Cruel and Unusual punishment


I say that Obama has gone too far this time.  I’m surprised that a lawsuit hasn’t been put forth for “cruel and unusual”  punishment.  I mean, everyone loves bacon!  But Pork comes off the menu at federal prisons anyway.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons has banned pork products from being served in its federal prisons as reported by the Washington Post.

The ban started with the new fiscal year and is attributed by the bureau to prisoners not liking pork. The “National Pork Producers Council” was highly skeptical.

On the other hand,  the council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has praised the move as the right thing to do saying, “In general we welcome the change because it’s facilitating the accommodation of Muslim inmates.”
