    The following letter/fax [May 22, 2000] indicates how our Florida Governor has been ignoring the true case of Zoe E. Stronstorff, which indicates extreme Elder Abuse. (It appears he sacrificed health safety and government funds to protect his corporate cronies (HCA -IHS) and campaign contributing physicians. Whether patients are abused does not seem to concern him. Whether similar incidents could be avoided in the future also seems not to concern him).

    ENDING THE MADNESS by Timothy Rollins, Editor and Publisher March 25, 2005 Now that the Supreme Court of the United States has once again justifiably rejected the pathetic puppy-dog pleas of Bob and Mary Schindler (right) to have the feeding tube of their daughter Terri Schiavo reinserted, they need to just let go and let their daughter slip away from this life into the next. As it stands, Terri is faced with two kinds of unspeakable agony; one, being wilting away from lack of food and water, and the other being indefinitely trapped in a body that has in fact...

    TFP Student Action ^ | 02-25-05 | TFP
    The case of Terri Schiavo has been riveting public opinion for some time now. However, recent events have forced the issue into the foreground. Terri’s time may be running out. If her husband, Michael, has things his way, Terri’s feeding tube will be wrenched from her on Friday, February 25 at 5:00 pm, resulting in her starvation and death. Right now, Terri’s parents are praying and fighting in court to keep her alive. The American TFP is part of a groundswell of reaction and is petitioning Gov. Jeb Bush and others to intervene. Catholic teaching is very clear on the...

    People already have the right to refuse unwanted treatment, and suicide is not illegal. What we oppose is a public policy that singles out individuals for legalized killing based on their health status. This violates the Americans With Disabilities Act, and denies us equal protection of the laws. Disability opposition to this ultimate form of discrimination has been ignored by most media and courts, but countless people with disabilities have already died before their time. —Not Dead Yet: The Resistance, a disability rights organization, Forest Park, Illinois, October 28, 2003 In 1920, a prominent German lawyer, Karl Binding, and a...
  • House speaker Byrd defends law keeping brain-damaged woman alive

    Florida House Speaker Johnnie Byrd defended in court papers Monday a hastily passed law that allowed Gov. Jeb Bush to order the reinsertion of a severely brain-damaged woman's feeding tube. Meanwhile, an attorney for Bush asked the 2nd District Court of Appeal to throw out a lawsuit that contends lawmakers and the governor overstepped constitutional bounds when Bush ordered Terri Schiavo's tube reinserted Oct. 21 despite her husband's wish that she be allowed to die. An attorney for Byrd asked Circuit Judge W. Douglas Baird for permission to intervene through a friend-of-the-court brief, which argues that the Legislature has the...

    <p>The mass e-mail sent out by Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's re-election campaign is telling: Democratic challenger Bill McBride, already a proven giant-slayer, is 10 percentage points behind the Republican incumbent in a new Zogby poll.</p> <p>It is a slim lead against a political neophyte who overcame a 50-point deficit to defeat Janet Reno in the state's Democratic gubernatorial primary.</p>

    My friends from Florida and in other places, this modest prayer thread for Governor Bush is not about poll numbers, sound bites or tv spots. It's about the mighty political battle ahead with unknown, yet to be revealed elements. While we do our serious campaign work for Governor Bush, Attorney General Candidate Crist, Agricultural Incumbent Bronson and Katherine Harris, to name a few great candidates, please stop by here once in awhile to ping or bump this thread. If you have a special, unifying prayer you'd like to post here, feel free. I believe in the power of prayer. Above...

    AN EARLY 'VOTE' Governor's earned second term Politics will be politics, but facts are facts and right is right. We know this, but we seem constitutionally unable to put politics aside, face the facts and do the right thing unless we happen to be under direct surprise attack by mysterious, swarthy terrorists with beards. It's not all that hard; we could simply start by agreeing on the obvious and going from there. There doesn't have to be any momentous emergency at hand; we can look at where we are and easily discern all the interlocking emergencies we are busily cooking...
