Over the years, I've got to thinking about the same things (the prison, not the shooting). We make the U.S.A prisons too nice, say compared to a Turking prison. A Turkish prison is so bad that the return rate to a Turkisk prison is about only 5-10% so 90% to 95% of the people find a way to not get into trouble again.(Details are way too intense for this very nice thread.)You're a sick senior citizen and the goverment told you there is no
nursing home available for you. So what do you do?
Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You are allowed to shoot four Politicians.
Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating, air conditioning and all the health care you need!
Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great. Need a new hip, knees, kidney, lungs or heart? They're all covered.
As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you as often as they do now..
And who will be paying for all of this? It's the same government that just told you that you they cannot afford for you to go into a home.
And you can get rid of 4 useless politicians while you are at it.
Plus, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income taxes anymore. Is this a great country or what?
In the U.S.A. for someone living on the street and/or in a apartment with leaking roof, needing to bang on the pipes to get the landlord to send up more heat, maybe rat infested, bugs; a U.S.A. prison look very good with no leaking roof, not too cold in the winter, not too hot in the summer, some yard time with basketball, lift weights, talk with friends, later light duty work if you want it to keep busy working in laundry room or library, or kitchen, or some places making chairs and tables (and small knives).
I saw a program on T-V about an American woman in a Thailand prison.(Details too much for this nice thread), but just slight better (LESS BAD) is being in a room with so little room that some gals were trying to sleep sitting up, or needing to lay down where people were so close together that you woke up everytime someone tried to turn over in their sleep.
