Well, maybe they wouldn't actually tape it, but with the sick bastards we've got running the show nowadays, you can never really tell for sure.
Alright bitches, it's time to strap up and defend our defenders. Our good friends in the Zero Administration have brought back the VA's "end of life planning document," "Your Life, Your Choices."
Right. An "end of life planning document," otherwise known as the "please let us put you to sleep because it's cheaper than treating you" document.
Too harsh? Too bad, because it's the truth. Check it out:
Last year, bureaucrats at the VA's National Center for Ethics in Health Care advocated a 52-page end-of-life planning document, "Your Life, Your Choices." It was first published in 1997 and later promoted as the VA's preferred living will throughout its vast network of hospitals and nursing homes. After the Bush White House took a look at how this document was treating complex health and moral issues, the VA suspended its use. Unfortunately, under President Obama, the VA has now resuscitated "Your Life, Your Choices."
"Complex health and moral issues" my ass.
A while into the article, Jim Towey gives us a few glowing examples of exactly what’s included in this friendly little document:
"Your Life, Your Choices" presents end-of-life choices in a way aimed at steering users toward predetermined conclusions, much like a political "push poll." For example, a worksheet on page 21 lists various scenarios and asks users to then decide whether their own life would be "not worth living."
The circumstances listed include ones common among the elderly and disabled: living in a nursing home, being in a wheelchair and not being able to "shake the blues." There is a section which provocatively asks, "Have you ever heard anyone say, 'If I'm a vegetable, pull the plug'?" There also are guilt-inducing scenarios such as "I can no longer contribute to my family's well being," "I am a severe financial burden on my family" and that the vet's situation "causes severe emotional burden for my family."
Fucking. HELL. People.
By the time I finished the article, I was in a white hot rage of doom. But after I calmed down a little bit, I got an AWESOME idea. We should run this idea, make it worse, and instead of forcing it on veterans apply it to the politicans and bureaucrats who pulled their heads out of each others' asses long enough to write this horrendous "Death Book!"
That way, when politicans like Arlen Specter, Dianne Feinstein, and Teddy Kennedy (it's so not too soon) have outlived their usefulness, we could just put them to sleep rather than putting up with their idiotic bullshit!
Oooh...if you're a liberal, that last dig at Kennedy probably pissed you off. Well, now you know how we feel when you attack soldiers and veterans who put their asses on the line so you can be free to behave like a damn moron.
At any rate, I don't think this is going to fly in the end. Consider...the lefties have this guy:
...But WE have THESE guys:
Anyone planning on saying no to that? I didn't think so.
