There is no dignity in that government-supported death. Let God pass you through the vale, not some bureaucrat in a white coat.

Sappy story but making the decision that is God's alone to make is not a smart thing to do.

On the other hand if one considers the cost of the state of keeping them alive and in not a good State either I don't think their decision was all that bad. Mind you I wouldn't do it, but it worked for them, and maybe God told them to do it -- that part you'll never know.

She decided to kill herself - - when the Dutch courts would not allow her to change her last name - - from Van Agt-Krekelberg to Streep. 93 years as Van Agt-Krekelberg was more than enough.

I realize that we live in a world that accepts this method of death, but I just cannot embrace it. Maybe if I was 91 and in deteriorating health, I would see it differently. I hope not.

I'm sorry but I must be blunt. These suicides are Madame Bovary. They fantasize of a romantic departure Of their own choosing, where they remain beautiful like still life, admired and envied by the lessers they leave behind in the mortal coil. But the reality is far different. Their last act on Earth actually is not to drink the poison but to soil themselves. Slacklawed, their bodies lay inert, now helpless to ensure dignity from anybody including their handlers who cared nothing for their lives still less for their lifeless forms. And of course, all at once they realize they have not in fact ended their lives for they have no power to do so. They did not create themselves, they cannot end themselves. What will happen to our eternal souls when we discover that the only thing before us is The One Thing Necessary? And if somehow that "Thing," that Person, just has nothing that I want, where will we go? Where will we go when Heaven itself seems like suffering to us? So we then learn that we are powerless to end our own suffering as well. We must never stop praying for these poor deluded souls.

#5~ “...maybe God told them to do it...” / Respectfully and emphatically disagree, but do understand compassion. Scripture is the inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21). The Commandment, “Thou shalt not murder” means just that so it is not likely that God would tell anyone to murder one’s self or to murder others. Inerrant means authoritative, flawless, foolproof, infallible. In Martin Luther’s “Large Catechism” his teaching on the Seventh Petition of “The Lord’s Prayer” explains praying for deliverance from evil. (Capitalization emphasis added.) 112] But deliver us from evil. Amen. 113] In the Greek text this petition reads thus: Deliver or preserve us from the Evil One, or the Malicious One; and it looks as if He were speaking of the devil, as though He would comprehend everything in one, so that the entire substance of all our prayer is directed against our chief enemy. For it is he who hinders among us everything that we pray for: the name or honor of God, God's kingdom and will, our daily bread, a cheerful good conscience, etc. 114] Therefore we finally sum it all up and say: Dear Father, pray, help that we be rid of all these calamities. 115] But there is nevertheless also included whatever evil may happen to us under the devil's kingdom-poverty, shame, death, and, in short, all the agonizing misery and heartache of which there is such an unnumbered multitude on the earth. For since THE DEVIL is not only a liar, but also a murderer, he CONSTANTLY SEEKS OUR LIFE, and wreaks his anger whenever he can afflict our bodies with misfortune and harm. Hence it comes that he often breaks men's necks or drives them to insanity, drowns some, AND INCITES MANY TO COMMIT SUICIDE, and to many other terrible calamities. 116] Therefore there is nothing for us to do upon earth but to pray against this arch-enemy without ceasing. For unless God preserved us, we would not be safe from him even for an hour. (Snip)

#7~ “The karma is hideous.” / The fate of suicide victims is known only to God; it is God alone who knows “the spiritual condition of an individual upon death.” Whether God holds these people responsible or not is not known to mortal man. Although the Commandment “Thou shalt not murder” is clear, perhaps victims of suicide may be judged in a manner different than those who would willfully take the life or lives of others.

In March 2023, Robert Kennedy, Jr. announced on Twitter that the Biden Administration had still not provided his campaign with Secret Service protection.

Nearly two dozen Senate Republicans thumbed their noses at colleges and constituents by joining with Democrats to pass a massive $95 billion foreign aid bill. Adding insult to injury, a final vote of 70-29 with 22 Republicans in favor pushed through the bill that pours American taxpayer money into aid for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan while doing nothing to secure the U.S. border. With more than half of Senate Republicans voting against it during the overnight session, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was clear he placed no value on their arguments. He led the minority of 22 GOP lawmakers to hold hands with Democrats and get the bill passed. even delivering

San Diego Border Patrol agents have faced an untenable flood of Chinese migrants sneaking over the border each day, raising fears over the growing influence of the hostile state in the US. Border sources claim that 269 Chinese migrants were apprehended by CBP officials in a single day this week, according to Fox News' Bill Melugin - with the number not including those who manage to cross undetected. Chinese nationals now make up the largest growing demographic of migrants crossing the porous US-Mexico border. And 2024 is already well on-track to easily exceed the staggering 37,000 Chinese migrants who were apprehended by the CBP in the 2023 fiscal year.

While Biden refused for the second year in a row to sit for a traditional Super Bowl interview, he did find time to sit for a ridiculous, fact-challenged lecture about how "big consumer brands" are ripping off shoppers. As RedState's Jennifer Van Laar reported, Biden's shtick was hilarious in its dishonesty from the outset. America, here's Joe— babbling about "shrinkflation."

Not only AOC and Bernie Sanders, but Biden warned Israel not go in because of the “humanitarian impact”. Israel went in and brought out two hostages. The IDF said it launched several airstrikes in Rafah as a diversion for the rescue operation. The rescue unit breached the building at 1:49 a.m. The force came down from the roof and detonated a bomb to breach a door on the second floor, eliminated the Hamas guards and picked up the two hostages.

New York City could soon ban Tide PODS and other laundry-detergent packs under the latest “green” push from lawmakers. The “Pods are Plastic Bill,” introduced by City Councilman James Gennaro last week, would make it illegal to sell any pods and laundry sheets if they’re made with polyvinyl alcohol. Fines for selling the pods would start at $400, double for a second violation and top off at $1,200 for flouting the rules more than twice, if the bill becomes law. The bill would also require education and outreach to businesses on the ban for the first year. The law wouldn’t take effect until Jan. 1, 2026, if passed.
