    We have some openings for armed killer drone operators. It’s a growth industry.

    If some of the more obviously criminal bankers and corrupt money managers WOULD end up in the slammer, I’d be all for building more prisons!
    Sadly, there are too many NIMBYs out there to get enough new prisons built. Although, we COULD commute the ridiculous jail sentences of people sent to prison for 10 years for having a bag of pot, and open up some bed space for the people who really need to be in there!

    P. G. Wodehouse wrote a story about two ‘20s millionaires who were very competitive. Both started their six-month gaol terms on the same day, then after paying their debt to society, they both returned to their mansions.


    The universal perception of the ’20s was of a corrupt time when millionaires got their millions by illegal practices, for which most were eventually caught and sentenced to very short prison terms and minuscule fines, so after serving their sentences, they returned to almost all of their pre-conviction riches (and to the same practices that had made them rich).


    Today, the US has almost completely cleaned up its act (Madoff is the exception that proves the rule).


    Now, everything the bankers did was perfectly legal, thanks to the laws Clinton signed and Bush, Jr and Obama did not repeal, since those laws have full, universal, bipartisan support.


    Also, giving money directly to your congresspersons or to the White House is no longer bribery or corruption, that too is perfectly legal, so we no longer have any corruption at all in the US government, because everything congresscritters and the president do is now legal and honest under US law. ’The labourer is worthy of his hire,’ and delivering laws that help contributors is hard work for those congresscritters and the president.


    The president even has the legal right to murder any American citizen he chooses, and, by being killed, that citizen becomes a criminal terrorist whose murder was an absolute necessity.


    And every normal American fully supports the fact that the President is an absolute sovereign for four or eight year, that he IS the law, so he cannot violate the law.


    Only a few rabid left wingers like Mr Rall disagree with that reasonable and almost universally accepted position.

    In America …
    .
    You can walk into an HSBC branch and spraypaint the truth that “THIS BANK AIDS AND ABETS OUR TERRORIST ENEMIES” on the wall.
    .
    YOU will go to jail. The people who aided and abetted our terrorist enemies WON’T.

    The punishment cult LOVES building prisons! More cages to keep all those undesirables in- you know, those “people” who have the nerve to not be just like them. More profit for every warm body they throw in. Plus they make dirt-cheap laborers!

    We have plenty of prisons in Virginia, thanks to ex-Governor and ex-Senator George Allen. He built so many that we have to rent rooms to other states to house their overflow. He also appointed a person to head the prison system who is so aggressive with his desire to punish at every turn that other states are suing Virginia because of our cruelty and inattentiveness to safety. We almost put him back into the Senate, but the country lucked out last month….

    The State of Illinois is closing four of them. I bet they’d lease them out fairly cheap.

    Too bad we can’t put the rich who want to steal from the rest of us in prison. They steal our pensions and get bonuses, they steal our houses and get transferred to another subsidiary, they ruin the company and blame the union, then take their GD golden parachute someplace else. Class warfare is alive and well in the halls of corporate power!
