Your "argument" is asinine, and a complete strawman.

Nice try at trolling though. You made up a reasonable story. Fiction but like all good fiction it sounds like truth.

Drlee wrote:Long before this execution, all states but Kentucky had banned public executions. The main reason was that the crowds started to side with the criminals and the authorities saw that the moral lesson of watching a criminal hang was lost to the reputation of the criminal and the carnival atmosphere of the execution.
Drlee wrote:So no Blackjack it had nothing to do with "liberals". It actually had to do with conservatives who wanted the moral lesson of an execution brought home to the crowds.

That's ridiculous. Conservatives are for the death penalty to this very day--not your brand of conservative, mind you. Opposition to the death penalty was clearly a Progressive issue, and still is to this day.
Drlee wrote:Pay attention and you will get it right. We are not talking about the death penalty. We are talking about public executions. They were stopped in ALL states including those which were arch conservative (Southern Democrat) in those days. The death penalty has been maintained in many states, mostly more conservative. That is not the subject though. In your usual disingenuous way you have moved the goal posts again. The subject is PUBLIC EXECUTION. That was done away with in every state including the most conservative ones. Why. Because, what I said.
Nice try though. I am sure the Trumpets did not catch your chicanery.

Three in four adults are overweight or obese. More Americans are sick, in other words, than are healthy. The total economic cost of obesity is estimated at $1.72 trillion per year, or 9.3 percent of gross domestic product.
Hey here's an idea i'll give you 1000 to one odds that you will never hear coming from Obese Donald: end the sugar subsidy, end the corn subsidy. It's the power of industry lobbying that is making us sick, it's taxing us twice, first to pay for the subsidy and then for the increased health care costs.

jimjam wrote:Oh come on Rearview, you are being absurd again. It is plain as day that Donald is obese and that America has an obese issue. I see super obese people every day now when, years ago, you had to go to the circus to see them. Regular obese is even more common. The truth is that Americans eat tons of junk/shit food and are unhealthy and dragging down our health care system.

Obesity in the United States is a major health issue, resulting in numerous diseases, specifically increased risk of certain types of cancer, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, as well as significant increase in early mortality and economic costs. While many industrialized countries have experienced similar increases, obesity rates in the United States are the highest in the world.
An obese person in the United States incurs an average of $1,429 more in medical expenses annually. Approximately $147 billion is spent in added medical expenses per year within the United States. This number is expected to increase approximately $1.24 billion per year until the year 2030.
The United States had the highest rate of obesity within the OECD grouping of large trading economies. From 23% obesity in 1962, estimates have steadily increased. 2014 figures from the CDC found that more than one-third (36.5%) of U.S. adults age 20 and older and 17% of children and adolescents aged 2–19 years were obese. A second study from the National Center for Health Statistics at the CDC showed that 39.6% of US adults age 20 and older were obese as of 2015-2016 (37.9% for men and 41.1% for women).
