Anyone that advocates war for any reason does not deserve to keep the Peace Prize…just saying…

Thomas Pa.: somebody remind him, the Russian’s don’t decide who gets the Nobel Peace Prize, they didn’t win that war.

Jonas A.: Does not matter….Bush did that with Iraq….now, current prezzie is doing the same thing to Syria….we have no business being there….

Thomas Pa.: I don’t think it’s going to be that big a deal, unless of of course you are a Syrian living really close to a chemical weapon facility, that might be a problem. We will have to wait and see if Pres is true to his word. Hoping he does much better than Bush but really only time will tell.

Jonas A.: I hope so…Syria is no threat to us…and butting heads with Russia over that country will make it WW3…just saying…

Thomas Pa.: for now, I believe the “no boots on the ground” model. Usually when it goes the other way they leave themselves a little more “latitude” in their statements.

Rayn: But, Jonas, you’re forgetting that war IS peace, now! You better bellyfeel AmeriCorporation, or else you will be punished for thoughtcrime!

“Land of the Free,” You Say?

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “End the War on Drugs,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"This year's winner in prison population (prisoners in millions): USA - 2.0, China - 1.5, Russia - 0.8. The United States has less than 5% of the world's population, but nearly 25% of the world's prisoners. Let's meet the champions: (Three Strikes, and other mandatory sentencing laws, not higher crime rates, are responsible for the 800% increase in federal prison populations since 1970.) (Louisiana, has the highest incarceration rate with 1619 per 100k residents, more than 2x the national average. Nearly 2/3 of their prisoners are non-violent offenders. This is largely due to the laws voted into effect by voters.) (Private prisons, are the for-profit prisons that hold over 10% of all federal prisoners. The problem: they spend millions each year lobbying for stricter sentencing laws to increase their profits.) Share better. Share this. Upworthy."
