Does Death Penalty Save Lives? A New Debate - Who Cares?

Does Death Penalty Save Lives? A New Debate

Why not go back to the original reason? Punishment. If one tears the fabric of society, culture and civility so that it endangers others, society has no further cause or reason to put up with you or support and care for you.

Saving lives through example is an added bonus.

Rope, bullet or needle?

Reporters Don't Always Lie, But They Do Pass On Their Editor's Lies

This is a great story and I would like to thank Webutante for passing this on to us. It reminds us that Iraqis and Afghans are not objects to be pitied and then cast aside for a victim de jour as most liberals do, but they are now our allies in the fight not only against terrorism, but all those that say there are those that cannot cultivate freedom for themselves.

Today, Muslims mostly filled the front pews of St John’s. Muslims who
want their Christian friends and neighbors to come home. The Christians who
might see these photos likely will recognize their friends here. The Muslims in
this neighborhood worry that other people will take the homes of their Christian
neighbors, and that the Christians will never come back. And so they came to St
John’s today in force, and they showed their faces, and they said, “Come back to
Iraq. Come home.” They wanted the cameras to catch it. They wanted to spread the word: Come home. Muslims keep telling me to get it on the news. “Tell the
Christians to come home to their country Iraq.”

A Catholic Bishop came to St John’s Church in Baghdad November 15,
where a crowd of locals welcomed him home. They were joined at the service by
soldiers from the 2-12 infantry battalion, many of whom had fought hard to
secure these neighborhood streets. Members of the hard-fighting Iraqi Army 3rd
Division were also here for this special day.

Read the rest and follow the links. The MSM's editors are genetically incapable of passing on a story that is supportive of our hopes for a free and peaceful world.

So read it on the web and its myriad of tubes.

Brent Musburger, NASCAR, OSU And God's Tempting Of Me To Shoot My TV

It was, as usual, horrible and irritating to have Brent Musburger announce the OSU vs Michigan football game yesterday. Of course most ABC Sports coverage is mainly about ABC, upcoming ABC shows and advertising with a little sports sprinkled in between. Musburger and "friends" then go on to discuss cute sidebars and have absolutely worthless tech gadgets block most of what sports they do show. Now, add Musburger's obvious bias for Michigan, his constant negative comments about anything OSU and you have a situation where heat rash is more enjoyable.

Today is the last NASCAR race of the season. The DuPont Dweeb, Lil'Jeffy Gorden, has a chance (very little) to win the championship. His team mate Jimmy Johnson is the likely winner. It could be a great race. For the championship finale ABC could have brought their "A" game, but no, they have decided not to. They brought Brent Musburger.

Why is Brent Musburger on my TV again? He knows less (and could care less) about NASCAR than I know about brain surgery. What have I done to deserve this?

Sound off.
