Please don't do Koch

Quick blog posting.

As I prepared to blog about a troll on my Twitter TL, I took the time to read two links.  I was very disturbed by what I read.

The first link was about MS becoming a nuclear waste storage state.  My first response was hell no.  The state is too small to store nuclear waste.  We also border one of the major rivers in the United States that feeds into the Gulf of Mexico.  We as a state need to think on this $$$ making opportunity.  Sometimes it is best to go without than to make a little money.  Something the Koch candidate for Senate in NJ is preaching to single mothers.

 I was upset this challenger to Corey Booker was attempting to shame single mothers into giving up SNAP benefits.  He falsely stated there were no such programs when he was a kid. If he and his sibling received death benefits, after his father's death, they were getting a government benefit.  His mother did not do it on her own.  Some people fail to think of the Social Security death benefit to children as government benefit like SNAP but it is.   Amazing how this Koch works.

Koch did not hid their intent to PR people into accepting less as they, the Kochs, get more.  I hear people making less than $100K repeating this nonsense.  I hear people who have known the financial devastation of cancer say we don't need the EPA.  Koch has gotten their money worth in their PR campaign via media and lobbying of elected officials.  It is time for people to wake up in America.  We need to stop voting for corporate owned candidates who do not serve the people.  This nation went to war many years ago because of the unfair advantage given to corporations by the government (research the Real Tea Party).

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.

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

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.
