Interesting -- your post is 666.

I really like the photo of Terri looking so spiffy in her wheelchair -- can someone confirm that's from her trip to the mall for 'makeover' I'd read about somewhere? and when was that. A video loop used to show on CNN, FoxNews of caring Michael outside on a walk with Terri, pointing something out to her. When was that?

I'd like a clarification from someone who knows -- when was the last time Terri was taken out in her wheelchair? I know it broke (was it helped along, the cynic wants to know?), family offered to replace it, and Michael refused. Was that the last Terri was allowed to go out?

Terry is clearly being held prisoner by Michael, and I am losing my patience. This nonsense has gone on at least 10 years too long.

Thanks for all you all are doing.

Maybe. But I think she's a mutant species, or else such a deformed specimen that scientists will have to run DNA tests to see if she's related to humans. She could be our first space troll, y'know.

Interesting article (The Guardian,11/04/03)

I like this part in 1998....

"Schiavo admitted to the guardian ad litam that he HAD
at LEAST "Two romantic involvements" AFTER Terri's collapse."


Key word."He HAD at LEAST TWO romantic involvements"
Okay..He's been with Jodi for @ 8-10 years , that means
he might of had another ROMANTIC 9,10,11,12 years ago ??
These are romantic relationships, what about the other NOT
romantic relationships, ?,hmmmm?

Here's another Key wording by MS..."AFTER Terri's Collapse"
My question: What about JUST Before Terri Collapsee ?, hmmmm

This Guy is a player, was in High School, and thru out..

Felo$ needs to be charge with "Collusion" "Conspiracy"
"Fraud",etc..etc..in a on-going murder (In progress) charges, just to name a few..

I AM happy Judge Greer is seeing the LIGHT, the forces of evil HAD him under there control, BUT now the light is shining more and more... Let's send him CHRISTMAS CARDS..
of Jesus Christ, the Holy Mother, and remind him GOD is watching YOU, and LOVES YOU...Let's remind him of Terri Birthday also.....,since MS and Satan Lawyers are still
blocking any cards,flowers,gifts to Terri, .
Let's send them to JUDGE GREER instead...This way he can forward it to Terri under guard..just a idea

We need to get on Coast to Coast Am radio with George Noory, it's super important now, the sooner the better.
"Let's Roll"....vet out

More likely just another northeastern "Liberal" Kill 'n' Burn carpetbagger troll. Just like the historical figure I use for Type 2 Trolls. They do it in the WESTERN states too as well as the Southern ones. That is how California, Oregon and Wahington got the way they are.

>> Felos: The courts FOUND that its Terri's wish not to be kept alive artificially. They FOUND that she said to Michael and others, "No tubes for me... I don't want to be kept alive artificially. I don't want to linger in this condition." and the court heard both sides, and found that these were her wishes.

A crock of Felos droppings. There is not one bit of admissible evidence that she said anything. Absolutely she did not use THESE words regardless of what this comatose court "found." Note the present tense, the lack of "if." George has her speaking as if cognizant of her condition and choosing to pull her tubes -- but to say that, she couldn't be brain damaged.

Another thing I like is Jeb's attorney, Kenneth Connor, is from the same area of the state.
He know's exactly what kinda good ole boy network is there.

This is looking better and better for Terri.
The dark clouds are opening and the sun is peeking through.
I voted for Jeb Bush and hope this Kenneth Connor runs for something so I can vote for him.
Lord only knows where we would be today if red pick-up had won instead of Jeb.

Thank you God and thank you Barbara Bush, you did a fine job raising those boys.

704 & 711 -- thanks for spelling it out so clearly. That's what I've been waiting for, praying for.

Info from 6/90 physical exam and 1 & 3/91 evaluations: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1011460/posts?page=569#569

THANKS for your work on that. SNIP:

Felos: Yea, but how can you criticize Mr.Shiavo ten years ago, for holding out the same hope that the parents say that they have now, 13 years later? ... I mean he, he for years, believed that Terri COULD get better, and tried valiently to help her get better, experimental treatments, and therapies he did that for a NUMBER of years.

Here's what's been bothering me -- HOW can Schiavo DENY her parents the same hope he had? Why work with someone for "X" amount of time only, then say, "that's it, you're not getting any more treatment" and letting them stagnate for the next 10 years?

Get Terri OUTTA there already!

==========Update on Terri Schindler Schiavo -- 11/7/03

* Terri is not in a coma and not in PVS (persistent vegetative state). This was true in 6/90 doctors exam (read at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1011460/posts?page=569#569 from PDF file)
* A Jacksonville, FL neurologist who examined her last year flatly calls any plans to let her die "MURDER" ; I confirmed this with him. "She's alive....there's no question in my mind she is not brain dead." (see article http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1002670/posts?page=1,100)
* She responds to her family & those around her (see video of her w/mother; also above 3/91 report)
* She is NOT on life support -- she has fewer tubes than Christopher Reeves has! Only one, a feeding tube that many we see out and around have.
* Terri has had no rehabilitation since about 1993 -- not even cloth put into her hands to keep her hands from clenching.
* Guardian has not allowed any recent swallowing tests; only 3 were done in early 90's.
* Her husband/guardian Michael Schiavo has a fiancee with (now) two children & their own home.
*Terri has her own life to get on with as well, even if it’s not the life she or her family would have chosen.

We are praying:
* for Terri's safety in a hostile environment -- she has had some close calls; for some reason these are not being publicized.
* for a true advocate for Terri, who has not had a guardian ad litem since about 1998
* for hard hearts to be softened -- God's work! Especially with Terri in the center of the "right to die" debate (Michael's attorney George Felos and others are deeply invested in this -- may his heart be moved to release Terri.)
* for her husband ("HINO") to be removed as Terri's guardian.
* for Judge Greer to be open minded in the face of “new” evidence. A positive is that Wednesday he did not automatically dismiss the case to have Michael removed as Terri's guardian and replaced by Terri's brother Bobby as had been done in the past.
* for Terri to be put into the care of her family so they can fuss over her as much as they want!
* for all who are drawn to Terri's fight to be convicted of their need for a closer relationship with God, as they recognize and take stand against evil.
* For our country! Is there any doubt we are in a culture war?

What you can do:
* Continue to pray for all concerned -- that God will soften hearts. This is a real life-and-death drama being played out right in front of us; search for answer to what God would have you do.
* GO TO http:www.terrisfight.org for updated information.
* Correct local & national media misuses of "coma" and "vegetative state" -- she is not! Letters, phone calls, and email need to be continued, directed to the media especially, as well as to Gov Bush (thanking him, expressing continued concern).
* Our Bible study class signed a card for Terri just telling her she's in our thoughts and prayers -- on that, all can agree. Terri's birthday is Dec 3 or 4. Sending cards underscores for both the sender and those at the hospice that Terri is a person who is loved, not an inanimate object. Her address is:
Ms. Terri Schindler Schiavo
Woodside Hospice
6774 102nd Avenue N
Pinellas Park, Florida 33780

* Read the transcript of Larry King’s interview with Michael Schiavo last Fri 10/31 at http://www.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0310/27/lkl.00.html SNIP: SCHIAVO: “. . . I'm fortunate to have two women in my life that I love very much. My girlfriend right now has done more for Terri than her own mother did....” SNIP: KING: Are the parents lying or wishful thinking? . . . In order to keep their daughter alive. They don't have a motive, do they? . . . SCHIAVO: Probably just to make my life hell, I guess. Comments or questions for LKL can be sent to http://www.cnn.com/feedback/forms/form5.html?12

* Terri's parents will NOT be on Larry King Live Fri Nov.7 after all for now.

NOTE this photo -- http://www.sptimes.com/News/012500/photos/tb-terri-head.jpg from 11/90, used in last week's Newsweek article. Michael is looking at Terri as if she is indeed "there"; she's looking back just like she does in recent video with her mother (see http://hometown.aol.com/shezza/myhomepage/terri_and_mom.jpg?mtbrand=AOL_US ) . Despite what Michael said in LKL interview, it did NOT take 4 hrs to get either of these photos! I welcome comments and questions at XXXX. Prayerfully researched and sent.

I read on one of the threads that Greer is up for reelection in 04.

That's when we need a bill-board saying " A vote for Greer' is a vote for Death, Yours"

Greer thumped his nose at Jeb Bush and me thinks he put his pickle in the wrong barrel when he sided with Felos

He also sired a child with another woman BEFORE Terri's Collapse and pays child support payments. That child is now 14. He considers himself to be the "loving husband". <>

Hi, Krodg -- did you ever get the info you needed? sorry, am just seeing this. there are html sandboxes that (in less intense times) are a great place to play around & learn in. I'll see if I can find one to ping you to, I just saw it a few days ago. But dummy? nah!

quick notes: use brackets WITHOUT SPACES < and > to enclose these commands:
for paragraph, use p
for break single line use br
for bold use b
for italic use i
for big quickest to just say big.

Imp: Use < / > WITHOUT SPACES make sure you CLOSE those commands at the end to return to 'normal' font, although it might be FR now has a "selfcleaning" feature now.

try it out in a simple post for starters, see if my quick notes make sense. for an important more elaborate, labor & time intensive post, I paste from document so can save. it's tough to lose work in a crash, ESP when the goal is to pass on info or to make a point here -- we all lose in that case.

Death by starvation and dehydration is NOT PAINLESS!!!!!

THANKS for your posts -- showing that the answer to Terri's situation is NOT to simply draw up a living will. So many people do not realize the probs w/this. There is info at terrisfight.org about what folks can do, not just blindly doing a living will. Others have posted w/more info.

George W. Greer was so anti-Bush that nearly all of us thought he was a Democrat with ties to the late Lawton Chiles. In fact, Greer, a NY native, has long worn the "Republican" label in St. Petersburg politics.

YIKES! sorry for delay, I just saw the post in which you mentioned taking up a donation for a wheelchair -- and above this post, CindyDawg is asking about a billboard, which would also need $ donations.

I'm just skimming the thread, sorry if am restating. I like the idea of the wheelchair -- Terri's parents had offered to replace it (wish I knew what year) & Michael had refused. BUT if is done in today's climate, might it go differently? Good point, Republic!

Terri is not sick, she obviously needs to be out and about -- that's ordinary care! SHEESH!!

Also, I do have an idea for a fundraiser for the family, will try to get prelim info. needs imm work if is to be done.

I was wishing that photo of Terri & her mother was on a billboard when I was in the area -- worth a thousand words.

"He's been a loving husband for 13 years" as if this is enough to kill Terri, because her husband has had to endure these 13 years.

"There's nothing that can be done to help Terri" as if being disabled means one deserves to be killed.

This man is so very sick and evil.

where does Mary Jo Melone fit into that scale?

Unfortunately, she is beyond the scale. She has been lacking in brain function for some time now. There is nothing that can be done to help her. I don't know why the SP Times continues to allow her to live. She's really just taking up food and resources while contributing nothing to society.

I have a verbal list that I give to people when they ask me what to look for when choosing a nursing facility. I never thought I would need to but I just added "ask them if maintance is done and what would happen if their wc broke. Here, if someone needs a wc it is ordered and the resident/pt family pays it off as they can. "Everyone that wants to rolls" :')

My aunt got a wheel chair and I believe she told me that Medicare paid for it but she did need a doctor's signature stating she needed it.
Also a close friend of mine contacted a local organization, I'm thinking it was the Lion's Club, anyway they loaned him a wheelchair, delivered it to his home and told him to keep it as long as he wanted it. That was two years ago and he's still using it.

Is there any way we can do the same for Terri? Getting her out in the wheelchair should be simple, matter of course, basic care, DUH! . . . so why not?

It's not like she'll choke on it, lol... < / sarcasm >

Ken Connors is "on" to the game and it will be interesting to see which way Felos scurries without Judge Greer making the rulings.

If there's a lesson here, maybe it's that the greater the injustice, the greater the chance for redemption.

"There are people willing to get Terri a new wheelchair, but Schiavo FORBIDS this too."

What I think we're saying here is, let's make him say that publicly.

We saw his earlier publicity photos of him as the loving husband taking her out for a walk, pointing things out to her -- ya'll remember that video loop? and that still shot of her after visit to salon?

TERRI is still the same person he was doing this for, why not do these ordinary things now? Her needs are still the same, whether she responds on cue or performs acc. to his expectations and time line or not.

May your angels continue to guard and protect you, Terri.

Heavenly Father, we return to give You thanks that You have called to account the Merchants of Death. Those who have perverted the courts of justice are now required to show that they are only of the purest motive. Father, we greatly rejoice in this .. we are eager to learn how a wayward husband who has withheld the most basic care from his wife, can be seen as compassionate and loving, while seeking to end her life.

O God, we continue to pray that confusion and disorder will reign within the enemy's camp .. that no matter the circumstance, the spoken and printed word coming from them will be an indictment. Let their actions and words fool no one, for their mission is to end the life of this mother's child. Thank You that You have brought alongside the Governor one whose reputation is reverence for life .. grant him success as he speaks for Terri's Law .. may he be impassioned on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves.

Creator God, may Your protective hand rest mightily upon Terri, in every hour and in every day. May she thrive where she is, giving testimony to all who look upon her, that You, indeed, have preserved her life. May her parents and brother and sister freely move in and out of her room, bringing comfort and reassurance. We pray, O God, that soon Terri will be returned to the loving care of her family. Turn aside the powers of darkness that would sweep her away .. send the Holy Spirit into the courtroom, that righteousness would prevail.

Thank You, Lord, for sustaining this dear woman through the darkest of days .. be for her the warmth of Sonshine and the promise of Your presence, for surely You are in this place.

In the Sweet Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen ...

This smells like MS's need to protect Terri's "privacy" by forbidding her to leave the hospice. Yeah, that's the ticket! Remember he refused to allow CNN to visit her - but was willing to share other footage to 'prove' she is in a PVS.

This was in a post a few weeks ago in an email letter sent to the St. Petersburg Times, but the newspaper did not print the letter. It sounds real, but we don't know for sure.

TE: George Felos seeks recognition of 'the right to die'. He's a traitor.

TRZ: And what do you want to bet that when he does get near the end, if he can he will find some way to end it quick by taking poison, not slow by cruel drying and hunger.

Or maybe he will have himself frozen so he can bless some future generation with his withered body and his half baked, perverted New Age amalgamations of Eastern philosophies and practices (of which he obviously, to me at least, has had little instruction and less experience), Judeo/Christian concepts (that he appears to sprinkle in as if from a salt shaker) and smattering of Wiccanism (which itself is a Walt Disney version of actual historically authentic pagan practices). 8^p

They will be thrilled! If he is revived sufficiently far into the future they will indeed feel blessed as it's certain that they will conclude that they've found the missing link which proves that God originally intended the Duck Billed Platypus to be His greatest creation and that mankind is merely the unfortunate result of two highly neurotic and oversexed bonobos who mated in a field of exposed uranium isotopes.

They will then embark on the "Felos Project" consisting of the simultaneous mass breeding and reintroduction of the Duck Billed Platypus to all hospitable landmasses on earth and the systematic suicide of all human beings, thenceforth known as "Benobmo Beings."

******************************

My sincerest apologies to Free Republic, I stayed up late last night reading the second book in the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and I seem to have woken up this morning in some sort of reverse hyperliterary neo-spatial non-special continuum. Coffee seems to be having the effect of putting me back to sleep but I should be alright in a while if I take a Sominex and try napping on the treadmill set to Olympic Sprinter mode.
******************************

But seriesly, consider the karma of Felos' actions and the likely outcome is not hard to imagine. In the year 2175 socialism has finally won out and the icy grip of "for the good of the Village" thinking has encrusted the minds of mankind like a New England ice storm in January. They find Felos resting peacefully like a forgotten package of meatballs in the bottom of a commercial meat locker.

They will then thaw him out, thoroughly treat whatever it was that was killing him, and haul him up before the authorities where, in a flagrantly expensive show trial, they will convict him of "a thoughtless waste of resources that could better be used to address the appalling inability of college graduates to understand the basic principles of condom application on long slender fruits and vegetables" and then promptly kill him (after a completely legal pronouncement of guilt of course). For his execution he will be ceremoniously heaved into the Peoples Alligator Pit (the alligator being the new national bird, in spite of its being a reptile, due to its laudable practice, for the good of the species, of eating its own kind).

The following day a law will be passed forbidding anyone from ever thinking of Felos, the trial, his execution or for that matter this law. The lawmakers themselves will disappear without a word or a trace for having mentioned those things in the law.
Felos' freezer compartment will be sent to the Peoples Partially Public Postal Service and Condom Distribution Center
(branch office #PPPPS-CDC-69-4NAK8224GETYWELIV--0 in the town of Gov. Cheese Camp, VT) for use as a container for "undeliverable, unreturnable, undecipherable and generally wasteful of packing material mail".

exactly! and why it was forbidden to shoot video and and take pictures, and Terri's parents were barred from seeing Terri without Michaels rep after they made them public! Those pictures are powerful.

He doesn't like it infringes on her "right to privacy. " . . .or is it her right to life?

Look! God loves us! This is too, too funny!!

Moscow Soros

"The Moscow Soros Foundation has been expelled from its offices by around 40 men in camouflage representing the owner of the building who claimed the group had not paid the rent, Moscow Echo radio reported."

"The young people then came out with boxes of pornographic pictures which they strewed in front of the building in the presence of representatives of Sector-1, the building's owner, the Moscow Echo correspondent reported early Friday."

Perhaps a pre-paid admission to Suncoast could be arranged

I'm not even sure the resources there should be wasted in this manner. :-)

(Sigh!) When will I learn that fiction can never compete with reality?
