Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

Now That's a Sheriff

Update on Joe Arpaio



Sheriff Joe Arpaio

(In Arizona)

who created the

"Tent City Jail":

He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jails. Took away their weights Cut off all but
"G" movies.

He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

Then He Started

Chain Gangs For Women

So He Wouldn't Get

Sued For


He took away cable TV Until

he found out there was


Federal Court Order


Required Cable TV For Jails.

So He Hooked Up The Cable TV Again

Only Let In The Disney Channel And The Weather Channel.

When asked why the weather channel

He Replied,

So They Will Know

How Hot It's Gonna Be

While They Are Working


My Chain Gangs.

He Cut Off Coffee

Since It Has

Zero Nutritional Value

When the inmates complained, he told them, "This Isn't

The Ritz/Carlton.

If You Don't Like It,

Don't Come Back."

He bought Newt Gingrich' lecture series on videotape that he pipes into the jails.

When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series might explain why a lot of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.

More On The Arizona Sheriff:

With Temperatures Being Even Hotter

Than Usual In Phoenix

(116 Degrees Just Set A New Record),

the Associated Press Reports:

About 2,000 Inmates Living In A Barbed-Wire-Surrounded Tent Encampment

At The

Maricopa County Jail Have Been Given Permission To Strip Down To Their Government-Issued

Pink Boxer Shorts.

On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached

138 Degrees

Inside The Week Before.

Many Were Also Swathed In Wet, Pink Towels As Sweat Collected On Their Chests And Dripped Down To Their PINK SOCKS.

"It Feels Like We Are In A Furnace,"

Said James Zanzot,

An Inmate Who Has Lived In The TENTS for 1 year.

"It's Inhumane."

Joe Arpaio,

the tough-guy sheriff

who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic

He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates: "It's 120 Degrees In Iraq And

Our Soldiers Are Living In Tents Too,

And They Have To

Wear Full Battle Gear,


They Didn't Commit Any Crimes,

So Shut Your Damned Mouths!"

Way To Go, Sheriff!

Maybe if all prisons were like this one

there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders.

Criminals should be punished for their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves.

Sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona.

I realize that this post may offend some people, especially those that espouse rights for criminals. I held on to this for a while because I did not want to offend anyones sensibilities. But, every time I looked at it it just cried out to be posted. The straw the broke the camel's back for me was the fact that he does not discriminate; he treats all criminals the same no matter their sex, religion or race. I feel that prison should be a place that no one wants to go to. That should be the persuasive factor that convinces a convicted felon that he or she does not want to return. I also feel that prisons should be self supporting.

You have my vote and so has the Sheriff. I could have worked for him just fine. I spent 25 years looking at the losest of the low. They have too my rights if you ask me. My last assignment was the comander of the Men's Jail (hard-lock facility). You just have no idea of the vast cream of the crude that I dealt with. Great post Mel. :)

Good Post. People that became prisoner should learn, reform and never go to prison again.
