Separation of Church and State is a Moral Imperative
Why would anyone trust a government that is fascist, racist and white supremacist? Then permit them seal a border with a wall.
An Awful Demonstration of Cruelty, Timidity, and Aversion to Change. Normal indicators suggest that Criminal Justice Reform (CJR) is not among priorities even on the Trump administration’s D- list. One might rightly conclude that the time and money expended so far, is either to appease the system’s critics or foot-drag the issue to 2020. Some […]
Well there goes Ohio lawmakers again. I am convinced that the time is near for mental health evaluations to be a factor in qualifying for candidate status. Possibly an internship requirement too. Okay, well anything that would help them understand the limits of their jobs. Savings would be time, taxpayers dollars, and most of all […]

I Used to Like Joy Reid By Leyland A. King, MS. April 29, 2018 (C) First came the whispered rumors about statements, supposedly on their way to haunt and destroy Ms. Joy Reid and her professional standing.

It’s their turn to be piñata of the day, because there were more decent customers than others, in the coffeehouse, and a woman was adroit enough to use the most feared weapon in America -a cellphone.

Everyone has his version of the truth but seldom share it. Whether it’s the taste, the smell or whatever, the ugly thing can help you lose friends and create bitter enemies. I wonder if it’s because once acknowledged, the truth will not leave until you do or stop doing, a particular wrong. Our criminal justice […]
By Leyland A. King September 30, 2017 After centuries of arduous work to give me freedom by saving me, I beg of you, please stop. Stop! The fact is, that when there is any rescuing done at all, the beneficiary is only you. For centuries! Heavenly inspired you were, to rescue my body from the […]

By under the circumstances, I mean their determined efforts to get to the truth of various, potentially criminal matters affecting the Trump Administration, only to be stymied by […]
Citizens elect their representative government. They authorize officials to execute, commute, grant clemency among other perceived roles. Capital Punishment is unlawful.
The criminal justice system is corrupt, has failed citizens and cannot be reformed.

By Leyland A. King Monday, July 30, 2016 Nothing impeded traffic-flow on I-4 East bound just after sunset, that late summer’s Friday. Irving Welles, age twenty-four, college grad, was headed home after work, thinking ordinary thoughts in the midst of routine driving. His family was awaiting his arrival for dinner. Had there been a traffic […]
