I wasn't done w/ my last reply to you... I had a 911 to take care of....
Phage....who are you willing to give 20,000.00 dollars to....the young Student? Or the Mother and Father that has never been to prison, that cannot
afford an education?
If you say the Prisoner I know you're lying for the benefit of dis-agreeing w/ me. Our current Prison system is not working. And I know the Prison
system and no...not because I broke any laws. Most hardened prisoners will throw out there that they don't mind the (let's say ) 5-10 yrs they just
got...they can do it standing on their heads!! Har har har. 3 hots and a cot.
Did you know that Joe Arpaio took away cable T.V. In his jail...turned it off! But, turned it right back on again because it's a federal law these
guys get cable T.V. Are you kidding me? So if it's a federal law why am I paying for my cable??
You and many others act like we owe it to these guys to rehab them. In my opinion...no we don't. I Tracy have known the difference between right and
wrong for many years now. I can honestly say I started realizing the difference around 2 yrs of age. I knew that biting my twin brother was wrong. And
I knew it hurt him. I also knew that if I bit him there was going to be something coming I didn't like. I may not have not been able to articulate
it, but I knew.
You must be 18 yrs old legally to enter adult Prison. The Majority of the people have said that 18 yrs and older know the difference between right
and wrong and if you break the law we will hold you accountable for that.
When you then go into prison after breaking a law and you get Cable T.V., Education, Counseling, Access to Computers, Telephones, Day rooms w/ Games
and Books, Weight Lifting programs, Movies, Free Rent, Free Food, a Job....where's the incentive not to re- offend?
In regards now to my point about NASA...they get free labor and the prisoner gets an education to possibly be able to go out into Society and find a
job making 50,000.00. A student that has never committed a crime gets to go to Iraq, into an illeagle war so that he can afford an education so that
if he lives he can get a job pulling in 50,000.00 a year. That makes absolutely no sense and not fair. Send the prisoners to Iraq to fight an
Instead of emplyeeing a select group of inmates...how about you hire a select few citizens that need a job in able to survive? It's a proven fact
that people offend and re- offend because of economical reasons. So it makes sense to employee people on the "Outside" so they don't get desperate
and break any laws so that they can live. People have to go to jail to get a decent job?
Hey, Didn't Taxpayers Pay For Those Patents NASA Is Auctioning Off? from the i-thought-so dept ReallyEvilCanine writes in to let us know that
Ocean Tomo, the patent auctioning company has worked out an agreement to auction off a package of 25 NASA patents covering things like signal
processing, GPS for spacecraft and sensor technologies. Ocean Tomo always presents itself as somehow creating value from patents, but always seems to
ignore how its version of creating value often means significant value lost to actual innovators. In this case, there's an even bigger question:
didn't taxpayers pay for those patents by funding NASA? So why is some company now going to benefit from them, while locking the public out? In
effect, the public is paying twice (at potentially inflated prices) for these inventions. Yet, you won't hear that from Ocean Tomo or the press
reports about this auction, which note: "Creating a market for patented technology funded by NASA benefits both the government and the commercial
sector that will take advantage of it." That leaves out the taxpayers who funded this in the first place and is simply incorrect. It harms the
commercial sector by making them pay again for something. If NASA wanted to benefit the commercial sector, it could have placed those patents in the
public domain, so that the commercial sector could compete to do something useful with them, thereby spurring on competition and more innovation.
Is patents the only game in town for NASA...I think not. However....the money that NASA gets from tax-payers, me, would be best spent by giving the
Student, The Family member that's trying to support their family, that has not committed a crime, those are the people that should get our tax
dollars and not to the Man that raped your Mother or stole her retirement. As a tax payer, if anyone needs Government money to survive ie Food
Stamps, General Assistence, I want them to work for it instead of being able to sit at home and collecting checks.
Prisoners act entitled and they should absolutely have no rights... They gave up those rights when they committed a crime because they did know the
difference between right and wrong. Period
