Why I love blogging. 4/19/2012

I love blogging for I am free to be me. My being me means I am free to ask anyone I desire via my blog to support any cause I desire. My cause is to stop Tea Party exploitation of Americans and our natural resources. The best way to stop Tea Party from giving our rights to corporations is to elect strong Democratic leaders to office.

Please support: My name is Ron Barber, and I’m the Democrat running in the special election in the district that my friend Gabby Giffords represented in Arizona.

The next 48 hours are critical -- Tea Party Republican Jesse Kelly was nominated by Republicans on Tuesday to run against me in the special election.

Kelly is the same Tea Party candidate who came so close to defeating Gabby in 2010. He’s back with his plans to destroy Social Security and end Medicare. He'd even abolish the minimum wage.

The special election is just weeks away and we will need as much grassroots support as possible to defeat Jesse Kelly. Grassroots support was key to Gabby's victory in 2010, so we have set a goal to reach 1,000 new donors in the next 48 hours to show Jesse Kelly that we will not abandon middle class families. Can you help us reach this critical goal?

Contribute $3 or more to my campaign in the next 48 hours to help defeat Jesse Kelly >>

We've worked too hard and come too far to let Jesse Kelly go to Congress to kick the legs out from under the middle class. We simply can’t let Jesse Kelly finish Gabby's term in Congress.

Please help us send a powerful message that we have the momentum to win and contribute before the deadline.

Many thanks,


Ron Barber

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.
