Welcome to the views of a real American liberal.
This blog features the random rantings of a Mississippi mad woman. Rush Limbaugh is the inspiration for this blog. If an overweight, fake far-right, and cigar smoking raving idiot can have a voice then so can an overweight, real far-left, and Wal-mart shopping Mississippi mad woman.
Occupy until all can no longer deny the imbalance on this planet. We are better than what we have become. Occupy.

I am back to rant and to rave about the state of our nation from a liberal view point. I shall have daily rants starting November 8th.
I do not claim to have the answers but I have do claim to have reason.
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.
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.
