Scarborough Country's Passionate Plea For Terri SchiavoTopics: Terri Schiavo's Life Counts
- From Jackson's Junction
Scarborough Country's Joe Scarborough laid out one of the most passionate pleas for Terri Schiavo tonight that I think I have seen from any network news show. You just have to watch.
Scarborough: "We see a beautiful young woman made in the image of God. A God who will not bless this or any country that kills it's weakest or most vulnerable citizens. May God forgive us all."

Nothing to say that hasn't already been said but I offer this prayer for Terri and her family:
Prayer of St. Patrick
I bind unto myself today
The strong Name of the Trinity,
By invocation of the same
The Three in One and One in Three.
I bind this today to me forever
By power of faith, Christ's incarnation;
His baptism in Jordan river,
His death on Cross for my salvation;
His bursting from the spiced tomb,
His riding up the heavenly way,
His coming at the day of doom
I bind unto myself today.
I bind unto myself the power
Of the great love of cherubim;
The sweet 'Well done' in judgment hour,
The service of the seraphim,
Confessors' faith, Apostles' word,
The Patriarchs' prayers, the prophets' scrolls,
All good deeds done unto the Lord
And purity of virgin souls.
I bind unto myself today
The virtues of the star lit heaven,
The glorious sun's life giving ray,
The whiteness of the moon at even,
The flashing of the lightning free,
The whirling wind's tempestuous shocks,
The stable earth, the deep salt sea
Around the old eternal rocks.
I bind unto myself today
The power of God to hold and lead,
His eye to watch, His might to stay,
His ear to hearken to my need.
The wisdom of my God to teach,
His hand to guide, His shield to ward;
The word of God to give me speech,
His heavenly host to be my guard.
Against the demon snares of sin,
The vice that gives temptation force,
The natural lusts that war within,
The hostile men that mar my course;
Or few or many, far or nigh,
In every place and in all hours,
Against their fierce hostility
I bind to me these holy powers.
Against all Satan's spells and wiles,
Against false words of heresy,
Against the knowledge that defiles,
Against the heart's idolatry,
Against the wizard's evil craft,
Against the death wound and the burning,
The choking wave, the poisoned shaft,
Protect me, Christ, till Thy returning.
Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
I bind unto myself the Name,
The strong Name of the Trinity,
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three.
By Whom all nature hath creation,
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word:
Praise to the Lord of my salvation,
Salvation is of Christ the Lord

Not to be crass...............but do you suppose FOX News will instruct Sean Hannity to strike a deal with the Schindlers for the remains of Terri for the purpose of actually taking the body to the Senate floor and let "Captain Bill" finally make his "expert" analysis on this matter so he could at least say."I told you so"?I can see it now,minion Hannity and Fox crew circumvent CSpan and shut em down so they can have the "Exclusive" rights on the autopsy.Not without senator Frists exhorbitant fee paid upfront by medicaire cuts first though.HYPOCRITS,each and all........The "Republican" party has died by its own hand.Good riddance

Schiavo by proxy thank you for speaking for her.may you continue to have health and happiness.and thank you Joe, for having a conscience. We are witnessing the tangible evidence of the death of outrage.we have become an expendable,disposable people.why is this woman being put to death?why the insistance?..i can see that money under the table right now...there is nothing more than ''here say''..there is no written document by Terri,that specifies her wishes.no living will written by her.There is only a suspect little man,who has no more authority over this woman than anyone else in this world.detectives,.scientists,and theologians, worth their salt)all rely on some semblance of evidence.this is a culture war.unfortunately,.this isn't worthy of being deemed a culture anymore,.in any respect. In the Bible,Christ says that there would come a time when people would kill one another and think that they were doing the will of God. Even the roman centurian gaurds gave Christ gaul (water)while he thirsted on the cross. Ultimately,.She is being allowed to die because she holds no special titleship.She isn't a consumer.She can no longer be a stepford wife to the scott petersons of this world.She can't spread her legs for our masturbatory culture.She can't titillate us with her acting skills.She isn't aesthetically pleasing,.as say,.some bubble gum anchorwoman. She isn't draped in ''bling bling''...She Entertains us ,.only in so much that we are a death culture. who are more depraved,..the dying,.or those stopping to observe? christoper hitchins,..I have another four letter word for you... LOVE This time,.it won't hurt. ''does big brother exist?''... yes. ''The same as Me''? no,you do not exist. ''The individual is only a cell,.within a bigger organism.'' ''somehow,you will fail. Life will defeat you.In the end ,they will beat you. They will tear you to pieces.'' 1984 The Stand The Alarm ''the sick and the lame,.Preacher Man seeks the same,who gets there first is uncertain.matchsticks,tear gas,malatoff coctails and rocks behind every curtain. False hearted judges,.dying in the webs that they spin. Only a matter of time 'till night time comes stepping in.'' oh,jokerman,you know what he wants,.oh,jokerman,.you don't show any response.'' jokerman- Bob Dylan ''Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.'' ''I was Thirsty,and You gave me drink.''Christ We will suspend our belief for movies,..but not for ourselves. we have people arrested for cruelty to animals,..but murderers get three squares a day and a room with a view. i don't have a view of the Ocean,..but scott peterson does,.and he's ''jazzed'' about it. We have perverted Language, and relyed on semantics to such an extent ,that we need an interpreter and a lawyer just to speak to one another.We use words such as,.''Pro Life'',...to utter such words One must be alive.that's some serious paradox. by virtue of being alive,.one can not be anything but ''pro life. Facts are subject to change. Truth is constant. Stephen Hawking was supposed to die within two years,.but He fought,not to remain alive by most definition,.but to live in his mind,..we are not supposed to be defined by our physical abilities,.or attributes ,rather by our totality,.the sum of our being.to be conscious ,in any capacity,..is precious. in his mind,.he is free.and i wonder where he is tonight.In between moments of Contemplating string theory, the cosmos,and yes,..even God. His eyes, full of Stars. His eyes full of Stars. And when dawn breaks,.i wonder how many stars will be left in Terris' Eyes.

Call down the Thunder:3/21/05
Catherin Crier:''discussing'' Terri,.''She died fifteen years ago.'' hey,.i like some lawyers and all,but have you seen the arrogence on some,...they're just lawyers,...lah -haaa- yers -lah- haw -haw -yers...i don't wanna worship them or anything. She's the''Anti Grace''... and I bet she'll be filing her nails while their dragging the lake. ''almost certain Terri will die.''- Be:To have Reality or Life Subsist: To have Reality or Life Exist: To live for an extended period Catherin Crier and others:'Why did he turn down the million dollars?”and she went on about how ''overly empathetic and concerned he was during Terri's Hospice treatment. Didn't Scott Peterson exhibit simular if not exact same psychopathic behavior during the search for Laci? Guise for control?..false indignation,..reverse psychology?....and about the infant mortality rates...for the ones that make it out of the womb,.i assume those are the infants you are refering to...and poor hospice treatment of the elderly. Or in general..etc,.etc....Yes.We need to improve,.in some instances drasticly improve on Health care.however,.that's like saying that it is an acceptable end to a means... ''False Piety''? Hey,.if false piety saves Terri's Life,.and improves Health Care for the disabled and the general public as well,..i say bring in 'da clowns....
and to add insult to injury,.we are refering to her as if she is already dead.
''misplaced empathy'' false hope projected''-Braverman- Nancy Grace and this caught my ear as well,..On refering to some journalists who were reporting where Terri is being kept.''We may see you there,.next week or next month,..who knows''.... isn't this ''process'' expedient enough for you olberman?... maybe i was only half right with the equasion,..maybe it's more than just lack of outrage,..maybe it's more about incompetence.13 going on 30,.think about it ...Most,.don't want to be accountable to anyone or anything,....they just leave their brain droppings,and curt,.piss warm,dry apathetic ,.cynical observations for everyone else to pick up after...and after they are shown the demographics and how much money they'll lose,..they suddenly put their chainsaws and fubu gear back in the trunk and begin to subtlily insert words such as ''Lord'' and God'' back into their rhetoric.....when we get to a point ,.in this country,regaurdless of your political affiliation,.to where,.we have to pause on the side of the curb and discuss the color,.size and frequency of feeding tubes,or of someone who is about to get hit by a speeding truck,..then the waters are neck level. Aw,.shucks,..there i go a' ramblin again,...hey bartender,.got any more of that good sasperila?.. 12:00 p.m. Please excuse the above entry. I just found out that Terri has Died. This morning while writing the above entries,.i thought i might inject some levity,for the protesters,.for everyone.
I'm Numb.I suppose i don't want to believe it. This is what comes to mind:i hope it brings comfort and solace to her family and all involved.and i hope that it is appropriate: God Speed Terri: Ring Them Bells Ring them bells, ye heathen
From the city that dreams,
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries
Cross the valleys and streams,
For they're deep and they're wide
And the world's on its side
And time is running backwards
And so is the bride.
Ring them bells St. Peter
Where the four winds blow,
Ring them bells with an iron hand
So the people will know.
Oh it's rush hour now
On the wheel and the plow
And the sun is going down
Upon the sacred cow.
Ring them bells Sweet Martha,
For the poor man's son,
Ring them bells so the world will know
That God is one.
Oh the shepherd is asleep
Where the willows weep
And the mountains are filled
With lost sheep.
Ring them bells for the blind and the deaf,
Ring them bells for all of us who are left,
Ring them bells for the chosen few
Who will judge the many when the game is through.
Ring them bells, for the time that flies,
For the child that cries
When innocence dies.
Ring them bells St. Catherine
From the top of the room,
Ring them from the fortress
For the lilies that bloom.
Oh the lines are long
And the fighting is strong
And they're breaking down the distance
Between right and wrong.
