Terri Schiavo 12/3/1963-3/31/2005

As I write this Terri has been dead for 24hrs. Now that she is gone hopefully everyone involved takes a step back and looks at the whole story not just the last 2 weeks of her young life. Her story managed to divide a nation and yet I believe in the long run will actually bring us closer together. I still believe her death was murder and I am positive nobody will ever be able to change my mind. I hope the Schindlers and Schiavos can put aside their differences and truly honor Terri instead of using her as fodder for their respective sides. I hope her autopsy finally answers some of those nagging questions about her condition. And I hope as a nation we can get on with our lives and try to make our world a better place. If it seems I am full of hope all I can say is that's all I have left. Terri rest in peace and may you finally have the comfort you so richly deserve.

Who's will is being done?

Yes I am talking about Terri Schiavo again. The reason I ask this is because I know damn good and well this is not God's will. So if not God's then who's? Terri's? Sorry there is no proof that this is her will. Michaels? Yeah probally but as I have said before this man(and I use the term very loosely here.) gave up any say in the matter years ago. So that leaves us with Judge Greer. This man and this man alone has enforced his will...Not the law as his supporters claim on this young woman for the better part of the decade. Have we turned into a Nation full of sissies? Apparently we have because no one outside of Terri's family has the guts to stand up to this guy. St. Augustine once said "An unjust law is no law at all." We as a nation are going to pay for Terri's death because we did nothing(I'm guilty of this as well). Part of the reason I have even written about this is to ease my guilt of being apathetic to Terri's plight. Luckily somebody I consider a very good friend helped me see the error of my ways. To the Schindlers I offer my apologies and prayers as it is the very least I could do. For the rest of you who believe she should die I can only say shame on you and ask how can you live with yourselves?

Shame on them

There has never been a time where I was so disgusted to be an American(Not even when Slick Willie was getting his knob polished in the Oval Office). But the fact the Courts are content to let Michael Schiavo commit what amounts to murder repulses me to no end. Had Terri been a dog Michael would be facing jail time and a hefty fine. Who am I kidding this is the same court system that upholds Roe vs Wade and allows women to kill their unborn babies for any reason at all. My only consolation in all of this is that there is a special place in Hell for Michael Schiavo and Judge Greer.

Terri

A lot has been said about this young lady...Some good, some bad. On one hand you have her husband who has been trying for the better part of a decade to kill her. On the other you have her parents and siblings who for a better part of a decade have been fighting to save her. How does one even began to decide which side to agree with? The husband IMO is a snake and a scumbag who gave up his rights as guardian the moment he broke his marriage vows and took to playing house with another woman. He refuses to allow any therapy or treatments. Why? What is this man hiding? Terri's family on the other hand want to take care of her and get her therapy and treatment. Are they being selfish? I personally don't think so. I don't need Congress or even a judge to tell me what's happening to Terri is wrong and immoral. I was raised better than that. Hopefully having the Federal Courts involved will allow Terri's family to get her treatment so that maybe she can enjoy a better quality life. I for one would find it awesome if she after having the treatment and therapy came out and said "Thanks for not giving up on me." but I will settle for a smile.

Before you start hating America again....

Let's get all the facts . In case your wondering what in Sam Hill I am referring to I am talking about the tragic death of an Italian Intelligence Agent and the wounding of a freed Italian journalist . I know it's a popular sport to hate America from Europe on down through the Middle East but just this one time why don't you haters let the whole story be told instead of right from the git-go launching your Anti-American Rhetoric . If after a thorough investigation you still feel the need to bash America by all means carry on . I would however like to point a couple things . # 1. The Italian Journalist in question works for Il Manifesto a communist newspaper(In case your wondering the relevance here it's a proven fact that America is the scourge of Communism worldwide) which opposes the war in Iraq. # 2. The same aforementioned Journalist spent a month in captivity which is more than long enough to come down with Stockholm Syndrome. And finally # 3. It has never been the policy of the US Military to gun down freed hostages and I challenge anyone to prove otherwise . Nobody knows all the facts as of yet and in case you didn't notice I didn't condone what happened but I am a firm believer in Innocent until proven guilty .
