Of course you probably haven't analyzed the issues and facts pertaining to the United States, so let me enlighten you. By the way you phrase your comment, and the tone implied, you think the U.S. executes law-abiding, honest, ordinary citizens arbitrarily.

In fact, in the United States, we execute criminals who have committed especially heinous crimes, such as mass murder, brutal murder, rape and murder repeatably, baby killers, etc. These are criminals that are by far more dangerous to society than they are good. We execute them as punishment for their crimes, and as a statement. The number of people executed compared to the number of crimes or criminals is astonishingly low. Once again, we only execute people who have committed heinous crimes.

Regarding our environment. I have no idea what you mean by regulation of emissions. Do you think that exhaust from automobiles produces that much pollution? I'm not denying that it produces pollution, but enough to destroy the environment? Come on, let's be realistic, not in Al Gore land. Global warming is a myth. To think that man can change the climate of the entire earth because of burning coal, gas, and oil is rediculous. Forest fires and volcanoes produce much much much much more carbon dioxide than we do, yet our climate is still fine.

Now, obviously you have just jumped on the anti-bush bandwagon. Have you had an original thought on the subject, or are you just running your mouth for the sake to be herd? The fact that George W. Bush went to Yale and got an MBA at Harvard obviously doesn't register in your mind. Can you get into Harvard or Yale? Only about .01 of the population have the prerequisites to apply to Harvard and or Yale, so to call President George W. Bush as possibly the dumbest leader in history just reflects upon your own stupidity.
