We give our prisoners a little money too. It's like a mini economy but isn't self sustaining here.

Most states in the US actually doesn't pay the working inmates in prison. And a little over 25% of prisons in the US make big money off this, GTL alone net profit around 500 million dollars a year off prisons.

... And that money comes from charging the tax payers whether it's a state run prison or contracted out to a private prison.
Yes, it is huge money and it needs to stop. The war on drugs and civil forfeiture has become a monster out of control.

You don't seem to understand what revenue is. If you give the government 100 dollars and they turn it into 150 dollars then they have generated 50 dollars without taking it from you, they don't use time machines to go back in time and take an extra 50 dollars from you, theres no magic involved, it's just business just like a non-governmental company would do. They have created a net earning of 50 dollars and that's what non-tax revenue in government is, you giving them the 100 dollars to begin with doesn't take away the fact that they have generated 50 dollars with it.

I don't understand how you can't grasp this, it's baffling.
I'm sorry for coming off as rude, I know I am, but this is middle school stuff and you should be able to grasp it.

Again, no disrespect. The problem must be in my ability to articulate myself clearly. People seem to read more into my statements than what I meant to put into them. That's my glitch.

What we're having here is partially a communications error and yes some lack of understanding. I mean no disrespect you you but it's obvious from your posts that there are some things you're missing. I'm not up for exploring this any further with you because there are more entertaining things on the internet right now.
I can only back up and restate the basis of my original statement.
"The source of all government revenue is originally obtained via taxation on the private sector" That's a fact so simple that it requires no discussion. The games government plays with tax revenue after they get it is an entirely different and very broad subject.

That's fascism. We outlawed slavery a long time ago so that's not an option in America.
I do concede to your point though, it is possible.

Both private owned and government owned prisons in the US make profits off prisoners by providing jobs for them in prison.

let's not forget that the prisoners ALSo get wages for doing this. They can also opt to not work in this farm, and go to another prison.

That doesn't change the stigma behind the word. Honestly, what do you (and everyone else) think of when you hear cancer? People dying slowly and painfully.

#120 - saintall (05/05/2016) [-]
Your argument assumes the views of others. That is not my immediate thought when I hear the word 'cancer'. I think of people being subjected to Chemo even when they would prefer different methods like Medical Marijuana or THC-laden edibles. There was even one girl who did not want to go through Chemo at 17. She was forced to anyway, and if I remember correctly some kind of judicial action was taken against the mother.

I think of the patent that the government holds for Medical Marijuana as a potential cure for cancer, and still being one of the biggest countries that profits from the treatment of cancer yearly. Between charities, the hospitals that use chemo as a treatment, the cost of chemo in general, the industries that knowingly endanger people with cancer-causing products, it becomes clear that the real money (the only important thing to the ruthless business machine that is our American government) is not in the cure, but in the sickness.

You don't think about death and suffering when someone mentions cancer, and what's your point? Ask most people their thoughts, and they'll repeat what I've said.
User avatar
#161 - saintall (05/06/2016) [-]
Again, I think you're assuming. Unless you have cited sources or some form of evidence saying that most people think this, I think it is faulty to say that most people think that way just because you think that.

My point was that I don't think your point of 'everyone thinks this way because I think this way' is reasonable or even valid.

If you were ot ask my Mother, who lost her Mother to cancer, she'd have a very different response than say, someone who had never seen it take place, who had never lost someone to it, who had never experienced it in any way. I just think you shouldn't say things like that as if you know how everyone thinks or feels about a certain topic.

Honestly, the sentiment of "you need to back everything up with sources", when something is obviously meant to be opinion, is silly to me. I'm just putting my 2 cents into the topic. I'm not writing a research paper
User avatar
#179 - jalauren (05/06/2016) [-]
Did I ever say that everyone thinks this way? I didn't, I said most people. Of course, individuals are going to have different experiences with it, but I'm not talking about specifics. I never stated that what I said was fact, and you know, as well as I, that there aren't going to be studies on people's attitudes about cancer.

I'm allowed to generalize if I feel like it because it's only an opinion.
