A Short Post on Trump's Candidate For The Supreme Court

Donald Trump thinks that replacing Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Amy Coney Barrett on the bench of the US Supreme Court is an excellent idea.  After all, wimminz is wimminz, right?

Bader Ginsburg was an incredible fighter for the law to treat women and men fairly*.  Coney Barrett's views on what fair treatment might be are likely to be just a little different as I wrote in 2018  when she was also considered for the court.

If they can, the Democrats should refuse to grant Coney Barrett a hearing before the elections, the way the Republicans did in 2016 with Obama's candidate to the Supreme Court, Judge Merrick Garland.


This source lists five laws which Bader Ginsburg championed before she became a Supreme Court Justice.  Reading the list is also a good reminder of how very recent many of those changes are, even though most of us now take them for granted.
