A wasting we will go 2011

I wondered how long before the investigations would begin. Wonder no more ( http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/issa-probes-obama-accomplishments/2011/01/13/id/382703?s=al ).


If anyone remembers the money and time wasted during the Clinton years on special investigation then my being upset is not surprising. I am a great number of things and the thing that tops the list is thrifty. Spending money unnecessarily is high on my list of upsets. Wasting time is the only thing that tops spending money unnecessarily.

Where was Rep Issa during the Bush/Cheney years? I continue to ask this question. He is seeking to investigate the Obama administration on suspicion of corruption. The no-bid contracts given to Haliburton ( http://www.halliburtonwatch.org/about_hal/gao_waxman_reports.html) should be under investigation. Health care in this country must be reformed. Aging baby boomers and the unemployed are about to swell the rolls of Medicaid and Medicare. We need to reform now to handle the increase. The banks and the automakers are now repaying the loans they got at the end of the Bush administration under the Democratic controlled Congress.

Do we really have time for politics? What did we get out of the investigation of Bill Clinton other than a tawdry novel? I have found better novels at books sales. We do not have the time nor money for these proposed investigations. We need every dollar we can find. Instead of cutting social programs that will enrich our nation; cut the idea of useless investigations.

Enough said.

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.
