i just heard terri schiavo is dead.

i'm so fucking glad that's over. i never cared about it. i count the hours i spent watching the news hoping that some real news happened and having to listen to that shit as hours of my life completely fucking wasted. i should sue her parents for stealing those precious hours from me in their morbid fight to prolong their essentially braindead child's life. it was fucking sick and selfish.

and i don't care if you think i'm a heartless bitch.

Current Mood:
chipper yay!

It was basically selfish, I agree. I actually contend that even tho who do charity/volunteer work are still selfish, because by doing so they are satisfy some kind of internal need/desire to do so. But that's another topic.

In this case... I like to say... mourning is about the mourner's loss, and not the person who was lost.

they polled the country and 68% of the people polled thought that the government shouldn't be involved in the schiavo thing at all, that the husband had the right to pull the feeding tube if he knew those were her wishes.

the united states isn't a democracy, it's a republic. it's considered a "democratic republic", it even says "and to the republic for which it stands" in our pledge of allegience, even so, most people that live here still believe it's a democracy. it's retarded.

i don't think that a majority of people would vote for those things, were they to make people vote on issues. even in red states, there are thousands of people (usually in the urban areas) that don't believe in the right-wing conversative christian way. unless the issues voting went through our horribly flawed electoral college system, it would show that a majority of americans aren't stupid redneck freaks.

what annoyed me the most is the "unbiased" media. they're being paid to give us facts, not wax poetic about how beautiful life is and how we shouldn't snatch it away from a vegetable that can't even fucking appreciate it.

gah! *kills things*

although, after the sick tv funeral they'll have today, it'll all be over!

I'm inclined to agree. . . Especially with your point that she's braindead and can't possibly enjoy her life. . .

I'm glad that this is the last we'll here of Terry Schiavo. . . They should've fucking let her die in peace and dealt with their greif a long time ago. . . Instead they prolonged both her agony and their own. . . Really when you break it down, this whole thing was merely an expression of grief and not wanting to let go of someone who's already gone.

I'm glad, because the Schiavo case permeated every single news show on TV or radio for significant portions of various broadcasts. Even Art Bell burned 45 minutes on it last Saturday night.

i haven't listened to coast to coast in a while, it was always good for a laugh.

I agree, it was selfish to me too. The one good thing that did come out of this was the fact that many people considered writing living wills and actually thought of "what will happen if...". I can't tell you how many people on my friends list now have posts containing "and if I am a vegetable, please keep me plugged in/unplug me".

i've always been really open about my wishes in such cases, eventhough most people think it's morbid. i worry way too much to not be.

i don't have any legal documents drawn, and i'm very much more inclined to have that done now, in case my family goes insane.
