7. It is necessary to keep the privatized prisons making a profit. Capitalism at its most shameful.

Crime is at an all time low. (saw on DU...didn't keep the link) What to do? Create new criminals.

8. This is an acceptable budget cut- we need to tell congress we are sick of locking people up

 



We are locking people up, paying $50,000 per year to for profit prisons, because they might hurt themselves- how stupid is that!

11. Neither party has the guts to end this.

Seems like citizens armed with ballot propositions are the the only wedge. But as long as the Federal government is determined to force this war, it's going to be really hard to make progress.
