Most of the time, it is not, but.. To say that torture is "never" acceptable is being overly moral and less intellectual about the situation.
Obviously, torture would want to be avoided, at all costs - but what if the subject in question knows the location of another known torturer/murderer who plans to kill 20 orphans?
The only time it is acceptable in my opinion is when we are doing it to save innocent lives..
..So why give the inhuman murderer mercy and not to go to any means possible to save innocent people, or children?
If Golf is a sport, chess, tic-tac toe, and Mini Golf are sports too What differentiates them? The line at what constitutes a sport should be drawn at requiring physical capability in a competitive way in order to partake in it.. And once an obese man has a good a chance as any at winning a tournament, I think that solidifies the fact that no physical capability is required whatsoever, putting it at the same place as "Monopoly" or "Darts", in my opinion.
Even if he didn't cheat in Florida, he was not elected by the will of the people In a confusing last minute turn events, a state run by the losing presidential candidate's brother is somehow miraculously won. Even still, GB is not the candidate most people want in office, but he still wins, because "people in smaller states are worth more than people in big states" under the messed up electoral college system. GB's presidential victory sounds more like something out of a political drama than real life.
