Prepare: Die with Dignity

Buried in that 1000 page mess of a "health care" bill are a number of encouragements for our medical community to address the concept of "Death With Dignity" for those who are terminally ill or aged.

Someone countered the indignation about Death With Dignity as meaning "we need to let those that are both aged and terminally ill what options are available to them".

There are only two options available to older, terminally ill patients.

Option One - "Doc, I don't want to take any more of that medicine, or have chemotherapy or undergo another operation. I think I will just let nature take its course and have at it".

Option Two - I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick.

- Excerpt from the Modern Hippocratic Oath. Read the whole thing as well as the original. There is no place in either for euthanasia, assisted suicide or death on demand.

That's it. There are no other options. Either the patient wants to stop treatment or the doctor continues to do all in his power to provide treatment.

These were the rules before the government "stepped in it" just a generation ago and before the insurance companies waded in to make a mess.

Now about that Death With Dignity stuff..

Here, let me translate that from NewSpeak for you - Death with Dignity is the suggestion that doctors discuss with their patients that they accept their condition and go and die sooner rather than later, (also before running up costs for others to pay).

[I am sure there will be future legislation with the terms "mandatory" and "assisted" included as well].

As my wife said last night, "It seems more and more like they are readying us for Soylent Green"

After Chuck Heston watches Edward G. Robinson become a Human Happy Meal he comes to the conclusion..

Hungry yet?

With California, courtesy of the Feds, turning off water to many of the prime food producing areas in Southern California, we may be heading to the Soylent Supermarket sooner rather than later. With the drought in California worsening, perhaps they want us to start eating off the excess population?

We also have the Feds wanting to tax soda pop to raise money for "non insured health insurance". Funny how economics works. If you raise the price on something through artificial means (taxes, fees, etc), demand drops and with it, revenue.

Last night on ABC Nightline, they began the propoganda prep for "national food guidelines for healthy eating". They made the point that certain salty and fatty foods were addictive. Observation: It's not your fault you are fat, you are addicted. And, the Feds should regulate those bad food, like liquor and tobacco, because it will be good for you. I can't make this stuff up.

Ready to give up? Good. That's their plan. Overwhelm us with so much garbage we become depressed, complacent and docile.

No thanks. We are stopping them now. We are on to their plan. I don't care about the politics or the talking heads, I care about the results.

I don't want to live in an overly regulated safe world which encourages me to wear a helmet and pads just to take a walk outside. I don't want to live in a world which forces me to sign a waiver to mow my own lawn. I don't want to live in a world which demands I eat a certain amount of tofu and forbids me cooking meat on my grill out back.

So I will resist. Remember that concept? Resist. Say no. Refuse to go along. Be difficult.

We will win. They are too fat, bloated, full of self importance and delusion to change us now. Get busy, get to work.
