    If he said 'death penalty' that's a different thing.

    If he said 'death penalty' and you made it 'assassination' then you are putting spin on it.

    Careful with words. Words have a lot of power. Remember: The pen is mightier than the sword.

    Or, to bring that into current context, the keyboard is mightier than the assault rifle.
    His word was, "assassination." EDIT to add: I note that you mentioned assassination being illegal, but said nothing about being immoral.

    I don't support that.

    Should go without saying. Of course I agree it is immoral.
    Personal Ignore Policy PIP: Very simple. I am into civil discourse. I will give you all the respect in the world if you respect me. Flame on me, mouth off to me, or express overt racism, you go on my Ignore List. Zero tolerance. PERMANENT. Forever. No exceptions ever. And you will be banned from any Thread I create. ... Ignore the shallow. Cherish the thoughtful. Long Live Civil Discourse, Mutual Respect, and Good Debate!

    That’s why you don’t buy them on Amazon, you ask your Canadian family to bring them back. It’s a rare treat!
