    Where are the Longs?

    by pschkqitzsough May 15, 2014 9:56 PM

    Right when Occupy Wallstreet movement started, I told my broker this would be a great stock to own. Well... I was right and this stock doubled since I called it.

    I'm not provoking anything here, but lots of news of millions of new citizens are coming to help this country grow... no way this stock is going down.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    You can push the thumbs down button, but can't articulate a reason for your belief? This is a sign you may want to re-think your position.

  • How could anyone be crazy enough to invest in an industry that is being demonized by Republicans and Democrats not to mention 95% of the public? I'll be shorting this to under a $1, but would love to see the bullish case if one can even be fathomed..

    U.S. Has Less Than 5% of World’s Population but Nearly 25% of People Behind Bars; Drug War Fueled Prison Explosion
    A groundbreaking report released on Wednesday by the National Research Council, the principal operating arm of the National Academy of Sciences, documents the unprecedented and costly price of U.S. incarceration rates.
    With less than five percent of the world’s population but nearly 25 percent of the world’s prisoners, the United States continues to rank first among nations in both prison and jail population and per capita rates. As the report points out, this unprecedented rate of incarceration is a relatively new phenomenon in U.S. history. America’s prison population exploded largely as a result of the failed Drug War policies of the last 40 years.
    The report, commissioned by the National Institute of Justice and the MacArthur Foundation, documents how the Drug War has contributed to the skyrocketing U.S prison population and the staggering costs associated with mass incarceration. The report points out that U.S. incarceration rates are 5-10 times higher than rates in Western Europe and other major democracies.
    The report also documents the staggering racial disparities in drug enforcement and incarceration.
    The report calls for a significant reduction in rates of imprisonment and says that the rise in the U.S. prison population is “not serving the country well.” It concludes that in order to significantly lower prison rates, the U.S. should revise its drug enforcement and sentencing laws.
    “It’s time to end the United States’ exceptionalism when it comes to incarcerating its citizens," said Ethan Nadelmann, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA). "Our objective should be to make America average. We need to re-join the family of civilized nations when it comes to incarceration.

    News article says rating isn't lowered by clemency plans. What about profits and revenue? Hmmm I wonder if they will be lower after kicking people out who should never have been there in the first place and also putting fewer in that never should have been there in the first place. The laws are the criminal behavior...
