I have sent one last telegram to Jeb Bush:

"It appears that Congress's subpoenas have expired. The hearing is scheduled for April 6, by which time Terri Schiavo will certainly be dead.
If you value right action, if you value human life, if you value the support and votes of millions of disabled Americans and their families, then use your legal power of executive clemency to save Terri Schiavo now. We will not forget your support. Save Terri now."

I deffinately think we all need to keep fighting for Terri. I am just very concerned as to what is going on when Gov. Bush has all of the information in this case and many offers from constitutional legal professionals and still allows a circut court judge to order him as well as the DCF to stand down! I can't help feeling that there is still much more in this case that we don't know.

During the interview on CNN the Revrend made the comment that if a circut court judge made a judgement that stopped black people from attending University in his jurisdiction the Govenor would be all over it and not making the claim that he can't go against a court rulling. He's absolutely right! That has already happened in past history.

Something else is going on. We don't know all of the facts. There are still too many unaswered questions. I believe we have the right to demand the answers!

I've been writing everybody and his brother (ahem), anybody in any position of authority in Washington and Florida, writing alot, since that's all I can do from here in Arizona.

But I too noticed how strange Gov. Bush's claims to helplessness are, in light of all the constitutional scholars, lawyers, judges, and law enforcement people, who have weighed in that he DOES have the constitutional power to intervene.

So I don't know what is really going on either, but I'll tell you, I finally got fed up and wrote to Gov. Bush suggesting that if he really feels he can't "legally" go in, then he should answer to the higher law, just do what is RIGHT, Save Terri, and then resign his office.

==========

I won't forget this failure to act by EITHER of the Bush brothers.

Is there a way to telegram or hand deliver a letter to Jeb Bush?

Posted by: sujata at March 28, 2005 7:07 PM

Telegrams can be sent at http://www.westernunion.com ($14.99) or http://www.usatelegram.com (more expensive).

You know, I wonder if we ought to be mentioning to Governor Bush that since he basically is saying (my opinion) that he is nothing more than a PUPPET of the Florida Courts and Greer in particular, we will therefore urge friends and family NEVER to travel to Florida or move there. Why should anyone go to Florida? In my opinion, Florida is UNSAFE. Consider the facts: A judge hands a sentence of dehydration and starvation to an innocent person. He then orders that anyone trying to do the HUMANE thing and give her a glass of water be arrested! Even CHILDREN. The police, part of the Executive Branch, bow to Greer's (part of the Judicial branch) order. In my opinion, Florida is simply UNSAFE.

Posted by: sujata at March 28, 2005 8:08 PM

got it, thanks

I just sent the telegram, thansk mary.

Let;s create a storm, ask for oral feeding of Terri, this would change public opinion. How can any half decent person (except Greer) deny oral feeding of a human being.

Posted by: sujata at March 28, 2005 8:26 PM

Ummmm....

So, just how come the MARSHALLS are protecting Judge Greer from "harm" (possible death threats), but they haven't been sent in to protect Terri from "harm" (absolute ordered death)... just who had the AUTHORITY to send the Marshalls to Greer but NOT to Terri?
