  1. says

    Dick cheney is too old for a heart transplant

    If they actually do it (due to power and wealth) then he better keep his mouth shut. Add old white wealthy males getting organ transplants over younger healthier people + more tax breaks for the rich and the peasants might revolt by shinning up the guillotines

  2. Paul R says

    Cheney is 68. The general cutoff age for a heart transplant is 70 (which I suspect is why he’s trying to decide ASAP). And even then, according to several sources, “While patients over age 70 are generally less likely to receive a transplant, that is not an absolute standard. Age is one of many factors considered.”

    Not to mention that there are many GOP doctors who would consider it a privilege to keep this man alive as long as possible.

    He probably had a mini heart attack last week fueled by rage and frustration over bin Laden being killed under Obama’s watch instead of his, despite all of Cheney’s efforts to curtail civil liberties and US decency and dignity in our foreign relations.

  3. Bob R says

    I cannot think of a bigger waste of a donated human organ than Dick Cheney. I hope it never happens. I’m in my early 60’s and have a failing heart due to CAD and CHF. I may someday be a candidate for a transplant, but wouldn’t have one because I would rather have a viable organ used for a much younger patient that has many more years ahead of them.

    You all assume Cheney will be getting his heart in America. My guess is that he’ll be getting some “donor” organ in Dubai or some other despotic playground for the rich where nobody asks question and everything has a price.

  5. RedCedar says

    “Dick Cheney still thinking about the possibility of a heart transplant.”

    Um, shouldn’t that be “heart implant” (to replace the lump of coal presently there)?

    I think that Mother’s Day, both before and after it was co-opted by commercial interests, was useful to the American Eugenics Movement. By honoring white, Protestant, North European women, it encouraged them to have more children to combat the perceived destructive procreational upsurge among other ethic and racial groups. That effrot failed and now all women are incorporated into the annual feeding frenzy. Too many people who pay little attention to their mothers the rest of the year are stampeded into paying out huge amounts of money because they’ve been convinced that’s what they’re SUPPOSED to do.
