Cut the crap

It is crazy how progressives are spinning in the spin cycle of the GOP wash of Hilary Rosen's comments about Ann Romney's lack of W-2 history. It is easy to see why the Dems did nothing with their 2006 - 2010 majority in Congress. The entire lot of Progressives need to grow a pair.

When will Progressives stop running from truths? The truth is if Mitt is depending on his wife to know what is important to American women he may miss a few things. Ann Romney is a stay at home mother. She is not aware of making a choice between medicine for child or gas money to get to work. She is not aware of missing school events because she can not afford to miss an hour of W-2. She is not aware of eating fast food because cooking after working long hours is not in the cards.

I am not knocking stay at home mothers. I am pointing out the fact that in America most families have two paychecks and when there is one paycheck in a household it is usually co Ming from a woman. Ann Romney is a blessed woman when her life is seen against the backdrop of the lives of most American women. I find it hard to imagine her family did not have any servants to assist with child rearing. Any family that thinks to add a car elevator to their beach house must have a servant. Do I hate wealthy people? No. It is just factual that the super wealthy do not face the same hurdles as most Americans.

Progressive Dems either grow a pair or buy a pair. I am wearing my big woman
panties as I type this blog posting. I a a big woman. Stop allowing GOP to spin facts. Ann Romney and her husband are not part of the 99%. They have issues but food, shelter, and clothing are not pressing issues for them. It is not class warfare it is reality. I applaud Hilary Rosen for pointing out the obvious to the people who refuse to acknowledge the obvious. As a working mother I would love more time at home but the children understand. Maybe liberal media will understand soon.


  1. Absolutely true!

    If Romney didn't want his family involved, then he shouldn't point them out as his advisers.

    There is no such thing as Liberal Media. MSNBC comes closest, Thom Hartman show, but where is it on national media??

    Rich people, especially those who grew up rich, are way out of touch with the 98% of us who aren't that lucky. Unfortunately, we haven't come together to get them out of running our country (into the ground).

  2. Do you know how you can tell Ann Romney is so "in touch" with regular people? Because her HORSE has it's own doctor, it's own chiropractor, and it's own masseuse. That's how Ann knows what it's like to have to choose between paying the rent and taking your child to the dentist.

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.

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.
