Bogart had a way with words Clark Gable couldn't match.

Lemme guess, the lamestream media is behind the mis-attribution to make death happy GOPs look bad?

“There shouldn’t be anything controversial about a .45-caliber bullet. If it were up to me we would just throw them off the Sunshine Skyway bridge and be done with it,” Drake said.

Torture fantasies, gay sex, and women's uteruses dominate the thinking processes of today's GOP. In some cultures that might qualify as an unhealthy obsession, even to the point of pathological.

In this culture it just makes you a Republican.

You know, there's a lot to be said for firing squads. When the state executes somebody, they're not really being "put to sleep". Those we execute, we kill.

Kill.

It's not something to be done lightly. It's not something to be glossed over. If there's good enough reason to kill a man, it has to be good enough to do it in the plain light of day, by a means that doesn't sugar coat it.

There's also something undignified about being put down like a dog. If it comes my turn to be executed, just give me that last (and for me, first) cigarette, no blindfold thank you, and get it over with.

So I propose we at least give the condemned their choice of gurney or firing squad.

Except that with hanging, firing squads and the electric chair, more often than not, you don't die right way, so basically you're being tortured to death. That's why they were dubbed INHUMANE, because they are.

Our justice system should not be about revenge. I know there are people who can't tell the difference between revenge and justice, but torturing someone to death is revenge. Even this schmuck knows it's torture and inhumane which is why I highlighted the last paragraph.

I took a look at his website. It says he's for "family values" and school prayer... and a government that is "least intrusive". Hahahaha.

No Canadian province has the death penalty on its books and it isn't a federal punishment either. I am cool with that. Capital punishment has a lot of flaws, chief among them that mistakes cannot be repaired. Also, it's not carried out fairly.

If it ever returns to Canada I'll try to make the method of execution a pistol bullet in the back of the head, and the job of executioner will be filled by a draft. Any one old enough to vote could get a letter in the mail that states, "On this date you will be at this jail where you will execute this person." Refusing will carry a prison term.

You wouldn't believe how many capital punishment supporters start sputtering when they fear they might have to do their own killing.

Luckily, it won't ever come to that here in Canada.
