Bring on the death penalty

On the matter of the death penalty, I have a modest proposal.

In Texas, and particularly Oklahoma, they have hit on the perfect answer. We must not only bring back the lions, public executions, the guillotine, hanging, the firing squad, electric chair and lethal injections. Bring back the rack! We could boil a few witches!! We must also bring back the gas chamber. Heinous solutions for heinous crimes.

Nazi Germany’s final solution sent Jews to the gas chamber, by the millions. Black folks were lynched in the South. The Irish were persecuted in this country. Christians were once killed for entertainment.

Those who refuse to remember history are doomed to repeat it. I am not worried about the death penalty. The death penalty is alive and well. We’re all born with it.

Nowadays I tend more toward Rodney King’s appeal: “Can’t we all just get along?”

    The death penalty should also be applied to any public official who violates his fiduciary duty to the people.

    John I have a 50 50 chance of agreeing with you… So are you for or against the death penalty?
