    I rather like that.

    I like the next sentence aswell.
    "Offcourse I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice."

    <<AND>>

    Death penalty opponents like the ignorant radio slut I was listening to this morning who trot out the old "worse to spend every day in jail thinking about it". She was asked about the issue below and essentially refused to comment - the woman's ignorance on most issues is practically part of the show, yet she gets angry when people mock her for it.

    Is it even worse? I think I'd rather exist than not. It's not like we're torturing them. They're watching TV and working out. If it was me, I'd rather exist than not.

    And that kid is obviously not fit for ever going back into society again. that's what the death penalty is for.

    Yup, pretty much. Fear of death & dying is one of the basic Freudian motivators, and the disingenuous claims about it being 'worse than death' smack of some serious horse-crap.

    Unfortunately there's a slew of the above-mentioned horse-crap trotted out whenever this is recognized. Not the least of those doing so purport to be Christian, yet fundamentally misunderstand "Thou shalt not murder" as somehow being above the law.

    What? Pointless and stupid? Try this on for size!

    "We did not cancel honors recognition as erroneously reported on FOX News in Boston. We changed our Honors Night from an exclusive ceremony at night to an all inclusive ceremony during the day with the entire school present. During this ceremony we will honor those who have excelled academically, athletically, in the Arts and in the Related Arts.

    Any reports to the contrary are incorrect."


    Not only blithering Socialist "everyone wins a prize" idiocy, but a complete lack of character in the bargain! SoB went on-camera to defend his position, and now is an utter crapweasel saying that it's a misunderstanding.

    We wonder <WHY> we seem to have a surplus of murderous, sociopathic narcissists?

    How come they don't lose him in the system instead of this guy?

    New Mexico Man pulled over for alleged DUI. Never given trial. Instead, placed in solitary confinement for 22 months. He was neglected so long that his toenails grew so long that they curled around his foot.



    $15.5 million settlement paid by not the guards or the prison system but the taxpayer.

    Athletes and students who do well I understand giving them an award. But including everyone else so they can have an inspirational speaker? Do that another day! It's like when it's some kid's birthday and the parents buy not only the birthday kid a present, but all the siblings (if any) because they "don't want them to feel left out." HOLD UP! It's the kid's birthday! that is THEIR day. Let them be in the limelight for that day, sibs can cheer from the side.

    not pointless or stupid, but irritating. Was watching trashy tv the other day and this person was like, "Yeah, I like all kinds of music. Usher, Timbaland, Jay-Z. I'm all over the place." NO. NO, YOU ARE NOT! All over the place is bouncing from one genre to a completely different one!!! Not going from artist to artist in the same damn genre!! ><

    While I think we're getting to the same place here, again we're getting there for completely different reasons. I don't think the death penalty works as a deterrent for the people that would get it. I'd remove those who have something wrong with them such that they can never be allowed back into society. Once we've determined that, death penalty or life senetence is all the same. Seems to me death penalty is cheaper (or should be).

    I do understand that granting the state the ability to kill means we need to be very careful about how we implement that choice, but it's silly to say there's NO ONE for which that's the best option.

    That's not to say jail isn't a deterrent. i think for most people, it is a deterrent. i just don't think that works on psychopaths and such.

    Unfortunately there's a slew of the above-mentioned horse-crap trotted out whenever this is recognized. Not the least of those doing so purport to be Christian, yet fundamentally misunderstand "Thou shalt not murder" as somehow being above the law.
    So selective which which bible verses they like and which they don't. It's irritating, isn't it?

    I don't see anywhere in there it saying everyone gets a prize. Only the ones that excelled in some field. The theater awards are probably BS, but academics and athletics are easily quantifiable. I support awarding excellence. I would think you would too.

    Sounds more like FOX jumped the gun.

    Conversations on Politics because most topics along this line are just flinging crap at the other party and rarely end in an adult discussion.
