Teri Schiavo

I've been away a long time and everyone and their mother has been blogging about this case, but I got to get a few things off my chest:

  1. We have common-law marriage, why not a common-law divorce? Michael Schiavo has proven incredibly unfit except I guess to the judge.
  2. Why can't Michael just hand Teri over to her parents? He can keep the money. Heck, a businessman even offered him a million dollars just to turn Teri's guardianship over to her parents.
  3. Why hasn't the court taken into account evidence of abuse by Michael? There is a bonescan of Teri that clearly shows multiple fractures all over her body. This is consistent with either a trauma or abuse. There is no evidence of an accident like a car wreck, so logically abuse is the primary cause.
  4. The only assistance Teri requires is a feeding tube. She is NOT on a ventilator or any other machine. She is being penalized, basically, because she can't swallow. Of course, we don't know that for sure because they haven't even tried to feed her by mouth anytime lately. Not to mention the fact that Michael has not allowed any therapy for her at all. This is, of course, contrary to the large verdict Michael received by suing the hospital; a judgement that was supposed to be used to care for Teri.
  5. She has amazingly survived in a hospice for these last years. Not the most conducive setting for a patient. This also shows Michael's intent. He could live free and clear with the money and the women he's living with and sired two children with, but Michael insists on killing her instead.
  6. We are apparently now ruled by judges with no recourse. Democracy is dead.

Man, I've been reading about all the people who hate the U.S. and their idiotic reasons for doing so. Some morons even wish the US "never existed". So, I thought I'd post some more things about America.

  4. Invented Penicillin.
  5. Invented airplanes.
  6. Invented computers.

  11. Invented mass production.
  12. Built the Internet.
  13. Helped end (with British) widepread practice of slavery.
  14. Vote for women.
  15. Voluntary military service.
  16. Invented modern X ray machines and MRIs.
  17. Ibuprofren, Viagra, Lipitor.
  18. Open heart surgery.
  19. Organ and blood donation.
  20. Organ replacement surgery.

Felons R US

This should be the Democrats' new tagline - Felons R Us. After all, Hillary and Kerry are putting forward a "count every vote" bill that would automatically restore voting rights to all felons. It would also make it so easy to vote that you'd only need an IQ in the teens or higher to vote Democrat. The Democrats may be losing elections, but they still know who their core consitituency are - criminals and stupid people.

Our Wounded Warriors

Okay, I'm back. NRO has some excellent articles on our soldiers and Iraq, specifically our wounded. These soldiers are incredibly inspiring. I just have to quote the end of an interview,

"NRO: If there was only one thing Americans could know about the enemy, what would you like it to be?

Captain Rozelle: They are cowards that hide behind women and children. We will destroy them."

Dang straight.

Terrorists in Iraq reach new low

From Iraq the Model comes word the terrorists are now kidnapping and using mentally-handicapped kids as homicide bombers. Omar writes, "I strongly believe that terrorists are cowards but the cowardice you’re going to see in this story is just exceptional. The suicide attack that was performed on an election center in one of Baghdad's districts (Baghdad Al-Jadeedah) last Sunday was performed using a kidnapped "Down Syndrome" patient. Eye witnesses said (and I'm quoting one of my colleagues; a dentist who lives there) "the poor victim was so scared when ordered to walk to the searching point and began to walk back to the terrorists. In response the criminals pressed the button and blew up the poor victim almost half way between their position and the voting center's entrance".

The Big Dog believes there are not enough agonies in Hell to truly give these terrorists what they deserve.

Okay, Okay - the State of the Union

Little Dog has reminded me that I have yet to post on President Bush's State of the Union speech. Geez, it was just yesterday. Anyway, they call me the Big Dog (Caninus Maximus), but I think after this speech we all know who is the Biggest Dog of All - President George Bush that's who. He's like a Great Dane/Rottweiler mix or something that got put through one of those bad "scientific" accidents in "Honey, I (insert phrase) the Kids" movies, but he didn't shrink - he grew to gigantic size! W put the growl out to numerous losers, as well as encouraging the faithful and those in the middle through his vision and confidence.

And then, the embarassing Democrat response. You ever seen one of those commercials or old cartoons where a little yippie dog has a smooth, human voice-over and its supposed to be funny? That was Harry Reid but it wasn't funny, except in a pathetic sort of way. I think even Little Dog could kick his butt.

Then there's Nancy Pelosi. Wow. From a distance you think, hey, she's kind of nice looking. Then you get up close (like in TV interviews) and you realize its like those French Poodles who are shaved in places and it is just too much skin that you really don't want to see. It is a freak of nature kind of experience, it just ain't right. A human's face should move more, especially below the eyebrows.

Regardless, I doubt either of these two Democrats strikes any, and I mean any, fear into the hearts of the terrorists. But I bet the terrorists have nightmares about Bush.

Lawyer Joke

Q: How many lawyers does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: How many can you afford?

Argh! The UN...sigh...again.

Quite frankly, I hate writing about the UN because they just stink in every way possible. But, these stories are important for those people who still believe the UN is made "of sugar and spice and everything nice". We now have allegations that Saddam paid an assassin in oil-for-food vouchers! The link is here.

Killings in Darfur "not genocide" according to UN

You know. What good really is the UN? I guess they feel guilty about doing essentially nothing to stop the mass-murder in Sudan and so they just refuse to use the word genocide. Because if they did, they'd be guilty of doing nothing to stop genocide. Or maybe they feel guilty about UN peacekeepers and workers raping African girls. Who knows? Now, let's be clear -the report found widespread, systematic killings aimed specifically at civilian populations, but hey, according to the UN at least it is not "genocide". Oh no. According to the UN these are only "crimes against humanity". The UN did get a little tough and made sure to say that these crimes should "still be prosecuted". Hey, maybe the prosecutors could also use a little harsh language on these guys. That'll show 'em. The UN vultures are worthless, just worthless. Why is the US paying dues to these thugs?
