New Texas Gun Law – What you need to know

New Texas Gun Law – What you need to know

It’s no secret that support for 2nd amendment has been on steroids over the past decades. We’ve seen gun sales skyrocket, gun violence is on the rise and elected officials push the agenda of the gun lobby. And now, the conservative right along with their leader Gov. Abbott have signed into law, going into effect September 1, 2021 in Texas, HB 1927 that among many other items allow individuals to purchase a firearm, possess it and walk around with the weapon without training. For more on the new law we turn to Daniel Hunt Founder of Last Option Defense a Black Owned Business here in Houston, Tx. Find out more at @last_option_defense on Instagram.

RE:Student Loans to forgive ou pas?

RE:Student Loans to forgive ou pas?

With the newly elected incoming executive administration, more and more Americans are having conversations about a host of progressive ideas and topics ranging from racial injustice, immigration to climate change and we’re barely touching the surface. Student loan forgiveness is on the lips of folks too. A simple search online can drag up many articles and conversations about it. Heck, Moveon.org has an email marketing campaign about it so one wonders is this really going to happen.

Here are a few points to think about:

1) Let’s say if legislation works in the favor of the Democrats and a bill is passed and implemented if the opposition tries to overturn it similar to the Affordable Care Act they might get shut down. Why well look at the fight to overturn the ACA they recently got rejected because it more or less is working and millions of people have are enrolled. You can’t just take it from them.

2) Should the push be for a partial payment given the current economic situation or a full gesture? If there is a partial payment then people might get frustrated remembering how the other companies and industries were bailed in the past few decades including in 2020 and that reality could negatively impact the Left moving forward. We also have to remember that many CEO’s and others walked away with golden parachutes during severe economic downturns. This angered many Americans and we still see it happening today. It always baffles me how none of these multi-million and billion dollar companies do not have any backup cash or “savings”! Hey Man, where is your 6 months of savings?!?!

3) Another interesting idea to consider is does this come with a stipulation? Caveat? Condition? Some service that is none military such as public defenders, teachers, volunteer healthcare workers or something artistic too. Like maybe communication or media related work for non-profits, governmental entities and private.

Look, I don’t have the answers and I’m just an average grade of weed in the dispensary but student loan forgiveness needs to be discussed, our elected officials need to move forward with this and we must hold them accountable.

Meet Boutique Owner Yvonne McCullough

Meet Boutique Owner Yvonne McCullough

Boutique Owner Yvonne McCullough was born on August 30th, 1990 in Houston Tx. SEYVNPM was created on March 20, 2017 and officially launched in April of 2017. Yvonne got the burning desire to create a brand for all shapes and sizes due to the era of “body shaming”. 

Many brands focus on skin tone, hair texture, and size which; inadvertently tell women who don’t meet that criteria, “this way is good” and “this way is bad”; which oftentimes cause women that are in the “bad” category to overcompensate negatively ie. unhealthy relationships, body dysmorphia, becoming slaves to vanity to the point we lose focus on other gifts we may have to offer to the world, etc. 

Yvonne M and The 7 Minutes With Q Podcast

SEYVNPM is here to tell women you can wear this if YOU decide you can, nobody gets to decide how Beautiful you are unless you agree, you don’t have to be uncomfortable or go through any pain to be you! 

SEYVNPM is not just a clothing brand, it’s a women empowerment movement. SEYVNPM is here to assist you in fixing your crown, detoxing from society’s standards, loving yourself, and being comfortable in anything you put on. SEYVNPM welcomes all colors, shapes, sizes, and walks of life. SEYVNPM also wants women to know there is no such thing as “too big, too small, too tall, too short” etc. What one must understand is that these are individual preferences that have nothing to do with you. The most any woman has to be is who she is. Operate unapologetically in YOU because there’s is only one of you and the world needs what you have to offer.

Rewind: Recording Artist Guch

Rewind: Recording Artist Guch

“Louisiana native,” Andrea Clay discovered her love for music at the age of 5. Inspired by 2Pac, a liberated and educated thug, she began writing conscious and subconscious lyrics in 95. Throughout her childhood she turned to music like a security blanket and made the studio her safe zone. Initially “Infinity”, the lyrical whiz took on the pseudonym: GUCH.  “Infinity didn’t define me…I mean, the name was cool,  and of course I want my music to be everlasting but when my friends asked me how I was…I always replied ‘I’m Guchhh.’ Meaning..I’m good..nothing bothers  me.”

Digging into her story further, it became evident that in music Andrea really is Guchhh, unbothered. No matter the worries of the world she maintains a constant peace. In spite of familial hardships and unfathomable circumstances, GUCH has remained true to her passion.

When asked about her support system, the list was too vast to be listed.  Of course, her family and friends were mentioned, but she was certain to give all Glory and Honor to God for the privilege to be capable of converting emotions of herself as well as others through music.

Her personality matches her passion.  In her spare time she volunteers and works in her music.  She enjoys working with children with special needs.  This is one artist in tune with what matters.
