Apology Please

Unlike my previous drawn out fantasy filled post this one is short and real. President Obsma's latest action has futhered divided his base. This base that elected him us made up of democrats, idependents, real republicans, and people who saw this country getting off track early 2001. In short Presudent Obama's base is huge. He was elected by a huge majority which was a mandate of how off base the last administration was for this country.

His base has begun infighting for he has yet to show that he is willing to fight for the change he proposes. When the wiff of an altercation hits the air he immediately seeks to find middle ground. By and large he was elected to fight. He was elected to fight the do nothing democracts elected in 2006. Yet he has done nothing much as have they( Harry obstruction Reid).

His base is fighting on the merits that rolling over is good or detrimental to the fiscal foundation of this nation. ( can you guess my stance?). My dearest associate spent a good portion of our conversation explaining to me how right and slick he was in the deal he worked out with the " turn the lights off" republicans. She even attempted to explain to me how the unemployed or more concerned with light bills than tax rates. I reminded her that I am unemployed, at the end of UI, single mother of one child, and have a child support order that is paid on a whim yet I am more concerned about the deficit.
Being unemployed is temporary yet our national debt if not checked now will extend beyond my time in the grave.
Not all Americans are as short sighted as the leaders we elect. Most of us endured much to reach our goals in life not having anything to smooth our paths. We are not afraid of a little pain to teach our goals. Unlike the prince and princess of Congress and the 10% of wealth holders, we are not afraid to suffer for our ideals. We do not need apologies. We need right action now to see us a thousand years from now better than we are now.

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.
