FEEDING FRENZY

THE FOLKS WHO BROUGHT YOU SMALL GOVERNMENT AND THE RIGHTS OF STATES ( OR WAS THAT 'ESTATES' ), HAVE RELEASED THEIR NEW SPRING PRODUCT LINE.
HAVING RESCUED THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE FROM THE SODOMITES, THEY NOW BRING US THE SANCTITY OF LIFE ITSELF. THEY CALL IT----AND THEY'RE VERY GOOD AT RENAMING THINGS--- THE CULTURE OF LIFE. ANYONE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH 'THE CULTURE OF LIFE'?
BUSH AND COMPANY ARE SO ENAMORED OF LIFE THAT THEY'RE WILLING TO UNDERGO SOME DEATHBED CONVERSIONS. YES, THEY SUPPORT THE DEATH PENALTY. YES, THEY'VE KILLED MORE PEOPLE IN THE PAST TWO YEARS THEN ALL OF EARTH'S MONSTERS COMBINED. YES, THE WANT TO CUT BACK ON MEDICARE AND MEDICAID. AND YES, THEY'VE DIRECTED A POLICY WHICH HAS MADE THE ENVIRONMENT LESS HEALTHY FOR LIVING. THIS 'MURDER INC.' ADMINISTRATION HAS EVEN CHAMPIONED THE STEMMING OF STEM CELL RESEARCH FOR THE AILING, ALL IN THE NAME OF PROTECTING THE UNUSED CELLS STORED IN FERTILITY CLINICS. LOVE THE FETUS, HATE THE CHILD.
BUT THEY SAW THE TWO MINUTES OF VIDEO OUT OF THE PAST FOURTEEN YEARS OF TERRI SCHIAVO'S LIFE. THEY SAW THE EYES MOVE AND BLINK. THEY SAW THE OPEN-MOUTHED SMILE. THEY DISTRIBUTED TALKING POINTS WHICH CALLED IT, "A GREAT POLITICAL ISSUE".
WHAT THE CENSORED VIDEO DIDN'T SHOW WAS THE URINARY CATHETER, OR THE ULCERATING BED SORES. THE VIDEO DIDN'T FEATURE THE MANUAL FECES REMOVAL , THE ATROPHY OF THE BODY, OR THE FROZEN CONSTRICTIONS OF THE JOINTS.
THE SANCTITY OF TERRI SCHIAVO'S MARRIAGE AND SPOKEN WISHES TO HER HUSBAND MICHAEL DOESN'T MATTER MUCH HERE. THERE WAS A FEEDING FRENZY TO REINSERT THAT FEEDING TUBE. WITH ENOUGH TUBES AND DEVICES PEOPLE MAY NEVER HAVE TO TECHNICALLY DIE. THEY COULD VEGATATE FOREVER.
PERHAPS GEORGE BUSH WILL TAKE TERRI ALONG ON AIR FORCE ONE SO THAT SHE CAN PARTICIPATE IN HIS TOWN HALL MEETINGS. THE MEETINGS WHICH BAR THE BLUE SIDE OF TOWN. LET AMERICA SEE JUST HOW ALIVE SHE REALLY IS, AND HOW DEADLY OUR ADMINISTRATION HAS BECOME.

What is it like being so out of control and so hate filled that you can't see that Terri deserves to live. Even men who have committed heinous crimes and are on death row are killed via injection. The ACLU would cause an uproar if anyone suggested that they starve them to death. If you get this in time, watch Hannity and Colmes tonight (Tuesday)

As a practicing surgeon, I have personally seen far too many patients suffer needlessly. Terri's wishes should be honored. However, the elephant in the room here is that Terri has no living will and there is question as to what her wishes are. Having said that, I find it difficult to justify removing her feeding tube on a moral level. This however does not justify congress trampling the states previous rulings. This certainly is not a federal issue, and sets an extremely dangerous precedent.

OUT OF CONTROL? COME ON NOW.
THIS IS NOT A PUNISHMENT. IT'S HONORING HER WISHES TO NOT SUFFER. THE ONLY THING WRONG HERE IS THAT SHE NEVER PUT IT IN WRITING. I SENT AN ADDENDUM TO MY LIVING WILL TO MY LAWYER YESTERDAY.

ASSMAN, AGREED. LIVING WILLS ARE THE ONLY WAY TO AVOID THIS DISASTER. WE ARE LEFT TO RELY ON THE WORD OF HER HUSBAND. NOT AN IDEAL SOURCE OF RESOLUTION.
WHEN YOU SAY THAT YOU COULD NOT REMOVE THE TUBE ON A MORAL LEVEL, DO YOU MEAN BECAUSE NO LIVING WILL IS AVAILABLE? IF THERE WAS A LIVING WILL WOULD YOU STILL REFUSE TO REMOVE THE FEEDING TUBE. PLEASE CLARIFY.

First of all, no one can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was Terri's wish. Secondly, if she requested no feeding tube it would not have been inserted in the first place. Thirdly, when they were about to remove her feeding tube, her attorney told her what was about to happen and explained that if she would only say the words "I want to live"...this young woman spoke and said in a loud voice, "I WANNNNNNNNNNNN"
Fourthly, as a Catholic person she would not want extraordinary means of staying alive. Nourishment is not extraordinary.

FIRSTLY... DOUBTS DON'T HAVE SHADOWS.
WE NEVER HEARD HER SPEAK OR ENDORSE HER WISH...SO WE RELIED ON THE 'SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE'...
REMEMBER THAT CONCEPT WHEN THE GOD-SQUADERS WERE SAVING THE UNIVERSE FROM THE SHAME-SHAME GAYS WHO WANTED TO GET MARRIED?

SECONDLY...YOU ARE FLAT WRONG.STUFF LIKE THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.

THIRDLY...SHOW ME THE VIDEO-TAPE OF THIS WOMAN SAYING 'I WAAANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN'.
THIS IS NOT BULLSHIT.
THIS IS FOXSHIT !
YOU REALLY BELIEVE CRAP LIKE THIS DON'T YOU? C'MON MAN. GET A GRIP.
HEY, WHAT ARE YOU A DOCTOR OF?

AND FINALLY...MR. PECE KNOWS WHAT "...SHE WOULD NOT...", WANT BASED ON HER BEING A CATHOLIC! ME THINKS MR. PECE IS STARTING TO THINK THAT HE'S GOD'S DEPUTY DAWG.
I LISTENED TO A MR. SCARBOROUGH, A THEO-CON ON C-SPAN THIS MORNING.
HE SCARES ME MORE THAN 'DRACULA MEETS THE EXORCIST'! SOME 'HOLY' PEOPLE HAVE HOLES IN THEIR HEADS.
