We imprison more people per capita than South Africa (by 2x), Iran (by 3x), or China (by 6x). We have 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's prisoners. Land of the free, my ass.

I will be voting for Elizabeth Warren:

"You built a factory out there? Good for you," she says. "But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did."

She continues: "Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the next kid who comes along."

"Are you an artistically and technically skilled web designer and developer with experience in project management and an interest in designing and developing dynamic and engaging web sites? Consider a career in the CIA's Directorate of Intelligence."

Do you suppose this means cia.gov, or propaganda sites?
