I don't feel like answering this no doubt fascinating question.

My point was:

The set of civilian federal convicts eligible for parole approximates
the empty set.

I made this point because:

Spike was talking about specific policies regarding federal convicts not
eligible for parole, as if there were a significant number that _were_
eligible for parole; as it turns out, probably unknown to Spike, the
only people potentially eligible for parole in the federal system are
military convicts and persons convicted for crimes committed before the
"no paroles" date listed.

All clear?
