in one sentence, what is wrong with the world today.

a women who was arrested for her participation in the coup attempt
on Jan. 6, has asked a judge in her case to allow her to take
a vacation in Mexico....

ok, we have a women who attempt to overthrow the government and is asking
to take a vacation to Mexico... now had a black person done this,
the GOP would have had a collective mental breakdown protesting this...
but because it is a white person, yah, sure take a vacation after committing
multiple crimes against the United States of America... she has been charged
with a couple of different crimes with, possibly more to come...
and yet she wants and expects to be able to go on vacation to Mexico...

and I am guessing that the Judge will even allow this... hay, you know
a white person trying to overthrow the government is clearly less of a danger
then a black person suspected of passing a counterfeit $20 bill......
that is a recent historical event.. see if you can identify it....

and yet, people claim there is no such thing as "White Privilege"

and here is a perfect case showing us "white privilege" in action....

and no wonder this country is in crisis.... we have a massive double
standard problem which is creating a situation which has been called,
"inauthentic"..... we treat similar situations we vastly different responses
depending on how much money a person has, or the color of their skin...

oh, justice clearly is no longer blind, but quite aware of the person in
the docket being of the right race or the right color or having the right
amount of money or the right title....see IQ45 1st impeachment
trial where he was found innocent because of his title, and not because
of his actions.. which were impeachable.........and of this time in which he is quite
guilty of his crimes against America.. trying to overthrow the country political
system from a democracy to a dictatorship... and he will escape any penalties
for his actions because he is white and wealthy and a prior president...
using his privileges of race, wealth and titles to escape punishment.....

justice is no longer blind but also no longer works in America.....

among our many failures is the failure to hold people to justice, to
accountability and responsibility for their actions... justice has failed,
no longer functions, and in doing so, America has failed....

if we hold one group of people accountable for their actions and fail to do
so with another group, then we no longer have a judicial system, we no longer
have a system that deals with justice... it is simply an ad hoc, hit or miss
system of individuals practicing justice as they see fit...with a eye
on the privileges of wealth, titles, race of the accused....and that isn't justice...

Peter is doing his wittle part to further divide America, unbeknownst to him, which's exactly what TPTB want.

Keep it coming, let's hear more about how wacist white people are. :lol:

Or about how a 3rd of Americans are just a bunch of backwater, inbred, tumbleweed pieces of shit. 8)

K: it is nice to see you consistently missing the point.....at least I can hold on to
this as a constant in the universe....

I am talking about justice and the complete loss of justice in America because
justice takes into account such things as color, race, wealth and titles.....

whereas for justice to be "JUSTICE" it must be blind to the parties in
any given action.... "JUSTICE" to be justice must be engaged with equal
rights and actions to everyone equally regardless of those factors such
as color, race, wealth or titles...

and in today's America justice is about the wealth and status or fame or
the title of a person, and not about the equal application of the law
to everyone...... I used white privilege as an example because it is so
obvious to be evident so even a blind person can see the justice system
being unjust and unequal to people based upon their wealth, title, race, color,
or title....

justice isn't being applied equally to everyone and thus isn't justice...
it is something else, but it ain't justice....

and that is my point........ justice to be justice must be equal and applied
equally to everyone regardless of who they are and how much wealth or power
or titles they have.....or it is no longer justice.....

Some people think that as long as there is ongoing debate about a given matter that there is no truth of it.
You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.


Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

The road is bumpy and I would rather pave it than put on shoes.
