Injustice, n. A burden which of all those that we load upon others and carry ourselves is lightest in the hands and heaviest upon the back.

doug,

either v do something in justice or v do injustice. i hate the judges who sit on those benches and dont think the way i do. It just-is not so right to me.

For all you know the jury team goes into that room and just flips a coin 13 times. no wonder in a trial someone gets unlucky always.

thanx for dropping by my blog. its pretty cool what you got going here..

A point of view!

Samir, thanks for stopping by. And you're right, we have a phrase over here, "activist judge" which means a judge who rules against God's will and my interest. Injustice each time.

Sreekesh, exactly, all of them but mine.

Wow! I would hate to think someone just tossed a coin at one of my trials!

And because no one is allowed to talk about it...who would ever know!

I have been ask to do jury duty a few times and have always been allowed to not attend.

I was so relieved because I fear making the wrong decision concerning someone's life!

I know though I will probably have to take this responsibility sooner or later...god help me!

For example, it is an injustice that illegal aliens (all felons) come to the USA expecting the hard working citizens to pay for their education, healthcare, support, ... - INJUSTICE!

Very cool thing you have going here.

Doug said...

Morning Dew! I agree. I've never been sat on a jury, and I suspect it's because someone knew what would happen if I were.

Sure, Dog, or like people sitting around not doing much other than whining about people who want to work hard.

Molly, thanks for your kindness.

Nice!

Examples of injustice: 11/00 & 11/04.

Doug said...

Thanks, Sunil.

Sar, I should have seen that coming.

Folks, we've heard from the left and the right today. Tomorrow morning, I'll see if "Feeding Tube" is in Bierce's dictionary.

nice blog site! just like an online dictionary with a touch of sarcastic humor.

hi blog hopping via BE!

Doug said...

Yes, exactly, Arnie. Like a dictionary at your disposal only with sparse coverage, unalphabetized and smart-alecky. Then again, for all we know, Noah Webster may have been pulling our legs all this time. Thanks for commenting.
