6 PM CST 9/8/11 Be There a Call to action

We the people need to watch the President's speech. We need to call every media outlet to express our views the next morning. We need to call our members of Congress to ask why they were not there or how do they plan to stand with the President to get this country on track? President Obama has taught to me, a bellicose type human, the art of compromise. He has made every attempt to be peaceful in the face of blind hatred, disrespect, and obstruction. We need to support him tomorrow for Congress is not. Congress is wrapped snug in the pocket of the Koch brothers and friends.

Our government is by the people, for the people and of the people. We must stop being inactive critics and become active problem solvers. It is up to us for our Congress is not doing it. The have abdicated their jobs to 12 people. Really?!!

It is a shame the GOP felt a presidential debate was more important than hearing what the President has to say. It is pure hypocrisy for the GOP has been demanding for months that the President presents a plan. Why must the President present a plan when we have sent them to Washington to represent our plan for us? What has the GOP done in regards to creating jobs? Tax cuts? We have had tax cuts since 2001 but have lost more jobs since then.

We need to let Congress know that we vote not corporations. We need to let Congress know we are tired and the skillet has become too hot to handle. We need to be active. The time is now. So please pass this to your buddies; this call to action. We must make our voices heard via the MSM. We can start with Twitter and end with Fox News. Let's do this.

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.
