There is a woman standing on the street in front of WalMart with a sign...
that says "I stand for Terri's battles." Remember I live in a small town of about 15,000 people and WalMart is pretty much the hub of the town. What do these people think they will accomplish? It sounds to me like it is up to the courts now. It's not like you can call your senator and ask them to save her. So I guess the idea is to draw attrition to the story. WHY?! Turn on CNN it's all you see. Everyone is always talking about it all the time anyway. Why do people feel so strongly about these decisions that SHOULD be private matters? Maybe she is out there at WalMart just so I would write this?

1. Maybe she has nothing better to do in her life but live with the GOP Lies
One life is just a worthy as the next, and these types of decisions must be left up to the family that they effect not to strangers who do not care at all.

:kick:

2. She feels she's doing something without, you know, actually having to
do anything.

3. Take her literally. If she stands for Terri's battles...
... and Terri has fought in zero actual battles...


then this woman at WalMart stands for nothing.










And all is in harmony with the universe again. :)

4. Now see I would walk up to her and...
say, "God bless you. I think she should be allowed to die in anonymity and with dignity too. Shame on the fundamentalists and Republicans for turning her demise into something political and public. Thank you for letting people know that not all of us are stupid ignorant morons who swallow everything the media spoon feeds us. I'm sure Terri appreciates your support in her desire to pass away peacefully."

9. Bingo!!
Thank her for her thoughtful support for Mrs. Shiavo's privacy. I love it, and who knows, maybe that's what she's really out there saying. You could find a new friend and kindred spirit. Hey, it could happen. A hug might me well placed too.

7. lol, that reminds me, I should do something today...
It's only 5 over on PST right now, though. It was 3 when I saw her. I was on my way back from school on the bus.

10. If I had a lick of sense . . .
I'd be selling some little die cut magnets with "Support Terri Schiavo" printed on them for 10 bucks a whack and getting rich.


If I had a way of outsourcing the job to China.

12. DUers questioning protesters
Now I believe I really have seen it all.

Why do people protest anything?
