Before coffee rant

A question that comes to mind regarding jobs is where are they. I remember being told early 2001 that tax cuts would create jobs. Where are they? I remember being told in 2008 that bailing out the multinational financial institutions in the U.S. would stop job loss and allow small business creation to continue. We have increased job loss and slowed growth in small business because of banks not lending. We have cash rich companies not hiring in hopes of getting more cuts from their GOP advocates.

It is time for President Obama to step up his game. We need direct from government loans to small business creators bypassing financial institutions. We need those who desire to be ethical corporate citizens to create jobs for the people. Corporations posting profit by bottom lining employees and then complaining about unemployment taxes we do not need. We now have an opportunity to change business in America. If our government will come to work with those who desire to be ethical corporate citizens the we can once again have a viable economy.

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.

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.
