60,000 patients put on death pathway
without being told but minister still says
controversial end-of-life plan is ´fantastic´

Up to 60,000 patients die on the Liverpool Care Pathway each year without giving their consent, shocking figures revealed yesterday. A third of families are also kept in the dark when doctors withdraw lifesaving treatment from loved ones. Despite the revelations, Jeremy Hunt last night claimed the pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’. In comments that appeared to prejudge an official inquiry into the LCP, the Health Secretary said ‘one or two’ mistakes should not be allowed to discredit the entire end-of-life system. But Elspeth Chowdharay-Best of Alert, an anti-euthanasia group, said: ‘The Pathway is

Happy New Year!

Obamacare will not become effective until 2013.

Oops, that is in One More Day.

I would still like to hear the libs appologize to Sarah Palin for telling us the truth about the death panels. Remember the screaming? And they have never denied this truth have they?

Mr. Jeremy Hunt calls the Liverpool "Care" Pathway a "fantastic step forward". To what - Soylent Green? This is a slow-motion (perhaps) euthanasia program with deliberate withdrawal of hydration in at least some cases. In future here in the US it would be wise for all us "common folks" to be aware of what is happening to our loved ones in the hospitals, nursing homes, etc. Know the doctors, nurses, and other professional staff responsible for treatment. Especially know the administrators and their staff, so that they can appreciate that your are watching them and prepared to be helpful. Take notes. Make sure the staff and administration know that you are taking notes and making a record of the proceedings. It might be wise to consider having an experienced attorney identified if/as needed. Do not ever assume that the "authority figures" know what is best and will do it.

This isn´t even a panel. The doctor decides who meets the criteria and stops the food and water. No mention is made to the patient or family. Doctors are rewarded by the system for meeting their quota and harassed if they don´t. The elderly and the very young with need for special care are the prime candidates. Maybe Peirs Morgan can explain why doctors denying care to the helpless is OK but gun ownership is not.

When government controls healthcare, they now have a vested interest in your lifestyle behavior. They will pass laws controlling what you can eat (Hello New York City) but at the same time dismiss very unhealthy behaviors like sexual promiscuity.

In they end, he who pays the bills makes the decisions I and the U.S. Just handed over the decisions to a militant socialist community organizer.

Contact Kathleen Sebelius and tell her Hillary Clinton has a blood clot. Tell her to put her on a end-of-life plan as she is old and useless and has caused much pain and suffering for decades.

That would be ´fantastic´

Sadly the snuffing out of the inconvenient is a major part of the "progressive" value system.
They hide this deciding of who lives and dies in bureaucratic bafflegab. When I left Canada, with its wonderful "free" system, there were not sufficient dialysis machines to deal with all the patients. People were basically being chosen to die while the deciders hid behind "scheduling" issues. A critical part of their "cost control" was under-investment in capital assets. There were only 3 MRI machines in the country when I left.

G.D. America? No... G.D. Obama, for paving the way for this kind of socialist evil to take over our country next. The Affordable Care Act will go in this direction, and we can anticipate it sooner, rather than later.

Once this comes here, whatever you do, don´t put Mom or Dad into a hospital´s care. Pay a private nurse under the table to provide hospice care at home if you have to. And anyone who tries to take them away to an A.C.A.-compliant facility puts their own lives in God´s hands...

The body tends to shut down when deprived of food and water.

A dear loved one can also get into trouble if they are pushing TOO much fluid into the body via the IV so that the kidneys, lungs cannot keep up with it -

If you have a precious grandmother, grandfather or your folks having to go through anything, make sure a family member is there "on board" as an advocate on their behalf.

In Communism, the goal of the state is above all - Marxism does away with individual life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness.

That is why the greatest mass killings of the past century were not done by religion, but by athiest Communist regimes against their own people (Che loved imprisoning homosexuals).

Maybe that newly minted HHS Hitler Youth Corps will be going around the country starting on Jan lst to snuff out what they consider people using too much health care. Politicans, muslims, unions, gays, welfare parasites will all be exempted because they don´t pay the bill for Barry´s utopian non-health care.

#18, actually, no. Notice that this practice is being exposed and that the average person is horrified and angered by the Liverpool Pathway being prescribed for their elderly or infant loved ones without their knowledge or permission. Pressure is being brought to bear to change the situation.

In the US we´re going to copy the same dreadful treatment (or lack of) before too much longer.

University of East London bans segregated
Muslim event from its premises
Telegraph [UK], by Damian Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/17/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
