TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A state appeals court has refused to block the expected removal of Terri Schiavo's feeding tube on Friday.
God's law is the Law of Laws (The Lex [lat.] Nom [gr.]).
Look, full disclosure, okay? I disagree with the majority of y'all about this whole thing and the way you're doing business.
HOWEVER, it's obvious how passionate and concerned you all are nonetheless. I was just offering a warning to those who don't apparently know how offside Gritz's minions can be.
SHEESH! How paranoid ARE you guys?
Why are you asking? Only a member of the "Kill Terri" conspiracy would ask that! (Goes back to eating Y2K survival rations and cleaning guns.)
BTW, that was sarcasm.
Care to share where?
Michael's word, judging by his character as deduced from his actions and police reports, cannot be trusted.
Many courts have looked directly at this issue and disagree with you. That is your problem. I frankly don't know whether "Michael's word ... can be trusted" or not, but I know that courts have exhaustively looked directly at that issue and have (apparently) decided that the evidence is not strong enough to overturn the presumption that the husband will act in the best interests of his wife. I accept that.
I care that an innocent woman is going to be starved to death.
No, she can pick up a spoon and eat whenever she wishes (and is able). What has been decided is that the husband can decide that no extraordinary means may be used to force feed her to keep her (in some very limited sense) "alive."
As one whose wife died 18 months ago from cancer amid great suffering, I am grateful for that deference being enshrined in the principles of our law. My wife told me what she wanted; she never wrote it down (because she was too sick to do so). I executed her wishes because I loved her so. I would not have wanted anyone (or group of well-meaning 'anyones') to come in and put her through more agony of chemotherapy when she wanted to go Home to be with her Lord.
Folks, too many here have lost sight of the situation and, most of all, that the critical decision is who should make that decision. The courts, after hearing almost endless, heartrending testimony have decided the husband should. I accept that.
Wow, you found ONE quote of his where he sounds sane.
Do you have something against a long affidavit by someone who has nothing to gain by telling the truth? Terri is been in solitary confinement for some 13 years now. Surly the lenght of that post pales in comparison. My apolgies if you think otherwise.
Actually, that quote is from his comments about the Terri Schiavo case on his website. Further down the page are reccomendations on how to help Terri Schiavo survive. None mention gouging, biting, bullets, handguns, M60's, Ak's, knives, fists or other assorted sundries one uses in a hostile takeover.
The thread is about Terri Schiavo, not Bo Gritz.
You are incorrect in this statement. Judge Greer has ruled that she is to be starved- no food or water is allowed. Now you tell me how that is humane.
If you take him, you WILL get his lice along with him. How much good will that do you?
Or is the publicity worth even THAT?

Since this argument is not new, I suspect that some court along the way has had the opportunity to find such uses to be "misappropriation" and declined to do so. Is it possible that it wasn't misappropriation?
That's not a threat; that's what happens when people get violent, nobody wants to be associated with them.
I'm not even gonna be anywhere NEAR the state of Florida. I'm just explaining to you what the press, the cops, and the courts are going to do if there is ANY trouble there.
Do you think they'd ignore it?
Look, you want to talk about the Schiavo case, I'm all ears. You want to talk about Gritz, go somewhere else.
You are the one preaching violence by supposing it will
You are creating the element of hyteria.
"My cause"? Me? Try millions of others.
I take it that you would not want to be associated with our founding fathers then either, correct?
If these folks can't distinguish between a warning and a threat, well, let them HAVE the Gritz blitzkrieg.
I tried, and I was being as honest as possible.
