    Biden seeks $33 billion war chest to support Ukraine, Zelenskiy wants quick approval.
    Reuters (Center) • Factual Grade 74% • 3 min read

    The funding request includes over $20 billion for weapons, ammunition and other military assistance, as well as $8.5 billion in direct economic assistance to the Ukrainian government and $3 billion in humanitarian aid. The full package represents a fifth of pre-war Ukrainian annual economic output. U.S. military aid to Ukraine has topped $3 billion since Russia launched [the invasion].
    ...
    Biden's proposal would also let U.S. officials seize more Russian oligarchs' assets, give the cash from those seizures to Ukraine, and further criminalize sanctions dodging. That would include letting the Justice Department use the strict U.S. racketeering law once deployed against the mafia.
    ...
    But the funding measure may face issues on Capitol Hill. Biden asked for $22.5 billion for the Covid-19 response in March and Democrats with narrow control of the Senate and House of Representatives may push to have that passed at the same time as the Ukraine measure.

Would capital punishment for drug trafficking reduce drug use?

Context: Singapore executes mentally disabled man for smuggling drugs.

HIGHLIGHTED COMMENTS

No - Capital punishment doesn't really work for anything, because the justice system and process is decrepit and slow. People do far worse things than use drugs and when sentenced to death they sit in a prison for the next 20+ years. Our system is too slow to be useful at all. If punishments were actually implemented and there were actual consequences for people's actions then maybe that would be effective, it is hard to tell though, since we do everything but that.


Yes - Absolutely. Just as capital punishment for speeding or jaywalking would end all but a very few instances of each. [...] The question isn't whether...



Unsure - The obvious answer would be yes - it's not worth the risk of death!...
