Tru Robinson is a little girl seven years old who lives in a group home based in Dracut, MA.  Her mother accuses the staff of cutting Tru’s hair and telling her it would grow back straight. 

Tru is o mixed heritage and had curly locks and her distraught mother Denise says she was “assaulted and Violated.”  Her hair flowed down to the middle of her back and she now sports a crew cut.  Denise Robinson said, “Tru was assaulted yesterday at school and anyone who knows me know that I never claim racism — But why was my daughter’s head shaved?”  She then continued in a social media post, “There are three other girls in her class, two white girls, one black, none of these girls got scaled. Why Tru??”

Senator Jeff Flake, garnered the world’s attention when he defied the sitting president by saying delaying opposition to the White House is complicit in wrong doing.

In a brave speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Jeff Flack said, “We must never adjust to the present coarseness of our national dialogue with the tone set up at the top.” He attacked Trump’s unusual behavior over the past nine months.  The Arizona Republican blasted the president for his untruthful behavior and lack of decency saying, “We must never regard as normal the regular and casual undermining of our democratic norms and ideals, we must never meekly accept the daily sundering of our country. The personal attacks, the threats against principles, freedoms and institution, the flagrant disregard for truth and decency.”

The White House stopped federal payments, called cost sharing reductions as part of the Obama administrations Affordable Healthcare.  According to some insurance providers, the decision has destabilized the insurance industry with one company saying increases for 2018 is slated to go up from a projected 8 percent to 41 percent. 

The extreme increases will hurt consumers on both sides.  However, some states are making changes to mitigate the hikes the unpaid amount will ultimately be covered by taxpayers. 

For those people who do not qualify for state aid, would be required to pay the full increase amount.  For a guy worth $3.8 billion, no big deal, but for most Americans its bad.

Good Ole America --She never Fails to Incite

America the Inciteful

Roy, Utah, is the latest location in which a racist, who says he is not a racist has posted something stupid.  Kade Rogers a former Marine is exercising his first amendment rights by posting a divisive sign on his garage door. 

His neighbors don’t like it and are saying that it is offensive despite the complaints he insists on keeping the sign up.  Of course he is a Trump supporter, and has written on the sign “Make America great Again, Purge and Purify.” 

Rogers is cowardly playing the sign off by saying its Halloween and it has nothing to do with race.  But, wait, that’s not all!  How many times have you heard this one, "I kind of knew it was going to happen (controversy) but it's my right, it's not racist. I'm not meaning to be racist, in no way, in fact, I have a black friend. His name is Isaac." 

Cliché?

How bout Yogi Berra Day-- Why Columbus?

Yogi Berra

Columbus is said to have discovered America, a boast that has led to controversy and rightly so.  Europeans have traditionally celebrated this man’s voyage to the Americas, when in fact he was completely lost and served to single handedly kill millions of Native Americans in the process. 

We talk about genocide of Jewish people which was wrong and of others which was wrong, but this voyage caused the end for 50 million indigenous people in this hemisphere.   Europeans introduced small pox a disease ravaged the natives and cleared the land for others to move in and take over.  It’s a process that has been successful worldwide.

27-year-old Bryant Johnson, would not talk to nurses and doctors at the hospital and asked to see the towns president so that he could deliver an important message.   During the police interrogation Johnson explained the he had traveled back in time to warn Casper, Wyoming residents to leave or risk alien encounter.  He said, “to leave as fast as possible.” 

He wanted authorities to know, the only way he was able to time travel, “was to have the aliens fill his body with alcohol.”  Johnson fell short on his mission, he was supposed to arrive in 2018, but had a slight hiccup and landed in 2017 instead.
