Prison Reform, Finally President Trump is doing a great job of getting prison reform through. And, boy am I glad. Many people who agree with me on many issues don't on prison reform. But there is no excuse for current prison statistics. I'm not giving any in this post but they are readily available all over the Internet (and some in the video below). First, some backstory. Marc, the Canadian who sometimes posts here on OL, is a close friend of mine. He's Jewish and supports Faith Goldy. Like me, he named two of his kids after Ayn Rand characters. Also, like me, he loves black people and the black culture. He loves rap more than I do, though. Anyway, he sent me the link to the following video about prison reform (and involving a rapper, of course ). Somehow that email disappeared. But the video didn't and neither did my response. The video is by a Canadian progressive named David Doel. He presents parts of an interview between rapper Meek Mill and CNN host Michael Smerconish on prison reform. All throughout the video, Doel makes his analysis. The title Doel gave his video is: "Meek Mill Schools CNN Host With Black American Reality." In terms of agreeing with the gist of this, it almost looks like a slam dunk, right? I mean, who could disagree But I know this situation in more ways than just the press, including personal involvement in some of the issues, so I wrote back the following. Enjoy: Just to be clear, the crony corporatist private prison scam is not the only cash cow these establishment elitist assholes milk in black ghettos. It's merely the one among many I talked about. And it's true. I really do get riled up about this. Michael
