Jan 17 CPN commented on Washington Governor, Attorney General Propose Abolishing Death Penalty.

Yes. I have no problem with retribution.

When I first moved to Washington in 1983, the very first friend I ever had was brutally raped and murdered by a psychopath named Brian Keith Lord. He kidnapped her, then raped her repeatedly and then bashed in her skull with a claw framing hammer.

They found her body in a ditch about 300 yards from my house. She was only 16.

I sat with her family at his trial and saw firsthand what this did to them. So, yeah, I think retribution should be left to the family. I'd kill that motherfucker myself if I had the chance, then I'd have a beer and sleep like a baby.

I think it should be left to the family of the victim.

No rational person thinks capitol punishment it is a deterrent, therefore it must be retribution... and I have no problem with the family collecting their pound of flesh, should they so desire.

The problem with waiting periods is that it cuts both ways. What if you're a woman with a batshit crazy ex and want a gun to protect yourself with? A 30 day waiting period could get you killed.

At least you could still feel morally superior while you're burying her.


Then bypass the Republicans and put mental health funding on a ballot initiative. I'll vote for it. Then Democrats would actually be doing something useful to prevent gun violence instead of their typical feel-good bullshit political grandstanding.

Does anyone seriously think Ferguson's "ban" on AR-15's would have actually prevented this?

Instead of feel good bullshit, which is what my liberal brethren hold so dear when it comes to gun legislation and their gun-free utopian pipe dream, why don't liberals actually pass some actual common sense legislation that all sides can agree on?

Instead of Ferguson's political grandstanding, shouldn't somebody introduce a bill that would make the cost of a gun safe 100% tax deductible?

This is an idea that would actually save lives.
Jan 6 CPN commented on Five People Killed in Fort Lauderdale Airport Shooting.
Why does The Stranger report on an airport shooting in Florida but completely ignore the 55 people shot over Christmas weekend in South Chicago gang violence?

I'm legitimately perplexed.

You didn't address my point.

Nobody at The Stranger wrote absolutely bupkus about last weekends South Chicago gang massacre but wasted no time at all jumping on an idiotic 'gun nut.' Perhaps it's because the lefty fantasies of 'common sense' gun control measures, or any gun control measures for that matter, wouldn't do shit to deter real criminals in South Chicago.

Or perhaps The Stranger simply isn't interested in preventing violent crime. They just want to prevent guns. They clearly don't believe that a person has the right to defend themselves and their families against violent attackers with equal force.

So I'll say it again. Agenda much?

Seems like Dan and the gang have a shattering orgasm whenever they get to write a piece like this, yet we heard nothing but crickets from them after 55 people were shot in South Chicago over Christmas weekend... 90%+ as a result of gang violence.

I guess gang warfare, which is the cause of the vast majority of gun crime in this country, just isn't very important to them... because it really isn't about the crime. They just don't like guns.

If a white cop had shot a black kid, Mudede would've been on that shit like a June Bug on a jelly roll.

At least have the decency to embrace your own hypocrisy.

I do love Security Theatre.

Remember, it's better to 'feel' secure than to actually BE secure.

So... can someone please explain to me why a recount in however many states is a bad thing?

Why are recounts in as many states as necessary bad for Democracy and why is it bad for America? Please explain.

Nobody seriously believes that you give a shit about the financial cost. Oh, please...

From where I sit, it looks to me like The Stranger is so cosmically butthurt by Hillary and Goldman Sachs fucking up an election that only they and their hubris could have possibly fucked up, are now siding with the fascist-elect-in-chief purely out of their delusional spite.
