Slavery! Never been better.

Slavery, new and improved, not just for Blacks anymore. White trash, Hespanics and as always, native Americans welcome too. Corporate America needs you, the Republicans who privatized the prisons thank you, and now the Democrats will only be too happy to pimp out your hard labor to the highest bidder.
The NFL will keep most people happy for today, tomorrow another distraction, and back to the coal mines for those of us lucky enough to still have paying jobs.
I wonder if I could build a small raft and float down to Cuba, I hear life is pretty good there....at least a man can still be free.

Re-education camps for those who do not conform to the current beliefs will provide cheap labor for the state.

This is insanity. No wonder there are no jobs in this country for honest people. Great idea for corporations though... surprise, surprise.

The slow grind to the military state and the slow slide towards the same, things the us fought against in WW2, labour camps full of jews producing products for large companies who made things from clothes to tank parts and all in between, they say we have the higher ground, while the Chinese build brand new cities each year the us's cities and infrastrucure crumbles, where companies can shrug off responsibility for those who make their goods, and in turn kill hundreds for the bottom line (wallmart).

the difference between this and china is that the people in china didnt break the law and dont deserve a punishment. these people do. prison shouldnt be fun. it costs states thousands and thousands of dollars to have these inmates, so they should be put to work to save the taxpayers money. if you dont want to go to jail, dont break the law.

I'd rather stuff get made over here and have us ship it out having countries pay us to import our products than ship all of our manufacturing overseas and pay other countries to make our goods and ship them back to us because we as Americans are lazy, fat, and feel entitled to have everything done for us then complain that we don't have any jobs.

The problem is with all the money involved , corruption and kickbacks to judges , district attorneys and other "criminal justice' officials are bound to play a huge roll in whether or not a person is indicted, convicted and sent to prison. There are billions to go around, and I don't know how many of you are aware of this but the majority of persons involved in criminal justice belong in prison themselves and are much worst on average than the people the prosecute morally. We now have more people in prison per capita than any other country in the world, and it's not because we have the most criminals on the streets, it's because we have the most criminals in official positions in the criminal justice system who are taking money.

The fact is that these prisoners are taking millions of jobs away from the so called tax payers. Give this work to the people so they can pay taxes and have a job, not to the people who were most likely wrongly convicted due to some idiotic drug law.

Jose = can you at least explain why that person's comment was ignorant, or are you yourself so ignorant that you are incapable of articulating anything except the position of the criminals?

on the one hand- prison labor is better than prisoner watching TV etc at tacpayer expense. On the other hand- all these prisoners are getting access to private information which they and their friend WILL use on unsuspectiong consumers.
