I think I agree. Since we all have to bow out anyway, it just seems that it would be nice to bow out with at least a little grace. I have to say that I "think" I agree because I have been at death's door when I thought my convictions were "when it's my time, it's my time", but when actually faced with death, found myself praying to stay alive.
Maybe this is something we really can't make a conviction on until the time comes. Still, I maintain a "do not resucitate" on my medical charts and still keep organ donor on my license so that if there is a chance of keeping me alive or harvesting something that someone else may need, those in charge will opt for the parts.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cure…Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV

I can imagine both the fear and the anger which might come from suddenly having a "stranger" sitting in your personal space (where you were sitting side by side with your sweetie just seconds before). There are times I think we are kinder to our animals by ending their misery gently than we are by keeping our relations around past the point of no return.
As I write this i'm pulling out my Nomex fire suit for the flaming I see coming!

Not much afraid of death either. I would like to stay on this side of the ground for a lot longer. Hate to think I would be a burden of someone. Maybe find me a bridge abutment somewhere.
It could be the air or the food we eat. Not much tastes the way grandma cooked.

If the insurance companies covered people for their health and their old age care they could do a good cost benefit analysis on medical treatment and may be more inclined to keeping people healthy as it costs less to care for the elderly if the elderly can manage most of their duties themselves.Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. —Mark Twain

Then again, this would only really work if government gets out of the insurance business by removing insurance regulations that protect insurance companies, let insurance companies that are mismanaged go bankrupt and set regulations on insurance companies that actually prevent insurance companies from raping the American worker nearly as bad as Congress rapes us.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cure…Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV
