Prison-Industrial Complex

Back in 2003, while still working for "the man" and plotting my escape, I'd wake up early to write and throw a tape in the tape player, to record The Jeff Rense Program. Later, listening to my tape during my 35 minute commute allowed me to bypass the usual drivel passing for commercial radio and catch up on some cutting edge news, Jeff's prescriptions for better health, as well as the assorted conspiracy fodder and UFO stories.

For the uninitiated, Rense's program runs the gamut of tinfoil hat topics, but what sets him apart from other conspiricy peddlars, is Rense's great interview style and mixture of topics that could best be called prescient. Plus, it was more provocative and entertaining than the usual corporate hacks reading their infomercials passed off as news and journalism.

Interestingly, the topic of the U.S. building detention centers/prisons always intrigued me, but three years ago, it seemed alarmist to think bad thoughts about the issue.

But, directly from the Halliburton corporate website, we have this press release, indicating that these friends of George and Dick have been awarded an IDIQ contract for building U.S. detention facilities, in support of the Department of Homeland Security.

Three years later, only to the truly deluded and those in denial would stories like this and this seen far-fetched and beyond the pale.

The current crew in power, with their veil of secrecy, are plotting our nation's demise, as I type this.

I've been hearing about this and am not sure what to make of it. It's easier for me to believe that the government allowed or even supported 911 hijackers than it is to accept the implications of this.
