State of Texas locks up elderly couple.. a MUST see.

An elderly Richardson couple is having some major problems with the State of Texas. The elderly husband (a former Fox 4 employee) slipped and broke his hip. Soon he and his wife (she has some memory issues) found themselves committed to a nursing home, their finances under state control, their savings being burned through by the nursing home..

So they do what any sane person would do.. Call Becky Oliver. The links below have video of the story..


Keep in mind, this isn't Obamacare, this is the STATE OF TEXAS. Just one more reason the government shouldn't be trusted.

Wow. Who can I call or write about this? This is absolute bullshit.

You just can't do this to people. Maybe they are old, maybe they can't take care of themselves, but it is their choice to deteriorate in their home, lose their health and lose their mind, and the state has NO responsibility to help them.

They need to just leave them alone.

the state of texas is a bunch of crooks. its obvious that they took advantage of these folks and its sad. they will suck those 2 old folks dry of everything they have and then fuck them up with meds until they are gone and they have everything they own. those responsible for that should be locked up and held accountable. everybody you know will magically appear with a psychological disorder before its all over. why? because its a money maker.

There was a state senator mentioned on the second article. I would contact her if you are one of her constituents. However, Fox 4 does appear to have gotten her attention and she seemed genuinely pissed off.

A perfect example of what is to come if we allow Obamacare to take over. I'm sure that this is minor compared to what Obama has in mind.

Lord,
Grant me the serenity to accept the fact that I can't pass them all,
The courage to pass most ...
And the wisdom to hide the bodies of those who refuse to get the hell out of my way!!

not suprised at all

You could have posted that the state was using electric Anal probes on people to save money and have actual video and I would not be anymore suprised.


Nothing now days is out of the realm.

Start watching Glenn Beck people.

We are losing rights day by day, I think there were close to 250 NEW laws that went into effect sept 1st 2009 in Texas.

Just look at what was done to the Indians.

Vote Kinky for Gov

He has plans to do away with toll roads and many other things.

Why...

are we not rioting in th damned streets?


These clowns can just sweep in, say you're incompetent, and just lock you away while they take everything that you have ever been, everything you are, and everything you will ever be for themselves? Those priceless 50 year old pictures and 100 year old heirlooms GONE! You lose EVERYTHING while being confined to an 16X18 room with a 24" non HD tube tv with twin beds and three meals served on a tray a day? Bet you money that skinny bastard at the end of the third video has a good chunk of their money in his bank account...


Our fore-fathers are without a doubt rolling in their graves right about now...

I want to know who or what was behind the legislation that allowed this to happen.

I agree with fox466 everyone should be in the streets while we still are allowed too. We were given something great by our fore-fathers, only to watch it slowly disappear before our eyes.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

Watching that pisses me off to no end. "The STATE" needs to have it's collective ass terminated for pulling that shit. Anybody and everybody responsible for doing that to them and who knows how many other people like them should be terminated.

I am still pissed off about this, the worst part is I can't do anything about it except write a letter. This should be on prime time news and asses should roll over this.

All I can think about is if someone tried to pull that crap on my grandparents, who are in the same situation (except they have family around who won't let shit like this happen).

Does the Texas legislature have constituents in a particular area like federal, or should I just hound that lady in the video to get shit handled?
