Very selfish attitude.
« on: Dec 02, 2019, 07:27:40 AM »
A man wanted people executed at the end of their working lives as they are supposedly a waste of resources.
He does not think many are contributing to society as hospital volunteers for example helping young and old and they contribute to their families.
Obviously in most cases they have paid for their pensions so they are entitled to them.

Which man? Was he speaking on the radio, or on TV? Or perhaps he was in a secure unit somewhere...

If this man was in a pub in the morning perhaps he should have been the first one up against the wall.

There is obviously something wrong with me because I think that all retired people
(and I will exclude people who have moved directly from all their lives on the dole to a pension)
have contributed to the well being and comfort of those who come after that.

Therefore there is a debt of gratitude and respect.

We all know what the end is: death. But the way to death needs to be
made as gentle, dignified and honourable as possible: this means continued
support right up until the end.

This has been termed a "conservative outlook," with a small 'c'.

Nowadays it's called a 'pathway'. Basically, withdrawal of treatment and nutrition until you drop off the perch.

Really?

My Dad ate a very hearty supper and two glasses of wine and cracked jokes with us.

After supper he began to wander.

And at about 6 am in the morning he died.

B*ll*cks to "gradual withdrawal."  :)

My gran reached up to get a pan from the shelf, gave a little cry, and was dead before she hit the ground. Wish I could go like that.
He who laughs last never got the joke in the first place!

If only we had the choice! My ma in law was sitting in her chair watching tv when pa in law popped out. She died peacefully whilst he was out, the doc said it was as if she'd just dropped off to sleep. A shock for him and the family but I'd take the same.
