Bump for later
If we define brain death as dead, then Terri Schiavo was dead. The eye movement, of which so much as was made, was merely a vestigal nerve response. The optic portion of her brain was gone, I believe atrophied, and she was not cognizant of light; her movement merely being that of sympathic nerves. The autopsy bore that out.
I didn't know that we define blind people as brain dead as you imply.
Regardless, there is a problem with what you say. There is medical evidence that supports that dehydration causes Acute cortical blindness. We all can agree that Terri was dehydrated, right?
Btw, what was your previous screen name? I just like to know to who I am responding to.
If you are saying Terri was brain dead, you are demonstrably wrong. Brain death is a specific medical diagnosis based on rigorous tests and conditions. It is defined as a complete cessation of brain function, including the brain stem. Therefore, a brain dead patient cannot survive without a respirator. Terri could breathe unaided and that alone will tell you she was not brain dead.
>> I didn't know that we define blind people as brain dead
Drs. Cranford and Hammesfahr, representing opposite sides of the legal dispute, both found that Terri had some vision, though of course it was very poor. These were clinical tests, which are substantially more reliable than an autopsy finding. If Dr. Thogmartin is correct that Terri was cortically blind, almost certainly the loss of her remaining vision was caused by the dehydration.
TIMING OF THIS HEARING COULDN'T BE WORSE FOR CRIST. HIS HERO IS IN HOT WATER...Judge Greer has a court date in PENSACOLA on August 18th with the Florida Elections Commission. It appears they are finally looking into Judge Greer's violation of the judicial canons in his 2004 race.
It is a sticky wicket because everyone in the tv spot are Crist cronies from the county that makes Cook County in Chicago blush.
If the FEC has the integrity that the JQC lacks, maybe Greer will finally get the boot. Remember, Judge Greer was called a hero by Crist at a big trial lawyer convention at a West Palm Beach County. Judge Greer mandated the murder of a disabled woman after giving all of her rehab monies to right to die lawyers that REPRESENTED HER ADULTEROUS HUSBAND. THEY WERE NOT HER ATTORNEYS - death obsessed, driven trial lawyers. TERRI SCHIAVO WAS ROBBED BEFORE SHE WAS STARVED/DEHYDRATED TO DEATH.
Crist didn't stop them from killing her or from ROBBING HER FOR THAT MATTER.
He embraced them the right to die scum and in so doing, also the ACLU. He was a lousy AG, so why should he be promoted to be a lousy governor?
I was out today and I wasn't discussing politics but other people were. Seems that Charlie Crist is Florida's Al Gore. Everyone is making fun of him. I had no idea. People from St. Pete are really laughing at Crist's expense. That's what happens in SOCIAL PROMOTIONS. Apparently, CRIST hasn't changed since high school.
CHARLIE CRIST has poor judgment choosing his acquaintances. Crist and Greer are thick as well, thieves.
Terri Schiavo had no directives, she was never represented by counsel (WHERE WAS CHARLIE CRIST?) He should have stepped in and represented her interests but he couldn't because of AMERIKA'S VORST JUDGE GREER who belongs in prison along with the former Sheriff and the State Attorney. Crist's FL AG office told callers that they "didn't have a civil rights dept." His staff was even LYING to avoid helping Terri Schiavo. They followed orders because Greer had to make sure that he could have Terri starved/dehydrated to death. Got it?
Pensacola, August 18th. Greer's violations being heard. Greer is one of Crist's judicial heroes because GREER killed somebody?
Oops. That's what happens when a dunderhead like CHARLIE CRIST gets a social promotion. He was a total failure as FL AG except he did a fine job of handing his troubles over to Jeb. I wish Jeb would quit protecting Crist. It is SO OBVIOUS.
The question is: What happens when a Judge conducts an ILLEGAL CAMPAIGN, along with the Sheriff, the Public Defender, the Prosecutor and a Deputy Cunningham in a tv ad that is all over the internet if it LEADS TO SOMEBODY'S DEATH because the tv spot was illegal and also misleading. The voters imo believed they were voting for a criminal court judge. They were totally fooled. The commercial did not specify that Judge Greer was a guardianship judge. It was very misleading. THROW THE BOOK AT HIM AND HIS LITTLE FRIENDS TOO.
If the FEC says that tv spot is okay, then they are also violating Florida's campaign laws. Remember that campaign laws for judges are a lot stricter than for politicians. If the FEC clears GREER, it's hammer time again. We'll get their phone number up and also their email address.
Is anybody in Florida capable of following their oath of office? I'm just askin' for one honest person who puts justice over political gamesmanship. Is there one?
Terri was murdered. They can't have a mulligan on killing her. She's gone.
By the way, my office tv is burnt out. We haven't had any big lightening strikes and my clocks work but my tv is absolutely shot.
I'll find the jpeg and we will re-post it. There's another woman and a few more men who joined the COALITION TO KILL TERRI, to vote against her life...
The state may seem to run on time so to speak, but Tallahassee is a mess. I believe Jeb knows it and he's getting while the getting's good.
Since Terri had no counsel, she was denied a fundamental right of every American. Charlie Crist had a duty as Fl AG to investigate all the intricacies of Terri Schiavo's circumstance. He couldn't do that because of his ties to the Pinellas judicial tyrannists, to the Sheriff and to the State Attorney anad also his relationships with DCF and ACHA.
There was an investigation and the investigator was told to drop it even though he was making progress as far as all the violations and wrongdoing against Terri Schiavo. Who told the investigator to call it off? CHARLIE CRIST'S CURRENT ADVISOR, CLAY ROBERTS.
Crist's current advisor was responsible for stopping the ongoing investigation that was "founded".
Crist was directly involved. Directly. He cannot say he's pro-life. He can't do that because Clay Roberts, his current advisor stopped the investigation and who told Clay Roberts to stop it? CRIST for GREER?
As governor, what will he do? Will he look the other way the next time a husband wants his wife dead so he can marry the woman who had his illegitimate children?
Have you ever noticed that Crist resembles Dr. Kevorkian? He might as well act like him since CRIST only values the lives of teachers, developers, the death lobby, and the AARP.
It is ignorant when posters give Michael way too many rights for being a bad husband. "One man had the legal authority to make the decisions related to Teri's life and that man was her husband."
There were plenty of others willing to take over the guardianship who would have provided the rehabilitation and love that Terri needed but was denied.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. NOT Judge Greer, Sheriff Rice, State Attorney Bernie McCabe, not Charlie Crist, not Judge Whittemore, not George Felos, Debra Bushnell, Ham Baskin, et al, the ACLU, not Howard Dean either. Not scheming democrats and misquided republicans in name only!
It's time for Charlie Crist's social promotions to end. I'm afraid he's just getting warmed up. He's only going to help special interests and there are NO, I repeat NO photos of Charlie Crist with a person in a wheelchair. That speaks volumes about indifference. Volumes. fregards, FV
NOT JUDGE DAVID DEMERS, NOT JUDGE W. DOUGLAS BAIRD, NOT JAY WOLFSON OR GINNIE BROWNE-WAIT either. They tooketh away and it was all based upon a LIE.
Page One. "you have to get beyond hello."
Page Two. go to the dictionary and look up "constituents". That would be all the people you don't care about.
Tom Gallagher for Governor. I need to check my email and see what's going on...
I REPEAT: Judge Greer hearing in PENSACOLA on August 18th by the FEC. CALL THE FEC TO GET MORE INFO ON THE HEARING...
If we have anyone in Pensacola, they should attend the hearing and they'll get to see Greer's tv commercial and watch him explain how he pulled it off, you know breaking the law like that.
I think he's an atheist so won't he be surprised when he gets there...
August 17th at 4:00 pm est - 555 W. Pensacola St. Tallahassee.
Crist called J. Greer a hero after Terri Schiavo died from no water or nutrition for 13 days thanks to Greer.
It would be impossible to out flame Cindy Sheehan. Not even Pat Robertson could do that.
Terri on the road to recovery before the second stage began.
