    Sorry, I am cynically hardened by conservatives in the Trump movement.

    sorry you could not accept a simple thank you.

    and it was not you to whom I was referring with the rest of my comment. And even then, I did not say anything about liberals.

    But just to be clear,
    thank you for hiring those who have paid their debts and are trying again to be productive members of society.

    and for further clarity, as Joan pointed out and is the case with a divided government, this was and had to be a bi-partisan effort.

    I watched it on TV and it brought tears and cheers. Trump gave credit to liberal demos who also worked in a bi-partisan way getting this passed. ...something that has been long overdue. It may well be in circa 1840 the Prophet Joseph Smith was the first to speak about sentencing, incarnations and prison reform concerning two young men who were to be sent to prison.

    The hated liberals have pushed hard for fair and equal treatment for everyone.

    Trump is not the founder of giving former inmates equal opportunity.

    I have found hiring former inmates to be a very good experience. There are those that are truly repentant and are willing to go the extra mile to make changes in their lives.

    Working with them has been very rewarding.

    So he can hire Manafort and friends when they get out?

    Interesting that Trump has chosen this issue.

    Is he worried about his future, or that of his children?
