Wow, that was one of the dumbest ideas I've ever seen.

Oh, that is weird.
I can see what they are thinking: rural NY is the biggest milk producer in the USA... and the state intends to use rural NY as the place to build new prisons.

However, that is weird.
It doesn't advocate an end to prisons: it advocates a "don't put prisons in my backyard" approach, while also advocating the imprisonment of cows.

I will definitely be posting on that one. I know the folks at JustSeeds quite well (mostly through my wife), and we might just have a real live conversation with them and skip the online thing altogether. My wife will be miffed.

I'm so glad you posted this.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

Even without discussing the hypocrisy it's dumb and a huge waste of money.
