Nothing like state-sanctioned, 25 cents an hour slave labor… Courtesy of the contractual quotas built into these government contracts.

    Income and property taxes prove slavery is alive and well in America.

  • America’s prison system with all its inherent problems (including it’s slavery issue) wouldn’t be necessary had the late 18th-century founders not rejected Yahweh as sovereign and thus His law as supreme.

    Under the Bible’s juridical system prisons are superfluous. Convicted capital criminals are put to death expeditiously, per Ecclesiastes 8:11. Non-capital criminal are required to pay two to five times restitution (depending upon the nature of the crime) to their VICTIMS, per Exodus 22:1ff, etc. If a thief is unable to pay the required restitution, he’s to be sold into indentured servitude until restitution has been paid, per Exodus 22:3. If he refuses to pay restitution, his contempt of court is a capital crime for which he’s to be put to death expeditiously, per Deuteronomy 17:9-13.

    Perfect, just like King David said it was in Psalm 19:7-11. Under such a system, crime would be all but unheard of and tax-paid-for prisons would non-existent.

    For more on how Yahweh’s triune moral law (His Ten Commandments and their respective statutes and judgments) applies and should be implemented today, see free online book “Law and Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New
    Covenant” at

    Contrary to popular belief, the 13th Amendment didn’t totally outlaw slavery. Section 1 of the amendment reads:

    “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

    So, according to the Constitution, it’s totally legal to “enslave” someone who has been convicted of a crime. The government is, by law, allowed to contract out this “enslavement” to private parties, hence private prisons.

    It still sucks regardless.

      Thank you for pointing this out. There are a number of things thought to be rights that are not. Another example is a “jury of our peers”. Under the constitution it is a jury from the district you are being tried in. And the big lie of the right to be represented by an attorney. It’s assistance of counsel–NOT representation. Big difference. Being represented means you are incompetent and why judges ignore you or tell you to shut up when you have an attorney. Assistance means they act as a reference library and coach.

      Good point, well done. Now we need to revise the Constitution.

      • endofwatchersbegan1/28/2011

        “Kazoo”, not gazoo. – Blood bought the Constitution. Blood will be all that ever revises it, unless by hook and crook, which we see plainly by the criminals called Senators and Congressmen.

          We’ll see about that. Habe you noticed all of the incumbents who are not running again ? This country was founded by Freemasons for Freemasons. Check out this video:

      Yep. Pointed that out hundreds of time over the years.

      My take on it is that it was one of the first real (Constitutional) attacks on the American people. Basically, all it did was take the power to own slaves out of the people’s hands while retaining it for the Government itself.

      If you think about it, the 13th amendment created the modern courts/prison system as well as set a Constitutional precedent for prohibition, the war on drugs, as well as a host of other laws which incarcerate people wholesale.

      Hell, even the primary stop seat-belt laws tie in.

      Keep in mind that prison slave labor takes jobs and money away from honest working people, while the prisoners are paid almost nothing.
      More and more items are being made by prisoners, and more private corporations are subcontracting their work to prisons in return for sweetheart deals and kickbacks.
      If you call an 800 number to order merchandise, there is a good chance your call is answered by a prisoner. This is becoming a national scandal and should be investigated.

      • Phil_Ossifer

        The prison system is also exempt from wage and hour laws. The system gets away with it because they maintain that work is, for a prisoner, a privilege and something that the prisoner volunteers to do. Which we all know is bullshit but the system keeps up the pretense, similar to the way the tax system still pretends that our system of income tax is “voluntary.” Yeah…just try NOT volunteering one year and see what happens. As an IRS commissioner said years ago, “You’re REQUIRED to volunteer.” Same with prisons.

  • Laurence Almand

    Private prisons have become a big industry in the USA, which has more people in prison than any other country. Most of the prisoners are in for non-violent crimes. Needless to say, there is a great deal of corruption, payoffs, kickbacks, etc. by these prison corporations to keep themselves in business.
    And just who is managing and auditing these institutions? And who owns most of their stock? The lawyers and judges?

  • Gregory Alan of Johnson

    Private corporations are the current (1871) system of governance on this land, and it actually started with Lincoln when the southern republics left Sine Dei.

    And of course the laws are written to keep the fines coming in to the government and the prisoners to keep filling up the prisons.
    When the government has a financial incentive to imprison people, everything becomes a punishable offense.

    • NonYo Business

      Pretty soon your words will get you imprisoned. ?

        We are living in a time when free speech is considered assault, but actual physical assault is considered free speech. How f*ed up is that? Like I always say, we deserve what we’re willing to tolerate.
