Washington went Nuclear a Long Time Ago

All week we have heard the Republicans would employ the nuclear option to place Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court. The Democrats actually did the same thing years ago when Republicans refused to approve President Obama’s lower court choices. So this is not a dark day in history as pundits would argue. It has been a dark day in DC for years. The parties are divided and they refuse to work together. They are doing more investigating than legislating. It is not about us it is about them. Donald Trump promised to drain the swamp but what we have seen is the swamp has been replenished and that is in fact a bi-partisan effort.

Michelle Obama Rocking the Natural Hair


Michelle Obama rocking the post White House hairdo. Say it loud she is natural and proud. Why couldn’t she wear this style in the White House? Rhetorical question.

Mississippi State Slays Goliath UConn…never give up

Last year the UConn Women’s basketball team whipped Mississippi State by 60 points. So last night UConn probably saw them as a bump on the road on their way to the championship, but that did not happen. Last night UConn was beaten by a buzzer beater. It was unlikely but it happened. Moral of the story don’t underestimate your competition and never give up

Chicago has a killing issue, but they also have a mental health issue

The linked story is tragic. This mother watched her two sons gunned down and she said I want to kill myself. Too many people will see this as business as usual on the mean streets of Chicago, but somebody needs to follow up with the ones left behind and that rarely happens it is just seen as the police spokesman says “an incident.”

Does Truth Still Exist?

From the Woodlawn Villager
By Joni L. Reynolds
Back in the good ole days the truth was not a subjective concept. It was bold and emphatic and you had to agree with it. Black was Black. Up was up, and down was down, but those days are gone. The truth has become a subjective concept subject to individual interpretation. I can remember watching Oprah and her saying the guest was “speaking her own truth”. What is her truth? Isn’t it just truth? We now live in the land where everyone has their own truth. Absolutes are challenged and we see this everywhere especially in our politics. We have been introduced to “alternative facts”, which are facts that conflict with the accepted proven facts. We now have the ability to watch news that affirms our opinion.
The days of Walter Cronkite are so far gone he has been replaced by Sean Hannity and Chris Matthews. Each one speaking the truth to their particular audience. So, both audiences walk away armed with their own truth and ready to defend it. How did we get here and is there any way we will ever accept one real truth?
Over the past few weeks we have seen President Trump accuse President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the election. He had no evidence to support this information he tweeted to the world. This was his truth and he sent his minions and several government agencies in search of evidence to back up his truth. So far none has been uncovered, but Trump still holds fast to his truth.
So, we are left wondering where is truth and will we ever all be able to say in unison the sky is blue.

Who would have thought these three would be running the country?


Who would have believed that Donald Trump would be POTUS? Who would have thought his daughter Ivanka would be his right hand person in the White House and Omarosa would be working there to? Not me but this is what we’ve got.
