“You're the silly one. You did'nt bother to look anything up. No matter where you work in America.....you have no rights. Here's a start for you.......go read....No Vacation Nation. Also, go look up what rights you have in the workplace. And when you start reading.....you will be rudly awakened....then you can see how silly you are.”
“Wendy, I like your train of thought on those munchies. I love the fruits & homenade food when stoned. Here, meet my Aunt Maria & she comes to you with a nice juicy pear for you. (pears are my favorite)”
“Hey Ruth, you hit the nail on the head & does it get people mad. It is a lot cheaper to execute someone as opposed to housing them for life. Bullets are cheap as is the electric is cheap too. (it costs fifty seven cents to electrocute someone)
No one seems to get that.”
“Andrew, everyone gets appeals.....death penalty or not. It is much cheaper to execute someone than it is to imprison them for life. Obvisouly, you did NOT research & you will not go there. I hit the nail on the head & it pisses you off.”
“Sorry, please try again. You just can't argue with fifty seven cents worth of electricity versus life in prison.”

“You even mentioned the reason that a death sentence is so much: the appeals. So how can you now argue that it costs fifty-seven cents when you are already aware that it costs much more? If you want to debate whether there should be a limit on appeals, that is a different matter altogether, and I would welcome a measured and informed discussion on this issue, but if you want to discuss whether it costs the taxpayer more to sentence someone to death than it does to sentence them to life, the facts are quite clear and support my statement: because of the lengthy appeals process a death sentence costs more. If you choose to dispute that fact, that's fine. You have the right to be wrong. And I you have the right to be sorry to, although I still don't know why you insist on being so.
Also, I'm pretty sure that it would take more than 57 cents worth of electricity to conduct an execution by electric chair. And the electricity isn't the only cost in performing an execution.
Sorry, this conversation appears to lack further value and no longer warrants my attention. Good day.”
“Years ago, I did some research on the death penalty versus life in prison. On executing someone......at the time....it costs fifty seven cents to electrocute someone. Now how can you compare that to the cost of life in prison? The legal wrangleing will always continue whether life or not.”
