Black women face numerous challenges in U.S. society that cause distress and have been linked to mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and body image issues. Beyond the universal stressors of everyday functioning, distress caused by insidious social forces such as racism, sexism, and economic injustice make the preservation of mental health a difficult if not impossible task for many Black women.

The primary reason I do this blog is to spread factual truth about President Barack Hussein Obama, and I reblog post that speak to this mission I have undertaken. The reason I am alive right now is to get Barack Hussein Obama a second term. I will be successful.

The Ultimate Mitt Romney Flip-Flop Collection
Know someone who needs to see video proof? Many of Mitt Romney's flip-flops all in one video. Video compiled with clips from interviews, news, public appearances, and more. IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE FAIR USE ACT.
Republican presidential political candidate and former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney has been known to say one thing...and then say another.
Romney got busted!
How desperate is this guy buying Twitter followers?
This is the same mindset that makes him believe that he can buy the presidency...PoliticusUSA
Something strange is going on with Mitt Romney’s Twitter account. It looks like the Romney campaign is using the Colorado shooting as a distraction to hide their buying 100,000 new Twitter followers.
"BAMA" Oil Painting: 16 x 20
"This piece is inspired by the masking or make-up of politics. To always show a person of leadership joyous and heroic is unrealistic. I aim to show a man leading a nation divided by various ideologies. The intense color of the background makes the lone president monumental as is his responsibility."

I'd like to preface this long tweet by saying that my passion comes from my deepest sympathy and shared sorrow with yesterday's victims and with the utmost respect for the people and the police/fire/medical/political forces of Aurora and all who seek to comfort and aid these victims.
This morning, I made a comment about how I do not understand people who support public ownership of…
There’s nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it – it’s strategic. It’s more powerful than bombs. It’s more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. The story starts in the White House, where Monsanto often got its way by exerting disproportionate influence over policymakers via the “revolving door”. One example is Michael Taylor, who worked for Monsanto as an attorney before being appointed as deputy commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1991. While at the FDA, the authority that deals with all US food approvals, Taylor made crucial decisions that led to the approval of GE foods and crops. Then he returned to Monsanto, becoming the company’s vice president for public policy.
The dismantling of our democracy, and the take over of governments by corporations is happening here and in other countries. I believe the goal is to virtually enslave the 99.9 percent of the world. Not with chains and shackles but by a class system, that will manifest through taking away of our most basic rights and democracy itself. Corporations newest tactic is through the use of Citizens United, where money can silence the voice of the wealthy, middle class and the poor. (The super rich, those few truly super super rich will benefit from this play for dominance. In my view there is a power play happening and one faction of the super rich is trying to thwart it. Okay now I do sound crazy but I think there are corrupt super rich like the Koch brothers and others and then there are the super rich like the Soros and the Buffets who are trying to stop what they know is occurring. Sounds like a bad script for a bad movie but I still believe it.)Corporations are using Emergency Management Policies to further strip us of our democracy. Emergency Management in the manner that it is being used as in Benton Harbor Mi., gives entire cities over to anyone a governor sees fit when a city is deemed in financial jeopardy. It allows this entity to break union contracts, take over pension systems, set school curriculums and even to dissolve or disincorporate municipalities. “Under PA 4, EMs, who are appointed by the governor, can “exercise any power or authority of any officer, employee, department, board, commission or other similar entity of the local government whether elected or appointed.” and as in Brazil to corporations.
I think everyone I know had the same reaction to Ann Romney's words...you people. However, I'm ahead of myself so I'll let the Salon article put it in context...Salon
Ross Perot suffered for calling black voters "you people," but 20 years on, we're all "you people" to GOP elitists
Are we allowed to criticize Ann Romney yet? I have a call into Hilary Rosen, but she hasn’t gotten back to me.
