prison labor is a real neat idea right until you think about it… then it falls apart if you leveraged more brain cells than a dozen eggs has.
unfortunately a lot of votin’ folk don’t think about other people’s motives, nor does it run across their purt lil minds that someone might rent prisoners out for labor.
while renting people usually don’t sit well with most folk, them as have a shoe-size iq might think it’s only right the ”prisoners” pay their own way.
this sounds all nice a purdy on the wireless when some slick politician says it, but it you think about it at all, puttin’ people in a place they don’t wanna be and keepin’ ’em in a place they don’t wanna stay and makin’ them work a job they don’t wanna work has another name fer it that y’all should be mighty familiar with.
then these involuntary people-renters take it up a few notches: they’ll make the pris’ners do dangerous things like fight forest fires without proper training or protection, they’ll charge the pris’ners for food and lodging and teethpaste and $5-10 to make a phone calls and another quarter a minute.
and now they’re making prisons into companies and charging the government to house prisoners and makin’ contracts guaranteein’ how many pris’ners will be in the lockup, and they are making the prison screws worse because now they’re company prison screws and the company is expectin’ to make a profit, where a government don’t.
so every dime an’ dollar the prison company saves is another dime an’ dollar that some rich guys who own it but don’t bother visitin’ get to put in their pockets. an’ us taxpayers don’t get no discount: we get lawyered and sued because the prison company is so bad, and our taxes pay their lawyers and the lawsuits.
an’ you all voted for that, even if you didn’t vote.
it needs fixin’.
lot’s ‘o things need to fixin’ now’a’days, ‘specially because we sold something the government aught to do and we sold it to a private company.
prisons. highways. government buildings then we lease ’em back and it’s just some rich folks takin’ our taxes again.
hell, those rich bastards are coming after our schools now, even though they sent their kids away to private school.
and y’all are gonna vote fer it again because someone on tv said laser jews in space were woke-ing our kids into wearing dresses and being cats while democrat pizza makes basement dungeon pedophiles.
load ‘a bull-stinky that is.
