There are many documented cases of radical Imams coming into US prisons, indoctrinating disaffected (and already criminal) blacks to become violent jihadists. There's at least one case where two indoctrinated black Americans escaped from prison (Torrance, CA) and went on to plot terrorist attacks. That's the unintended consequence of you feel-good idiots. I believe you misunderstood my post. I am all for keeping them at GITMO and NOT bringing them into the country. I don't want Achmed or Ismail or any of the other camel-humpers anywhere near our families. And I am NOT a feel-good idiot, thank you.

Publius-I can't imagine how anyone would have seen your handle and not realized that you aren't a lib.

Not everyone knows who Publius was or understands the meaning of the name. I don't fault them for that, it's just the way it is.

Actually, there were many men named Publius in Ancient Rome. The word itself is a masculine given name meaning "Public". And, of course, it is the pen name used by Alexander Hamiltion, James Madison and John Jay when they wrote the series of letters that came to be known as "The Federalist Papers".

Seems to me I remember one of the 'Federalists' papers used that "Publius" pen-name for whatever reason. Maybe not-I'm old AND crazy!

OK-I'm not so crazy after all?
If you thought President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder had given up on closing Guantanamo Bay and bringing jihadists to American soil, think again. Two troubling developments on the Gitmo front should have every American on edge.

The first White House maneuver took place in October, while much of the public and the media were preoccupied with election news. On Oct. 2, Obama's cash-strapped Illinois pals announced that the federal government bought out the Thomson Correctional Center in western Illinois for $165 million. According to, a recent appraisal put the value of the facility at $220 million.
