On the Friday before Labor Day, 2013, the Norths had just finished their toast when a nurse, who visited five times a week to help Rennie bathe and dress, came to their house, in Sun City Aliante, an â€śactive adultâ€ť community in Las Vegas. They had moved there in 2005, when Rudy, a retired consultant for broadcasters, was sixty-eight and Rennie was sixty-six. They took pride in their view of the golf course, though neither of them played golf.
Rudy chatted with the nurse in the kitchen for twenty minutes, joking about marriage and laundry, until there was a knock at the door. A stocky woman with shiny black hair introduced herself as April Parks, the owner of the company A Private Professional Guardian. She was accompanied by three colleagues, who didnâ€™t give their names. Parks told the Norths that she had an order from the Clark County Family Court to â€śremoveâ€ť them from their home. She would be...
Guardianship derives from the stateâ€™s parens patriae power, its duty to act as a parent for those considered too vulnerable to care for themselves. â€śThe King shall have the custody of the lands of natural fools, taking the profits of them without waste or destruction, and shall find them their necessaries,â€ť reads the English statute De Prerogative Regis, from 1324. The law was imported to the coloniesâ€”guardianship is still controlled by state, not federal, lawâ€”and has remained largely intact for the past eight hundred years. It establishes a relationship between ward and guardian that is rooted in trust. In the United States, a million and a half adults are under the care of guardians, either family members or professionals, who control some two hundred and seventy-three billion dollars in assets, according to an auditor for the guardianship fraud program in Palm Beach County. Little is known about the outcome of these arrangements, because states do not keep complete figures on guardianship casesâ€”statutes vary widelyâ€”and, in most jurisdictions, the court records are sealed. A Government Accountability report from 2010 said, â€śWe could not locate a single Web site, federal agency, state or local entity, or any other organization that compiles comprehensive information..."
baby boomer generation would by scripture look to generation x (x as in bullseye, as in aborted generation) to care take of them in their elder years.
some prominent pastors skipping this generation to lift up cultural marxists.
they have not stood by the persecuted in younger generations. they make their millions and tell their congregations its no big deal to make a wedding cake for sodomites. they tell generation x to go to wars based on their eschatology, never looking back when Christians are eradicated.
they do not know that ISIS was western backed or that the media unrest towards the president in africa and other places is due to him changing objectives from proISIS to ending it .... Las Vegas?
these particular men are becoming stumbling blocks for the next generations..
...the Lord says we reap what we sow.
as a nation, something to humble us.
the aborted generation, the working class generation that lost their jobs to NAFTA and to illegals, now on their backs pay the taxes for the dependent masses.
it is with this tax burden that our large elderly population retires and expecting a high stock market output.
How should head pastors treat elderly men? What is an elder? How should children treat adults? The purpose of this sermon is to restore respect for the elderly, while maintaining an effective, pastoral ministry.
Minimum respect avoid murder - Hospice euthanasia warning by Pastor Faust
a radio interview with Pastor Joey Faust on Dr. Stanley Monteith's radio program. The subject matter is how many Hospice's are running a stealth euthanasia program.
Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.
Sermon Audio has a good article about what happens to some people who are forcibly put under guardianship who don't need any. The following is a short article from Nebraska about the financial abuse of a court appointed Guardian for people who probably needed a Guardian-- an honest one that is.
Disability Rights Nebraska wrote: Judith Widener has become the face of guardianship abuse in Nebraska. Her illegal actions were revealed by State Auditor Mike Foley. She has entered a plea agreement with the Nebraska Department of Justice. Widener's plea of "no contest" basically means she neither agrees nor disagrees with the charges and case against her. In her case she agrees to a Class III Felony and to pay restitution of $25,857 for the money she criminally charged to have stolen from her wards.
