Janet Kuypers poem \"What I Would Ask\" 09/20/05 at \"SIN\"Janet CHARITY VIDEOS - DONATION VIDEO CLIPS - ORGANIZATIONS

Janet Kuypers read this poem in the September 20 2005 feature live at the Cafe in Chicago called \"SIN\" (standing for Scars Internet News), because this low-key show was of Kuypers playing the role of newscaster, with newscast music in the background (complete with the constant noise of typing on typewriters), reading stories from around the world. They opted for this performance to not have a ton of lights for her \"broatcast\" performance art show (and to not even use a microphone), and they moved to a back area of the performance space, where there were couches and comfortable chairs that people could sit in - much in the way that they would be sitting down to watch the news on TV.For more information on Janet Kuypers, go to http://www.janetkuypers.com to learn more about her work.\n\nFollowing is material form this show:\n\n\nWhat I Would Ask\n\n\nViolence, even well intentioned, always rebounds upon oneself.\n -- Lao TzuI hear radio talk show hosts\nlike Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity\nand I listen to our religious President\n\nI hear these radio talk show hosts\npraise the life of an unborn child\nor try to save Teri Schiavo on life support\nI know some even run charities\nor help natural disaster victims\n\nkind people,these Republicans\n\nthen I hear that Texas\n our President\'s state\nhas put ten times more prisoners to death\nthan any other state since the seventies\n\nI then even hear Republicans protest\nthe Supreme Court\'s decision\nthat minors shouldn\'t get a death penalty\n\nwhen I heard about their love of lifethen heard about their hatred of life\nI wondered if I was the only one\nwho saw their moral confusion\n\nso when I hear these radio talk show hosts\nget on their high horses over the radio waves\ndownplaying anyone\'s arguments\nand galloping away on their steed\nI\'d like to call in\nto ask them the question:\n\n\"Excuse me, I see that you Republicans\nseem to revere life so much,from the unbornto those on life supportwho need our helpso I have to ask:how can you support the death penalty?why do you revere some lifethen decide to exterminatesomeone who committed a crime?I\'ve heard you talk about the evils of abortion,but why,when its wrong to kill a fetus,a life yet to breathe on its own,why it is okay to kill peoplewho have been breathing for years?\"but hey, mister President\nwhen our country\'s now so far in debt\nbecause of your \"war\"\nmaybe we could start to save money\nby not killing prisoners?\n\nI mean, the death penalty doesn\'t deter,\nand it costs more taxpayer money\n when every man on death row \n gets appeal after appeal\n while every taxpayer\n pays the court costs,\n the judge costs\n and the government-appointed lawyer costs\n Hell, with the death penalty we still pay \n for their food and keep in prison for years\nso if we spend more money killing people\nthan keeping them in prison for life\nwhy don\'t we learn to bemoral\nand cut financial corners\nto help out the economy?\n\nbut I\'m sure those talk show hosts\nwould cut me off\ndiscussing the heinousness of prisoners\' crimes,\nbut I\'ll try to ask them \nwho made them the judge\n\nI\'ve heard death penalty supporters claim\nthat the bible supports the death penalty\nthough they don\'t say where\n I suppose that in the Old Testament\n God killed entire towns, flooded the earth\n but according to their religion\n God is the judge\n not them\n\nI\'ve heard these supporters say they\'re religious,\nChristian, like their wonderful President,\nand then they say they support \"an eye for an eye\"\nwhich is when I wonder why\nthey\'re referencing the Old Testament\n not that there\'s anything wrong with the Old Testament\nbut they\'re referencing the Old Testament\nnot their Christian New Testament\nthey\'re not listening to Jesus\' words\nwhen he told them to\nignore what his father said\nbut do as he does\nand love one another\n\nJesus said to turn the other cheek\n killing someone is hardly \n \"turning the other cheek\"\n\nI mean, where is their Christian forgiveness \nwhen they sentence people to death?\nand wait a minute,\ndo these Christian people believe\nJesus would support their death sentences?\n\nit makes me think of terrorists\nwho support killing people \nwho don\'t believe in their God, in their way\nwe find terrorist behavior abhorrent\nand we sit here behind our mighty Constitution\ndeciding who lives and who dies\n\nbut our Christian President likes playingGod\n the Presidency mustn\'t be enough for him\n\nI guess President Bush is now running this casino\nand he just keeps saying to himself,\nbecause he has to be right,\nthat the House always wins
