Showdown in America

How hot it is in Mississippi. Today as I discussed the showdown in DC, I thought what a government shutdown would mean to me. If a storm of Katrina's magnitude was to hit Mississippi during a government shutdown, we would be f$!?:

It amazes me that games are being played in DC while Americans suffer. Social Security COLA decrease should not be on the table. Keeping campaign promise to not end Bush tax cuts should not be done at the expense of the nation. Our nation could not afford the tax cuts in 2001 and we dang well can not afford them now. It is time for us to end thus long term study in tax cuts. We now know failure is the result of tax cuts. Our nation was stronger when we had strong unions and higher taxes.

Turn off CNN and pickup the phone. Call your congressperson.

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.
