Welcome to the views of a real American liberal.
This blog features the random rantings of a Mississippi mad woman. Rush Limbaugh is the inspiration for this blog. If an overweight, fake far-right, and cigar smoking raving idiot can have a voice then so can an overweight, real far-left, and Wal-mart shopping Mississippi mad woman.
Occupy until all can no longer deny the imbalance on this planet. We are better than what we have become. Occupy.

I need to raise at least $1,300 by Wednesday afternoon to help get the word out in Mississippi that we have an election November 8th, next Tuesday. My goal is to travel the 500 miles from the Coast to South Memphis and all points in between to get the word out. The $1,300 will cover the cost of the newsprint, gas and Motel 6 Saturday night. I expect to be found at all Walmarts from the Coast to South Memphis and all points in between. I am not above going to churches on Sunday and night clubs Friday and Saturday night.
Originally I was planning to just do a voter's guide online, however; last week someone said something to me that shook me to my core. This person, well read, world traveler, and highly educated was not aware of the primary being over and Mississippi having the first Black to run for governor on the ticket of a major party. My goal between Friday afternoon and Monday afternoon is to put a voter's guide into the hands of at least 8,200 people. Crazy idea to some but no crazier than the people not being aware of the fact we have an election and the initiatives on the ballot.
As a staunch Independent I am not playing party politics but I am supporting candidates whom I believe to have Mississippi's best interest at heart. My goal is to give to the people factual information and my personal opinion on voting in this election. They may take the facts for what they are and view my opinion as my opinion.
If you can and are willing please donate. I have a printer who can have the guide ready for me by Friday afternoon if I can get the information to them by tomorrow. Thanks for your help and for your support. Everyone must vote. It is not right for 37% of the voting age population to make a decision for 100% of the people. Republican\ Democrat\Independents we must become active in our government.
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…
