Standing on tax cuts

I shall have more to say later today. I am reviewing document on health care reform. I am thankful for those in Congress taking a stance in a seemingly no win battle. It is my hope that the American public understand the reason for their opposition to the tax cut compromise. Even though the compromise would extend UI it also forces us to continue borrowing money.

We must stop borrowing money if we are to get out of this hole we have dug for ourselves over the last 9 years. We must face reality which states we must pay off our creditors now.

Contact your Congress person today to let them know how you feel about their position. The "tomorrow" has become today and today we must pay.

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.

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

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.
