I have a general rule online: I do my best not to curse. Because I’ve worked as a web content and media marketing employee, I believe my “public” life might called into question for future employment opportunities. I don’t want to lose a job because I curse like a sailor off-the-clock. But, after hearing the … Continue reading ROE V WADE: A Personal Rant
Thank you to everyone who donated money to my friends. I'll apologize now if I repost it a few times - they really are in a horrific situation that may drag out a long time in court. I want to say - The generosity you all have shown warmed my cynical, black heart. You've also … Continue reading A quick thank you…
The Smiths #SmithPartyOf3 I'm not one to ask for money. But, this isn't for - or about - me. My best friend, my hetero-lifemate, and adopted sister, her darling husband who dotes on her, and my nephew, need help. I know everyone is strapped for cash. But please donate. And please share the GoFundMe fundraiser. … Continue reading Please…help…

However, I am a little more familiar with the law than the average person. (And, no, I don’t mean I’ve been … Continue reading The State of New Jersey’s Recreational Pot Changes
George Floyd was murdered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25, 2020.
Black Lives Matter.
If there’s one thing that I understand completely, it’s that I have white privilege.
I’m committed to being a better ally.

Here are a few snapshots of my recent thoughts.
At the end of this post, I’ve included a long list of resources, ways you can help, ways you can educate yourself and others, and other sources that I’ve found helpful.
Thanks for reading.

I’m having trouble concentrating. I’m so angry about so many things. I’m personally not brave enough to join any of the Black Lives Matter protests, but I am committed to listening. I’ve been carefully observing my…

It’s all over the news, and I feel I have to comment on it. I’m a liberal. On the “Radical Scale” (that I just made up), I’m somewhere between “Elizabeth Warren” & “Bernie Sanders.” That means I have all sorts of crazy ideas: Women are people; full-fledged, unique individuals who deserve to define their own … Continue reading Thoughts on Trump’s “Impeachment”
“Pro-Life” must mean pro-ALL-life. Not just fetal life. Women’s lives. Children’s lives. Prisoners’ lives. ALL LIVES.
Earlier this week, a 16-year-old boy from Guatemala died after being apprehended at the U.S. Border. He is the fifth migrant child since December to die after being apprehended at the U.S. border.
The boy was “found unresponsive” during a routine welfare check Monday morning at Weslaco Station, the facility where he was being held. The boy was taken into custody after crossing the U.S. border in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley on May 13 and was due to be moved into custody of the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement, which oversees care of unaccompanied or separated migrant children after they are initially processed by immigration authorities.

If & when I figure out how to contact Supreme Court justices to share our objections, – not that it’ll do a whole heckuva lotta good – I’ll let you all know. 😥
Renting a moving truck from U-Haul to go from Alabama to Connecticut will cost somewhere between $600 to $800, depending on the size truck you need. Why did I look this information up? Because, if you’re in Alabama, you need to get out. As a public service, I’m giving you an idea on the cost.
Why did I pick Connecticut? Because some state officials in Connecticut have offered safe haven to Alabamians who wish to escape their state’s new restrictive abortion laws. Though the law isn’t actually legal yet despite the governor signing it, Alabama seeks to become the most restrictive state in regards to abortion. Connecticut, which has codified abortion, is the most progressive on the subject. Alabama wants to ban abortion entirely, even in the case of rape and incest. If this law becomes an actual law, a woman in Alabama impregnated from rape could face a stiffer…
