Stimulus not working

The campaign rhetoric has died down... somewhat. There were many items that stood out in this mid-term election. The one that has my attention is how the stimulus package did not work.

How can the stimulus package work if it was not used to it's fullest? What sane person truly expects something to work when it is not used.

I found it to be thought provoking that those campaigning on the lack of merit to the stimulus package were the ones keeping the funds from being used. There is still a huge amount of money not spent.

It seems as if someone cried wolf at the expense of the American public. The whole truth should have been told and not just truths that benefited one person over another. However I can not blame a con artist for bring a con artist. I can only speak to those who swallowed the story hook, line, and sinker.

Until we the American public take it upon ourselves to gain full truths; we will continue to have underfunded good intentions in Washington.

The next time you hear what appears to be facts ask a few questions? How? Why? When? Where? Who? Ask questions of the answers you are given. Stop being surface dwellers on matters that are really life and death.

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

Work to do

I am typing a few quick thoughts today.  This thought is about White people being real.  When I returned to Mississippi in 2002, I had planned to only be here two years.  I didn't wish my kids to be in the oppressiveness of Mississippi too long.   I like other young Black people left this state before the ink was dry decades earlier.  When I returned in 2002, I was to learn of a silent change in the state, White folks waking-up. 

They are sadly still not the majority in 2017 but they are growing daily.  Trump has helped many White people face the mirror no longer able to deny the truth.  They are now facing the results of hate without the filter of Confederate glasses.  Mississippi is a wreck and holding on to a divisive symbol of hate, our flag.  Centuries of hate in the state has left the state destitute to the point even White people are leaving in large numbers.   Those now leaving are exporting hate to other states that have done well economically by ending policy of hate.

Na…
