totally agree with #6 @Not Good Red Herring Either

Ansel's heart seems to be in the right place but if he keeps this up he'll be known as the left wing version of Donald Trump.

troll bait? learn some manners? the majority of commenters here sound like Trump supporters.

Great post Ansel. Wish more people in this country had the balls (ovaries!) to voice the little known truths as Sarra does. Instead they fall for the easy gloss of celebrity like all those people in the restaurant mugging it up with the man responsible for the "three strikes and you're out" and the "one strike and you're out" acts. Those denying the racial correlation obviously have not done their research.

Even without the racial angle the amount of tax money thrown at our prison system (as opposed to for example education) by these laws enacted under Clinton is an ugly blemish on american decency. Clinton did a lot of damage just so he could play play the "tough on crime" card.

Seeing the hypocrisy at play in that room it's surprising Sarra acted as graciously as she did. It's not for nothing the secret service whisked him out of that room quickly.

sounds like a great book, some great reviews over at goodreads.com

Seems like a matter of context, ignorance, and/or misunderstanding... asking for resignation because of a reading suggestion (viz. a great book about civil rights) doesn't add up.

@1 probably no one. But after that many shootings-by-toddlers obviously there's money to be made. It works here. American memes.

Stand tall, stand proud, the new cowboys are coming to a town near you.

I couldn't make it through this... @1 sums it up well.

Pay him to shovel shit, but please lay off the writing--if you can even call this boring litany of half-baked justification that.

wow, this passes for intellectual? Must be a self branded title that Kevin Williamson and ilk conjured out of the black hole of their withered soul.

I like the way you're thinking. We need more like this to balance out the prevalence of: me, more, money, now.
Don't know if that will ever happen but you got to do what you can. The children's children are no different than you today. Or even yesterday.
Time to ditch the hand me down thought patterns that only glimmer in the moment but destroy the future.

yep, plenty of our populace ready to enroll in the new SS. Fish in a barrel for the Trump regime.
Scary.
