Zoe's story about Duke and How Duke aka Grinch Stole Christmas

Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot,
But the Duke, who lived just north of Whoville, did not.
The Duke hated Christmas the whole Christmas season.
Oh, please don't ask why, no one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
It could be his head wasn't screwed on just right.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

You're a mean one, Mr. Duke.
You really are a heel.
You're as cuddly as a cactus,
You're as charming as an eel.
Mr. Duke!
You're a bad banana with a...greasy black peel!

You're a foul one, Mr. Duke.
You're a nasty, wasty skunk.
Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk.
Mr. Duke!
The three words that best describe you are as follows and I quote:

why is the so called Mother in jail?
real Mothers stay out of trouble so they can raise their flock themselves without child services taking over.
being held accountable for your actions is normal adult behavior.
And what % of kids want to hear from a women who took the term Mother so casually they only have the name Mother because they gave birth then abandoned the child?
What is hateful is you failing to show Motherly love in jail, when they did not care anything about the kid in the 1st place, or they would not have positioned themselves for a jail term.
Reality sucks when force fed....Wolf wolf?
Reality sucks when women who have done a terrible thing aren't able to at least attempt to make up for it with their children. I really don't see a problem with this, at least a woman has a chance to work at repairing her relationship with her child, has an impetus to make her jail time positive. Why punish the child further by having no access to their mother?

And if they can't do that, admittedly, they are nothing more than mere DNA donors and an incubator.

'Nuff said?

wrong on amendment 1
not 4 either, or 5, or 14th

as always you are full of chit.

using your lawyer blurring technique, it could be said abortion is illegal by the 14th amendment.

I have a constitution on my lap, and not anywhere in your references does child birth have a single word written.

You need to re-take the Bar Exam when someone watches you for cheating.

Check and see if there is listed anywhere in that document the word "stupid".

I will tell you that you will not find it, but I will also tell you that you have a Constitutionally protected fundamental right to remain stupid as well.

carry on.

Duke's Significant Other he married inside the prison walls!

(Loretta Lynn)

I`m in a women`s prison with bars all around

I caught my darlin` cheatin` thats when I shot him down

I caught him in a honky-tonk with a girl I used to know

The door to my cell is open wide and a voice cries out oh no

The judge says I`m guilty my sentence is to die

I know I`ve been forgiven but the price of love is high

The crowd outside is screamin` let that murderer die But above all their voices I can hear my mama cry

I`m sittin` here on death row and Lord I`ve lost my mind

For love I`ve killed my darlin` and for love I`ll lose my life

I can hear the warden coming From the clinging of his keys

But when they come to get me He`ll have to drag me off my knees

The door to my cell swings open It`s time for me to go

The priest is reading my last rights He says dying`s part of livin` ya know

And there`s a crowd outside screamin` let that murderer fry

But above all their voices You can hear my mama cry

Now they`ve strapped me in the chair And covered up my eyes

And the last voice I hear on Earth Is my mama`s cry

did you re-define liberty's definition as child birth now?

or did you mean the liberty of the child taken by the government?
