Too poop to post much

I promise to have a more lengthy and blistering blog tomorrow. Today, I do not posses the faculties to deliver such a blog. Whatever, kooties my son had over the weekend are now thriving in me. However, so is the life of a mom. In addition, being a daughter I could not rest as planned for I had promised my elderly stepfather I would install blinds at his home. I would have come out better hiring someone. Having said all of the above here is my short posting for today.

Am I alone in noticing the hypocrisy in D.C. amongst the Republicans? Where was all of the outrage at Wikileaks founder, when Valerie Plame’s identity was leaked? Her outing at the start of our wars did more to hurt the security of this country than Wikileaks. If our country is so intent on roasting those who tell secrets, then should not Cheney be on the spit?

Also, where are the fiscal responsible Republicans? The ones who recognize this tax deal is not good for the country. Let the fiscal responsible people throw their hands up. Please. Really, throw your hands up the next time you are on the floor of Congress.

Ok. I am about to get my son, check on stepfather, and then roll up in covers until morning.

Thanks for your time and reading of my blog.

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.
