Roberts has some kind organic or neurological disease. And he is 69.

Thomas is 75 and the dirt nap is calling him. He turns 76 in a few days.

Kavanaugh should be thrown off because he had > 4,000 tips of abusive behavior towards
women that the FBI and the White House buried during his confirmation hearings.

From Wiki: (bump stock results)
On October 1, 2017, a mass shooting occurred when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowd attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival on the Las Vegas Strip in Nevada from his 32nd-floor suites in the Mandalay Bay hotel. He fired more than 1,000 rounds, killing 60 people[a] and wounding at least 413. The ensuing panic brought the total number of injured to approximately 867. About an hour later, he was found dead in his room from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The motive for the shooting is officially undetermined.
