Default Feds purchase Thomson Prison-I just don't understand

So I guess President Obama decided on his own to go against congress and bought Thompson Prison. I just don't even understand anymore why we have a "system" or laws when people can do what ever they want as long as they are the government.

Hopefully that will help some of the overcrowding in other Federal Prisons, but it will probably be a VERY long time till it is up and running. I have learned thru this ordeal there is not always justice in this system, just the government making money.

Believe me I feel the positives of the situation as I live in Illinois and it does give that many more chances for him to be close to home. It still just makes me sick how our "system" works.(money) And fear that they will not keep there word about not sending GITMO prisoners here.

I heard tgis is his run around congress to bring the Gitmo inmates to U.S. shores where they will have all the rights of any citizen.
I guess if he gets re-elected then we will find out.

I'm still confused as to how there is all this money for the Feds yet my child's school district can't even fix the sewer problem. I love my hubby but think he could do with out the movie theater and fitness center in his prison for my kids to have decent schools

I hadn't been following this story at all until I saw this post, and immediately after reading this, I found this article.

Looks like someone has plans.
