A Blast From The Past - The Carpenter - January 1909

Norman
“… When the wage-earner has reached the limit of his physical capacities, when his power to labor is exhausted and he had not the rare chance to accumulate a little fortune to live on in his old age, he has no other but to starve, or to go to the poorhouse, or else commit suicide.
Should the reader be in doubt as to this actually being the conditions confronting the incapacitated superannuated worker, then I would advise him to peruse the reports and periodical statements issued by our great life insurance companies. Statistical data presented in these publications will show the reader how insignificant is the number of wage-workers and persons engaged in small businesses enterprises who are so fortunate as to accumulate enough money to save themselves and family from deprivation after having gone through a protracted sickness, or after an accident has put an end to their existence. …”

Have things changed all that much in 115 years?

Overall, not substantially.

And the lack of change is intentional.

You just had to ask - didn't you Norman. Well here it is:

How to File a Complaint Under Section 1553:  Prohibition Against Discrimination for Refusal to Provide Assisted Suicide Services

If you wish to file a complaint under Section 1553, because you have suffered discrimination on the basis of your refusal to provide health care items or services for the purpose of causing, or assisting in causing, the death of an individual, such as by assisted suicide, euthanasia or mercy killing, you may file a complaint with OCR.  

We recommend that you use the Civil Rights Discrimination Complaint Form Package.  For a complaint under Section 1553, please check “Other” as the basis of the discrimination and write in “Section 1553 (Assisted Suicide).”

You can also request a copy of the complaint form from an OCR regional office. If you need help filing a complaint or have a question about the complaint or consent forms, please review our How to File a Complaint web page or email OCR at OCRMail@hhs.gov.

You can thank the Democrats and the idiots at the UBCJA International for endorsing the boob Barack Hussein Obama, not once mind you, but twice. BTW, 2014 less 1909 = 105 years not 115 years.

Wait until you see what all the fearless & alleged International Union Labor Leaders are going to do to your Pension Benefits. And if that doesn't make you go Republican or full blown Tea-Bagger; well nothing will and option 1 shall remain open to you or whomever you recommend.

The Obama Death Squads - kinda reminds one of Adolph Hitler and the mercy killing section is reminiscent of the practices of certain religious fanatics responsible for 9-11 & other atrocities around the globe. And yet, the a-ssholes in the Democratic party keep voting these clowns into office.
