Who is gonna answer all of my rhetorical questions now???????????????
You need cats ;)
I’m allergic to cats and need to breathe.
LOL, he has been adopted by cats!
We’ve been trying to get our speakers working on the computer, with no luck. I miss out on all kinds of stuff, but at least I have a computer and internet access.
I’m allergic too. I take generic Claritin. We just adopted a little black kitty, whose ears are bigger than his head. We named him Ewok Kitty. That makes three. Midnight hallway hockey is a hoot :-)
Not much can help them now. Same odds as a Jew in a gas chamber.------------------------------------------
"The force that created todays hospice also propels the right-to-die movement." George Felos
8mm is fairly rhetorical; but if the topic is cheese, BB is the resident expert!
Why do you make an issue of that? It was just an opinion.
Good advice - wise owl. :) It was truly a rough ride and your bf did the right thing. Yes, Tim, Terri, dad and all our loved ones that believed and lived God’s Word are celebrating now. Despite all the pain and sorrow, we have the blessed hope. Our faith is truly a blessing.
He is a very wise man, and I am a very lucky woman. I just wish my girls had gotten birthday cakes. Hey, there’s always next year!(from what I understand, my son in law is being transfered to San Fransisco-heck of a lot closer to me than NC)
We have to have faith, or what is the point of our existence...
Is that an actual quote from Felos? What would make him think it was smart to say such a thing?

Is it good to be a rhetorical? If so I will try to be one. I like cheese.
FRONT ROYAL, Virginia, August 8, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - College students are not exactly renowned for their ability to wake up at the crack of dawn, especially on Saturday mornings, when they typically catch up on a week's lost sleep and recover from a hard night of partying the night before. Yet, at one small college in Virginia, for almost three decades now, students have woken up as early as 6:30am every single Saturday morning when school is in session, to attend 7:00 Mass and then travel the hour and fifteen minutes to the Planned Parenthood clinic in Washington D.C. Rain, shine, snow, sleet, or hail, dozens of students from Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia are found at the Clinic by 9:00 Saturday morning, praying and counseling women who have appointments to abort their unborn children. Only in the most extreme weather, when it has been absolutely impossible to make the trip into D.C., have the students canceled this weekly love effort.
And indeed, said Kujawski, Shield of Roses has, by all accounts, saved more than a few lives. In the last several years alone, due to the direct efforts of the group's counselors, at least several women have turned away from Planned Parenthood, and decided not to have abortions. And while the students may never know the unseen successes of their efforts, they are confident that they are there, their hidden victories.
Longtime members of Shield have a host of stories about "saves," and about some of the more dramatic moments in the lives of Shield members, including a trip that many of the members took to Florida to the hospice where Terri Schiavo was living. The students made the 16-hour trip, each way, in a single weekend, to join other Terri supporters in the weeks leading up to her court-ordered execution. "That was an incredible weekend," says Bodoh. "We had to skip classes and push back midterms to go, but just the chance to be there and to do something, even if it was only praying, was something that we could not pass up."
Gainesville, FL (LifeNews.com) -- Assisted suicide crusader Jack Kevorkian is headed to the University of Florida for an October 11 speaking engagement -- which will have the college pay him $50,000. But the event isn't going over well with students there, who are upset that state taxpayer dollars will be used to pay the convicted murderer.
"Once again my school is making national headlines for reasons that make me cringe. It very rarely speaks for me, and I am ashamed my fellow students in the governing body want the cache of Kevorkian at the expense of respect or dignity," Emans says in the Town Hall editorial.
Emans pointed out the irony that Terri Schiavo was a victim of euthanasia in the same state and that the judge who allowed her former husband to take her life was University of Florida graduate George Greer.
"Bioethicist Bill Allen teaches here, who said in an interview that he believed Terri Schiavo was not a person," she added.
On October 11, 2007 Dr. Jack Kevorkian will speak at the University of Florida. His resume includes at least 130 assisted suicides, several notable writings, and an eight year stint in prison (out of the 10-25 years sentenced for second-degree murder in the 1998 poisoning of Thomas Youk). Kevorkian accepted my school's offer by ACCENT, which is the largest student-run speaker's bureau in the nation, as well as a Student Government agency.
Therefore, his $50,000 honorarium is subsidized by taxpayer dollars. Kevorkian's UF stop will probably be his first paid public speaking engagement since his June 1 release from prison, according to Kevorkian's lawyer Mayer Morganroth. "They were actually the first ones to call," Morganroth said of ACCENT. "They sent the request almost immediately after he was out."
Terri Schiavo was euthanized in Pinellas Park, Florida on the order of Pinellas County Court Judge George Greer, a UF alum. Bioethicist Bill Allen teaches here, who said in an interview that he believed Terri Schiavo was not a person (Terri's Foundation already has an email petition setup to oppose Kevorkian's appearance at Florida). The verdict is in: UF does not value life, and espouses the "Culture of Death" Pope John Paul II warned of. How sad we no longer expect anything else from our public universities.

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A leading pro-life advocate says that the new trend in state legislation toward requiring abortion practitioners to allow women to see an ultrasound image of their unborn child prior to the abortion is changing hearts and saving lives. Gary Bauer, the former GOP presidential candidate, says more states should follow the lead.
Ultrasound images have worked in pregnancy centers. When women see a technologically amazing picture of their baby, they typically realize abortion is the worst decision they could make.
The journey to reform Texas Futile Care Law, Texas Right to Lifes number one priority for the 80th Texas Legislative Session, was a challenging and often embittered battle that ended in a disappointing stalemate in the House.
However, the efforts of hundreds of activists, including families whose ailing loved ones were victims of the law and the attorneys and doctors who offered benevolent services to the patients, were not in vain. The statewide and national awareness provoked by this battle will not be forgotten by Texas legislators and the citizens they represent. The end of life euthanasia war has only just begun.
If you are going to San Francisco, you're sure to find an organ grabber there. It is dangerous to mistake Hooters for Hootan.
Sayyyyyy, isn't Hootan an Islamist? Those wacky Islamists, they'll steal your heart away. The best way to a man's heart is through his stomach. (Ok, enough...)

The San Luis Obispo County district attorney's office accused Dr. Hootan Roozrokh, 33, of dependent adult abuse, administering a harmful substance and prescribing an unlawful controlled substance without legitimate medical purpose. The surgeon allegedly ordered massive amounts of narcotic painkillers and sedatives for Ruben Navarro, a physically and mentally disabled man, "to accelerate Mr. Navarro's death," according to a written release from the district attorney. In addition, Roozrokh is accused of administering Betadine, a topical antiseptic, into Navarro's stomach.
Dang, I’m so sorry Mauser. He was a fine man. Prayers up for you and his family.
