Just had this exact talk at work yesterday...about time we let people end their lives with dignity!

This isn't as big as teaching evolution or legal abortion, but it is another thing that will drive fundies a little bit more batshiat.  Irritating fundies is always good.

fta:
We refuse to allow animals to suffer yet we are committed to making sure people die naturally no matter how much misery they must endure.

often, the person is kept alive unnaturally.

/ I have no problem with assisted suicide.  I believe it may have been done for my grandfather.  basically, the doctor or nurse asked do you want more morphin until, it was, do you really want more morphin?  cut his life short by maybe 10 hours of immeasurably suffering.

Great. Slowly things move forward.

I only hope Canada catches up on this one soon (though it will almost certainly have to go through the courts as no government will touch the issue).

Snow is weak this year if you are going for the skiing, Durango and Telluride may be better options and sweet drive.

A culture truly shows that it has no respect for human life when it stops forcing terminally ill individuals with no hope of recovery to prolong an existence of suffering with no quality of life for as long as is medically possible.
 
2014-01-22 11:20:42 AM
New Mexico is indeed pretty, and if you're lucky, you'll live somewhere there with a good view and far enough away from everyone else in the state that you don't have to interact them.

Subby, I hope to prove you wrong.

Wanted to the check out santa fe this year.  And isn't there a crazy balloon festival there?
 
2014-01-22 11:24:29 AM
Faced with terminal illness and significant suffering, we don't even have the legal right to end our pain in most parts of the country. For animals it's humane; for humans it's a capital offense.


Sums it up.

Ain't much snow up in The Valley this year, according to my family out there. Maybe they're making some. Not sure about Anglefire, but I imagine it's similarly warm and dry.

But if you go, try the green chili at the Taos Inn, and have a burger at Five Star. The Ally Cantina is a good place for a blackout drinking session, and last time I was there they had a couple pool tables and a shuffleboard table.

I usually head out there in the late summer / early fall. Better weather, also chili season.

Don't some states criminalize suicide?
So if you attempt suicide and fail, you could go to jail?

No, it's in Albuquerque

Though if you don't get a reservation soon enough you'll have to stay in Santa Fe.

Oh yeah, fark you subby.

We honeymooned in Taos and liked it so much we decided to relocate to Albuquerque. We survived for 18 months before we decided NM was not the place for us.

One Friday night, I stopped in a gas station in Espanola on my way up from burqe to taos. I forget why. Maybe my kid needed milk or something.

It was crowded as shiat, and from what I could tell, not everyone was interested in gas or supplies. There were people just hanging out.

I had to choke back the urge to yell "WHO RUN BARTERTOWN?".

Rights don't work like that. Rights come from your own efforts. If somebody else is obligated to cooperate or provide assistance, then that thing isn't a right, it's a privilege.

It's not a matter of semantics. You don't have the right to levitate. You don't have the right to do anything that you cannot achieve. At best, you have the right to attempt the impossble, but not the right to do the impossible.

Mmmm, I love New Mexico. We spent our 20th anniversary in the Earthships. Met so many wonderful people in Taos. Previously I had visited Santa Fe and toured that part of the state staying in everything from cabins in the mountains to youth hostels. I would love to live there, but it's too far away from our families, so I have to be content visiting whenever I can.

Some pretty shiatty planning going on there on several levels of government. A couple decades ago I was seriously considering leaving Canada for New Mexico for a hospital job. I could never get over the drop dead amazing scenery. It's a goddamned shame what happened to the state.
