Modern slavery?

People, especially in gubmint, never seem to think something ALLLLL the way through before proposing we do more of it.  It's happened time and time again.  This idea of Patti from ID, however, is a hammer to the head of most taxpaying people of the USA.  She needs a Darwin award for stupidity.

Here's her proposal:

"And modern slavery. An Idaho bill that would allow all sectors of the state’s agriculture industry to use inmate labor has passed a major legislative hurdle, Capital Press reports. As we reported last year, Idaho has been running a pilot, called the Agricultural Work Program, which allowed six companies to contract work to state prisoners. Now, the legislator behind this pilot, Republican Senator Patti Anne Lodge, is pushing for its expansion. The thinking was that doing so would simultaneously rehabilitate inmates and fill labor shortages. The lack of thinking was that this program essentially reinforces the prison-industrial complex, and incentivizes the legal system to keep prisons filled."

In retrospect, however, it's no different, really, than what our illegal immigration laws are doing.  Trying to keep illegals here in the States (WHY?) is costing taxpayers a fortune and we aren't making up the difference anywhere else to balance it out.  THAT is how our gubmint goons operate though.  The left half of their brain has no idea what the right half of their brain is up to.  IMPHHO, the whole brain of these people is dysfunctional.
