Democrats and News Organizations are Slack in Reporting Outcomes from Republican Shenanigans

Comments are closed.

I understand that there is a lot going on, however I’m highly disappointed in the news media and Democrats not following up on the shenanigans of conservatives and the Republican party.  It makes me wonder if they really want to win the election this time around in November.

Over and over and over again we’ve heard about different scandals the Republican party has been involved with—like receiving political contributions through the National Rifle Association (NRA) from foreign donors.  What ever happened to that report?  I’ve been watching the news, but I’ve not seen the big finale or conclusion to that incident.  Are they still investigating?  Did they find out all who were receiving the funds?  How much was it?  I’ll bet if it were the other way around, you would still be hearing from Republicans to this day…no matter what the outcome was.

I just want to say for me, it is not okay.  Somebody needs to start closing the loop.  I think it emboldens the perpetrator when there seems to be no outcry to their offense.  So, taking the time to do a thorough follow up will both inform the public and if warranted cause a public outcry and awareness to what was done; and hopefully justice will be served.

Some politicians think they are above the law and should corrected quickly.  They are public servants.  It was a mistake to let them vote for increases in their own wages and benefits way back when, and it is a mistake to not correct them now.  They are getting out of hand.

Some Who Benefit from Strikes will Never Get It

I applaud the teachers and other public workers who strike.  I think we all should.  Breaks, time off, vacations, sick days were all negotiated into the work experience by people who took a stand.

If employers actually provided things for employees that were reasonable requests, then maybe unions and strikes would not be necessary.  But, until that day of overall cum-by-yah actually comes, then we can expect disruptions ever so often.

Profit may be the bottom line in a capitalist-based society.  But, huge, unfettered profits and grift should not be the norm, nor accepted in any form.   I think we, as people and ordinary workers, have to learn more about business so that if we get tired of working for someone else, then another form of earning should be in place.  Co-ops are a great place to start exploring!  Read about and let’s start a conversation.

Opinion: Brittney Griner Should Not Be in A Russian Jail

Comments are closed.

Brittney Griner

Brittney Griner just got sentenced to 9 years in Russian jail for having a couple of vape cartridges of cannabis oil… and fined 1 million rubles to boot. 😐 These are my thoughts concerning that.

Thought 1.

There is too much going on in the world for Russia (of all people) trying to hold someone for possibly having a couple of cartridges of cannabis.  If they paid as much attention to their athletes with steroids, they would be doing something productive with their time.

Thought 2.

America is weak.  Send a message directly to the Russian people and say, “Okay, bet… when you guys come to America, you can look forward to a nice search of your shit too.”  Granted that might make most of them happy because they actually want to stay here, make it clear that they can thank Putin for the complimentary thoroughness. You would think they’d want to improve their relations, but I guess they’ve got something to prove.

Thought 3. [From Left Field]

It seems black folk and people of color get the worst deals no matter where we are.  There are several Billion more people of color (and their allies) that stack up against the bad actors of the world and we need to start demanding better.

I’m not impressed with American leadership, nor am I impressed with other leaders around the world. We could be doing so much better.  So what I’m suggesting is… somehow; some way we need to have a “joining of the people”—the common citizenry that corrects the bumbling of nation leaders when they occur.  It only takes the effort of brave and moral people to make the difference.  Live by the motto of treating others fairly, as you would want to be treated and keep it moving.  The world is a shitty place right now. Only because good people have not stepped up to make a difference.  It’s time for that change to come.

✊🏾 Bring Brittney home.

Officers Arrested in Breonna Taylor Killing

AG Garland and the Department of Justice arrest officers in Breonna Taylor killing

The AP reports that the federal government has arrested four Louisville police officers involved in the  killing of Breonna Taylor.  …It is about time!!! As you may recalled Breonna Taylor was shot to death when officers entered her home, late at night, un-announced.

I’m not going to retell the story here, I just wanted to follow up on the story and mention the fact that the wheels of Justice are finally turning.  And I hope they keep turning to all the other cases that need to be looked at involving police shooting black folk.   I believe that there is a place and purpose for law enforcement, but just pulling out the heat and gunning down black folk is not the answer.  I agree with Attorney General Merrick Garland in his sentiment that “Breonna Taylor should be alive today”.  And honestly, so should many others.  See the link below to see the AP Story!

My Opinion on the US Supreme Court’s Decision: On Guns

Comments are closed.

I think the Republican lead SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) is now party to the business of killing Black people–IF nothing changes with policing.  Their decision concerning New York gun laws has made it more of a problem for people of color to stand their ground against police, who either misuse or misinterpret their authority, like White-Americans do.  (Because as we have seen in videos, they rarely get shot)

I didn’t think their jobs were to manipulate the laws of this land.  It looks like they  have done that on several occasions.  So–I guess there is no more settled law.

Police are already claiming they fear for their lives when African-Americans breathe wrong or turn to walk away from a situation escalated by the police.  Now, with this new ruling by the Supreme Court about concealed weapons, I believe Read More
