Let Lauren Live!

LAUREN RICHARDSON - YOU CAN HELP!
By Judie Brown

It has been a source of ongoing sadness to read of the difficulties Lauren Richardson’s father has had over the course of the past several months. For those of you who are not familiar with her case, Lauren overdosed on heroin on August 28, 2006. She suffered oxygen deprivation and, as a result of the overdose, is now in a coma and unable to speak out for herself. At the time of the overdose, Lauren was expecting a baby. Her parents honored what they knew would have been her wish and did all they could to keep her healthy and comfortable until the child was born. Today, though Lauren may not be aware of it, she is the mother of Ember Grace, who was born in February 2007.

Since the birth of her daughter, Lauren remains unable to speak of her concerns, but she has a loving father who is doing all he can to protect her from suffering the same fate as Terri Schiavo. However, Lauren’s mother, who has been named her legal guardian, is sadly not of the same opinion and is working with attorneys to pressure the courts to permit Lauren’s starvation.

Lauren’s father has kept hope alive, even at times when there appeared to be no hope in human terms. Lauren’s father is a man of hope in Christ and is dedicated to spending every breath he has on defending Lauren, regardless of what it might cost him in physical exhaustion and worldly goods. The most recent update for those concerned about Lauren tells us the following:

We struggle at times as we seek to share with the public the details of what is happening with Lauren because of the disagreement we have with Lauren’s mother. We cannot understand her reasoning in refusing a path of hope, healing and restoration for Lauren and insisting on causing her death by withholding food and water from her. The issue in Lauren’s case is the eternal truth that all people, no matter what their medical condition, bear the image of God and deserve basic care and an opportunity to be restored to health.

Bobby Schindler, Terri Schiavo’s brother, has written about Lauren in an editorial earlier this year, "False Compassion," and is working closely with Lauren’s father in order to provide expertise that he is uniquely qualified to share during a trying time like this.

There are many links on the Life for Lauren web site that will assist you in tracking this case and learning who is supporting Lauren’s ongoing care and who is opposing it. More importantly, there is something you can do to express your concerns.

ACTION NEEDED NOW

The governor of Delaware, Ruth Ann Minner, is being asked by pro-life Americans across this nation to intervene in this case in order to save Lauren from what many fear is an imminent court order dictating that Lauren be starved and dehydrated to death. I am asking you to be one of those who communicates your passionate belief that Lauren’s life is sacred and deserves to be protected from those who would order her death. The governor’s e-mail address is governor.minner@state.de.us.

Further, it would mean a great deal to Lauren’s father, Randy, if you sent him a copy of your e-mail to Governor Ruth Ann Minner. Randy’s e-mail address is Lifeforlauren@aol.com

During a recent visit to Anchorage, Alaska where Bobby Schindler was invited to speak, he told a reporter from The Catholic Anchor, "Once we accept that killing is an acceptable answer to human suffering, we lose any type of parameters. Euthanasia is a form of abandonment. It is not compassion."

Truer words were never spoken. As I frequently tell people who argue that we pro-lifers are being heartless and cruel for fighting to defend the rights of a "hopeless case," "God is the author of every human being’s life, and He has never given permission to a single one of us to arbitrarily rob another human being of life for any reason including disability or illness."

As Flannery O’Connor once wrote on the subject of false compassion, "In the absence of faith, we govern by tenderness. And tenderness leads to the gas chamber."

Lauren Richardson is not terminal – she is severely disabled. Lauren Richardson should not be murdered.

CHARLESTON, West Virginia, May 27, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A Virginia family was shocked but relieved when their mother, Val Thomas, woke up after doctors said she was dead. 59 year-old Mrs. Thomas, while being kept breathing artificially, had no detectable brain waves for more than 17 hours. The family were discussing organ donation options for their mother when she suddenly woke up and started speaking to nurses. Ethicists have strongly criticised developments in organ donation criteria that would have made Mrs. Thomas a candidate for having her organs removed before she woke up.

At 1:30 am Saturday May 17, Mrs. Thomas' heart had stopped beating and she had no pulse when the family called paramedics. She was without a heartbeat or oxygen for 15 to 20 minutes before being put on a ventilator and transported to a Charleston, West Virginia hospital.

An attempt was made to lower her body temperature but her heart stopped three times causing doctors to estimate that her chance of survival was less than 10 per cent. The ventilator was kept running for nearly 18 hours and rigor mortis had set in while Mrs. Thomas' family considered organ donation. The decision was taken to discontinue life support but ten minutes into the process, Mrs. Thomas moved her arm and began speaking to nurses..........

On the other end of the scale from the Governor of Alaska, and my post upthread today, we have this one who consorts with a vile serial killer, none other than notorious Tiller the Killer, and appears to embrace the concept.

Topeka, KS (LifeNews.com) -- Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius is getting flack from a pro-life group for supposedly holding a secret party at the governor's mansion with an infamous late-term abortion practitioner. Sebelius reportedly invited George Tiller and his abortion center staff for a party at Cedar Crest, the governor's mansion....

Wow! We have a candidate who believes as we do, and a FReeper at that! God bless her and may our prayers aid her on her way to success!

Thread by 2nd amendment mama with thanks for the ping to Sun. South Carolina would be blessed with such a candidate.

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

The one candidate that really stands out to me out of the three, however, is Katherine Jenerette. A history professor, mother of four, and a second lieutenant in the army reserves, I think Mrs. Jenerette is the total package that disgruntled conservatives and others disoriented with the Republican Party are looking for. Read and learn:

She said she decided to run for Congress partly out of frustration of how Republicans squandered their congressional majorities.

“We had the playing field, and we fumbled,” she said. “We spent like drunken sailors. We left the party platform behind.”

Jenerette said she favors a federal hiring freeze and the Fair Tax, a plan to eliminate the income tax by significantly raising the sales tax. She said her service in the U.S. Army Reserve would make her an important voice on national security issues.

As for the Iraq war, she said, “We can sit here and be Monday morning quarterbacks. We’re there because of our national interests. We’re there because of oil. What angers me is how we’ve made it into a political football.” She said she supports U.S. Gen. David Petraeus in Iraq and would pounce on his critics.

Jenerette said education is a big issue with her, and she would push to abolish the federal No Child Left Behind Act. “It’s created a nightmare bureaucracy for our schools.”

With grim outlook for this fall as only chumps appear as candidates, as states look more like Zimbabwe than parts of our Republic, we may take cheer that key battles are won for our side and by remembering always, the sun of God is always behind the darkest of clouds. Progress is marked in Colorado.

While on the same link as above, check out how a really effective protest can work. It is the article just above.

May 28, 2008 Joris Brinkerhoff planned to treat Planned Parenthood contributors to an evening of good food, good drink, and good music in hopes of raising big bucks for the abortion industry. Joris owns a 5 million dollar home that backs up to the elite Denver Country Club. The setting was beautiful, the night was gorgeous and the pro lifers were magnificent.

Attendees were greeted outside the entrance to the mansion by a bloody abortion doctor wielding broken and bloodied dolls while he thanked them for their help to kill the babies. " It's a big job, I can't do it all by myself, he chided. Thanks for your help." Next they had to drive through an archway that read "Baby Killers". They were stunned to say the least. Some drove by the entrance, but faithful pro lifers directed them back to the "Baby Killers" gate. If by chance they made it around to the back entrance they were met with another incredible street scene including a huge truth truck, protesters holding graphic signs and sidewalk art.......

A 5 MILLION DOLLAR PROTEST!!

Close call in Oklahoma for another Terri...

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

NORMAN, Okla. Terri McHugh calls her husband Mike her hero.

That’s not surprising — because Mike saved the life of his 52-year-old wife one cold evening last December.

Terri told the riveting story last Thursday on the couple’s 27th wedding anniversary. Mike provided notes from his recollections in an e-mail he wrote in January detailing the events of that evening.

Mike and Terri were packing Dec. 21, 2007, for a long-awaited Christmas vacation and sat down for a dinner of hamburgers with his son David and David’s girlfriend Sheena, who were going to house-sit for them while they were traveling. Mike works for Halliburton and had been on-call for the past seven Christmases, so it was a highly anticipated vacation.

Suddenly, Sheena called out for Mike that something was wrong with Terri, in a voice that let everyone know that she wasn’t kidding.

Terri was leaning back in her chair as if she were looking at the ceiling, suddenly passed out cold...................

~Snip~

But she survived, with no brain damage. That was especially gratifying after she and Mike realized that sudden cardiac death was what caused Terri Schiavo’s brain damage. Schiavo’s case garnered national attention when her husband fought to have her life support terminated in 2005, after an extended court fight with her parents.

California dreaming...

Thread by wagglebee on the latest perceived victory of death over life in that place once known as an American State.

SACRAMENTO, May 29, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An assisted-suicide bill that allows doctors and nurses to suggest death by unconscious dehydration has barely passed the California State Assembly.

AB 2747 would authorize total sedation without nutrition and hydration for depressed and confused patients, whether or not their natural death was imminent. The bill would also allow family members to order the death of a mentally disabled person when a nurse opines they have less than a year to live, similar to Terry Schindler Schiavo's death at the hands of her husband..........

We posted yesterday on the Kansas Governor and her affection for the serial killer, Tiller. More follows in a thread by wagglebee.

WICHITA, KS, May 29, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In early April, 2007, late-term abortionist George R. Tiller and his entire abortion clinic staff was honored by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius at a lavish secret party held at Cedar Crest, the Governor’s mansion. In response to photographs published by Operation Rescue this week, Gov. Sebelius’ office has released what Operation Rescue is calling a “laughable” defense, saying that the Tiller party depicted in the photographs was a prize in a charity auction in which Sebelius had no control over who would attend.

OR obtained the set of 27 photographs from a confidential source that told OR the party was held exclusively in Tiller’s honor. Tiller and his staff were the only guests invited to the gala event that featured, according to the source, a menu of steak and lobster....

Wagglebee has a thread on the Colorado Personhood Amendment news which is published in LifeNews...

Denver, CO (LifeNews.com) -- A constitutional amendment that would define unborn children as persons under law and could lead to a major abortion battle will appear on the November ballot. The Colorado Secretary of State's office notified leaders of Colorado for Equal Rights that enough valid signatures were submitted to qualify it.

The measure would define unborn children as persons under state law from the moment of fertilization and it could set off a statewide battle over abortion, embryonic stem cell research and other practices that kill people before birth.

The pro-life group submitted almost twice as many signatures as necessary.........

And speaking of Governor Palin of Alaska, are we ready to ponder this? Thread by OnRightOnLeftCoast with thanks to narses for the ping.

Via the Standard, Wizbang’s got a hot tip that the head of McCain’s VP search team is on the ground in Juneau. If it’s true, though, then why not advertise that fact? It’d kick up some buzz … although maybe that’s the problem. If they finally end up going with some more predictable choice, like Ridge or Mitt, it’ll feel like a letdown....

We have seen our share of doubters, that life or death in a hospital is purely ethical and decisions are made on ethics, not dollars. We might be entitled to our fifteen minutes of fame, but nineteen years of life just may cost a bit depending on our dollar value. Andy Warhol proved it.

Thanks, Leslie, for the tip to this article by Professor Pope.

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

Tuesday is the 40th anniversary of the attempted assassination of Any Warhol. On June 3, 1968, Valerie Solanas strode into the Factory, in Manhattan, and shot Warhol three times in the chest and belly with a 32-caliber pistol. Thirty minutes later, Warhol arrived by ambulance at the emergency room of Columbus Hospital.

Interestingly, at the hospital, Warhol was pronounced "clinically dead." Not until minutes later, allegedly after providers were apprised of the identity of their patient, did they resuscitate him.

According to Victor Bockris' 1989 biography
(301-02), after examining Warhol's wounds, the physicians muttered "Forget it" and "No chance." But Mario Amaya, who had also been shot by Solanas at the Factory (but less seriously injured), was on a nearby operating table. Amaya shouted, "Don't you know who this is? It's Andy Warhol. He's famous. And he's rich. He can afford to pay for an operation. For Christ's sake, do something!" "Spurred on" by Amaya, lead physician Guiseppe Rossi massaged Warhol's heart and saved him.

Warhol lived another 19 years, until February 1987, when he died apparently as a result of nurse malpractice after gallbladder surgery at
New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center.

This comes from The Moderate Voice...

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

Three years after posturing over Terri Schiavo’s right to be kept alive after brain death, members of Congress are faced with real end-of-life questions in proposed legislation to force the FDA to speed up its drug-approval process and give terminally ill patients access to investigative drugs.

Last week they had to look into the eyes of a 12-year-old Maryland girl with inoperable liver cancer as her mother pleaded on her behalf.

“Finding help for a sick child should be easy, but it isn’t,” said Anna Tomalis’ mother, who told them her daughter had been turned away from drug studies because she is not healthy enough. “For Anna, time is running out. She doesn’t have years to wait for these drugs to become available.”

The new bill is sponsored by Kansas Republican Sen. Sam Brownback and California Democratic Rep. Diane Watson. “What we need is a system that looks at the patient and their life-or-death situation, not at a bureaucracy and its needs,” says Brownback, a melanoma survivor. “This is deadly neglect, and it can’t continue.”

From the other end of the political spectrum, Rep. Watson cites the grass-roots movement that demanded experimental drugs for terminally ill AIDS patients, arguing that “anyone whose diagnosis amounted to being handed a death sentence” should “have an opportunity to try these drugs.”

Grate Scott!!

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

And no, I’m not fooling, but I do apologize in advance for asking a question that I knew would merely trigger one of Scott McClellan’s rote little speeches. But I couldn’t help it. I was so stirred by the report that came out yesterday from Bush’s Presidential Commission to Blame Everyone But the White House for the Sexed-Up Intelligence on Iraqi WMDs, that the question wouldn’t be denied. Anyway, it was a quiet Friday afternoon in the half-full briefing room. I’d come in that morning for the very brief gaggle, during which there were a couple of good questions about Bush’s response to Tom Delay’s threat against the judges that ruled in favor of Michael Schiavo. Scott’s answer was that the President supported the ‘culture of life,’ though, when pressed a little harder, he did admit that, yes, Americans should “follow laws” and “adhere to rulings of courts.” That was reassuring. During the break before the scheduled 12:30 briefing, I strolled around Lafayette Square, enjoying a beautiful Washington spring day. Back in the White House, the televised briefing began with four or five questions related to the Pope’s precarious health and one from Helen Thomas, who asked whether the President was unhappy about being misled by the CIA about Iraqi WMDs (wink wink). I finally got my chance near the end. I said (with a very shaky voice, I’m afraid)..............:

What remains...

From GetReligion.org

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

9 11 Cross copySeveral years ago, I wrote a Scripps Howard News Service column about one of the more obscure disputes linked to the death, or death by starvation, of Terri Schiavo — whether or not her body should be cremated, against strong opposition of her devout Roman Catholic family.

I knew, of course, some of the territory here, in terms of how many religious groups — including Eastern Orthodox Christianity, my own church — view the care of the body after death. I had written, in the past, about the Mennonites and my studies of Jewish and Catholic culture exposed me to a number of different points of view on these issues.

So, trust me, I have a lot of sympathy for the task faced by reporter Benedicta Cipolla, writing the Religion News Service story that went out onto the wires with this headline: “9/11 families sue for right to religious burials.” Here’s the top of the story:

NEW YORK — After the memorial Mass on Oct. 26, 2001, for her son Christian, a probationary firefighter who died in the Sept. 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, Sally Regenhard didn’t proceed to a cemetery.

There was no cemetery because there was no body. Christian’s remains were never found......................

This thread from Diago is a powerful statement of what is happening to our country.

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

Three news items this week again highlight the corrupt manner in which our tax dollars are doled out to evildoers throughout our country. These three items also hammer home why the GOP is known as the Stupid Party. If the Planned Parenthood is going to spend $10 million a year to elect Democrats, why do so many Republicans continue to vote to give $330 million a year to Klanned Parenthood? Never mind that giving money to Klanned Parenthood is like donating sand to the Sahara Desert. But with one hand Planned Parenthood accepts $330 million of our tax dollars from the Dirty Dozen Republicans and their Democratic friends , and with the other hand they write $10 million dollars worth of checks to beat the candidate these same Republicans are backing.

First we read that Democrats Give a Discount to Planned Parenthood by using a bill designed to help fund our troops. According to CitizenLink.com, on Wednesday, the U.S. Senate voted on an amendment to the War Supplemental Appropriations Bill. Democrats, led by Sen. Barack Obama, had inserted language to help Planned Parenthood into the domestic-spending portion of this troop-funding bill. The Senate passed the amendment 75-22.

Next a note from Father Pavone of Priests for Life concerning what we can expect from the billion dollar Big Abortion Lobby: ..............................

From The Passionate Prolifer...

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

Just ask the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology
who in 1965 redefined pregnancy to be, "the implantation of
the fertilized ovum" in the womb. According to the great Baylyblog, article on morning after pills and Christian pharmacists, ACOG was simply manipulating facts to suit their ideological agenda - allowing for the IUD.

So, interestingly, although they were guilty of fudging on the definition of pregnancy, even they admit a "fertilized ovum" is the beginning of life. While the Denver Post persists in mocking the Colorado for Equal Rights Personhood Amendment as the "fertilized egg effort," it seems as though the experts recognize the truth. In fact, in a recent survey sent to 112 ACOG members, 70 of 96 (73%) said conception was a synonym for fertilization and only 23 of 96 (24%) said conception was a synonym for implantation in their own clinical practices.

Doctors are calling her a 'miracle baby' - the little girl who was delivered alive and well after growing in her mother's ovary instead of the womb.

For nine months, Meera Thangarajah and her husband Ravi were completely unaware their baby was anything but normal.

It was only during the birth, at just before full term, that midwives realised they were dealing with a medical phenomenon.

Her parents have called the little girl 'Durga' meaning Goddess, because 'she is our little deity', a beaming Mr Thangarajah said today.

British experts say the chances of a baby being carried for so long in this way and both mother and child surviving unharmed are a million to one.

Million to one: Ravi Thangarajah cuddles her miracle baby daughter Durga who grew inside her ovary for almost nine months

Professor James Walker, spokesman for the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said Mrs Thangarajah was 'very lucky'.

We echo it ad nauseum as the media perpetuated the outrageous lie, loud and often, that decent Americans wanted innocent Terri dead and abhorred anyone who would try to save her. Sometimes it is a blunt message, sometimes it is caged in cute camouflage, or maybe just echoed by the ignorant dupes.

“I was very upset during Memorial Day weekend. We couldn’t go anywhere because of the cost of everything, so we stayed home to watch the Indianapolis 500. I have never seen so many commercials in my life. Watching television is becoming so commercialized that we are being robbed of 20 minutes every hour for watching everything, even old movies. We are being robbed anytime of money. We plan to cancel our cable June 1.”

“I had seen two different political ads advertising what religion they are planning on inserting into our government. Although I appreciate knowing what these people are planning to do, I think it shows the wrong direction we are going. Just like the Terry Schiavo case, religion has no place in our government. I hope our voting reflects that.”

Mercifully we are spared the whole brief article as we may only extract from Boston.com. It is all matching words and phrases, though, mindless rattling of a liberal reciting memorized talking points. Naturally it just has to refer to Terri, too.

I can only imagine Missy shed her shoes and spread her hands to start the count to eighteen or twenty.

Forget, for a moment, our hard-fought battles for the right to vote, and consider just a few of the valid reasons we all have for voting this time around (mind you, this list barely scratches the surface): the Iraq war, healthcare and the lack thereof, Halliburton, Karl Rove, the Minnie Lou statue, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, stem-cell research, big oil, the Christian right wing of the GOP, God as science, Terri Schiavo (remember her?), women's reproductive freedoms, Katrina, Roe, your children.

GOP, how do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways

Kottkamp in the news...

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

TALLAHASSEE - The Memorial Day weekend that Gov. Charlie Crist spent at Sen. John McCain's Arizona ranch has kept political gadflies buzzing about the prospect of Florida's governor running for vice president alongside McCain this fall.

Rarely mentioned is the man whom Crist would leave behind to lead Florida, should he run with McCain and win.

"Everyone in Florida would say, 'Jeff who?'" said Darryl Paulson, a political scientist at the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg.

That's Jeff Kottkamp he's talking about, Florida's soft-spoken lieutenant governor from Cape Coral who has remained deep in Crist's shadow since the two took office in 2007.

~Snip~

In 2006, he brought key conservative credentials to the gubernatorial ticket that Crist lacked. Primary rival Tom Gallagher had attacked Crist for being too liberal, and attacked his positions on abortion and gay rights for being too nuanced.

Kottkamp, meanwhile, was a recognized pro-life conservative who voted in 2005 to reinsert brain-damaged Terri Schiavo's feeding tube, a move that Crist had opposed. Kottkamp received the Christian Coalition's Faith and Family Award in 2004, and the Florida Catholic Conference's Defender of Life award in 2006...............

Kottkamp Agenda Can't Be Predicted

More wisdom from Professor Pope...

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

I blogged last week about the Kalamazoo Gazette's profile of Dr. Kenneth Fisher. One of his specific suggestions for curbing the overuse of technology at the end-of-life is "to revise the Patient Self-Determination Act and Americans with Disabilities Act so they ensure appropriate and beneficial medical care rather than provide patients the right to demand any level of care."

Disability activists like Not Dead Yet showed some concern about such a proposal: "Got that? Fisher wants to go after the ADA specifically to weaken or eliminate our legal rights to direct our own care and determine what we think is appropriate."

While I am no ADA expert, I do not think Fisher's proposal is very radical. First, the federal PSDA provides no real substantive rights. As I explain in Health Matrix, it just helps ensure that patients are aware of their decision making rights under state law.

Second, the ADA appears to be not much help for patients whose physicians have a medically-documented basis for thinking requested treatment is inappropriate. See generally Schiavo v. Schiavo, 403 F.3d 1289, 1294 (11th Cir. 2005) (noting that “[t]he Rehabilitation Act, like the ADA, was never intended to apply to decisions involving the termination of life support or medical treatment.”); Grzan v. Charter Hosp., 104 F.3d 116, 120‐21 (7th Cir. 1997) (reviewing cases and legislative history); Rideout v. Hershey Med. Ctr., 30 Pa. D. & C.4th at ¶ 95 (1995) (quoting Anderson v. Univ. of Wis., 841 F.2d 737, 740 (7th Cir. 1988) that “the Rehabilitation Act forbids discrimination based upon stereotypes about a handicap, but it does not forbid decisions based on the actual attributes of the handicap.”); Johnson v. Thompson, 971 F.2d 1487, 1492‐94 (10th Cir. 1992).

Protests can be highly effective...

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

Planned Parenthood fundraiser a night to remember

What a perfect evening on the greens of Denver Country Club in a multi-million dollar
mansion. Joris Brinkerhoff planned to treat Planned Parenthood contributors to an
evening of cocktails, music and a seated dinner on the terrace. And then there were
pro-lifers.



Jay, Mr. Abortionist, greeted the fancy cars as they drove up the street toward the
entrance. "It's a big job, I can't kill all these babies without your help. Thank you!"
He dropped the bloody baby dolls, dismembered them, no different than a real
Planned Parenthood abortionist. As the cars approached the mansion entrance...




We forced them to drive under signs exposing them for what they really are: Baby
Killers. They would usually drive by 1-2 times before turning in under our signs. They
would do anything to not have to drive under our signs. But we wouldn't let them.



And then the night got even more exciting. We did our homework at the Collaborators
Project and a public alleyway led us down to a completely unobstructed view down
on the garden party. It was a protesters dream. After they thought they made it
through the worst of it, the pro-lifers party had only just begun...



We were right on top of their party. I mean RIGHT on top...



The guests came out with their cocktails to peruse the terrace and sightsee all the
plants, fountains and the like when suddenly a loud noise came from above...



We all chanted "Life, yes! Abortion, no! Planned Parenthood has to go!" over and
over again. The terrace cleared within minutes and everyone went inside.



The catered meal was delayed for an hour and a half as the millionaire pro-aborts
hoped we would leave. We didn't budge. We knew the greatest opportunity was
about to unfold...



It was practically dark when they finally came out for dinner. It was after 8:30pm.
One of the pastors protesting did something absolutely classic. As the fifty pro-abort
collaborators sheepishly ventured outside and sat down to dinner, he said, "Now, we
will say grace. Let us pray."

Another minister opened the dinner in prayer and continued to lead the event in a night
of prayers, worship and chants, including, "No child killing with tranquility." Their
dinner was ruined. Their party was ruined. All in a days work here at the
Collaborators Project. Thanks for your help and support Bob.

Will Duffy

DEVELOPING....I got two voicemail messages in a row from OVERSEAS. 1. Please call so and so to "help John McCain." 2. Please call so and so to "help Charlie Crist help John McCain".

IMO, McCain can't get phone bankers so I got calls from Southeast Asia.

If I call so and so. The RNC gets zero from me unless ANTI-EUTHANASIA has its own plank on their platform.

The asian caller should have said "help Charlie Crist help himself". If I call so and so (local), the Terri lecture is always ready for delivery.....

(from wikipedia)

OSTRICH Cultural depictions

In popular mythology, the Ostrich is famous for hiding its head in the sand at the first sign of danger.[38] The Roman writer Pliny the Elder is noted for his descriptions of the ostrich in his Naturalis Historia, where he describes the Ostrich and the fact that it hides its head in a BUSH.

He adds that it can eat and digest anything. This is embellished in the Physiologus which reports Ostriches can swallow iron and hot coals. (FV:GOP FUNDRAISER BAR-B-Q?) The last belief persisted and evolved in heraldry, where the Ostrich is represented with a horseshoe in its mouth, symbolic of its iron-eating ability.[39] It was a positive symbol in Ancient Egypt; the deity Shu is portrayed in art as wearing an ostrich feather, while Ma'at, goddess of law and justice, bore one on her head.[40]

The Ostrich's behavior is also mentioned in the Bible in God's discourse to Job (Job 39.13-18). It is described as being joyfully proud of its small wings, but unwise and unmindful of the safety of its nest and harsh in the treatment of its offspring, even though it can put a horse to shame with its speed. Elsewhere, ostriches are mentioned as proverbial examples of poor parenting (see Arabian Ostrich for details).

In the Ethiopian Orthodox religion, it is traditional to place seven large Ostrich eggs on the roof of a church to symbolize the Heavenly and Earthly Angels. The Ostrich represents light and water for the Dogon people, its undulating movement symbolic of water movement.[41]

There have been no observations of Ostriches putting their heads in the sand. A common counterargument is that a species that displayed this behavior would not survive very long. Ostriches do deliberately swallow sand and pebbles to help grind up their food; seeing this from a distance may have caused some early observers to believe that their heads were buried in sand. Also, ostriches that are threatened but unable to run away may fall to the ground and stretch out their necks in an attempt to become less visible. The coloring of an ostrich's neck is similar to sand and could give the illusion that the neck and head have been completely buried. "Don't hide your head in the sand," is an old saying that means don't ignore a problem thinking that it will go away

FYI: They can go without water for awhile but they really enjoy splashing around in it. Note the references to water, neglect of their young and law and justice from wikipedia. FV

YIKES - Two horrible messages here: 1) Why sorry Charlie Crist????; 2) Shows what a globalist McCain is if he’s using Southeast Asia.

btw, How did you know it was Southeast Asia - by their accent??

It reflects the minds of those who embrace death and find so much in it, except for themselves. Such matters as origin are likely simply irrelevant to their way of thinking. Thread by wagglebee.

NEW YORK, May 30, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The New York State Attorney General’s office has ordered the owners of a “plastinated” body display in New York to post signs at the entrance of the exhibit telling visitors that it is not possible to confirm whether the bodies displayed were those of executed Chinese prisoners who may have been victims of torture.

The order came last Thursday after the company, Premier Exhibitions, admitted it had no way of knowing the exact origin of the bodies, all of which were obtained in China, a country that executes more of its citizens than any other nation. Under the terms of the settlement, the New York Times reports, the exhibitors cannot obtain new bodies without documentation proving the individual’s identity, cause of death and consent for the body to be displayed. The company has put aside $50,000 for refunds to visitors who have seen the display.........

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A new Gallup poll finds just 28 percent of Americans take a pro-abortion position on the question of when abortions should be allowed. Another 71 percent of Americans either want all abortions to be illegal or want them limited to certain rare circumstances....

Apparently, mutually beneficial relationships are the "new politics" for Senator Obama, his campaign manager David Axelrod, and Rev. Michael Pfleger, the left-leaning Chicago Catholic priest who ridiculed Hillary and insulted white Americans this week in a racially-charged speech from the pulpit of Barack Obama's church. According to USA Today:

Obama's spokesman, Ben LaBolt, was unable to say when Obama last spoke to Pfleger. LaBolt said Pfleger stepped down from the Catholics for Obama committee a few weeks ago, but he could not say why.

He confirmed that Obama steered a $100,000 state grant in 2000 to a Pfleger-affiliated community program.

Pfleger contributed $1,500 to Obama's state Senate campaigns from 1995-2001, Illinois records show...............

Yes, those are really great sites. I urge everyone to visit them. They are really amazing. The value they place on their loved one is tremendous.

Well, if they don't need conservatives to win, why are they still writing begging for money, asking me to pay for the stamp for their survey, calling me on the phone begging me to help? They don't even seem to recall I'm an INDY now. McCain needs people on the ground and he's not going to have many. I personally don't know anyone who's willing to do anything for McCain.

I just sent a survey back in with www.terrisfight.org on the envelope and "Remember Terri Schiavo" and on the survey, I wrote in magic marker for them to drill here and use clean coal technology. I never fill out the survey, put a stamp on the envelope or give them any dough. But, "remember Terri Schiavo" goes on the reply even if some minimum wage person is the only one who sees the envelope.
