“What happened to just being a human being, you know? It’s nothing more than state-sanctioned murder. All the big guys, they all have their hands tied up by some tinhorn judge down there. Come on, when they want to whip a judge, they got no problem doing that. Look what they did to [Ten Commandments proponent Roy Moore] in a heartbeat. So they can do it if they want. They just don’t want to.” (Mel Gibson)
Thank you, countrygirl411, for this quote. I hope more people see the inconsistencies in our judicial system that Mel points out in his comment. Just WHY was Judge Greer so much more powerful than Judge Moore? Why was he able to enforce the murder of an innocent woman, while Judge Moore was prevented from maintaining the exhibit of the Ten Commandments? Why are some judges so “powerful” and others not? I don’t really have answers to these questions, but I’d love to hear any comments you have. I do know that my sense of justice is deeply offended by what has transpired.
My husband and I were talking about it yesterday and we both agree that there’s a difference between life support and life assistance. Life support being the type of intervention that Christopher Reeve received (he was not able to breath on his own for more than a very short period of time). Life assistance is the type of intervention that keeps you going while you receive care and therapy to recover (like the feeding tube Terri was denied).
We both decided that we’d have no problem with life assistance if there was a possibility that we’d recover. Neither one of us wants to be on a ventilator or other support if that’s all the recovery we’d ever have.
We need to put this all in writing.
