What's that probability that Merrick Garland agrees to leave a lifetime appointment to work for a man who fires people at the slightest provocation?

American exceptionalism, y'all. Its not enough that we already incarcerate more people than any other country on earth (and that includes some pretty #!$#ed up countries). I personally won't be satisfied until - like defense spending - we're locking folks up at 2, 3, 4 times the rate of our nearest competitor. #MAGA
 
The first lesson I learned when I started tinkering with our dev process is that you have to have concrete measurables to judge whether changes are having a positive, negative, or insignificant impact. No one in the US government is hip to this technique?
 
Cuz, seriously, all the tough on crime bs y'all introduced in the 80s? It's bunk. It hasn't worked. All you do is take sort of shady people and put them in a place that makes them truly shady people, on my dime. And now we're gonna double down on this stupid shit? Wake the #!$# up.

"The Trump administration is returning to archaic and deeply-flawed policies," Inimai Chettiar, the center's justice program director, said Friday. "Sessions is leaving little to no room for prosecutors to use their judgment and determine what criminal charges best fit the crime."
 
"That approach is what led to this mess of mass incarceration," she added. "It exploded the prison population, didn't help public safety, and cost taxpayers billions in enforcement and incarceration costs."
 
I went looking for the evil empire. Turns out it's us.

Yep, and it's (the empire) growing in places like this:

Personally, I like the fact that the crime rate is lower than it has
been in forever. And that, unlike much of Europe, I can walk about anywhere
without fear of strongarm robbery.

Not lower than it has been in forever, con. Back to what it was prior to the 1960s. When we had sane incarceration rates.
 
There are lots of visualizations showing incarceration rates vs incidence of crime year by year - when you look at those, do you see a correlation? If not, what point are you trying to make here?

Yosemite, I'm not joking, just last week I caught one of those anonymous crimestopper ads on AM radio driving home only it was aimed at public school kids and called out that they were entitled to a reward if they turned in a classmate and it led to a conviction or issued ticket. Jhc.
 
Remember that book where the kid turned in his dad for supposedly muttering subversive anti-fascist-dude-in-charge stuff in his sleep? And the dad was proud of him for doing it? Yeah - we're getting there.

Socialism relies on having perfect practitioners because one wolf
rules one pack from the top. Capitalism relies on having many cunning
packs of wolves fighting over the spoils. The good thing about capitalism
is the freedom to choose what pack you join.

I don't know that it is wrong.
 
But there is something to be said for not breaking too quickly from
tradition observed by the previous administration albeit with liberal,
not Russian, terrorists.
 
At the same time we need to remember that Comrade Obama was more
responsible for electing Trump than Russia. we need to give credit
where credit is due.

Didn't take y'all long to line up your "why we're not responsible for the nut that we chose in our primary and voted for in the general" talking points.
 
No worries - expecting a Republican to own anything they do would be like expecting to see a black swan collide with a freaking unicorn on the ride in this morning.

Watching this group, especially the conservatives who claimed they wouldn't vote for Trump, since Trump has become president has been very enlightening.

It's a progression I predicted last summer.
 
1. It proves media bias that they are treating that clown Trump like he's a serious candidate for the GOP nomination
 
2. It proves media bias that the clown Trump is being portrayed as the face of the GOP just because he won a few fragmented primaries
 
3. It proves media bias that the MSM is acting like that clown Trump is likely to be our nominee.
 
and finally...
 
3. It proves media bias that Trump is being portrayed as a clown, just like we all did right up until the moment he became our guy.

Trump *is* a clown, and I have said so repeatedly. That doesn't excuse what
the left is doing.

The host continued by saying that making jokes about the president have, in fact, been good for ratings.
 
"It's almost like a majority of Americans didn't want you to be president," Colbert said. "You know who's got really bad ratings these days? You do. Just terrible approval numbers. I hear they're thinking about switching your time slot with Mike Pence."
 
According to Time, Trump brought up Colbert because of a lewd joke the late night host made about him last week, which sparked an online backlash.
"What he says is filthy. And you have kids watching," Trump said. "And it only builds up my base. It only helps me, people like him."
 
Colbert responded to this, as well.
"I will give this to the man. You're not wrong. I do occasionally use adult language and I do it in public instead of in the privacy of an Access Hollywood bus," he said.
 
B00M!

Not the least, I think she was the first female admitted to the golf
club at Augusta. That required more of a resume than a government job
or teaching at Stanford. Government jobs and teaching jobs can be held
by people as worthless as Comrades Obama and Football Phan.
 
She is the standard bearer for how to overcome prejudices and
obstacles.

60 years ago anyone called Ski was not highly regarded. People thought
they lost the recipe for ice.
 
But those on the USS Lexington CV-16 in 1945-46 had a lot of battle
stars on their Pacific Theater ribbons.

It's crazy thinking like that that led Kennedy to drag Murica into Vietnam
so that he could laugh as thousands and thousands of American children
died all while they lied. Liberals!
