Trump Embraces a Path to Revise U.S. Sentencing and Prison Laws

From article:

Mr. Trump’s support could give political cover to Republicans wary of reducing some hard-line sentencing rules for drug and other offenses, and enable the legislation’s sponsors to assemble a coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats in time to move a bill before the year’s end — and before the new, divided Congress is seated.

The changes have attracted a broad and unusual range of supporters, including the billionaire brothers Charles G. and David H. Koch on the right and the American Civil Liberties Union on the left. Conservatives see an opportunity to begin to cut into the high costs of the nation’s growing prison population. Liberals have long opposed the current sentencing laws for what they see as having unfairly incarcerated a generation of young men, particularly African-American men, for drug and other nonviolent offenses.

Offensive word of the day “Man” https://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?23627-Offensive-word-of-the-day-“Man”&goto=newpost Fri, 16 Nov 2018 13:13:15 GMT
Seriously,the bright minds at Perdue university have decided the word,Man,is now offensive.

While the guide acknowledges that "man" originally conveyed a dual meaning, referring to either adult males or humans in general, it says the terminology is now considered offensive.

In an interview a student was asked,what about businesses with the word man in them,like Goldman Sachs.

Her reply was,people should stop shopping there until they change the name.

Think of how many words use the word,man,in there,like woman.

So you cannot refer to them as a woman,or a female,the opposite sex is definitely a no no,how about if we all just become like cousin It from the Adams family?

Quote:

It's a pretty safe bet that no one on the Constitution Center's panel that selected the Bushes for the now-tarnished Liberty Medal consulted with the Iraq-born novelist Sinan Antoon, who wrote in the New York Times in March that "
Fifteen Years Ago, America Destroyed My Country
" and noted that estimates of as many as one million dead mean the war "is often spoken of in the United States as a 'blunder,' or even a 'colossal mistake,' " but, he writes, "It was a crime."

Figured we needed a place to discuss the returns and the results of the 2018 Midterm elections.

My predictions for Michigan:
Whitmer defeats Schuette
Stabenow crushes John James
Proposals 1, 2, and 3 all pass by comfortable margins
Democrats flip 2 Republican House seats in Michigan
