Another Cancer Hoaxer
Dallas, Texas is home to the latest case of Munchausen Syndrome
. Hope Ybarra managed to raise $100,000 by convincing an entire community
that she was dying of cancer. She even fooled her family. Apparently the ruse went on for years. To their credit, once her family found out she wasn't really sick they put an end to the entire thing and are offering to return everyone's money. [Yahoo! Video

Wouldn't it be the funniest thing if she did, and no-one believed her, and she suffered a long, painful, disfiguring illness, capped by a wasting amd miserable death? 😊
About the only perquisite I have in my sociobiological state is being excused from the onerous parts of human existence, like having to be sympathetic for some WOETO* like this woman who faked a disease that I have personal knowledge of, and gained the sympathy of people who in all likelihood would with equal eagerness oppose on 'moral' grounds any and all research into an effective cure.
More to the point, I would willingly feed this dog-fellator into a woodchipper feet first a centimetre per minute, and laugh during the entire process. YMMV.

Would you really? Are you sure?
Pretty convinced, Rich. Unlike humans, I do not believe in rewarding people who tell falsehoods for profit and punishing peopel who are honest no matter who discretely that punishment is delivered.
That is why I have no trouble with the fact taht 'Liar' and 'lawyer' are homonyms either - IME, they tend to mean the same as well. 😊
1. She never solicited funds on her own behalf. While she never turned away help financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually, or otherwise-she never directly solicited any of the contributions made to her. Generally, offers of assistance where made by persons who were touched by her amazing story, which was not real, and chose to help her in many ways beyond belief or conception.
2. She has been involved in fundraising efforts throughout most of her lifetime. She has worked with Catholic Charities, Cancer organizations, Childhood Illness organizations, Deaf organizations, etc. and has done much in the way of fundraising and donating to these causes.
DF- I do hope that you have been able to benefit from some of the funds raised for research and assistance for victims of cancer and that you have been blessed by the good she has done during her lifetime.
While it is inconcievable to me that someone would claim to have any disease they do not have, most especially cancer, or that they would claim to be dying when they are not-I do recognize that no one of us is ALL good nor are we ALL bad. In trying to understand how someone could possibly do this, the only thing I can come up with is that I will never understand a person who is acting irrationally as I am trying to understand their thoughts and actions through my rational mind.
This certainly does not forgive, accept, or excuse what has occured in this case. What this has caused me to wonder though is if you are a rational thinker yourself. To pass judgement when you do not know all of the facts, to slander someone you do not know and to resort to name-calling surely doesn't appear very rational to me!
As for benifitting from anything this comtemptible lump of misused protein has done, it would be highly unlikely - I have yet to develop cancer, and if I did, my country has banned many of the treatments other countries have developed, particularaly the US, because of 'rational' reasons that have stemmed from the caring and forward thinking mindset of people such as yourself. After all, I'm sure you would agree that the ideas of alternative medicine and 'natural therapies', not using animal models for medical testing and such that were promoted by Adolf Hitler were part of the 'good in ALL of us', or some Left Coast inanity that cloaks moral cowardice as 'rational' and positive action.
And without knowing me, you call me irrational and subtly suggest I should be 'dealt with' - Rather seems to be a case of hypocrisy there after you accuse me of them same thing. But I'm sure that you can find a lawyer to justify any such behaviour.
In any case, One Who Knows, know this - That despite your demand that ALL people agree with you, there are those rational who will draw their own conclusions and disagree with you in the name of freedom. And you will be forced one day to admit you are wrong.
There is a very strong likelihood that Mrs. Ybarra has been poisoning her child. If she has Munchausen...she probably has Munchausen by Proxy.
Her child is sick. But, does she have what her mother says she has? Or, has she been poisoned.
For the sake of the daughter...the authorities need to check this out thoroughly...
