AFP - Belgium is considering a significant change to its decade-old euthanasia law that would allow minors and Alzheimer's sufferers to seek permission to die.

The proposed changes to the law were submitted to parliament Tuesday by the Socialist party and are likely to be approved by other parties, although no date has yet been put forward for a parliamentary debate.

"The idea is to update the law to take better account of dramatic situations and extremely harrowing cases we must find a response to," party leader Thierry Giet said.

The draft legislation calls for "the law to be extended to minors if they are capable of discernment or affected by an incurable illness or suffering that we cannot alleviate."

Belgium was the second country in the world after the Netherlands to legalise euthanasia in 2002 but it applies only to people over the age of 18.

Socialist Senator Philippe Mahoux, who helped draft the proposed changes, said there had been cases of adolescents who "had the capacity to decide" their future.

He said parliamentarians would also consider extended mercy-killing to people suffering from Alzheiner's-type illnesses.

No one has answered this question yet but maybe you can.
Who stops the criminals and gang members from getting their hands on guns even if they are banned?
It seems like an important question.
Recreational drugs and their use are illegal in America.

How successful has our government been so far in enforcing drug importation laws to stop the flow?

The importation of many specific weapons is also illegal in America.

How successful has our government been so far in enforcing weapons importation laws to stop the flow?

Hell, we've got a government that has been selling illegal weapons itself.

Illegal entry into this country is also unenforceable by this government. In fact, it promotes it for political gain.

Many folks can drive into urban areas tonight and come home with weapons and drugs in under an hour. The Boy Messiah can play Hollywood until the collective sheep and cows of America come home but it will change nothing. He is a tear-wiping liar playing to the cameras.

Does anyone really believe that Obozo will "crack down" on the importation of illegal weapons flowing to urban thugs?

Not on your life. The Boy Messiah was born of Hollywood and cheap media. Gun Control is a Wolf in Sheep's Clothing.

But this country is heavily populated with Sheep waiting for the Messiah to save them.

String Theory Features
String theory is a work in progress, so trying to pin down exactly what the science is, or what its fundamental elements are, can be kind of tricky. The key string theory features include:
All objects in our universe are composed of vibrating filaments (strings) and membranes (branes) of energy.
String theory attempts to reconcile general relativity (gravity) with quantum physics.
A new connection (called supersymmetry) exists between two fundamentally different types of particles, bosons and fermions.
Several extra (usually unobservable) dimensions to the universe must exist.
There are also other possible string theory features, depending on what theories prove to have merit in the future. Possibilities include:
A landscape of string theory solutions, allowing for possible parallel universes.
The holographic principle, which states how information in a space can relate to information on the surface of that space.
The anthropic principle, which states that scientists can use the fact that humanity exists as an explanation for certain physical properties of our universe.
Our universe could be “stuck” on a brane, allowing for new interpretations of string theory.
Other principles or features, waiting to be discovered
This sounds much like a design with intelligence behind it. You know, with physics and properties and principles being so logical and all.

Don't you think it odd, in light of all this intelligence with a logical design, that Intelligent Design is censored as free thought in the scientific world nowadays?

WASHINGTON (AP)-- An independent panel charged with investigating the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans has concluded that systematic management and leadership failures at the State Department led to "grossly" inadequate security at the mission in Benghazi.
"Systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place," the panel said.
And the independent panel totally exonerated President Obama of any wrongdoing whatsoever. Now let's put this unfortunate incident behind us and get back to the business of getting all these deadly guns off the streets.

<quoted text> Explanation, STRAIGHTE BULLSHIT!!! Your logic to the republican schlacking is chris christie sabotaged the election by representing & looking out for the best of his constituents, & also recognizing & applauding the presidents swift &
efficient handling of a country in a crisis. What since does that make. Conn, Ny, Nj, 3 states that was never was going to vote for romney in the 1st place, but somehow that shifted the way folks not affected by the hurricane was going to. 5 point swing. Thats right wing bullshit! You can come up with a better one then that. I've heard all kinds of excuses from your side except the right one. Romney never stood a chance!!!
It is historic fact. Romney wins until the 5-point shift which occurred Chris Christi publicly chastizes Romney and in the next motion is prancing around with Obama,who doesn't do a goddam thing, as usual. After the 5-point swing, Obama barely gets 50 percent of the vote.
You are entitled to your own opinion, whatever opinion is given to you in your indoctrination sessions. You are not entitled to your own facts, though.
The uncontestble fact is, Obama gets at best 47 percent of the vote before Christi caused the 5-point swing, instead of the barely 50 percent Obama got after that swing. Look at history. That 47 percent equates to loosing big.
Now, to back up your bullshit, please cite something Obama did. I can't think of anything Obama did. I heard him talk a lot, though.
Here's something new to you:
Talking is not the same as doing.
I know it's really difficult for a Democrat to understand that.
Tell us what Obama did. I'd like to hear about it. So far, I am not aware of anything Obama did... to tell the truth, his entire life.

We are sure you'll be as shocked as I was to not hear anything about this in the mainstream media.
Immediately after the tragedy in Connecticutt, another mass muder was going to happen.... until an armed American saved an uncountable number of lives in a crowded mall.
Didn't anyone wonder why a guy, armed to the teeth, in a crowded mall at Christmas, during the height of Christmas shopping season, only managed to kill two people before turning the gun on himself?
This man, Nick Meli, is why, and hes a true Hero as far as we are concerned. He is a CCW holder in Oregon and he confronted a psychotic murderer at the Clackamas Town Center mall last week, thus saving an unknown number of innocent lives.
Nick saw what was happening, took cover and then drew down on the suspect. Nick held his fire though, because the background wasn't clear and he feared he might hit an innocent person. But he was willing and that made a profound difference.
Nick's actions made the killer retreat into a stairwell and kill himself, like the coward that he was.

How many lives could have been saved in Connecticutt if someone, anyone in the school had been armed?

The last thing "nobama 2012" wants is the old lady or anyone else to be armed. It would make his job much harder and more dangerous. As one who vandalizes he knows the value of an unarmed citizenary.
Peace
The police are there to protect the unarmed citizenry. With today's technology, police can be at a crime scene within seconds at just the touch of a button on a cellphone. Rather than a deadly "shootout at the OK corral", police can subdue a perpetrator without using deadly force in many cases. There's no reason that any young person should die for spray painting graffiti on a person's mailbox.

If you mean facing the music of having failed our next generation, count me among them.

Glorifying and sensualizing mindless killing in movies and video games, teaching children there are no consequences to bad behavior and right and wrong is just situational, having access to every kind of website without any oversight or supervision, and worrying more about walking on political correct eggshells than our future has a price.

The problem is the culture. The one your and my generation created without any forethought and with much complacency.

For Obama to do something wrong, he actually has to do something. Obama has done nothing but ride in the gold seat on the government gravy train his entire life. The facts of his life are less than mediocre. The status the Communist Party USA, via Frank Marshal Davis, gave Obama is his only legacy. Imagine that. The sum total worth of Obama's life is an unearned status.
Poor student at Occidental. His performance at Occidental had to have been overlooked when he was permitted to enroll at Columbia, where he never even met anyone in his class (which means he never even attended any classes). Somehow, without ever attending classes at Columbia, he (supposedly) gets a degree and is admitted to Harvard.
Now, here's the real indicator of how much of a nothing Obama has been his entire life:
Obama was put on the faculty of the University of Chicago Law School when he had in his resume only two stints as a summer intern and some work on something called "Project Vote". That's it. Obama had never even seen the inside of a courtroom as a lawyer, and someone arranges for him to be on the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School.
So, please tell us about something Obama did. I hear him talk a lot... well, read from a teleprompter. But, I just am not aware of anything Obama has ever done in his life but ride a gravy train.
