    When you own your own home, are fully insured, and have a substantial amount of money in the bank. Basically, have sufficient resources and abilities to provide a stable learning experience for your children. Whether we want to admit it or not, conventional reasons are selfish; we need to change our ways of thinking. Our planets human population is growing without any regard to it’s life sustainability. Generally speaking, the more successful financially people are, the less children they have; which leads you to wonder why our government hasn’t worked to promote greater distribution of prosperity. Instead, government subsidies more children being born in poverty through welfare programs. Instead of paying people for having more children why not pay them to learn more skills; making them more likely to be successful and produce fewer children. We are human beings, we can be conditioned, this is fact; our current system conditions families born into poverty to produce more children in poverty. Like my mother said, “money talks”.

    There are no draconian measures that will prevent, or stop these occurrences; the only way to become less susceptible to this type of violence is for government to reform. I do not believe it possible, in the near future. Instead, I see continued deniability on the part of government to reform itself and the exercise of harsher security measures. In this I pray that I am wrong, President Obama’s commission to eliminate the deficit gives me hope; along with what I perceive as a genuine desire of Republicans to make the hard choices, for the right reasons. Instead of focusing on a life ill fated, we should work to prevent others from following suit by returning our to a government of “taxation with representation”.

    I’m beginning to see a common theme, every time something like this happens, “plausible deniability”. It’s plausible, that the decisions this man made in his life, led him to such desperation; denying any responsibility of government. It’s not the governments fault the economy failed, it’s not the government’s fault we have a deficit, and it’s not the governments fault millions of lives have been destroyed across the country. I’m sure many people know, even if they deny it, the theory of “chained events”.

    One circumstance leads to another and so forth, every human being is susceptible to conditioning, whether as a product of their environment or through other means. Focusing solely, on this man’s contribution to his own circumstance, is foolish and either the product of stupidity or just being dumb. The governments corrupt actions weigh heavily in this matter, and until we are open and honest about it, these incidences will continue and or escalate.

    I couldn’t’ be a party, to any party that would have me, I can barely stand myself. My philosophy on life is drink beer, flirt with women, joke with friends, and eat good food; except when someone needs me.

    Many people took time out of their lives to help me over the years, it’s just right to do the same, that’s all. I have no long-term desire for public service; I just want people to have the opportunity to live righteous, receive equitable treatment under the constitution, and profit from their merits honestly.

    No one should believe they must resort to criminal behavior, in order to receive justice or just a living. No one should have the right to oppress others or deny them liberties granted by the U.S. Constitution. No one should receive less than an honest days pay, for an honest days work; nor carpetbag more through false actions.

    The only reason I blog, face book, twitter, and engage chartrooms is because I have a knack for understanding situations that others are blinded too. The people have a right to think for themselves, their thoughts have value. If their value is not seen or developed, then it is the fault of those that represent them, not an admonishment of it. I categorize myself as the cricket on Pinocchio’s shoulder, a conscious for government. The people want real representation from government, so that they can go back to living their lives without fear of it being destroyed under the weight of irresponsible leaders. If we have the courage of patriotism and conviction of conscious, we will make the hard choices because they are the right ones. Our posterity will either look upon us as the “greatest generation”, or the “most decadent, selfish generation”.

    I think, I will become a “debt abolitionist”; because our children need to be freed from the “national debt”, that our corrupt government is imprisoning them too.

    The Hispanic woman was a Mexican-American born and raised in Victoria. Most of my strength, originated from strong Latino, Black, and White women; all of whom I have seen oppressed by men, period. A Back women that was my strongest inspirational influence, was "Phyllis" who lived on Lova Drive; who's church I attend when I was young, the little church near the baseball fields by the community center.

    The love she placed on her daughter, who was unable to care for herself; reinforced my resolve to stand by what is right, even in the face of the mightiest powers of this world. I owe a life debt to her family and many others for their love and support. If you want to do a story on Black Americans, then do one on the women. It is they who suffer so much, because while many black men scream racism, very few speak against sexism.

    I was told of Klan activity in the Bay City area as early as around 1987. According to the story, it was concerning a Black woman who moved her family into a white neighborhood, in a area near Bay City.

    Supposedly, the Klan surrounded a local eating establishment and demanded the woman come out, with officers monitoring a little ways out.

    The manager, a Hispanic woman, refused to allow it. Basically it was implied, that she said something to the effect “your going to have to come inside and get her, and over me”. Perhaps I was told this story wrong, either way I am forbidden to discuss it further.

    If there is research to validate it, or others want to come forward, that is their business. The Klan eventually left, I assumed because they did not want to escalate the confrontation, to include the lives of two minority woman.
