Do The Freakin Math

Liberals and conservatives alike frequently rely on limited evidence, personal experience, religious beliefs or gut emotions to determine solutions for complex problems. From immigration to global warming - taxes to terrorism - or health care to free trade - analytical study is rare. Science based policy making isn’t the way of Washington. And the consequences are catastrophic. Change is urgently needed. Just do the freakin’ math.

Beheadings by the dozen! And it's not news.

While the be-headings of two US journalist raises the specter of new US military actions in Iraq and possibly Syria, ISIS lags far behind our friendly ally Saudi Arabia in the head count. 

In August of this year Saudi authorities beheaded at least 23 people including a few convicted of low-level drug possession and one convicted of sorcery.   Amnesty International claims many of the sentences were based on confessions drawn from torture.  Other beheadable offenses include adultery, robbery, rape and blasphemy. 

ISIS isn't even JV.
