LETTERS
Terrie Schiavo Used
By Lunatic Fringe

The Terrie Schiavo spectacle and tragedy - it has all become very clear now - at the end. Randall Terry is the spokesman for the Schindlers', Terrie's parents. Randall Terry has inflamed events surrounding the Schiavo situation from the beginning. Randall Terry is the leader of a lunatic fringe of anti-abortionists who said abortion doctors should be killed. Who is that out front, talking to the cameras, stirring up the protesters in front of Terrie Schiavo's hospice? Randall Terry. Terrie Schiavo's death watch has been used as a platform for anti-abortion politics, locally and nationally. Media missed the boat again.

Enzymes And Health
ABC newsman Peter Jennings has lung cancer. The cure. Enzymes are the key to radiant health. When you're young the body manufactures more than enough enzymes. As you grow older the body doesn't produce enough enzymes and you need to help it along. Live fresh fruits, vegetables, greens and sprouts are loaded with enzymes. Cooking kills enzymes.
Dr. Ann Wigmore and other medical professionals have done extensive experiments and have all come up with the same conclusions. Cancerous cells placed with cooked foods thrived. Cancerous cells placed with live fresh foods died. The key to radiant health are enzymes.
If I had cancer, Aids, some incurable disease, I would try changing my diet, "to live." As they say, the proof is in the pudding. Can't you just see the AMA, the medical establishment grabbing for their laptops - such blasphemy - why, because cancer, Aids, incurable diseases are big business.

Time To Come Home
Terrie dies: Now politicians and religious pontificators can't use and crucify her for their gains and agendas any longer. Would you like to have been kept alive in a vegetative state for 15 years to bankrupt your parents or children and become a trinket in the hands of the polarizing forces of America?
I am sure our Gracious God said to Terrie, it's time to come home and play in the bliss of true love. You've been used and exploited long enough.

Social Security "Reform" Losing Gas
Before President Bush started his "60 Stops in 60 Days" national sales pitch for Social Security overhaul polling showed that 54% of Americans approved of private accounts. Latest polls, 45 days into the campaign, show only 25% now support the private accounts concept. This is good news-the Bush juggernaut can be toned down and the truth be known.
But, a filibuster battle looms on the horizon. Senator Frist and Republican colleagues are gearing up to change Senate rules and shut down the use of the filibuster option. Bush can then pack the federal courts without objection from democrats. The judges he wants to saddle America with are committed ideologues who will have lifetime tenure. A bruising and all out battle is in the offing with the stakes being nothing less than muzzling the judiciary, legislating free speech and consolidation of power.

Religious Radicals Attack The Judiciary
Religious politics is rearing its ugly head again. Religious extremism within the Republican Party is attacking the US judiciary. President Bush says the White House won't get involved in the judiciary debate while Vice President Cheney comes out swinging. Tom Delay rages on.
We went through the Terrie Schiavo affair with evangelicals and fundamentalists mobilizing foot soldiers around the country in an effort to force their will on America, and now these same people are gearing up for an assault on the judicial process.
President Bush keeps appointing litmus tested, committed ideologues for the federal courts who put their own views ahead of the law. Democrats need to filibuster judicial nominees like these. But no, Tom DeLay and Bill Frist want to change the 200 year-old rules in the middle of the game. Have these two forgotten it is the job of the judiciary in this country to decide the constitutionality of law and not religious activists like themselves?
