    Criminalizing something like drug use/possession/sale/whatever makes no sense. And if your only justification is that it creates prison jobs, that's a horrible excuse. We could criminalize drinking, cursing, gambling, and being mean to people for the same reason.

    General News - Bush withdraws 1 of 19 pardons he issued Tuesday




    What are you talking about?


    Where does it say he is a democrat?

    I'm not arguing that it's bad policy. I'm just arguing that trying to turn a few hundred thousand convicts loose within a span of a few months would be a disastrous policy that no serious candidate for President should even consider. Even if they were all non-violent and seriously trying to stay on the straight and narrow, it would be a national catastrophe.

    Re: Bush discovers that he is pardoning a Democrat.

    I was just thinking, what other man could go through what Bush has gone through as president and still have tens of millions of people think you're doing a good job?

    At this point that's tens of millions of people who support you, basically, no matter what.

    I don't see what would be so catastrophic about it. The automakers have laid off workers because business is bad. The banks have laid off workers because business is bad. Why should the prison industry be any different?

    Because in addition to all the prison workers, the economy would also be hit with all of the prisoners all at once.
