This is yet another reason why justice in America continues to come out perverted for the weak and the poor and the helpless .. despite some 50 or 60 women coming forward.

Justice in America is supposed to be blind .. but it's not. Sadly, justice in America is for sale .. to the highest bidder.

» Why Would Alan Dershowitz Ever Contemplate the Notion that Statutory Rape is an Outdated Concept?

Especially after Dershowitz publicly argued that statutory rape is an "outdated concept" (LA Times, 7 May 1997).

Alan Dershowitz argues that statutory rape is an outdated concept (LA Times, 7 May 1997)

Now there's an eyebrow-raising title if ever I saw one. Why would he ever do something like that?

Have you ever heard someone argue that statutory rape was an outdated concept? I certainly havent.

I wonder if Shaun has any idea why Alan might argue such a thing.

Shaun Attwood reads statement of Virginia Roberts Giuffre saying that she had sexual intercourse with Dershowitz (as a minor) at least six times (7 Sept 2019)

When did it become outdated, Alan? What year pray tell?

Whatever precipitated such an idea? Does David Boies share your startling opinion?

This page originated here .. in an entry titled » The 1619 Project » Marking the 400-Year Anniversary of Enslavement and Oppression Arriving in America - Page Two (14 August 2019).

It is off-topic here, but speaking of Marianne Williamson ..

Presidential candidate Marianne Williamson says we need a moral awakening (31 Jam 2019)

.. the ladies of The View treated Alan Dershowitz ...

Dershowitz and Epstein at Harvard in 2004.

.. who happens to be a personal friend of, and enthusiastic advocate for, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein ..

Shaun Attwood reads aloud the statement of Virginia Roberts Giuffre saying that Dershowitz hung out with Epstein frequently (7 Sept 2019)

.. better than they treated Marianne Williamson.

Much better.

» The United States Does Not Torture

Speaking of stepping away from groups of people who are known to embrace racist sentiments .. check out this Vice News interview with Joe Walsh (57).

Former Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh tells Vice News that the Republican party is not a racist bigoted cruel party (30 Aug 2019).

This is one of the most fascinating political interviews I have ever seen .. for a number of reasons.

Which is why I am mentioning it here .. in this theme where I have already referenced Joe Walsh and some of the things he has said.

He attended the University of Chicago .. so he is no dummy. He is no hick.

» The 400-Year Anniversary of Slavery in America

I bet that Nikole Hannah-Jones knows what I am talking about.

Nikole Hannah-Jones leads the 1619 Project (18 August 2019)

She leads The 1619 Project (published 14 August 2019), which marks the 400-year anniversary of slavery in America.

The 1619 Project by Nikole Hannah-Jones (14 August 2019)

I wonder what Kanye thinks of Nikole's project.

» Eddie Glaude Speaks Bluntly on Racism in America

One of the things that made me feel happy .. was this statement made by Eddie Glaude. He is a professor of African American Studies at Princeton.

The mere fact that a a black man is speaking aloud these words on television .. this a big deal.

Eddie Glaude says America likes to tell itself myths and fables about our inherent goodness in order to hide our dark secrets so we can maintain a willful ignorance that protects our innocence. (7 Aug 2019)

You almost can't believe what your ears are hearing. In the grand scheme of things, this is a big deal.

» Feeling Habakkuk and his Complaint

There is much ugliness there. So much of it that I could feel Habakkuk when he wrote to God. (Rad paraphrase.)

"Why are you making see all this nasty shit? .. where nasty fuckheads trick-fuck good people and then get away with it.

"This shit has been going on for so long now, and it shows no signs of abating any time soon."

"Justice is a joke .. a bad joke. How are you tolerating this?"

It is just a sad state of affairs that our government has become.

This is heartbreaking. Such a little girl.

» Analyzing Circumstances and Events in the World Through My Own Custom Existential Lens

It probably means nothing to anybody but me .. but, here in my existential world .. which I have researched and studied the proven values and morals that a sentient human being will want and need to bring along with him ..

Each of us must design our own moral code by which to live say the existentialists

.. so he can lie down comfortably on his deathbed without feeling the sting of regret.

I wanted to focus on what was actually important, and avoid the things that are not.

In order to assemble such an organized structure .. I began with the basics. I am talking about the fundamental, rudimentary aspects for building yourself a life that is actually worth a fuck.

» I Could Feel the Boss Working that Racist Angle

I remember thinking, "Ooh, I can feel him working that racist angle. This can't be a good thing for racists."

Ronald Reagan recorded talking to Nixon using a racial slur to refer to Africans as 'monkeys' (National Archives, Oct 1971, posted 31 July 2019)

I wonder what Reagan thinks of that. I can almost hear the weeping and gnashing of teeth now.

» Whatever has Happened to the Republican Moral Compass Under Trump?

Coffee Joe also called out the Republicans for repeatedly lacking the moral courage to stand up to Trump's blatant and overt racism.

President Trump identifies with and defends hate groups in America

He took the side of a black man and publicly called out Trump in Elijah's defense. This made me think of what Marshall did here.

This is where you separate the men from the boys. This is where you separate those with a moral backbone from the moral invertebrates .. from those who shrink back in fear at the idea of confronting Trump's nakedly racist rhetoric.

» There is a Reason Why They're Called » Hate Crimes

I bet that Beto knows exactly what I am talking about here.

Beto O'Rourke says that Trump is actively promoting the racism that has led to the deaths in El Paso (4 Aug 2019)

This is why I included an image-link to this video where Coffee Joe poses the question » "Whose side are you on?" .. way back on Page One here.

I clearly remember the Way that the Boss was working that racist angle.
