My Chat with Bobby Schindler….(SUWS EXCLUSIVE)

It was just after the Roses Rally in Tallahassee when I got to talk with Bobby Schindler. He was dressed in a suit and looked incredibly handsome. His personality is refreshing. I immediately felt welcome, appreciated, and comfortable talking with him. Meeting the entire family this weekend was one of the most incredible events in my life.

This is a family that is not out for attention for themselves. They are not “media savvy,” nor do they have interest in being so. They simply are utilizing every avenue possible to stop the injustice against their beloved Terri. Bobby was eager to talk about the issues surrounding these injustices. He also expressed his appreciation and gratitude to ALL the BLOGGERS FOR TERRI! He is impressed with our knowledge of the case. (As we chatted, I rattled of page numbers of court manuscripts where pertinent information proved Michael’s inability to be a proper and deserving guardian for Terri.)

Bobby specifically noted that we need to concentrate on the fact that Terri was admitted into a Hospice. He shared that they, the family, have NO IDEA how this is being paid for or how it was allowed for her to be there. I had read reports that, contrary to Michael’s own testimony, that Bob Schindler was actually the first call Michael made when Terri first collapsed. Bobby was wonderful to verify these reports. He also verified that Michael had to be told by Mr Bob Schindler to call 911 and then MR SCHINDLER called Bobby and told him to get over there. Michael NEVER called HIM! “I remember exactly. My story hasn’t changed in 15 years.

Michael was also perplexed by the fact that Felos was Chairman of the Board for the Hospice and the role this played in getting Terri admitted into a facility without following the proper procedures.

Bobby shared what Michael said following the malpractice settlement. “Well, we didn’t get as much as we thought, so basically that kinda thwarted my whole idea of bringing her home because we didn’t get the money.”

“I don’t understand. So that means, what, we’re going to try and kill her now that we didn’t get the money that I intended to get. I only got a million”

In closing, Bobby made a plea. “Keep up the calls and the emails for these bills.” His final words: “Thanks. Thanks a lot.”


  • From your profile: "My core values are based in Christianity. I love my God, my Savior, my Children, and Israel. I am a conservative that understands that this country's forefathers created America to be The Land of Opportunity, NOT the Land of Entitlements."

    Are you kidding?! Or are you so blind that you can't see the hypocrisy in those two statements? I've got news for you, sister: Jesus was not a Republican. How completely TYPICAL of a fundamentalist "Christian" to whine about so called "entitlements" in one breath while claiming to follow Christ’s example in the next. If Jesus were alive today, you’d all dismiss Him as some communist and burn Him at the stake. What repulsive hypocrisy.

  • WOW!

    I don't ever recall claiming that Jesus would be a Republican-- but thanks for playing!

    You may need to check the definition of Conservative, and the the definition of Republican. They are two very different things. If you would bother to read a little more-- you would realize that we already covered that here at STRAIGHT UP!

    again-- thanks for playing......

    I'll let the others handle the rest of your misguided attacks.

    How's that log in your eye by the way???

  • erinberry:
    I disagree. I am not a Republican. I believe, as Christ did, in the sanctity of human life. I believe in healing, not killing.
    The only thing Jesus reportedly gave away was Wine, Fish, Bread, and His own Life. He advocated sharing what you have with those in need. He did not advocate stealing from one person to give to another. I don't know what political affiliation Jesus would choose today. But just as He was 2000 years ago, I believe He would be an advocate for the Will of God, even today.
    Oh, by the way, borrowing a donkey is okay if you need to ride into Jerusalem.

  • erinberry, I believe Jesus was neither Democrat or Republican. He did His own thing, according to the will of God and no one elses. I have never read of any entitlements that Jesus held onto, he did command His followers to feed the poor, help the sick, widowed, orphans, ect. He also said to visit the imprisoned and the less fortunate because if we did that, we were doing it for Him. There was a very rich man who asked Jesus how he can get into Heaven and Jesus told him to believe in Him. The man said he did. Jesus then told him that he should give away all of his money and work with Him. The man walked away then because he didn't want to give his money away. Pls notice that Jesus never told him he had to give his money away, He gave the man free will. We all have free will, right and wrong. It's no sin to be wealthy, but it is to hoard it and not help others with it. When you live in a communist country you are told basically where to work, how much you'll make each year, where to go for medical help, ect. Jesus does none of that, again it is free will. We can either live for Him or reject him and live for ourselves and then spend eternity in hell. Pls read the Beatitudes.
    Also, God tells us in Scripture how He made us in the Psalms and in Romans He tells us how evil homosexuality is. His ways are very clear if you read them.

  • One more little missive for erinberry.
    If you are really in touch with your Christianity, you would know that Jesus is alive today!
    That's the whole point! If he wasn't, there would be no Christianity.

  • Lately I am MUCH more satisfied with the measured, thoughtful responses of everyone here EXCEPT Sherri. Sherri, RWNJ, Levi, and the rest are making your responses look immature and foolish in tone. You may want to re-evaluate your stance when expressing alternative viewpoints.

    In any event, THANK YOU RWNJ and Levi and even sometimes jlf.

    I know what you mean about the anonymous thing. Interesting how those that want to criticize you won't even offer a nickname. At least erinberry had the guts to. He may have attacked you for somthing you never said, but at least he left a name.


    what would you have Sherri do? Get mean and angry? Delete comments she doesn't like? Or talk sweetly to someone who posts lies and attacks HER PERSONALLY! I think Sherri handles herself quite well. She challenges people to show integrity in their comments and responds as a real person, not a fake windbag.

    Her "measured" statements are on the fron page. (except when she said what we ALL feel....."MORONS VOTE." No matter which political party you affiliate yourself with, we all know morons vote)

    So, do you have anything else to offer, any thoughts, or just personal criticism?

    I think I will sign off as anonymous, just to prove a point. (wink, nod, Sherri)

  • > I know what you mean about the anonymous thing. Interesting how those that want to criticize you won't even offer a nickname.

    Someone PLEASE tell me what validation a nickname shows. The "guts" behind using a nickname? WHAT?!?!? How are you exposing yourself anymore by using a nickname? Furthermore, nicknames can be faked -- just look at the history behind the jlf nickname on this blog.

    > what would you have Sherri do? Get mean and angry?

    That's just my point! Sherri IS getting mean and angry. Compare almost ALL of her replies to detractors and even SOME of her front page stories against posts by RWNJ. HIS posts are the epitomy of patience, intelligence, measured counterbalance, and true Christian values. HER replies to detractors show nothing but a belittling attitude, little original information, and pure emotional reaction without any intellectual contributions.

    Sherri's purely emotional response is good for first roping you in, but it gets tiring quickly without sounding like rhetoric. While it first it seems silly for me to criticize Sherri on her own blog, please understand why I really come back is for posts by RWNJ, Levi, and others.

    For whatever reasons, RWNJ appears unwilling to form his own blog. But I would LOVE IT IF HE DID.

  • One more obvious point:

    Sherri, if you do not want anonymous posters, you can TURN OFF ANONYMOUS POSTING. Please let us know if you don't know how to turn it off -- it's quite easy.

    By both ENABLING ANONYMOUS POSTING and simultaneously DENOUNCING ANONYMOUS POSTING, you simply look hypocritical.

    A better suggestion would be using a better blogging service, but that's another topic altogether.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 3:38 AM  

  • I keep reading the first comment and then your response, Sherri, and I have to tell you.

    You were not even close to being mean. Someone claims you would burn your Savior at the stake, and then YOU are accused of being mean. You bad girl. tsk tsk, what a shame. When people attack you and then accuse you of saying things you did not say, you should be more "measured" and "thoughtful."

    Boy, you won't make anyone happy unless you roll over.

    This anonymous doesn't get you at all. But they don't want to. They only want to berate you. There is no validity to anything it says. The only truth I can find in its comment is that RWNJ would be GREAT at his own blog.

    I think you are wise to ignore them. I admire you for allowing anonymous comments, especailly those that disagree. This shows true conviction and faith in your own views being strong enough to withstand those that dissent in thought. It also shows your integrity to being tolerant to all voices, though you are perfectly justified in challenging those that do dissent.

    You got it right, Sherri.

  • Regarding anonymous posting, I do not believe that Sherri's attitude and policy are even remotely hypocritical. The Lord lets us sin but He simultaneously denounces it. I would rather share ideas with people I know nothing about than to not share at all. I continue to learn from the ideas of anonymous posters. To categorically prohibit them from commenting will limit the exchange of opinions. The greatest problem I have is the inability to correlate. What I mean by this: Are all the anonymous comments on this thread from the same individual? What about other threads in StraightUp? What about other blogs? It is easy enough to just sign a name (any name) at the bottom of your comment - you don't even need to register.
