Gadhfi Duck Dead As A Door Nail; OK, Fine

 

So. Longtime Libyan strong man dictator, and all-around wacky guy, Moammar Gadhfi is dead. Making the same plea to his rebel attackers as the many innocents he slaughtered, the Middle-Eastern strongman was summarily dispatched to Allah in a hail of small arms fire.

He was pleading, “Please don’t shoot me!” as his now rebel captors finally got him cornered. His pleadings of mercy must have sounded ghostly—empty and hollow—to men whose families and friends had likewise pleaded for their lives over the decades as the Allah-ordained Gadhfi ordered their executions.

I’m not a capital punishment sort of guy, but so long as they are sure this was the real McCoy and not one of the actors playing him, I find little fault in this execution. Same thoughts I had with Osama BL. Only when there is absolute certainty as to the identity and the crime can I be OK with killing. Even then, though, I’d rather see them rot in jail. There are some things worse than death.

Trust me.

I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing what life looks like with thick metal stripes running through everything in sight. Mostly my periodic visits have been here at home to the Travis County facilities, where my life-long buddy is the Sheriff. My overnight stays there are now almost like mini vacations since I know everybody and they know that I won’t try to escape.

But allow me to provide you with some elucidations in an effort to clarify my earlier comment about things can be worse than death. Have you ever seen a movie or read a book where some author or reporter spoke to the conditions in some foreign jail? You know, where they talk about the lack of sanitation and poor food and mean guards and vicious inmates. Tip of the iceberg, guys, nothing but the tip.

I spent a short time in a facility in Mexico where the nicest person I encountered was a man, my cell mate, who was locked up for killing his wife and her entire family. Seems someone ate the last of the barbacoa while he slept off his mescal drunk, and the guilty party refused to except responsibility. So, he executed them one-by-one. Once he fully sobered, he remembered that he was the guilty party, as he had taken the beef cheek meat delicacy to bed with him and hidden it under his pillow.

I wonder if his family members pleaded, “Please don’t shoot me!”

Me, I’d have placed Ghadfi Duck and Osama “Been Misinterpreting the Koran” Laden in the same cell. I’d make them spend eight hours each day strung out on speed with their eyes propped open with the same device Stanly Kubrick used in A Clockwork Orange. I’d fasten them tight in an uncomfortable chair and make them watch videos of people telling them what shits they are. Make them watch endless taped loops of people telling them how their lives were damaged from the miscreants’ actions.

I’d also feed them nothing but $.99-cent hamburgers from McDonald’s washed down with green Gator Ade. Rotten mother fuckers.

The world is a-changing, folks, no doubt about it. I’mma drink an icy Carta Blanca beer and contemplate me some shit. Manana, y’all.

    We all know that Gadhfi’s death brings joy,happiness,victory, to the people of libya,but come to think about that death is not the case but victory to the people of libya.the people of libya are free from the hands of Gadhfi, whose dream was not to the glowth and success of libyan but to distroy the peoples vision. Now he is no more to see the light, i want to ask for only one favour, the favour is to forgive and forget the entire family of Gadhfi and stop killing his children please just let the bygone be bygone please i hope good people of libya you will have favour and mercy on them thankyou

    Three names/same guy. Were it to me it would be so. One of the things that is troubling with a revolution is that it takes so much anger, and hatred and vengence to even fuel the start. Once in control, the anger, hatred and vengence becomes revenge. Same as when the Egyptians started raping newswomen in the aftermath there.
