Grifting Ain't Easy

Today, I learned grifting isn't as easy as it seems when the GOP folks do it.   I offered, on my Twitter feed, moon rocks for sale to all who had faith in the GOP doing right.  Sadly I've not sold one moon rock.

Say what you want but GOP folks have it down to a science.  Sarah Palin to Donald Trump have separated more folks from their money and minds than the Tilt-aWorld at the county fair.


Grifting isn't my life work it seems.  I shall continue to do what I do, call out bull shit daily.

People we need a plan of action and we need one now.  The Democrats in office playing rollover.  I am not here to appease anyone who allows the American people to be played.  Do your jobs folks.

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.
