*looks up what the procedure was*

Sounds like it was a follow-up procedure.

The follow up procedure that takes a half week stay in the hospital ?

For her? Very probably!

It was a minimally invasive stent repair, and they likely needed to keep her in for observation to see if things stayed in place. The duration of the stay in the hospital does not necessarily indicate the severity of the medical issue.

I would not be surprised if somebody tried to set up a scam gofundme to help cover RBG's medical costs. Folks have sunk lower.

I can't speak for other organ traders but I can guarantee that all of the organs I collect for RBG will reach her. If there are extras we put them on ice.

You had two bans last month. Did you think we forgot about those? Or are you one of those people who just thinks the rules don't apply to them and any attempt to enforce the rules is the Moderation Team being mean to you?


This post is not meant to appeal this ruling, I'm sure the mods had legitimate cause.


Rather. I'm quoting it because I want to address an issue it highlights: the one that is created by for life political appointments. With the set up, the official leaves office one of three ways, retirement, impeachment, or death. Which means, if you want to see a particular official out of office you have to hope for one of these three things.


In the case of Justicr Ginsberg it's obvious she's not going to he impeached nor will she retire so long as President Trump is still in office.


Thus, if one wants her gone before Trump is, they really can only hope she dies. Which as I see it, means one can't express the desire to see her gone, without implying they want her dead. Is it ethical than to want her gone in the first place? And if so is it possible to express that with out openly advocating for her demise?

A minimally invasive procedure to replace a stent. In the interests of equal time we should run a headline every time Thomas gets another ingrown hair on his ass. The ghoulishness of Republicans mounting a deathwatch in the hopes they can steal yet another Supreme Court seat before their inevitable electoral debacle is, well, pretty much expected at this point. All that being said, long live RBG.
