Twitter Special 2162012

I write this quick blog update in honor of someone in MS with whom I have been debating the last few hours. I have family issues today so I may not be my normal polictically correct self. Please read the links at the end to understand why I have the veiws I do. This twit fest started over my simple response to a question about contraception. I am of the opinion that insurance companies that cover viagra should cover birth control as well. I do not use viagra but I pay for it as part of my base premiums. Also, these same religiuos institutions have had insurance coverage of contraceptives for years. Why such arugments now? In America we have people, who in my view, are finding reasons, no matter how off the wall, to be angry with President Obama. I would rather these people come out and say "we hate having a nigger in office" than to continue to protray being without knowledge. These people attempt to hide their racial hatred behind seemingly on the surface plausible arguements. However their arguements do not hold water when placed up against facts. This discussion with this person has now gone into why KXL should be allowed. Given the person is a CPA from Mississippi State Univesisty, I would expect this person to know energy is traded on the open market. KXL will not lower the price I pay at the pump. I would expect this person to research how many jobs would be created, the length of those jobs, and who would actually be hired to fill those jobs. I would expect this person to research the origin of the materials for the KXL pipeline. I would also expect this person to know the number of producing land based oil wells capped by oil corporations in America. I would also expect this person to know that oil in ANWAR would not benefit people in Mississippi unless they owned stock in the corporation access the oil. All that glitters is not gold. America is not in the dire straits some would have us believe. We do have a problem with corporations controlling our government. Without additoinal commentary here are the tweets with the links.

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…
