This is a video. But it is amazing and wonderful.

All you pro-death penalty people who say it's not about revenge or any other negative

reason have you ever seen the large groups of people who congregate outside of a jail when someone is to be executed who are cheering and having a grand old time that this person is going to die or has just died?

Are they there because they think that the murder rates is now going to go down and thus they cheer?

Are they there because this execution will make our country safer and thus they cheer?

Or are they just into revenge and like the idea of killing and use this barbaric practice to indulge themselves in something they would never do themselves?

If the death penalty does not make the homicide rate go down and indeed the evidence suggests that it causes the homicide rate to go up because it creates a society that condones murder. And if the death penalty causes the states to spend more money than they would if they person were just locked up for life. If it tortures the families of the criminals and if we are the last country in the civilized world to uphold it.

Why are these people cheering?

I really think it would be funny if the army decided it had to go somewhere and had to pass Bundy's

ranch on the way there. You know with tanks. The kind with big thingamajigs in the front that fire huge whatayacallits that blow things up.

I would just love to watch those idiots firing at those big assed tanks! Actually I think most of them would run home instead.

This may have been posted but there is now scientific studies with evidence that homophobia covers

regressed homosexuality and an authoritarian social system.

Is some homophobia self-phobia?

University of Rochester

Summary:

Homophobia is more pronounced in individuals with an unacknowledged attraction to the same sex and who grew up with authoritarian parents who forbade such desires, a series of psychology studies demonstrates. The study is the first to document the role that both parenting and sexual orientation play in the formation of intense fear of homosexuals.

Homophobia is more pronounced in individuals with an unacknowledged attraction to the same sex and who grew up with authoritarian parents who forbade such desires, a series of psychology studies demonstrates.

The study is the first to document the role that both parenting and sexual orientation play in the formation of intense and visceral fear of homosexuals, including self-reported homophobic attitudes, discriminatory bias, implicit hostility towards gays, and endorsement of anti-gay policies. Conducted by a team from the University of Rochester, the University of Essex, England, and the University of California in Santa Barbara, the research will be published the April issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

"Individuals who identify as straight but in psychological tests show a strong attraction to the same sex may be threatened by gays and lesbians because homosexuals remind them of similar tendencies within themselves," explains Netta Weinstein, a lecturer at the University of Essex and the study's lead author.

This is a couple years old but it is the first time I've seen it so I am assuming some other may have not seen it before either.

Obama Biden selfie.

I sent this letter to Rick Scott today. I think we should be asking simplistic questions and asking

for replies from these murderous governors who won't expand Medicaid. Here is my letter. I basically answered it myself but I asked him to answer it which I hope makes him squirm.

"There was a woman in the news today who could not get her prescriptions for her heart medicine and died.

I would like an answer as to why this woman died.

I know she was supposed to be on heart medicine and could not afford it. She made too much money to be on Medicaid and too little to be on the Affordable Care Act.

So I would like you to explain to me why this woman was unable to get her heart medicine and therefore died.

I would appreciate a prompt response."

This might have been posted before. 9 out of 10 poorest states are republican.

I missed Cassandra Lewis on The Voice last night but heard a small part. Where can

I hear it? Or is it somehow protected because ITunes has it.

(Just to note - that pisses me off.)
