You should have heard the woman on Mark Levin today talking about all this.
I don’t know who she was but what she had to say was beyond scary.
Soon they won’t need to.
counselors = jobs

“...theyll ask you if youve ever considered suicide...”
And if your answer is no, they’ll call you a selfish SOB for breathing the air that those who are not on SS are entitled to.
With this imposter in the WH we are worse off than the Europeans that we so often make fun of. I think that the first to die should be those who voted for him.
Nope, won’t take away my firearms. Might take them off me.
>>>I do think we dont fight a battle well with untruths.<<<
Hmmm, do you suppose they are going to give you a pep talk?
Way to go - hang in there - I’ll be back to see you in 5 years.
DON’T THINK SO! Do you???
More like - ‘I don’t want to come back in 5 years and see you still here.’ Take it any way you want - that is the message.
Our God has warned us for the last 50 years about these clowns but we have ignored Him and have been busy to remove Him from our society and replace Him with allah. God can only help those who help themselves.
OMG people go listen to McCaughey Interview
It’s even worse then we thought!
Isn’t she the one who first noticed where this was headed and reported via Bloomberg?
(B) An advance care planning consultation with respect to an individual may be conducted more frequently than provided under paragraph (1) if there is a significant change in the health condition of the individual, including diagnosis of a chronic, progressive, life-limiting disease, a life-threatening or terminal diagnosis or life-threatening injury, or upon admission to a skilled nursing facility, a long-term care facility (as defined by the Secretary), or a hospice program.Yeah, that's how I want to spend my dying days. Meeting with bureaucrats however frequently they want, to see if I might be enticed to sign a "life-sustaining care" order. Oh wait, the order doesn't have to be signed by me after all:
For purposes of this section, the term order regarding life sustaining treatment means, with respect to an individual, an actionable medical order relating to the treatment of that individual that (i) is signed and dated by a physician...or another health care professional (as specified by the Secretary)So presumably the same bureaucrats who determine how much drugs I get dispensed and when will be responsible for "effectively communicat[ing]" my "preferences regarding life-sustaining treatment".
Refusing “the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration” is suicide. Denying it is murder.
No problem. The night shift janitor can help you with your decision.
This time it will be tested in the "relocation vans" for registered sex offenders.
And *nobody* (including FReepers) will complain until the precedent, established and assented (by the FReepers & co) expands to include them.
The more we learn the more it is comparable to Hitler's regime.
Comparable? It's here already. This country's public has aloready sold its birthright for a mess (promise) of pottage (illusory safety), FReepers and all.
We may reap what they have sown -- just pray we don't.
Isnt she the one who first noticed where this was headed and reported via Bloomberg?
She really hurt Clintons health care bill — she found most of the horror stories (the affirmative action brain surgeons in the bill were my favorite, as I remember it the bill wanted Eskimos). I think she was working for Manhatten something think tank then.
ping health care plan
Every attempt to make Congress Commies bendover and take Zerocare for THEIR healthcare has been defeated so far in committees. I doubt the amendment to force Congress to belly up to the assisted suicide bar (along with the other measures of ZEROCARE) will see the light of day before the full House and the full Senate.
But ZERO is determined to ram this through Congress without giving Americans time to digest it and discuss it.
God help us!
“Refusing the use of artificially administered nutrition and hydration is suicide.”
I believe no less than the Catholic Church would argue with you on that point, for what it is worth.
