    Hospital food has to be the same as prison food. Isn't it all SYSCO?

    I have my own opinions about Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the whole (lack of) justice system in general.

    Back in the early 80s, I was a deputy-sheriff in Texas. Got out of it because I could not bring myself to arrest people for consensual acts (drugs, etc).

    That being said, back then the kitchen in the county jail was run by trustees and we had some pretty damn good food. That was way pre-primal for me and I enjoyed about everything they cooked.

    As I understand it now, almost all the county jail food preparation is outsourced and premade meals are brought in. Likely done by the same company that premakes the food that is sold in schools.

    That should tell you a bit about the quality.

    If it turns a few violent offenders into docile livestock, I'm okay with it. Anyone serving less than a year should be okay.

    Tells me a bit about how well we treat school children as well and the type of people an "institution" like school is really developing.

    The USA (supposedly a free country) has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's total prison population (I don't think that includes city and county jails). Over 50% of our prison population is in prison for non-violent crimes and that are, more often than not, consensual crimes, usually drug related.

    The War on Drugs, like every other "War on" that the US has waged has become an utter failure but because there is so much money in it, it will continue on a large scale.

    If you are against the legalization of drugs, you are in the company of the drug dealers. Legalizing drugs would take the profits away from them.

    You are also in the company of police/sheriff's departments, the (lack of ) justice system in general, the private corporations that have a vested interest in keeping drugs illegal and various other nefarious groups.

    I don't do drugs, legal or otherwise, but it is not the government's place to tell me what I can, and cannot, put into my body.

    You're preaching to the choir. And I feel the same way about any sex (paid or not) between consenting adults, and of course gambling. I've yet to see the politician/lawmaker who I thought was intelligent or moral enough to make rules/laws to which I should adhere on these issues.
