Yes, McCain admitted he knows not much about economics and he made again a fool of himself - this time in Iraq - revealing he also knows not much about Iran and his buddy Lieberman had to correct him.

Three years ago today, from the archives of the L.A. Times...

Over the course of a nerve-racking day, the leaders of two congressional committees summoned Schiavo, who doctors say is in a persistent vegetative state, to appear before lawmakers, an extraordinary attempt to stall the cutting-off of her food supply. A House lawyer flew to Florida to intervene in her case, only to be dismissed by a county judge who refused to retreat from his order to end Schiavo's life. Invective mounted, with Democrats denouncing the legal moves and religious leaders fuming at the judge.

A House panel issued subpoenas to Schiavo, her husband and medical personnel. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) said they and other GOP leaders would work over the weekend to smooth out conflicts between the Senate and House bills that would allow federal courts to intervene in the Schiavo case....

Schiavo Taken Off Food Supply; Congress tries to stop the process with subpoenas, but a judge presses ahead with his order. In Florida and the capital, the rhetoric heats up.

More from that day...

Note in the second link, the many other stories of three years ago.

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

NEW YORK — Ten years ago, Christian Dwyer was in a car accident and doctors predicted he would spend the rest of his life in a persistent vegetative state — the same condition some doctors believe Terri Schiavo to be in.

Today, Dwyer is alive and well. Although confined to a wheelchair and afflicted with some permanent physical damage, he speaks clearly about his experience and his opposition to what is happening to Schiavo.

Doctors say that Schiavo (), the 41-year-old woman who’s feeding tube was removed Friday, is in a persistent vegetative state, from which no one has ever recovered.

Others, such as Terri’s parents and a group of 30 doctors and nurses who have signed affidavits testifying as much, say she is not in such a state, and that there is a chance for recovery.

Dwyer has good reason to think Schiavo has a chance.

After five weeks in a “life-and-death situation” and three months in a coma, his doctors predicted that if he did survive, it would be as a vegetable.....

What a creepy duo - McCain and Crist. I would not be surprised if McCain imploded before the Nov. elections. I watched him on TV and he appeared drained of energy, ill, and/or medicated.

Oregon, my alma mater, where have you gone??

Thread by wagglebee on the killing fields on the Willamette.

Salem OR (LifeNews.com) -- Oregon officials have released their tenth statewide report on the status of assisted suicide there and it found the number of people who died is on the rise. The report also showed the number of people getting drugs to use in taking their own lives is increasing as well.

More people received lethal drugs from doctors to kill themselves than any previous year under the state's first-in-the-nation law legalizing assisted suicide....

Of course what these "physicians" find most abhorrent is the FACT that many people do recover from conditions far worse than Terri's.

Terri Schiavo. Conservatives put her family through hell before honoring her husband’s request to remove life support. Blinded by faith, conservatives cast aside honored principles of small government and states’ rights.

So that's the new talking point? I suppose the Schindlers were all supportive of Mikey's desire to murder Terri until pro-life conservatives came along and brain washed them.

Concepts to liberals are like fantasies to the rest of us, like dreams we all have, where anything can happen. They live their sad lives thinking their dreams are reality.

Rush reported that a rep. of McCain admitted that he sees the Religious Right as a serious problem. McCain lies so much that one cannot believe anything he says. The few things he has been consisted on include amnesty to illegal aliens and admitting terrorists to this country.

The Obama Nation of Communism...

More than a mere leftist wart, he may be a commie mole.

Bad enough that Hussain is cozy with Islamists. We knew he loved the joys of socialism, but how close was he to hard core communism? More than Hillary? The Canadian Free Press takes a hard look and just might find a commie under the bed.

Alan Keyes was one of the very few who called him out, but fellow travelers in the media would ensure that went nowhere. It is a longer read than most, but full of detail, some surprising to many. They find evidence of his connections in part on his take about Terri.

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

In his biography of Barack Obama, David Mendell writes about Obama’s life as a “secret smoker” and how he “went to great lengths to conceal the habit.” But what about Obama’s secret political life? It turns out that Obama’s childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a communist.

In his books, Obama admits attending “socialist conferences” and coming into contact with Marxist literature. But he ridicules the charge of being a “hard-core academic Marxist,” which was made by his colorful and outspoken 2004 U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Alan Keyes.

~Snip~

BARACK OBAMA DISPLAYED HIS BIZARRE VIEWS ON FOREIGN AND domestic policy during the February 26 Democratic presidential debate but nobody in the media seemed to notice. This is a candidate who is pitifully ignorant on some of the major issues facing our nation. First, Obama showed ignorance of what led to the crisis in Kosovo, and he seemed to advocate some kind of U.S. military response through NATO. If a President Obama carried through on such a threat, it would be a foreign policy mistake of monumental proportions. It could lead to a war with Russia. Second, Obama didn’t seem to understand that in the case of the disabled woman, Terri Schiavo, the issue was about giving her the same kind of due process rights that are guaranteed to death row killers. We now know where Obama really stands, and it is not a pretty picture......

Is Barack Obama A Marxist Mole?

Remember three years ago today? That was the day Bo Gritz, the decorated Green Beret of Ruby Ridge fame let the charge, stepped up to be arrested. Meanwhile, Pat Mahoney still held hope that Jeb Bush would come to the rescue...

From the NYT or NYET or whatever, an excerpt:

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

PINELLAS PARK, Fla., March 19 - The morning after Terri Schiavo's feeding tube was removed, lawyers for her parents sought new avenues to keep her alive and protesters were arrested trying to deliver bread and water to the door of the hospice where Ms. Schiavo, a critically brain-damaged woman who a judge has ruled would not want life-prolonging measures, lay in bed.

Just before 11 a.m. on Saturday, three men were taken into custody when they tried to force their way past officers guarding the driveway of Woodside Hospice to take bread and water to Ms. Schiavo as a symbolic gesture.

The three - led by James Gritz, a former Green Beret commander from Nevada known as Bo - were arrested on misdemeanor trespassing charges, police officials said. About 30 people prayed outside the hospice on Saturday morning and waved signs reading "Stop Renegade Judges" and "Colorado Loves Terri." Others stood in circles reciting the Lord's Prayer. Passers-by looked on, drinking coffee................

What a difference a day makes, twenty four little hours...

On one side of the line, Killer Tiller is lauded, heralded as a hero of woman's right to choose, champion of the Constitution. On the other side of the line just hours away, yet to be crossed, he would be reviled in history as a gory butcher of little children, compared to Hitler and the worst of the monsters of the death camps.

I marvel at the sick ability of liberals to juxtapose these opposites without problem. Perhaps it is why we call liberalism a mental disease.

Thread by wagglebee.

ARLINGTON, VA, March 19, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Notorious partial-birth abortion specialist Dr. George Tiller of Wichita, KS, was caught on hidden video admitting to aborting babies a day before the mother's due date. Students for Life of America (SFLA) today released the video which was made at the Feminist Majority Foundation's annual Women's Leadership Conference held at the National Education Association (NEA) on March 9.

The video reveals Dr. Tiller showcasing massive and graphic pictures of children with fetal abnormalities that he had aborted, so as to make the case for late-term abortions as necessary medical procedure. SFLA's Executive Director Kristan Hawkins, who videotaped the conference and interviewed Tiller clandestinely, commented on the gruesome pictures of aborted children Tiller showed, saying, "One had an extra arm: could not that child had survived and received corrective surgery? Was violently killing the child the only way to go?".............

Mr. Schiavo, appearing on "Today" on NBC, said members of Congress were trying to intrude into his personal life with last-minute maneuvers, which included issuing subpoenas for the Schiavos to appear before Congress and trying to move the case into federal court.

I am unaware of ANYONE EVER blatantly ignoring a Congressional subpoena and not facing serious consequences.

I always felt that the quickest way to stop the murder would have been for Congress to send federal marshalls to enforce the subpoenas.

I think this is why Obama and Hillary dislike each other so much. He is a communist in the classical Marxist mold while she is more of a Stalinist.

He would be well advised to read up on the fate of Trotsky and watch his back.

This poor woman died. From what I have seen, she became horrible to see, but I muster effort to grasp whether she was worse off than many of faith who bravely smiled through far worse afflictions knowing the world they may one day reach was better than this one if they were in Our Lord's hands.

From what we learn, she suffered agonizingly, not from her affliction, but from her distance from Our Lord. In another thread a poster commented she was in a living hell and now it is over. What an irony for those of faith! It is as if she were willing to trade her temporary hell on earth for a chance at an eternal hell. What does one face afterwards if one has violated the Word of Our Lord? Indeed now she knows for sure and we can only guess.

Thread by kiriath_jearim. Thanks to TheSarce and LilAngel for the ping.

A severely disfigured French woman was found dead at her home Wednesday, a local prosecutor said, only two days after a court rejected her request for the right to die, in a case that has stirred much emotion in France.

The high court in Dijon, eastern France, decided Monday to side with the prosecution which argued that current legislation does not allow the doctor of 52-year-old former schoolteacher Chantal Sebire to prescribe lethal drugs...........

Phooey! It is back to the three Marx brothers, Grouchy, Harpie, and Karl. The argument over embryonic stem cell playing transcends logic handily since the value lies not in scientific potential, but in the ability of libs to play with human life. Now, we can expect any of the Marx brothers to play in the human life sandbox.

Thread by NormsRevenge. Thanks, narses, for the ping.

Hundreds of embryonic stem-cell lines that provide hope for treating devastating disorders such as sickle cell anemia and Down syndrome are available for research but are off-limits to federal scientists because of White House restrictions, scientists said Wednesday.

The three presidential candidates - Republican John McCain and Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama - all support expanded federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research. Their actions would lift a restriction imposed by President Bush in 2001 that limits federally funded research to fewer than two dozen embryonic stem cell lines..........

You hit onto something profound most would miss. Yes, Bronstein aka Trotsky was much more purist and history shows that the ideology married with a lust for power wins over plain old ideology. Hill will freeze over before BO wins and he will have Hill to pay.
