From “Sillie Lizzie”:
Edward Kennedy died last night of brain cancer. He received the best medical care that his wealth, his Congressional insurance, and his loving family could afford to provide. And that is as it should be. For some. But not Terri Schiavo. One wonders, was his passing yesterday due to withdrawal of nutrition and hydration? Or did he die yesterday as the natural, inevitable outcome of a process set in motion by the cancer?
Let’s ask ourselves this question: At what point was Senator Kennedy’s brain function impaired sufficiently to render his “quality of life” not worth living? A year ago? Six months ago? Last week? Why didn’t the liberals rise up to demand that he be put to death right then? Consider that one huge difference between Terri and Teddy is that Terri WASN’T DYING of her condition! So let’s look at the contrast between how hers and Teddy’s “qualify of life” were treated.
Funny, not only didn’t I hear liberals demanding his right to die, I didn’t hear anyone interfering in his medical care, advocating that his quality of life wasn’t “worth” preserving. What if his conservative political opponents had pushed the “right to die” on Kennedy, according to our definition of his “worth” (cough,cough), the way they coldly dismissed a brain disabled woman with PVS? How different is that from a brain rotting with cancer, anyway? We might have been accused of a political assassination attempt!
On the other hand, I might have advocated that starving Teddy for the last fifty years would have made him healthier, and dehydrating from all that alcohol might have made a little more rational. Mary Jo Kopechne might still be alive. But that is another conversation.
What if Judge Clarence Thomas had stepped in with RNC lawyers to argue that the family didn’t know what was best for him, and that instead of allowing him to die naturally, he should have been starved and dehydrated in his bed? And kept the family out of the room while they withdrew his food and water? But it was okay for liberals to push it on Terri Schiavo and her parents. You see, she wasn’t an important liberal icon pushing liberal power grabbing agendas in Congress for half a century, either. She was just a poor brain damaged woman married to an greedy, adulterous bastard, whose loving family was denied the right to take care of her, BY LIBERALS, their judges, their courts, and their ignorant, godless, murderous motives. In fact, Terri was a “test case” for what we now see embedded into the Trojan horse of universal health care championed by … Ted Kennedy.
Certainly, for that and a hundred more reasons, I could make a case for why Teddy’s “qualify of life” hasn’t suited me for fifty years and should have had HIS nutrition and hydration withdrawn. But that would be inconsistent with my worldview and religion. Every human life falls under the proprietary rights of God, both to give it and to take it away. Every life is precious in His sight because it is His creation. Even so, He has given us the revelation of law, justice and due process under which society make take the life of some criminals, but only under very tight and prescribed circumstances. And guess what? QUALITY OF LIFE IS NOT ONE OF THEM. Committing a Murder is. And Treason is too. I would have seen people like Teddy, who gave plenty of aid and comfort to our enemies, tried, convicted and sentenced to death for Treason against the Constitution.But it didn’t happen because liberals have turned wrong into right, and vice versa.
So, Teddy wasn’t murdered in his bed by conservatives, or by the State or society, the way Terri was murdered by the State and liberals. And for that, there will divine justice and hell to pay, on this nation in this world, and for the individuals who carried it out in the next world. My guess is Teddy is finding that out this very day as He stands before the throne of God’s Supreme Judge. Frankly, I HOPE SO.”Vengeance is MINE, saith the Lord, I will repay”.
Good Riddance, Teddy Kennedy. I mourn you as I mourn Adolf Hitler, for unleashing a genocide in this nation that was once, “one nation, under God”, a nation whose foundation asserted the Creator-endowed “right to life”. No more, thanks to your ilk.
