Alienation

This whole “branding” thing just isn’t working for my blog. For one thing, I don’t post often enough.

Another horrific story of a family destroyed by abuses of power in the government... When we talk about the need for court reform, these are the families, the human lives, we are talking about... these are the innocent children who have been wrongly stolen from their families..this is not justice!
