2. They'd throw the ashes in dumpsters

They don't give a flying fuck about humanity

12. Exactly. None of them care, down to the lowest-rung staffer.

NONE.

3. Because I have experience

in dealing with a destitute person who died recently....
Do you know how much it costs to be cremated? In OK as of March 1 it was 1029.69 No frills, no container, just a bag of ashes returned to you. I have to wonder how many people or their family could afford this? Only by the grace of the crematorium, did they hold the body an extra week so his friends could raise the money.
If we had not raised the money, he would have been buried in an unmarked grave by the county. It used to be only those with no one to claim the body were buried there but now, as we were told by the crematorium, the county has had to recently expand the land used for disposal because of the increase in people who can not even afford basic services.
Not only will Nocare kill millions, mass graves may be the standard in the future.
This is NOT the America my ancestors and current family have fought and died for.

4. I'm sure they are talking about sending only a part of the ashes. I guess for

people who want to be cremated in the first place. Maybe not

7. Yes I understand

they were more than likely suggesting a small portion of the ashes. My point was many people who will die from this will be too poor to afford to even be cremated in the first place. Their bodies will be "disposed of" by the county.

8. If I die please let my body sit in a barn somewhere for about a

week then drop me off in front of Ryan's front door of his home. Oh, make sure you can chain me to his porch so they have to work at it to get me off. My last stand.

11. Transporting a week old dead body is a lot to ask of family and friends

But I get your point!

14. Please let this catch on. We need a pile of ashes and body parts at Ryans house or office now

to get across what's going to happen.

15. It'd be cool to mail him ziplock baggies of (nonhuman) ashes. (but don't)

But seriously, don't, because that would totally trigger the government into "anthrax" mode.

Perhaps sending him decorative funeral urns once a week to fill his office with would be more appropriate.

16. Or we could save our relations the trouble and go to D.C. and light ourselves on

 

fire right in front of his offices.
