Death penalty naysayers

What do you do with this lovely lady?

Sounds like a psychopath.  We have max security prisons for such persons, and LWOP would be the proper sentence, as Boz said.  I admit that, if there were some extremity of viciousness that led a society to say "this person is beyond redemption and not fit to live," this woman would be a likely candidate.  One of those rare cases where my own DP objections are sorely tested.  But....have we ruled out a psychotic break and all possibility of future treatment and rehabilitation?  IOW, are we omniscient?

She plotted and enlisted her family as accomplices... they all go down. They go to jail and they stay there.

No use.  Anything I bring up through research ... not my knowledge of the subject - you will refute.

What a mealy-mouthed, lameass excuse for an excuse.

Yes, we will refute what you bring up, Kiiid.

We won't "LOL" or say "not so." We will provide evidence that it is erroneous, mistaken, wrong, slanted, or whatever it happens to be. It's not because we are contrary, but because as with Obama's birth, while we are all entitled to our own opinions, we are not entitled to our own versions of facts.

The science of climate change is solider than you or Bambi seem prepared to accept.

The immorality of the kidnapping of the children and the intentional failure to track where they were put are not things we made up and they cannot be excused by any amount of fingerpointing.

The elimination of protections of our air and water are incontestable, if one is honest.

The rise in racial incidents and the reduction of civil rights enforcements are both simple to understand and acknowledge, IFF you are willing to be honest.



If "anything I bring up" can be refuted, you might try seeking your research without a bias in your research. Then you might bring up items that we cannot refute.

Of course, there is a good chance we will agree with them.

Guck it. kid and RSW are waiting for the day they start passing out the brown shirts.


GFY

Right back at you.

Everything you profess to support in here would have made you a true believer in 1938 Germany.
You approve of ICE even as their tactics are on par with the fucking Gestapo.

Yeah, you may not be marching with a torch but your ass would be right there on sidewalk cheering..

It's not how hard you work.

It's how wealthy your familiy is.
Check out the story of Airbnb.
For starters.

Ward, people win the lottery. We know that. It's not news. But if hard work were all it took, there would be many more billionaires than there are. The evidence is in. It has been in for at least 80 years, when the first study I know of illustrated the fact that the best predictor of educational attainment was father's income. Not his or mom's education level. Not the kids' or parents' intelligence. Not where they lived or how many siblings they had. Income.

There have been changes since then, with the lower percentage of nuclear families as one of the factors. But the role of SES in educational attainment is stronger than ever, whether you like it or not.
Ok.
Don’t check out Airbnb.

It doesn't require "checking out," Ward. It's been very much in the public eye.

We Americans love our Horatio Alger stories and tell ourselves how great America is at "rags to riches," but it is just not true as a general tale.

Check out the link I provided. Anecdata is important when confronted with "nobody ever..." but that is not what I am asserting.

Very true Larry, and just the thing walrus Kiid and carpenter Red will take the greatest pains to misunderstand lest it put a damper on their appetites.

Schiff should call Obama to testify on Russian interference. It would make great television and the goon squad would have no grounds to stop it.

That would be a nice warm up for Mueller.

The Gestapo threw at least 5% of their own population into gas chambers. ICE keeps America safe by sending illegal third worlders back. Not the same!

60 year old lady leaving prison:  "I have been rehabiltated"

Onlooker:  "What did you do?"

Lady:  "I cut open a pregnant woman's belly and removed the child"

Really? 

heh

When your reading skills improve, you'll be able to decode what LWOP means.  And the importance of a court determining if she's a psychopath (very likely) or had a psychosis into which other family members were drawn (unlikely).  Killing someone with profound mental illness will not bring back the dead, in any case.

Grumpy Cat, however, died from being a sourpuss and deserved it.  We don't need cynical grifters like that.

Kentucky's move to make tatooing over scars illegal is just one more attempt to control women, no matter the bogus medical excuses they have provided for it.

The headline captures the gist.

The article explains it.

The conservatives won't read it or if they do will excuse it somehow.

That you are.  AIRBNB is not a rags to riches story, a tale of inherited wealth,  or connected in any way to winning a lottery.
It is a multi billion dollar business built by the persistence of a couple of college grads who turned turned unused spaces into
a worldwide chain of rentable rooms in 81,000+ cites.
