And, IIRC, a "Nazi". It was Nazi, wasn't it? I'd be embarrassed to hate you like poison for the wrong reason.

I did think that, but I also thought the US may be having the same problem as the UK, where the prison service is so understaffed and overcrowded you could probably present with signs of ebola and not see a doctor for over 6 weeks.

Not MY friend, but sadly my brother's taste in both people and ideology leaves something to be desired.
You have my condolences.
Thanks. In truth I'm actually pretty fucked up about it. We have... bad blood, but he's my kin and I can't force him to conform to what I consider wise. I just hope he one day realizes how far up his butt his head is before it's too late to extract it.
My brother tries very hard to get a rise out of me, and our father, by claiming he's a diehard Trump supporter. As I don't even bother to acknowledge his statements, he's not getting the reaction out of me that he wants.
In truth, I think my brother is looked for any kind of revenge he can get for the decades of agony I've put him, and his son, through over his/their unwavering dedication to one of the worst sports franchises in Major League Baseball. That, of course, is the Philadelphia Phillies. Being Yankees fans, our dad and I have had a lot to gloat about over the years.
(I suspect Roger will be around soon to formally announce that this is an off-topic thread highjacking, and demand that it be moved elsewhere.)

Except, as the article notes:QuoteLegal experts said forcing defendants to work for free might violate their constitutional rights. The 13th Amendment bans slavery and involuntary servitude in the United States, except as punishment for convicts. That's why prison labor programs are legal. But many defendants sent to programs such as CAAIR have not yet been convicted of crimes, and some later have their cases dismissed.
Anyway, I mostly bring it up because RWHN always said he preferred addiction treatment to prison, when it sounds like the two aren't very different at all.

Here's a good way to summon RWHN
https://www.revealnews.org/article/they-thought-they-were-going-to-rehab-they-ended-up-in-chicken-plants/QuoteMcGahey had heard of Christian Alcoholics & Addicts in Recovery. People called it "the Chicken Farm," a rural retreat where defendants stayed for a year, got addiction treatment and learned to live more productive lives. Most were sent there by courts from across Oklahoma and neighboring states, part of the nationwide push to keep nonviolent offenders out of prison.
Aside from daily cans of Dr Pepper, McGahey wasn't addicted to anything. The judge knew that. But the Chicken Farm sounded better than prison.
A few weeks later, McGahey stood in front of a speeding conveyor belt inside a frigid poultry plant, pulling guts and stray feathers from slaughtered chickens destined for major fast food restaurants and grocery stores.
There wasn't much substance abuse treatment at CAAIR. It was mostly factory work for one of America's top poultry companies. If McGahey got hurt or worked too slowly, his bosses threatened him with prison.
And he worked for free. CAAIR pocketed the pay.
"It was a slave camp," McGahey said. "I can't believe the court sent me there."
Soon, it would get worse.
Sure, it sounds bad. But the Constitution clearly condones slavery, as long as the slave has been convicted of a crime first. They don't even technically need to be guilty. Just convicted.

If it's prevalent as an anti-Semitic thing now I'm totally open to replacing it.

I'm here because Rog left a pretty intense message on my personal Facebook, and I think the whole thing's pretty dumb but wanted to address it.
1. I interviewed 'Uncle BadTouch' online but am not planning to use the interview.
2. I was going to meet someone who I am pretty sure was a Uncle BadTouch alt but they bailed.
That's the extent of my connection with Uncle BadTouch. If you want to carry on with this paranoid theory that I joined the Uncle BadTouch brotherhood and have been tasked with going after you personally or whatever the current theory you indulge is, I guess carry on like a pork chop here. But while I'm sorry that something I'm honestly not entirely clear on (I'm not so familiar with the figures of CoS) has happened that has hurt people you care about, I don't really have interest in being chased around the internet being blamed for it.
You often would say things like 'how do these people find me' when you attracted viscous, obsessive 'fans' on this forum, who wouldn't leave you alone. I would like you to consider the possibility that you are doing the same to me.
