Xmas War

When will Americans wake-up to the lack of a war on Christmas. Today, I am thankful McDonald's is open. What other religion in America closes the post office? What other religion in America closes schools? How many public schools in America have Christmas plays? There is no war on Christmas. The "war on Christmas" is nothing more than a construct by the media to maintain the numbers of those who vote Republican. It sole reason for existence is to create a victim mentality to increase the numbers of the Republican party. Looking at "Christians" in America under a microscope very little Christ can be found in the Republican party (IMHO). Knowing scripture and attending church become nullified when the death of someone without insurance is celebrated. There is a war on Christmas but it is not against the holiday or the closure of public and private concerns for the holiday. The war against Christmas comes when people give into the demands of Madison Ave and eschew the dictates of Christ to be "thy brother's keeper". Pepper spray for a video game? Churches debating if to have Sunday service because Christmas is on a Sunday? Where is Christ, America? The Christ of whom we hear so much as being the reason for the season. Would the Christ who has not asked for any war or wars to save Christmas, be happy with those who attempt to create a need for a war? Neither political party has a monopoly on Christ or Christianity. It is wrong for anyone to claim to be the sole holder of Christ or Christianity.

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…
