The cost of prosecution and incarceration would come from the ones convicted by mandatory work farms instead of sitting in a cell doing little-to-nothing! There are needs all over the country and it's time people like that learn that you will pay your debt instead of costing taxpayers for the incarceration!

Are you kidding me? Maple Syrup? I think consumers can decide for themselves. With unemployment at 9.1% your debating Maple syrup? This is exactly what is wrong with congress and why your approval ratings are nill. Leave this business to consumers and do your jobs.

Leahy, claims he is an "Independent"- -well, he's NOT! He's just another anti-American progressive "junkie", from the backwoods of Vermont! He should be in prison, himself, for fraud, espionage, treason and just plain un-American thoughts and actions! He "thinks" he's a "political hotshot", he's just another "taker" - -a "professional" politician who never held a "real job" or did anything "useful"!
