An open letter to Gov. Dannel Malloy

Credit:   host.madison.com

Gov. Malloy:

By now, you are well aware of the imprisoning of Jane Doe.  (Because of her being underage, this is not her actual name.)  You are also quite aware of her not being arrested for any crime. I do not like shouting from the rooftops for any controversy, but this is truly Orwellian.

I am not writing to you today because she is transgender.  I am writing to you because she is a human being.  Like everyone else in Connecticut, she has certain inalienable rights - rights which extend to the United States, and, by extension, the entire planet.

In my opinion, the following actions should be taken posthaste:

1.  Have a meeting with Department of Children and Families commissioner Joette Katz, during which she will be expected to provide an airtight defense.  If she fails to do so, tell her to hand in her resignation by day's end.  I understand that Ms. Katz has held some of the highest positions in the state, including a term on the state Supreme Court.  However, a high position carries with it high responsibility.  Those that shirk that responsibility deserve firing.

2.  Hold a press conference where the legislature will be called into special session in which this antiquated law will be rescinded.

3.  Release Jane Doe immediately.

Thank you.

ezs note: The general rule is the more you try to "fix" things, the more they get messed up.   If you haven't done so already, see a competent therapist, then get your life in order.  It doesn't matter whether your'e in an Australian rock band member or the former governor of New Jersey, (or anyone else) get help now!

ezs note:  Wow.  Mayor Cameron Hamilton, you are, undoubtedly, this year's Asshole of the Year.  I rest my case.

In memory of the 103+....

Credit:  blogspot.com

103 people.  103 human beings. Yesterday, they were alive.  Today, they are gone.  All from the brutality of merciless, savage, vermin.

In reality, though, the people who needlessly were murdered are but a small sliver of the total number.  Out of  230+ countries in the world, only fourteen even bother to keep track of the numbers!

As Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon would so eloquently put it, this is reprehensible.
