End of June…July…Independence?

June ended taking away an independence for women of their privacy and the freedom to choose and decide how their lives and health would be affected revolving around pregnancy with the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

June couldn’t have ended on a more devastating and backward act of stifling progress and the realization that life in America confirms that humans are not the most intelligent life in the universe… From the Hill to the population…

July brings in Independence Day…

How can Independence Day bring about celebration in a country that suppresses…oppresses…deprives its constituents of basic human rights…and destroys progress by sending women’s privacy and health back to the dark ages…while suppressing and changing voting rights that stack the deck against the practice and meaning of democracy?

What population cohesiveness will July bring forth?

The use of “cohesiveness” is with hope…

America has been flying divided for far too long…

Are we witnessing the fall of yet another country that has taken advantage of the sovereignty entrusted to it?

When will the American people exercise their independence and stand up to those who have shackled their freedoms with endless lies and manipulations–the majority of the GOP? Democrats are losing ground because they continue to believe that the Republicans will engage in bipartisan politics…someday…and they refuse to fight fire with fire…Huge mistake! All the while they are playing this docile game, the “united states” continues to drift into the great divide.

Meanwhile….The political slavery of Trump’s specter and his GOP constituents continues to haunt…dismantle…weaken, dissolve and cripple democracy which threatens to reduce America to hell on earth…and plummet hard won freedoms into oblivion…such as Roe v. Wade…and the right to vote, a cornerstone of American Democracy.

Our “Independence Day” will come when everyone truly understands the meaning of independence…and how it cannot be severed and conditional to human rights…by marginalizing freedom…free-will…and the right to be your own person…

The practice of these oppressive acts are quite contrary to Independence Day…

July…Independence?

Juneteenth…in June…

Independence Day…in July…

Both are one in the illusive pursuit of…Freedom…

What will July expose?

We will find out…

July is here…

Stand up…

Another battle for independence has arrived….

The Irony of American Democracy…

The Irony of American Democracy…

It is a small wonder that some countries around the world block and fight for their countries not to become “victims” of Democracy as is now happening here in America…the country that pushes it…but does not fully practice it.

How can a country go out into the world and promote a system it does not totally believe in…or exclusively support? 

The only two things America believes in and supports without question is “Dollars” and “Racism.”

It is most unfortunate that Dollars and Racism outweigh the efforts of those who believe in the equality dream and doctrines that would support a free and unified country.  American hypocrisy has laid waste to many developing nations and other countries who believed in and desire a governing system that would allow their citizens to thrive while living in freedom… A dream contrived and distorted by those in our own government fixated on a time in American history when imports of free men and women from African countries were enslaved and forced to build and cultivate a nation of “White Luxury” and self-appointed “White Supremacy.” Atrocities that still haunt and exist in today’s America…

These are the factions that are driving the Republican Party…along with some silent…and a few verbal Democrats, such as Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, to revive “Ole Dixieland.”

These two Democrats can exercise supporting the greater good of the citizens of this country over their going against their party to support a tool the Republicans depend on to stall and avoid bipartisan politics between the two parties; the Filibuster.  It’s time for a change…American politics need an overhaul and dismissal of all that is archaic and oppressive.

Also, remember that Arizona is one of the states adopting laws that support voter suppression…something Senator Sinema supports by her stance alone.

Spurred on by the persuasive lies and rhetoric continually spewed forth by Trump, the GOP (and some Democrats, in their stanch silence) have managed to undermine and change the principal constituent of Democracy: The Right to Vote.

These destroyers of Democracy have managed to change election rules and limit voting rights in 17, soon to be 18 states, in an effort to diminish Democrat turnout and ensure wins of Republican candidates.  The main objective of this partisan, Republican movement is to disenfranchise voters of color, who vote as Democrats.  The off-handed disguise these derelict politicians are using to defend their actions is they’re “cracking down on voter fraud.” Another massive lie conceived by and pushed by Trump and his followers.

The very few cases of “voter fraud” uncovered were committed by Republican voters trying to vote more than once for Trump in the 2020 Election.

There was an Iowa woman who voted twice for Trump and has pleaded guilty to election misconduct…a felony charge.

She turned in two absentee ballots before the November election last year.  Believing Trump’s unsubstantiated claims about the election being “rigged.”

She was arrested while attempting to vote the second ballot.

Her recommended sentence by attorneys are two years of probation and community service…Care to guess what sentence a person of color would pull down for such a felony offense? American “equality” doesn’t apply to people of color as we have witnessed time and time again…

14 Republican majority states have adopted and enacted laws that give partisan GOP officials more control over election oversight…extremely dangerous in controlling the outcome of elections that oppose Republican candidates because they can use any reason to overturn the election results in favor of their candidates! Democracy in action, according to them.  What we are really seeing and witnessing is Authoritarianism… Dictatorship… Fascism. 

Welcome to the “American Dream.”

In the state of Georgia, a Republican commission now has the power to remove local election officials and they are removing Democrats of color from local boards.  The Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, is a corrupt Republican… who did indeed stack his election by being the Attorney General at the time…and overseer of the votes…that delivered him the position.

In Arkansas, they have taken control from county authorities.

Republicans have introduced about 216 bills in 41 states to give legislatures more power over election officials… 24 of those 216 introduced bills have been enacted into law across 14 states where Republican politicians are in rule.

President Biden gave a speech today in Philadelphia, he shouted to Republicans, “Have you no shame?”

Shame is for those who have a conscience…Republicans have neither conscience or souls…Their allegiance is not to America…but to themselves and their agenda to destroy it…and create another oppressive, divided, unequal, authoritarian nation…where they are in control of life…liberty…and the pursuit of happiness…and dreams are no longer an ideal or hope for real Americans. 

There is a limit to trying to achieve bipartisan politics with “zombies.” Clearly visible to everyone witnessing Republican “politics” that they are dead…soulless zombies…the way to deal with them is to “cut off the heads of the snakes.”

Beginning with reformation or elimination of the filibuster…eliminating the Electoral College…passing executive laws to override Republican state enforced voter suppression laws…and cutting off support to Republicans who endorse and continue to spread Trump’s lies of division and eventual “Armageddon” to Democracy…if those who can put a stop to this “unholy war” on America do not take heed and stop these unholy Republican insurrectionists and anarchists, in the Senate, the House, and in states embracing Racism and America’s sins of White Supremacy, and their inhumanity to those they considered “inferior” to European immigrants who settled here…to escape “oppression.”

The Irony of America…and Democracy…

Will result in the Death of Her…

And Liberty…

And Justice…

For All…

Including the dissident GOP…

Oh…

The irony…..

It Never Gets Any Easier…

Some days are better than others…

It never gets any easier…

On March 17, 2016, my mom passed away…Today is March 17, 2021…five years to the day. I spent March 16th, 2016 with my mother under the unfortunate circumstances of family members who would not let her live out her last years in peace…to her dying day.

The peaceful moments we shared together in the last years of her life…were priceless!

While I miss her terribly…and long to spend time with her…and hold telephone conversations with her…go to movie matinees with her…hear her laughter and sit down to dinner with her…I wonder if God’s timing wasn’t the best thing that happened to her…in calling her home when he did…

She left in the year of President Obama’s last term…She had the opportunity to see the first Black American family in the White House…

She was spared the blatant rise of Racism here in America against men and women of color; which would have only perpetuated the memory of her own son, my brother, a victim to police murder while visiting relatives in Louisiana in January, 1979…He was 24…unarmed…non-threatening…minding his own business…He was killed for being Black….

Mom would tell me stories about her life growing up in Oklahoma…and the racism and prejudice she endured for being Black…

Mom was spared the lawlessness and White Privilege of the Trump years…and the aftermath of collateral damage to American citizens…left to pick up the pieces of their shattered and broken dreams…and lives…forever altered by a pandemic denied and ignored by Trump and his Trumpist GOP constituency, spinning out of control lies… while fueling divisive propaganda that left American Democracy hanging by a thread, accented by an insurrection which resulted in lives lost, and the Capitol Building being desecrated…

Mom was 83 years when she made her passage to Glory…Had she stayed, she would have been coming upon 89 years…She may not have survived this pandemic with her underlying health issues…Blessings come in many disguises…even if we may not see them that way.

There are days when I awake and think, “I wish I could talk to mom about this…”

I miss her wisdom…her unsolicited advice and opinions…which always seem to be right on time…when you wish they weren’t! I miss our talks…I miss her cooking…I miss all the church socials she would buy me tickets to attend…without asking if I had any plans for those days…of course, I attended with her… I miss the way she extended her love to everyone without question…she always wanted people to be happy and enjoy themselves…I miss how she went out of her way to take care of others…without expectation of anything in return… I miss her smile…her tenderness…her love…

March 17th will always be more than Saint Patrick’s Day to me…

The Luck of the Irish brings home the life and love of my mom…in recognition of a life which will be forever celebrated…in grand old Irish style…and with grand memories in my heart…A picture book I will always have access to enter and view…

Happy celebration of life, mom…

If your mom is still with you in life…show her some love and appreciation…Every moment of every day…

One day her “celebration of life” will be on your doorstep…

Make every second count!

Make love count…

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all….

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas…

Grinch Mitch McConnell…

You’re a mean one…

You really are a heel…

You’re as cuddly as a cactus…

You’re as charming as an eel…

Grinch Mitch McConnell you’re a bad banana…

With the greasy black peel…

You’re a vile one…

You got termites in your smile…

You have all the tender sweetness

Of a seasick crocodile…

You’re a foul one…

Friends, you don’t have none…

I wouldn’t touch you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole!

Grinch Mitch McConnell you’re a monster…

You’re heart’s an empty hole…

You’re a goner…

You got garlic in your soul…

You got garlic in your soul

You’ve spoiled everybody with your bad attitude!

Who is this mean fellow?

With his skin all green and his teeth all yellow?

It’s Grinch McConnell!

The Grinch Who Stole Christmas from America, Man!

Who wants to peddle his stingy plan…

Making cuts that are crucial to help Americans stand

Through this long, Covid winter that has shattered our land

He’s kicked the country to the curb with his GOP boot

Snickering loudly… as he stashes the loot

In the pockets… of his Brooks Brothers’ suit

Undermining American Democracy…with his leader and his team

Some say a dictator… and his Fascist regime.

They call themselves “Republicans” to hide their scheme…

Grinch McConnell knows no shame…

Because he sold his soul to the Devil… when he started this game…

Darkness falls at the mention of his name…

Grinch McConnell…He’s to blame…

He stole Christmas from me…and stole Christmas from you…

Leaving many without homes…and starving, too.

What to do? Oh, what to do?!

How about we vote those Georgia Senators, Blue?!

Let’s throw Grinch McConnell a New Year’s curve…

A Blue controlled Senate will end his serve…

A great win and deserve… to end his verve!

Grinch McConnell knows no shame…

He sold his soul to the Devil…when he started this game…

Darkness falls at the mention of his name…

Grinch McConnell…he’s to blame…

He stole Christmas…

Our lives will never be the same….

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in a statement that “the bipartisan negotiations involving Senators and Members of the House have made good progress and must be allowed to proceed without Leader McConnell’s obstruction.”

You’re a monster… Grinch McConnell….
