Sounds like an appropriate capital case.

I don't remember any death penalty case discussed on this forum where you wouldn't think it was appropriate.

This case is hardly "appropriate", given that the actual killer didn't receive the death penalty. Disproportion in sentencing was a ground for a number of commutations since 1976.

The mastermind, if you will, is always the highest target for District Attorneys.......

That doesn't make it less arbitrary and disproportionate.

British Prime Minister (1905-1908)

The last British PM to win a majority. The first First Lord of the Treasury to be officially called "Prime Minister". The only PM to serve as the Father of the House simultaniously and, due to his impressive record on reforms, called ""Britain's first, and only, radical Prime Minister"".

Sadly, he seems largely forgotten today.

You should probably note he is the last Liberal to receive a majority, unless you are ignoring Bonar Law, Baldwin, Attlee, Churchill etc.

And yes, a great man.

That's what I meant but didn't type the key word. Silly me.

OT: It's amusing that in all his three runs (1945, 1950 and 1951) Churchill never actually won a popular vote.

It's all so arbitrary isn't it? Who gets the death penalty and who doesn't is such a slapdash process that it is pretty much impossible for it to function as a deterrent.

In 1972 existing death penalty laws were struck down as arbitrary and new ones, upheld in 1976, were supposed to be free of arbitrariness. Didn't work, unsurprisingly.

The group of survivors is wandering amilessly. They are tired and starts to lose control.

Free Bird: Please explain to my friend TNVolunteer why New Hampshire is not solid blue.
Dallasfan: As evident in both 2010 and 2014... wait a second, I see what you did here.
Cathcon: That asshole is trying to broke us apart.
Antonio: Haven't you announced you'll stop talking until Christmas?
Free Bird: I'm reducing my speaking.
Cathcon: Dude, you've been speaking more yesterday than ever before.
Free Bird: Lol.

Exhausted from escaping their oppressors, Antonio finally snapped.

Antonio: I WILL KILL THAT MOTHERF**KER!

He grabs Free Bird and breaks him in two.

Cathcon: Dawg!
Antonio: (breathing heavily) YOU... SAID... YOU... WILL... SHUT... UP... UNTIL... CHRISTMAS!
Dallasfan: Easy dude, the troll is gone.
bgwah: This is why people are stopping liking you. You insult everybody, send treathening PMs and kill trolls. You're just an asshole.
Cathcon: I know it's out of the blue, but why isn't CrabCake getting lines here?
Narrator: CrabCake is too unique to parody. I'm just too scared to try.
bgwah: See, Antonio, you're not that special Roll Eyes

RIP bgwah

General: Mr. President, maybe we ought to resolve the whole mess by taking out Tender Branson.
Bush: Taking out how?
General: A precise, surgical drone strike.
Bush: Out of the question!
General: Sir? Shocked
Bush: I am a compassionate conservative. Droning is liberal and weak policy. We will sent a squadrow of B-52 bombers and bomb the living hell from the Atlas Forum.
General: But, sir, Tender is not there.
Bush: I don't care about chasing him in Bavaria. Sending SEALs is too liberal. Tomorrow, we will bomb the living s**t of them.
General: Sir, that's a bit drastic.
Bush: LIBERATING OPRESSED PEOPLE IS NOT AN EASY BUSINESS!

Jamespol's a martyr to the fascist moderation that's taken over AAD.


Yet they haven't banned you and Gustaf for trolling.  Yes, fascists they are.

That place has turned into what the mod board here was when Inks was around.  All this talk of "stamping out leaks", questioning people's "loyalty" to the forum and the like.  If you read the leaked posts of Inks's final days as a moderator, the parallels to how people are now talking on AAD are quite eerie.  It's very sad.


It would be hillarious if not for the creepiness.

38  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Lord Melbourne on: September 30, 2015, 10:35:30 am
I don't know much about him beyond the Wikipedia page, but I do know that he was Prime Minister when my French-Canadian 4th great-grandfather was part of the Canadian rebellions against the British, and that it was his government that ordered the execution of several rebels, including my ancestor. So HP on that alone

Given all the blood he sheed, Melbourne's motto "why not leave it alone?" would sound ironic, if not that it was basically "let's protect the status quo at all costs".

Quote
plus he sounds like a creep anyway.

You can say that again!

Quote from: Wikipedia
Nonetheless, as historian Boyd Hilton concludes, "it is irrefutable that Melbourne's personal life was problematic. Spanking sessions with aristocratic ladies were harmless, not so the whippings administered to orphan girls taken into his household as objects of charity."[11]

I can already totally see this...

"Come, my poor little child. I'll fed you, make you warm and then I'll whip the hell out of you" Wink

Seriously, what a f**k up piece of s**t you must be to pray on defendless orphans like this? Imagine Melbourne with such immense powers over the country like Idi Amin.

You could also draw a parallel to Martin Van Buren: the 3 name deal

"Van" and "Buren" are not two diffrent names. It's one name.

My fellow Americans, I come before you to declare thyme of stupid and irresponsible governmenting is over. A capable person are in charge again.

This is exciting time, that brings us many new opportunisms. But first, this is a dangerous time too, so we must first unite around the Decider to be secure again.

And so I'm laying some ground directives:

1. Speaking of the 22nd Amending is terrorism
2. Ernest is declared the terrorist due to attacking my perfect grammer and spelinging
3. I made no decision without first speaking to Jesus and Bushie
4. Sea burial for all Muslims
5. If Tender doesn't budge to our pressure, I will bomb the hell of Lebanon
6. The capital of Lebanon is Tripoli, did you knew?
7. Stem cell researching is terrorism
8. Lethal injections for every house!

Thank you and may God bless on you all.
Cool

By virtue of not being a communist, obviously yes. However, calling yourself "anticommunist" is a pretty meaningless term in the modern U.S.
