Apology Please

Unlike my previous drawn out fantasy filled post this one is short and real. President Obsma's latest action has futhered divided his base. This base that elected him us made up of democrats, idependents, real republicans, and people who saw this country getting off track early 2001. In short Presudent Obama's base is huge. He was elected by a huge majority which was a mandate of how off base the last administration was for this country.

His base has begun infighting for he has yet to show that he is willing to fight for the change he proposes. When the wiff of an altercation hits the air he immediately seeks to find middle ground. By and large he was elected to fight. He was elected to fight the do nothing democracts elected in 2006. Yet he has done nothing much as have they( Harry obstruction Reid).

His base is fighting on the merits that rolling over is good or detrimental to the fiscal foundation of this nation. ( can you guess my stance?). My dearest associate spent a good portion of our conversation explaining to me how right and slick he was in the deal he worked out with the " turn the lights off" republicans. She even attempted to explain to me how the unemployed or more concerned with light bills than tax rates. I reminded her that I am unemployed, at the end of UI, single mother of one child, and have a child support order that is paid on a whim yet I am more concerned about the deficit.
Being unemployed is temporary yet our national debt if not checked now will extend beyond my time in the grave.
Not all Americans are as short sighted as the leaders we elect. Most of us endured much to reach our goals in life not having anything to smooth our paths. We are not afraid of a little pain to teach our goals. Unlike the prince and princess of Congress and the 10% of wealth holders, we are not afraid to suffer for our ideals. We do not need apologies. We need right action now to see us a thousand years from now better than we are now.

Why We Need More People of Color Writing Syfy

This weekend due to an enduring cough, I decided to binge watch Wayward Pines.  In truth, I actually need to binge on Game of Thrones but I shall save that binge($$$$$) for my birthday.  Let me not chase that rabbit for now.  Wayward Pines is one example of how having majority White writers of science fiction/fantasy continue to ignore the actual composition of Earth's population, the societal norms of those populations, and the ability of those populations to thrive outside of White intervention.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
