Execution by nitrogen

Anti-capital punishment activists have made it difficult for states to carry out sentences with lethal injection so the search for alternatives moves on.

Oklahoma adopts nitrogen as possible execution method
OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - Oklahoma may use nitrogen gas as an alternative execution method if the U.S. Supreme Court finds the state's lethal injection process unconstitutional or drugs are unavailable, under a bill Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin signed on Friday.
Oklahoma's adoption of nitrogen gas follows Utah's decision in March to reauthorize the use of firing squads for executions if lethal drugs are not available.
Fallin, a Republican, said she supports capital punishment and believes executions must be performed effectively and without cruelty. 
"The bill I signed today gives the state of Oklahoma another death penalty option that meets that standard," Fallin said in a statement.~snip~

Voting advice from beyond

I've always joked that I'm conservative until I die then my vote will most likely go to the democrats.
It looks like the deceased hopes to avoid that happening to his good name.

The Conversation on "Gay Marriage" we're not having

In all the talk about rights and "gay marriage" not a lot of discussion has been had about the collateral damage done to children raised by "gay" parents.
They will be the causalities left behind in the culture war.

 The Gay Marriage Wake-Up Call

It's a long article but well worth the read.

Because She's a Woman!!!!!

This is from Campus Reform.
 It seems many students at the University of Washington can’t think of any reason why they should vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — other than her gender.
Campus Reform headed to Seattle, Wash., and asked several college students if they were “ready for Hillary” and why they would vote for her.
“She’s a woman, and that’s literally all,” one female student told Campus Reform.
“Because it’s time we have a female president,” another woman said.
I would suppose that a lot of these college students haven't learned yet what the purpose of the President of the United States is. This country elected Barack Obama who's only real qualification is he isn't a white male.

Now the big thing ,apparently, is Hillary is qualified because she's a woman and that's in spite of her having more baggage than a pullman car.

I wonder if their answer would be the same if asked about.... Carly Fiorina or Sarah Palin?

intergalactic Racism


College Apologizes for Serving Mexican Food During Sci-Fi Event
Stevenson College, part of the University of California, Santa Cruz, is apologizing to its students for serving Mexican food during “Intergalactic” night.
In a letter sent out to students, the college apologized for having “a Mexican food buffet,” while also featuring spaceships and aliens. The college received complaints saying the combination was racist because of the association between Mexicans and illegal immigrants.~snip~
I really enjoy Mexican and Mexican inspired cuisine  and I'll admit eating it while watching science fiction movies. Which I guess makes me an insensitive racist.
Colleges are getting to be the worst example of PC run amok with it's trigger warning sensitivity to the extreme.
Don't they have any idea how this makes them look to responsible parents out there who want to be able to pay for tuition for there kids at a school that will give them skills to succeed at life?

 There are some god colleges out there that will give students an education that's worth something and maybe that's what it'll take. Parents shifting their dollars to schools that won't pamper their little darlings so they face what life has to throw at them.

Harris-Perry, husband in IRS Dog House

Seems liberals ain't so keen on coughin' up the dough for the masses if it's theirs.

IRS files $70K tax lien against Harris-Perry, husband
The Internal Revenue Service has placed a tax lien on Melissa Harris-Perry and her husband, James Perry, for about $70,000 in delinquent taxes, according to a notice filed in Forsyth County Hall of Justice earlier this month.
Harris-Perry is a well-known host of an MSNBC talk show and a professor at Wake Forest University. The IRS filed the notice April 6.
In an email Wednesday, Harris-Perry said she was unaware of the tax lien but knew about the debt. She said she and her husband paid $21,721 of the debt when they filed their taxes Wednesday. The remaining debt, $48,581, covers a tax period ending Dec. 31, 2013, according to the notice.
Harris-Perry said she and her husband had been working to pay off the debt but had to deal with a series of personal crises that caused the couple to pay off the debt a lot slower than expected.
“We were aware that we would continue to need to work to pay off the 2013 debt,” she said in the email.~snip~
The IRS hounded me unmercifully for $600.00, I hope they inflict real pain on this pompous windbag.

New Star Wars Teaser

I'm old enough to remember the very first "Star Wars" when it was brand new, I was in my early 20's at the time and it was kind of exciting. Being a Sci-Fi fan I enjoyed it along with the next 2 movies in the series.
Flash forward a few decades and then 3 more came out and I thought they were so-so, Jar-Jar Binks was a real eye-roller.
Anyway in order to build anticipation for the next release for "The Force Awakens" a new teaser was released today.
I'm sure everyone who wants to see it has already but I'm potting it up anyway.

6 things we learned about the new ‘Star Wars’ movie
