Your Say

May the Sovereign of the Universe bring him all he deserves

And you say there is no good news.

MY prayer would be to send him down, down, DOWN.
BUT: since that's his request...GLADLY!

Too bad he doesn't have Obamacare.

Harry…..you're a Godless old bastard and I hope you never recover.

Posted by: jack at December 20, 2013 3:33 PM

Die you MF.

Die you MF.

Don't get your hopes up, only the good die young.

There's a lot of Rasputin in that old boy.

Posted by: John at December 20, 2013 4:37 PM

Yes, but when he was just a boy and he looked deeply into Rasputin's eyes and said, "Daddy, are you sure this is the right thing to do?"

Is it wrong to pray his ulcer perforates and peritonitis overtakes him in, say a week or three?

Posted by: ignore amos at December 20, 2013 6:06 PM

Not at all. This is a Prayer Free Zone.

Old Dingy Harry is No. 7 on S.Weasel's Celebrity Dead Pool. As I have The Bastard in the WH as my selection, it's hard for me to pull for Harry to pass first, but I'll sure pray for him to come in a close second. I don't respect gun free zones either. Pray without ceasing, and never go unarmed.

Although the Psalms and other Old Testament passages have examples of godly men praying for the death of their oppressors and enemies, many of my christian brothers say that it is, if not a sin, at least un-Christ-like to pray for the death of anyone. That may be so, but I find no prescription against saying that I would not shed a tear if he died a painful death. (I'm not sure if there are proscriptions against grave-dancing, though.)

He'll be ok in his own place, it just hasn't been dug yet.

Posted by: itor at December 20, 2013 8:48 PM

I have never wished for another man's death. That isn't to say there aren't men whose obits I would read with pleasure.

Posted by: Jimmy J. at December 20, 2013 9:53 PM

I hope he receives what I hope never to receive:


*I do not want justice; I want to be treated much better than I deserve.

It can't be a looming indictment.

Not with Holder standing guard.

Posted by: TmjUtah at December 20, 2013 11:25 PM

The strange thing is, Harry is really a very mediocre fellow, and that is being generous. I've run into him a little bit over forty years. I see Nancy P as being in the same mold of half-witted stumblebums. The evil talent must be lurking unseen.

To bad the Republican talent isn't lurking anywhere.

I hope he lives and does not suffer too much. I also hope his doctor strongly advises him to retire immediately, and that he listens.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrestled with more than just praying for the deaths of evil men when he came to the conclusion that you may have to kill them to stop even greater evils.

Posted by: Jewel at December 21, 2013 6:26 AM

Jewel, I agree with Bonhoeffer. When can we start??

Posted by: Jack at December 21, 2013 7:58 AM

"I could not attend his funeral, but I did send a note saying I approve."

Posted by: Dave at December 21, 2013 11:18 AM

Jewel, Thank you for bringing up the Bonhoeffer book by Mr. Metaxas. I just finished reading the book and would have to regard it as the most important book I have read in a decade.

In light of Dietrich Bonhoeffer's philosophy and life I would say that the removal of tyrants by any means possible would be fine with our creator.

The book is a must read in my opinion and I am not by any means a bible toter.

Just look at the damage Mr. R has done to our nation.

Posted by: Terry at December 21, 2013 1:32 PM

I too, have recently read Metaxas' Bonhoeffer. It's had a profound effect on my life, and the parallels to events seventy-plus years ago, keep me awake most nights.
