Gun Control and African Americans

As we continue to endure more frequent horrific shootings, the debate rages on about gun control. Should we focus on getting rid of high capacity assault weapons or look more closely at mental health issues. There is a curious history about gun control and how it was enacted in California. Ironically, California has some of the strongest gun control laws in the nation. Very few people are aware of the evolution of California’s tough gun control laws. During the 60’s the Black Panthers were professing their second amendment rights to protect themselves from a tyrannical government (Police) that could not or would not protect them. Does this narrative sound familiar to you? Read More http://recovering- republican.com/gun -control-and-afric an-americans/  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #1)

Tebow, Thomas lift Denver to fast 29-23 OT victory

Tebow is entitled to thank God or anyone else who he thinks is helping him. If you're going to get down on him, you should get down on the religious right who feel that the rest of us are heathens. Recovering-Republi can.com  (Jan 8, 2012 | post #1)

Michele Bachmann for President?

Michele Bachmann for president? As creepy as that sounds, there may be enough misguided Americans who could help Michele Bachmann in her quest for the presidency. The media constantly makes comparisons between Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin. While both make ridiculous statements in front of open mics all across America, it’s become obvious that Michele Bachmann is the more dangerous of the two.

Barack Obama

President Obama and Republicans

Pres. Barack Obama and Republicans have had a contentious relationship to say the least. In the past few weeks the American public has been inundated with the ongoing drama regarding the debt ceiling. President Obama has done everything except use bleach to gain consensus from the Republicans. It appears that they are dead set on no, no matter what President Obama does.

Popeyes Chicken - Race and Politics

Popeyes Chicken - Race and Politics Popeyes Chicken should be ashamed of itself for the degrading and tired minstrel show put on by the "Chicken Mammy." Ms. Annie as she’s called takes us back about a century on her chicken coonery antics. Believe it or not, the African-American community is divided on whether the commercial is racist or not. In some quarters of the community, the feeling is hey, “she's making money and laughing all the way to the bank.” This writer is painfully aware, that some people will sell their soul for a dollar; no matter what the consequences are.

Who is Herman Cain?

From all accounts the former CEO of Godfather’­s pizza is the embodiment of the American dream. He has come a long way to reach the promised land that all of us seek in America. This article isn’t so much about Herman Cain as much as the agenda of the tea party and the far right to use him as the anti-racis­t antidote against charges of racism leveled at the tea party. Mr. Cain is a conservati­ve Republican who was a host of a popular conservati­ve radio program in Atlanta. He was also a tea party favorite and is one of the few Republican­s who have declared his interest in his party’s presidenti­al nomination­. Whether this is a ruse or the real thing, it appears that he has gathered quite a following from the tea party faithful.

Blackwater

This story is truly sad. What about the hired killers from the "Private Security Contractor­" called Blackwater­? Remember them? They committed more atrocities in Iraq than you can shake a stick at. Somehow they got a pass. George Bush is a personal friend of the owner. It's appalling no one went to jail for their war crimes. Memories have a way of fading and it's back to business as usual. We'd like to hear from you on this subject. Full Post http://rec­overing -re­publican.c­om/ ?p=80  (Mar 2, 2011 | post #1)

Gun Control Solution

GUN CONTROL SOLUTION I’m literally on a flight back to Los Angeles from Phoenix , Arizona as I write this post. Being a native son of the state, I’m conflicted about the states position state's position on a lot of controversial social and political issues. In light of the recent tragedy in Tucson, I was motivated to deal with the issue of gun control or the lack thereof. As a liberal republican and Obama republican, I felt it was my duty to address this issue. As I transversed the streets of Phoenix, I couldn’t help but notice the ubiquitous bumper stickers that read, “Guns save lives.” Are you kidding - really? It’s sad that the gun control issue always seems to lie dormant in the background until there is another tragedy with a high body count – thanks to high capacity ammunition clips!
