    JOE ARPAIO for President!!!!!!!

    TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO - HE IS THE MARICOPA COUNTY SHERIFF AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER. THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY


    Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona) who created the "tent city jail":

    He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them. He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights. Cut off all but "G" movies. He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

    Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination. He took away cable TV until he found out there was federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again only let in the Disney channel and the weather channel. When asked why the weather channel he replied, so they will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.

    He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value. When the inmates complained, he told them, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton.

    If you don't like it, don't come back."

    He bought Newt Gingrich' lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails. When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.

    More on the Arizona Sheriff: With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record), the Associated Press reports: About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their government issued pink boxer shorts. On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week before. Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their pink socks. "It feels like we are in a furnace," said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the tents for 1-1/2 years. It's inhumane."

    Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: It's 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn't commit any crimes, so shut your damned mouths!"

    Way to go, Sheriff! Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.

    Great stuff thats the kind of guys we need to clean the world up.

    It is LAW in the USA that the inmates have to have cable TV available to them? holy shit There must be thousands of poor families that have never done any kind of crime who cannot afford even the basic cable. Stuff like this stinks.
    One day parasites and their ilk will be made illegal, I bet a few Lawyers will be pissed off when the day comes.

    Guess how many desire to come back to that jail? The liberal sensitivity groups hate this guy, but haven't had to triple lock their doors in years if they live in his county. PS; the openly gay prisoners are forced to wear blue, not pink. The same ACLU calling folks who are raising the next generation of spoil brat kids, who'll never respect any governmental or school authority by the time their 8.

    Sheriff Joe has the right idea. He is now up for re-election so we're hoping he wins another term. Pity there aren't more like him.

    Not everyone like this guy.

    An anti-Joe website

    A Republican Primary Opponent thinks little of the old Sheriff.

    Prosecuters don't like him either.

    A Phoenix paper even has a dedicated section about this guy. Phoenix New Times.

    Also, he allegedly has a "Special Treatment" jail where relatives of his campaign contributors go to serve their sentences without the discomforts of his regular jail.

    While not directing comments at the good Sheriff, Sen. John McCain has seen fit to endorse his opponent in the Republican prinary.

    I LOVE IT!

    Jail is *supposed to* suck. I think those without much to look forward to on the "outside" often wouldn't be bothered enough by confinement alone for it to serve as a real deterrant, if it didn't suck to be in the jail!

    Oh yeah, this is the jail where Glen Campbell was sent for extreme drunken driving and leaving the scene of an accident. Except, according to CNN, he "was allowed to leave the jail, where he had a indoor private cell, during the day to handle business affairs, returning overnight."

    The Sheriff, does have a soft side though, and had Campbell give a free 30 minute concert at the tent jail. Campbell told the inmates "Sometimes it's hard to take what you get." Like he should know.

    Joe for President. Yeah right.

    Wayne--After reading some of your "anti" links, I think I'd be *very* careful before making that guy president.

    But to be fair when considering how he's doing as a *sherrif,* I'd have to see what abuse complaints there are against the jails of other major counties for comparison purposes. I know that in a prison/jail environment, some pretty egregious things can happen and it's not confined to Arizona.

    I do think that the principle (jails should suck) is right, but true abuse should be the rare exeception, not the rule.

    As for the general conditions like the inmates sweltering away, though, I say tough. It's gotten within 15 degrees of that right here (inside the house--it's always hotter inside in the summer), and I don't have any air conditioning either. So I'm not filled with pity over the idea of guys sweating in the 110. Sheesh, that's only 6 degrees hotter than the record temperature inside this house (104)--a temperature that I was *sleeping through* without even a fan on!

    Pink clothes--that shouldn't really be so humiliating when they're ALL stuck wearing the same thing.

    Go Joe, he should be president...so what if some of his prisoners get special treatment, that happens all the way to the highest level of our government. Atleast the average prisoner suffers like he/she is supposed to. For most prisoners, jail is a step up from the slum they were committing crimes in before they got there. It's just a training camp for them to think of new schemes, work out and become stronger and more fierce and build up more angst while they watch the news. think Joe has the right idea on what the jail experience should consist of. I especially love the Disney channel idea, that will nullify the hatred or bad thoughts of the inmates..

    Yeah, and Mussolini "made the trains run on time." (Which wasn't true actually.)

    Check the recidivism rate of inmates in his county. His methods of treating prisoners, some of whom have yet to be convicted of any crime, don't work any better than coddling them. You live in a dreamland if you think the Disney Channel "will nullify the hatred or bad thoughts " in inmates kept like animals. Even the police organizations in the Valley oppose him.

    Tough talking, corrupt politician, serving his own interests and those of the wealthy whose ass he kisses. You don't expect much in your leaders, do you?

    lol! You know, before you guys go writing his name in on your ballot, consider this.

    First, running a jail isn't *quite* the same thing as running a country.

    Second, that guy runs his prison as an autocracy. Would you really want to live in a society like that? I like democracy. I don't like dictatorships.

    I hope he has a good medical staff. Some prisoners are old or infirm. A sentence for "time" should never turn into a death sentence.

    Sherrif Joe for President has already written his 1st State of the Union speech.

    My Fellow Americans:

    As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has been completed. Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete. This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now to begin the reckoning.

    Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

    The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the worlds n ations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

    Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.

    The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hell-holes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

    Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

    In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home.

    On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, Spain or maybe China.


    To Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Yo, boys. Work out a peace deal now. Just note that Camp David is closed. Maybe all of you can go to Russia for negotiations. They have some great palaces there. Big tables, too.


    I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.


    I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousand s of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers, and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York.

    A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not to xxxxxxx us off for a change. Mexico is also on List 2. All Canadian residents from Country#1 list may seek USA visas. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security.


    So start doing something with your oil.


    Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty --- starting now.

    We are tired of the one-way highway. It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens.


    Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them be saying, "darn tootin."


    Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. It is time to eliminate World Cup Soccer from America.



    To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thanks guys. We owe you and we won't forget.



    To the nations on List 2, a final thought. Drop dead.



    God bless America. And God bless List 1.
    Thank you and good night.

    If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier. If you reading this in my former Tent City jail you get an extra portion of bread and water.

    "And if you're a campaign contributor, there'll be a little something extra in your tax refund for you. And if you're in my special privilege jail, let us know if you would like the A/C at a more comfortable level and if there is anything else I can do for you. I'm tough but I'm also compassionate.

    LOL, you are right Leader, fluffy bunny rabbits would add a nice motif to the ensemble. Or they could all be wearing those t-shirts that read, "I'm with stupid -----&gt;" They should, at least, have a little fun with it.

    Well, the corporations are the big winners, as I understand it. They fired thousands of employees in this region alone, and shipped the jobs down to Mexico so they could reduce their payroll by 90%.

    So, if you weren't one of the ones that lost a job, you can buy stuff cheaper now, unless the companies are keeping the diff.
