Pour a sip for Billy Rae

He's not long for this world.
The U.S. Supreme Court has denied the application for stay of execution in the case of Billy Ray Irick.

He asked the Court to delay his execution based on his claim that he was mentally ill at the time of the crime.
Tennessee is set to execute him for the 1985 **** and murder of a 7-year-old East Tennessee girl, in what would be the first time the state has applied the death penalty since 2009.

    Wow, that guy should have been put down in 1986. Our system sucks.

    You wonder how a father sits through a trial like that for his daughter. It would seem an impossibility to me.

    From now on use "canola" instead. Marketers invented that word when trying to boost sales of rapeseed oil.

    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.
