State Budget Deficits and Cutbacks lead to a Silver Lining: God Bless Gov. Kasich. In his attempt to make us solvent, he wants to let “low-hanging fruit” out on the street. If they go in for less than a year, we could save money by not putting them in prison Or releasing them early to save money.
When that happens, no one should be surprised when crime increases, since there aren’t enough jobs for law-abiding citizens, let alone criminals. In many areas this is haled as a smarter approach on criminal justice. They proclaim that prison reform is a rare public policy that cuts through the liberal-conservative divide They preach that when fewer “non-violent” offenders are sent to prison, conservatives cheer at taxpayer savings and liberals smile at a more compassionate justice system. One of very few things that conservatives and liberals seem to agree upon…let them go just so they can commit a crime, maybe even a serious one But we can save money.
The irony of this, is that these lunatics want to privatize prisons, make them for profit prisons. It is almost brilliant…..let them out, catch them again and put them into a for-profit prison. Low prison populations in private run prisons is a myth. There is no money in it. Private for-profit prisons are in the business of making money, not justice Think about… a first time sex offender out on the street again, commits a worse crime and the for-profit makes more money. But the safety of citizens is ignored. Thank you Lord Kasich.
ANOTHER ATTACH ON ABORTION:
[T]he so-called “Heartbeat Bill” legislation, which would ban abortion as early as 18 to 24 days after conception, isn’t supported by the Ohio Right to Life Society. That organization is backing a number of other anti-abortion bills, including a ban on late-term abortions after 20 weeks except when necessary to prevent the death of the mother or the irreversible impairment of a major body function.
It is a bill created by Janet Folger Porter, a native Ohioan and president of the conservative interest group Faith2Action. Republican State Rep. Lynn Wachtmann is prepared to unveil the so-call “Heartbeat Bill. The first proposal of its kind in the country, with other states, Texas, Georgia and Oklahoma watching intently.
“We can’t carry all the babies out of the burning building in one trip,l but with this bill will carry most of them out with it,” Porter said “With this legislation, we can save more than 20,000 lives a year. We’ve been taking baby steps for a long time. This is a leap.”
“After all, Ohio is the ‘Heart of it All’, so it’s only fitting that we protect our fellow human beings with beating hearts.” Said Wachtmann.
These right-wingnuts are always eager to save babies, stop abortion Look at all the legislation being considered. But nowhere in any of these bills is there any mention of what their plans are for these children after they have been “saved.” In this case these right-wingnuts want to outlaw abortion at a point when most women don’t even know they are pregnant .
The Bill is simple: It would prohibit women from ending pregnancies at the first detectable fetal heartbeat, sometimes as early as 18 days after conception.
Still, if you are for the bill is has its perks……Red heart balloons, heartbeat music video, and all manner of Propaganda. It is stunning. Check it out, get a laugh, get angry that their attempt to legislate morality of any kind. http://www.heartbeatbill.com
