If the GOP runs Christie, we may as well kiss this country goodbye, it will all be over by 2030.

No kidding, the ultimate hypocrisy

This poster (from around 1938) reads: “60,000 Reichsmark is what this person suffering from a hereditary defect costs the People’s community during his lifetime. Fellow citizen, that is your money too. Read ‘[A] New People’, the monthly magazine of the Bureau for Race Politics of the NSDAP.”
I dont agree with what the guy did, stealing files, it was clearly illegal. However, the response to his activity was so overboard it is sick. He was supposed to be let go on probation, but then a federal prosecutor took over the case, dragged the case on, and then brought up serious charges against him… the rest is the tragic history.

Whatever it is, it needs to be looked at. Privatization of prisons needs to go, mandatory minimum sentences needs to go, victimless crime need to be decriminalized… were blowing 35k a year on prisoners, and we have over 2 million of them, 90% for non violent crimes. This “justice” system benefits from sending people to prison, creates jobs for guards, parole officers, private prisons get money depending on how many many inmates they have, its disgusting. It is modern day slavery. Also, it is a double dip for our economy, 35k a year of tax payer dollars, and that person has no opportunity to contribute to the GDP while imprisoned.

The “Justice” system absolutely needs to be reevaluated… we are 4% of the worlds population but make up 25% of the worlds PRISON population
Soy : Drugs ? No . It is because of George Bush and all of those nasty conservatives. Probably due to racism since you know how ALL conservatives operate .

You are right. Many have called it the "prison-industrial complex". The cost of maintaining it is a drag on our economy, nevermind the people who are taken out of the productive sector due to 'victimless crimes'. It is the goal of progressives to make society conform to their wishes and to jail any dissenters

Unfortunately all the idiots who voted for this schmuck are too busy “Keeping up with the Kardashians” to realize he is busy ruining the country one piece of legislation at a time

Wow, does he want some sort of award for doing his job? The one the Senate was supposed to do for the last 4 years? Give me a break…

This just in: Obama calls the Algerian incident ‘Workplace Violence’ and not ‘Terrorism’

So did the original 1911 pistol, not too peculiar

Pretty disgusting, I have nothing against aiding people who really need it, but why on earth would anyone vote for a bill with all the bull in it? Take that stuff out, then vote for gods sake!

I disagree, I think Colbert was being pretty serious there… all the points he made were spot on

One simple way to avoid getting hacked: don’t download anything. If anything pops up on a website prompting you to install something, and the website is not a secured .gov site or what have you, don’t install it. Simple as that… you can avoid 99% of viruses just by doing that.

Lets just ban all violent movies while were at it, oh and violent books too. We can all just sit around and read MaObama’s little book of workers and friends for 2 hours each day in our homes cough* cells cough*

Yeah Tech youd rather just blow all our money on donating taxpayer dollars to Egypt, Libya, Palestine, the list goes on, so they can burn our flags in their streets? You dont see THAT going on in Israel do you? Get a clue

Yeah our punishment for criminals isn’t a bullet, but you do realize we make up 4% of the worlds population, but 25% of the worlds prison population. This is more from criminalizing EVERYTHING and throwing people in prison rather than actually deal with the problem, drugs/DWI/etc. Stricter punishment (more prison time) is NOT what we need right now, considering the taxpayer is going broke already, 30k a year per prisoner, 90% of whom are imprisoned for non violent crimes.
