  • It is a small price to pay for 'free' healthcare. comrades....

    Schindler's List. Sorry Doran but... we have decided your existence is no longer viable and in the interests of the group good. We must reverse your carbon imprint.

  • Right now most are saying... "Mike is exaggerating to make a point" 10 years from now with 'free' healthcare? it will be a reality.

  • Very slippery slope. It appears there are instructions written in advance by the patient. But what's to say you can't change your mind. And leaving it up to the doctor's discretion is kinda fucked up.

    It's seems much different than "assisted suicide". Slipping a knockout drug in granny's coffee and then giving her a lethal injection seems pretty fucked up.

    fact is it is within a year of the election, the Senate will not allow him to appoint her successor. Nov 2020 he will lose.

  • Let me just inject this here..........My Mom, the 45 years Charge Nurse had Alzheimer's.....got to the point she was totally unresponsive. Took her to the Hospital, they drained her bladder, put her on a IV and sent her home to Hospice 2 days later as there was nothing anyone could do. Her mind was shutting her body down piece by piece. So my Mom slowly starved to death. I shudder to think of the dreams she was having during that, if her mind let her dream at all. Was that better than euthanasia? Not for me it wasn't.

    Lemme say that again... I don't care. If. The accusations against Trump. Are factual. Or not.

  • My Dad died from Alzheimer's 5 years ago. At the end hospice came and kept him drugged until he was gone. That was a mercy.

  • If I knew I had an expiration date and I wasn't ready to go I'd have to go out fighting. Unless of course they had this big carrousel that sent me up into the light to be renewed.

  • told my daughter that when things get bad just smuggle in my 44 mag and I will do the right thing....


    Hospice tho.. I get it. My mexican had a brain tumor we fought for a year and a half. it was over. Hospice kept her drugged up till she died. My cousin was full of life till lung cancer was beyond hope.. hospice kept her drugged till she died.


    This is FAR different than a group of free health care officials making the decision.

    I totally understand that. But who should decide what the "right" time is? As I stated before (and it's actually in the article) slipping granny a Mickey in her coffee and the giving her a lethal injection is different. Obviously that woman wasn't nearly that far gone if she was having morning coffee.

  • totally unresponsive.


    that should be the criteria, well to me.


    Or it is asked for by the patient.
