Are these black lives really not worth a damn?

How do we keep ending up with 2 Americas?  The one America that Ted Cruz is living in, where we taxpayers pay his stankin’ ass, top dollar, to sit up on high, with his Obamacare and a housing allowance, to preach down, to all the stupid, little people who just weren’t Blessed, like he was.

What about the America that Rand Paul wants to take us back to?  That’s the one that harkens back to “Gone With The Wind”, his father Ron Paul’s America, when Black folk didn’t get uppity and a business owner could serve who he wanted to serve. He said he would not have voted for a Civil Rights Act that demanded “Equal Protection” and that desegregated schools and created teacher’s unions and that created bussing and mixing of the Races?

Is that what they mean by taking back “their” country.  I must keep reminding them that I am Choctaw Indian.  My ancestors were here, when Christopher Columbus got here.  This is a Nation of immigrants but the immigrants that took this country seems to think that the generations of mistreatment by the White people who made us build this country can just go on forever.

Police have long since used Black communities to create lifestyles designed around pretending to serve & to protect, when, in reality, Black folks get “policed, while serving and protecting is only afforded to people who, naturally include officer’s friends and families.  They serve and protect people’s property and the neighborhoods that are quiet.

The shooting of an unarmed Black man, Walter Scott, in the back, by North Charleston Police Officer Michael T. Slager, is the America Black people have feared and have lived with, all of these years, since slaves were brought here.  Now, thank God, camera are capturing, in real time, the psyche of those who we are supposed to have the most trust in, to do the right thing.

I hope we’ll all say a little prayer.  I try not to turn everything into a “Race card” but friends, I say “If the foo shits…”.  Something is very wrong, in our society, when we allow a public trust to turn into “Lord of The Flies”.  It’s not quite as civilized as I thought it was.

Black lives do matter.  I’m asking for everyone who reads this, please just hear the Democrats out.  We need a strong #Democrat leader to stand up to the Police Union, the NRA, and to the extreme, Conservative, money & power driven, (really BIG Government), Republicans and to those selfish, fearful, squishy, sold out @Democrats.  This is a damn shame, is what it is.  Smh!

NO MORE NAMES, PLEASE!

Here we go again. It really is embarrassing. We sit here and let the NRA and the Gun Lobby dictate what we will and will not talk about. The news networks refuse to have balanced debate on the issues that 70-80% of us agree on. Federal Legislators heed what their “States Rights” Governors say their constituents want but the polls tell a different story. Who decides what we will or will not act on? Why won’t they even let our representative legislators, at least, fund research to try to address the issue of gun violence? Are they so crazed about some small, gradual, restrictions that they have to throw the 2nd Amendment in our faces every time we start addressing this recurring madness. The only thing that NEVER changes, is the common sense of looking at “the GUN”, as the common denominator in these events. How can we move forward with steps that could bring some sanity and some sensible gun legislation into the equation? If it doesn’t start with Congress, then there is not much we can do. I feel terrible for Richard Martinez. I don’t want his son, Christopher Martinez, to have died in vain.  He’s 100% right about the “gutless wonders”, in the U.S. House of Representatives–and that goes for members in both Parties.  Democrats are just as guilty for not standing up to those House Republicans who are getting filthy rich by simply doing nothing.  They think that as long as the NRA is satisfied, they can keep their cushy jobs, their big salaries, with their public option Health care and their perks and pensions and most of all those political donations.  It’s more than shameful–it’s sinful.  Good thing I’m not the judger of judges!  http://www.kmov.com/video/featured-videos/Calif-shooting-rampage-victims-father-very-emotional-in-interview-260659491.htmlImage
