I’ve been thinking about Washington and Colorado lately and how they are not getting their money’s worth. The people there pay federal income tax and yet the feds won’t enforce the federal marijuana laws (but they do in the other 48 states). Should they get a refund?
And Washington State soon may need federal help of another kind. Their asset forfeture programs have yielded very little since the cops aren’t baby sitting as much of the population. My dad sent Hans a clipping from the Wall Street Journal Of an article about Wynton Marsalis’ trumpet. On the back was a list of loot the feds stole from criminals. Hmm. I wonder who the real criminals were? They don’t publish that anymore. I wrote and asked why. No reply.
Fatal injections are not working in Oklahoma. So they had to postpone the next execution. Can this really be happening? There is no other way to kill these guys? If the blood-thirsty self righteous punks that have it in for these criminals can’t wait for a background check, can’t they find somebody else who can legally shoot a gun. Get er done you murderers. Don’t sanitize it. Be the real you. It is like the rules of war. Bullets are OK but gas is not? If the situation is serious enough to snuff out humans why quibble on the details.
My guess is your heart’s not in it. My guess is you are a coward and it’s OK if someone else does the deed, but not if it’s you. I think all this killing isn’t worth it. It doesn’t produce the intended results.
