Greetings fellow Americans.

I must first boast that:

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”

They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed–

I, too, am America.

Langston Hughes

This Blog represents my opinions on various political topics and are not necessarily the opinions of  Word press.com, Google, Yahoo, Face Book or any other media mogul that might publish or print  any of these Blog publications. I do not necessarily agree with the opinions of the authors of the Blogs i might publish on this site for exposure.

I will not promise to publish all the opinions voiced to me via email by persons pro porting that they are Americans but to the best of my ability I will not discriminate with respect to ethnicity, gender,   political persuasion or religion.

I am not as politically astute as I will become  so if there is an article or opinion you would like to discuss, please refer it to me by email or refer me to that publication or article.


  • The goal of this Blog is to offer another forum for Americans to speak to how they would be governed.
  • To speak to what we think an American is.
  • To speak to the failure of our representatives to represent our positions and their failure to live up to our expectations.
  • This Blog format is another  platform on which to discuss or reply to issues that affect the people of these United States.
  • We will speak to each other with respect although we may not agree.
  • I would hope that we will not simply complain but give suggested solutions to the problems that plague our country.

I must agree with whoever it was that made this paraphrased statement: “…I have stared into the eyes of my enemies and I have recognized that they are us!”, therefore, who is in deed my enemy? As an American Patriot, what does it mean when we are called “an American Patriot”?

This Blog is under constant review in respect to format and intent. Our efforts in this regard will evolve for the better as I learn. I will share the platform as  “The Governed Speak”.
