    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

    Heard back from the National Academy yet, shit-for-brains?

    In your letter, did you remember to inform them that there used to be big bugs and big plants millions of years ago? (Shit, that knne-slapper is never going to get old!)

    According to Google: "In 2010, a death row inmate waited an average of 178 months (roughly 15 years) between sentencing and execution. Nearly a quarter of inmates on death row in the U.S. die of natural causes while awaiting execution." It seems that they have plenty of time for appeals and proving innocence. Exonerations before the sentence is carried out is not a measure of innocents executed.
    RINO is the term for a Republican who puts country above party.

    Right wing = lie, lie, and lie some more.

    The definition of "racist" as "anyone who is white" is itself racist.

    Or just having the police murder unarmed citizens in the streets.

    I'm not sure what this argument does for either side.
    They get a long prison sentence, then execution. Sounds pretty awful to me.
    Euthanasia would seem better than either incarceration or execution.
    At the very least, it should be an option.

    Pity they haven't managed to erase the stain of you, yet.

    At very least...execution, whatever one calls it, should be an option.

    But to suppose supporting LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT A CHANCE OF PAROLE...

    ...makes one more moral...

    ...or that such a punishment is somehow more humane than execution...

    ...IS AN ABSURDITY.
