You Can't Make This Up
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.
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.
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.
