congress to pass bill

the congress is about to pass a bill in the schiavo case and I am very glad:

I'm sick of the 'right to die' lunatics crying on and on about how congress ought not to get involved. well if not them then who? the answer; nobody.

they say that the federal government has no say in this matter, that terri would have wanted to die if she could think at all. but you notice that many of these people are the same ones who said we ought not to get involved in iraq. and you something? I've looked all over and haven't seen one iraqi saying that he or she wasn't glad that we went in. (i've heard a few say that they wanted the americans out, but never that we shouldn't have gotten in in the first place.

the schiavo case has more controversy than any since the 2004 elections, and you know what? I find myself once again lined up with president bush (and I hate the man!).

I hate it when people use the term 'assisted suicide.' I think that it's a euphemism for murder, and every time it's used I want to punch the user's light's out (which is pretty frustrating because I nearly always hear it over the internet).

when I was thirteen I went to boston to protest with 'not dead yet' a group of disabled people who (quite naturally) don't want to die.

they had a theme song, only the chorus of which I remember:

we're not dead yet,
we love our crippled lives,
we want to live,
not to be euthanised.
wo-oh they lie,
wo-oh they lie,
wo-oh they lie.
it's really genocide.

odd, nu? we all lined up at crosswalk and handcuffed ourselves together. for some reason, the cops couldn't or wouldn't unlock them. they used chain cutters (I can't remember the word and it's driving me batty) to cut the cuffs apart.

"Today it's Terri, tomorrow it's another disabled person," said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and he's very right. be careful oh 'right to die' nuts it could be you.
