    yea, i saw that on those little things that pass by at the bottom of the screen on one of those news channels.

    i think they need to stop locking people up for stupid shit, like drug usage and johns. also stop locking kids up for graffiti. it's not that bad of a thing. it's just paint. paint never hurt nobody. except for my homey. he got some paint in his eye one time.

    Ive been reading about this, Im sure at least a few people have heard about William Upski Wimsatt,

    his books are really good, they help you think about things in a different way. present new ideas and stuff.

    check out his book no more prisons, and his other one called bomb the suburbs:

    *Thank YOU!*

    Yes, yes...bump...Im a parent,
    I feel this shit for real!!!

    My beef-Why are so many of our schools
    diminishing, while so many of our prisons
    are getting refurbished?!?!?!?!
    'The fuck is up with that shit!!
    I have to donate glue sticks, and hand
    soap to my kids school, cuzz they cant afford it.
    Did you know, in one prison, they have
    a robotical shower, that goes cell to cell,
    giving each inmate a shower! For their protection.
    Theyre criminals! I can see that yeah, laws
    are incriminating people for stupid shit,
    but it seems like they want us in there.
    They make it all plush, making it like club fucking med!
    Who the fuck wants to leave? Free grub,
    free housing, showers, TV, weights,
    YOU CAN GET LAID!!! Drugs, money, its all there!
    Thats why so many keep going back.
    They get institutionalized, and like it. Sad truth.
    They need to make it harder, so people
    wont go back. And offer rehab instead of
    jail time for drug offender. Jail should be
    for murderers, rapists, molestors, and the like.
    Real criminals. And whats up with Federal
    prisons? Where they house 'White Collar'
    criminals, for federal offenses? Those are
    the most prettiest! huh!

    true about schools, its a shame. and its also true they want you in there.
    but theres no way the correctional system is like club med. not that it cant happen or doesnt exist, but most prisons are hardcore hell holes. ever been locked for a few days? probably, and it sucks. whens the last time walking 20 feet felt so good? the moral of the story is, dont let us catch you fucking up.
    the correctional system, in my opinion, is the only real reason for an american to hate america. your born poor, your average cant make it out, welfare. america will support you, meagerly and it will suck, but youll eat. or you can go for a golden goose, lets say sell drugs, for real, in the ill neighborhoods. either you get killed or end up in jail. or you get rich, your odds arent good, but it happens. or you can be a minor player in the wrong place at the wrong time and lose years of your life in a caged war. theres alot of desperate poor people in the world, and in jail. its sad, its a fact of life. then again theres alot of people that are straight criminals and can even manipulate prison.

    here's a conspiracy theory...

    if you have a climinal record, you cant vote.
    That's why so many black voters didn't get
    a chance to vote for Gore in Florida. So if
    the 'war on drugs' can remove the voting
    rights from so many africans, latinos and leftists,
    then only the moral bible-belt conservatives will
    be left to decide the future of the nation.

    Scary no?
