To Serve and Protect

Yesterday, March 5, 2013, on the Diane Rehm radio show, I heard the following: "It is not your place to do this. It is God's place."

The man making that statement was Representative Krayton Kerns, of Montana. He was speaking of medically assisted suicide. And, he has put his money where his mouth is.

"House Bill 505 was introduced Feb. 15 by Rep. Krayton Kerns.

This bill would undo the rights afforded under Baxter and weaken the Rights of the Terminally Ill Act by threatening physicians with imprisonment for answering a patient’s questions about a variety of death-hastening options, potentially including withdrawal of a ventilator or feeding tube. HB505 would send us to prison for 10 years for providing the choices that the Montana Supreme Court and the Rights of the Terminally Ill Act afforded."


Can you imagine imprisoning doctors for being humane?

Humane Choice Was Death

All I could think of when hearing this, was my late father. At the end of his life, he was totally out of it mentally; having "brown-outs" daily (unable to control bowel movements), and thinking he was back in the 1950's, when he and my mom were sweet-hearts.

It was heart-breaking.

Day after day....watching the formerly bright, funny, sarcastic, greatest-laugh-in-the-world husband and father; vegetate as this out-of-his-mind, drugged-up diaper-shitter.

I would have given anything to have my dad back. But he was already gone. The most he had to look forward to was an infinity more of bad smells, crazy fuzzy thoughts, and the recognition that he did not know who he was.

Even at this moment, I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I only know that the day his life ended, he was at a Hospice: A wonderful place, full of compassionate volunteers. That morning, the nurse called us saying "his fingernails are turning blue".... apparently the sign; his time was almost up.

We said our goodbye's to a man who knew not who we were.

After it was over, and my dad left his body, my mother took me to the Hospital and had me sign a consent form, so she would never,ever have to exist as a comatose, barely conscious drug reciprocal; costing the tax payers a ton of money in the process.

My mom gave me the power to take her life, should she become a living, breathing lump.

And you can do the same:

Do Unto Others

the golden rule
the golden rule

Who Decides What is Life?

As you can imagine, when I heard this man on the radio telling the audience that the decisions to make on my father's life were not ours, but God's.....you may well understand my outrage and anger at the presumption of this fellow; how dare he tell me and my family what to do!

I resent him trying to make laws on the back of my hurt and wounded heart.

Can anyone tell me why my dad is any of his business?

If anything, keeping my dad alive as a vegetable would have cost the society much.... and for what? To keep his body alive, that is all.

As far as I'm concerned, that is one of the cruelest uses of the religious state I have seen.

In case you were wondering about Kerns: Yes, he is a garden variety Tea Party Boy:

In 2009 he successfully sponsored House Bill 228, a controversial castle doctrine bill supported by the National Rifle Association, which, among others, allows a person at home to use deadly force in the face of any perceived threat.

Planned Parenthood of Montana criticized Kerns in March for a blog posting in which he discussed Sandra Fluke's congressional testimony over contraception funding and a bulldog making $1,000 a month for "stud services".

      Since the media only cares “what trump voters feel”, let me tell you about the rest of us…..the majority.

      “People who responsibly wore masks and got vaccinated are losing our patience with those who refuse to do either. And we’re getting annoyed with public policy that is centered on their refusal to do the minimal to stop the spread.”

      “I went on IG yesterday and pretty much told every colleague, friend, family member who is anti vax/ anti mask to f*ck all the way off forever, that every new restriction we face is all their fault. Most people I know are PISSED about this.”

      Think about it.....

      Trump unleashes the virus, destroys the pandemic response team, does not take it seriously, tells america it’s no big deal, hampers ppe, calls it a Democratic hoax.

      Meanwhile, 500,000+ Americans have died.....something Putin surely must enjoy, given his propensity to kill opponents.....

      And now they tell us the vacinne is the killer.....

      Let’s talk about Denmark. First of all, the entire country has 5.3 million people....less than the population of my state!

      Second:

      “The Danish government was among the first countries in Europe to act and act firmly against the virus by declaring a national lockdown and closing its borders. The country’s approach was more drastic and differed greatly from its neighbour and” old enemy” – Sweden, where relatively few measures, except ‘social distancing’ were imposed on public life. Denmark banned large public gatherings, closed down all unnecessary venues across its cities, heavily discouraged the use of public transportion and all manner of travel unless absolutely essential. Daycares, schools and universities were very quickly shut down and air travel was severely restricted – and while these restrictions have become the ‘new normal’ across the continent, Denmark was among the first countries to impose such restrictions.

      Moreover, the Danish health care system is very equitable and free for everyone, independent of health insurance, and with a tradition of a large public sector of high quality hospitals and clinics, with relatively few private clinics. This aspect was also a contributing factor to the impressive pace and flexibility with which the entire health care system was able to prioritize and reorganize medical departments, isolation wards, and hospital beds, as well as doctors and nurses, to be optimally prepared to isolate and treat admitted patients.“

      *****

      They’re out of Covid now, because they were tuff on it from the start!

      And everyone gets healthcare.

      Sweden, which took a herd approach, is still in Covid, like USA.

      New Zealand, Vietnam, S Korea, even China are much better off.

      The deniers are taking last place.

      As ever, Trump the divider in Chief. He will never change. Never get better. He will always be a bitter, vindictive little boy.

      He thinks we owe him 4 years. Speaking for myself, I owe him nothing. He owes me my taxes back, for taking them as he stole Covid supplies from my state.

      For letting us die. For telling us we don’t belong here.

      For being president of 30%, threatening to lock the rest of us up.

      I’ll pay taxes, because I must, but it’s really taxation without representation.

      Ugh, someone just reminded me......

      Yesterday, at the gvrs news conference, the dept of health was on there.....

      Chastising people for putting off needed care due to Covid. Well, it’s because you, the health dpt were telling us to!

      YOU were out reaching care months into the future. YOU! My mom needed a cat scan for possible cancer in March.....YOU put off her appt til April 29! “Keep away from the hospital, we need it for Covid” was the mantra.

      When she finally got so bad I said eff it, she’s going to die.....the ER took her. Tested her for Covid (negative), but STILL didn’t do the cat scan!

      Well, her doctor went ballistic. Got her an appointment. I took her in to radiology, was just walking around waiting. They called me back in about a half hour. They said she’d have her results within an hour. I said “wow, that’s fast”

      The nurse said, “yes, we’ll we’re not doing anything. We are dead in here.”

      Dead, because they were closed to all but Covid patients!

      Now they are shaming people for putting off care! Man, it’s so annoying.

      It’s actually a little crazy. I mean, do they not remember their own policy???!?

      Since some magas mentioned Bill Clinton again, I thought you’d like to hear about Donald trump:

      “Trump Raped her as she begged him to stop. He told he to Shut-Up! She couldn’t stop crying... He stopping her by hitting her across the face. She was 13!”

      And, the point:

      “Have you noticed that not once has trump denied this on Twitter. Also....I have not and will be not be sued for Slander. Why? Because everything I write is taken directly from court records. It’s all true.”

      Of course, you know they mentioned Clinton and Epstein, soooo:

      “Trump was buddies w/Epstein, attended his under-age-girl parties, & was accused by Katie Johnson, in Dec ‘16 of raping her at age of 13 at an Epstein party. She dropped her law suit after receiving multiple death threats.”

      Outlawing late-term abortion means that, Women will not be allowed to abort a child even if it means both her and her child would likely lose their lives.

      How can anyone be OK with this?”

      *****

      How about a man who impregnates a woman with a pregnancy she doesn’t want gets the death penalty.

      Same difference.

      You want to compare US to Switzerland?

      Don’t forget this:

      “Costs of living are high in Switzerland, but elevated nominal wages averaging 72,000 euros ($81,313) compensate, according to Glassdoor.”

      Sounds good!

      And this:

      “After a decade of largely unrestricted access to abortion, the rate in Switzerland remains stable and is among the lowest in the world.”

      Let’s do it!

      Kasich signed the bill. Any notion of him being centrist was always a fallacy.

      He’s another pervert who likes to control women. Or he’s a craven poltician, setting his ground for 2020.

      Either way, he totally ignores women’s rights under the Constitution.

      You are still using Hillary to deflect from Trump!

      How long do you think you can keep that up?

      None of this crap would be happening if she were prez......which is why more of us voted for her.

      Just because you dont care what he does.....the rest of us are sickened by it.

      You dont get to throw around hypotheticals in the face of this utter malice in gvt.

      You dont know what Hillary would have done unless you read her plans. Did you?

      And i KNOW she would have helped Puerto Rico. Kids would NOT be separated from their parents in cold cages being molested.

      And we would not have given billionaires more money taken from the US of A.

      Now, people with cancer who depend on the ACA are back to stressmode......because altho we apparenty have an empty hole of money going to the rich....golfing, staying at hotels, tax cuts, subsidies, removing regulations so its cheaper to do damage.....

      We are poor when it comes to 99.9% of us.

      say....hows that deficit??????????

      Legislating from the bench.....cant get higher than the Supreme Court.

      “It was a term in which Justice Kennedy’s influence waned, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.’s power grew and Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, who completed his first full term, turned in the most consequential freshman performance by a member of the Supreme Court in living memory.

      In replacing Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in 2016, Justice Gorsuch returned the court to full strength and to a conservative majority after a bare-knuckled political brawl over Justice Scalia’s seat that lasted more than a year.

      Justice Gorsuch supplied a decisive vote in 15 of the 18 cases decided by a 5-to-4 margin. In 14 of those, he voted with the court’s conservatives, with the court’s four-member liberal wing in dissent.”

      Just what do you think will happen now that Kavanaugh is there?

      Yes, we have a definite rightwing problem.

      From my POV.....and the majority of Americans.

      And remember, this bias was STOLEN, just like the 2016 election.

      Then he paid her off to shut her up....right before the election.

      "On International Women's Day, the Mississippi House passed a bill by a vote of 75 to 34 that would ban abortions after 15 weeks' gestation. (The Senate had passed an amended version and the House needed to sign off on it.) There are no exceptions in HB 1510 for rape or incest, and Governor Phil Bryant's spokesperson said he would sign the bill if it reached his desk. The bill would go into effect immediately and doctors who perform abortions past 15 weeks would lose their license to practice medicine and face civil penalties."

      There was a kid in my grandson's kindergarten class that didn't like him cause he was mixed race. Used to call him Booby (his name is Bobbie)

      Anyway, one day at recess, this kid punched Bobbie in the stomach. But when a teacher heard the commotion and came around, he fell to the ground crying and said, "Bobbie punched me!"

      This was Trump yesterday, at the presser.

      Playing for sympathy and outrage against good, honest people, to cover for his dishonest and dirty actions.

      Trust and believe, people out there have him pegged.

      And not just Putin.

      He insults people at will, AS my representative to the world.

      He has zero idea what he's doing, and doesn't seem to care.

      And, he spent all of his campaign insulting and tearing down America.

      Hes a flim flam man.

      And also, lost the popular vote by 3 million fellow Americans.

      We know Republicans think Dems are stupid, as Home Depot owner says, and dont know how to think, as Trump says....

      ‘With previous Conservative governments, as bad as they were, essential state services such as Health and Education weren’t privatised. How things now look set to change as David Cameron is setting the stage for the privatization of the National Health Service.

      The biggest risk to the NHS is the introduction of an American model in Britain, where citizens need to have a private healthcare plan to have access to medical care. This system is absolutely dangerous and classist, because it doesn’t allow to low income households to have a decent and free healthcare. Moreover the American model is often subject to insurance frauds and the influence of very rich lobbies.’
