    The problem with have an anesthetist (registered nurse trained to give anesthesia) or an anesthesiologist (medical doctor) giving the execution drugs, is that it’s not ethical for them to be administering it. (“primum non nocere”. = “First, do no harm”)

    My father is a retired nurse anesthetist. He’s always been uncomfortable with the thought of lethal injection for inmates. Because he’s always used his skills to help people, not to kill them.

    I think if they’re going to insist that the prisons keep using lethal injection, they should do some actual training to the people administering the drugs. Problem is, most teaching hospitals would probably not want to be known as where to go to learn execution methods.

    I personally think they should bring back firing squads, or the electric chair. I’m in Nebraska, they were still using the electric chair until just recently. Now all of a sudden it’s “cruel and unusual”.

    The way these criminals murder their victims is usually cruel and unusual. What goes around, comes around.

    It’s all fun and games until the alphabet soup of federal law enforcement agencies show up on your door, with a SWAT team escort.

    I seriously doubt a pregnant woman in labor could have done anything to hurt Obama, other than make him late for his golf game, or his selfie session.

    It’s supposed to be a punishment, it shouldn’t feel good. I don’t see what the problem is.

    I bet Nancy Pelosi is starting to wish that she’d read the bill.

    I will never understand why they had to ruin everyone’s health care to force this piece of garbage thru to give something like 1% of the population insurance. They could have written a law that would have addressed just the uninsured people, and left my insurance alone.

    They’ve now ruined my healthcare, and I’ve got a chronic health problem (MS). They’ve made what’s an already expensive health problem for me, even more expensive. I will end up going broke decades before I should have ever had to worry about. All because I have to pay for crappy insurance that forces me to pay for things I will never use. (maternity)

    I agree with you that if you’re not a strong swimmer, you should not be in a wave pool. I had a similar problem when I was a teenager in a wave pool (posted about it earlier in the comments). I was not, and still am not, a strong swimmer. I had no business being in a wave pool.

    It was probably my bad experience in the wave pool that kept me from getting into the water in the Gulf of Mexico when I visited it in Florida about 14yrs ago. If I did that badly in a wave pool, I knew I wouldn’t be able to handle an actual ocean with real waves.

    Crap.. Just had a flashback to nearly drowning in the wave pool at Oceans of Fun. In my case, I was on the side of the pool, directly below the lifeguard. Starting to go under when someone else spotted me, alerted the lifeguard, and then helped him pull me out. I was probably 14 at the time. Never went back, and I don’t swim in large bodies of water either.

    And there were way more people in the Oceans of Fun wave pool I was in than what you see on the videos in this story.

    I had a friend who used to use the kill-it-with-fire method to get cockroaches. He was in base housing at the time.

    0 is the worst president out of all 44 of them. Both Bush presidents were so much better as presidents. Nixon and Carter were also much better. It still baffles my mind when someone tells me that Obama is such a good president. I don’t think these people are paying reall attention to what is going on. They’re too trusting. They see, but they don’t observe.

    The only people making it “racial” is Obama and Holder.

    Darn, I was hoping they canceled it.

    Time to cancel that vacation to south Texas.

    Time to put the national guard on the border with their guns aimed southward.

    you read the story, right? The story is about a family in England. (yes, England also opened their borders to people who are robbing their citizens blind too)

    We should not follow England’s bad example. We need to stop letting thieves in.

    I’m surprised that 0 didn’t use his magic crayon, or his phone to stop the execution.

  • [3] June 17, 2014 at 5:58pm

    It’s about *bleeping* time they let her go. If I was them I’d move out of that state immediately.

    Chuck, stop being a putz… Nebraska is disowning you, and you’re going to be banned from all future Cornhuskers games.

    Don’t touch our guns. We don’t want to be Europe.

    I still don’t see how the execution “failed”. The end result was what they were aiming for. And if it was painful for him…I still don’t see the problem.

    It was a CiCi’s pizza restaurant. Maybe they were mad because someone was hogging the cinnamon rolls on the buffet line?

    No one should be threatening the guy or his family.

    I think he’s a traitor, and that he was an idiot for taking off like he did in the middle of a war zone. I also think his father must have “gone native” too.

    But no one should be threatening them. It just gives The Left something to kvetch about.
