AMERICA: THE REROUTE
Preamble: The Creator’s Diversity
The ones who hold the power tell the story. The quote went something like that. Make peace with that truth and let’s move on to how power can wreck a weak mind. When the King eats from the same soil and drinks from the same pond how then did humankind conclude that denying these basic truths could unify us all? How the realization of what power brings to those that possess it can influence human beings that are weak of spirit. When their spirit is enticed to commit acts of evil when those in power that are evil hearted require it of them. The Creator gifted his diverse creation carefully. The care he intended has been perverted by one race intent on maintaining their power instead of sharing it as we share the land, water and the air. America is that experiment. May I say it has never reached its full potential because she (Motherly pronoun) has never loved all her children.
Issue 6: Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!
My life gets better with each purchase and usage of modern appliances and city services like water, electricity and garbage pickup serves me well. Every once in awhile though life gets interrupted by inconveniences. What do I mean by that? Right now my kitchen sink went kablooey. Thankfully I don’t get frustrated anymore when that happens. Tonight as I was running water from my bathtub into a big pot to heat on the stove and pour in the sink for dishwashing I lamented being inconvenienced. Then something else came across my mind. I wonder if this is what my ancestors thought about chugging water back from wells to cook, clean and wash themselves. Maybe they just did what they needed to do every day to live a decent life.
That was all it took for me to let go of my arrogance of why I’m being inconvenienced. Which reminded me that I should be thankful and not frustrated by this temporary disruption of my daily routine. I still have the ability which I never lost to replace my kitchen sink and return to my normal routine in a few days. When will women and men wake up and understand that if you believe life is a joke ‘you’ll always receive the PUNCH-LINE’.
For Republicans this is just the beginning. Citizens current and soon to be I can accept being inconvenienced by things created by human beings because I know some of them will break down. The fact that appliances need replacement or repair is part of the deal. I’m an older Black man born in Birmingham, Alabama taught everything about human rights and how one race of people, White people, made all the rules which still is a recipe for disaster. Having rights denied or flagrantly squandering them are one in the same. Can you say ‘VOTE’ now anyone?
Oh, this is a good saying. Republicans make poor people work and keep them off of welfare. Name the last 10 Federal tax cuts and then tell me who benefited the most from them the ‘Rich or the Poor’? Oh, I see some lightbulbs going off behind a lot of eyes. Abortion is just the beginning. Interracial marriage will be outlawed. Marriage equality will be struck down. There are challenges to the 14th Amendment under way hint hint President Obama. The very nature of who can be a called a citizen will be challenged. Black people will again be 3/5 of a white man. It will be reinstated in the Constitution. I know this is radical, but I believe we’ll even have Republicans put up laws reclaiming lost income from purchased slaves that were suddenly freed.
So every voter in America can keep on ‘excusing by explaining’ the egregious nature of denying rights to women and men. I will begin my campaign today. Democrats are for the ‘FEAST’ and Republicans are for the ‘FAMINE’. Takers are never satisfied I’m telling you. I’ve come across a lot of them in my 55 years of life. Republicans are good at it because they have voters that excuse them. We have a saying in the Black community. ‘You slow you blow’ meaning ‘you either pay attention or you lose out’. Don’t whine and complain when every seat at the table is filled.
Looks like a lot of ‘whining and complaining’ going on in America right now. Too bad huh? You should’ve been paying more attention women. Women, you know you did this to yourself right? Keep voting for whomever you choose. I’m voting Democrats. I strongly suggest you do the same!
Oh, I’m sorry one more thing. I just can’t let this go without my two-cents worth. Now the United States Supreme Court denies rights because they weren’t written in the U.S. Constitution over 200 years ago? To take from the phrase a lot in the media are saying about ‘trigger laws’ snapping back into place denying abortion in many states. The United States then should ‘snap back’ to horses and buggies. Wood teeth and 40 year life expectancy. Here it is women I’m going to say it. Women should be treated as property again with zero rights and no control over their own bodies.
Oh sorry, Republicans already beat me to it.

Forgive me but I can’t finish without saying this. Women, why somebody got to tell you something is coming and it’s going to be bad for you to believe it? Women, why do you then get mad at the people (Democrats) that told you it was coming? Women, why everything bad has to become reality before you take action? Women, why do you think Republicans have your best interest at heart when they have shown time and time again they could give a rats’ ass less?
Why is why we’re where we are right now. Honestly I don’t feel sorry for a single woman right now. Again women have made this day happen, and I’m telling you this is only the beginning ladies. Why somebody got to holler at you to get you to listen? I’ve scolded women enough now I will offer solutions.
Figure out every candidate for office where they stand on women’s rights and spread the word through your circles. Don’t listen to what they say in the street. Look at their political party and how they’ve treated women as well. I don’t care if every joker running for office goes to your church put him or her through the ‘wringer’. Women I feel the ground giving way under your feet. Keep saying ‘aww it’s just a heavy truck passing on the road’. If you say so.
