The State of Georgia Murdered A Woman Today

I hope the pro lifers in Georgia are happy today after their state committed state sanctioned murder...
As far I'm concerned, the state of Georgia did not punish this woman... THEY PENALIZED HER FAMILY, who BTW had already suffered the death of their father... State condoned murder is an abomination; I don't care what your religious dogma tells you... It's sickening and it’s sad! thinkingblue

Death Penalty: Civilized Punishment or State-Sanctioned Murder?

Those who support the death penalty argue that it’s a deterrent, that it’s reasonable retribution, that certain killers deserve it, that it’s religiously mandated, that it’s the law, that it has procedural safeguards, and that it’s founded on the fair notion of “an eye for an eye.” Those who oppose it respond with the following.
If it’s based on deterrence, why is it that the South, which has the highest murder rate in the country, also has the most death penalty executions at 80 percent, while the Northeast has the lowest murder rate but only one percent of the executions? And why do nearly 90 percent of past and current presidents of the country’s leading criminal law academic societies agree that it’s not a deterrent.
If it’s reasonable retribution, why do many, if not most, of the proponents constantly scream for revenge? And, by the way, aren’t we — i.e., the civilized members of society — better than the sociopathic killers who kill to get their way? And isn’t the notion of killing killers to show that killing is wrong rather hypocritical?
If certain killers deserve it, why don’t all of those “certain” killers get it? In other words, a person could commit a single capital-type murder in one of the 34 states that has the death penalty and he or she would be executed. But another person (or that same person) could commit ten capital-type murders in one of the 16 states that does not have the death penalty and he or she could not be executed.
If it’s religiously mandated (at least by the three faiths with the most adherents), how does a proponent justify the destruction of what God, Allah, Jehovah, etc. created? In other words, since we as humans can only procreate — and not create — how can the killing of the Creator’s creation be explained, especially in light of the fact that such killing is not the result of the sort of on-the-spot deadly self-defense that is necessary in response to an imminent threat? And because the death penalty is not the result of such immediate self-defense, isn’t an execution sinful for believers and unethical or immoral for non-believers?
If it’s the law, wasn’t slavery and Jim Crow the law? And wasn’t the execution of kids the law until 2005 when the U.S. Supreme Court finally outlawed it? As a matter of fact, wasn’t the execution of 22 persons since 1976 for crimes they committed as children the law?
If there are procedural safeguards, why is it that since 1973, more than at least 130 factually innocent persons (including six in Pennsylvania) were arrested, charged, tried, found guilty, and sentenced to death with those sentences upheld many times on appeal? Why was it necessary for zealous and persistent defense attorneys — over the strenuous and repeated objections of the prosecutors — to fight tooth and nail to finally persuade some judges for reversals shortly before the scheduled executions? What if those lawyers had not been so zealous? What if they had not been so persistent?
By the way, do the proponents deny the racism and the classism of capital punishment? If so, how do they explain the fact that while African Americans constitute approximately 12-14 percent of the national population, they make up 35 percent of the death row population. Moreover, how do they explain the fact that 98 percent of the chief District Attorneys in death penalty states are white and only one percent black? And why is that while the poor constitute about 11-13 percent of the country’s population, they are about 90 percent of the death row population?
Finally, if it’s founded on the fair notion of “an eye for an eye” which means that we kill killers, then why don’t we rob robbers or kidnap kidnappers? Even better, why don’t we rape rapists? Yeah, that’s it. In the very same way that our tax dollars are used to pay a state employee to kill someone through lethal injection, why don’t we hire and pay a state employee to sexually penetrate a male or female who was convicted of rape? Savage, you say? Barbaric, you say? Uncivilized, you say? Exactly, I say — just as savage and as barbaric and as uncivilized as the death penalty.
Oh, I almost failed to mention why many opponents refer to capital punishment as “state sanctioned murder.” Well, the governor approves it, so it’s state action. And murder is defined in Pennsylvania as a premeditated (i.e., planned) and unjustified (i.e., done in the absence of an imminent threat to life or limb) killing, especially when a deadly weapon (i.e., lethal poison) is used on a vital body part (i.e., veins) of a human being.
Maybe we should take a step back and rethink the merits of executing fellow human beings? Or maybe we should just continue to mindlessly and heartlessly kill ’em all.

Fiorina's Biggest Lie

During the debate last week, the disgraced Hewlett-Packard CEO looked out at the millions of viewers and the biggest fib of the entire campaign season came rolling off of her tongue. She said,”“Anyone who has watched this videotape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says, ‘We have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.’”

Busted: Even FOX News Admits Carly Fiorina Lied About Planned Parenthood Video

This is so despicable it should be illegal! What a contemptible person Fiorina (Fuhrer) is, to take something so hideously edited and use the horrible lie to take down an organization (Planned Parenthood that helps low income women, children and men with health needs) in hope it will anger those who cannot or will not use common sense or critical thinking, to vote for her...

Lies and Deception are the enemy of the Truth. They are put forward into the minds and hearts of the people of Earth by those who rage against what is. They are spoken, propagated and acted upon by those with a vested interest in keeping the understanding of the Truth from reaching the Consciousness of each individual.
Lies and deception are insidious, for once, they have been believed and accepted by well-meaning individuals, these individuals, in their ignorance, become agents for the spread of these falsehoods. This is how lies and propaganda are spread from generation to generation. A parent is indoctrinated into the lie, and then the parent indoctrinates their children, who in turn indoctrinate their children, and so on, down through the generations.
Speaking about the most effective way to propagate the spread of lies and disinformation to as many people as possible, Adolf Hitler, the Führer of the Nazi Third Reich, stated that one should "make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it." This statement clearly shows that the real goal of those who are bent on the attainment of totalitarian power is to actually control the minds and belief systems of those upon whom they impose their rule.

Republican Murica

Don't Like Planned Parenthood, Make A Video of Lies and Distortions and Destroy It.

It appears all one has to do to in the convoluted world of Republican Murica, is create a myth about something you don’t agree with because it goes against your fantasy view of reality, get some creep to secretly film and edit, the asking of loaded questions and VOILA you now have reason to destroy the conjured evil.
If this prevails, we can no longer call this a Democratic Justice System… {{What Rights Do Citizens Have in A Democracy? - Everyone Has Basic Human Rights that the State Cannot Take away}}
More like an ISIS system to me.  {{The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has recently streamed a new set of videos that showcase the implementation of their “justice” system in the Nineveh Governorate of Iraq. The videos contain gruesome footage that is not suitable for most audiences, while also, highlighting more of the human rights violations that ISIS has committed over the last 2 and a half years.}}
Misogynists and Bigots cannot be permitted to make laws that harm society as a whole. thinkingblue

Well good for Arkansas! Since our federal wimp-resentatives were afraid to do anything, it is solid governors like Hutchinson who must clean up the mess. My only hope is that he takes the money that was previously given to PP, and reallocates it to more noble women’s clinics.

August 15, 2015 at 8:57 am
What is a more noble women’s clinic, one that limits women’s rights to what you want them to be? Abortion is legal. Donating fetal tissue is legal. Blunt discussions between medical professionals are legal. What exactly is your problem?

Medical professionals are called on to do seemingly brutal and horrific things every day, and patients would find many of their private discussions cold, cavalier and vomit-worthy. Does that make them amoral people? Does that make what they do immoral? People need to grow up. We should be THANKFUL for these medical professionals. The amoral people are those who secretly record such conversations, manipulate them, and use them to inflame and push a fringe social agenda.

The article seems to say that the recipient gets to choose, from a list of federally approved providers, where she will receive the services. Planned Parenthood is a legal provider. Isn’t this just one more case of a government restricting a woman’s

GOP Voting Again To Destroy Planned Parenthood By Defunding It, Using OUR MONEY.

Here we go again, Republicans against logic and common sense, voting today to defame (and possibly destroy) some of our rights because they don't comply with their fairytale delusions of what an old guy in the sky (who spies on their thinking and movements, every minute of every day) tells them to do, until he decrees (yup, HE is always male) “You’re Fired!”… Oops, wait a minute… that’s Donald Trump, what old guy in the sky, says is “Your Number’s Up!”… We should all refuse to live in this theocracy, the non-thinking GOP wish to impose upon us. thinkingblue
5 Most Absurd Conspiracy Theories Peddled By Anti-Choice Christians
Why is the anti-choice movement even taken seriously as a political movement by the media?
For the past few years, conservatives have been diligently trying to put a kinder, gentler face on the anti-choice movement. They try to hide that they’re a bunch of ghouls stuck in a titillation-disgust obsession with female sexuality and reproductive function. Instead, they claim to be a bunch of well-meaning church ladies just trying to help those poor young ladies realize that their true calling is motherhood.
But a few weeks ago, the mask got ripped off when a radical anti-choice group going by the name Center for Medical Progress released a bunch of misleadingly edited videos accusing Planned Parenthood of selling fetal body parts in some kind of black market profiteering scheme. The accusations got a momentary blip of incredulous media coverage before the debunking started. To summarize: the people in the videos are actually talking about donating fetal tissue to research (something even Republicans have supported in the past). The people behind the stunt are the same kind of loony right-wing nuts who love trading in bizarre conspiracy theories.
The real question here is why the anti-choice movement is taken seriously at all as a political movement by the media. The movement has a long history of pushing breathless and implausible urban legends that are more at home on some conspiracy theory website than in grown-up politics. Reproductive health care sits at an intersection of human sexuality and medicine, and anti-choicers really love wallowing in the ghastly and the sensational, even if neither has any relationship to reality.
Here are some of the more ridiculous and gross examples.
