A warning in The American Spectator...

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

THERE'S A MODERN FABLE written by Maurice Sendak in which an apathetic child named Pierre answers every question with the phrase, "I don't care." Eventually, Pierre responds that way when a hungry lion warns that he is about to eat him, and the young boy is promptly swallowed whole.

~Snip~

This should also be a concern for social conservatives. If government is the leading, or perhaps eventually the sole purchaser of health care, the state will be in the position of deciding who gets what kind of care--this is precisely how government-run systems control costs. The Terri Schiavo case was just a harbinger of the tragic scenarios that are likely to arise in the coming decades with the development of life-preserving technologies.

Salisbury stakes...

Learning the looney left lexicon, one can perceive the idiotic thought process that passes as logic. Who but another goofy liberal could swallow this pattern and accept it? We have seen how propaganda suggests that decent Americans wanted innocents like Terri dead and abhorred any who would wish her life to continue. Here it is a step even further in suggesting that support is "extreme", radical.

Other reasons Lohmer might want to obfuscate her ties to Michele Bachman are Bachman’s extreme religious objectives. Will Lohmer adhere to the radical right with a Minnesota version (ala Matt Dean) of the Terri Schiavo forced feeding/artificial life support tragedy? Will Lohmer advocate for a Dover, Pennsylvania School Board religious right that illegally sought to teach Intelligent Design/Creationism in their children’s science classrooms? Will Lohmer continue the divisive hoopla about gays destroying the institution of marriage? Will Lohmer follow Bachmann opposing stem cell research?...............
