Prison guards make, on average, more than twice as much as high school teachers. Shit - what does that say about our 'enlightened' democracy?

I hear there's a prison-guard opening at Julia Tutwiler State Prison for Women outside Wetumpka, AL. Shall I sign you up?

Gee - I don't think I'd know what to do with all of the extra pay.

You can buy beer with it at Nanny's and tell hardship stories about the public school!

You could buy books for the masses to learn from at their leisure, in pursuance of the utopian form of education.

Plus - if we have abandoned the idea of prisoner reform anyway, Mr. MoonPie, let's just be done with it and shoot them!

I second the movement to shoot all prisoners as a means to fix our overcrowded jails. It warms my heart to see beaurocrats and wealthy elite decide what is best for the people of this country and I'm sure Paddy and Wop are all for it too.

En garde Paddy, Wop: "In poetry's gallery of diverse ways of thinking, diverse aspirations, and diverse desires, we come to know periods and nations far more intimately than we can through the misleading and pathetic method of studying their political and military history. From this latter kind of history, we rarely learn more about a people than how it was ruled and how it was wiped out. From its poetry, we learn about its way of thinking, its desires and wants, the ways it rejoiced, and the ways it was guided either by its principles or its inclinations." Johann Gottfried von Herder. Against Pure Reason.
