gotta load up the prisons to keep the machine running

From TPM

Not As Brave As We Used To Be

Number of Gitmo detainees that the GOP hopes to keep off mainland U.S. soil with its "Keep Terrorists Out Of America Act": roughly 250.

Number of Axis POWs detained in camps on the U.S. mainland at the end of WWII: roughly 425,000.

Seriously, Conservatives can be such whiny babies. Prisons are big business, and they get nearly all of their support from Conservatives. So I fail to see why Conservatives are crying about keeping terrorist prisoners of our soil. Besides, once all the potheads get let out of prison, they'll need warm bodies to keep the machine running.

Remember, more Japanese suicide bombers gave their lives trying to kill Americans in WWII than did terrorists ever. I'm not sure how many of them were interred in US prison camps, but it's worth keeping in mind.
