Wasting money

This posting is quick.  I have some studying to do today.  Although I have been known to throw money on the crap table, I am relatively thrifty.  Given my thrifty nature it is natural for me to be perturb with the hearings being held by Issa.  Issa has wasted both time and money attempting to create scandals.  At this point I can only see the scandals as being a nod to the base(Tea Party).  Just a nod mind you for theses hearings have no foundations.

One would think, after the multi-million dollar pornographic novel written by Kenneth Starr at the tax payers' expense, the GOP would give up the hunt for impeachment.  The only scandal I can see sits in the House.  It is a scandal that Issa is allowed to waste the money and the time of the American people.

Congress needs to get busy with our infrastructure.  We need for the EPA to be made stronger to handle the mass violation of regulation by corporations cutting costs.   We need for Congress to do the work of the people not run a two ring circus.

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.
