The Quotable George

“The essence of civilization is that the strong have a duty to protect the weak.”
-George W. Bush upon the death of Terri Schiavo

Terri Schiavo Dead

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

Terri Schiavo died this morning after 14 days of court-ordered dehydration and starvation. Michael Schiavo refused to allow her parents and siblings to be at her side when she drew her last breath.
I’m disappointed. We kill thousands of children each day in this country out of convenience. It was just […]

I’m stunned.

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005

On the murdering of Terri Schiavo:
“She is being starved to death, she is being dehydrated to death. That’s immoral and unnecessary.”
Shock of all shocks - it came from Rev. Jesse Jackson. I didn’t think I’d ever be on the same side of an issue with him.
It’s been 11 days since Terri has had been […]

Seward’s Day

Monday, March 28th, 2005

It’s Seward’s Day here in Alaska. We celebrate it, though the only celebrating I’m doing right now is having a day off work, on the last Monday in March. Seward’s Day, named after the then Secretary of State, William H. Seward, commemorates the signing of the treaty sealing the deal that bought Alaska […]

Sacred Cyber Meditations

Saturday, March 26th, 2005

I’ve recently been exposed to Sacred Meditations by Johann Gerhard, a collection of…well…meditations. It is published in Jacobean English, so is a bit difficult for an easily distracted girl like me to get through. After surfing through commenter Rev. Wade Johnston’s blog, I discovered his modern translation of Sacred Meditations - yeh, his […]

Budgeting by Lutherans

Saturday, March 26th, 2005

I am irritated, and not just about the State of Florida executing Terri Schiavo, but it definitely puts me in the mood to write this post. My church body has been cutting foreign missionaries and mission work in favor of “mission” work here in North America. OK, so souls are souls, right? […]

Holy Saturday and things I wonder

Saturday, March 26th, 2005

I wonder if the day after Jesus’ execution didn’t seem so holy at the time.
I wonder if the disciples slept, and if they did, what did they dream about?
I wonder if they woke up feeling good and then the reality of what happened the previous day came crashing in on them […]

Gov. Bush Requests Custody of Schiavo

Thursday, March 24th, 2005

FOXNews reports:
PINELLAS PARK, Fla. — Florida Gov. Jeb Bush filed a request to take custody of Terri Schiavo on Thursday after the U.S. Supreme Court once again refused to order the severely brain-damaged woman’s feeding tube reinserted.
Circuit Court Judge George Greer, who has consistently ruled that Schiavo did not want to be kept alive […]

A new angle…

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

BlogsForTerri.com is reporting:
According to the Empire Journal, Terri qualifies for the Witness Protection Program.
It is possible she may be placed in this program under the Witness Security Program Act of 1984.
They’re going to have to hurry up with this.
Read the Empire Journal article here.

More on Terri…

Sunday, March 20th, 2005

From BlogsForTerri:
Michael Schiavo has suspended all visitations, including those by Terri’s parents. He is in contempt of court because there is a court order allowing the Schindlers to be with Terri in her court ordered final hours. I’d be surprised if this court actually upheld its own order and brought consequences to […]

and on it goes…

Judge Greer quits his church.
The politicians get it right…
As a deal in Congress was worked out to have federal courts decide Terri Schiavo’s fate, emotions swelled outside the brain-damaged woman’s hospice room Saturday, with protesters arrested after they symbolically tried to smuggle in bread and water on her second day without a feeding tube.
And […]

Real-life Rambo arrested

Saturday, March 19th, 2005

Bo Gritz and three others were arrested in an attempt to bring Terri Schiavo bread and water. It seems a bit like a college prank to me, but there is a reason people did nutty things just to get arrested in the 60’s - publicity.
I wonder if he took all his medals with him. […]

The intolerant Patricia Heaton…

Saturday, March 19th, 2005

In a shameless display of intolerance, Patricia Heaton announced:
We must not let Terri Schiavo be starved to death…This deliberate and painful destruction of a woman’s life cannot be justified or tolerated. Terri deserves better.
She put the smack down. Go read.

URGE SENATORS, REPRESENTATIVES TO RESOLVE DIFFERENCES, PASS ‘TERRI’S LAW’ IMMEDIATELY

Saturday, March 19th, 2005

From BlogsForTerri.com:
Both the House and Senate have now passed bills that would give the Schindlers the opportunity to have their claims that their daughter’s starvation violates her federal constitutional and statutory rights heard in a federal court. Unfortunately, the bills have significant differences in content. Both houses must pass the same version in order for […]

The barbarism has begun…again

Friday, March 18th, 2005

Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube was removed today. They didn’t just stop feeding her - they took the time and energy to actually remove the tube from her abdomen.
Attorney Barbara Weller was with Terri earlier today. She told the media that, during her visit with Terri, she explained to her what was happening. […]

Real life Rambo

Thursday, March 17th, 2005

Bo Gritz. It’s a name that was vaguely familiar to me before I read this article.
Former Green Beret Commander Bo Gritz is trying to conduct a citizen’s arrest of the Terri Schindler Schiavo’s husband and the judge presiding in the case before the handicapped Florida woman is scheduled to have her feeding tube removed […]

Condie in 2008?

Saturday, March 12th, 2005

I hope not.
In an interview with editors and reporters in the office of the editor in chief at The Washington Times, she said she would not want the government “forcing its views” on abortion.
If a government shouldn’t force its views in order to protect the most vulnerable among its people, when should it force its […]

Weirder and weirder

Friday, March 11th, 2005

BlogsforTerri brings us:
Will Pride be the Fall of Judge Greer?
It was amazing, but today Judge Greer rules that the Florida DCF is not allowed to do its job and investigate the Terri Schiavo matter. He further ruled, against the law, that Terri Schiavo also cannot be fed through natural means. DCF has informed the judge […]
