I give up

I did my best to not say anything about the mess in DC today. However, I see we are off to a crazy start. Who in his/her right mind repeal healthcare without having something better in place? Twitter was fast moving today as the insane move for power played out in our nations's capitol.

I felt so alone in a sea of intelligence. I would hear the occasional voices of others in the sea with me ( Moveon, Thinkprogressive, Donna Brazile and a few others) Something is amiss in DC when those who speak of job killing seek to kill access to healthcare by those without jobs.

My head hurts. I can only do so much stupidity per day; doctor's orders.

God bless this nation as we work with congressional rules designed to slow the passage and creation if legislation. God bless us as the powers that be seek to circumvent the balance of powers written into our constitution. God bless Congress the ability to read the constitution in bed tonight thereby saving precious work time in the House tomorrow.

God bless one and all

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.
