    Can we at least agree on this?

    …….Newt Gingrich And Jay-Z Find Common Cause In A Prison Reform Proposition……

    ……A few weeks later, two other public figures delivered a similar rap, albeit in a different forum. In a Los Angeles Times op-ed piece, Newt Gingrich, the Republican politician, and B. Wayne Hughes Jr., a conservative Christian businessman, similarly urged Californians to end bloated spending on prisons and reverse tough-on-crime policies that they say have failed to significantly improve public safety. Among other things, Gingrich and Hughes pointed out that California now spends $62,396 per prisoner each year, and $9,200 per K-12 student.

    The unusual alliance between progressives like Jay-Z and conservatives such as Gingrich comes as Californians are set to go to the polls next month to vote on Proposition 47, a ballot initiative that would re-classify several low-level nonviolent crimes such as drug possession and most theft involving less than $950 from felonies to misdemeanors. The vote will occur two decades after Californians passed a landmark tough-on-crime three-strikes law, which sentenced three-time felons to 25-years-to-life prison sentences, even if the third felony was for drug possession or a minor theft..

    We can’t have nice things: will all this make my favorite Muslim convienence store put the SI swimsuit edition back on his shelves or let him continue to hide them and pick who he sells them to?

    The only law needed is a shopkeep to post who is or is not welcome on the front door.
    Example:
    Men: no shirt, no service….women: no shirt, free beer
