Walking on Water

I am attempting to remember when President Obama stated he walked on water.  I may have missed his saying those words.  However, I do tire of the narrative built by his detractors stating he should walk on water.  He is human; stop the crazy.   He can't plug an oil spill with his dick and although he is brilliant,  he is not a web developer.   
Could the website have been better? Hell yes. Should we have used direct hire FTEs for this project?  Hell yes.  Can it be fixed before November 30th? Hell yes. 

It is sad when left leaning media outlets take the Koch narratiive and run with it. There is a failure by the media to inform the public of a need for a change in our healthcare system.   It seems the media would rather take the cheap way out by reporting on a website's failure to launch than why the for profit system has failed American families.
I write opinions not news.  Yet it seems I and others like me report more news than the actual media.   I get most of my news from Twitter.  I refuse to buy into these false and highly funded Koch narratives that are being reported as news.  

We as Americans need to.wake up.  The tragedy is not the failure of the website but our willingness to say ACA doesn't work because of a website. The tragedy is the failure of reporting and our willingness to not ask.for reporting.

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.
