Do I really Own my Land

I am about to wax on one of my favorite subjects, corporate control of government. Please click on the title link for the background on my rant for today. As I was preparing this blog, I was notified that A. Weiner did send a pic of his penis to a young lady. God bless him. What a dumb move on his part. Enough of diversion news. I wish to discuss what is the purpose of my owning property if the government can just come in and take it to give to a corporation? What is the purpose of my working 12 to 18 hours a day in my young years to only be told when I am ready to retire some corporation wants my land? I keep thinking of Dudley Do Right and Nell. I see the robber baron corporations having taken over the fort that was built by the people for protection from robber barons.

I understand there is a time when government may for the good of the people need to build a road or something on private property. However, I do not understand why the government will take a person's property to give to a corporation that may or may not benefit the community. This issue has me so angry I could spit.

Since 2001, we have turned over our rights to corporations without any complaints. It is time for us to stand up and say we will not take it anymore. We do not need big money to take a stand. We just need to take a stand for our rights as one. We must come together, now.

It is simple. Pass the links in this blog around the net. I do not need to expound on how the abuse of eminent domain enslaves the population. I am just encouraging you to get-up and to join with others who are no longer asleep to this madness.

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.
