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.

Who is voting for Romney?
Recently I watched The Help. Tonight I watched Undercover Boss ( Checker's Burgers episode). Against that backdrop of working poor being used for gain by the upperclass , I saw the video of Romney speech to his donors. I am shocked at the people who are shocked by what Romney had to say. Romney has stated time and time again his policies that will benefit those making $250K and above. Romney has even chosen a running mate who seeks to take more public funds for private gains. Ryan's plan will turn social security and medicare into a private enterprise banquet for the wealthy (private equity fund managers).
If domestics and those working at the fast food chains were paid $250K then Romney would not consider them to be worthless. However because domestics and fast food workers can not live off $8/hour he attempts to shame these people in to silence. My question, when will those who have fallen for the "lazy people" "dependent people" code phrases realize Mitt Romney is not in your corner?
Mitt is more concern with saving money for investors than for those who actually break a sweat for a living. He is not concerned with 47% of Americans at the least. The sadder part of the the release of the video is the RNC's Chair statement that Mitt was not off target with his words. It is shocking to have the GOP come out of the closet dressed head to toe in disdain for the working man and woman. It is a shame our elected officials do not care about the people they were elected to serve. If you have less than $250K as your yearly salary, you really need to think about your vote for the GOP.

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.
