    Injustice is truly awful.

    One part of our history is the fact that we repealed the death sentence. How many innocents were killed by the state??? And injustice is everywhere!!!!

    (from Wonkette.com) It has not been a banner

    year for our armed public servants from the City of New York. When we last left them, they were executing a two-pronged strategy to protest Mayor Bill de Blasio’s alleged anti-cop rhetoric, first hijacking the funeral of two murdered cops, then refusing to do their jobs. What...

    Injustice & Bigotry

    Many of us hate injustice and bigotry.  The sad part; this part is involved in our everyday life.  There will always be injustice somehow.

    I Am Not Gay-But If I Were, What's It To Ya?!

    We've all heard the rhetoric. The bottom line is, it's none of your damned business if I am or not. Gay people are NOT out to turn the world GAY, they just want to live in harmony with everyone else. How would YOU like it, if the MAJORITY of people WERE gay, and we had laws in...

    This Kind Of Ignorance Just Burns Me Up~

      Lately on EP my friends and I have fallen victim to small minds, warped senses of reality and the brand of vintage intolerance, hatred and total ignorance that gets people hurt and killed and has for centuries. This is to be expected because the "old path" that we have chosen...

    Prejudice + Power = Injustice

    Prejudice and Power are a very scary mixture. When they are mixed the result is invariable injustice. My partner and I are very much in love. We make each other very happy. We support and care for each other. We got together when I reached out to help a depressed person like...

    Which Is Why:

    I speak to others with sensitivity, and am careful in the words I choose. There may be personal life choices that I do not agree with or find healthy, but I will never call anyone a curse word or imply that their lives do not have value as all living beings have value and should...

    Every closet racists tries to justify their

    I hate bigotry so much

    that a difference in opinion about women's or lgbt rights or something that sounds racist to me could end a friend ship. Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing the right thing or if by not tolerating their opinion, I'm the one who's the real bigot.

    My Heart Breaks For Trayvon Martin And His Family
