Prisons are for prisoners

To pay for prisons, Oregon might release some prisoners
Faced with a $78 million hole in the state public safety budget, lawmakers are proposing to save money by delaying a voter-approved measure requiring longer sentences for property thieves. Also, they want to release prisoners early for good behavior and ease penalties for people caught with small amounts of drugs.

Lawmakers have spent months negotiating how Oregon might hold down prison costs while honoring the intent of voters who last year endorsed Measure 57, which slapped tougher sentences on property and drug crimes.

I'm positive that in the months of negotiations they discussed firing the Department of Corrections Cultural Awareness and Diversity administrator Carolyn Schnoor until they realized that the threat to public safety was just too great.

I can't explain what the specific threat might be because she is the only administrator on the org chart that doesn't have defined duties.

I'm also positive that since our lawmakers were sooo thorough that they did consider turning off the cable tv or taking away the prison recreational activities like:

Stationary bicycles
Numerous board games and other indoor activities (cards, chess, etc.)
Current-run movies are shown nightly

And I'm so glad that our crack reporters at the Fishwrapper can't bother to question these things but just blindly accept the fact that our legislators want to ignore the will of the voters and spit in the face of public safety.

Danny -

You didn't serve any time for your crimes.

Why the beef with those currently incarcerated/convicted?

You committed crimes against your fellow citizens, were allowed to go free without doing any time, and were even allowed the benefit of two tax-payer funded appeals.

By your own logic, allowing you to go free threatens the rest of us, right?

Prisons are for prisoners, right?

Go there.

Do your time.

The "Fishwrapper"? Very clever, Miglavs! You're using the same, worn-out insult that Lars Larson uses to refer to The Oregonian. Both unoriginal, and even hinting at ... should we call it a man crush? What's the story there, Miglavs?

What is the "will of the voters", certainly you aren't talking about the voters that threw Repubicans out of office? Remember, the will of GOP voters is worth nothing because you & they have no power. Have fun writing on your little blog anyways.

As for the "fishwrapper" comment, Lars "slimeball" Larson has nothing really intelligent to say which is why as a dropout he is relegated to shilling for the lunatic fringe of the GOP. The funny part about it is Larson makes no difference because no one wants to identify with his wing of the party made up of white racist xenophobes over 50 that are hopelessly hanging on to the dead corpse of Ronald "Amiable Dunce" Reagan. They just haven't come to grasp with the fact that the Reagan Revolution is dead and buried.

I like how you think only white people can be racist. You parade your ignorance around like a banner. I spent four years in the US Army. I am a single white male. I was single then too. My squad leader was black, my platoon sergeant was black. On many days I was on the receiving end of racism. However, I showed everyone that I was the best technician (I was an electronic technician on the Vulcan) in my squad. After a year at my unit in the 82nd Abn,I was the best technician in my squad. I was the best worker.

You are a complete fool if you think only white people are racist. If I remember correctly, about 90% of black people voted for the messiah. That is racist. Mexico has separate sections in their constitution for mexicans and foreignors. That is racist. Saudi Arabia won't allow bibles or churches in their country. That is racist. You are a fool who should not open your mouth.

The reason we conservatives don't want to associate with the Republican party is because we don't like our leaders who are acting like socialist democrats. We don't like their uncontrolled spending. Can you say the governator. Don't forget he is a Republican. Not a conservative. He has said recently that the criminal aliens are not the problem in California. Any fool can figure that out when criminal aliens cost over 9 billion dollars a year. Here is a report in 2004. That is five years ago for an idiot like you.

What would the cost be today? Say it's nine billion a year. Five times nine is 45 billion dollars since then. Hey stupid, that is twice their budget problems. Fucking expensive lettuce if you ask me. I'll grow my own lettuce for that much. Criminal aliens are most of the problems with our economy. They have helped to crash our housing market. Remember the no SSN's or proof of income. They are stealing from our education dollars which means are schools are overloaded and dumbed down. They are filling our prisons and now Arnold is going to let them loose to terrorize the citizens of CA again. They are stealing our health dollars from our children. I bet you like the criminal aliens. They are raping and murdering our children every day you idiot. I guess you don't give a fuck about children as long as you feel good.

Your little statements shows your education was stolen by an illegal alien. We should revoke your right to vote since you are such an idiot. Keep voting for Obama and socialists like him and your grand children (if anybody was stupid enough to breed with you) will be working the chinese coal mines to pay off the debt to them. Crawl back in your hole.

Why do Miglavians insist on responding to arguments and statements that the individual they're addressing did not even make? I think this is fascinating.

Dave: Anon 10:59 did not say or imply that "only white people can be racist." Show me where he did, if you think he did. What he actually said, and what you did not respond to, was the charge that Miglavs has basically become politically irrelevant because he occupies "the wing of the party made up of white racist xenophobes over 50 that are hopelessly hanging on to the dead corpse of Ronald "Amiable Dunce" Reagan."

And so, apparently, do you.

With their continuing anti-Daniel, anti-Conservative, anti- GOP, anti-Lars, pro-convicts, pro-racists postings above, the Anonymouses are once again proving to all who look in on this blogspot that their only reason for their pathetic existence is to bash anything and everything that they do not agree with. And Dave hit it just right about white people have been and still are targets of blatant racism. Whe have no real knowledge that the above Anonymouses are white, black, red, green, or purple. But we do know for absolute certain that they are nothing more than biased idiots on the same par as Obama's preacher, Jeremiah Wright.

Looks like the members of "the wing of the party made up of white racist xenophobes over 50 that are hopelessly hanging on to the dead corpse of Ronald "Amiable Dunce" Reagan" are coming out of the woodwork. I guess if the shoe fits.

Now all we need is Liars Larson to comment and the circle of ninnies will be complete.

Attention Miglavians: No one -- NO ONE! -- here has made ANY claims that white people are the only ones who are racist, or that whites can't be victims of racism, and NO ONE has expressed support for Jeremiah Wright, period. You're setting up straw men and knocking them down. Is that the best you can do?

Rick said...

You said it, Scottie! Only Daniel Miglavs, superior being that he is, is entitled to justify his pathetic existence by bashing anything and everything that he does not agree with.

The idiot stated:
wing of the party made up of white racist xenophobes over 50

He wrote the word "white". I did not. I guess Michael Steel dies himself black everyday. I guess Sarah Palin is part of the white over fifty xenophobe wing of the party too. You or the idiot put in the word white. I would bet there is a part of the wing of the party that is black, hispanic or asian that believes the same as the white racist xenophobes over 50 as he stated. You bigots cannot lump everyone in the same class. So, you try to tear down and demean people. Just like that piece of shit Letterman did to Palin's daughter. If Letterman is the represents your party, I don't anything to do with it. I don't give a shit what you call me. I'm not sensitive like people are these days. I am 45. So you and the other idiot don't have a clue. You make statements like his or defend his and I think you don't have an IQ over 50. I would be willing to bet you are a liberal. Your statements make you a bigot. Here is the definition of a bigot for idiots like you:
a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices ; especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

That is the exact definition of what you and the other idiot are babbling about. I hope you don't breed either, we don't need to lower the IQ of the human race. It's too low already.

Sorry you don't like Reagan. I have a few problems with some of the laws he signed. A big one is the first amnesty with ted the swimmer in the eighties. That piece of garbage Ted has done a lot of damage to this country. I hope he goes to Canada to be a recipient of the Health Care that he wants to jam down our throats. I wonder how long he would have to wait for life saving treatment in Canada? Not long enough.

The problem with the Republican party is that is has been taken over by compassionate conservatives that look like democrats. They were fools drunk with power and forgot what got them into power. Look at Gordon Smith. I did not vote for him and gloated the day I found out he was being booted out. I called his office several times to let them know I was a republican and did not vote for that piece of garbage.

After the messiah and his group of democrat idiots in congress get done with this country, you will be wishing for bush to return.

My two cents after work.

What Letterman said was brilliantly funny. You clowns can never take a joke.

So DAVE01, do you identify with the "wing of the party made up of white racist xenophobes over 50 that are hopelessly hanging on to the dead corpse of Ronald "Amiable Dunce" Reagan."

Have you ever heard the phrase, "Me Thinks Thou Dost Protest too much". You seem to be really doing alot of it.

Anon 1:06 and Rick 3:48: You two dumbos are incapable of reading what is in front of you without injecting your own version into it. In my post I said nothing about Jeremiah Wright except to compare the Anonymouses and your collective blather to him. Period. And I directed my comments at those Anonymouses prior to my first post. Nothing was said about Daniel except that you clowns are anti-Daniel, etc., etc.

Now do you understand??

I didn't think so.

Why would you guys want to know the facts when you can fabricate your own to suit your own biased purposes? Facts do not cease to exist just because you guys choose to ignore them.

Anon 5:53: Only you could find that the rape of a 14-year-old girl, regardless of whose daughter she is, to be brilliantly funny. You would probably think it was hilarious, too, if Looney Letterman had said that about your daughter. That is assuming, of course, that you are capable of siring children in the first place. Or that you even know how.

And now, presenting another piece of cogent Miglavian political commentary -- brilliant in its analysis, and almost poetic in the delivery:

Just like that piece of shit Letterman did to Palin's daughter. If Letterman is the represents your party, I don't anything to do with it.

Thanks Dave, but I gotta ask: WTF?

P.S. Thanks for the lecture on low IQs, breeding, etc. I guess you would know.

DAVE01 said...

That was written quickly at the end of the day and I realized I had made a mistake but there is no way to edit the post. I could have written another one. I'm assuming you got my meaning. Here it is for you.
Remember I mispoke (isn't that what the politicians say) in that sentence.

If Letterman represents your party, I don't want anything to do with it.

Does that make you feel better? Now, go make those jokes about your children, grand children or other children in your family. They deserve it, Palin's family does not.

Scottiebill said...

Since Letterman's incredibly stupid, disgusting "joke" about Sarah Palin's daughter being "knocked up" has gotten into this posting, I will add something to the mix.
Remember a couple of years ago when Don Imus made his stupid remark about the "nappy-headed hos" on that womens basketball team? The public rantings in all the newspapers and TV and blogs and whatever forced the networks to take him off the air, even after he issued profuse public apologies. But, nothing has been said about the thing Letterman said in the papers, radio, or TV, nor, to my knowledge, has he issued an apology to the Palin family, as he well should, but likely will not.

If Imus can be taken off the air for comments that were nowhere near as offensive as Letterman making tasteless (for lack of a better word) jokes about the rape of a 14-year-old girl, then he, Letterman should also get his show canceled.

But, because he is a Komrade Obama-worshipper and therefore immune to such sanctions, he will be allowed to continue his blathering diatribes against all things GOP, conservative, and people that he deems fair game for his venom-laden "wit".

I didn't watch his show before Leno went off the air a couple of weeks ago, mainly because Leno was funnier, and Letterman couldn't carry water to Leno. I will not watch Conan O'Brian because he just plain is not even remotely amusing. But Letterman is about as funny as a heart attack.
