March 11, 1936 - February 13, 2016

In today's world, you do not get to escape your duties even after death. Antonin Scalia's body was still warm when both sides of the isle started using him as a political tool. I understand that his seat needs to be filled and I also understand that both sides would like that seat to be filled with somebody that benefits their party. That being said, these people are supposed to be our leaders, how about leading the people of this country in a direction that has some sort of decency?

Antonin Scalia was 79 when he passed and at that point the cause of death can simply be, being 79. however, the initial reports of the judge being found with a pillow over his head (which has since been changed to "not over his face as some have been saying. The pillow was against the headboard."), pajamas unwrinkled, the families request for no autopsy and the owner of the ranch being John Poindexter, a Texas millionaire businessman also noted for being a donor to the democrat Party. Add to this the motive of Obama being able to nominate a progressive liberal democrat into the position before his final term ends and you open the inevitable door to conspiracy theories.

So not only are both sides of the isle using this man's death to further their political agendas, campaigns, legacies but also the alternative news sources are also picking the bones of Scalia's body for their personal gain..........It is pretty disgusting what we have become as a people.

I personally don't want Obama to nominate a progressive liberal democrat into that seat because I want a balance in all levels of government. Any side with total control would be absolute chaos. I don't think if somebody would go out of their way to assassinate a 79-year man when you could just as easy just wait, time will eventually do the job for you. I think republicans will be doing the job that republican voters elected them to do by blocking Obamas nomination.

Basically, there is nothing really to discuss concerning this whole incident, apart from this guys life and achievements. He is permanently retired, maybe let the man rest in peace.

If however, the republicans do a half-assed job of blocking Obama's nominee and the supreme court does end up leaning towards the progressive side, then open this incident up for discussion but until that point the only thing you should be discussing is why the president of the united states is not representing the people by attending the Funeral of a member of the supreme court? regardless of your politics, at this point its about respect.
