  1. This is good news because it should never be a job to put someone to death. However, people who
    traffic in death and whose desires are satisfied by the death of another need appropriate sentencing.

    1. Sew them together one by one .
      Making a chain when the killing ‘ s done.
      Man to man and front to bum .
      Make them all be number one .
      Mom with knive,
      And Dad with Gun,
      A train that leads into the sun.
      ..
      ..
      Wuph.. creepy tho.. ain’t it.

      To know a person’s religion we need not listen to his profession of faith but must find his brand of intolerance. 
      Women’s rights arguments in favour of abortion
      Here are some of the women’s rights arguments in favour of abortion:
      • women have a moral right to decide what to do with their bodies
      • the right to abortion is vital for gender equality
      • the right to abortion is vital for individual women to achieve their full potential
      • banning abortion puts women at risk by forcing them to use illegal abortionists
      • the right to abortion should be part of a portfolio of pregnancy rights that enables women to make a truly free choice whether to end a pregnancy

  2. Congrats for her but….
    Let the Church pay to keep these people in prison for life then… No more Tax Dollars to do it!!!

  3. Yup. F.B.I. headquarters wants to house and lodge alllll their human resources close at hand in Virginia . It’s a shorter drive for when they pin another crime to your name you insurrection maniacs!

    1. I’m from the Uk   I and my colleagues gave him a try and it has been good returns of our investment, Thanks Mr Gregory

    2. Really y’all know him?, I even thought I’m the only one he has helped walk through the fears and falls of trading

    1. They’ve been chirping for the past five years. So has it helped them..? Has it worked..? More the opposite… they’ve been steadily driving people away from the right wing.

  4. In a couple of decades, Trump may turn out to have been a blessing in disguise. A deep cleansing of everything that has been wrong with large parts of America. If democracy doesn’t collapse under the weight of the crazy people first.

  5. I’ve been a licensed attorney in VA for over 20 years and didn’t think this would ever happen in my lifetime.

  6. Congratulations to the state of Virginia for making such a brave choice being the first southern state to end the deathpenalty. Ending the deathpenalty is a good way for a civilised society to show that it has matured. You can still be tough on crime and have humane sanctions. Life without parole for the worst crimes is sufficient in a modern civiliised society.

  7. Thank you Donald. May your malicious legacy continue to inspire the rest of us to build America back better.

    1. @VietnamNeko It has been established that it costs the state more to house an inmate on death row that in life imprisonment.
