Re: “Victim Support, Chaffetz' Vendetta, Assisted Suicide

I cared for my wife as she lost autonomy during her last 18 months. I learned that you can work on 4 hours sleep. The corporate promoters of assisted suicide now sell with feelings of fear of losing autonomy flying in the face of those living every day with loss of autonomy. This is insidious. This is why the secular left disability rights community is leading the resistance. They know these laws do not assure individual choice.
The medical standard of care established by the non transparent OR/WA euthanasia policy is an application of poison for anyone with feelings of concern about losing autonomy. This is documented by the OR/WA state reports. Now they propose 1 day turn around from diagnosis to death by poison in Hawaii.
That is the low bar of standard of care the corporate promoters of euthanasia want to establish for us all. That will put us all (all ages) at risk of exploitation by the medical industrial complex, human trafficking by predatory corporations, covert organ traffickers, predatory heirs and "new best friends" like Oregon's Thomas Middleton killers via the Oregon policy. This public policy is neither reasonable nor prudent rather it is insidious at best.
Respectfully,
Bradley Williams
President MTaas

Re: “Living in Utah, crashing into the Great Salt Lake and WHAT?

Interesting how the Des News seems to have the scoop on an alternative universe, where people keep crashing in the lake and require the National Guard to haul them out.
I was a firefighter for decades, and the area I covered included I-80 on the south end of the lake. In the time I worked out there, not once did I require help from the National Guard to help a patient. All I can figure is those Syracuse residents are getting hopped up on their dirty Diet Coke and crashing off the Antelope Island Causeway and being stuck under water.... wait, the water is so low they'd just land in the dirt.
Never mind.

Re: “The Trib vs. the Church

The Tribune knows that criticizing the church will get them the most views and comments, so they've turned into a gossip rag in an attempt to survive. It's great for Utah to have alternatives to church-owned media outlets, but when they don't strive for harmony they end up being preachy echochambers themselves.

Re: “Coal Country

Utahns need to quit blindly voting straight party ticket and realize too many legislators are wolves in sheep's clothing benefiting their own bank accounts. For now, it is not illegal in our state to have a conflict of interest and make laws that benefit the legislator in some way. Guess that's why they keep voting down any attempt at ethics reform. Too many of these guys (yes I said guys...status que), are self serving bastards and need to be sent out the door. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

Re: “Chaffetz on the Rise

Lets see, the Utah House GOP was willing to invest $30 Million for Utah Cares, coupled with a 70/30 split would be $100 Million total to help the poor adults with health care. The kids are already eligible. That wasn't enough. The Governor wanted Healthy Utah where the state would need $80 Million with the 90/10 split, but the $80 Million wasn't funded. UtahAccess+ funds the $80 Million with the $30 Million from the state and $50 million from the health care providers, as new taxes and fees. What killed UtahAccess+, or likely did since no one has voted on it, was Greg Bell saying the Hospitals, who would make hundreds of millions a year on either Healthy Utah or Utah Access+ didn't want it if there was no cap other than the 6%. They were willing to pay $25 Million total and if it was more, they weren't.

So, go back to Utah Cares, there are the votes and the funding for it. It covers those that can't make money because they need health care and more.

Re: “Chaffetz on the Rise

Why does Chaffetz get a smiley face? I can't think of anything more damaging to Utahs reputation than his success. He shows that we are proud of our lack of education funding; Evinced by his knee jerk reactions based always on faith rather than any sort of methodical analysis, research or facts. Though I didn't get to vote against him, I'm still embarrassed by him every time he's in the news.
