I WOKE UP THIS MORNING WITH FIRE IN MY BELLY!
I woke up with fire in my belly this morning! The GOP did not win because the people agree with their policies. They won because people DID NOT SHOW UP at the polls and VOTE. Nevertheless, the GOP is flaunting their win as an rubber stamp from the people which is not true. Deception from the GOP played a big part in the elections and have been in play every since President Obama ran for the Office of President.
Now that the GOP has won back the house they are showing their true plans for the American people and our President. They plan to use their victory as a sign that the people are in agreement with them so that they can reward billionaires and millionaires like the Koch Brothers, Rupert Murdoch, Glen Beck, Hannity, and O"Reilly with big fat tax refund checks that will only finish draining our Treasury. The only concern they have for the middleclass and poor is to drive them into further poverty and turn America into a serfdom and a rich man's paradise.
The GOP did not wait for the elections to cool off before they began letting the people who voted for them know their true intentions and real motive. However, why is that a surprise to minorities. White bigots have always clung to the notion that a black man cannot lead to bolster their "superiority" myth.
I told Field, I needed a break because I was tired mentally and physically from having too much on my plate. My body was feeling the fatigue and aching all over from pushing myself day in and day out working on too many projects. This morning I was reminded that the Lord is my strength and felt a renewed energy.
When the GOP talked about death panels for the elderly, they were referring to themselves. Making cuts to the elderly's meager income and medicaid for seniors would be starving seniors to death, limiting their health care, and adding them to the homeless list is a death panel. Think of the elderly in your families who are barely surviving already with the income they have. Seniors don't get a cost of living raise this year nor did they get one last year to keep up with the rising cost of daily living. The GOP wants to cut the seniors basic mandatory survival needs. So, now who is the real death panel?
Those of you who are gay and voted for the GOP well...here is a little tidbit of information for you. In addition, here is an example of what the GOP really thinks about jobs. So, tough luck to those of you who are unemployed in Ohio that voted for your new Governor. To those who didn't vote for him it might be a good idea to start rallying up the people for a recall of your new governor before he does anymore damage. I"m just saying times are hard right now and rejecting 8,000 jobs does not sound like a winner.
Yes, I want President Obama to put his foot down and say NO to GOP policies. And yes, I want him to stop compromising with those whose only desire is to see him fail. Nevertheless, I refuse to sit back and let another black man be lynched by a modern day lynch mob. He told us in the beginning during his victory speech that he couldn't do it alone and he can't. He cannot fight those who control the media and money alone. The President asked in the beginning for our help and he really does need it. Flood the White House with letters to the President and Congress and let your voice be heard loud and clear. Tell your family, friends, neighbors, and people you come in contact with to the tell the President to say HELL NO to GOP I will not COMPROMISE ANYMORE! The people have spoken.

Questions From A Black Woman's Journey
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
