Tony Hutton will be co-hosting this evening.
Marcia Southwick will return to the show to give a summary of the state of New Mexico, adult legislations for 2013. Marcia also publishes, Boomers Against Elder Abuse on Facebook. This group is growing each day and heading towards 35,000 members.
In response to the exposure of the corruptive practices now being exposed in probate and family courts, many interested "stakeholders"......such as Guardianship associations, the BAR association, and many in the medical complex are leaning on state legislatures to expand their death grip on the elder community, and to make legal the theft of estates, the stripping of rights and the willful ignoring of standing state statutes meant to protect the victims from the predators.
Some of these new laws seem to heading backwards, but a few are good.
Issues are things like Due process, the role of guardian ad litem, Mediation, guardian background checks, guardianship financial authority, ward's rights--etc. There are maybe 5 or so states to highlight, including New Mexico, Texas, Tennessee, Idaho, and Nevada.
In New Mexico, insanity has taken over.
