Dr. Kevorkian is going to recieve $50,000 for his speech. This is unacceptable. This bothers and distrubs many people.

If Dr. Kevorkian wants to speak, I guess the Freedom of Speech lets him do that.

But to pay him.

Forget it!

If junior feels so strongly about it, why doesn't he offer to present an opposing viewpoint? He could show how committed he is by offering to speak for free.

BobbyShortPants doesn't mind getting up there and lying his butt off about what really happened nor does he tell the "whole story" as he would have to have a Micheal's side told too.

He constantly refers to Terri's death as euthanisia and a killing when by law it was not.

His newfound "religious zest" and his morals are not everyones.

I am sure when he speaks it is to a select number of people. Most of the with the RR/RTL values. I know he spoke at a college here.

I forgot to add to my post that he thinks he has the right to speak but others who don't "share his opinion" do not.

"Some" people want to hear what the man has to say. To gain a balanced viewpoint. Yes, I know the notion of a balanced viewpoint is foreign to you James but some people just thrive on it.

LOL.

Could it be simply because there's NO financial incentive for him to do so Nic?

Like medical decisions, whether or not he gets paid is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS James.

Most dont like Bobby whoring out his sister for his own personal profit, but he does it anyway.

You dont like it? Dont go pay for it.

Hell, I'll buy a ticket to see Kevorkian, and send email's of support to him and the school just to spite you.

Funny how you have no problem with the Schindlers whoring their sister's name to make money.

You're a lying hypocrite James.

You'd win that bet, since we KNOW he does.

Pretty sad when a convicted murder is paid to speak ANYWHERE let alone at a University. Looks like the University of Florida is as liberal as liberal can get and pro-death too?

There's no such thing as "pro-death" you bitter fool.

I'd go to hear him if he comes anywhere near me. I'll bet there's a full house for his talk.

You should go and LISTEN Gnawna. You might learn something about compassion, something you're sadly lacking.

Bobby's just jealous he cant get anywhere near that much. Especially now that more and more people know he's doing nothing but whoring out his sister's name.

From Bobby Schuckster's interview:

"Schindler, who had worked tirelessly to protect his sister from a painful death by dehydration and starvation, also criticized ACCENT for claiming not to take sides and for presenting the issue for consideration.

"How can that be if they're only getting one side of the issue?” he was quoted as saying.“They're not having someone speaking on compassion, and why assisted suicide is potentially destructive.… I don't see how the students are going to choose if they're only going to hear one side of the argument."

Translation:

Bobby wants money to speak there too.

Problem is, nobody cares what he has to say anymore.

I say GOOD FOR THAT SCHOOL!
