Comment NYTimes Editorial -State Without Pity-

Thanks to Ron for the this comment!


Where men are men and the sheep won't look them in the eyes. I don't believe that all Texans are a bunch of backwoods, Moronic, Goat Ropers but there are enough there to embarrass the whole state. They need to wake up and catch up with the rest of the civilized world. They seem to think that killing people in a prison execution chamber is okie dokie and people killing people in the streets is not okie dokie.

One of the sure truths I have learned, in this life, is this. When a government Kills, It shows its citizens that life is cheap. If the government shows that life is for the taking, Sooner or the later People will believe it. Some governments kill again and again making sure that the lesson sinks in. Is there any wonder why states that have the Death Penalty also have the highest murder rates.

Let me ask you this Cowgirl, If your kid steals a candy bar (or a plug of chewing tobacco) from a local store , do you take him back to the store and show him how you can steal one also. Does this deter your kid from stealing. Does this teach the kid that stealing is wrong? Wake up Goober and join the modern world.

I was always proud when discussing Texas with other Americans. It was an honor to have Texas in the union. More and more now I am becoming ashamed of that Great state which brought us brave men like Sam Houston and the defenders of the Alamo.
