Is IT for REAL?


The quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness: to uphold justice of a cause

Rightfulness or lawfulness, as of a claim or title; justness of grounds or reason: to complain with justice

The moral principle determining the just conduct

Conformity to this principle, as manifested in conduct; just conduct, dealing, or treatment

The administering of deserved punishment or reward

The maintenance or administration of what is just by law, as by judicial or other proceedings: a court of justice

Judgment of person or causes by judicial process: to administer justice in a community

A judicial officer; a judge of magistrate

(initial capital letter) also called Justice Department. The Department of Justice

Now here’s the thing about that word, say it out loud…JUSTICE. Can you see that it is a word of bias depending on who uses it and for what purposes…you, them or me, your cause, my cause or their cause all for the outcome that they, you or I deem just. WOW that is weird, now say that word again only this time say it syllable by syllable and not too fast. Funny it sounds sorta like

JUST US (who is us?)

Well my dear Internets what is The answer? Come on you know you love it when I make you explore

Edit for Poetic Justice as requested by my dear internet Margaret aka Digital Gran, in Wales (that’s this whole other country Jenni)

Good point, poetic justice where in virtue is rewarded or vice is punished, but therein lies the problem... what is virtue and what is vice, what is reward and punishment as seen through your eyes, their eyes, or mine?

Love that word JUSTICE! It's a big part of the reason I went to law school!

Oh, and there's also David Justice. Whom I liked until I heard that he likes to beat his girlfriends!!

On General Hospital there was a character name Justus, he was quite cute.

The Big Justice In The Sky is the one I try to listen to, to stay out of trouble. :)

Now I will forever think of justice as a selfish word. Thanks for always making me think Paige.

I fear I must take an unpopular stance on this question... Because I feel that Justice, like Truth, is never a sure thing.

Unpopular, because... An awful lot of people believe, that they DO have THE Truth.

You commented in my blog; "I'm glad you didn't mention names "out loud" and would mention to others that they should not as well...on accounta the rumor of reporting those in an anti position...conspiracy theory or not please err on the side of caution"

NO! We can NOT be afraid to say things! While we still have Freedom of Speech, we must use it! If we are afraid to use it responsibly, then we are already enslaved.

And I did mention names "out loud." B.O. is what I always call him! Those are his initials. I even left out the H.!!!

Does the Democratic party really expect sweetness, when they called the last president, "the Bush"? Among other things.

Speak! Responsibly! Don't just run off at the mouth, of course. But dig for info. And speak out. And tell your Congress Critters, what you want them to do. Some of them, even reply! Honest!

Still thinking about it, but where's Poetic Justice?

Who does the judging n who writes the rules is what's the prob-

If it were up to Just Me, All the cruelty would be punished- n inconsiderate idiots would be inconvenienced!

I've got some lawyer relatives- n they are not always truthful (surprize) to do their job-
