    Make it legal and most of us will do it ourselves.

    How many people think there is an unlimited supply of public money to extend the lives of their grandparents for a few years?

    Some people would burn through that very quickly and our bleeding-heart liberal friends would be right back at their marxist solution trough.

    Do you think it's more humane to put a pillow over someone's face, electrocute them, or cut them off from "other people's money" and allow them to freeze to death on the cold mean streets.

    Seriously, the choice is yours. Which one would you like?
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey

    So, I guess no republicans take a check fro da gub'ment? Oh, when they're on disability, they really need it, unlike those silly marxist libs.

    Ooooo....the scary 'death panels.'

    Republicans need to make up their minds about what they stand for.

    Actually, I care quite a bit about other people. I just don't wear it on my sleeve or use it as a moral bat to bludgeon people who disagree with me politically.

    The third choice is by far the most humane, imho.

    If you are cold and freezing to death on the street, whose fault is that, yours or mine?
