He's in Alabama. Put him to work on the roads in a chain-gang, make him pay his own way instead of the tax-payers. Where is Joe when he's needed? In AZ, of course.

Your post was in response to a post made by the "The one", where The one gave an alternative to the ridiculous idea of capital punishment introduced by tinman01, and supported by ArizonaBear. In your post you questioned his logic, therefore suggesting that his alternative was not a reasonable alternative to capital punishment, without even providing an alternative yourself.

I guess I was wrong at giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming that you had actually read the previous posts in the thread before producing an opinion.

I have a more 'humane' option here:

How about copying/pasting Singapore's method of dealing with illegal aliens into US law? Simply have them flogged with a rattan cane prior to their deportation. Trust me............the mere thought of that would spook most of 'em into leaving ASAP

And then you question IA's moral compass?

Who says I have to provide an alternative?

Can you enlighten me as to how you have deduced that the poster was not serious? Unless you have spoken to him on another forum and are aware of opinions of his that others on this board are not, all you are doing is guessing, at best. To paraphrase, he asked if there are others who share his opinion that the illegal immigrant should be killed? It is possible that he was trying to be satirical but we cannot assume that from his post because he only made a simple straightforward statement. So unless he expands on his idea with another post it should be taken at face value, which is always the sane and proper thing to do in a debate-type conversation.

well if you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.

thats been my biggest gripe about this forum. too many complainers. not enough ideas or solutions. reasonable solutions that can be taken to the movers and shakers.

yall are too busy running around huffing and puffing about illegals to think things thru.

such reactionism.

let me guess, are yall gunna request the ICE be in NJ for the Mexico/USA match this weekend?

:

Your "biggest gripe is that there are too many complainers"? Hmmm.....What's your SECOND biggest gripe....and your THIRD? AS for ME, my main complaint is that too many of us have so many gripes.

I'd tell you more, but that might sound like I was whining.....and then you might have an even BIGGER gripe....and start complaining about ME..
