You Can't Make This Up

In many ways the Left has reached the point where it is impossible to parody them. They seem to go from one impossible absurdity to the next. When reality gets in the way ignore it.

Dr. Sanity has a very troubling post of something going on in Sweden, one of the most "progressive" nations on earth.

I am half Swedish and right now I am not too proud of that heritage.

What next?

another beauty
Michigan is in a severe budget shortfall right now. It is not as bad as California but bad enough. Michigan is shutting down prisons because we can't afford them or don't need them (depends on who you ask), but our ingenious governor has a brainstorm. California has more criminals than it can handle. So let's raise revenues by leasing (perhaps not the best word but it gets the idea across) space in our prisons to California.

Has that lady seen California's economic condition? I can't see California paying Michigan to house criminals that they can't afford to house themselves.


Additional Update
I just received the newsletter from my Congressman, Dave Camp, and he basically said he opposed the Cap and Trade, spoke out against it, and quite bluntly referred to it as another broken promise that will further devastate our already floundering economy. He offered no suggestions on how to resist or survive this nonsense but he knows it won't work.

I am skeptical about the whole climate change thing. OTOH, if it makes us buy less Arab oil it will be better in the long run.

On the prison thing I say send them up. Bring the Gitmo guys, too if the Feds will give us a billion a year to put them in the U.P. Face it: If they get out up there they will not blend in and get themselves shot by the locals if they come anywhere near civilization.

I too would welcome the prisoners for revenues but California does not have the money to pay for it.

Good point on the prisons. Not a bad idea to use them to make money but we should look for customers that can pay.

I love the cartoon w/ the pink van--and reference to SS-(Social Security) ...
OK - after having written my MI family saying -"How is Socialism working for you!?--You can go to Detroit and buy an house for a $1!"..
I'm waiting for their retort on CA!!! :-)
Progressive Socialism works NO where it has EVER been tried...

BTW-my advice--don't trust Arnold or any of our CA 'servants' in government to keep their word esp. concerning $$$$

It's a nice try on Michigan's part, but Fornicalia won't pay to fly or drive thousands of inmates to our northern border.

I read today that the state of California has now issued IOU's for some of the state's debts. Well, California has lived beyond its means for a lot of years now, and it's time to pay the piper.

Good luck leasing prisons to California. All you'll get is an IOU.
