Why not shoot skydivers wearing Loughner masks?  That would be therapeutic.

So, instead of going to the Tucson memorial, where folks paid their respects to the people that were killed, including a small child, she went skydiving?

Show some respect, Gabbie. This didn't just happen to you. If you're wanting to show how grateful you are to be alive, fine. Go skydiving on your birthday. Go skydiving on your wedding anniversary. Don't rub in in the faces of the victims families that you get to do all the things their loved ones can't. Come on, Gabbie. That's obvious to anyone with half a bra-, oh.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: So, is she pretty much back to normal, or what? Has she done any interviews or anything since the incident? Or is she getting Weekend-at-Bernie'd around by her handlers or photo ops and shiat?


My understanding is she's still got speech problems and walking problems; at a guess from the symptoms displayed, she's likely got very slight actual brain injury (i.e./ can still think 100% or near enough), but the parts that control fine muscle control on one side are a bit fried, so she's almost paralysed on that side, like with a stroke victim;

Not explaining that well but you get whatI'm saying.  She's all there up top, but it's a little un-photogenic to watch/hear her speak.  Otherwise I'm pretty sure a) she'd still be in front-line politics and b) she'd probably be contesting the nomination versus Hilary next time around.  Would have loved to have seen that - she was quite the darling of the party for a while, so she'd have been a very interesting candidate.  And of course, two women contesting the nomination for the Dems, and the usual old boring white man for the Reps would have been hilarious to watch...

No, Gabby is still working hard on improving her speech and strengthening her right side. Language comprehension - written and spoken - is just fine. Speech production is slowly improving. Writing is difficult.
Yes, but she rarely makes public appearances.
No, and that's an assholish thing to write.

Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane requires a "special" type of person. Oopsie should I not have gone there?

There's an old submarine saying. "There are a hell of a lot more airplanes in the water than there are submarines in the air". Hour for hour I'd much rather take my risks underwater in a 2"+ thick steel tube surrounded by things that might kill me in an instant than fly around in something made out of thin aluminum that has a propensity to fall out of the sky on a regular basis. At least my last words won't be "AHHHHHHHHHH! *gasp* AHHHHHHHH! *gasp* AHHHHHHHH!" and that's just the first 100 feet.

\actually, good for her for getting on with her life.

I was there that day after the fact and even though I didn't agree with the majority of what the Congresswoman stood for I was shaken to the core knowing that one of the persons we elected to represent their American people had been targeted and hit, possibly fatally.

That being said I must say that the way her husband and certain interest groups have used that poor woman disgust me. She is a shell of her former self and mentally is farked yet her husband and interest groups have used her and coached her to fill their own goals, politically and or personally be they for financially gain or political gain.

I wish a fiery hell if there is such a thing on those that used and abused this poor woman's tragedy for personal gain, which seems to be the case with anything relating to this poor woman when we hear anything about her.

Well, I'm surprised she was able to exercise that freedom.  Since nothing good comes out of skydiving, and families with a skydiver in the home are 900 million times more likely to have skydiving kill a family member than homes that are skydiver free, banning it would be the common sense thing to do.

dropdfun: She is a shell of her former self and mentally is farked yet her husband and interest groups have used her and coached her to fill their own goals, politically and or personally be they for financially gain or political gain.

 Eh. She seems more like someone who isn't able to communicate what she is thinking, though she thinks clearly, than someone who is actually mentally out of it. There are questions, behaviors, that are out of place with someone who is actually farked, versus someone who just has a communication error between the brain and the mouth/hands.
/grandma had a brain aneurysm in '94 followed by Alzheimer's before her death last year. Not a doctor, but that's quite a bit of experience with what degrading mental ability looks like.

You're still counting to potato, I see.

Who is profiting from this?
Her husband is retired military. She is from a well-to-do family.
Gabby was my representative. And state senator.
She supports Amendment II. Are you seriously objecting to her position that criminals and the mentally ill should not have ready access to firearms?

The ignorant and reactionary are always happy to instruct others as to how they should live their lives, and what they should believe. Theye refuse to accept that anyone who disagrees with them could have a legitimate point of view, legitimately arrived at. They aren't a part of the dialogue, and can safely be ignored.

And you claim they are being taken advantage of, why?  Just to demean the most important goals in their lives?

The fact that they were being flown from political speech to political speech and positioned on stage like props, for starters.


You mean in a manner intended to cleverly simulate , uh........people? On a, uh.................speaking tour?
I see.

GoldSpider: Alphax: GoldSpider: dropdfun: I was there that day after the fact and even though I didn't agree with the majority of what the Congresswoman stood for I was shaken to the core knowing that one of the persons we elected to represent their American people had been targeted and hit, possibly fatally.

That being said I must say that the way her husband and certain interest groups have used that poor woman disgust me. She is a shell of her former self and mentally is farked yet her husband and interest groups have used her and coached her to fill their own goals, politically and or personally be they for financially gain or political gain.

I wish a fiery hell if there is such a thing on those that used and abused this poor woman's tragedy for personal gain, which seems to be the case with anything relating to this poor woman when we hear anything about her.

See also: the Sandy Hook parents.

You know what's more disgusting?  People implying that Gabby Giffords and the Sandy Hook parents aren't doing what they want to be doing.  Now that's demeaning.

People in emotional states are easier to take advantage of. Sorry you didn't get the memo.


Can you prove they've been taken advantage of? What of the parents that have formed their own groups?

What you really hate is that there are real victims of the policies you prefer and they're speaking against your politics.

You know, Gabby is not to shabby herself, I wouldn't mind being the meat in that sandwich.

I hope she is continuing to make progress in her recovery. It was difficult to see her struggle with her speech the last time I saw her speak. It is very strange to think what it must be like to know exactly what you want to say, but being physically unable to make the words come out.
 
2014-01-09 09:12:50 AM  
Obviously what was done to her was horrible... I'm glad she's recovered...

... but...

People promote weird people to herodom.

Getting shot makes you a hero? If you're a rich white woman of course... and then do rich people sports like jumping out planes makes you more a hero?


Glad she is better... but seriously... she's not a hero... just someone who was unfortunately shot.

Actually, I think that those who regard her as a hero do so because of her monumental efforts to recover, and the hardships she endured, while still striving to do something she believes to be socially useful
Such efforts are frequently, normally, and customarily described as "heroic", and the use of the term is both appropriate and correct in this istance.
Of course, while it doesn't really need saying - nobody thinks she is a hero for "getting shot".

I wonder if her doctor cleared her to do that, because changes in altitude and pressure can cause some complications for people who have survived brain injuries.

Kome: I wonder if her doctor cleared her to do that, because changes in altitude and pressure can cause some complications for people who have survived brain injuries.


I would figure, given her high profile, that the skydiving place wanted some kind of doctor's note or clearance before letting her go up.  Even if they don't normally ask (or make you sign a contract stating that you're good to go and accept all responsibility for it), they would not want to be associating with harming her in any way (outside of the normal risk of skydiving).

I am so sorry that you were forced to click on the link and read the story about her skydiving. I am sorry that you are being compelled against your wishes to participate in a Fark thread discussion about Mrs. Giffords. I truly am. If only... if only there was a way the Internet worked such that you only arrived at websites that were better suited for your particular mental states, e.g. funny sites when you want a joke, news or reference sites when you want information, game sites when you want entertainment, etc. I know it is a lot to ask of the engineers and computer scientists these days, but I hope, for your sake, one day in the future the Internet will allow you -- nay, all of us -- to be able to be exposed to only things that we are interested in.
