Law to Commit Injustice

Imagine getting a 30-year prison sentence for having suffered a miscarriage. That’s what we get when authoritarians (esp. right-wingers, particularly the “religious” right) with a totally warped sense of justice rig the law and government to invade people’s lives and privacy, and to rip away their sovereignty in order to force their warped moral code on them. Cases like these are not just about women’s rights but what government and our laws should stand for in an enlightened civilization:

The Governor (and possibly a judge) of Arkansas is Guilty of Murder (Medium)

Imagine a state where criminal investigations and trials are sloppy, the involved state actors exclude exonerating evidence to cover up their callously careless treatment of people’s lives and resulting false convictions and executions of innocents, and where the decision to kill people is based on the expiration date on state-purchased chemicals. That’s Arkansas. If you have never looked more closely into the issue of death penalty, this article written by a former death roll prisoner of Arkansas – who got out by signing a promise never to sue the state for robbing him of 18 years of his life – may open your eyes. The monsters in this case are not the prisoners on death roll, but the corrupt goons in high office (a situation that should perhaps feel familiar by now if you live anywhere in America).

 

Trumpling People — Trump’s Ill-Conceived Travel Ban

A little over a week ago, Trump issued the “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States” Executive Order, banning nationals from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and Libya from entering the United States. Some people think this action necessary to ensure the safety and protection of American citizens, others feel it is discriminatory, unconstitutional, or even counter-productive. Some supporters have been thumping the Constitution and others raising the specter of Islamist terrorism. In part, I can agree (I definitely want us to do more for our safety), but I feel that some people are making this issue too simple for themselves: Continue reading “Trumpling People — Trump’s Ill-Conceived Travel Ban”

Immigrant Nation — The High Cost of Deporting Parents from America

(Note: if the video linked above gets deleted, you may search the Internet for the title: “Immigrant America: The High Cost of Deporting Parents”)

This is what the casualties of political expediency look like. Using demagogy, politicians get themselves elected into their cushy jobs where they get rich quick from bribes. Moronic ICE agents act like they have no brains at all, wreaking havoc in our society just to meet their insane quota. Families are torn apart, valuable community members torn away, lives long in the building destroyed. We taxpayers get to pay BILLIONS every year for our jacked-up deportation rate (for example $5 billion in 2010) in direct deportation costs alone (some $12,500 per deported person) and easily 5 times more in mopping up the aftermath through welfare, housing assistance, and Medicaid paid to formerly self-sufficient working families whose bread-winners have been deported. An estimated 150,000 children with citizenship lose a parent to deportation each year. How damaged will they grow up? Damage is done not only to the deported but also to their families and communities. Continue reading “Immigrant Nation — The High Cost of Deporting Parents from America”

Breaking News: Manning, Snowden, Assange, and Obama

Maybe you just heard? Obama finally acceded to so many of us pleading and finally commuted the whopping 35 year sentence (more than most murderers and rapists get) of Chelsea Manning, one of our nation’s greatest whistleblowers. Manning is the one who allowed us to learn of the mistreatment of unlawfully detained people and the callous murdering of civilians (including reporters and good Samaritans) which parts of our military committed in Irak and elsewhere. These are things we should know about, shouldn’t we? Continue reading “Breaking News: Manning, Snowden, Assange, and Obama”

A Last Ditch Effort Regarding Edward Snowden

To many people, whistleblowers are heroes who alert us to wrongdoings in high places where all too often a lack of accountability reigns.

The probably most well known case is that of Edward Snowden who gave up a beautiful life in Hawaii to serve his country and his people by letting us know that the NSA was unconstitutionally spying on us all, and who has had to take refuge in Russia of all places — the heartland of the former Soviet Union which the big shots and press in the West always condemned for spying on its citizens and retaliating against whistleblowers and having no constitutional protections for its citizens!

Will he soon be killed? Continue reading “A Last Ditch Effort Regarding Edward Snowden”
