    It would be pointless. You might as well tell someone the sky is blue or that we have moving machines called "cars." What's the point in rubbing in the obvious to a grieving woman?

    Shouldn't it cheer her up to know that everyone else is glad that he died?

    You compare a group that advocates a constitutional right to a bunch of psychopathic nut jobs and Hitler? The low that anti-2nd amendment nuts will stoop to doesn't surprise me.

    And the same back to you and yours.---I debate topics, I don't argue about them. Once I've stated my side of the debate, to the best of my ability, that's all I can do. I'm not trying to change anyone's mind. Just stating my views.

    I didn't realize daring to disagree was a capital offense these days. Only in statist left America I guess. Redress, F.Y.I. this is why you guys get blamed for this stuff.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    What about that cat Noam Chomsky (?)? What if he got sick?

    Or, better yet, that guy Hugo Chavez?

    How 'bout Fidel Castro? C'mon. You guys over in the peanut gallery were doing cartwheels when that ol' bastard took a spill off the stage and turned over the power to his brother when he got sick. I bet you guy were singin', "Whoop! 'Dere it is! Whoop! 'Dere it is." (I know I was. )

    Oh, I absolutely hate Chomsky, but if he got sick or died everything stops there.

    As long as he keeps his crazy in his borders, not my business.

    I don't wish Castro suffering or death, however I do recognize that after that legacy is gone his people have a chance at a better life. I would hope that eventually they would naturally lose power, but let's face it, that 'aint gonna happen.

    I think your right. When someone that they view as really despicable croaks or at least hospitalized they will be saying good riddance or I hope he or she croaks.
