Still I shall Occupy

It is early AM. I awaken early because of a dream of being arrested without just cause.

News reports of people being arrested and beaten in other states #occupywallstreet fill my twitter and Facebook accounts.

This protest will be one where I shall not bring my son. I prepare for arrest though I have no plans to break any laws.

The more we know the more we grow into understanding our rights as citizens. When we sit back and allow others to tell to us our rights we loose them.

Occupywallstreet is important and it is important that we do not stop. We must continue to occupy. No matter the beatings. No matter the detainment. We must stand for our economic rights.

We need universal healthcare in America.
We need our transportation and information infrastructure upgraded.
We need to improve our public education system to compete on the works level.
We need ease in leading to the real small business owners.

I occupy for a better America.

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…
