Turn Penn St U. into prison complex. All that is needed is a wall around it.

You take someone's life...you desire to have your life taken also. Bring back the death pentality for the murders and make more room for the molesters.

There are two very strange news items today that suggest the underlying madness of their subjects. Here’s one, from the New York Times:

North Korean state-run television on Monday showed footage of costumed versions of Tigger, Minnie Mouse and other Disney characters prancing in front of the leader, Kim Jong-un, and an entourage of clapping generals.
The footage also showed Mr. Kim in a black Mao suit watching as Mickey Mouse conducted a group of young women playing violins in skimpy black dresses. At times, scenes from the animated Disney movies “Dumbo” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” were projected on a multipanel screen behind the entertainers; an article in the state-run press said unnamed foreign songs were on the bill.
Um, okay.

Then there is this headline from the friendly folks at that sanitarium of conservative weirdness, Breitbart.com :

What follows is about a gazillion words of political glossolalia from none other than Pat Caddell, who seems to have decided to demonstrate in a rather spectacular fashion that his recent gig as a Fox Democrat was just an apostasy appetizer.

You can read Caddell’s bizarre rant, which purports to be deep analysis of how and why Republicans ought to make the election “about” ObamaCare, if you want the kind of brain freeze that can normally be obtained only by eating a gallon of homemade ice cream. Keep in mind, however, that this is only “part one.”

I’ve always felt Caddell probably suffered from the kind of ego-affliction that accompanies becoming a national political celebrity at a tender age (he was famously George McGovern’s pollster while still a college student) and renders the sufferer incapable of believing that the world can survive without his counsel. Until quite recently, he was still getting op-eds published by the Washington Post, and was still posing as a concerned Democrat offering advice to his party. But now that his concern trolling act has gotten a little long in the tooth, he’s apparently decided to torment his new Republican friends with his strategic genius.

But if that doesn’t work out for Pat, Kim Jong-un could sure use some advice.

Would be interesting to find out what percentage of inmates at WWP are from other states. Many of the prisons in this country have prisoners, that have been transferred from other states. It is a big business. So think about it. Your taxes are going towards the upkeep of criminals from other states, while the Washington State is raking in the bucks for taking care of them.

As for executing criminals, how many criminals across this nation on death row, where found not guilty, because of a crooked system. Just think....one day it could be a relative of your brought up on charges, which he was not guilty of, but convicted and sentence to death row.

I'm for sending any prisoner, that is not a citizen of this country back to their country. Example: Mexico. I don't care what crime they have committed........send them back. Get rid of the trash.

Sail the illegals down to the other end of Mexico blindfolded to a place they are not expecting to be taken!!!.
I bet they won't like that treatment.
Not knowing where they will be taken, and its farther than they planned that they would be going.
That might detour them coming back.
People fear the unknown you know.

With years of Bill Clinton's jobs out-sourcing NAFTA FREE TRADE law- loss of jobs lots of poverty and misery- more people thrown in jail for small nonviolent crimes- like not being able to pay bills. The Clintons created this debacle , yet people vote for them- whyyyyyyyy???? Clinton has no answer for living wage jobs--- They're friends of the Walmart owners- little pay no benefits. BERNIE 2016
