Should the death penalty be illegal in the united states?


If you read about Bundy"s life in prison, waiting nine years for his execution, you will see that the man exhausted every single legal point he and his lawyers could think of, all in an attempt to spare him execution. He "defended" himself in prison interviews by blaming pornography for causing his uncontrollable teenage libido, and for causing him to think of women as objects and not humans. He attempted to have his death sentence commuted to life without parole by explaining that it was all po...

Stricter gun control laws


Guns are a major problem in the US. People believe that more guns will save you. That is not the case. They can be stolen easily, especially by kids, if stored in the house and its just dangerous. I don't know why people are so in favor of guns. They are dangerous and bad. They say "Guns don't kill people. People kill people." That's just dumb. Yes the person used a gun to kill someone but a gun was still the weapon. It still killed someone. Our country needs very strict gun control laws. Massac...

The U.S media covers up black on white crime and over reports white or "white" on black crime.


I am not racist. What I am saying is a fact. Not all black people are responsible for the actions of some black people. Same thing with whites, Hispanics ect. Please no race baiting, racism or denying of facts. There is a double standard in the U.S media. If a white person commits a crime against a black person even if it is out of self defense as we saw in ferguson that event will be discussed and reported on a lot. If a black person commits a crime against a white person that crime will not...

Should the grand jury have indicted Darren Wilson?


Yes, I believe the grand jury should have indicted Darren Wilson. Yes, there was a lot done wrong on Michael Browns part but that is no excuse that shoot somebody 10 times. Why didn't he use a taser? Why couldn't he shoot him in the leg to stop him?...

Masonic(7,74) Code(4): GOD=7_4, 7/4=July 4th. Freemasons laid dow the BIGGEST code in history!


GOD=7_4 whereas G is the 7th letter, a circle, D is 4. The ancients observed the 7 Classical Planets: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and 4 of thee don't cast shadows on Earth (Venus does)/4 can't be easily seen during the day (Venus can be). There are 4 lunar phases roughly 7 days (~7.4 days) each varying due to apogee and perigee. Lunar year + 7 day week +4 days = 365 day solar year. Mars has a 47 year cycle where it retu...
