Welcome to the views of a real American liberal.
This blog features the random rantings of a Mississippi mad woman. Rush Limbaugh is the inspiration for this blog. If an overweight, fake far-right, and cigar smoking raving idiot can have a voice then so can an overweight, real far-left, and Wal-mart shopping Mississippi mad woman.
Occupy until all can no longer deny the imbalance on this planet. We are better than what we have become. Occupy.

Am I still on Earth?
Am I alone in wondering why Mitt is even running for office? He stated he is not worried about the very poor for they have safety nets. Is he really so obtuse that he is not aware of the ALEC legislation being passed in statehouses to remove the safety nets. Mitt is not living in my world for sure. I am wondering what world he is in these days? Mitt even threw rich people under the bus. He stated what 99% of Americans know, the rich are fine.
We must wake up. We can no longer afford to sleep. It is time to get corporations out of our government.
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.
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.
