Corey Booker drove to Hawaii?

This was during a debate on global warming. He recovers by pointing out Hawaii doesn’t have New Jersey diners.

Two questions for ya:

Arctic Ice increases 60% in 2013

Won’t see this on most media I bet.

About a million more square miles of ocean are covered in ice in 2013 than in  2012, a whopping 60 percent increase — and a dramatic deviation from  predictions of an “ice-free Arctic in 2013,” the Daily Mail noted.

Arctic sea ice averaged 2.35 million square miles in August 2013, as compared  to the low point of 1.32 million square miles recorded on Sept. 16, 2012,  according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. A chart published Sept. 8 by  NSIDC shows the dramatic rise this year, putting total ice cover within two standard deviations of the 30-year average.

Anyone still willing to debate the Hockeystick predictions?  This information comes from NASA.  That’s the agency President Obama decided didn’t need to waste our money with manned space flight and would be better suited warning the world of the perils of global warming.  Now, we got no manned space flight, and apparently no global warming either.

 

Killing for the fun of it

An Australian baseball player out for a jog in an Oklahoma neighborhood was shot and killed by three “bored” teenagers who decided to kill someone for fun, police said.

Christopher Lane, who was visiting the town of Duncan, where his girlfriend and her family live, had passed a home where the boys were staying and that apparently led to him being gunned down at random, Police Chief Danny Ford said Monday. A 17-year-old in the group has given a detailed confession to police, but investigators haven’t found the weapon used in last week’s shooting, the chief said.

That teen and the others — ages 15 and 16 — remain in custody, and Ford said the district attorney is expected to file first-degree murder charges Tuesday. It wasn’t known if the three will be charged as adults or juveniles. They are to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.

OK, this probably isn’t the most popular position to take, but this merits the death penalty.

The death penalty isn’t to be watered down and explained off as some failed deterrent to warn other people not to kill other people for chucks and giggles.  It is what it is.  It’s a punishment for committing a senseless crime that every kid knows not to do.  I don’t care if teens think differently than adults, they still knew killing people is bad and did it anyway.  They might have learned their lesson now that they are in jail, but that’s too late.  Christopher Lane will never get a chance to enjoy life, there is no reason these kids should either.  This might have been a whim of the kids, or it might have been a failure of the parents to instill proper values.  I really don’t care.  The fact is these kids didn’t see a problem with randomly killing an innocent person.  That gene needs to stop with them.  There is no good reason to putting them in prison with the possibility of passing that gene on to other kids.  We just don’t need it any more.
