Strong article, Annie...it's going to leave mark.
Hillary is right, according to her statement lodged in the headline: No license necessary to carry, and no registration mandated by government. It is a right, Grandma, not a privilege.
I like the rope better. No brass to police up.
Retribution is sufficient rationale for the death penalty. This case in Oklahoma brings up the issue of execution methodology more than it does the question of whether we should execute or not execute condemned men and women. I am not a fan of convict euthanasia because it involves a process too easy to screw-up. Hanging is better, cleaner, cost effective and does not exceed the "cruel and unusual" punishment criteria. Finally...executing the condemned, as per the wishes of a citizen jury after due process and fair adjudication is accomplished, is not a barbaric act, but the mark of a civilized society.

Ms Reisenwitz...there is a Colorado press report about a husband that ate too much marijuana and ending up killing his wife. Could you comment? If it was true, yes, the premise may yet still hold: no one has ever OD'd on Mary Jane and killed themselves...but what of others? I would hope the story was a hoax.
Right now, a lot of prayer is in order. While we know that Mr. Gowdy will lead the investigation, with distinction I would add, the road ahead remains uncertain. We are truly in perilous times and much will hinge on this investigation and outcome.
All this story tells me is that the gallows remain the most effective and efficient manner by which the death penalty should be administered. WE should not be wasting time with doctors and drugs...get to the rope whereby the errors of human engagement are minimized and there is no suffering of the condemned. There is no justice for the murdered if the penalty is abolished, and deterrence is not a factor for its continuation...retribution remains the most salient argument.
Were the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution not so radical in their central theme: self governance emanating from the people which possess unalienable rights and a government with limited enumerated powers, there would not be any problems here. These documents define the concept of the "citizen" and differentiate between that and a "subject". It is an impediment to outright servitude and tyranny, hence it must be kept away from the young students at college.

Love it...more civil disobedience. Wish it were the same for the ACA, but some folks had to sign up when they lost their insurance due to the new law, otherwise they could no longer take care of their family. WE need more acts of this sort, and more direct support as was exhibited by those folks that went to Nevada to help the Bundy family.
Cheney...still living in their heads rent free.
Wait until they start measuring STD rates.
