Re: Crime and punishment

Will the media and the mob influence sentencing?

lol Do you remember that dude who took out a full page ad in the paper calling for those black kids to be put to death? And then they turned out to be innocent. He was a kind of one-man-mob wasn't he?

Re: the land of the free

... the socialist nonsense propagated by the Institute for Policy Studies ? You do realise that that isn't a refutation of anything? It's just an expression of your right-wing prejudice.

Re: The Biden Binder

Henry, I had you down as smart but this makes you look like one of the short-bus-folk that bent lawyer was talking about . Naturally poll figures for the Liar-in-Chief will differ from state to state and from city to city. But Walker's claim, "Trump is now the overwhelming populist choice for the ne...

Re: The Biden Binder

It's impossible to know anything for certain, but only one of these two claims; Trump is now the overwhelming populist choice for the next election Trump is not the overwhelming populist choice for the next election is extravagant.
