    Folks have recently brought me to task because the information I've gotten from listening to the NBC News with Brian Williams is not accurate, therefore, perhaps this will turn out to be another example of the Einstein's that litter this site providing us with the truth. Mea Culpa, in advance.

    Seems Dick Cheney is clinically dead and he is being kept alive by an internal pump that has to be connected to batteries or a typical electrical outlet.

    Let's bet WE taxpayers are paying for a generator or some other contraption or to be sure there are no black-outs or brown-outs at his place!

    I wonder if Cheney would support regulations that required these expensive procedures to be used on every American who needs them? Or, perhaps he would give them some of his ill-gotten multi-millions instead.

    Actually he is very much alive on the "Latest" artificial heart. He needs a "heart transplant". They said earlier on NBC that the artificial heart he is on can give him 4-6 years while awaiting a new heart. The hews story sounded like an SNL Skit. "Dick Cheney's heart is no longer beating..."

    If ex VP Cheney does get a heart transplant, I wonder who the person will be on the nation-wide "official" donor waiting list that gets bumped so Darth Vader can live?

    My thoughts exactly.
    I thought the "policy" was only to give transplants to much younger folks who were more likely to live for many more years if they received it.
    And, we taxpayers had better hope that whatever is done to him is cheap. We are going to continue to pay for keeping alive yet one more leech who is of absolutely no benefit to us now or in the future.
    Maybe we can convince Obama to sign some emergency moratorium in this situation.
    It would be much better for us than Obama's hair-brained moratorium in drilling off the coast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Since Cheney got rich on backdoor oil deals maybe he can do one final deed that actually benefits us by convincing Obama to stop the drilling moratorium in exchange for not letting Cheney have any more taxpayer funded medical care. And, not to accept any heart transplants, unless it is given to him by a "foreigner" and the procedure occurs in a "foreign" country.

    As throughout all of history, evil men die rich, powerful and in comfort.

    And all it took was 60 million poor people dying.

    BTW, most of the Nazi financiers and war industry titans died, old, comfortable, and richer than they were before the war.

    Surely we all rely on electricity and batteries to stay alive. Just a little less intimately.
