Contracting out the work would improve it somewhat, but it would still have metric chasing issues.
1x 9mm 124 grain hollow point $.27
1x 6ft deep hole in the ground $200

If you can't see the money incentive distortion that creates in the market place then you are pretty much an idiot.
If ex-cons are suffering from recidivism you the public are doing it wrong.
Get to the gun range and get your grouping a little tighter and for God's sakes, even though they are more expensive these days, don't be stingy with those 100% effective anti-recidivism devices (aka bullets).

This is about money pure and simple.
Doesn't mean most of my appliances will be running off of it.
I've got 4 100 watt panels that send power to my desk. All my devices and this computer are powered by what is stored in the battery that is in a box nearby.
My next 1000 watts will go to run the pool and all my backyard lighting. The power company can cry all it wants, but eventually my entire house will be off the grid.
How does "I mind my business and you mind yours" is so incompatible with things such as democracy or the freedom of speech or liberty? Well it does interfere with people calling for the harm and slavery of others, under the pretence of social justice and fairness, which is why you resorted to name calling instead of a logical argument for a response.

Not seeing how few regulations and low taxes for everyone equally on one hand, and lot's of taxes, loop holes, subsidies and regulations tilted towards favored or politically connected groups/business on the other hand is a false dichotomy.
Currently we have the second, and a great many of us would prefer the first. As far as throwning out the baby, the only false anything is equating with "few" and "low" as meaning the same as "none". Does that help any there Paul?
