Chimpeach. NOW.

Just broke.

Key Bush Intelligence Briefing Kept From Hill Panel

Enough. Impeach every top-level administration official.

Worst. Administration. Ever. By. Far.

  • I have been witness to several administrations and have never ever seen one that could even come remotely close to this one for coruption, lies, and deceit.

    This entire administration should be impeached, and your previous post is a good example of why they should be impeached.

  • Econathiest, If justice isn't a form of vengence, then what is it?

    Criminal justice is about public safety... But it's also about punishment and restitution, which are forms of public vengence.

    Do you support Joseph Smith?

    Because the fact that you would lobby for a man who kidnapped a little girl, savagely raped her, and then squeezed the life out of her by crushing her throat says alot about you.

  • gooseneck - we can agree that murder is a touchy (and usually heinous) subject... especially murder of the innocent/young.

    But I still don't agree that criminal justice is about vengeance nor do I agree that it *should be* about vengeance; it's one of the first things first-year law students discuss in substantive criminal law.

    They're not exactly related words, by language standards, either...

    From Merriam-Webster's online thesaurus:

    Entry Word: justice
    Synonyms: equity, right
    Related Words: fairness, impartiality; goodness, virtue; honor; decorum
    Near Antonyms: bias, partiality, prejudice; corruption, foul play; crime
    Antonyms: inequity, injustice, wrong

    Anyhoo.

    Rejecting the notion of capital punishment does not equal supporting the criminal (or the crime, or anything else).

    A few things to reflect on... why is "cruel and unusual punishment" -specifically- outlawed in the United States? How does executing someone support the notion of restitution?

    /quick fyi for anyone else looking at this - this is in reference to a post over at MiaCulpa's blog.
