Rumor has it that Trump will choose Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate. Someone pointed out that Trump/Pence will be hard to say. I responded "Trumpence a bag". Does anyone want to write this filk?

Interesting idea.
 
The proven method is: Spend some resources on violators - pay off court costs, place them in jobs, or in college. Track them, and if they go back on the street with gangs or violence, take all that resource away.

This works well. I've read about similar programs that address recidivism successfully. AND, these programs incur a ton of jealousy from people who aren't misbehaving in the first place. Which is why we can't sell this sort of thing politically.

Unless, of course, we had a universal basic income.

By the way, I seriously doubt that programs like this would do anything at all to stop spree killings such as Columbine, Sandy Hook, etc. They might, who really knows, but such incidents seem to have entirely different origins and motivations.
Despite proven success, Project Ceasefire, first trialled in 1996, has been continually cut back, even as gun homicides keep rising

Because leaving your kids in the car with a loaded weapon is an A number 1 idea.

H/T to +Adam Kenigsberg who directed me to an article with this as a link on the side.

Instead of having a blank screen appear when you open a new tab, you can have a donation to charity made every time you open a new tab.  Why not sign up today?  It supports charities like Water.org and SaveTheChildren.

Interesting things to think about:
-Government monitoring vs corporate monitoring
-Is opting out really a choice?  What are the costs of opting out?

If, like me, you live on the internet, you should use Tab for a Cause to make donations with every new tab opened.  You can choose which of the chairities they support to contribute to.  And right now, if you join via a link like this, 25 cents are donated to Ebola relief efforts in Africa.
