Quick AM thought

If you follow me on Twitter(@amsmadwoman ) or FB(Libby Middleson) then you know I have been active away from my blog. I am working on a guide for voters in Mississippi. However this morning as I dressed I had the opportunity to listen to corporate owned MSM (HLN) discuss the events in Oakland.

Hold your hats for the spin: the police are victims of the protestors. WTL?!!??! I too have heard stories of the police being hit by rocks in Oakland. However I was not in Oakland to confirm. I can not confirm if rocks were thrown or if the person(s) throwing objects were protestors or undercovers.

The spin by MSM is outrages. It shows who owns what in America. There is a continued move to discredit the movement. The police rep on the show claimed the protestors had no respect for law forcing the hands of the police byte news person claimed the protest should not be overnight. I guess neither of them have been impacted by the 8 yrs of bad policy during the Bush administration. I guess the continuation of those policies under Obama has left their lives rosey. Many Americans have not been so lucky. Hence the reason we occupy.

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.
