Thanks. 

 

CMP should post this every time the "prison reform" public relations blitz tells us that Texas is leading the way on state prison reform.  Here's who's leading:  the Texas Public Policy Foundation, right wing to its core and its progeny, Right on Crime (sic).

 @KayWhitlock i just saw a right on crime tweet that said "criminal justice is the epitome of Big Government.."

 

so much for concern over "justice".. Nothing but the Norquist Bathtub at lkay right here..

 @nancy a heitzeg A test of how ahistorical and gullible the public is.  The Right drove mass incarceration and now seeks to expand profit base to community corrections.

 

"Big Government" means, in rightspeak, tax dollars fund public infrastructure, requiring public accountability.

 

Right on Crime/Norquist Bathtub's version means tax dollars handed over to private, unaccountable interests.

 

And we are both robbed and screwed at the same time.

Hell of a deal.
