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.

Past time to talk about Mitt as governor
Tonight bloggers need to do what the MSM will not do, tell the truth. As luck would have it, I have associates from Massachusetts who tell a different story about Mitt's term as governor. These people would be those who worked for the State of Massachusetts. There are many things about Mitt we need to tell and to relate back to the GOP as a whole. His term as governor of Massachusetts is just one of many things the public needs to hear.
I am posting below comments from others who have gone on the record with the Obama campaign about Mitten's term as governor.
Massachusetts Officials Speak Out Against Romney’s Revisionist History
CHICAGO – Mitt Romney’s campaign is
telegraphing that he’ll talk about his faux bipartisanship tonight. The
debate hasn’t even started yet, and they’re already pushing an argument
that is completely divorced from reality. The truth
is the real Romney
didn’t reach across the aisle in Massachusetts like he claims.
In response to Mitt Romney revisionist version of
history, elected officials from Massachusetts released the following
“I was a Massachusetts Representative for all of
Mitt Romney’s term as Governor. I’ve worked with four Governors in
Massachusetts, including three Republicans and I never saw a more
disengaged chief executive that Mitt Romney. From day
one it’s clear that Romney was focused on padding his resume and moving
on to a Presidential run. Romney took drastic measure to isolate
himself and his office from legislators and constituents. He
consistently failed to show up for work, let alone work with
legislative leaders on the issues important to the people of
Massachusetts. We saw what happened in the Bay State under Romney: the
state sank to 47th out of 50 in job creation and he left his successor with a billion-dollar deficit. America can’t
afford a Mitt Romney presidency.” - Massachusetts Representative Jeffrey Sanchez
“I saw firsthand that Mitt Romney had little
interest in doing the hard work of governing. Romney was more interested
in political posturing and photo-ops as he began planning his
Presidential campaign than he was in actually serving the
people of Massachusetts. Romney failed the people of Massachusetts and
that’s the same brand of leadership he would bring to the White House.” -
Massachusetts Representative Marty Walz
Romney talks a big talk, but the facts just don’t match the rhetoric.
Mitt Romney said he was going to be bipartisan in Massachusetts and
wasn’t; he said he was
going to create jobs, and didn’t; and he said he was going to balance
the budget and couldn’t. Why should anyone think he’d be any different
as President of the United States?” -
John Barrett, Former Mayor of North Adams, MA
“Mitt Romney thinks he can play by a different set
of rules than middle class workers. How many people could get away with
not showing up to work for 417 days over a four year period? Not only
does Romney think he can get away with not
going to work, now he’s asking for a promotion. Woody Allen once said
that ‘eighty percent of success is showing up.’ As Governor, Romney
couldn’t even be bothered to show up. Now he has the gall to go to a
debate and just lie about his record.” –
Massachusetts Representative Kathi-Anne Reinstein
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.
