Those who have not taken a position on what happened to Terri Schiavo can find some sense of direction in the positions Michael has taken in the political world.

The Shiavo mess was a disaster for the Republican party. A classic example of overreach to pander to the base while turning off the rest of the country.

As hard as it may be to accept, Michael Shiavo was her husband and had every right to make the decisions for Terri.

If I was in the same position, I probably would have deferred to the parents plea for their daughter, however other husbands will be thankful in the future that this debacle didn't eviscerate husbands rights.

You are truly a one-trick pony.

do you suppose he might have gotten Terri Schiavo's wishes mixed-up as well? (He does claim to have a bad memory from what I read.)

As I've said before, I don't think Mikey was confused at all about what Terri's wishes were. The fact of the matter was that Terri's wishes didn't coincide with his desire to see her dead. We can speculate as to his motivations (and many of our visitors love to give him the benefit of the doubt), but we cannot ignore the simple truth that everything he did from the time of her accident onwards was designed to ensure that she NEVER GOT BETTER AND WOULD EVENTUALLY DIE.

Do you suppose Michael Schiavo will ever tell us what happened to Terri that fateful night in 1990? He has told several different, conflicting stories -- under oath -- and is also known to have lied to police investigators. Why? What is he hiding? Why is he so scared of the truth?

Michael's supporters are staking their own intellectual reputation on a proven liar.

Memo to visitors: It is a new month and time to ask once more the most important question in the Terri Schiavo story. Namely, how did Terri, a young, healthy woman asleep in bed one Saturday night, suddenly end up on a hallway floor, face down, unconscious, unresponsive, in cardiopulmonary arrest, making gurgling noises, and suffering from numerous traumatic internal injuries -- how did she suffer those injuries right after Michael Schiavo came home late from work?

We have some facts and clues to consider.

1) Nobody else was present

2) The coroner ruled out the "bulimia" story that Michael had used as an alibi. Now he has no alibi.

3) Michael is known to have lied to the police who came to investigate, and has given different, inconsistent accounts of what happened.

4) The hospital could not find any natural cause for Terri's condition or injuries.

5) Terri suffered internal injuries that were comparable to being in a bad auto wreck -- except she wasn't in one.

6) Terri and Michael were known to have been fighting heatedly all that day.

7) Terri's blood tests showed at least two highly abnormal results associated with being assaulted.

8) Statistically, domestic violence, by husbands and boy friends, is the #1 cause of death and injury to young women.

Do we have any answers to this mystery?

The march toward forced euthanasia continues unabated. The killing of Terri Schiavo Schindler escalated the decline of medical standards.

Act 169. Enacted by Senate (SB 628 ) Nov 19, 2006. Signed by Gov. Rendell the next day.

This allows for the killing of incapcitated individuals without their consent.

The slow starvation and dehydration death of Terri Shiavo was the most reprehensible act committed by the US judicial system in years.

(Especially considering that Terri's parents were 1,000 percent willing to take over her care, and the fact that the so-called husband had abandoned her which in effect should have negated his control over her affairs.)

Many of those leaders (like Sen. Santorum) who stood up in support of this woman ultimately suffered at the ballot box due to the selfish people who said one of two things to themselves.

It was either, "Gee, how dare the government get involved in the personal affairs of these private citizens". OR "How dare the court force me to keep my spouse alive, especially if I didn't love her anymore and especially if she was a physical and financial burden."

Ironically, the government already plays a HUGE role in the lives of ALL couples every day through divorce laws, estate taxes, child custody, and everything else one can think of.

Shallow, shallow are the liberal technicians who labor so to eliminate the weak and the disabled. Their idea of heaven is pure selfishness. But life is empty without challenge and we learn nothing without suffering and adversity. The liberals think they are creating perfect beings, but will succeed only in populating the world with helpless spoiled brats.

>> What they [scientists engaged in eugenics] don’t understand is that those who need our loving care and compassion are not merely burdens. They are here, as part of God’s great design, to force us to focus on something more than ourselves, to make us better human beings than we would be without them. They are here to help us get to heaven.

What the Disabled Do for the Rest of Us

So...does anyone ever actually try to change people's minds any more, or are we all just getting off on calling each other names?

I loathe euthanasia as much as anything in this world, but condemning everyone who disagrees as soulless monsters and refusing to speak to them rationally will get us nowhere.

People often have good reasons for holding imperfect positions. If we wish to change their minds, and through them the entire nation, we must address those issues directly and with love.

"The autopsy goes on to say that Terri's brain was 'profoundly atrophied' and only half the normal size. Fine. If that's what the experts tell us, there is no problem believing them. But what does that mean, that she was only half human, only half a person, or that she had only half the rights the rest of us have? That is a conclusion we must never accept. That is a conclusion that does not come from autopsy but from a callous disregard for human life.

"Terri did not die from atrophy of the brain. She died from atrophy of compassion. Too many people, starting with Michael, were unwilling to accept the fact that profoundly injured people require profound compassion and care. Even if the autopsy showed that Terri was ten times more damaged than she was, our moral obligation to respect and protect her life would not change at all. We don't have to pass a test to qualify for our human rights. An autopsy is a measure of physical damage, not human rights.

"The autopsy says Terri was blind. That is not the morally relevant point. The point is that we are blind -- blind too often to the fact that even the disabled and the severely injured have the same dignity and worth as the rest of us, and show forth the image and glory of God even in their brokenness."

-- Father Frank Pavone

Schiavo is a killer and an adulterer. No one should be surprised that he is also a liar.

I have a feeling “duh” mode is Michael’s default setting.

Pleased to report, Henrietta the turkey is back at the bird feeders this morning. The day dawns to a crystalline blue sky. Yesterday's clouds have vanished like the trolls. Let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad.

And maybe kick some butt.
