Maybe we could make it another 'Supermax' class prison, like the one in Colorado where we keep our most dangerous prisioners, including terrorists and mass murders. We could place there high level mobsters and those conviced of major finanicial crimes like the recently conviced Enron executives. We need more of these extreme prisions as we convict more high threat people who need the most miminially humane treatment. The isolated site surrounded by military, difficult for defense attorneys to get to and impossible to escape from, would be a great spot for the worst of the worst in the Federal jail system.

Quoting Dtwclipper (Reply 2): Let's turn Gitmo over to a good develper, bring in some good hotels, a pier for cruise ships and let Americans get a tast of Cuba.
Great idea...one problem though....It really is Cuban land and maybe it's best to let them decide.....Who knows, maybe they don't wish to have American visitors! (role reversal).
I was there just a few weeks ago and we were told that historically there was an agreement between USA and Cuba that the land at Guantanamo Bay was to be "rented" to the US for a very low figure per year (we were told by the local guide that it was 2000 Peso/year!!!...which is obviously a very low figure and not sure of it's accuracy).
Castro has apparently promised the Cuban people that he will never cash the cheques and that the day the Americans finally leave his land, he will build a museum and display the un-cashed cheques.

Quoting SlamClick (Thread starter): To open negotiations I will give up Ann Coulter and to balance her, the left gives up Michael Moore. These have to be no-debate, decisions of the judges are final, and pairs of comparable magnitude.
Quoting TedTAce (Reply 11): But they both have to be in a cell with only a bed, and absolutely no clothes (or video cameras)
You want Coulter to vomit herself to death? Now that's cruel and unusual!
In the interest of a less confrontational political system in civ-av, can we have a representative of the fascists at Airbus, who who dictate what pilots can and cannot do, and a representative of the pinkos at Boeing who believe all pilots are created equal?
