Posted in: Death penalty can express society's outrage – but biases often taint verdict See in context

Mitigating circumstances are no more than a clever tactic lawyers use to enrich themselves.

The only thing that matters is whether a defendant did or did not do the crime that they are accused.

Swift application of the death penalty for all felons, including white collar felons, can and will eliminate recidivism and make our society a safer and equitable place.

This is nothing new. NFL players were getting ballet training as long ago as the 1960's.

How about requiring governments to report on how much useless feel good legislation adds to the problem by creating a phony sense of accomplishment?

At least he allowed the cat to swim and wasn't forcing the cat to sink.

So one story says that restrictions will be eased, yet another story says some places will require proof of vaccination.

Requiring proof is a restriction. Can't have it both ways.

Posted in: The first battle in the culture wars: The quality of diversity See in context

Blatant condescending racism is the hallmark of neo-liberalism, expounding the stereotypical view of the helpless minority unable to fend for themselves without the aid of handouts and quotas.

The focus on diversity for the sake of diversity is shear lunacy; we should instead be recognizing what we all have in common and work from there.

This is just an insignificant drop in the bucket.

Japan should be letting 88,000 refugees in instead of a mere 88. Even that would be fewer than 2000 per prefecture, and with a declining population , and a generation of spoiled children coming of age, Japan is in dire need of people willing to do the jobs that young Japanese won't do.

Androgynous characters intended to groom a generation of young males to be willing subjects of pedophilia.

Posted in: Growing American football on Japanese turf See in context

Attendance at college and professional football games is back to normal, stadiums are packed to capacity, few wear masks and the USA averages over 100,000 new cases of Covid each day.

As for the sport, it grows more tiresome every year. Endless new rules attempt to force players to conform to draconian rules of behavior and the constant calling of penalties and play reviews make the game drag on for hours, allowing sponsors more time to sell televised ads while those in attendance fidget in their seats wondering what goes on.

Rugby is much more exciting.

It is true that there is no danger of contracting a STD from a toilet seat, however there is a lot of other types of diseases and other bugs lurking on public toilets.

I always use at least 3 of the paper seat covers before using a public toilet.

Posted in: U.S. sets new lower salt target for food industry See in context

The FDA is little more than the enforcement arm of the industries it "regulates."

This move is no more than a PR stunt to create the appearance of an agency concerned about public health.

It is most likely a face saving move in response to an industry move to cut costs by reducing salt used in production.

Posted in: FDA panel endorses lower-dose Moderna COVID shot for booster See in context

It is a panel of OUTSIDE advisors urging the FDA to recommend the Moderna booster, after the FDA themselves had already determined a Moderna booster was not necessary.

Who exactly are these "outside advisors" who have more expertise and influence to overrule the FDA?

Most likely a panel from those who stand to earn billions from boosting vaccine levels in the already vaccinated.

60% of men say they sit? As a man, I suspect that a majority of that 60% are simply lying, telling the pollster a tale to appear more hygienic than they really are.

It would be preferable if someone designed a combination toilet-urinal that would contain any splashing and allow men to stand as nature intended rather than be subjected to further emasculating social engineering by the anti gender police.

So what if he is a "youth. " 19 is old enough to know right from wrong.

He should head for the gallows immediately after a fair trial.

If innocent unborn babies can be aborted as a choice, there is no moral or logical reason why murderous predators cannot be systematically executed as well.

If he wanted to keep the rest of the band together, why didn't he then?

Not sure what kind of business arrangement they had, but they could have offered John a percentage if they wanted to keep the Beatles name, and gone on as a trio or hired someone to take his place. In 70s London, there was a lot of talented rockers changing bands, they could have replaced Lennon in a heartbeat!

The free people of the world need to unite and send belligerent war mongering China a message by boycotting all Chinese goods NOW.

Relying on political leaders is useless, money talks, and if, only if, and when the freedom loving people of this planet stop spending their money on Chinese goods will these power crazed despots get a clue.

Posted in: 52-year-old woman arrested over mother’s murder See in context

As to the crime reported, mental health problems should not be considered as a defense of a crime of this nature. The perpetrator was under treatment, and apparently those who cared for her did not consider her a danger, if they had then she would have been institutionalized. This kind of crime calls for nothing less than the death penalty.
