Friendly Money

This year as budget cuts are bandied about in DC, there are some cuts not mentioned. The amount of money we spend each year to have friends. It is time we stop paying other countries to be friends with us.

Many in DC will tell to you how we must give money to these friends. If we do not the world will come to an end. I say before we cut education at home we must cut foreign aid.

The Egyptians are prepared to go without our aid. They wish to be self governing without our interference. The old political guard keeps missing this statement from the Egyptians.

Israel has a high GDP. It's citizens have healthcare and paid education at the university level. Given the human rights abuse against the Palestinian people we should underfund Israel before we underfund healthcare.

It is time that we move into the 21century. We are still caught up in yesteryear. (This week the budget was printed in massive numbers instead of being downloaded to a Kindle. ) The world is tired of Western colonization ( nation building). People are desiring self-rule instead of puppet governments.

I say give the people their desires. I am willing to take my chances in this Christian nation on the world being ok without American foreign aid design to foster friendship. Let's see if chaos becomes the order of the day without our aid. As we wait we can get an education and enjoy healthcare.

White Boys Whine

Quick  and dirty   Star Trek  Discovery  is everything  I  thought  it would  be.  It is my hope the White  boys  chill the fuck out .  There will be a White male captain .   The Black  woman  will be of a lowered  status.  White  boys  are you appeased ?
My personal  view fuck White  boys who had their dicks in a vise  over women  of color  at the helm of a fictional  space vessel.  I shall watch  Star Trek  Discovery .  I shall pay the fee to CBS Access  with joy. If you wanted to watch OITNB you paid  Netflix . Overall  I look  forward  to the day a fictional  show  that features  women  of color  in prominent  positions  doesn't  freak out White males.  They were  so freaked  out  they compared  The Orville  to Star Trek  Discovery .  Guys chill out ,  future  happens .

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.

Na…
