down now and enjoy your remaining minutes on this side of the ground. Don't let the deep state bully you into staying on...simply for the joy of not letting the President make yet another SCOTUS nomination. I have a sister in law very recently diagnosed with small-cell lung cancer. She was a smoker. She will have a year left to live maybe two if the chemo is somewhat effective. It isn't worth the 9 to 5 grind when you are in this situation.

Radiation for this condition is palliative, not curative. The stent means her bile duct is compressed by a non-operable lesion.

The report about her medical status WAS NOT from her treating physicians, but rather "the court". The language used is describing her situation is not what a physician would use. As previously stated, stents and radiation are for incurable pancreatic cancer. She deserves our prayers.

Two kinds of pancreatic cancer. The slow kind took 7 years to kill a friend of mine, starting when he was about 68. The fast kind, I call "gone this year". I have four friends who have lost wives to this one, all made less than 12 months from the diagnosis. Could be a fight before the election.

If you read my periodic columns in The Hill, you know I am a Joe Biden supporter.

“I want to be clear—I’m not going nuts,” Joe Biden assured a crowd in New Hampshire last Friday. It was merely the latest in a lifetime of lies this serial fabulist has told. ALL of the available evidence proves that he is clearly going nuts.

A Parisian shrug at the dalliances of the rich and powerful marks one as sophisticated. An affair carried out with the insouciance of Ilhan Omar and her lover Tim Mynett demonstrates the shameless embrace of not only the protagonists of their minuet à deux but also the nonchalance forced upon the secondary actors, the spouses, and, even more forgettable, the children. Everyone must play along. Adults have needs, many unmet, and what’s wrong with finding amore where one can? Whose business is it?

It was a Saturday night last March in Buffalo, and Dennis Scott was sitting at home. A stocky veteran with salt-and-pepper hair and a close-cropped beard, Scott had been laid off from Tesla’s factory in Buffalo two months earlier as part of a global reduction in the company’s workforce. Since then, he had taken to sending Elon Musk emails and point-blank tweets, describing the pain the layoffs were causing.

Maher criticized the culture that protects people from judging others, especially when it comes to "fat-shaming." Maher said fat-shaming doesn't need to end, it needs to make a comeback. The comedian said shaming and judging are necessary and the first step in reform. "I know this is a controversial thing to say now in today's America but being fat is a bad thing," Maher said.

When the British went to war exactly 80 years ago they swiftly lost the individual freedom to make fundamental choices over the way they lived. Freedom of travel, freedom to choose work, freedom to remain where they lived, freedom to choose a school for the kids, freedom to buy the clothes they wanted, even the freedom to decide how many books were printed, how many movies were made, and what kind of news could be reported and what could not—all gone. That’s what being on a war footing meant. The state became all powerful. In order to survive, we were told, individual choice was a luxury Britain could no longer afford.
