Pelosi and friends thought they could help the economy by using stimulus money to pay for contraceptives, thereby keeping the population under control. Regarding the other end of life's spectrum, do you think Obama and Pelosi might be interested in utilizing physician assisted suicide as a cost-saving measure in their plans for a Socialized Health Care system? The debate over physician assisted suicide might be coming soon:
In November, 57.8 percent of Washington voters said yes to a ballot initiative that permits physicians to offer terminally ill patients prescriptions for a lethal dose of barbiturates, which patients may self-administer to end their own lives.
The state's "Death with Dignity" law took effect March 5. Supporters and critics agree that if the law works without documented problems, as it has in Oregon since a similar law was enacted in 1997, it could boost support in other states. Supporters say they would target states that have narrowly rejected physician-assisted suicide: California, Vermont, Maine, and Hawaii. In Montana, a judge in December ruled that physician-assisted suicide is legal in that state, holding that the state constitution's right to privacy allows it. The state has appealed the ruling to the Montana Supreme Court.
Besides arguing against the morality of patients taking their own lives, opponents contend that older, disabled, and depressed patients are vulnerable to being pressured to kill themselves.
"It lowers the barrier for suicide among people who are depressed and feel they are a burden—particularly seniors, who are classically underdiagnosed for depression," says Geller of the Coalition Against Assisted Suicide.

Off With Their Heads

Is this the end of America?
The AIG bonus firestorm is a diversion from real issues , but it puts the ghastly political classes who make U. S. law on display for what they are: ageing self-serving demagogues who have spent decades warping the U. S. political system for their own ends. We see the system up close, law-making that is riddled with slap-dash, incompetence and gamesmanship.
Obama pushes US budget despite alarm
Obama's policies would cause government spending to swell above historic levels even after the costly programs to alleviate the recession and shore up the financial system have ended. The result, the CBO said, was that by 2019 the US national debt would be about 82% of GDP...

The Outrage Kabuki
Right now, Washington is telling the planet: In our America, there are no rules. Got a legally binding contract? We’ll tear it up. Refuse to surrender the dough? We’ll pass a law targeted at you, yes, you, Mr. Beau Nuss of 27 Plutocrat Gardens, Fatcatville. If you want a banana republic on steroids, this is great news. So cheer on thuggish grandstanding by incompetent legislators-for-life like Barney Frank if you wish.
