The Right Victim

Ever since Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct the victim blaming is at an all time high. I’m used to it. When an unarmed black man is shot by the police, the deceased’s background is incessantly probed. Excuses are made as to justify the shooting, and we move on to the…

The Day We Have Forgotten

September 11th is a day that is marked in infamy within U.S. history. This is the largest attack on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor. Those who were alive to remember the horror of that day become extremely reflective. If you look on social media, then you’ll see a lot of tributes to first responders. Thank the Lord…

Middle Ground

What’s up readers? How are y’all this Christmas season? I hope you are all in good spirits! Me? I’m doing well. I’m quite amused at the moment. I’ll tell you why. I hopped on Twitter this morning to see a thread about the danger of saying Merry Christmas. The basics of it was some people…

100 Days War

President Trump has been in office for the first 100 days of his four-year term. Are we better off than when we started? No. Not yet anyway. I’m trying to give President Trump the benefit of the doubt. Not because I, in any way, agree with what he’s saying, but because the success of my…

Inauguration Day

Today is the day Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.  Many people are excited. Many people are angry. Some overjoyed. Some grieving. There are a host of emotions that have surrounded this day. Now that it’s here I came help but think how similar things were…

The Legacy of President Barack Obama

The final chapter of the presidency of Barack H. Obama has been written. President Obama delivered his farwell address in his hometown of Chicago this past Tuesday night. He spoke with power, grace, and class. He was poised and articulate. The choked up as he praised his wife, Michelle. He was gushing as he spoke…

My President

In two days Donald Trump is going to be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. His presidency has not officially started, and it’s already something to behold. Since the results have been released, protests (and some riots) popped up around the country. He’s been in Twitter battles with Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin,…

We Will Rise Above

It’s been an emotional week. If I thought people were nasty before the election, then I surely was not prepared for the storm of ugliness that awaited me after the election results. Personally, my emotions were all over the place. Anger. Sadness. Dejection. Disbelief. Numbness. I was even on the verge of tears. It wasn’t…

Regression

Donald J.Trump is the 45th President of the United States, and that makes me sick. I have so many emotions running through me right now. Anger. Sadness. Despair. I’m sitting here asking myself how a candidate who is so hot-headed can be chosen to run our country. I’m baffled at how the hatred of his…

Election Day 2016

The day we have waited for since last year is here. It’s time to go vote! We’ve endured what stands be one of the worst presidential campaign seasons in modern history. Whether you’re conservative or liberal, you probably have looked at a friend (even a relative in some cases) sideways for their choice of President….

Campaign Season

The gong show that is the 2016 Presidential Election is almost over, and I couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, the damage has been done. And it’s ugly. I have never seen as much vitriol in the American people as I’ve seen within the past year. Let me rephrase. I have never seen this much hate with my…

Debate Night: Part 2

Tonight was debate number two for the 2016 Presidential Election, and it was painful. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had one of the worst presidential debates in modern history. I would venture to say it holds the title of the worst. These two sounded like toddlers screaming in Wal-Mart. Trump dodged questions and rambled. Hillary…
