Sad But True

There are ten easy steps to becoming a fascist state and the United States is using all of them. Naomi Wolf lays out the facts and follows them up with examples . If you are interested, which most Americans aren't, the article can be found here. The only question left to be answered is, which jail am I going to be in?

Popped out his penis and cut it off. In a crowded restaurant. Now he's being evaluated for his mental health status. Any guesses as to what they will decide?

I did a shift at the San Diego Hospice (awesome place) and one of the doctors was vehemently against assisted suicide. She felt that all terminally ill people needed was proper pain management. Well, it's ten years later and I wonder what her opinion is now that the Bush administration has made it a practice to prosecute doctors for helping patients to manage pain. It's easy for those who don't have chronic pain to not understand how it controls your life and that the person can operate normally with extremely high doses in their system. This is just one more example of the destruction of the patient/doctor relationship. The government is now in the business of practicing medicine. Without proper training. Must be an intelligent design thing. Whatever. It's stupid and dangerous.

Once again comic books are ahead of their time. White kryptonite was found in a cave in Siberia. And somebody has already adjusted the Wikipedia entry.
