Justice Ginsburg: "Future Wiser" Court may eventually overrule Heller.
Volokh Conspiracy ^ | 12-20-2009 | David Kopel

On Thursday, Dec. 17, Justice Ginsburg spoke at a luncheon of the Harvard Club of Washington, D.C. I was not present at the luncheon, but I have heard, third-hand, that she spoke on the value of dissenting opinions. She said that sometimes a dissent can become the majority of a “future, wiser court.” As an example, she pointed to the dissent in District of Columbia v. Heller.

Ginsburg’s translation: “Just wait to the Marxist occupant of the White House appoints a couple more like me.”

Puerto Ricans just like the judge herself have attempted to assassinate all the members of the House of Representatives.

And that is why I am very nervous about any 2nd amendment cases going to the courts.

We are one ruling away from a total gun ban.

Gosh, what a revelation as a prelude to revolution.

D@mn 2nd is just too much of a late comer to hold any relevancy to dictation in government.

Without it, the rule of law is a joke, it all a matter of naked political power.

Stare Decisis only matters if it upholds a liberal precedent. It doesn't matter if the marxists want to throw away a ruling that actually upholds the Constitution.

Think how quickly the libtards overruled Bowers v. Hardwick with Lawrence v. Texas.

13 years. Stare Decisis be damned.

My investment advice:

Invest in survival items.
Invest in pitchforks.

Go long on America as our Founding Fathers established her.

Dred was made moot by the 13th Amendment, not being “overridden”, which is impossible, since the Supreme Court can't override itself.

It has been tried and proved over the centuries that the founding fathers were wise beyond anything we have or likely will see in the future.

Hopefully soon, Ginsburg will go room temp and travel on to meet the Creator... she’ll have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do. Until then, she remains a danger to what remains of this nation.

Ginsberg is truly vile. As a Jew it makes me sick to behold her disgusting example to other Jews. But I wish her the best of health, because giving Huseein another nominee would be heartbreaking.

Well I guess it depends on your definition of ‘wiser’ Justice Ginsberg. I could just as easily say a dumbed down idiotic stupified anti-Constitution court with an IQ on the level of the populace in ‘Idiocarcy’ would be needed to rule differently.

Why don’t you shut your pie-hold and leave doubt as to if you’re this stupid or not.

I see your posts out there LVR. I like what I’m seeing, I just don’t aways jump in. Keep up the good work. I certainly appreciate it.

I share your hopes for this nation. It’s time for Conservatives to network, to become in your face, and put an end to this expletive deleted nonsense.
