Let's see. The Republicans massacred 5000 American soldiers for no purpose. And ran up another $3trillion in debts to do so. Cheney said, "Reagan proved that deficits don't matter." Yeph. That makes then really trustworthy.

Which goes far to demonstrate you don't find anything to recommend the Democrats either. And I seem to recall Saddam's Overthrow (no small purpose) had bipartisan support, and kept it.

Anti-Republican bigotry does not suffice.

Not for long, it would appear.


Quote:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed legislation Friday creating a pathway for inmate firefighters to become professionals after they are released.

The bill, AB2147, allows certain prisoners who are on the front lines of wildfire containment to have their records expunged after serving their sentences.

Without the barrier of a criminal record, the former prisoners can seek employment as firefighters. The bill excludes those convicted of certain crimes, such as murder, kidnapping, rape, arson or any felony punishable by death or life imprisonment.

They may not have a record but a sizable hole in the resume/work history.
