Well put

One of the things that has always bothered me about the death penalty, is that it creates yet another circle of victims. These victims will never see justice, because the murder happened at the behest of the state. Imagine the horror his 12 year old daughter felt, as she watched her father being gunned down, after the U.S. military invaded her home.
There's a lot in the details of her post that I don't agree with, but as far as the "big picture" goes it's an excellent point.

And now, RESOLVED: that this will be my last post on the whole stupid topic.

So I'm standing around at a sparsely-attended anti-war rally today, and a passer-by walks up and says to me "You vote for Obama?" I go, "No." He says "Cause Obama, he's worse than Bush!" And I say "I agree," and he cuts me off there and says "Now, Bush, he would've shown us the corpse!" and tells me that we have to bomb Libya because of Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration of Independence and One Nation Under God who is Jesus Christ of Nazareth and if the Muslims don't like it they can go to hell, and I thank him and walk away.

It's astounding how many people are upset with the whole thing because either Bush should get credit or he would have done it better or both.

"Astounding" might not be the right word. "Wearying" might be a better one.
