Sessions' Blatant Prison Profiteering

Yoda Sessions has stepped from the shadows to make the most blatant move yet for this Cabinet of Trumpigari. He has directed all federal prosecutors to ask for the maximum sentence in each case that comes before them. Our Attorney General is very anti-crime (except for white collar and ethics violations). The stories detailing this obvious plan to increase profits for companies running our private prisons are linked below. The swamp is alive and getting more obvious.

French Wisdom

Wow... on April 23rd 2017, France held an election for President. No candidate had a majority, so a runoff was held May 7th. France elected the centrist candidate, Emmanuel Macron, an outsider who favors NATO and the European Union, over the right-wing Fascist, Marine Le Pen. I am very pleased with the outcome, but I would like to suggest that the way France holds their elections is far superior to our own. (Most Democracies' elections are superior to our own.) 

France historically gets a very bad rap from Americans. Sometimes subtle and sometimes obvious jabs are often thrown their way. Here, though, is something to emulate. Our elections are ridiculous and a monumental waste of money, attention, and our nerves. 

So, France, I salute thee on the day after a comfortable win for reason...:
