SEATTLE -- Olivia Clark lived for only one hour. Doctors didn't even expect her to survive birth. Now her family has a hard time understanding why the King County Medical Examiner has to review her death and charge $50.

This is why I hate liberals.

The hospital we went to last year where my wife miscarried is in King County. Due to the fact the baby was stillborn, we weren't subject to the tax but I guarantee you this, if we would have been, there would have been a shit storm.

As a member of the religious right, I find this outrageous. That baby didnt live for 1 hour, it lived for 9 months and 1 hour!! Taxes begin at conception!

In Michigan, the medical examiner reviews the death of any child, as does CPS (in our county, the director reviews the ME's report). I don't think the parents get charged for the ME's review, and I know they don't get charged for the CPS review.

Even if a kid dies of cancer at Children's Hospital, and he's received appropriate treatment, the case still gets reviewed.

So there should be a tax on abortions?

You are a piece of shit, you know that? :rolleyes:




The ME doesn't need to look at every death and for God's sake, a tax just for dieing? This is why Washington is going the way of California and that isn't a good thing.

I wouldn't have thought that Wilbur would scoff mockingly at the death of a child.
I'm not sure that human life has started in him at any age, a soulless hull.

Wilbur is a perfect example of how the left views a life, as a means of monetary value for the collective. I pray everyday for idiots like Wilbur....

I'm not sure what to think of this. Some (but not all) deaths do need review and examination and that's got to be paid for in some way. Rather than adding a fee (or tax) to the bill for dying, it would be more sensitive and just smarter to add this to the local taxes of the county. It's the living, after all, who care about the cause of death.

So it's a Liberal - Conservative thing is it? I bet you think the AZ sheriff was wrong in asserting that the lack of civility may have led to the shooting. Comments like yours inflames people. I think you're sick.

Actually he is no such thing. The man was voicing an opinion which is shared by many rational, mature, logical adult people. The hatred spewed by idiots like Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly, Limbaugh, and Coulter spawned the TEA Baggers and most certainly contributes to criminal activity.

Don't hijack this tread. Go post in one of the many threads about the AZ shooting or the now-known-to-be-false assertions made by the sheriff.

This thread is about Kings County and their tax issues.

Perhaps it would be wise if the Government clarified how long you have to live before paying a death tax - maybe 24 hours would be the minimum and than you are taxed.

So you think it's the place of a law enforcement official to place his own political beliefs into the conversation even before the bodies have cooled? Does the term "justice is blind" have no meaning to libs like you. And there is no liberal hate? So, I suppose a congressman saying a governor should be put against a wall and shot is done out of love? Thank you for proving my point about liberals. Oh, kindly list all of the acts of violence by Tea Partiers. I'll wait.


And Wilbur, you are a piece of rat shit if there ever was one. Way to mock the death of a baby.

guys. i think you took this wrong...although i am still relatively new here. If the left accepts it for tax purposes it would set precedence. would it not? remember. INcrementalism.

King County now requires a review of every death. The medical examiner instituted the $50 fee for cremations three years ago. This year, it included the fee for burials as well.


Obama!! how could you?!

when will these liberals stop? everyone knows the Medical Examiner is run by the Leftist Council to Smash Capitalism. Reagan is rolling in his grave. shame on the LEFT!!

What's wrong with you, Wu Wu?

This story is about a completely tone-deaf tax. Nobody is disputing that the Medical Examiner's office needs funding. It's the insensitive way the county went about collecting for it that is the issue. They could have put this funding issue in any number of other taxes and fees.

It's a stupid way to fund a program, which has literally nothing at all to do with liberals or conservatives. I'm done with it anyway.

Is it a stupid way to fund programs? Hell yes it is but where you are wrong is that it has everything to do with whether or not it is liberal or conservative. King County has been run by liberals for well over 25 years now. It is close to financial ruin. This "death tax" is just a microcosm of just how liberalism works with regards to all forms of government.
