In a landmark decision, the U.S. Supreme Court bench handed down a ruling Thursday approving the death penalty for people who comment on articles without reading them.

In the highly publicized case, State of Texas v. Wilbur, state authorities had found internet user Edward Wilbur guilty of posting a comment on a story linked on his Facebook page, a news story Wilbur “had clearly never read.”

While most of those convicted under Texas’ recent state law banning commenting on news stories or opinion pieces without reading them get off with a few months of community service or a stiff fine, the “severe stupidity” of Wilbur’s comment reportedly landed him a shocking sentence of execution by lethal injection.

Throwing our allegiances to political parties in the long run gave away our liberty.

Where is when you need them?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

The writers at the BB have proved themselves to be some of the most witty satire online now days. They even have Facebook now blocking some of their articles because they hit too close to the bone.
Older men are to be temperate, dignified, self controlled, and sound in faith, love and perseverance. - Titus 2:2
