As the left has taken control of the mainstream media, I feel it is interesting that one individual can express themselves on the internet.

There are states that allow inmates to choose, but it is a very different matter for a state to impose a method like electrocution. No other state has gone so far.
Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center • Discussing Tennessee’s decision to reinstate the electric chair as a form of execution, as avenues have closed for obtaining lethal injection drugs legally. The state’s Republican governor, Bill Haslam, signed the bill into law on Thursday.

9/11 Memorial Museum Opens To Public

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 21: Firefighters, police, members of the military and the public participate in the ceremonial transfer of the National 9/11 Flag into the The National September 11 Memorial Museum permanent collection on May 21, 2014 in New York City. The giant American Flag, which was flying from a building beside the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 and was later found badly damaged in the debris of ground zero, was unfurled at the World Trade Center site in a ceremony. The flag was refolded and firefighters marched it into the museum. The National September 11 Memorial Museum opened its doors to the general public today. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)

The flag feels powerful. The other stuff around this museum evokes a different kind of emotion entirely.
