Govt' Healthcare Makes Lazy Populace

During my busy day of getting a business off the ground, I took time to talk with a buddy about life in general. During the course of discussions she read to me an article from townhall.com about "Obamacare" creating a group of lazy people. My first response was WTL???!!!??? Who wrote this Regan Era kool-aid waste of space piece of hubris? What in the name of Ronald Regan big biz laissez-faire dumb down of American is the meaning for this writing?

This article is nothing more than a throw back to the Regan era of "Cadillac driving Black welfare queens". Obviously the writer has not had to live on any government assistance in his lifetime.

After becoming ill in 2003, I faced a major change to my financial lifestyle and a change in my thought patterns about lazy people on government assistance. It is impossible to enjoy 3 and 4 star hotels and restaurants while receiving government assistance. The amount of assistance given to families is below poverty level. I can not see anyone in his/her right mind desiring to stay on government assistance in order to have health insurance.

Please do read the article http://townhall.com/columnists/AustinHill/2011/01/23/could_obamacare_kill_the_american_work_ethic

If I am off mark, please let me know. I am always open to learning. I just can not see anyone not working in order to have govt' health insurance.

Maybe I am all alone on this one.

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.
