    The bolded sentence makes no sense. Nonetheless, this seems like an appropriate time to point out the fact that yoru hands should be registered as deadly weapons.

    I beat him unconsious.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Most likely not. But give it a shot.

    Do I really need to spell it out? Let's just say your sympathies lie in a different place than mine do.

    Is punishment and it's varying degrees not a deterent?

    If not, then why have punishments?

    And for the record, most death penalty proponents (and none in this thread) don't believe the death penalty has a crime prevention (deterrent) effect. When a guy is looking to stab his wife to death because she pissed him off, the death penalty/prison sentence is the last thing he's thinking about. Prison, in general, does not serve as a deterrent to crime, other than for those who are incarcerated. Keeping the right people incarcerated can DEFINITELY have a quelling effect on overall crime.

    That won't keep death penalty opponents from beating this dead horse repeatedly, though.
    Despite your irresistible sex bomb status, your cogent argument is somewhat spoiled by one of your very own colleagues right here, Mr Badmutha, who argues that very point. Post 137:
    Deterrents are only as effective as the punishment is harsh........

    .....the penalty of death for taking innocent life is both appropriate and necessary.
    So, it's not the antis who are flogging this particular dead horse. You'll notice that none of us here have raised it, merely responded when a pro-DP poster used it.

    Well, that's a ridiculously stupid argument. FWIW, Mr. Badmutha is no friend of mine.
