It is amusing to witness the bleeding heart liberals as they intervene and halt the executions of heinous, vicious murderers. They claim that killing is wrong. Mass murderers, they believe, should spend the rest of their lives incarcerated, at taxpayers expense, even though the murderers showed no such considerations for their victims. Ironically, these same do-gooders support the aborting of a living fetus, the weakest among us, for no better a reason than it might crimp the cash flow in the 2nd or 3rd trimester, or was inconvenient as was the last 5 abortions, masked as birth control. Of course the vast majority of these are at taxpayer expense.
Granted, the appeals process is likewise financed by the taxpayers and can run from 15 to 25 years, depending on jurisdiction and level of bleeding heart concern. But now we must have doctors administer the lethal injections, which violates the Hippocratic oath, exposing them to license suspension.
It is amusing, because at the rate we are warehousing murderers, rapists, pedophiles, and other violent offenders, we are committing a higher and higher percentage of our discretionary spending to incarceration, protection and appealing sentences of the worst of the worst of our violent offenders. Therefore, at some point, we must begin sacrificing other entitlements and budgets to insure appropriate funding for these incorrigibles.
I can’t wait until the day our government notifies pensioned workers that their retirement checks will be cut to provide funding for inmate appeals. I silently muse at the thought of SSI beneficiaries having to cut back on cigarettes, beer and Twinkies, so that serial rapists can have adequate housing, once released. I chortle at the notion that all government employees will have to forgo wage increases or endure higher health insurance co-payment, so that inmates can complete sex changes, cosmetic surgery and receive Viagra.
No, I predict that once the pain of funding these ridiculous mandates hit’s the doorsteps of the whining Liberals, there will be a brawl to see who is the first to pull the lever, drop the pellet or inject the no-good, rotten son-of-a-bitch, who raped and killed that poor little girl. Better we should hang high the worst offenders than threaten our $10 office co-pays, our bloated benefit packages or our obscene retirement plans. Better yet, we should take these funds from millionaire farmers, paid to not grow crops. You would see thousands of acres donated for ‘dirtball graveyards’ before one farmer would give up a dollar of his financial gravy train.
Get ready America. This day is coming and the more we spend on health care, legal appeals and state-of-the-art facilities, for the lowest among us, it will be sooner rather than later.
