Equal opportunity is foundational for the life, evolution, and soul of a free society:
The poorest in our communities should have equal access (as do the affluent) to quality healthcare, an education, including college, and fair due process under the law.
But, we all know no one ever listens to folks like you, or me, or Bernie...
John? Hillary? Donald? Marco? Ted? Anyone?

Don’t destroy First Amendment free speech by forbidding ideas, protest those ideas if you like but don't silence belief:
Donald Trump and the people in his audience have an inviolate right to ideas, ideals, belief...
The fight, the opposing interaction, the battlefield and the dynamic of ideas, ideals, and belief is democracy.

A carbuncle is a roiled mass of skin or a beautiful gem. The incredible gem is pictured in the logo below and at the bottom of the short story section...
Kevin O'Kendley is the owner of Carbuncle Moon, and the author of all original material -- cartoons, blogs, shorts, essays, articles -- on the website (there has been a very limited editorial input in some of my work). All quoted sources are noted. I am responsible for all posts. The only blogs not time-dated are those advertising nonprofits. All nonprofits are vetted, investigated, though after the summer of 2018 my vetting has lapsed: (6/1/21).
