    KiwK Dying with Dignity

    in Entertainment

    Today's show is a tough one, as I have a very special guest on the show to discuss her feelings about the controversial Death with Dignity program offered by Oregon as an option to terminal patients with 6months to live or less. It is a lethal dose of barbituates self administered by the patient who is looking die when THEY say, around the people THEY choose and without the pain they most certainly would face, otherwise. My guest, a close personal friend, is the widow of a man who had the same disease Brittany Maynard had, only unlike Brittany Maynard, her husband did not have that option. We will take a very emotional and painful look at the weeks leading up to and the day of her husband's death.


     


    I will take calls, even if you oppose Death with Dignity. HOWEVER, you better be respectful or your off air, no warning given.


     


    Thank you for listening.

    Death with Dignity Movement – A Catholic response

    in Christianity

    True death with dignity is trusting in our Lord God that He is seeing to the perfect timing of our personal death. We find dignity in God’s will. Nowhere else!


    I’m afraid the so-called “death with dignity” movement has the potential to become a rapidly growing problem. We Christians and all those who wish to follow the truth of Jesus and His Church or even just the truth of natural law have a duty to do all we can to bring the light of truth to the culture on this vital life issue.


     Jesus literally put the death we fear so much to death so we can be happy with Him forever. Nothing good comes from trying to take shortcuts form the cross. 


    Our heavenly Father is bringing a great good out of our pain and suffering when we unite it to Jesus on the cross.


    As very horrible as it was I thank God for my cancer. It was a gift like no other gift that had the efficacy of bringing me closer to God than I ever would have any other way. It also brought my family closer to God. And there is no price too high to grow in union with God. I can frankly say that I would not trade my cancer journey for anything.

    Project PHD

    in Jobs

    Jobs – Helping men and women of all ages to Achieve Their Full Potential
    We here at Project PHD believe that advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems (as we know them) to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a person has the dignity of receiving a paycheck. When a person has his/her dignity (a job) research shows that the children of parents earning a paycheck succeeds far better in school than those with parents who do not receive a paycheck from working. When families are financially stable; our churches, communities, states and country as a whole is a lot healthier and more secure.
     
    The Mission of Project PHD is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of the unemployment and underemployed problems. We will build the strongest representation for employment this country has ever seen allowing us a bargaining seat at the Federal, State, and local levels with the kind of leverage that makes an impact. By you working with us with one voice means you are actively being a part of this much needed change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. “Join Us To Speak With One Voice!”
    Take A Stand: Change an unemployed or under-employed person’s life. Restore their human dignity with a job by becoming a PHD partner.

    THE REAL DELIA (Smith) - Brittany Maynard/Death With Dignity

    in Radio

    On November 1, 2014 29 y.o. brain cancer patient, Brittany Maynard, ended her life. She took advantage of the Death With Dignity Law in Oregon to end her life on her terms. Her action was reported in media including People.com and on NPR. There is lots of controversy ever since Dr. Jack Kevorkian assisted terminally ill patients many years ago. Today we will be discussing Ms. Maynard's case specifically and Oregon's law as well as the reaction to her death. 


     


    Part two of the show we will be doing the first in our new 3 part segment: Getting To Know You. . . .Today, the newest member of The Real Delia Show, Lady Tee, will join me in interviewing co-host extraordinaire Mr. DLW . . . . AKA Darkwing. . . . AKA Darryl L Williams. 


    Lady Cab Driver takes the turns and spills on the conversation road, to take lights of green and yellow on the TALK BOULEVARD, yet there is no caution here.  All systems go - and with her co-host, they are ready to explore the open roads of speaking candidly about everything.  347-205-9366, the number to reach out and share the traveling, for there is no telling where your destination will end up.  Are you ready for some game debates and more - right here on the JKN with the REAL DELIA SMITH.  Enough said!

  • Human Rights Demand for Justice

    in Politics Progressive

    JUSTICE is the constant and perpetual disposition to render every man his due. It is the proper administration of the law; the fair and equitable treatment of all individuals under the law. Justice is also a title given to certain judges, such as federal and state supreme court judges. Justice is 1) fairness, 2) moral rightness, 3) a scheme or system of law in which every person receives his/her/its due from the system, including all rights, both natural and legal. One problem is that attorneys, judges, and legislatures often get caught up more in procedure than in achieving justice for all. 
    (Read more at http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/justice ).


    At "Human Rights Demand," we believe that justice is unlikely to happen where lawmakers and justice officials have a conflict of interest. Demand the resignations of lawmakers, judges, public defenders, prosecutors, Justice Department personnel and everyone else on the public's payroll if they are also PRISON INVESTORS. That is the only way to decriminalize mental illness, eliminate mass incarceration, and restore justice to our courtrooms. Tell public employees to DIVEST OR RESIGN. We must rid our government of everyone whose stock portfolios perform best with mass incarceration, wars, and when environmental concerns are ignored. Ask your congressional representative to introduce a bill that prohibits all lawmakers and other public officials and their spouses from earning prison profits. Pass such a bill, and we will see positive Change in the justice system. Only when prison investors can no longer write laws, represent and prosecute defendants, or preside over criminal cases will any semblance of justice arrive in U.S. courts.


    "No man can serve two masters [his constituents and his stock portfolio]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other" - Matt. 6:24.
