One More Thing…

Just one more thought regarding Terri Schiavo. After having put a little more thought and research into this I’ve still reached a similar conclusion, but I will say that it is biased because Michael Schiavo’s side of the story is non-existent. He won’t talk to the press and we only really know his side through his lawyer and through what Terri’s parents are saying to the press. Her husband is engaged to another woman, has two children, with this other woman. He has already moved on with his life, and it stands to reason, that if Terri’s parents want the responsibility of caring for her, financial and otherwise, he should simply divorce Terri and let them choose for her.

Yes, I think Mr. Schiavo has a right to choose for his wife, and while there is no legal obligation for him to consider the wishes of her family, there is a moral obligation to do so.… [Read More]

Terri Schiavo

So, correct me if I’m wrong here.. Florida law allows for those in a vegetative state to be taken off life support if they have a living will.

So um… Mr. Schiavo… where’s her living will?

Without a living will, Terri can’t exercise her right to die. To be honest, I think you are milking poor Terri for all the attention you can receive. I think you’re a sympathy junkie. I think you have already moved on with your life and think you should just divorce your wife rather than wait for her to die so you can marry the woman who has birthed one child for you already with another one on the way.

There’s no moral victory for you here sir. There’s no moral victory here for anyone.… [Read More]

Interesting Prediction for the RIAA

This article predicts that the government will only tolerate the RIAA’s bull for so long. It’s an interesting point. The RIAA does sort of hold monopoly power over the music industry, particularly in light of the raids on small music stores that sell home grown cd’s made by local bands.

Yeah.. the RIAA is in it for the artists… sure. I believe that like I’d believe a man trying to sell me the Brooklyn Bridge.… [Read More]

Feds to Pay for Cali’s Budget Deficit?

How wrong is this? I mean come on. The way you balance a budget is to cut spending to fit the amount of money you have available to you. Anyone who has ever balanced their checkbook knows what it means to not buy things for a while because you don’t have the cash. California needs to catch up.

Arnie, I love ya, but this is an insane idea. Just balance the bleeding budget!

Okay, okay, so it makes good political sense, but we’re already tired of paying for California’s mistakes. That whole energy fiasco a few years back? Rates for electricity went up all across the west coast thanks to the federal government stepping in and saying that other power companies had to sell power to California at a rate so deeply discounted that it was less than the costs incurred for producing that power. That discount got passed on to other consumers on the west coast in the form of a rate hike.… [Read More]
