Congressional Democrats and the ACA

At some point someone will awaken to the fact the ACA is not healthcare, it is a set of regulation for health insurance providers.  I have sat by since 2010 watching the crazy over allowing more people to purchase health insurance at an affordable rate. 

 The ACA is not President Obama’s idea.  It is the brainchild of the Republican party’s think tank, The Heritage Foundation.  It is geared to put more public dollars into the hands of private enterprise.  It is not the plan actually put forth by President Obama. 

Yet, we still have some Democrats running away from the ACA instead of calling it out very simple as I have done in less than 250 words.  We need Democrats with spines to be elected to office.  People unafraid to say, “ACA is not the best but it is better than no regulation of the healthcare insurance market.”  It is simple.  Each Democrat in Congress should be in his or her state making such things known.  It is not for the President to push ACA.   Congress, grow an loving spine and talk to the people. 

Congressional Democrats, tell to the people the good of the ACA and what you would do to make it better.  Grow a loving spine.  At this stage you should understand the people really don’t want GOP governance.  The only people seeking GOP legislation are those who desire to continue the economic oppression of others and those who fear they are becoming a minority.

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.
