It isn’t my place to decide whether Nancy Pelosi remains a Catholic in good standing with the Church itself (or even with God), but it is very difficult not to take note of her very defiant attitude and willingness to show the world how she thinks “she” can pick and choose who speaks for the Church and who defines the rules. Does she perhaps think she has some specially authority to by-pass and denounce the Church’s teachings, when they are an inconvenience to her agenda and in the way of the goals set forth by her and her pals?
Even the average person, not touched with enlightenment, should be able to see and comprehend that the Catholic church is not attempting to take contraceptives away from the women of the world. The church is saying, it shouldn’t be forced to pay for something it feels is immoral and goes against its teachings. What part of this reality and truth is so difficult to comprehend by the ever so brilliant ones?
We don’t need the president or Sharpton or Jessie Jackson suggesting the majority of people cared less because the life lost in the Trayvon Martin shooting was that of an African-American youth. That suggestion is a lie. Perhaps it is intentional to keep the groups of people separated. Divide and conquer?
There are calls from the Left for race riots if George Zimmerman is not prosecuted for the shooting of Trayvon Martin. This isn’t a call for justice, this is outright blackmail and a demand for “special treatment” and all before anyone even knows what the special prosecutor has decided or what the evidence — EVIDENCE — has shown to be the most likely truth of that fateful day.
I woke up to hearing President Barack Obama saying that if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon, the young man who was killed in Florida by a Neighborhood Watchman. You know what? We should want to see the same thorough investigation regardless of the skin color of the victim, or who he might have looked like.
It was a nightmare that Sara Harvey, and those such as she, must endure on a daily basis. A nightmare of facing cold, dark decisions forced upon them. A nightmare that destroys every hope that might have been, or happens to briefly visit. in their journey of fighting the abuse in behalf of a loved one sucked into the poison of a broken system. A system that was meant to assist, but instead has come to hideously feast upon its unsuspecting prey.
Who is calling the shots in the case of the disabled man, Gary Harvey? It seems his wife has been shut out by the system. Maybe… just maybe… someone is making a buck or two that shouldn’t have been made? Perhaps that is the secret life possibility of the Gary Harvey case that the court [...]
When you exchange wedding vows with your spouse, you probably have serious commitments to stand by each other in mind, in sickness and in health. But when the state intervenes, sometimes you don’t get what you expect. Everyone, but especially those who love their spouses, family and friends, needs to take Sara & Gary Harvey’s plight quite seriously. Don’t think it couldn’t happen to you. Think instead… how will you feel when it does?
It is mind blogging how some people are so ready to suggest the plug should be pulled on others. What if the pluggee doesn’t want the plug pulled? Pull it anyway? Unfortunately, sometimes those in charge of these live and death situations have little contact with reality and their attempts at justification leave you wondering just what in the world they’re thinking.
Sara Harvey is the Horseheads, NY woman who is desperately fighting to get her husband Gary home. Gary fell down the basement steps at his home in January 2006 and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Since the accident, Gary has been basically isolated and allowed only restricted (and very limited) visitation from his wife and friends. The following is what I imagine Sara might be thinking.
Tragically, Gary Harvey of Horsehead, NY fell down the basement stairs inanuary of 2006 and received a traumatic head injury. Sara Harvey, Gary’s wife, is desperately fighting to get him home. One can only wonder how much he knows of what is going on around him. The following could be what he is thinking as he lays alone in that room, so isolated from the world he knew and the wife and friends he so loves.
Judges beyond reproach with no challenges allowed? Perhaps once upon a time, but maybe not so much anymore. Maybe the challenges are now being taken seriously and will be taken even more seriously in the days to come! It’s time for justice to prevail for one and all in all courts under all circumstances!
Like many other unsuspecting souls, Mary G. Sykes has found herself under the control of a system she didn’t sign up for and hadn’t supposed would be getting involved in her life and affairs. Instead, her wants have been deemed irrelevant and thus ignored by a system that was meant to protect — not imprison, strip away the rights and drain the assets of the vulnerable among us.
Guardianships are like adoptions in that it is the obligation of the guardian to look out for the ward he has been put in charge of. Unlike adoptions, the guardian is supposed to act on behalf of the ward and make decisions as the ward would make for self if capable. And then there is the attorney to insure the rights of the ward. So, where has Kevin Moshier (the appointed attorney) been when Gary Harvey’s wishes have been trampled upon?
How long has it been since Gary Harvey fell down those basement stairs? How long has it been since he found himself vulnerable and fighting not only for life just because of his injuries, but fighting for life because the government officials and so-called ethic’s committees decided it was time to end his life by starving and dehydrating him to death? Just how long has it been and what has changed since the fight began all those years ago?
It could be fun to watch Donald Trump as president, firing a bunch of czars that should never have been. I wonder if that would be televised for us to see? I don’t know what kind of president that Donald Trump would make, but I am enjoying his involvement thus far. I’m thinking that he can do what normal candidates can’t. He can ask questions. He can stir the pot.
Gary Harvey is the brain injured man from New York, who seems to have his own private “death panel” determined to kill him off and to make his and his wife’s life as miserable as possible, until the sentence is carried out. Here it is the holiday season of 2010 and Sara Harvey gets a letter from Bryan Maggs, Chemung County Attorney, stating that her visitations with Gary is suspended immediately–the same holiday gift they offered last year.
Who is accountable? Who is immune? How much does it cost to have a chance to win? Or, is the game rigged and the poor (or disfavored) need not apply? Does it matter who (or what) is right? Or is it a matter of who is on what side and how much money and manpower [...]
Over and over and over again, we hear how fear mongers and wing-nuts are falsely claiming there are “death panels” where death panels do not exist. Keith Olbermann goes so far as to claim that rather than death panels, there are “life panels.” He just doesn’t seem to get it that not everyone’s experience is like the one he had with his father’s passing, where his father’s wishes were upheld. Olbermann just doesn’t seem to get it that some people, instead, get to find out just how real the “death panel” concept is and has been for some time now.
The mention of global warming nearly always takes me to thoughts of the healthcare issue being played out on the Washington, DC playground. A playground that seems to have more than its fair share of bullies strutting around. Bullies that seem to think we are simply to take their word for whatever the issue, but especially global warming [...]

By Carrie K. Hutchens It’s been confirmed. Judge Judith O’Shea sealed the records in the Gary Harvey case. William R. Shaw, Sara Harvey’s attorney, confirmed the court sealed the records and said neither he nor Sara could “reveal the documents filed in this matter, nor can the Court Clerk.” He could, however, say [...]
By Carrie K. Hutchens The holidays are fast approaching and Gary Harvey isn’t home yet. Why not? The wheels of justice turn slowly? Someone needs to get out the grease because this situation has gone beyond unreasonable, illogical, irresponsible and control-freak mode. It’s unacceptable! In review: “This is a [...]
by Carrie K. Hutchens The headlines seem full of road rage murders and men and women killing their mates and babies, as though we, as a society, have walked through a dark door into a realm where there is no value left on life. Then comes the headline of all headlines. The headline not expected. [...]
by Carrie K. Hutchens It was a day in court like any other day, or was it? The Corning Leader’s John Zick and Star Gazette’s Ray Finger reported on the September 17, 2009 Gary Harvey hearing. A hearing that sees a county fighting desperately to hold onto Gary Harvey, though the reasons behind their desperation [...]
