    Those were just facts. Get upset at reality all you want, you won't change it.

    I say the same thing about politicians. Just a criminal that hasn't been caught yet.

    Yes. He probably could. He may be a crook but he's probably pretty smart and could pay back a little. Remember, he's not a violent criminal. He marketed greed and found plenty of takers. So, yes, he belongs in poriuson but he might as well do something productive while we feed, clothe and medical him.

    I believe there is a minimum wage for prisoners. I can't recall what it is but it was less than $1 an hour. I'm a victim of the USA Capital fraud and my guy is serving 11 years. I hope to recover a few dollars at the end of his sentence. Pathetically little but better than zero.

    How many times a year do you give out your SS number at medical and government and credit card operations? Do you think everyone at these places is 100% honest? Do you not read about how hackers have compromised many accounts? Let me put it this way. I'll give you my SS number for a week and you give me your credit card details. Who will profit more?

    Please don't misunderstand. Nobody wants to give info to a bad guy but these guys are tightly supervised and your doctors secretary (or Kevin Mitnick) are less so.

    Yes, but eventually people do their time and are released and we shouldn't hold past crimes against them. If a felon gets a job, that's not a problem. That general statement has nothing innately wrong with it. Now if these folk have additional information as to why that should be alarming or why there is danger, by all means elaborate. But I haven't seen it.

    All felons used to be non-felons. Being a criminal who has never been caught doesn't show up on a background check, which was part of my point.

    Fair enough - perhaps the more important question is how many felons become repeat felons?

    I think this is the first election promise Barrack Obama has kept when he said he would deliver "Jobs, Jobs, Jobs".

    Maybe not too many of them are having families to support.
