Private prisons are one of the largest corporations in history to profit directly from the misery of people, and now they want to buy out state-ran facilities. The main stream media is not helping matters either as they simply sweep the details under the rug, and promote the false notion that criminals get what they ask for. Most American citizens live under the philosophy simply because they grew up hearing, “Lock them up and throw away the key.” What would you think if you found out that most of the inmates in private prisons really do not belong there? Not in prison, anyway. Laws are being created due to the heavily financed lobbying by CCA and GEO Group which are purely passed to increase the prison population. Why? Because for every inmate housed, those who own stock in a private prison profit each day per each inmate. There are no losses… pure profit.

Virginia’s controversial transvaginal ultrasound bill hit one Republican lawmaker close to home. In the bedroom, to be precise. He said a fellow lawmaker’s television discussion of the bill cost him sex with his wife.
A rare thing occurred here at home last week…. I woke up to a bit of snow on the ground. I now live south of Albuquerque, almost to the Isleta Pueblo, and close to the bosque (Rio Grande river). We simply just do not get much snow, if any, here. Plenty in the mountains and high desert, but not down in the valley where I live.
“Kaleidoscope” is one of the first WordPress blogs I ever subscribed to. Although I am not positive, I believe he resides in India (tskraghu, if I am wrong, I do profusely apologize, and please correct me). Regardless of his exact locale, he always has wonderful stories to tell, and often they are folklore indigenous to various countries and cultures.
