Wake up America Part 4

Environmental, health, safety, and socioeconomic concerns associated with oil recovery from U.S. tar-sand deposits: State-of-knowledge

Remember to click the links at the bottom and the title link.

I know very well how tough times are in America. However, if I am not willing to sell my body to feed my family why would I sell my country? I am depending on my children and my friends' children being able to live off the land for generations to come. If we sell out now to various energery concerns that will only pollute our land then how can we expect our children's chlidren to be able to live off the land? We need solutions to energy demands but the tar sands are not the answer and building a pipeland across the pristine mid-west is not the answer for job creation.

I enjoy eating but polluting our fields and streams is not the way to create jobs. We need the "job creators" to go back to the drawing borad. Also, why is there no press coverage over the protests of the tar sands? Why is the protest not being televised by the "liberal media". The media is about as liberal as I am a super underwear model. Trust me, me in my undies is not pretty. Once again the coverage is coming from the UK on matters of importance to our nation, why?

We must wake up to what is being done in our nation. If we sleep on this matter our children will not be able provide for their children.

WakeUp

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.
