Just Local

I spent a hot day in Mississippi chasing politics. I am lightheaded and filled to the brim with shit. Dems and Repubs both filled the air with rehtoric that would make nice crops come Fall.

It is amazing how we can remmeber mess much better than stuff that matters. In my sun induced heatstroked brain, I can only retain a certain Dem running for office based on his record. My issue with his record is it is a shitty one. He is running against a person with an even shitter record. I cold only shake my head. I am an outsider and cannot vote in the election but the results of the election determins how I conduct buisiness in the area. I am stuck in sweage and yes it stinks. Are there not any other candidates?

I left that event to take my liberal sunstroked brain to a GOP event. The only person making sense at the debate was a fed-up country boy. He said things that would not make him popular at any Tea Party. He spoke of going after employers rather than those who come to this country illegally. He also spoke of improving education without using vouchers. He also spoke of the fact that Mississippi gets more than its fair share of federal tax dollars. I thought this guy will not win. He was saying things that make GOP sheep uncomfortable. The other two candidates spoke of little outside of the Tea Party talking points. I was ill and not from too much sun.

When will we get IT? We are beyond talking points and party politics. We need to come together for real solutions. We can not afford to vote on single issues but must look at the whole. We must not be afreaid to call out our representatives when they fail to carry out the duties of their office.

I sick. I am tired and I am done for the day. I shall write more tomorrow. As for today, I am sick of politicians lying to the people to get a vote. I am more sick of the people who do not call out those elected who show no results.

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…
