    Actually its more like "if you commit 1st degree murder you, will be executed". Because if you kill a burglar, kill someone while defending your life or some one else you will not be punished. If you kill someone while in a fight or while drunk driving you will be punished but you will not be executed.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Thank you for that recorded massage.

    I abhor Lima beans, and feel they should be similarly banned.

    Please note that my call for a prohibition would be far less damaging than thine.

    Yeah, think about those 6,000 prison breaks a year.

    A murderer serving life, who had already excaped three times, escaped from a Federal prison three miles from my parents's house.

    So, yeah, the death penalty is in the interest of public safety.

    Glad he's gone! But i think they should add child molesters, and rapist, to the list also.

    But then I also think we should add corrupt politicians to the list because they are traitors.

    Okay, then lets do it California San Quentin Style....


    "If you kill, you will be rewarded with air conditioned accommodations, a college style campus, and you even have a chance to be a part of a real sports team."
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    This is why the prison system in this country is ****ed. It is the equivalent of grounding a child to his room when he has a tv,computer,internet, phone and other luxuries.
