    As I understand it, there are a number of things. First, a number of the pharma companies don’t like their names associated with human death penalties, so more and more of them are refusing to sell the cocktails. AZ won’t even say what they gave the last guy. Second, MDs take the hippocratic oath to do no harm, so a lot of doctors won’t oversee the process (unlike vets who have no such restriction). As with firing squads, I believe there’s sometimes a double or triple blind measure so that the guards involved don’t know who actually killed the prisoner, so that adds complication. And lastly the personnel that administer the injections are not always well trained. A bad phlebotomist, for example can go through the vein. They may not inject things in the right order or rate. As Truist said, a long drop hanging would be more foolproof and efficient.

    Israel always relies on the “I’ll hurt you more”-style deterrence. The problem is that it plays into Hamas’ hand, as it helps radicalize more and more of the Palestinean population.

    Actually, it’s the wants to be wealthy that provide most of the jobs, as we’re told that most businesses are small businesses and that, in aggregate, they provide most of the jobs. So I guess the answer to your question would be yes.

    If you want to stick just with football, I’d say higher priorities would be breaking the monopoly protection and tax exemption, dealing seriously with the concussion problem, and breaking the rich white boys club (more Green Bays, owned by the town would be great). If you want to talk sports in general, where’s the out-cry about the Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians, or Chicago Blackhawks? This obsession with the Washington Redskins is myopic and silly. Trying to raise a sports team name – especially after all these decades – to the level of a national crisis is the epitome of silly. This doesn’t make the top 1000 issues of national priority.

    The trademark thing is a stupid waste of time; we’ve all got bigger fish to fry. States have already successfully limited “speech” on vanity plates (the state has veto power), and there have been several court precedents invalidating ownership of internet domain names, so technically the patent office may be on defensible legal ground, but seriously – don’t we have better things to do?

    As a leader, I think GHWB’s probably the best of my lifetime. The first time we went after Iraq, he got all the middle eastern countries on board and our allies to pay for it all. That was some effective diplomacy.

    Under Clinton, the R’s took both House and Senate at his first midterm, not second term.

    The real tragedy is that investigative costs a lot, takes time, and produces a lot of dry wells; most all news sources today can’t afford it. TV News is now treated like an entertainment cost center by the networks that must be profitable, as opposed to a civic duty incurred by the cheap use of public airwaves the networks get.
    Most networks and reporters today are too far removed from actually gathering news. It’s more like PRNewsWire
