Do Unto Others Forgotten in Jerusalem

Do Unto Others Forgotten in Jerusalem
What a farce when two under investigation leaders like Trump and Netanyahu sit and gloat over the dedication of a U.S. embassy in Jerusalem and consider it a condition for bringing peace to the middle east but I guess that is the very definition of farce, a comedic drama. Apparently other nations find it a... Read more »

“B” in IBEW Does Not Mean Black For Future Energy Jobs Act

“B” in IBEW Does Not Mean Black For Future Energy Jobs Act
I never considered my self an angry black woman but I may have to don a baseball cap with ABW!!! emblazoned on it. I’ve marched. I’ve protested starting way back with the Viet Nam war and Earth Day. On the 50th anniversary of the martyrdom of Dr. M.L. King, Jr. I quietly hoped somethings had... Read more »

The Russia Hacking Worked on Me…..Maybe Not

The Russia Hacking Worked on Me…..Maybe Not
I have always felt the attempt by politicians to manipulate my vote. That is what politicians do. It’s the political DNA to lie, manipulate. It makes it hard to make decisions for us citizens. I also feel that the US (United States and us as part of it) have manipulated elections in other countries but... Read more »

Have You Ever Felt Like You’ve Been Threatened? Or is the Bronzeville Microgrid that Serious?

Have You Ever Felt Like You’ve Been Threatened? Or is the Bronzeville Microgrid that Serious?
I never thought that would be a question that I would have. Threatened? OK, the grammar school bully might have been pretty scary and maybe you had a run in with some ruffian who wanted to snatch your cell phone. That’s being a kid and later that’s living in the city but this is different. ... Read more »

#Himtoo More Sexual Abuse Comes to Light

I participated in the #Metoo. I can’t think of many women who have not been pinched, groped, or leered at. In my case there was an “uncle” who thought that propositioning a sixteen year old girl with the promise of a new car was acceptable. There was the very powerful and wealthy boss that called...

Life According to a Facebook Friend

Life According to a Facebook Friend
This will be the second time that I post something my FB friend Johnny Kline wrote. It is not the second time that I have wanted to snatch a page from Johnny and share it beyond Facebook. It’s one of the many times. When I read this out loud to my husband, the old black... Read more »

Trump Invaded my Morning

Trump Invaded my Morning
This morning I was watching the snow fall out side our windows and sipping an espresso that my husband brewed for us. It was a nice start to the day. I was avoiding Facebook and wasn’t  too sure I was going to read emails, at least not until after football. Then Trump invaded my morning.... Read more »

Keeping it Real on Independence Day

Keeping it Real on Independence Day
It’s the fourth of July, Independence Day. We celebrate free speech. So today I am celebrating my right to differ with the folks who started a petition for Grey’s Anatomy to fire Jesse Williams for exercising his right to speak freely. The celebration is not you can speak freely as long as you don’t piss... Read more »
