  1. The SCOTUS will rule today on the matter of using lethal injection to carry out a capital murder execution.

    I predict that the SCOTUS will halt the use of the three-injection lethal injection because the first injection doesn’t necessarily take away the physical pain of the death finally caused by the last two injections

    All this effort to carry out “humane executions” has caused nothing but more trouble, i.e., legal challenges..

  2. Kid says:

    AOW, I see states are voting to reinstate the electric chair in the drugs aren’t available, and now if their use is disallowed. Works for me.

    Conservatism is in real trouble, throttled not by enemies, but by inept practitioners.

    YEP what SF said . I was thinking about all these agendas being thrown at us and how many people are willing to just roll over. The majority of Americans have no idea what any of this really means to them, nor do they care to find out. The entire attitude of Americans of just rolling over has been making me sick and frustrated.
    Let’s see they want to be able to move more low income housing into rich neighborhoods? Why not try to fix up the current neighborhoods that have been decimated instead of decimating others.
    Now all they need is to slap a big old climate tax on us all and they will be done,and so will we.

    not sure if that is exactly what SF meant ,but it got me to thinking.

  6. Mustang says:
    Silverfiddle’s comment is accurate, and yet I believe that we must also acknowledge that it has been the design of our political masters to overwhelm our citizenry. I equate this to information overload where, because of incredibly high volumes of information, the average citizen is simply unable process it, or deal with it. What does this overburdened person do? He or she refocuses on computer games or social media. This is not coincidental, in my opinion. The beltway scum are manipulating America … it is what they have always done, of course, but now it appears as if they are no longer trying to hide it. It’s fundamental change, man …
  7. Flooding the zone.

  8. AOW, If they want to have a “humane execution, why not simply put them under like they do when going in for surgery, then administer the lethal injection. Too logical?
    Lisa, Americans rolling over is exactly what the Germans did in the 1930’s and we all know what happened as a result. You’d think we would learn from our mistakes, but no, we don’t. We proved that again in 2012 when we re-elected the arse!

    Lisa… “Let’s see they want to be able to move more low income housing into rich neighborhoods? Why not try to fix up the current neighborhoods that have been decimated instead of decimating others.” This is the next big thing Obama supposedly wants to ‘work on’ (i.e. ruin)…I’m hoping they move homeless people into mansions next to Diana Ross and Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, etc etc.
    This is THE WORST idea ever. They finally had to stop busing after they ruined a generation of kids …what a ‘fabulous’ idea! “Let’s show the poor kids how they live in the rich areas….let’s have them on buses at 6am so they can take the hour’s ride in horrid traffic into that nice area, then expose them to the kids pulling into the school pkg lot in their BMWs, then send ’em home” Meanwhile, the black and white kids don’t blend, one group eats over there, the other, over in that corner….. now we’re going to do this to adults? Or babies in adult bodies?

    AOW…how hard can it be to eliminate the PAIN caused by injections? Give them sleeping pills first. What is SO HARD? What is WRONG with us? OH, I know,,…some liberal doctor says some of those who are being killed might have an allergy to Ambien!? I swear, we’re SO NUTS now I wouldn’t doubt that.

    Kid…works for me, too. Man, THAT can’t feel too good, however!!! ZAP!

    SF: I’m trying to stay strong in my fight against Leftwingers….ya, the GOP STINKS and we have to deal with them, sadly. I’m so afraid more Conservatives won’t vote again … I’m convinced voting machines will vote for HIllary, but we need to do what we can, don’t we…to make sure she’s NOT IN.

    Mustang; we are certainly being manipulated.. Americans are SOUND ASLEEP….SOUND ASLEEP.

  10. geeez2014 says:

    Mal….just saw your comment…….yes, if they can put us out in SURGERY enough not to feel CUTTING somewhere, I’m pretty sure a drug exists that can get them ‘through the pain of execution’.
    But, I guess that’s too easy. Some lawyer will screw that up

  11. Kid says:

    Mal, A couple years ago I watched a documentary of Germany in the 1930’s specifically the part detailing the propaganda. How they demonized Jews, lying about them, and Hungary and/or Poland saying they were giving nearby Germans a lot of grief and attacking them etc. Quite a bit more, but what is happening here with the media is Exactly like 1930’s Germany. Absolute parallel.

  12. geeez2014 says:

    SF: YOu might want to get Ted Cruz’s book; he is in agreement with you BIG TIME

  13. geeez2014 says:

    Katie Couric is so upset about Cruz’s take on Climate Change..”What about THE POPE?” she asks..as if the POPE is the penultimate goldstandard of science!
    I swear!
    The interview above isn’t short, but it is INTERESTING and I URGE you to watch it…I’m still listening….very, VERY good.
    Don’t tell anybody I said this but she is such a bitch 🙂

  14. geeez2014 says:

    I WISH someone had the guts to ask Couric “have you EVER EVER asked that tough or revealing a question of any leftwinger and will you ever stop showing your biases?” Fat chance
    But Cruz was tough…I have to admit…excellent.

  15. Kid says:

    Cruz gave excellent answers to questions that are not particularly answerable definitively. Libs like to think in very simple terms of yes, no, and these issues that were brought up do not fit that mold, especially the climate scam. I wish he’d ahve mentioned that “97% of climate scientists that agree man made climate change is among the 100% who are being paid out of a 1.4 billion $ pool of money and that there are 31,000+ actual scientists who say no and have signed a petition to this effect.

    I like how he definitively says ISIS needs to be destroyed, the methods primarily decided by the military command, and that the ROE for any Americans on the ground if an when absolutely need to change.
    Overall, he shows he can handle the media and forces them to ask questions in a reasonable/respectful way. (Except for going on about the Pope and climate change, surely couric knows the Pope isn’t a scientist but just another person who bought into the scam) Anyway, None of this stick a mic in someones face and ask them about rape or abortion or gays and they just start spouting off. He doesn’t let them score any points so easily. These jerk-offs are really going to have to be on their game to trip him up. I saw him answer something to an msnbc guy about gay marriage and he just swatted him away like a bug. That’s what you do – you don’t give them the time of day.

    He calmly explains how these are not black and white issues, they have a lot of sides.
    I liked the immigration answer.

  16. Kid says:

    I also like how he fit into the conversation that the top 1% rich have never been more rich since 1928 and that the little guy – single mother, black dudes, middle class are getting reamed under obama. That obama promised a 2500 cost reduction in HC INS costs and people have had a 3000 increase instead. Then he says the ones who did get 2500 reduction should vote dem and he’ll take the rest and it would be the first time someone gets 100% of the vote.

    He did a great job and these are the libtards cream of the crop of questions to trip the right up with.

  17. geeez2014 says:

    Kid, I liked it, too.
    And ya…imagine Couris using the POPE as ‘the last word’ on climate change….she almost made me laugh.
    Imagine her asking ANY leftwing candidate questions like THIS? Oh, she was so not happy with him and tried so hard to turn it around to his ignoring questions when he was NOT. As he said “You just don’t like my answer”
    And ya…”We don’t want to CONTAIN ISIS, we want to get RID OF IT”…good answer!

  18. geeez2014 says:

    Kid…ya, I forgot that part. She had ZILCH to say on that, !! oops! I can imagine her mind swirling “Wait, a REPUBLICAN is sticking up for the little guy…in an interview with ME? And it’s legit? NEXT QUESTION….!!” 🙂

  19. Mustang says:

    My suspicion is that Katie is AADHD because she seems unable to focus on any complex responses. This could go a long way in validating that leftist talking points represents as much as the progressive mind can handle in any 24-hour period. I think Mr. Cruz did well. How far Couric has fallen to end up at Yahoo.

  20. geeez2014 says:

    Mustang, I thought that, too. Yahoo…WOWEE….she has fallen but gets paid very big bucks, so what’s she care about integrity, I guess?
    And yes, I’m not sure she couldn’t focus but she sure didn’t want to; anything that didn’t echo her own opinions looked almost confusing to her. It literally throws them when really bright folks don’t go along with their leftwing world.

  21. Kid says:

    I absolutely don’t believe lefties understand these types of issues so as to understand reasonable answers given.
    But she clearly wanted to get Cruz to say something negative about the Pope, that he would put boots on the ground, that climate change is BS (Which he did btw, she couldn’t figure that out I guess. “scientific method”? ruh roh?) All the questions were aimed at getting 5 second sound bites that yahoo could blast 24/7.

  22. Kid says:

    She should have asked if Europe was a country or a continent, then Cruz could have said Neither!

  23. FB says:

    What’s bugging me these days? Idiots blowing up firecrackers every night in the SF valley. It’s been horrible. Cops don’t do squat.

  24. geeez2014 says:

    FB…is that right? WOW! HOpefully, after the 4th, they’ll die down?
    The poor dogs in your neighborhoods!

  25. cube says:

    I’m getting to that point myself. Even a political wonk like myself can get to the point where there is too much bad news.

  26. Glad to see that my prediction was wrong. 🙂

  27. cube says:

    Z: This is off topic, but my husband cooked a batch of stuffed grape leaves and stuffed koosa earlier this week. I posted some pictures. I cooked the last batch, but it sure is nice to have someone to spell me once in while.

  28. Mustang.Koji says:

    I’m with you, geeez. Too many disheartening topics are being blown out of proportion on our media outlets. I despise them…especially when they blatantly support the leftists.
