Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Murderers, avail yourselves of Portuguese citizenship

A Black Liberation Army member who murdered someone in 1962, escaped from prison in 1970 and helped hijack a plane in 1972 has won a suit in Portugal keeping the US from extraditing him. 

The Portuguese court says it's been too long, which might be true of the hijacking, but I'm not aware of a statute of limitations on serving a prison sentence.   Seems to me like he should complete his sentence for the murder conviction since he was tried and found guilty.  But wait,  he's now a Portuguese citizen so all must be forgiven.


  1. If they want 'im, they can keep 'im

  2. I'm in between on that. I don't think it's right that he remains free in Portugal, but I'm glad he's not here and we won't have to support him and pay his medical bills.

    Though since the family of the person he murdered know where he is now the question may be moot.
