File this under: Political costs vs. economic costs, examples of

Here's a bit on a small Montana town that wants its unused prison to house some of the world's worst terrorists.

I figure the calculus is as follows:

Cost of housing Gitmo detainees: $X
Cost to Hardin for housing Gitmo detainees: < $X
Benefit to local politicians behind the arrangement: Priceless!

It's also interesting to note that it's the local, not state-level, politicians that are in favor of the move.

Lastly, you should know that the online therapist finder is really appropriate.

Moreover, once you start disliking your partner, even the smallest of their mistakes seem
blunders to you and ultimately it would led to differences between both of you.
However, with CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy one can
see profound changes in the behavior of couples.
