GOP not aiding in the storms of American life

Thanks to my FB buddy Mary for pumping up my blog. Since she put it on blast with Crooks And Liars (, I decided to drive the 10 miles to town to update this blog using my laptop. Thanks Mary for the shout out.

Another motivator for my updating tonight after a long day at work is the title link. There seems to be a high cost for getting a clue that Cantor does not wish to pay. Must we suffer for his lack of knowledge? He is a victim of the same misinformation that plagues many in America.

A young man in his 20's said today he would not be able to retire until he was 90. I had to say something to him. 1. The amount of FICA taken out of a person's check does not equate to the amount that person receives in SSI payments. 2. Warren Buffett can not turn FICA into a small living in 50 years. 3. If he is able to work at 90 then give thanks that his body has not given into the trials of time. This young man is a victim of Faux News and the Wall Street bankers who are salivating over the opportunity to risk FICA on the market.

I also got a little more misinformation in my inbox tonight from the GOP.
The title of the email is misleading. We must contact Congress. They are still playing games.

e-Update: President Failing to Act on Job Creation

Senator Johanns e-Update

September 14, 2011

On the Senate floor this morning, I led a discussion with my colleagues urging President Obama to submit to Congress the pending trade agreements with South Korea, Panama and Colombia. Enacting these three agreements would open new markets to our producers and add a quarter-million jobs here at home, pumping billions in new revenue into our economy. For nearly two years, the President has signaled he would move these agreements forward, yet he has failed to submit them to Congress for action. I will continue to push for their arrival in Congress.

Also today I appeared on Fox Business to discuss the three bills I introduced last week that would ease regulatory burdens on our farms and small businesses. The regulatory overkill of this Administration has created too much uncertainty for our job creators and impaired their ability to expand and grow. My legislation to slow down the slew of federal regulations would free up much-needed capital and allow our job creators to start hiring again.

I would write more but I have spent all day working for Da Man and must now drive the 10 miles home. Well first I must stop at the Walmart to stimulate my local 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.

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.
