Hire Felons? Lowering the Bar…

Hire Felons? Lowering the Bar…

I heard today that the federal government is going to screen job applicants to make sure there’s NO DISCRIMINATION in regards to felons… WOW.

This is the problem with America under liberal control. The Lowering of expectations, the “Fairness” above effort. We’ve created a CONSEQUENCE FREE society.


Think about this: The way it used to be is PARENTS and TEACHERS used to tell kids that if you broke laws there was a punishment. If you were a felon, you’d lose your rights to vote, own a gun and limit your chances of finding a job. NOW?

If you’re a felon, it wasn’t your fault. Why should you be punished for your actions it was a long time ago and you did your time. Never mind the person you killed or assaulted or Raped or Robbed.. You deserve “Fairness”…


In America now, there seems to be a push to disregard prior actions in favor of a perceived  FAIRNESS now. This sets a terrible precedent. But hey, our liberal idiots have already set so many poor precedents what’s another one?

The only criminals in the minds of our current leaders are hardworking, family raising, bible believing, gun owning, law abiding citizens. At this point a nation is past the point of no return. There is no coming back from this without bloodshed. History shows us where a consequence free society ends up. IF we’re too stupid to learn from history, we deserve a repeat performance.

Can you imagine the law suits? Applicant A, a “White” college graduate with a degree, who has never seen the inside of a police station, straight A’s through education… Vs applicant B, a “Minority” dropped out of high school, graduate from Pelican Bay State Prison with “good time” Employer picks candidate A and is immediately scrutinized because applicant B didn’t get a fair shake? WTF?


Oh, then there’s the very evident safety concern. Felon A gets a job, loses mind and kills a few co-workers. Media blames the tool the felon uses not the process in which Felon A got the job in the first place. (See Chris Dorner for more details on hiring wrong person) Yes I know Dorner wasn’t a felon, but the screening process obviously failed. WHY? Because to deny him the job is obviously a race based decision.. right? Idiots.


Stop the madness folks… The inmates are truly in charge of the asylum.

  1. The only trouble with your assessment is this: in many states the courts are now handing out felony charges like candy and in many cases these charges are leveled on young people at the start of their adult lives, throwing them under the bus before they have the chance to get some life experience under there belts. Do a little research on this topic in the state of Florida. I think most people unfamiliar with what goes on in Florida would be shocked and disgusted with what they learn. I’m sure there are other states with a similarly unacceptable track records but I’ve singled out FL as I’m speaking from personally witnessing this travesty on a regular basis.

    1. Okay Bill, you bring up the “Its the cops fault” type argument. So you’re of the opinion that there’s people in power who just pluck people off the street and charge them with felonies? No poor choices on the part of the person to cause this?

      The assessment I have is based on facts not emotion. Not some “.001%” of the system failures. The system we have is not perfect but its one of the best ones ever.

  2. And here’s what’s next:

    A federal law indicating states must let convicted felons vote. Because — gosh — who and what do you think they’d vote for?

    To Bill: I call BULLSHIT.

    I’m a cop, I’ve been one for 41 years, and I know how hard — particularly in Fornicalia where I work — you have to WORK to actually get INTO jail and then, subsequently, sentenced to prison or county time.
