Is hate the GOP way

It is official. The GOP strategy of hate for winning elections is bad for America. The GOP in 2012 has managed to alienate everyone other than heterosexual, protestant, six-figure salaried, screw the environment, war hawk white males. It seems as if the only vote that matters to the GOP will not come from anyone who is not male, white, heterosexual, protestant or making six-figures per year. The rub in the wound are the attempts to make anyone reading the GOP playbook aloud into a bully. We have watched, for over a year, racist, homophobic, misogynist, and pollution as solution GOP candidates cry foul each time someone shines light on the wayward logic of the party. We must end this stuff now. Most of thinking Americans have long come to the conclusion that the real issue with President Obama is his being Black. However, the GOP, circle the wagons, leadership did not stop the fear mongering at Black president. Homosexuals, the other boogie-man in the GOP closet, have been hit with a chicken sandwich eat-a-thon. Mike Huckabee led the charge to fill Cathy’s pockets as a tribute for Cathy’s willingness to stand on hate. Mitt Romney and the other GOP presidential hopefuls showed early on their view of the Latino population. Paul Rogers, RNC Committee Man of Arizona went as far as to condemn a meeting between the Arizona governor and Native Americans. Rogers wrote it was a dishonor to the memory of Custer. Is the GOP strategy really to alienate anyone they deem not worthy? I cannot say, however I do know to fight a woman is prelude to failure. The GOP leadership has continued to promote what has amounted to a war on women. Initially the GOP sent out the women to explain there was no war on women. We women outside the party are in hysterics. Yet, the current GOP VP pick voted against equal pay for women. As a woman and a mother, I need to be paid. My children enjoy eating well and often. Yeah, I may be just a little bit hysterical. If I am hysterical please explain the focus on reproduction rights for women. The GOP has done nothing but focus on the unborn fetus while telling current children access to health care and food will be limited. The shots fired every day by the GOP at women tell me we are in a war. The “parenthood” amendments dotting the state legislatures across the country were only spent rounds of ammunition compared to the cannon ball shot by Todd Akin. Hukabee’s willingness to pack the “legitimate rape” cannon for another round only makes it clear there is a war on women. Since “legitimate rape” produces no offspring, Ryan is correct in denying access to abortion regardless of the circumstances of conception. Are these people even American? Are they warlords from the Congo? Being of African slave decent I could truly make a few other statements on legitimate rape. The GOPs strategy seems to be to divide and to conquer. However, I feel safe knowing Americans are too smart to fall for such a campaign of hate and intolerance. http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2012/08/24/rnc-official-says-nm-governor-disrespected-custer-by-meeting-american-indians-130958 http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-07-26/god-and-gay-marriage-what-chick-fil-a-could-learn-from-marriott

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…
