California prison inmates enjoy rights then mere citizens.

A compassionate conservative solution would be to open up all those foreclosed homes in our neighborhoods as half-way houses for released prisoners. Not enough funding? Easy! Just pink slip a few thousand more unionista teachers, double class size, taught by administrators and parent volunteers.

Watch the NIMBY crowd begin to whine. Washington DC doesn't give a rat's azz what we think or want for ourselves and our families.
