Are we now Egypt

We must wake-up people before it is too late for our nation.

Recently on the History Channel I watched a show about the old west, “Cowboys and Outlaws”. The premise of the show was about cattle barons in Wyoming killing homesteaders. The show’s highpoint, in my view, was the description of how the cattle barons hired gunslingers from Texas to kill homesteaders. A local sheriff decided after the death of two homesteaders to not allow the gunslingers to kill anymore homesteaders. However, one of the gunslingers was able to get word to then President Harding who sent out the cavalry to rescue the gunslingers from the hands of the sheriff.

As I watched the show, I thought how history often repeats itself when people choose not to learn from history. I look at the current position of our nation. Those who have power to alter our path for the best choose not to do so. In fact they choose to do the bidding of their corporate sponsors to ensure limit access to the American dream.

The latest effort to limit the power of the people by those in power is to reduce control of Congress to 12 people. How is it we have allowed our country to concentrate power in the hands of only 12 out of the 535 elected officials?

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…
