When I was studying for my pilot’s license in 2001, my instructor, a retired F-15 pilot (who incidentally loved to teach me all sorts of things that are not normally covered in preparation for a solo), told me that if I couldn’t find a good place to land, that I should get as low and slow as I could and stall out right above the tree tops. I always wondered how that would work out. Now I know
Shocking, but not surprising. (If you are surprised, it’s a sign you’ve been deluding yourself). FWIW: Wearing a collar doesn’t make you Catholic.
But besides being patronizing, the Vatican’s statement is a gross distortion of the situation. It portrays the Gards as acting alongside the doctors, but subject to outside manipulation. The Gards are resisting the doctors. The Gards are not facing “their decisions.” They are facing authorities that have overridden them. The good bishop writes that the Gards “must be heard and respected, but they too must be helped to understand the unique difficulty of their situation.” The people “helping” them to understand are speaking in the euphemisms of “death with dignity.”

I admit it: ever since I was refused an attempted purchase of allergy OTC drugs, I get a little thrill every time I walk out with decongestant medicine.
When I shared this information shortly after the election, I was roundly criticized and ridiculed (and not just by the Left). Facts are stubborn things, though, and here is yet another credible report showing why insiders have long called the Democrats the “evil” party. (I assume there is no need to explain why the Republicans are known for being “stupid”).
P.S. The next time you ask yourself why there are Democrat-run cities that *want* to be called ‘sanctuary’ cities (such as Nashville), remember this article.
The findings are eye-opening. In 2008, as many as 5.7 million noncitizens voted in the election. In 2012, as many as 3.6 million voted, the study said.
In 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there were 21.0 million adult noncitizens in the U.S., up from 19.4 million in 2008. It is therefore highly likely that millions of noncitizens cast votes in 2016.
