Re: “The Ledell Lee execution thread

The problem with this country is that we insist that "killing" is somehow different than "letting die." When an insurance company, in order to increase profits, denies coverage of life-saving treatments, their actions produce the death of people, just as sure as if they had used a gun or machete. We would demand the life of a terrorist who pour poisons into a public water supply, but we willingly accommodate the corporation that, again, in order to increase profits, did their storage of poisonous chemicals on the cheap so that toxins ended up in people's drinking water, as happened in West Virginia a few years back. Governor Asa Hutchinson will demand the life of the man who kills with knife or gun but will wine and dine those who kill through spreadsheets--murder for anger is a sin in his eyes, but God and his angels shine their light upon murder for profit, as does our government. Honestly, I could well support the death penalty if it meant those CEOs also risked their own lives when they destroyed ours, but in its current incarnation, the death penalty is nothing but a war upon the poor. It is class warfare, pure and simple.

Re: “1st Amendment takes a lick in bill against 'mass picketing'

Remember this law the next time a gaggle of anti-choice protestors surround some clinic.

Re: “Trump and Russia: The plot thickens

Not only that, but the Swedish cops who were interviewed by Fox News are now speaking out and saying that their answers were taken entirely out of context, that they were, in fact, interviewed about another subject entirely: http://www.thelocal.se/20170220/swedish-fo…

Re: “Bill filed to address non-existent problem of Sharia law creeping into U.S.

Will such legislation also protect us from the implementation of foreign "Canon Law" propagated by by the monarch who rules over Vatican City? And Leviticus ain't American, either.
