    Exactly, lots of people specifically commit crimes because they have a better life in prison than they would on the outside. Prison ought to be a living hell, somewhere nobody would ever want to go, certainly never more than once. I think that anyone in prison ought to spend all of their time doing one of three things: sleeping, getting an education and working hard. Free time ought to be minimal, certainly nobody ought to have more than an hour or so a day to sit around and watch TV or lift weights. You ought to go to bed exhausted every night. Prison isn't a bloody theme park, it's punishment.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I like the sour that comes off the way it is said, understand that when I say people like Donald Blom should face the DP I really mean it.

    Make sure that others understand that this is unacceptable behavior.

    If you ever want to find Jacob Wetterling you got the guy you need to talk to right here, donald blom .

    Sad part is this sick asshole burnt his victims in a huge fire pit to dispose of the bodies that sick prick and Jacob will never be found because of this! Good Job Patty_Wetterlingfor your great foundation and years of service! Jacob Wetterling Resource Center

    Re: Death Penalty

    For especially heinous crimes I support the death penalty.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Who gave us the authority to end someone's life in that deliberate of a manner? I'm not one of these guys who thinks we should reform these creeps. I think they should be locked in a cell by themselves for the rest of their life. But I also do not believe some gov't appointed official can send me to my maker. Who is he to sentence me to death?

    It's not about who *he* is, but it's about punishment that fits the crime. When you kill another, imo you forfeit your right to life.

    He is the gov't appointed judge.
    You call yourself a libertarian? HA! So, you being a libertarian, I would imagine you believe in the states right, vice the federal gov't, to introduce and pass legislation on abortion. Should we kill abortion doctors for killing babies? Just to keep you from turning this into a "when is the fetus viable" argument, lets say on partial birth abortions. Should we kill the doc?

    We the People did and til the law changes it's they way of the land. I don't see it changing anytime soon and as long as you don't do something way out weird and stupid no one will sentence you to death. Pretty simple, live by the current law that could net you such punishment and you should be in good shape!

    In other words, stay in line or the gov't will kill you. Good, got it. Are you about due to get the batteries changed on your gov't issued tracking chip that is inserted in your forehead btw?

    No, but I think your view of the very demented proven dangerous people on punishment is off target, that's all no biggie.
