Correctional Corporation of America offers to buyout state prisons: What this implies

Here is a compelling article from HuffPo

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/14/private-prisons-buying-sta...

Which spells out the bottom line of the Prison Industrial Complex's true motivation--surprise surprise--not restoration but profits, not rehabilitation but literally spelled out in the letter this article refers to--a stipulation that prisons stay at least 90% full over their 20 year contract deal. CCA (CXW on the NYSE) is the US's largest privatized corrections corporation.

Proof of the link between corporate interests and investment in lobbying for stricter laws is coming to light continuously; ALEC (alec.org) fronts as an NPO/NGO but on the backend is involved in private prison corp's interests at length. It's big business.

Keywords: Prison Industrial Complex (PIC), CCA (Correctional Corporation of America), ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council - alec.org)

Why have all of Antimasonic's Blog entries been deleted? Why have Antimasonic's blog entries been deleted after Antimasonic posted their literary masterpiece essay about Fascist corporations entitled "DEAD BABIES ON MY FACE!". Antimasonic posted this awesome essay 4/10/12 on multiple Occupy blogs. None of Antimasonic's blog entries were deleted from these blogs, so why is Occupy SLC censoring Antimasonic, Occupy Eugene, Occupy Portland, Occupy Oregon and Occupy America? Antimasonic is asking prominent Occupy bloggers to occupy the Occupy SLC blog. You could be next! Peace!

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More

Leadership Ecology

When a Leadership Ecology occurs, a web of relationships emerges revealing each person’s authentic leadership qualities through the transfer of their power to others. When done in a conscious way – a shared collaborative awakening happens.See More
