I haven't really been able to focus in on blogging lately. It's not that I don't have a lot to say. There has been plenty happening in America to talk about .
Yesterday, I spent the whole day at the hospital. My baby sister had a stroke, her brain is swollen along with a couple of other complications. Today, she was airlifted to Stanford Medical Center.
In addition, for the last couple of years I've been dealing with a lot of sickness and death of my loved ones repeatedly and nonstop lately. The ones that died, lived a full life. However, that does aleviate the pain I feel in my heart.
I'm a family oriented person who loves family, and I miss them. Our family is close knit. Those that live in other states, we keep up with one another through telephone and Internet. Growing up, we had our friends too, but we mostly hung out with family.
What I consider another traumatic experience for me is I let my daughter talk me into getting my hair cut short. Believe me after wearing my hair long for so many years that in itself is traumatizing to me. :) The woman cut my hair way too short for my taste. In fact, she cut it so short you can smell my brain. No, you cannot actually smell my brain and that is just a saying that I have. However, in the last few days I've gotten use to it and it is a sophisticated look.
Nevertheless, the world does not stop turning, so I am going to talk about a couple of things that have caught my eye in the news.
I was reading where some skinheads were preparing for a race war. However, what really caught my eye about this one is the fact that they were hoping to use deadly toxin ricin as one of their choice of weapons. Evidently, the mastermind of this plan is not very bright.
"The racists were training with AK-47′s, stockpiling weapons and allegedly planning to manufacture ricin, a substance the U.S. government considers a weapon of mass destruction."~~DailyMail~~
"Faella believed there was an inevitable race war coming and he saw American Front as being the protectors of the 'white race.' And he wanted to be ready."~~DailyMail~~
Faella, I guess it is inevitable if you're one of those who has been inciting it. Faella, evidently was not taught when he was a child never to start fights because you could wind up on the losing end of it, especially if you have the wrong motive for starting it. It does not always turn out like you think.
I doubt if any self-respecting female would give Peterson a first or second glance because he is a hateful, vicious, evil, and bitter man. Besides which, he is ugly as sin. Plus, he is Sean Hannity's puppet and yes man who wears out his knee pads for Hannity.
However, this is the not first time Peterson has had negative comments about women. Nope! He suggested once on CNN that women should be physically abused and one time he called women whores.
"How do we reconcile more money for bombs while cutting money for bread?" asked Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio). "The real deficit that we are dealing with here is a moral deficit, and it's time that we face the truth."
Paul Ryan will go down in history as an asshole who sucked up to the rich. Did he take out the part of that bill that benefits his own family? Starve poor people to feed greed should be Ryan's motto.
Granny has a solution to trim the budget. My proposal is that we eliminate the GOP Party out of Congress by voting every single one of them out of office come November.

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?
