Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Because they couldn't find any where else to cut?

Lane County Jail in Oregon has released 100 prisoners, so far, due to budget cuts.  Yeah, I know jails are expensive to operate (although they don't have to be as expensive as they are), but to release prisoners like this one

Among those released with only an electronic ankle bracelet was 33-year old Aaron Curry, who police say admitted he killed a man who had taken him in. He’s awaiting trial on a charge of second-degree manslaughter in the beating death of 46-year old Alan Platt. The victim’s relatives were stunned by Curry’s release. “We want justice,” says Platt’s sister, Alison Cavarra. “We want Aaron locked back up until trial like anybody else who has committed one of these crimes, or is accused of this crime.”

is really a sad statement about the priorities of current government.  Though I believe Oregon at least has reasonable gun laws (if there is such a thing)so the citizens put at risk by this decision can have means to protect themselves.
