<quoted text>I know but its something that the State of California is looking at the cost involved to take care of the prisoners that are incarcerated and what is to say they will release more and make special exceptions to their releases to turn them lose into society if cost is the main factor which I know some prisoners were released under Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger do to cost reasons which I have always wondered just how many slipped through the cracks and were over looked and shouldnt have been released back into society.
That guy is a quadriplegic and his family is willing to take care of him; he was stabbed in the neck in prison, too bad he didn't die; either way, the state will support him and he's not a threat to anyone anymore. Have you looked at the growth in prison population in the last 10 years in California? It will make you sick. Why did this happen? Private prison companies contributing to political campaigns; the war on drugs fueled the stead influx of customers to fill the prison that the state pays to house.
The absurdity of the whole thing is mind boggling, but it happened, and it's going to happen in Florida as well, since the largest contributor to Rick Scotts campaign was private prisons; they also now want to put their name on the football stadium at FAU. What a disgrace. The prisoners released were non violent. It makes sense.

As it is becoming obvious I am craving you, and everyone else's attention here today, I will be practicing "tough love" with myself for the rest of the day. I will now be on my sockpuppet "ignore" list. It pains me to do this as I am one of my favorite socks but it is a labor of love. I am making the rest of my sock brigade look foolish and that won't do!!!

More embarrassing than Joe Buffoon Biden, I think not.

Homer you were supposed to pick me up at the cabin in the Adirondacks two months ago. Good thing I had my snowshoes otherwise I'd still be stuck up there.
You said to pick you up in April after the spring thaw. Don't even argue with me because I write this stuff down.

You forget, liberals have no dignity. Remember Keith Olbermann? I think he host infomercials for QVC and files lawsuits to make a living these days. Classic loser.

But you have to love the exchange between ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl and Jay Carney at Tuesday's press briefing.
KARL: The Secret Service told us that the tours cost $74,000 a week. How much is it going to cost for the President to travel later this week to Illinois?
CARNEY: Well, the president is the President of the United States. And he is elected to represent all of the people. And he travels around the country and blah, blah, blah.
KARL: How much does it cost for him to go and play golf?
CARNEY: Jon, again, you’re trivializing an impact here. People will lose their jobs. Three-quarters of a million people will lose their job.
KARL: This is about choices. You have a certain amount of–(then interrupted by Carney)
Carney never did respond to Karl’s question about the cost of Obama’s golf trips.
It was a good day for America.

It makes their blood boil that no one can come close to O'Reilly's ratings. Not even close.
