This & That

The name for this blog was inspired by “One-eyed Jack” Williams who had a radio program in Phoenix, Arizona about 35 years ago.... His “Quarter Hour of This and That”. Everyday he started out the program with the statement. “It is a beautiful day in Arizona and I suggest, leave us all enjoy it.” It did not mater if it was raining or sunny, in the middle of a sand storm or cold and miserable. It was always a beautiful day. It is still my favorite way to start the day.

A few days ago Publius Pundit posted an artical titled, People Who Should be Pre-Empted Quickly by Dr. Clifton Chadwick. In this article he submitted a list of terriosts and suggesting that these people should be dispatched ASAP. There were only a handful of comments ranging from from "kill em off" to "you can't kill an idea". I posted a comment that got little attention but I was dead serious and I would like to expand on that idea here. Hopefully a few will read it and comment. Please read the article here, and then return for the rest of the story.

My comment was as follows..."Although I don´t disagree with the premiss of your idea that your list needs to be eliminated for the security and tranquility of the majority, your suggestions, to some would be a call to arms and take us all on a dangerous road to total chaos. Depending on which side you were on, it would give licence and perhaps justification to eliminate anyone that spoke out against your personal beliefs.

Therefore, these people who, in our opinion are the instigators of terrorist movements for whatever motives, in whatever part of the world need to be tried in an international court that represents the free world, and if found guilty of crimes against humanity, for whatever cause, ordered to be brought to justice.

It just depends whose ox is getting gored as to who is on whose list....For that reason, new laws of accepted behavior need to be made.

Are the nations of the world ready to give up part of their sovereignty and agree to such a tribunal?"
