The Death Penalty

If murder is (usually) the crime, why should murder be the penalty? The fact is, your just killing more people.

To be fair, it does. Maybe there are even more. But there is a difference in killing a person and punishing them with jail. Now, couple no death penalty...

animals should have the right to bear arms

Animals should have the right to bear arms because they are otherwise left defenseless against hunters. Animals cannot at this moment defend themselves against poachers and hunters. With this civil right, animal will be given weapons donated to them and allowed to shoot or stab each other, and all hunters and poachers. The main rule of nature is survival of the fittest, and we are just leveling the playing field. If needed, the animals will be given a long sword and duct tape, WITH their consent...

"It is raining blood today. I open my book and write "Black Lives Matter" to acknowledge the unanswered injustices. I write "Blue Lives Matter" for how can any human be separate from humanity? I write "All Lives Matter" but stare at these words. Do they invalidate the others? I do not know. I am only a love poet. I stand conflicted but the clouds continue to bleed. I come to erase the phrase but find that the blood has already drowned my words." R13; Kamand Kojouri...
