Obamacare, Are You Serious?

Rollout, admittedly by him to be disastrous and the only reason he hasn’t rolled heads is because it would highlight further incompetence which ultimately leads back to him. Human mistakes happen, but damn!

The idea that I bought into was that of available health care for all, but damn the red tape connected to this …. wow! People going from plans they like, costing less that $100 per month, forced into monthly mortgage payments –… Continue reading

Syria

Seriously, our government has intelligence, secret of course, that justifiers us surely killing some innocent people in order to teach the Assad regime that we mean business. Wow, current history teach us nothing.

Tell me again why we want to topple an Islamic country regime, aid the rebels fighting such, whom we know little about, in order to accomplish (Iraq/Libya/Afghanistan/Egypt/etc.) what, and to suffer int he future, what?

Subject of killing people so important, Senator… Continue reading

Pro-Choice

Roe v. Wade will soon be irrelevant in many states, Texas etc., because the opportunity to afford yourself of choice will be so limited that many unwanted pregnancies/childbirth’s will occur.
I wouldn’t want any of my children to be aborted, my personal opinion. But should I be able to make a woman carry to term a baby she doesn’t want/need; if so, am I willing to spend my tax dollars in helping her raise that… Continue reading

Treyvon Martin, George Zimmerman

RIP little brother. Why does it take such a senseless act to spur the minority to pay attention to and engage public policy, politics; indifference and you awaken to laws existing in 31 of the 50 estates with has legalized the killing of your children.
On 07/17/13, Michelle Alexander, author of “The New Jim Crow”, appeared on radio, www. democracynow.org, she hand some very interesting things to say; also appearing that day was someone… Continue reading

Obama / Snowden / NSA / America

I’m not comfortable writing about this, I don’t want and especially don’t need to be on any anti-government list. But ….
What does America mean when you can’t question government without ending cup on some watch list; what does it mean when our “Press” is corporate-sponsored-owned and they basically do PR for government press releases; what does it mean when our government outright lies to us, gets caught, and we accept that t-HE-y “mis-spoke”; what… Continue reading

Paula Dean

Plantation wedding for her brother, use of the word nigger (not niggah), during the 1980’s; hmmmm. Personally I’m not that upset about it. Why? I was born in 1971, many of the oppressed blacks that raised/reared me often made statements/comments that were prejudiced based; honky, redneck, white-devil, etc., and those feelings ran so deep that if in a position of power they would have had/implemented racist policies/practices that adversely affected whites.
So, why are we… Continue reading

U.S. Supreme Court

DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act ) decision, got that right.
California Prop *; passed the buck on a procedural issue, “No Standing; why then, grant Cert in the first place”, but in the end, just outcome that needs to evolve to other states.
Voting Rights, gutting the law; sadly but realistically, many still harbor prejudice and are in positions to implement racist policies to restrict the vote and other rights. We’d like to think that… Continue reading

Ken Burns, ‘The Central Park Five’: 6/4/13

On April 18th or 19th, 1989, Trisha Meils was the victim of a horrific rape; arrested/charged with the crime were Antron McCray, Raymond Santana Jr., Yusef Salaam, Korey Wise, and Kevin Richardson, they confessed.

Actually, no, they didn’t; these young men were framed, the frame up had respected politicians using the case to justify bringing the death penalty back. The crime plead on some basic American racial-feelings, black men raping a white woman; it was… Continue reading

Lose Our Spirit/Morality to Revenge : 4/21/13

Boston marathon terrorist attack has us sad, mad, at the root of these emotions, FEAR. We want revenge, celebrated in the street, . . .”We got him!” Question, got who? The person (Dzhokhar Tsarnaev/tool) who committed an act we’re describing as terrorist, or, do we get and have we challenged ourselves to address what motivates anyone to do that?

We don’t win catching a terrorist or a criminal who’s acted, have

we not noticed that… Continue reading

Universal Background Checks for Gun Purchases: 4/21/13

As a convicted felon who used a gun in his crime, I had NO idea that when purchasing guns during gun shows or from a private buyer there were no background checks, wow.

No matter what the political climate, can’t understand how the NRA could get our elected officials to block universal background checks, when the gun lobby’s overall cry is that the goal is to keep guns out of criminal’s hands? Well, overall sentiment… Continue reading
