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

Ken Burns, ‘The Central Park Five’: 6/4/13

On April 18th or 19th, 1989, Trisha Meils was the victim of a horrific rape; arrested/charged with the crime were Antron McCray, Raymond Santana Jr., Yusef Salaam, Korey Wise, and Kevin Richardson, they confessed.

Actually, no, they didn’t; these young men were framed, the frame up had respected politicians using the case to justify bringing the death penalty back. The crime plead on some basic American racial-feelings, black men raping a white woman; it was… 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

High Heel Shoes For Women, Why?: 4/30/13

What’s fashionable about having the women we love walk around on stilts, their feet arched at unnatural and uncomfortable angle, toes crushed, putting pressure on back and the rest off their bodies? I’ve never heard one women say that after walking around in high heels all day or night, that their feet were comfortable. Yeah, I’ve seen some women look real good in high heels, but, so! It hurts; think, we wouldn’t give our daughters… Continue reading

Root/CAUSE of child bullying, legality of them being bullied

Children learn more from what adults do, rather than what they say. Adults defend spanking; tradition, religion, ‘Spare the rod, spoil the child, Pro 13:24’, ‘If you beat them they will not die, Pro 23:13.’ Our courts a parents right to discipline/beat/bully their children; what if the child asked the courts to enforce biblical law surrounding adultery; Lev 20:10, ‘kill adulterers’ ? Nervous? Accused felons and prisoners have more constitutional protection from being bullied and… Continue reading

White House Petition Against Corporal Punishment

Why is it 1egal to hit kids, but not prisoners?

“Do not withhold correction from a child, for if you beat [them] with a rod, [they] will not die.”Proverbs 23:13, ‘spare the rod, spoil the child’, we use the Bible to justify beating our children. Hmmm, Leviticus 20:9, says; anyone who curses [their] father or mother should be put to death; 20.:10, says anyone committing adultry should he put to death. We’re not… Continue reading

Suspended Miranda rights for U.S. Citizen’s: 4/21/13

I didn’t know that an American citizen’s miranda, 5th amendment constitutional rights could be suspended, ignored; norIknow that it could be suspended and the person questioned by a special interrogation team. Does that mean enhanced interrogation techniques can be employed when ‘someone’ deems miranda/5th amendment suspended? Boston marathon, horrific crime, yes; but be careful what weassent to in fear, slippery slope. Our forefathers had the hindsight to know that mob justice, isn’t justice; what is it, un-American.

Lose Our Spirit/Morality to Revenge : 4/21/13

Boston marathon terrorist attack has us sad, mad, at the root of these emotions, FEAR. We want revenge, celebrated in the street, . . .”We got him!” Question, got who? The person (Dzhokhar Tsarnaev/tool) who committed an act we’re describing as terrorist, or, do we get and have we challenged ourselves to address what motivates anyone to do that?

We don’t win catching a terrorist or a criminal who’s acted, have

we not noticed that… Continue reading
