I have no words…
On Monday I blogged that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg missed oral arguments for the first time in her tenure because she’s recovering from surgery. Doctors removed cancerous nodules off her lung.
I wrote that people joked about giving her their limbs and organs, but also wouldn’t be surprised if people actually did this.
Say no more! Politico Chief Political Columnist Roger Simon asked Twitter today if anyone would “subtract one day off your life and add it to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life for one extra day of good health.”
Ginsburg also missed oral arguments today. Chief Justice John Roberts said again that she “will participate in the decisions using transcripts of the arguments and court briefs.”
If it were possible, would you subtract one day off your life and add it to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s life for one extra day of good health? If just 10,000 people did this, it would add 27 productive years to her life. pic.twitter.com/RurqFmWZGp

The responses caused me to laugh a little too hard. I looked through those who answered and about 99% mocked Simon over the tweet.
If it were possible, would you all donate $1 to me so that I can become a billionaire? How awesome and productive would that be. If just 10,000 people did this, It would add a purple mattress, a $5 fill up box, and like $8,995 left over.

If you could give a pig wings and turn it into an eagle, would you do that to reduce worldwide carbon emissions, cure the common cold, and raise the pig’s self esteem?
The above makes as much sense as your idiotic tweet regarding RBG. pic.twitter.com/NBXHsG40bG

How about we subtract from her life and give life to one of the babies she’s okay with aborting instead!

Exhibit A: Not every thought should be tweeted.

So cool that so much depends on the health of one frail octogenarian. Cool, healthy system we have here in America.

Maybe she should have realized 10 years ago that retaining her own personal power for as long as possible and dying on the bench is not the best idea for ensuring the integrity of constitutional law as she chooses to interpret it.

No her life has no more value than any other life.

Perhaps you’re investing too much emotional energy in what a single government official decides on your behalf.

You know what would be SO GREAT? We stop relying on the Supreme Court so much and giving them power.
Secondly, the Supreme Court interprets the Constitution. The Constitution is not conservative or liberal. Stop politicizing the Supreme Court and the Constitution. I’ve written before that it’s not hard to interpret the Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights.
I’d tell people to can it, but I find it hilarious. Show off your crazy!
