Death penalty as oxymoron

Who says death is a penalty and not a reward?

Since no one knows what happens to an individual after the point of death, why not make life the penalty?

How about making life on DEATH ROW among others also deserving of death row the penalty?

The judicial system or the corrections system can determine the appropriate conditions under which the convicted would be subject.

That’s my opinion and you’re welcome to it.

A Living Wage


Service workers such as waitresses, bartenders, fast food servers,  etc. are considered to be entry-level workers and paid only minimum wage.  These workers are expected  to spend half of their waking hours serving the business. This minimum wage is  not  adequate to provide  for subsistence living  for the individual.  The concept of minimum wage should be reconsidered. After all, these employees are also part of the business. And the business need not  gather such huge profits at the expense of the employees .

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Regardless of whether or not there are those who choose to disbelieve in climate warming, people are still going to have to adapt to different modes of transportation because of the changing weather patterns. It’s most noticeable in the changing patterns of airplane travel. Transportation infrastructure needs to be repaired and upgraded. My personal preference for long distance travel is the train. There’s no place I have to get long-distance in a hurry and the train is less hassle.
