13.gif For some reason i find this disturbing.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) thinks female prisoners sewing American flags should be the new iconic image for America's Independence Day.

On July 4th, the CDCR posted a photograph of a female prisoner sewing an American Flag on its Facebook page with the following greeting:

"Happy Independence Day from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation!"

What's so wrong with having them do something constructive? I'm sure it is a voluntary and therapeutic program. Anyway, what else do they have to do with their time? Oh ya, don't answeer that. coffeetime.gif

The whole "independence day" idea is sham as I posted a link to on the 4 July thread. Bricks and mortar prisons seems to be one of the growing business ventures in the states. When drones are fully operational in US Airspace & the borders are finally secured, Americans will finally be safe to sew flags at home.

Nothing is wrong with having them doing something constructive, I don't recall saying so. What I don't like is the CDCR advertising prison labor as representative of the US flag. Slavery is freedom. How are you sure it's voluntary?

Good find Octo

The United States has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's incarcerated population.[8]

In 1979, Congress created the Prison Industry Enhancement Certification Program (known as PIE; pdf) to establish employment opportunities for inmates "that approximate private sector work opportunities". On the surface, the program is a great idea. It gives prisoners something to do, allows them to contribute to their own upkeep and, hopefully, gives them a better shot of getting an actual living wage job upon release. Such was the intention, anyway.

Unfortunately, and perhaps unsurprisingly, this is not how the PIE program has worked out. Instead, it has become little more than a tidy profit-making scheme for corporations and other entities willing to exploit the captive labor force – often at the expense of private sector jobs.

Draping this in the American flag is in your face Orwell.

" See something,,,, Say something "

it is a Cartoon of a woman making a call on a cell phone to Authorities

In Orwellian reflection

911 was the trauma

that trauma
caused fear

that fear in some psyche'
caused SNITCHES FOR THE CONTROLLING

1984 was a dramatic representation of how
common people could be brainwashed
into sheep
sheep that will give up freedom of choice

sheep, that scared,,,,

will work for the enemy they should have feared

sheep, who if they see "YOU",, a strong willed free of fear
individual
will fear you and call to report you

welcome to the New World of Scared Snitches

Fear is what controls you on an individual level. Don't think for a minute the POO knows that and uses it for everything it's worth.

They will create a Monster so horrific that
the shock value will sway perceptions to their design


The Monster of 911, served it's masters well.

these fearful perceptions have a personal effect on me

for, through that conditioning of their minds

i have become " what they see, that causes them to say something "
I despise them deeply.
despicable is the behavior of Cowards

Yeah well I see things but I have to admit I'm not probably seeing it all. Live & learn, I'm still young.

And I have turkey fillets on the grill I forgot! panic.gif
