In their fantasies about us meanies, they just can't stray too far from reminding us of that aggravation of Terri's Legacy to whatever consists of their souls.
A leftie just can't go wrong quoting Friedrich Nietzsche to make himself sound smart at least to other libs. It reminds me of the observation about the old cadaver's quote.
Friedrich Nietzsche, "God is dead."
God, "Friedrich Nietzsche is dead."
It may not have sounded so cute, but perhaps more useful if he had followed a more modern day philosophy of Rodney King.
The German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, adopted a specific word for an emotional side effect of suppressed aspirations: ressentiment.
The slave revolt in morality begins when the ressentiment itself becomes creative and gives birth to values: the ressentiment of those beings who are prevented from a genuine reaction, that is, something active, and who compensate for that with a merely imaginary vengeance.* While all noble morality grows out of a triumphant affirmation of one's own self, slave morality from the start says "No" to what is "outside," "other," to "a not itself." And this "No" is its creative act. This transformation of the glance which confers value -- this necessary projection towards what is outer instead of back onto itself -- that is inherent in ressentiment. In order to arise, slave morality always requires first an opposing world, a world outside itself. Psychologically speaking, it needs external stimuli in order to act at all -- its action is basically reaction. The Geneaology of Morals, 1st essay, sec. 10
Remarkably, however, the assembly line at the ressentiment factory begins to stutter. Demystified as political theater by antics like the Terry Schiavo affair and confronted by the growing realization that every one every where knows at least one quite decent person who happens to be homosexual and one extended family member in need of an abortion, the social agenda of Karl Rove evangelism loses traction...........
.- The brother and sister of Terri Schiavo are launching a radio show called “America’s Lifeline” to address and educate Americans about health care, end-of-life issues and the disabled. The show will make its debut on March 15 and will be hosted by The Healthcare Advocate, Carry Hall.
The weekly hour-long program, which is being sponsored by "Terri's Foundation", will originate from the studios of Talk Radio 860 WGUL in Tampa, FL and also be broadcast on the internet at http://860wgul.townhall.com/.
Planned topics for the show include discussion of the national healthcare situation, care for the disabled, euthanasia, doctor assisted suicide and controversial end-of-life cases.
Cary Hall, who will host the show, is also the host of a successful radio show called The Health Insurance Advocate which broadcasts from Talk Radio 710 KCMO in Kansas City, Missouri and also on Talk Radio1330 KNSS in Wichita, Kansas. Bobby Schindler and Suzanne Vitadamo, who both direct the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, will co-host the program with Hall.
"America's Lifeline is something we've wanted to do for some time, and with Cary Hall's health care expertise, and my family's experience trying to save Terri and now running her foundation which works to save those like Terri, we'll be able to educate Americans and raise awareness about the euthanasia movement like never before", said Suzanne Vitadamo.
The premiere of America's Lifeline is set for 3 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 15, 2008. The program is poised to expand into other Florida radio markets including Orlando and Miami.
