Obama to attend-speak At Tuscon Memorial Service-Your Funeral Guy

11 Jan

President Obama is attending and Speaking at a Tuscon Memorial Service for the Arizona Shooting victims. If he uses the moment to promote his political agenda, or blames his political enemies for the shooting , he is likely to face harsh criticism.

And Yet there are those on the left who will criticize him if he does not use the moment to attack those on the right.

It is my opinion is that politics should be left out of this kind of Memorial Service especially when it is a National tragedy. Expect an admonition for non violence.

President Barack Obama will travel to Tucson, Ariz., on Wednesday to attend a memorial service for the victims of last weekend’s shooting rampage.

White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said late Monday that the president would speak at the service, and that first lady Michelle Obama would accompany her husband.

The University of Arizona said the service would take place at 6 p.m. local time on the campus and would be free and open to the public.

Political Spin to Much to blog on Arizona Shooting- Funerals ahead-Your Funeral Guy

10 Jan
Map of USA with Arizona highlighted

Pundits and  Politicians on all sides are putting forth too much spin to  blog on  Arizona Congresswoman shooting . Even the other innocents  deaths have been exploited.It is my hope that their Funerals will not be politicized.

At this time it appears that the rhetoric and politicizing  of the deaths and probably the funerals is an unprecedented  tragedy beyond the sad event.

It is my hope that all will back off and respect the dead. The violence deserves condemnation. The issues are complex.

Using this tragedy for Political Purposes shows plays on the  fears and mayhem in this event.

Generally I blog about Funerals when it involves politics. The bloggers, News stations and Cable  Media are way out of control in this case.

It is my belief that the Congress, Law Enforcement and the Executive Branch are all  off the chart, if not the planet. I also refuse to comment on the Barack  “Obama moment of silence” today

I have been praying for the families of the deceased and for the Congresswoman  Gabriel Gifford’s recovery.

The shootings is are a great national tragedy. This Coverage of this  event,( including the possible elimination of free speech) is horrific. It is a glaring Example of the division, hurt, and extremism  in the United States of America.

An Original Your Funeral Guy Post.

Eventually there will be a detailed blog post on all this.

It is worth noting that crazed shooters, killing innocents and politicians since the foundation of the USA.

Death Panels issue raised by Medicare Regulation-Your Funeral Guy

26 Dec
U.S. Medicare spending per capita

At your funeral guy blogs we have briefly mentioned Death Panels at other blog sites only because it appears to have been an Exercise in Political Extremism. Now through medicare regulation it appears that death panels may come into existence. This is controversial should Medicare help you decide how you should end your life?

This is a political, personal, and theological issue and is highly charged. But it is reality and must be reported.

End of life Planning is an important part of Funeral Planning.

When a proposal to encourage end-of-life planning touched off a political storm over “death panels,” Democrats dropped it from legislation to overhaul the health care system. But the Obama administration will achieve the same goal by regulation, starting Jan. 1.

Under the new policy, outlined in a Medicare regulation, the government will pay doctors who advise patients on options for end-of-life care, which may include advance directives to forgo aggressive life-sustaining treatment.

Congressional supporters of the new policy, though pleased, have kept quiet. They fear provoking another furor like the one in 2009 when Republicans seized on the idea of end-of-life counseling to argue that the Democrats’ bill would allow the government to cut off care for the critically ill.

The senator Robert Byrd Family has objected to a Funeral Photo used in a GOP Ad for the deceased Senator Robert Byrd’s Senate seat.

One thing that Barack Obama has done in the last several years has gotten political capital for being griever in chief. Obama has spoken at many Funerals, from coal miners, to terrorist (Fort Hood)victims,to Senator Kennedy to Senator Robert Byrd.

One of Obama’s political opponents have capitalized on the President’s role of griever in chief.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The family of the late Robert C. Byrd blasted the GOP nominee for his U.S. Senate seat Sunday after he used an image from Byrd’s memorial service in a TV ad attacking the Democratic nominee.

The ad by Republican John Raese‘s campaign seeks to link President Barack Obama to Gov. Joe Manchin by displaying an image of the two Democrats at the state Capitol ceremony marking Byrd’s June 28 death.
