Are We Alive

I have worked very hard this week. The pain in my body reminds me that I am alive. Yet as I work to motivate people in Mississippi to come together to make a plan for the progressives in the state, I wonder if our cause is a lost one. I wonder what does it take to keep the energy alive.

The people in Wisconsin have been ordered home by a judge. The governor of Wisconsin plans to arrest the Dems who fled the state. Ohio legislature has passed legislation to nullify unions. The Republicans in Mississippi run for public office unchallenged. I however am having a very hard time getting people in Mississippi to host a planning party.

I wonder if I am alone in feeling a sense if urgency? If I am alone then why? Am I the only one not willing to just rollover and take what the Tea Party lead GOP is handing out. When do we come alive?

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.
