Re: Death Penalty

You have a lot of support for this post, but in my case at-least, I went out of my way to be clear that it would not be dolled out as any type of punishment nor deterant.

Re: Death Penalty

Comparing to car deaths is spurious - if we could, we would choose for people not to die in car crashes. That we accept risk is an entirely different concept. We could choose for far less people to die in car crashes. Reduce the speed limit to 20, everywhere. Is that inconvenience worth saving the ...

Re: Death Penalty

By supporting the Death penalty we diminish ourselves as a people. Its not done for protection (the person is caught already), its done as a form of spiteful punishment to assuage anger in the populace at the crimes. When in the states you see them executing people whose mental faculties are questi...

Re: Fauci: Lockdowns are ineffective. Aus & NZ are wasting their time.

C'mon guys. I was throwing out a bit of bait and even admitted as much on post 3 or something. :lol: It was just a sensationalist headline.

Of course Fauci has been wrong about some things. That's the nature of dealing with a novel virus at the same time as constantly trying to not embarass your buffoon of a boss. The fact remains that Fauci is close the most qualified person on the planet to make comment. I have no idea what Peter Nav...
