Old Age Seen as Justification for Forcing Woman onto Hospice

The admission sounded like something out of “Logan’s Run” or other dystopian sci-fi movie, not an explanation one would expect to hear from legal associates. Nancy Scott and others who joined her in a peaceful prayer vigil for her mother’s life on Tuesday, August 20, were stunned when representatives from the court-appointed guardian’s office explained that the reason that retired Alabama schoolteacher Marian Leonard was on hospice was because she was old.

According to Medicare.gov, hospice care is supposed to be for people who are certified by a hospice doctor and the patient’s regular doctor that they are terminally ill with a “life expectancy of 6 months or less.” Hospice care is palliative, or “comfort” care, rather than curative care, and it is supposed to be a choice that the patient makes, not a decision thrust upon them without their consent.

That is not what has happened with Marian Leonard. When the state seized guardianship of Mrs. Leonard in February 2018 at the request of St. Vincent’s Hospital and the Department of Human Resources (DHR), she was forced into a nursing home, Diversicare of Riverchase, and forced onto hospice care, against her will and that of her designated Power of Attorney, her daughter Nancy Scott.

Federal Eradication Management Agency : Screw You Tornado Victims

In yet another show of dirty handed politicking – the Federal Eradication Management Agency (FEMA) who is supposed to assist United States Citizens after an Emergency just presented their nether parts for Tornado Victims to lick. The politically correct title set forward is”

FEMA, to pay for Irene damage, delays funds for rebuilding in tornado-ravaged areas

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is temporarily suspending some payments to rebuild roads, schools and other structures destroyed during spring tornadoes in Joplin, Mo., and Southern states and other recent natural disasters to pay for damage caused by Hurricane Irene.

With initial damage assessments from the storm potentially in the tens of billions of dollars, the Obama administration will need to request supplemental funding from Congress, possibly provoking another fight over federal spending as a new congressional “supercommittee” prepares to identify trillions of dollars in government spending cuts.

In reality that headline should say “Oh by the way Alabama and Missouri – f*ck you. You just don’t have enough votes to be important enough for our Agency to help you.” As Presidential Candidate Ron Paul pointed out (although he used much nicer terms), FEMA is full of cronies that want nothing more than to rip your head off and shit down your neck. Only thing left of your home a pile of rubble with a few cinder blocks where your basement used to be? DENIED.

Citizens have been the driving force of clean up in Joplin – not FEMA. Because they realize FEMA is pretty for a few days then retreats on high to tell “us” to make sure we “Get A Kit” (but not too many matches or flashlights ’cause you’d have to be reported as a possible terrorist). There is no money left people – none. If Helicopter Ben decides to ease into us a bit more through QE3 (thereby driving us from inflation to hyper-inflation) we’re even more screwed. However I betcha’ that’ll be the excuse from the screaming masses on the East Coast in this instance. “We nneeeeddd mmooonnneeeyy”.

Why?

Votes ya’ fools. Alabama and Missouri have a combined population of about 12 million Souls. That’s nothing compared to the votes that will roll in from the much over hyped Irene on the East Coast. New York alone has 19 Million legal votes and they ain’t likely to be looking to any RINO in 2012.   .Gov cannot have Wall Street, Casinos or Unions out of action because who else will buy into the “Hope it Changes” rhetoric?

As MSNBC says “Lean Forward” – it might hurt a bit less if you relax too.

Note:  Because this is a public hearing, no attempts can be made to force you to “sign in”.  You have a right to enter, to speak and be present.  Besides: the whole place will be under surveillance and your picture will be taken as you enter and during the meeting and you will be biometrically scanned and recorded and put in the system anyway for later identification.   All this aside, you will note in pargraph *3 that you are required to “sign-up” in advance if you wish to attend.  Turns out its not a free and open to the public meeting after all.  Marti
