Cutting my life

This morning I prepare to take my parents to the VA in Jackson. I shall miss a full day's pay to do so. However, I am thankful that I am not having to drive 4 hours to get to them to then drive them to the VA.

Yet, in the midst of my thanks , I think how cuts to programs for veterans cause me to return home. Our government is making cuts to programs that actually help working class families. My missing a day of work is the same as a parent having to stay home because no childcare facilities available.

We must call on Congress to make cuts that matter and to allow the Bush tax cuts to expire.

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.
