for cutting and pasting again, but damnit, Ann's truths just
never get tiresome. Enjoy!
If I were a liberal, I would have spent the last week in
shock that a Democratic audience in Flint, Mich., cheered
Vice President Joe Biden's description of a policeman being
killed. (And if I were a liberal desperately striving to
keep my job on MSNBC, I'd say the Democrats looked "hot and
horny" for dead cops -- as Chris Matthews said of a
Republican audience that cheered for the death penalty.)
Biden's audience whooped and applauded last week in Flint
when he said that without Obama's jobs bill, police will be
"outgunned and outmanned." (Wild applause!)
I suppose liberals would claim they were applauding because
they believe Obama's jobs bill will prevent these murders.
Which reminds me: Republicans believe the death penalty
Which belief bears more relationship to reality?
In a case I have previously mentioned, Kenneth McDuff was
released from death row soon after the Supreme Court
overturned the death penalty in 1972 and went on to murder
more than a dozen people.
William Jordan and Anthony Prevatte were sentenced to death
in 1974 for abducting a teacher, murdering him and stealing
his car. They came under suspicion when they were caught
throwing the murder weapon from the stolen vehicle in a
high-speed car chase with the cops and because they were in
possession of the dead man's wallet, briefcase and watch.
The Georgia Supreme Court overturned their capital sentences
in an opinion by Robert H. Hall, who was appointed by Gov.
Hall said that the death sentences had to be set aside on
the idiotic grounds that the jurors had overheard the
prosecutor say that the judge and state supreme court would
have the opportunity to review a death sentence, which might
have caused them to take their sentencing role less
(If the facts had been the reverse, the court would have
overturned the death sentences on the grounds that the
jurors did not take their sentencing decision seriously,
under the misapprehension that no judge or court would
Prevatte was later released from "life in prison" and
proceeded to murder his girlfriend. Jordan escaped and has
never been found.
As president, Carter appointed Hall to a federal district
Darryl Kemp was sentenced to death in California in 1960 for
the rape and murder of Marjorie Hipperson and also convicted
for raping two other women. But he sat on death row long
enough -- 12 years -- for the death penalty to be declared
unconstitutional. He was paroled five years later and,
within four months, had raped and murdered Armida Wiltsey, a
40-year-old wife and mother.
Kemp wasn't caught at the time, so he spent the next
quarter-century raping (and probably murdering) a string of
women. In 2002, his DNA was matched to blood found on the
fingernails of Wiltsey's dead body. Although Kemp was
serving a "life sentence" for rape in a Texas prison, he was
months away from being paroled when he was brought back to
California for the murder of Wiltsey.
His attorney argued that he was too old for the death
penalty. He lost that argument, and in 2009, Kemp was again
given a capital sentence. He now sits on death row, perhaps
long enough for the death penalty to be declared
unconstitutional again, so he can be released to commit more
rapes and murders.
Dozens and dozens of prisoners released from death row have
gone on to murder again. No one knows exactly how many, but
it's a lot more than the number of innocent men who have
been executed in America, which, at least since 1950, is
What is liberals' evidence that there will be more rapes and
murders if Obama's jobs bill doesn't pass? Biden claims
that, without it, there won't be enough cops to interrupt a
woman being raped in her own home -- which would be an
amazing bit of police work/psychic talent, if it had ever
happened. (That's why Americans like g*ns, liberals.)
Obama's jobs bill tackles the problem of rape and murder by
giving the states $30 billion ... for public school
Only $5 billion is even allotted to the police, but all we
keep hearing about are the rapes and murders that Democrats
are suddenly against (as long as being "against" rape and
murder means funding public school teachers and not
imprisoning or executing rapists and murderers).
Finally, did Flint use any money from Obama's last trillion-
dollar stimulus bill to hire more police in order to prevent
rape and murder? No, Flint spent its $2.2 million from the
first stimulus bill on buying two electric buses.
Even if what Flint really needed was buses and not cops, for
$2.2 million, the city could have bought seven brand-new
diesel buses and had $100,000 left over for streetlights.
Rather than reducing the rate of rape and murder, blowing
money on "green" buses is likely to increase crime, since
people will be forced to spend a lot more time waiting at
bus stops for those two buses.
It's going to be a long wait: The "green" buses were never
delivered because the company went out of business --
despite a $1.6 million loan from the American taxpayer.
But if I were a liberal, I wouldn't acknowledge these facts,
or any facts. I would close my eyes, cover my ears, demand
that MSNBC fire Pat Buchanan and the FCC pull the plug on
Fox, and pretend to believe that taxpayer-funded "green"
projects and an ever-increasing supply of public school
teachers were the only things that separated us from
