  • Communism and human nature (Bolshie Mod sez, Arise ye kittens of the earth!)

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...
  • The Motive Becomes Chillingly Clear (Michael Schiavo)

    When did Michael Schiavo first start trying to kill Terri? Mary Mostert March 23, 2005 Because I try to track down facts before I write about a subject, I have not written about Terri Schiavo and the battle over her condition. What actually happened to Terri back in 1990 that caused her to be the topic of world conversation today? Before we decide to permanently dispose of her, shouldn't we first find out how she got into this predicament? Well, she collapsed, we are told by her husband Michael, in 1990 and was taken to the hospital . Some stories...
  • Why Want Bush Do Something about the cost of gas? (ZOT!!! He awaits orders from Juwish Modz.)

    Gas costs so much. I cant afford it. Why want Bush do something? Don't say he can't. His daddy or his handlers could be on the phone in 2 minutes with the Rothchilds and by 1 week, oil prices would be under $20 and gas would be 1 dollar a gallon. You know it and I know it. Why want he? Do you know? Is there sombody we can call? Plaese advice.
  • Lessons Learned From Schiavo (add your own too--and don't lose FAITH!!!)

    WASHINGTON — State lawmakers outside of Florida have been watching the case of Terry Schiavo (search) unfold day after day, and, in many cases, they say it will likely spur increased focus on similar life-or-death decisions. But whether states will be inspired to pass new laws to avoid the seemingly unending court drama surrounding the Schiavo case is another matter entirely. "I think we need to look at what we already have on the books," said Democratic state Sen. Donnie Trotter of Illinois, a long-time advocate for public health issues. "The (Schiavo) case itself, I truly believed, should have been...
  • Terri: It's not about the "right" to die anymore. It's much worse.

    We have moved beyond the debate about the "right" to die. It's much worse then that. The situation right now is this: unelected judges vs elected officials. Who is supreme? Whether you agree or disagree that the person should have the "right" to die is not the matter anymore. The judge, UNELECTED, ordered the starvation of Terri is far more much worse and the precedent for the future of US will be HUGE. Situation like this make me scare to death when I'll be in court knowing that the judges have the power of life and death over me.

    Terri Schiavo's life may be fading, but the arguments and turmoil surrounding her fate are not -- as her parents continue their relentless efforts to have her feeding tube reinserted. Emerging from the Florida hospice where his brain-damaged daughter is being cared for, Bob Schindler let reporters know the extent of his frustration. "What you're seeing is textbook example of judicial tyranny," he said late Friday evening, accusing the courts of having, "a mindset to kill Terri." "I think it's disgusting and revolting what these courts have done to her." Just hours earlier, a federal appeals court dealt Bob and...

    The Miami Herald reported Saturday that Florida Gov. Jeb Bush sent a team of state agents Thursday to rescue Terri Schiavo - but it was stopped short by local police. "We were ready to go," Bush spokesman Jacob DiPietre told the Herald.Doctors say that unless her feeding tube is reinserted, Schiavo, 41, will die a week or two after March 18. That is when a judge ordered it removed, having siding with Schiavo's huband's argument that Terri would have preferred it that way.On Saturday, the Herald reported that local police in Pinellas Park, the small town where Schiavo lies at...

    PINELLAS PARK, Fla. (AP) - After another round of losses in the courts, Terri Schiavo's parents kept watch over their dying daughter Saturday, seeking permission to give her Easter communion as their attorneys acknowledged the fight to reconnect the brain-damaged woman's feeding tube was nearing an end. Attorneys for Bob and Mary Schindler decided not to file another motion with a federal appeals court, essentially ending their effort to persuade federal judges to intervene - something allowed by an extraordinary law passed by Congress. But at least three more appeals loomed by the Schindlers and Gov. Jeb Bush. Schindler attorney...

    My Dear Fellow Clergymen: While confined here in the Birmingham city jail, I came across your recent statement calling present activities "unwise and untimely." (snip) You deplore the demonstrations taking place in Birmingham. But your statement, I am sorry to say, fails so express a similar concern for the conditions that brought about the demonstrations. (snip) One may ask: "How can you advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?" The answer lies in the fact that there are two types of laws: just and unjust. I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a...

    Regardless of who you believe, Terri Schiavo's parents or her husband, WHY do we treat convicted murderers better than we are treating Terri? Dear concerned citizen, Imagine if you will, that convicted cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal had a bad lawyer during his murder trial. Assume further that when the new lawyer took over the case, she found credible evidence not originally presented on Jamal's behalf, evidence which could cast reasonable doubt upon the guilty verdict. And then imagine that despite this newly uncovered evidence, one court after another obstinately refused to permit a new trial so that the new...
  • Nazis Used Starvation to Kill

    Saturday, March 26, 2005 6:22 p.m. EST Nazis Used Starvation to Kill Confounding all conventional wisdom and human experience, many liberal groups and even some medical experts have argued for Terri Schiavo’s death. They claim that starvation and dehydration is not painful or discomforting for her or anyone undergoing the experience. In fact, they allege that such victims begin to experience "euphoria” as the victims draw close to death. If such claims are true, we may have to rewrite the history of such notorious events as the Holocaust – where starvation was the key process by which millions died and...

    Published Thursday, March 24, 2005 Doctors spar on degree of Schiavo's awareness; sharp words by some By MALCOLM RITTER AP Science Writer Is there any doubt that Terri Schiavo is in a persistent vegetative state? Yes, argue those fighting to keep her alive, including Gov. Jeb Bush. Doctors have sparred about this before in court, and the most recent ruling upheld the diagnosis. The issue arose again this week when a neurologist, Dr. William Cheshire of the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., said in a court document that he believed it's more likely that Schiavo is in a "minimally conscious...

    Cleveland --- The doctors who created the current technique for inserting feeding tubes into patients say there are no easy answers in the case of Terri Schiavo and use of the procedure has gone far beyond its original purpose. The insertion of feeding tubes required major surgery until Dr. Michael Gauderer, now director of surgery at Greenville Children's Hospital in South Carolina, and Dr. Jeffrey Ponsky developed a technique in 1979 intended to help infants and children who couldn't swallow. Today, it's used more than 250,000 times a year and has become an integral part of end-of-life care. Feeding tubes...

    Despite evidence that the ABC poll on Terri Schiavo used misleading statements to push people toward certain responses, there was Juliet Huddy on Fox & Friends Weekend this morning parroting the poll results that ostensibly show that three quarters of Americans oppose Congress' involvement and believe those supporting the legislation were politically motivated. Huddy offered the poll results as fodder to Jim Pinkerton and the noisome Ellen Ratner during their "The Long and the Short of It" segment. As she did last week, Ratner managed to keep a hideously inappropriate smile on her face throughout the segment. She rejected Pinkerton's...

    The Rule of Terri's Case Strikes Again By: Wesley J. SmithThe Weekly StandardJanuary 30, 2004 The "Rule OF Terri's Case" has struck again. The term was coined by Pat Anderson, attorney for Terri Schiavo's parents Bob and Mary Schindler, who complained: "If following a legal procedure will likely result in Terri dying, it will be adhered to. But if a procedure could make that outcome more difficult to attain, it will not be followed." Anderson's complaint has ample evidentiary support. For example, under Florida law, Terri should have a court-appointed guardian ad litem to exclusively represent her interests. But,...

    The judge who tried the Terri Schiavo case and most recently rejected Gov. Jeb Bush's request to intervene, received a campaign contribution from the lawyer pressing for the brain-injured woman's death, raising questions of a conflict of interest. According to Florida's Department of State, Pinellas County Circuit Court Judge George W. Greer received a contribution of $250 for his 2004 re-election campaign from Felos & Felos, the law firm of George Felos. Felos, known as a "right-to-die" advocate, represents Terri Schiavo's estranged husband, Michael Schiavo, who won a court order from Greer to have the woman's life-sustaining feeding tube removed...

    The Center for Reclaiming America, an organization backed by the Rev. D. James Kennedy, reported that a serious conflict of interest may exist for the Florida state judge who is ruling on the Terri Schiavo case. The report from the center follows: As if the circumstances surrounding Terri Schiavo could not get any more suspicious, the Center for Reclaiming America has uncovered evidence that Pinellas-Pasco County Circuit Judge George W. Greer accepted a campaign contribution from the law firm of Michael Schiavo’s attorney only one day after "Terri’s Law" was declared unconstitutional by a Pinellas county court. This appears to...

    New York Times ^ | 3/26/05 | BENEDICT CAREY and JOHN SCHWARTZ
    At the center of the debate over Terri Schiavo's fate is the question of her diagnosis: Is she in a persistent vegetative state, or in a milder state of brain damage called minimal consciousness? And in either case, does she have any chance to regain awareness? While a few neurologists say it is possible she has been misdiagnosed, an overwhelming majority say there is little room for disagreement. Patients who have suffered brain damage from oxygen deprivation - like Ms. Schiavo, whose heart briefly stopped in February 1990 - almost never recover if they have remained in a vegetative state...
