Obama didn't make this

Sorry I have been away, been nursing back to back to back colds.  Hard having a little guy in preschool, he brings home every disease possible.  But to my blog point.  I have heard a lot of chatter the past couple days about Obama, Barry Obama releasing 6000 prisoners from federal prison.  First off Obama had absolutely nothing to do with this.  This was actually panned along time ago by the federal sentencing commission realizing that sentences have gotten out of hand.  Second a new article talked about that many of these 6000 are already released.  Also not true, many of them are in Federal Halfway houses awaiting release at the end of the month.  They are not released and trust me a Federal Halfway house is no place to have fun, I am sure many of them wish they were back in prison.  Honestly the reduction in a few of these sentences didn't really mean a whole lot.  These are mostly first time no violent drug offenders who made a mistake, nothing more.  Its time to reunite these people with their families.
