Listening Skills

I think I may know our problem in America. We are not listening to each other. After I got Vitter's message of "not listening to me", I got another message of "not listening to me" from Congress. I now know Stivers is not listening. It is ok if he does not vote as I desire but at the least acknowledge you have heard me. I do not think I shall "like" him on FB. I know, childish, yet I am ok with my behavior. Smile. We need to listen to each other with acknowledgement of one another's view. It is no longer enough to just say hooray for our side. We are discussing our country. At the rally Saturday we allowed a Tea Party member to say a few words to which we listened. Listening did not change me but I understood how he could hold such views. The House needs to listen to me, you and other Americans. The House needs to put aside the dictates of corporations. We must make them listen.

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…
