"God Damn America as long as she tries to act like she is God and she is supreme"

I don't see why anyone on the right would have a problem with this sermon considering Wright is calling out the failures of government..

I happen to like the rep system, and eventually I plan to add a "best of" based on rep.

You died when you refused to stand up for right
You died when you refused to stand up for truth
You died when you refused to stand up for justice

Actually, you don't understand. That's one of your biggest problems.
I have no problem with executing criminals for heinous crimes. But the state has no right to cause undue suffering in the name of vengeance. Now, you might think that's quite OK. But then again, no one will ever accuse you of being christian.


I concur. No matter how monstrous the crime, the person is still human. What makes us different from the monster is that we recognize that fact, and seek justice, not revenge.

I don't think birthers understand the ramifications of Obama not being a natural born citizen. The only thing we would get is a 20 year logjam in the courts.

After in depth market analysis, I have determined that Charleston, WV is the ideal city for a MCHM storage facility.

All of their assets and contracts should go to the highest bidder and the money used for the cleanup and punitive damages for residents..

We'll have to wait and see if there's an honest judge in WV

And if not for regulations, what do the courts have as a basis for justice?


Compensatory damages to the state and citizens, and punitive damages if the court finds they would be worthwhile.

Hydromorphone is a powerfull opiate drug that produces extreme euphoria and blissful apathy. Hydromorphone is the 3rd strongest opiate pharmacutically produced. It is very affective Intra-veineous but produces little effect orally or insufflated (snorted). Becouse of this it is rarley abused unlike other opiates. Many users who have experienced this drug coin it there own peronal "slice of heaven" becouse of its extreme euphoriaic bliss enducing effects.

Midazolam may cause serious or life-threatening breathing problems such as shallow, slowed, or temporarily stopped breathing.

Well i'm certainly not an expert on the subject, but his family members were not guilty of any crime, and what that scene did to them is unconscionable. While the death penalty may be warranted in some cases, i'm also of the opinion that two wrongs don't make a right.

EDIT:

When do we as a supposedly civilized society in the 21st century, stop the archaic practices of the 1st century. Also if people who claim to be pro life feel they have the right to not have the Constitutional right of an abortion funded with their tax money. Why doesn't someone who is anti death penalty afforded the same right to not have their tax money be used for the state to kill someone in their name. Double standard much?


What crimes do aborted babies commit?

How do you give a murder victim justice if not by taking the offenders life? Is that not fair?

I don't know why anyone in their right mind would choose to watch a family member die by execution. If the guy was getting the chair or hanged, do you think they still would have wanted ringside tickets?

Guy didn't feel anything.. He was doped up on Hydromorphone and most likely unconscious when his body was reacting to the Midazolam. Addicts keel over all the time shooting up with their friends and everyone thinks they're passed out..

Could America's Wealth Gap Lead To A Revolt?

All the talk about income and wealth inequality over the last couple of years begs the question: Could the wealth gap lead to a revolt?

Regardless of your personal views on the minimum wage, the protesters may have a point. The disparity between the nation’s top earners and the bottom 80 percent has grown exponentially over the past three decades, and it’s been exacerbated by the Great Recession.

For all the employment growth and claims by many that our economy is in recovery, most of those new jobs – six out of ten according to the Labor Department – are on the low end of the pay scale, which is already much lower than other first world countries. Meanwhile, the top executives of the fast food companies at the center of this storm are among the highest paid in the nation.

However, what is striking is the vast disparity between what the average American believes the wealth gap to be, and what it actually is. The reality in graphic form shows that the bottom 40% barely register, and the top 1 percent already own more of the wealth than most Americans think the top 20% should own in a fair society.

That leaves the bottom 80 percent with a meager 7 percent of the wealth, or, to look at it another way, the wealthiest 400 Americans have the same combined wealth of the nation’s poorest – more than 150 million people, which is almost half the population. So, no matter how you slice it, when it comes to income and wealth in America, the rich get most of the pie and the rest get the crumbs.

As more Americans are confronted with evidence of this stark reality, the chances of social unrest increase. In my last blog I analyzed the protests in Brazil through the lens of human behavior, and an offshoot of equity theory I call “perceived fairness”. In essence, people are willing to make financial decisions that are not in their own best interest in order to correct an unfair situation with another person. But that is in a one on one situation. Throw in the psychology of mob mentalityand it gets much worse.

So what does this say about the current economic reality of our own American pie? And how much more inequity do we need to see before the nation’s poorest, which is the vast majority, really revolt?

Aristotle was the first to state that inequality triggers a revolution and that was certainly the case during the French Revolution, when onerous taxes on the lower and middle classes enhanced the lives of the wealthiest aristocrats. The American Revolution was also about unfairness. Remember the rallying cry: “no taxation without representation”? That was in response to Americans being taxed for the gain of British.

The key to this not happening here and now has always been our belief in upward mobility. As long as average Americans feel they can better their lives and rise up the social and economic ladder, they will work within the system. But, more and more, we are seeing this possibility fading in America.

Fortunately, we are an aspirational society, and even the poorest among us continue to dream of climbing to the next rung. As long as the power of hope remains that anyone can better their life and grab the American dream, the status quo will be intact. But, how much longer is there going to be enough of the pie for a growing segment of the middle to lower classes of the American population to split?

In Part II, I’ll discuss the burgeoning group of people in this country who have little hope outside of a life that’s on state welfare, and the danger this poses to society. I’ll also discuss the Samaritan’s dilemma which dictates that, when given a hand out, there are two types of people: those who will use the helping hand to better their lot, and those who come to rely on that charity as a way of life.

Read ‘The Wealth Revolt, Part II: Food Stamp Nation’.

enabling the manipulation of the appearance of the value of wealth will not change the value of real wealth.


When the dollar is manipulated to the point that food and other necessities are inflated without an increase in the value of labor, the people lose. Were we to stop QE and let the market adjust, the value of labor would catch up.
