Hail Caesar--Oops, I Mean Hail to the Chief

The NYT reports that Obama intends to force BP "to create an escrow account reserving billions of dollars to compensate businesses and individuals if the company does not do so on its own."

Yes, according to White House spokesman Robert Gibbs, "The president will use his legal authority to compel them."

Hmm. Since the president has no legal authority to do so, I guess Gibbs meant to say the president will use illegal or unconstitutional authority to compel them.

Folks, it doesn't matter if you sympathize with the intent of what Obama's trying to do here. The powers he is assuming are the powers of a dictator, not a president. If we keep letting him and other federal officials slide, we will find ourselves in a bad situation.

Capital Punishment In Utah (and Everywhere Else) Sucks

As Utah prepares use a firing squad to execute a convicted murderer, many critics speak to the barbaric nature of the method.

Really? Is the injection of poisons that first paralyze the muscles (so that they cannot writhe in pain) and second arrest the respiratory and circulatory systems so much more humane?

How "painless" would lethal injection appear if the first poisons did not render the victim's muscles immobile?

I'm not trying to excuse execution by firing squad. I'm trying to refute the notion that there is any way to murder a man humanely.

How is the lawful execution of a convicted murderer inhumane?

The answer is simple. The only moral excuse for intentionally killing another man is out of self-defense or the defense of another innocent party.

By the time that the state carries out capital punishment, there is no threat to anyone. The bad guy is in custody and under wraps.

Justifying the execution on the grounds that the bad guy might escape would similarly justify me killing anyone on the street because anyone might at anytime might decide to kill me.

That dude in the suit might have had a gun that he might have drawn and fired at me.

Remember When Obama Promised to End the War and Bring the Troops Home?

Remember when Obama and his people chanted "Yes we can"? Remember how he promised to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay? Remember this and Ron Paul's response? (HT2 Robert Murphy).
