These were bad men, and the whores weren’t ladies. Paul Newman said this in the movie “The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean,” and though not historically accurate, it transcends to the present day, and the infamous Facebook murder. The absolute inhumanity of the LiveFeed on social media of the indiscriminate killing of an old man on Easter will be forever burned into the memory of America, if not the world. Law enforcement searches for the killer, and the rest of us search for the answers. There are no answers.
If nothing else, the Open Carry Movement in Texas proves one thing; there ARE bad men, and some of the whores aren’t ladies. The paradox of the liberal left leaves the thinking world speechless. A group that will hurl M-80s into a crowd of Trump supporters, yet cry alligator tears for animals who kill old men, and celebrate the mass execution of the unborn, our most defenseless citizens. You must ask yourself, if a section of the population is all concerned about emissions from your car as you drive to work to pay for their food stamps, and medical care, how on earth can they condone free air and food for life for Steve Stephens? I’m just a simple old boy from Austin, but did I miss something here?
Mankind has struggled forever on the best way to dispatch persons who have used up their air through their own actions. Death by trauma was the preferred method until the French Revolution when the Guillotine was introduced, and in a brilliant stroke (please excuse the pun) it was arrived at that if a head was quickly removed the chances of survival were significantly reduced. They needed a flock of doctors to figure that out, I crappith Thee NOT!
Since then several methods have been developed, hanging, gas, injection, and good old firing squad, as states and nations worked their way toward the perfect end to the imperfect life, and the debate over this has lent humanity to the most inhuman of the human race. These are bad man, and the whores aren’t ladies. While I support the rule of law there is a breaking point where common sense needs to prevail. That breaking point comes when an old man is gunned down for all to see, and someone starts worrying about the rights of the killer. If you are one of those people have I got a bridge foe you, and it’s on SALE!
We need to stop trying to understand people like this. People who kill old men, children, women and then go years either getting an appeal, or finally going to execution after living practically their entire lives at our expense. These were bad men, and the whores weren’t ladies. Does that offend you? Try watching that video and then come back and tell me all about it!
Post Script: My father used to walk behind supermarkets collecting cans. Wasn’t much money in it but he thought it was a good thing to do. As we move past this tragedy we must always remember Mr Goodwin’s gift to our country. In this time of division, and challenge THIS black life mattered to all of us, white, black, young, old, liberal or conservative. Thank you Mr Goodwin. Godspeed on your way home.
