It is one of the stories that is on CNN all the time. It burns my goat (hmmmm......tasty), that politicians and special interest groups jump all over this at the 11th hour and start a campaign of misleading information. Lets thank the media for parading it around us for weeks and giving all the Christain special interest groups a voice. I admit it is an important topic, a persons right to die, but it was already decided. Bush was saying it is the strong's position to protect the weak. Yes please do! Protect the weak's right to die! The court determined that Schiavo did not want to live artifically. She did not want to live that way. Why force her to live?  
On that same note, what a crappy way to die. She was around for 14 days, they say without food or water. BULLSHIT, some asshole must have given her water. That just added to prolong her suffering. Oh well, she was a vegetable anyways, so she didn't really suffer.

14 days is the maximum that someone can live without water. I reckon that since she wasn't mobile she wasn't using much of her reserves very fast.  
Anyway, the way I see it, she was already dead, long ago. What you do with her corpse is of little consequence. But it really is disgusting that the rethuglicans in congress got involved the way they did - really makes me ashamed of my government and my country.

What bothers me is the case goes through the court and a series of appeals for many years with the final verdict in favor of the husband. Next the fucking Republican leaders wanted to create a law at the last minute to overturn the courts decision - the whole fucking concept of checks and balances go out the window. Thankfully that didn't happen but now it looks like that want to create legislation for this type of thing in the future.

You know, our government is fucked, there's no denying that. What bothers me is that every asshat out there has a knee-jerk opinion based on what they see/hear on the news. Is it sad that she's dead? Yes. Do I think she's better off dead? I don't know, because I WASN'T FUCKING THERE, and it's none of my fucking business. (Although I tend to believe what the doctors had to say, because THEY'RE DOCTORS and they're basing their opinions on SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE. Imagine that!) Those self-righteous protesters and assholes screaming outside of her hospital have no right to butt in, and neither does the government.  
I guess the good thing about this whole thing is, the husband won, which is a positive step forward for anybody who believes in exercising personal freedom. I know it seems kind of crass to say this, but I wonder who's picking up the 15 years of hospital bills to keep a vegetable alive... whoever it is, insurance company, whatever, can't be happy. And Shiavo's parents, well, it's a sad place to be from a psychological standpoint, to most likely be unable to accept reality when it's breathing its hot, stinking breath in their face.

And now, the Pope is dead. Geez, what a bad week for Christians. First, their attempts to keep the Schiavo vegetable sufficiently watered failed, and now, their meaningless figurehead kicks it. But for this athiest, I just kept coveting and masturbating like I would any other week.
