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.

Who is voting for Romney?
Recently I watched The Help. Tonight I watched Undercover Boss ( Checker's Burgers episode). Against that backdrop of working poor being used for gain by the upperclass , I saw the video of Romney speech to his donors. I am shocked at the people who are shocked by what Romney had to say. Romney has stated time and time again his policies that will benefit those making $250K and above. Romney has even chosen a running mate who seeks to take more public funds for private gains. Ryan's plan will turn social security and medicare into a private enterprise banquet for the wealthy (private equity fund managers).
If domestics and those working at the fast food chains were paid $250K then Romney would not consider them to be worthless. However because domestics and fast food workers can not live off $8/hour he attempts to shame these people in to silence. My question, when will those who have fallen for the "lazy people" "dependent people" code phrases realize Mitt Romney is not in your corner?
Mitt is more concern with saving money for investors than for those who actually break a sweat for a living. He is not concerned with 47% of Americans at the least. The sadder part of the the release of the video is the RNC's Chair statement that Mitt was not off target with his words. It is shocking to have the GOP come out of the closet dressed head to toe in disdain for the working man and woman. It is a shame our elected officials do not care about the people they were elected to serve. If you have less than $250K as your yearly salary, you really need to think about your vote for the GOP.

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…
