Anna Mae Blessing told cops she had been stewing for days over her son's decision to kick her out and "believed he ruined" her life.

I understand why he felt that it was best to put her in a home.

and it was self defense.

You really think that could possibly have been self-defense?

Well, now there's nowhere to go but up.

Let me tell you about old people, especially very old people. They don’t give a $hit about what the law would do to them. In this case the lady is 92, she knows she will never spend a day in prison and probably not even the inside of a court room.

Although she sounded very coherent and rational and the act was definitely premeditated I suppose it could have been the early stages of the disease.

Really easy to SAY...unless you have an elderly parent with dementia that you are taking care of 24/7!


Thank you. It means no life of your own and living with insanity all the time until you go nuts youself. I’m just about to start having 1 day off a week because it’s just too hard as they decline.

I can’t comprehend mooching off someone like that, especially immediate family.

At times, I’ve been broke, no real place to live, and borderline suicidal but I found a way to pick up and keep going.

Agree, It is sad. I stay away. We take her out to dinner if my wife is able to walk at all.

Maybe he wanted to put her in a nursing home because she can’t take care of herself any more? Sometimes, it is better for aged parents to have that extra level of care.

My parents are in good health and they have a few immediate family members and many friends.

I’m glad since I live a bit of distance from them.

Sane and deadly or crazy and deadly. It's a horse apiece.

And here’s is where feelings could easily run high about the situation, and descend into a blamefest.

The feminazi’s would just say this was a late term abortion, so it’s okay.
