Pure BS

I wrote this long hand while my phone charged. I was watching primary returns on MSNBC.

My phone is charging, however; I could not wait to write my thoughts about GOP campaign rhetoric, bullshit. I could not believe the stuff I heard during the primary returns tonight.

In spite of the earthquake that shook our nation's capitol last year, Santourm is still pushing fracking. Santorum has beaten a war drum for war with Iran while surrounded by his military aged children. What nerve?
However Ryan had more nerve. Paul Ryan claimed President Obama could not run on his record as president. I say President Obama could and should run on his term as president. The President will be able to highlight why it is important to elect Democrats with a spine, the constants obstruction by the GOP for any policy to benefit American people, and mostly how the GOP refused to be part of the solution. The President will be able to highlight just how far the GOP had to go in attempts to make his first term a failure. The GOP has even fought against ACA which is basically a GOP plan. Crazy. Pure crazy.
Yet the best line of the night was Mitt Romney saying the President was out of touch. Really Mitt? One would think Mitt, car elevator, Romney would not say anything about being out of touch.

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.
