Regrouping MS Tag

I had originally written a most eloquent piece on the tag issue in Mississippi. After it was dumped by my BlogPress app, I find myself to be less eloquent. So here in plain speech are my thoughts.

The governor of Mississippi is only deluding himself if he thinks he will be president of the United States. A majority of Americans are over the racial hate that is still virulent in Mississippi. At a time when he could show the nation that he has moved beyond his Mississippi "nigga this and nigga that" Delta origins, he has chosen to embrace continued racial strife.

The one good thing out of this entire tag mess is the coming together of all Mississippians, save the governor and Sons of the Confederacy, to denounce plans to honor the founder of the KKK.

I had avoided writing on the tag issue in Mississippi for we have larger issues. The current budgets in DC will allow money to continue to be siphoned from the pockets of the poor and the working poor by the wealthy. It is my hope that as Mississippians come together to denounce the tag they stay together to force DC to stop oppressing the poor and the working poor to save the wealthy.

What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
