Notwithstanding the fact that this is something expressly prohibited by law, is it a $30 mil waste of money? A felony conviction usually disqualify applicants for jobs with the employers - or at least from most positions of trust. That should change for some people, and particularly the civil litigation attorneys who hold employers liable for their employees. This pilot program makes little sense from a business risk perspective to hire. This make the program very questionable at the outset.

There may be occupations more conductive to post-prison occupation. This article doesn't discuss it.

I actually would support the program for those having paid the societal debt. They may need an additional way to make money upon reentry. There would need to be protections for taxpayers to ensure jail isn't just the price for a free education, either. Society just isn't ready for this at the moment imho.

Pell grants for prisoners: Obama to give inmates a second chance at college

The Second Chance Pell grant program will help give about 12,000 inmates access to a college education.

Perhaps more tellingly, the failed steak and vitamin mogul spent nearly a fifth of the money he raised on his own businesses and salaries for himself and his family. One of his biggest outlays was renting out the Mar-a-Lago club — which he owns. Odd.

Why? That is really an odd expendature. You'd think lining the pocket of some poor small businessman would make sense. Seems it's not about the average guy.

Time for Trump to Put Up or Shut... By Jonah Goldberg

Many observers think the real-estate mogul may not be as outlandishly wealthy as he claims.

I wonder what the Jews in 1938 through 1946 would have thought of this statement from Hoyer.

Mollie can have some really good lines in her writing. This may be one of her better ones:

Nobody cares if BuzzFeed says “No, really, this guy is beyond the pale,” because journalists said that about Mitt Romney. MITT ROMNEY. They have treated every Republican politician to the right of Olympia Snowe as dangerous and unhinged.


BuzzFeed is reneging on a contract because of pangs of conscience. Does this mean they'll see the light on others who decline service for moral reasons?

Using Trump's logic, only his supports will give him a fair trial... or those judges agreeing with him.

On Sunday, Trump doubled down on the idea. Asked on CBS whether a Muslim judge would be unfair given Trump's plan to ban Muslims from the U.S, Trump responded: "Yeah. That would be possible, absolutely."

Once again, Trump displays a lot of ignorance making him disqualified for the office.

Libertarians Could Appeal To Social Conservatives. They Just Don't Want To
http://thefederalist.com/2016/06/03/libertarians-could-appeal-to-social-conservatives-they-just-dont-want-to/

This pretty much describes why I won't vote Libertarian for president. I would have given Peterson a good honest look had he won. I should have known that he would not win, though. He's more principled than most Libertarians.
Libertarians have lost an opportunity to lure conservatives by picking socially liberal candidates who oppose religious liberty and free association.

Nothing like telling someone with a special relationship, like a wife or best friend, "I respect your decision, so now get in the back of the line because of your decision." Even Germany discussed moving forward in positive terms without punishment.

I am not sure what "special relationship" means for Obama. I would hate to be Michelle with a special relationship.

He added: "The United Kingdom and the European Union will remain indispensable partners of the United States even as they begin negotiating their ongoing relationship to ensure continued stability, security, and prosperity for Europe, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the world."

However, the White House on Friday night said that the president stood by his warning that Britain would move to the back of the queue when it comes to trade deals.

"Obviously, the president stands by what he said and I don't have an update of our position," White House spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters at a briefing.
The world woke up to the news that Britain had decided to leave the European union.

I've been seeing all this stuff lately from Trump supporters decrying Liberal antigun nuts for a few days. I shake my head on the people that love Trump and think that Trump is a constitutionalist. He is not. Far from it, in fact. Here is a comment that recently made that demonstrates the falacy of the Constitutionalist Trump:

the logic Trump uses in his immigration reform is the exact language antigun nut use to ban scary looking guns.

_Terrorists use their faith to motivate their actions, so we will ban all muslims. https://www.donaldjtrump.com/press-releases/donald-j.-trump-statement-on-preventing-muslim-immigration_

Terrorist use guns to execute their violence, so we will ban scary looking guns.

Same faulty logic... different presidential candidate. This is why constitutional minded people really don't support Trump.

Oh, and the logic and statement is straight from Trump's campaign website. Notice how he admits taking no time to review statistics before making a stupid unconstitutional statement like basing admissions on religion? What if it were a Christian ban because of hatred by radical Christians of gays?

i probably will not vote. And not because Clinton's policy positions are explicitly immoral (pro-abortion, tax-payer supported.)

Yes, this article pretty much sums it up for me. It is sad for me as a lifelong Republican. I am really giving my party a good hard look if it is worth staying, and if there is a viable conservative alternative. (It is too bad Austin Peterson lost the Libertarian Caucus, I would have probably voted Libertarian.)

My Declaration Of Independence From The Republican Party
http://thefederalist.com/2016/06/06/my-declaration-of-independence-from-the-republican-party/

There is a limit to the amount of jackassery that I can endorse. So I will gladly take Mike Huckabee’s advice to leave the GOP.

If this was an investigation of the abortion industry, do you think the producer would have been prosecuted for breaking the law?
Under fire for her anti-gun documentary, Katie Couric's director confirmed in a statement that her team skirted federal gun laws regarding interstate sales.

Obama Tries To Pretend The Second Amendment Doesn't Exist
http://thefederalist.com/2016/06/06/obama-wants-to-regulate-guns-like-automobiles/

For those with a minimal background in logic, the President demonstrate a lack of it (logic).

Obama doesn't want to talk about why strict gun laws don't reduce gun violence, but he has much to say about why we should regulate guns like automobiles.

Barrasso: Obamacare Deductibles So High, No One Gets to Use the Insurance
http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/barrasso-obamacare-deductibles-so-high-no-one-gets-use-insurance

This is the reason Obamacare will ultimately fail and the penalty will be cheaper than the risk for many low to middle income families forced on it. The alternative will to be not to work and take medicaid if there is a chronic illness in the family. Neither is a good solution for families and the taxpayer.

Story
Tagline
"No messin' with Sasquatch!"
Introduction
What's with that tagline? Glad you asked. 

Atticus Finch was my profile picture for years.  (I loved the scene with Atticus shooting the rabid dog - "best shot in the county.")  It was time for a little fresher profile picture.  I found an article where a hunter claims to have killed a bigfoot.  It included a photo. "Dead bigfoot.  photo.  How cool is that?"  I knew it had to be the new profile picture.  

Shortly after posting the new profile picture, one of my G+ political friends reminded me of the beef jerky ad. It just seemed apropos. It just had to remain my profile pic and tagline... at least until it gets old.
