What, exactly, do you expect Joe Lieberman to do?
I like it when the AM posts a public warning. Thanks.
His daughter is being killed by order of the man who promised to love, honor, and cherish her. I'd be damn near insane too.
Yep, sort of like what Janet Reno did, not once, but twice.
AND, DCF could legally do it.
Not any more they can't. And we should not be emulating Janet Reno.
That is just rude, and I've come to expect some pretty rude stuff from you.
Until your daughter is starved by the man who promised to love her always, so you can demonstrate how you'd "settle this privately" and "let her go in peace," STFU.
They would have to intravenously hydrate her first than insert a feeding tube and slowly reintroduce feedings!
That might make a valid point should the fluid reduction have occured closer to the time of the injury but after years and year, the damaged areas have calcified.
But then what? I'm all for anything that will save Terri, but will the State of Florida then have custody of her indefinitely? How will Florida be able to ignore the courts completely and kick Michael out as guardian?
Not three people. The death movement has an army working behind the scenes. We need to make sure we function as efficiently as well. The really sad thing is that so many Christians failed to vote in years gone by. We're reaping the judicial appointments of that era -- and we can't afford not to fight for court appointments in the future. Or elections, where judges are elected.
There's mothing illegal about Fla legislature passing this law. But, 9 Pubs and all Dems voted against when it fist came up- Politicians are afraid of public reaction. A bi-partisan Mercy Coalition of National figures can change public opinion, and maybe change the hearts and votes of, at least, some of the 9 Pubs who voted against. Isn't it worth a try to save Terri?
Thank you, for your explanations.
Horrible suggestion. This situation has been caused by the false notion of "privacy" that have allowed too many facts to remain unexamined.
Forgive them for they know not what they do. And, forgive you, for you know not what you say.
Dr. Cranford, who testified for Michael that Terri is PVS doesn't think PVS patients have constitutional rights. [Is Terri a person with constitutional rights? ]
That makes it all the stranger that Michael is insisting on Terri's "right to privacy."
You asked the question in this FR forum, not to Mr. Schindler. I replied exactly as I think the father would have, and I said it politely. What is wrong with you?
Don't tell me I don't what I'm saying. I know exactly what I'm saying.
You stfu. So there.
This is the most common comment from the deathheads.
It makes no sense though.
It's the war is always wrong liberal mantra. Same thought process.
God bless his sweet tormented heart.
I don't really feel I'm a 'deathhead', more of a 'face_reality_head' if you like.
People who can't see the look of love on Terri's face and in her eyes must have a personality disorder.
"They're not the only people in the world who has had a child die."
True enough, Hildy. They are, however, among a very few to have their child (who has done no wrong)to die by court order and to be helpless to do anything for her.
Thanks for your all-knowing wisdom. I still would like to know what action the father would like taken. Sorry, I don't trust you to read his mind.
The ACLU is hoping people will be so traumatized by Terri's starvation that they will support the ACLU in their fight to legalize euthanasia.
The ACLU has already given an award (with dinner) to Gerald Kogan, the former Chief Justice of the Florida State Supreme Court, who supports euthanasia.
ACLU Honors Kogan With Poynter Award
Like I said, go and ask HIM.
Do you really think he would grant me an interview while he is at his daughter's deathbed? Strange opinion, if so.
He has the newspapers as a ready conduit and millions are now hearing his words. If he feels like saying action should be taken, I think he should follow up and tell us what kind. I really would. If it's a good idea, maybe something would happen.
how much have YOU protested outside the hospice? hmmmm?
I would bet on a lot less than Jeb Bush....
go take your hysteria somewhere else, this is getting old and boring.
Thank God common sense is breaking out.....
Can those parts be pared?
Just thought you would appreciate being corrected when you are factually wrong. I should have know better. Bye.
or should have known better...
They still told the protestors (aka YOU) to go home and leave well enough alone. That they are still working to get someone to intervene just shows their love for their daughter.
I really feel sorry for the old guy. He is close to the edge.
Your an idiot.
Where does Florida get the right to starve an innocent woman to death.
She never said she wanted to die like this.
Jeb doesn't get it.
Castro see's what a coward he is.
I wouldn't be shocked if Castro sends another 100,000 Cuban criminals to Miami like he did in 1980.
Jeb will say, well according to Florida law we have to let them in.
JEB = Spineless
It is the same argument that war or killing is always wrong.
According to your argument, if power is used to do something wrong, then power therefore can never be used to do something right.
You make the argument that all uses of power are morally equivalent.
There are just wars, and non-just wars. The liberal peacenik makes no distinction.
I feel sorry for people like verity.
There's a lot of sad hurting people in this world they don't understand or value life because of their own hurt and intellectual shortcomings.
Would it bother you if I ignored you? I can't make out your attempts at analogies.
Oh boy, threats of violence. How cool is that!
You are a coward and a moron?
Look, you are not able to understand intellectual argument. Perhaps you need something physical like a child does.
Have you ever heard the term knock some sense in to you?
Let me tell you old man. You can hurl these cynical comments, ignore thought, be happy in your besotted state where nothing is meaningful to you and you hold scorn for others.
But no one is going to respect you or care for whatever you may have done in your pathetic life.
Thanks for you service in Vietnam. I know why we lost now.
Rather pathetic how you feel your pathetic loss is somehow worthy of marking your identity.
You let people like John Kerry beat you then and now you wallow in it so much you care nothing for liberty, right, wrong, or life. Just cause you are a broken man doesn't mean you have to try and bring your misanthropy to the rest of us.
Knock it off.
If he wants to begin like that he should be able to take it.
Two posts by me, no insults. Two posts of him in response (with no prior history) with silly insults.
OK, but then he has to be able to take it if I thn return in kind.
I will of course defer to the admin mod and you, 68 grunt, can be protected by mommy.
Always funny how some people can dish it out but not take it.
Regardless of who may have started it, please everyone knock off the personal stuff.
I will of course defer to the admin mod
You obnoxious mental midget.
Are you gay or just stupid?
Admin asked us to cool down, amigo.
I'll just call him stupid.
