This is just the search blurb. I tried bugmenot but it doe not work.

The article itself is a testament to what Terri's fight is about. The inconvenient have been given a death sentency by the courts. Of course the Heralds' wildly leftist leaning will try and blame anyone with the name "Bush".

It is very interesting how the Herald also BURRIED this article in the back pages of the paper today.

Hitler started with homeless vets, then moved on to the children, then to the elderly/terminally ill. then he got to the Jews and political opponents. Wake up and smell the smoke. I wonder how they are going to solve the massive dead body problem. Cremation?

I hope they only withheld food and water to kill them, otherwise they are in deep trouble. </sarcasm>

If the disabled are starved they feel euphoria and according to Attorney Felos, the dying are soooooooo BEAUTIFUL. (/s)

I wonder if legally blind Judge Greer is going to volunteer for "euphoria therapy."

The democrat party has revealed their plan to fix social security. Terri is the first to "contribute" to the democrat party's final solution.

Yep.  I'm registered and this is the gist of the article.  They cite specific cases in Florida.

{snip}

Two developmentally disabled adults who lived in group homes in Brandon, and two others under the care of The ARC in St. Lucie County, have died since October 2004, a month after the state required the operator of the two Brandon group homes to change the way residents received nursing care.

{snip}

Officials at the Agency for Persons with Disabilities have reviewed the four deaths and found no evidence to suggest that statewide cost-cutting measures in any way contributed, said agency spokesman Scottie Howell.

{snip}

In 2001, the state hired a private company, Maximus Inc., to look for ways to save money. Under a $5.2 million, three-year contract, renewed in January 2003, Maximus reviews care plans for disabled Floridians who choose to live outside more costly segregated institutions. The clients usually live with family members, in group homes, or even alone with help.

And that's what Terri's 'legal' death has come down to, it's nothing but a cover-up for all the deaths that have gone before. Greer's wife is/was on the Board of the Hospice.

I used bugmenot account:

and it worked.

Here are the beginning paragraphs of the story:

A federally funded watchdog group is investigating the recent deaths of four disabled Floridians amid an aggressive campaign by the state to cut millions of dollars from programs that provide medical care for disabled people in community settings.

Two developmentally disabled adults who lived in group homes in Brandon, and two others under the care of The ARC in St. Lucie County, have died since October 2004, a month after the state required the operator of the two Brandon group homes to change the way residents received nursing care.

A woman at one Brandon home developed such a severe infection at the site of her feeding tube that she has been hospitalized in intensive care since Feb. 13.

''We will be looking into these deaths,'' said Sylvia Smith, of the watchdog group, the Advocacy Center for Persons with Disabilities in Tallahassee.

``This is a top priority, and it should be a top priority for the state.''

I believe families should have their elderly and incapacitated live with them or vice versa, if possible.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is changing the landscape of American families by encouraging women to stay home and take care of their family, to go without some finiacial things they normally buy with their job. And families are happier and better.

I think it can happen with our parents as well. We've become a nation of throwing away our infirm. We need to repent, and change.

i think part of the lesson here is that if you have an elderly family member in a hospital. STAY WITH THEM AT ALL TIMES.

The modern liberals have treated children as disposable. The ABA and the feministas have pushed to have children as mere accessories of marriage.

It is little wonder that the lesson learned is to dispose of adults when they become inconvenient? I wonder if death by inconvenience is more common among modern liberals compared to conservatives.

Law Changed by Hospice Where Terri is Dying:

Felos was Board member and Chairman of Board. Filed for a motion in Greer's court to remove Terri's feeding tube in 1998.
Felos was on Board of Directors of Hospice until 2001.

Terri was moved to the Florida Suncoast Hospice in 2000.

Hitler's plan was Eugenics, which weeded out the handicapped and the genetically impure in order to build a "master race".

That is why they won't talk about their solutions. It involves Age and $ limits on health care under medicare.

Sent to China, processed, sold back to the US to be used to fertilize the putting greens on exclusive golf courses for politicians.

In all the other socialist nations in Europe, Canada etc.. Terri would have been looooong dead by now. They wouldn't even have needed a court order, just a doctor's determination that it was unlikely she would recover.

...on exclusive golf courses for politicians, doctors, and judges.

This is scary, Wampus, because it's so plausible. Good one!

I bet democrats will dust off more of hitler's old documents and research. The democrats copy verbatim Nazi gun control laws, now they execute the helpless, why not other grotesque aspects of nazi germany.

I bet the research has already been done. I bet it'll be a bipartisan effort.

How could I have forgotten them? Yep, that's right. If you're gonna have an unholy country, it needs an unholy trinity.

"This is scary, Wampus, because it's so plausible."

It is. The Kool-Aid drinkers already have the the spin, and the sheeple will buy it: The ultimate patriotism is to help the economy by reducing production costs, and the Chinese can turn out the fertilizer cheaper than the US-based Soylent Green Company can. Therefore, this is good.

Sheeple: "Yeah, it could be worse, so this must be a good thing! Baaaa!" /bitterness

And what's so ironic about the picture you present is that the Chinese would just love the chance to stab us in the back. To defeat us, if they could.

But it just *would* be the Chinese that the govt./business would, in all likely perversity, turn to in such a scenario.

*shudder* This is too real.

BTW, Happy Easter FRiend. :o)
