As I inferred just upthread, the elites have granted us with all magnanimity, three possibilities in November, the Marx brothers, Groucho, Harpie, and Karl. The challenge is to guess which one is the farthest left, who would bring down our Republic the quickest. Our choice is limited to that if the elites have their way.

Wagglebee started a thread on the topic and it is, uhhhh, stirring up some emotions.

To all of you FRiberals out there, and that means all of you Rooty Rooters and Romneyites, it's your fault that the GOP is almost for certain stuck with McCain as the nominee. Now, I don't mean those of you who voted for Romney on Super Tuesday in an effort to split the vote, but the rest of you are culpable.

Conservative FReepers have spent the past year listening to the likes of you tell us that conservatives have "had their foot on the neck" of the GOP for too long. We were told that all that mattered was someone who was strong on terror. We were told that we needed someone with strong name recognition. We were told that generally the GOP decides whose "turn it is" and then nominates that person. We were told that we needed someone who can get independent votes. We were told that ANY Republican would nominate strict constructionists to the Federal bench. We were told that winning was all that mattered............

Message to the FRiberal RINOs: McCain is YOUR Fault!

This SUNDAY is Lisa MacPherson’s birthday had she not died suspiciously of dehydration at the Scientology Hotel in downtown Clearwater. There is a group called “anonymous” who is holding worldwide demonstrations against the sci’s on Lisa’s birthday.

I copied the gist of the website for Lauren, latest as of today. Omitted some images and graphics so it would load faster. Thanks, Les, for all you do...

.........................


Lauren Marie Richardson is a twenty-three year old woman who suffered an anoxic brain injury after an accident on August 28, 2006.

  Lauren's life is endangered by a recent court decision made by Master Sam Glasscock III, by which her feeding tube will be removed.  As a disabled citizen, she is defenseless against the court-approved, imposed act of dehydration and starvation intended to cause her death.

  Lauren gave birth to a baby girl during this ordeal, and has not been allowed to see her child.  This little baby girl needs a chance to know her mother.  We appeal to each person with compassion and love to understand why we wish to bring Lauren home and care for her.

  Lauren's situation is greater than you can imagine.  Her story should be told, and we pray that it has a happy ending.
Lauren is....
....Responsive
....She is NOT brain dead
- she is disabled
....Some doctors say that with therapy
she may soon eat on her own.

A glimpse from Mrs. Grundy in the Andalusia Star, a tiny excerpt to be sure...

The Portly One heard later that death threats and ugly, verbal protests had been received by the Chautauqua's officials prior to Rove's arrival. Threats had also been received because of another speaker, Bobby Schindler, brother to Terri Schiavo, the disabled woman who was allowed to die, with court approval, of starvation and dehydration. (The reader is advised to note that the way younger adults treat older adults in our churches is a whiff of the growing acceptance of euthanasia, a natural result of the acceptance of abortion of innocent babies.)

Overheard, out and about, Mrs. Grundy sees all, tells all

Washington Post Factos in their .com post show a no Wynn scenario for anyone with the audacity to side with those hoping to save Terri's life. How dare he!!!

Mr. Wynn has long touted what he regards as a pragmatic ability to work across partisan lines. We're all for bipartisanship, but in Mr. Wynn's case, too often his stances have been unthinking and out of step with his district's interests. His vote to scrap the estate tax suggested he was indifferent to his own middle-class constituents. By flip-flopping on fuel-efficiency standards and opposing campaign finance reforms, he showed his contempt for clean air and clean government. And he seems scarcely aware of the import of his votes to permit federal courts to intervene in the Terri Schiavo case and to support a constitutional amendment banning flag-burning: granting federal courts a license to meddle in private affairs and cramping free speech............

I can understand the concern about these antics, but why, just why do we never refer to Daniel Pearl's right-to-die in the similarly compassionate care of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed ?

It's a good thing Chicago's two sports radio stations, WMVP and WSCR, are bottom feeders in the quarterly ratings. Otherwise, the perception might be that their hosts define the city. And heaven help us if we were personified by a collection of crude, disgusting cavemen who spew anti-Semitism, conduct ``hug a Black'' missions, make fun of people on life support, refer to a female TV executive as ``a bitch'' and react to Bill Wirtz's passing by asking which local figures should die next.

~Snip~

Another problem is allowing sports hosts with low IQs to pontificate about social issues. For years, WSCR's Mike North has embarrassed his hometown by forcing his views on race, religion and current events when, in truth, he's just a goof who was pulled out of a hot-dog stand 15 years ago. North has a hard enough time putting together a sports argument, much less breaking down Hillary vs. Obama. But there he was, mimicking and mocking brain-damaged Terri Schiavo during her right-to-die drama. Sorry, but why is a sports host telling me about Terri Schiavo? And wouldn't I want to scream if I heard him ridiculing her, wondering how he might feel if she was one of his family members?................

Dare I say it again? Perhaps the care given by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to Daniel Pearl was more like physician assisted suicide. At least that is how the ACLU (Awful Communist Leftie Unuchs) see it...

As Executive Director of the Florida affiliate of the American Civil Liberties Union, Simon has overall responsibility for the ACLU's legal, public education, legislative lobbying, and membership and fund-raising programs. During Simon's tenure with the ACLU, the organization has been involved in cases and controversies dealing with school vouchers, charter schools, religious practices in the public schools, abortion rights, physician-assisted suicide (Schiavo), voting rights, and numerous controversies involving freedom of speech.................

A sign of the Times in a thread by wagglebee...

LOS ANGELES, February 8, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An article published today in the LA Times gives new details about five abortion mills in southern California, owned by Bertha Bugarin, that were raided last summer by a special unit of the Los Angeles Police Department, the Health Authority Law Enforcement Task Force (HALT).

At the time of the raids Bertha Bugarin and her sister were arrested and then released on bail. They have now been charged with practicing medicine without a license on five patients in February and March 2007. The LAPD charges Bertha Bugarin "with five felony counts of practicing medicine without certification and two misdemeanor counts of dispensing medication without a license," while Raquel "is charged in the same complaint with five felony counts of aiding or abetting the practice of medicine without certification.".........

“..Some doctors say that with therapy

It just keeps getting worse. They don’t even want to give disabled people a CHANCE any more, even the young. Imagine what they do with the elderly when they have the chance.

Lauren is such a beautiful young woman.

I pray each day for and end to abortion, euthanasia, forced “euthanasia,” etc..

More prayers for Lauren.

I smell death attorneys from Florida all over Delaware egging mom on. Maybe mom gets money from Social Security to care for the child if Lauren dies. You know some folks, even moms will sell out even for just a little cash.

If mom believes the child is a REPLICA of Lauren so that Lauren CAN BE KILLED, that's one twisted mother.

Subject: My call to Delaware Gov Minner on behalf of Lauren Richardson

The woman fielding calls said the Governor has no plans
to get involved in a matter before the courts.

I said as the Executive Branch leader she has a responsibility
to protect innocent life.

She kept saying she couldn't because it is a judicial matter.

I pointed out that she has the power to pardon criminals
so she should pardon an innocent woman who has
someone trying to starve her with spurious motives.

I asked if she'd please make note of the calls about this
grievous situation.

She said she'd make note of my call (implying I'm the only
one who has called.)

I said we'd be happy to generate more.

BTW, the first person to answer the phone seemed
sympathetic and very happy to pass my call along.

Leslie

Calls on Lauren's behalf can be made to Delaware
Governor Ruth Ann Minner at:

Wilmington Office: 302- 577-3210
Dover Office: 302-744-4101

Lauren's family has the info up on their web site www.Lifeforlauren.org
about Ambien.  We should all be praying that they will somehow be able to
try this therapy which has been successful with other locked in people.

Hale and farewell...

Poor lefties on Puffington Host think they have out-voted God again and declared God a loser. I conclude this because they suppose they have completely vanquished His people.

Now they smell victory as they see us stuck with a choice amongst their beloved three Marx brothers, Groucho, Harpie, and Karl as the only possible winners quashing their hated and our loved America. And they gloat and prance like only foolish lefties can do. I can only envision this guy Hale drooling or foaming slightly at the mouth as his fingers trembled with joy over the keyboard.

..............................

You guys controlled the While House and Congress for 6 years. The country saw what you want to accomplish and are experiencing the impact of your policies. And guess what? THEY THINK CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT STINKS.

~Snip~

Terry Schiavo: This was by far the clearest indication of what the religious right will do if they attain power. And it isn't pretty. Let's tackle this by showing how clearly this situation violated literally every core Republican belief.

"Republicans believe in state's rights." This situation was litigated for years at the state level, in an area of law that traditionally has happened at the state level. The religious right didn't like the result, so they made it a federal issue.

"Republicans believe in individual rights." Schiavo's husband demonstrated in court that his wife wanted to die should her then current situation happen to her. That was her individual choice. A judge agreed. The religious right decided that just wasn't good enough....................

Dr. West of the Heritage Foundation examines in detail what passes for thinking behind the left.

Thread by wagglebee.

"An age of science is necessarily an age of material­ism," wrote Hugh Elliot early in the last century. "Ours is a scientific age, and it may be said with truth that we are all materialists now."[1]

One does not have to look far to discover the con­tinued accuracy of Elliot's assessment. Scientific materialism--the claim that everything in the uni­verse can be fully explained by science as the prod­ucts of unintelligent matter and energy--has become the operating assumption for much of American politics and culture. We are repeatedly told today that our behaviors, our emotions, even our moral and religious longings are reducible to some combination of physical processes interacting with our environment..................

Where are our freepers near Delaware? If the temps warm up, it’s time for some sign demonstrations at the Governor’s Mansion, at the Capital, etc. We need a map of that part of the country here like we did re: Terri. This is a Call to Action. Les maybe find out from JR or an admin mod where we can put a Call to Action for Lauren and people can post what they did for Lauren in response to the Call to Action. It needs to be a separate thread imo.

Who gave judges the power to kill innocent people? Maybe THE LAW in Delaware needs to be challenged by somebody. Guess the Delaware judge took J. GREER'S CORRESPONDENCE COURSE "How to Kill an Innocent Woman" or just fleece her (ala Hulk Hogan's wife is getting fleeced imo by Greer).

www.judgegeorgegreer.com

The powerful republicans behind J. Greer are not doing well with the potus nominating process. It's about time the powerful potentates experienced failure as they have ruined countless lives "for the party".

Lauren wears a cross. She'd never want to be tortured to death. The other team of cultist/experts pushing for this barbaric act does not wear crosses. They are probably drawing pentagrams in the dirt and bribing judges, medical staff and maybe even mom. If a death lawyer tells mom this is bigger than Lauren, mom will be their puppet and mom will be too oppressed to change her mind. Pray for mom and for dad but most of all, for Lauren.

Making the photo this size makes a nice COPY/DOWNLOAD that can be enlarged at a copy store and stuck on a sign.

I can't think of a slogan but it should have the Governor of Delaware's phone number and email on it. AND, A MAIN NUMBER FOR THE LEGISLATURE in Delaware on it.

Promise not to laugh, I am really sure it would hurt her feelings because she is really serious about it...

After all it is through the myopic field glasses of a liberal and that is how she sees the world.

The scandals mounted, and even with our weak and biased media, we recognized a pattern of corruption. I've culled lists, and my own journals, and came up with over 7 pages of disasters & scandals. I tried to edit is as much as possible.

Here's a partial list of what's caused the fatigue that helps Obama:

secret energy plans, failure to recognize and address global warming, Terry Schiavo, trying to roadblock the 9/11 commission and then failing to implement the recommendations, false, cherry picked intelligence, Cheney's Preventive war doctrine (requires no eminent threat, and has always been considered a war crime), state of the union lies, bloated deficits, greed, tax cuts for the wealthy, illegal surveillance (SWIFT), war mongering, war profiteering (Civilian Contractors), loss of civil rights (Patriot Act), acceptance of torture (Military Commissions Act), black prisons and renditions, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, false military reporting (Pat Tillman, Jessica Lynch, et al), lack of diplomatic relations or attempts at diplomatic solutions - ANYWHERE.; and the distasteful, long tortured reign of the rubber stamping GOP congress.

~Snip~

As long as a Democrat wins in November, we have nothing to fear. We just need to put the emotion aside and accept whoever the nominee is, and then all come together to win.

Again, promise not to laugh. This lady is an intellectual of the left and is writing this book review in a highly acclaimed site, meant as "A sinister cabal of Superior Writers." So please overlook her mistakes in writing and logic.

Linker has a unique perspective as the former editor of First Things, the journal of the theocons. He believes that Americans should be scared enough by this small conservative movement to keep an eye and a check on how far religion is allowed to go in consulting with federal government.

The argument is compelling. We are dealing with an administration that brought in faith based initiatives, faith based counseling, and that involved itself in the Terry Schiavo rigt-to-die case. It is also a proponent of "intelligent design", has passed (or attempted) pro-life legislation, is against gay marriage, and continues to fund and fight a moral global war against terror............

In the beginning...a thread posted by NYer. Thanks, narses, for the ping.

How can something be both immense and minute at the same time, something upon which all of human history depends, yet fragile and almost non-existent to the eye? It is the union of an egg and sperm — an embryo. Such is God's way. He takes something smaller than a mustard seed and brings forth all of civilization. After creating everything in the universe single-handedly, He created us in his own image and bestowed upon us the power to become co-creators with Him. Working in union with us, when the sperm unites with the egg, not only has a new human life been set in motion, but so too has a spiritual life. God places an everlasting soul into the being of every son and daughter.

Most of us rarely think that deeply about it all. In our worldly way, we forget eternity and begin to affix costs — physical, emotional and monetary. The costs can seem exorbitant when we focus only through the eyes of the world. And looking through those same worldly eyes, the way to prevent the miracle we clearly do not recognize as such is so easy, inexpensive, and ironically, also so small — the birth control pill. But the pill does not just prevent the miracle, it also destroys it, a fact that is often surprising to committed pro-lifers. This fact is true for all contraception that works through manipulation of hormone levels........

Cutting through the fog of state sponsored killing, an Oregon case in the thread by wagglebee...

WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 /Christian Newswire/ -- The case of an Oregon man who allegedly shot his ALS-afflicted wife in the head at her request exposes major problems with the philosophy behind assisted suicide, said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.

"The so-called 'right' to end one's suffering by ending one's life is on a collision course with itself," Fr. Pavone said. "People will claim that restrictions or delays in exercising this 'right' only increase their suffering and therefore their right to end it."...........

A peek behind the curtain shows reveals even more barbarity in the industry of killing innocents. Thread from don-o. Thanks, wagglebee, for the ping.

...........“What’s going on in there to make these babies so stressed?” Anand wondered. Breaking with hospital practice, he wrangled permission to follow his patients into the O.R. “That’s when I discovered that the babies were not getting anesthesia,” he recalled recently. Infants undergoing major surgery were receiving only a paralytic to keep them still.

snip

And it matters, of course, for the practice of abortion. Over the past four years, anti-abortion groups have turned fetal pain into a new front in their battle to restrict or ban abortion. Anti-abortion politicians have drafted laws requiring doctors to tell patients seeking abortions that a fetus can feel pain and to offer the fetus anesthesia; such legislation has already passed in five states.............

They put a staffer named Blaine on the phone and we spoke for 12 minutes. He stated emphatically that the Gov will not step in in the Lauren Richardson case and that she has complete faith in the system. There is a separation of powers and it's in place for a reason. The decision rest in the hands of the court & the judge. blah, blah, blah... Then he stated that Gov Minner will follow the law. I asked him what about the law, Do Not Murder; he continued on the path that she, the Gov cannot step in. After telling him that she, being the Gov, of course can step in and I asked him if he would correct his statement to say that she WON'T step in.

That led us to his next point of where do you draw the line? If the Gov steps in in one case, where do you draw the line? How about drawing the line when it comes to murdering an innocent woman by starvation, I posed to him. Blaine continued to hold fast to his argument and after several more minutes, his closing statement was, "She'll do what's right in her eyes and for her constituents." I made sure that he understood that "right in her eyes" does not make it truly right and that there is a standard. And, long after this case has passed from the public eye, Gov Minner will have to relive it in her her mind's eye, and that she will stand before the only Judge that matters. I asked Blaine to please tell Gov Minner that if she does nothing, Lauren Richardson's blood will be on her hands.

He who has ears to hear...

Olympia...

"It's the water..."

............................................

Olympia, WA (LifeNews.com) -- A lawsuit euthanasia opponents have filed will prevent backers of a statewide initiative making the state the second to legalize assisted suicide from gathering signatures to put it on the November ballot. Opponents say the wording of the ballot proposal is misleading and doesn't give voters complete information.

Under the measure, Washington residents who have less than six months to live would be able to ask a doctor for a prescription for lethal drugs to kill themselves.

~Snip~

Ironically, just months ago Gardner underwent deep brain surgery for Parkinson's Disease, which could possibly be used to help incapacitated patients like Terri Schiavo.

Bioethics watchdog Wesley J. Smith says the former governor is ignoring the dangers and problems associated with allowing doctors to have a role in killing their patients.

"The potential for--and abuses that are actually happening--from legalized assisted suicide are well documented," Smith says.

"But advocates like Gardner willfully ignore that part of the story. Bluntly stated, they want what they want for themselves and don't care who gets hurt," he adds...........................

The McCain Scrutiny...

Mor on McCain and enAble...Not really a Loving Will, so should we believe Lonesome George on anything?

Over the past few years, Mr. Will has opposed, among other things, the death penalty, efforts to continue feeding Terri Schiavo in 2005 and a federal anti-gay marriage amendment.....

Good news!

Thread by wagglebee.

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The nation’s largest abortion business has closed facilities in five states, including two locations in Illinois, one and Idaho and merging two in Kentucky. The abortion business claims the closures are the result of a lack of funding in the way of taxpayer dollars, even though the business maintains millions in the bank and makes money on an annual basis.

According to STOPP International, a watchdog group, Planned Parenthood closed an express clinic in Nampa, Idaho, an express clinic in Naperville, Illinois, and a non-express clinic in Lincoln, Illinois................

Susan should call Blaine back and tell him that Gov. Minner will end up like Jeb Bush, once beloved, now despised and a he's a guy on the sidelines because he didn't save Terri Schiavo. Jeb's known as a coward and a puppet of the republican machine. (and, the RNC's in trouble now - wonder why...)

Her political ambitions will be over as well as her good name if she puts her head in the sand.

Minner the beginner at this right to life issue will become Delaware's Wicked Witch of the East. We can photoshop her into a witch's costume in no time flat. Killing people is evil and if Minner wants to be Minner the death cultist, she's on her way.

She's not showing leadership either. She's risking being tied to the Bushes by ignoring Lauren. Minner-Bush. Bush-Minner. Disabled people and their advocates VOTE.

After the whole world watched the courts mandate

The courts mandated nothing. They ruled that Michael Schiavo was the next of kin with the authority to make that decision, and not the parents. I don't want to wade into the endless arguments over that decision, but let's be accurate about it.

Cases like this happen in hospitals all over the country every day. If there is a living will, a power of attorney, or if all the family members are in agreement, there is no legal issue and they don't make the papers.

"(Mom) Towers claims Lauren would never have wanted to live as a permanently disabled person"

So, that's an excuse for murder now? Does Mom know how many Americans are permanently disabled? It does not mean they are SENT TO THE GALLOWS.

Terri had a civil right to live. Civil Right and religious right. Huffington shows what a lunatic she is again. Further, who’s obsessed about Terri? It’s the lunatic socialist/marxists. We’re just trying to counter the death care system. It’s not the health care system fo sure.

Jeb is a has been.

He was term-limited out of office, and left office with a 58% approval rating. Trying to make it sound as if the Schiavo case ended his career is a nice rhetorical flourish, but it just ain't so,

In fact, I'll take issue with the notion that Jeb is a has-been. He might have been a presidential candidate this year, but for the fact that the electorate is sick of Bushes. He would be a strong Senate candidate.
