The Guiding Light of Liberal Logic

FROM STEVE H. COMES THIS Comment on Snatching the Trivial from the Profound

With the guiding light of liberal logic shining bright in this case, we can now see clearly how to move forward.

There is another such case. She has been brain damaged since birth, evidenced by a persistent lateral gaze to the left, consistent with a diagnosis of severe brain trauma. She is paralyzed and kept alive only by a feeding tube. Though she is capable of some movement, there is no evidence to support a conclusion that these movements are purposeful, but rather are likely only reflexive and spastic movements caused by ectopic activity. In other words, it does not appear to be the brain that informs these activities, but local muscle activity alone. It may be disputed whether she is terminally ill, but examination recently conducted by experts illustrate that her general health is poor and likely deteriorating.

Some interested parties believe she could improve with adequate rehabilitation, but on the whole, there is no foundation in scientific fact to support such a conclusion. Further evaluation might give an improved picture of her condition and prognosis for recovery, but with the Schiavo case as precedent, we do not believe this to be necessary or appropriate.

“She” is the United Nations, and it is now time that the United States remove her feeding tube, stopping the flow of life-sustaining cash into her bowels so she can experience the blissful and dignified death by starvation she deserves.

Let us also hasten to remove the "life support" of social security, medicare, medicaid and welfare from those who are only kept alive by these extraordinary means. After all, who would want to live like that?

At last we can hunt down the last of the endangered species, that languish and continue to suffer with no real hope of recovery, kept from extinction only by our extraordinary means.

Finally, we can stop worrying about famine-swept Africa. We now know our past efforts to bring food to those poor people was misguided; we only kept them from the bliss of starvation.

It is also comforting to know that it is okay with liberals for the execution of death-row inmates to move forward, unimpeded by the appeals process.

What infallible logic the left has. Welcome to Logan's Run.
