Pangea: because a doctor has to sign that form.

"Who Signs It?
According to the National Association of Medical Examiners about 20 percent of all death certificates are signed by a coroner or a medical examiner. Since autopsy rates have plummeted in hospitals, death investigators now perform the majority of the nation's autopsies, which remain a vital barometer for revealing causes that might otherwise have been missed. In 2007, the latest data available from the CDC, 201,000 autopsies were performed, accounting for just 8 percent of all deaths.
Others who can sign a death certificate include a primary physician, an attending physician, a non-attending physician, a medical examiner, a nurse practitioner, a forensic pathologist or a coroner, but it varies according to state law. In Texas, for example, a justice of the peace can sign. Typically, deaths have to be recorded with local health departments within 72 hours of the death, and to the state within five to seven days."

That's just a dead ambassador and some marines or seals or something or other. CHRISTIE'S REPUBLICAN, DAMMITALL.

Gee, that sounds awful bad. You think someone is going to look into that to find out what went wrong?

So you are saying they are not blaming him because it really wasn't his fault??

kindms: So we have political revenge because the Mayor of Fort Lee a democrat didn't want to back a republican for Gov. against his party etc. So Christie's folks shut down the ramps to the GW Bridge and cause a bunch of BS to a bunch of people that had nothing to do with either of them, Had kids getting to School at 11AM instead of 8 or 9 and causing traffic nightmares for anyone trying to get over the bridge. They then stonewalled when the folks from across the bridge in NY wanted answers. Cuomo was getting stonewalled as well and none of this came out until subpoenas started getting sent out


Bring up what I consider to be the first rule of human conduct. When you see someone do something shiaty to someone else, if you stick around eventually they'll do it to you too. Christie and his toadies do stuff like this? Well if people want more of it and harder, keep voting for the man.

CSB(though not mine)

A friend of mine has a similar set up to you at his job. One day, he meant to post a "You be trollin" type image on whatever board he was on at the time, and accidentally included it in an email he was writing to his boss. His boss responded a couple minutes with "If you like your job, you will come to my office. Now." My friend panicked and practically ran to his bosses's office. When he got there, his boss unleashed a can of silly string at him. My friend stood there confused for a moment, at which point his boss said "You said I'm a troll, so I figured I'd troll you. Now get back to work and next time pay more attention to which web window is open."

/end CSB
//yes, he still works there


Sounds like an awesome boss he's got.

TheIndependent: In any event, WSJ actually had it right when they said, "Compared to using the IRS against political opponents, closing traffic lanes is jaywalking."


So, did the Wall Street Journal provide any accompanying PROOF that Obama, or his closest aides, had used the IRS to Fark with his political opponents?   Because, from everything I have read - there's never been a scintilla of actual evidence provided that showed this was the case.

What I have seen is that ALL groups of that nature were getting a thorough examination to make sure they weren't engaged in partisan political activities as their primary activity as they would not be in compliance with the Federal Statute.  It seems like pretty much ALL such groups got "singled" out (a non-sequitur) for such review and testimony established that this treatment originated with a former Bush appointee as part of an overall process to weed out those who didn't actually qualify for that particular status with the IRS.

Now, if anyone can point to any proof to show otherwise I would appreciate it, otherwise STOP with the farking unsubstantiated claims already.

~~It's like this. A dead plaintiff is rarely worth as much as a living, severely-maimed plaintiff. However, if it's a long slow agonizing death, as opposed to a quick drowning or car wreck, the value can rise considerably. A dead adult in his 20s is generally worth less than one who is middle aged. A dead woman less than a dead man. A single adult less than one who's married. Black less than white. Poor less than rich. The perfect victim is a white male professional, 40 years old, at the height of his earning power, struck down in his prime. And the most imperfect? Well, in the calculus of personal injury law, a dead child is worth the least of all.
-A Civil Action


As a white male professional who turns forty this year, I'm...not sure how I feel about this

She was 91. She was in cardiac arrest. There's not a whole hell of a lot you can do about it. Her body wouldn't have healed from the trauma of CPR even if they were able to get a ROSC. She probably wouldn't have lived for more than a few hours ....excuse me....her heart would have probably stopped beating again afyer a few hours anyway.
I'm glad this family isn't being cocksucking assholes. Clearly the aren't Teabagging Republicans.
Not sure why they were transporting unless she arrested en route.....nope it was an unattended death. Still not sure why they transported.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Pangea: DROxINxTHExWIND: You're really saying, "meh" to the possibility that a woman died because paramedics could not reach her....even as you acknowledge the possibility that she could have been saved. It's pretty ridiculous.

The paramedics did reach her. They couldn't revive her at her house. She was dead then. They couldn't get her dead body back to the hospital for the official ruling of "dead" because a doctor has to sign that form.

If there was any chance that she was "holding on, fighting through" they could have summoned a helicopter to lifeflight her while stuck on the bridge.  They didn't get caught in traffic trying to get to her for the emergency call. Is that unclear?

You might as well be screaming for an investigation into the paramedics, in case they were unable to recognize signs of life in a non-responsive, 91 year old who just had a massive heart-attack and couldn't be revived.


I like the use of adjectives to drive home the point that there was absolutely NOTHING that could have been done differently and NOTHING that would have changed this woman's fate. You all claim to know that for a fact. But according to you, even if she could have been revived had they gotten to her earlier, fark it because she's 91 and the family wants it all to go away. I'm also impressed with the number of Farkers who seem to have intimate knowledge of her wishes to die unless she had a certain quality of life and your ability to predict how she would have lived, had she been saved.

DFWTCU: So.... Death Panels by traffic jams?  BRILLIANT!


It's much more than that.

Thanks to the NSA, Obama was well aware of the bridge closing prior to it occurring. He had his Chicago thugs ready for when the traffic jam started. (At this point he had already bought off the relatives taking care of her) Once the traffic jam started the thugs moved in and took her out. Why you ask? The Obama Administration and Democrats fear C.C. more than anything. They knew the bridge situation would cause problems for him and wanted to make sure it would cause big problems. What better way to take out your most feared enemy than pinning a tragic death on him on top of a scandal. It's the Chicago way. It should also be noted that the bouquet of flowers the woman was holding in her casket contained a single Arugula leaf.

I think the party already has the rabies. It needs the other type of shot.

You forgot where they sold guns to Mexica drug dealers in order to hide his real birth certificate because it was kept in a safe in Benghazi and the attack onn the Embassy was really done by Tea Party Patriots to liberate it

Has anyone pointed out that these folks live in Closter, NJ? They probably own the printing plant that prints money to lend to God. A lawsuit that will drag their names into the media isn't worth it for them. Besides, even if they win another few million dollars, where they gonna go? Alpine?
