Living Will…

I, _________________________ (fill in the blank), being of sound mind
and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means.

Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of peckerwood ethically challenged politicians who couldn’t pass ninth-grade biology

if their lives depended on it.  If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to sit up and ask for a Sangria, Mojito, Amadori Sour, it

should be presumed that I won’t ever get better.  When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my spouse, children and attending physicians

to pull the plug,  reel in the tubes and call it a day.

Under no circumstances shall the hypocritical members of the Legislature
(State or Federal) enact a special law to keep me on life-support

machinery.  It is my wish that these boneheads mind their own damn business, and pay attention instead to the health, education and future of the millions of

Americans who aren’t in a permanent coma.

Under no circumstances shall any politicians butt into this case.  I don’t care how many fundamentalist votes they’re trying to scrounge for their run

for the presidency, it is my wish that they play politics with someone else’s life and leave me alone to die in peace. I couldn’t care less if a hundred religious

zealots send e-mails to legislators in which they pretend to care about me. I don’t know these people, and I certainly haven’t authorized them to preach and

crusade on my behalf.  They should mind their own business, too. If any of my family goes against my wishes and turns my case into a

political cause, I hereby promise to come back from the grave and make his or her existence a living hell.
