Respecting the Prez

NASCAR drivers not showing up after White House invite. This headline shows a few issues in our nation.

When we can overcome raciism long enough to fix this country we will be much better off.

I am now off to cut some tree limbs before Lee blows them into my home.

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…
