Why Did CA Fight To Keep Its Inmates In Jail? Cheap Labor.

Why Does CA Want to Keep Its Inmates in Jail?

Now, you may read that and say, “well shucks, if those are crazy nuts in those CA jails who like the stabbin’ and the thievin’ and the carryin’ on, sure, keep em’ locked up!” Or at least you would say that if you were a 1920′s gold prospector.

And hey, you might be right – but what about those who would be eligible to get out due to expanded parole programs or after CA passed its new drug laws? Those people did their time (much of which was assigned based on non-violent drug offenses) and now can go free, so why shouldn’t they, right? Well, lawyers from California’s Attorney General’s office don’t think the same way.

Why? Because inmates are nice cheap labor.

Impeach President Obama: Why When Where and How

by Dr. Robert Owens

In America today just like in Lake Woebegone every child is above average and every child gets a trophy.  We may score low in international grade comparisons but we rank number one in self-esteem.  In other words American students may not be doing well but they think they are.  Those of us old enough to remember how Dad could control the situation with a look and when you got in trouble in school your parents didn’t sue or contact the School Board you got in trouble at home too are also old enough to remember Watergate. 

This scandal that the general public still does not understand brought down a president and led to the Watergate Congress which threw away the victory in Vietnam and solidified the Progressive control of Congress until 1994.  Today we are confronted with contempt for the Constitution and the rule of law that makes the Watergate Scandal look like the tempest in a teapot that it actually was.  How many people died as a result of the Watergate Scandal = 0.  How many have died as a result of the Fast and Furious debacle = at least 200 and still counting including an American law enforcement officer.  How did Richard Nixon disrespect, disregard or violate the Constitution in the Watergate Scandal = 0 (although his use of Executive privilege did spark a constitutional crisis).  How many times has Barack Obama disrespected, disregarded or violated the Constitution during his time in office = at least twice as documented below by making recess appointments while Congress was still in session and refusing to enforce laws. 

There is an old saying, “That’s good enough for government work.”  This saying comes out of the big government make-work programs of the 1930s and has been used ever since as short hand for “Approximate is close enough,” which might as well be the new national motto.  In societies that rob Peter to pay Paul the stage before all the Peters change their names to Paul is typified by government bean counters picking winners and losers.  This process discourages producers and encourages non-producers assuring you get less of the former and more of the latter.  As an educator I have a belief that if you don’t teach someone to do something right you are teaching them that doing it wrong is acceptable.

Nigel Farage Wins Again – UKIP Wins Second Parliamentary Seat In Upset Victory

(Via Telegraph) The UK Independence Party has its second MP (Member of Parliament) in the House of Commons after Mark Reckless won the Rochester and Strood by-election.

Mr Reckless, the constituency’s former Conservative MP who defected in September, won with a 2,930 majority after a bitter seven week campaign.

The victory is further evidence that Ukip’s hold on British politics is strengthening after the party won the Clacton by-election last month.

This is What a High School Football Game Looks Like In a Police State


http://youtu.be/WqxZNipAdxI

Rader, a 17-year-old senior at PHS, said that after the officer claimed that he had pushed him Rader denied touching the officer. That’s when the ski-masked man shoved him backward into a walkway.

We can then see on the video that the officer sprayed the completely non-violent teen right in the eyes with pepper spray.

Major Protests Happening in Mexico 11-20-14

Today, Mexico City's central plaza (the Zocalo) was packed full of people protesting the government-sponsored massacre of 43 students. Protesters are burning President Enrique Peña Nieto in effigy and demanding his resignation, alleging his involvement with drug cartels in the kidnapping and killing of the students.

And of course, I don't have to tell you people, that the revolution is NOT televised. These pics are thanks to Twitter and Facebook.

¡Viva la Revolución!

Father Calls Cops On Son For Giving Cannabis Oil To Grandpa

This sounds like a family that doesn’t put the fun in dysfunctional.

In July of this year, J. Michael Robbins of Downers Grove, Illinois petitioned for an order of protection in DuPage County on behalf of his father, Joseph Robbins. The petition was filed to protect his father from his own grandson, David M. Robbins. David also happens to be J. Michael Robbins’ son.

Why on earth would anyone call the cops on their own son? Surely, he must have done something terrible.

Think again.
