LaMerle’s Thoughts

Domestic Violence

People who engage in domestic violence, or accept being subjected to such, are struggling with issues that need to be addressed. When not addressed through intervention, proof i in our statistical crime reports. First suspect in a killing is always the spouse, why? And since we know we usually suspect and or need to clear the spouse, what does that say about what we know and are not addressing about relationships, the #1 suspect, the… Continue reading

Pro-Choice

Roe v. Wade will soon be irrelevant in many states, Texas etc., because the opportunity to afford yourself of choice will be so limited that many unwanted pregnancies/childbirth’s will occur.
I wouldn’t want any of my children to be aborted, my personal opinion. But should I be able to make a woman carry to term a baby she doesn’t want/need; if so, am I willing to spend my tax dollars in helping her raise that… Continue reading

Treyvon Martin, George Zimmerman

RIP little brother. Why does it take such a senseless act to spur the minority to pay attention to and engage public policy, politics; indifference and you awaken to laws existing in 31 of the 50 estates with has legalized the killing of your children.
On 07/17/13, Michelle Alexander, author of “The New Jim Crow”, appeared on radio, www. democracynow.org, she hand some very interesting things to say; also appearing that day was someone… Continue reading

To My/Our Gay/Lesbian Friends/Family

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ song “Same Love” says a lot and lays the foundation for so much more. god Bless!

Obama / Snowden / NSA / America

I’m not comfortable writing about this, I don’t want and especially don’t need to be on any anti-government list. But ….
What does America mean when you can’t question government without ending cup on some watch list; what does it mean when our “Press” is corporate-sponsored-owned and they basically do PR for government press releases; what does it mean when our government outright lies to us, gets caught, and we accept that t-HE-y “mis-spoke”; what… Continue reading

My Son

Our journey hasn’t always been easy; yesterday you told me you love me. I felt/feel it. To know you love me, I’d die a thousand times, thus I’ll breath as long as I can under any type of condition. I’m proud of you! Love Dad.

Paula Dean

Plantation wedding for her brother, use of the word nigger (not niggah), during the 1980’s; hmmmm. Personally I’m not that upset about it. Why? I was born in 1971, many of the oppressed blacks that raised/reared me often made statements/comments that were prejudiced based; honky, redneck, white-devil, etc., and those feelings ran so deep that if in a position of power they would have had/implemented racist policies/practices that adversely affected whites.
So, why are we… Continue reading

U.S. Supreme Court

DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act ) decision, got that right.
California Prop *; passed the buck on a procedural issue, “No Standing; why then, grant Cert in the first place”, but in the end, just outcome that needs to evolve to other states.
Voting Rights, gutting the law; sadly but realistically, many still harbor prejudice and are in positions to implement racist policies to restrict the vote and other rights. We’d like to think that… Continue reading

Justice departments unwarranted actions against press under the guise of national security; hmmm.

Freedom of press, on of the most patriotic things is to ask questions;

  • National security always a real concern, but the statement of such is not a blanket to oppress tax-payers questions about what’s being done with their tax-dollars and in their names.
  • Drone-attacks; what enemies are we creating for tomorrow, when we kill masses in order to get to one, calling the innocent of that or other groups, accidental collateral damage, supposedly making us… Continue reading

Why so serious, no, seriously why?

Why so serious, no, seriously why? Does it make us more adult like, mature; does it make time stop, speed up, get us to what, when? Are we living when in serious mode, or are we failing to live and are settling in existence because we fail to see/fell during that state of mind.

Why as an adult am I encourage not to doubt me, encouraged to act as if I know it all, that… Continue reading
