I know that, the prisoners are striking for high pay. I provided a solution. With my solution, they get higher pay, they also have to support their lifestyle (housing, food, clothing, etc).

Thinking or hoping that this 19 day strike will "change the penal system" is a perfect example of naivety....

Here is a hint that I'm sure nobody will be surprised is way way over your head and usual level of thought. But let's try anyway. If you have to chop out everything I did say, and then you have to literally change the words to the only line from my post you could manage to quote in order to make your brain dead on arrival insult? You're not just a dishonest hack but moron too.

In any case I was speaking about more reform being needed. Of course you'd have to actually be able to read and respond to the OP and the points made in it and by me afterwards in order to intelligently comment on the matter. As usual, you don't really do much "thinking" around PW. You have however managed to perfectly illustrate the head in the sand and ass in the air metaphor. Good job Dave, you really "thought" long and hard before you posted huh?
