"Jahi McMath spends much of her time like any other teenage girl: she sits cross-legged in bed, listens to Rihanna and Beyonce on her iPod, and gets a manicure and pedicure every Friday.
This according to mom Nailah Winkfield, who yesterday gave her first interviews since Jahi was moved out of Children's Hospital Oakland."
She's just like any other teenage girl, except for one thing, of course: She's dead.
The people who encourage this sort of thing for their own political and religious reasons, and prevent her family from moving on with their lives, are among the most malicious human beings on this earth. And the last major outbreak of this sort of thing, the Terry Schiavo disgrace, enlisted people ready to capitalize on her family's tragedy, who reached all the way up to the Republican President at the time, and many Republican members of Congress.
Never a word of apology from a single one of them when Terry Schiavo finally died, after being exploited for years, and an autopsy revealed, just as her doctors had predicted all along, that her brain had liquefied. And there will be no word of apology when Jahi McMath is finally left to rest in peace, after an expense of millions of dollars to maintain an appearance of life.
It is really hard to imagine how there could be lower specimens of human beings, and yet the lunatic American populace continues to vote them into office. We're cooked if we don't find a way to damage this sort of person very badly.
