Please don't do Koch

Quick blog posting.

As I prepared to blog about a troll on my Twitter TL, I took the time to read two links.  I was very disturbed by what I read.

The first link was about MS becoming a nuclear waste storage state.  My first response was hell no.  The state is too small to store nuclear waste.  We also border one of the major rivers in the United States that feeds into the Gulf of Mexico.  We as a state need to think on this $$$ making opportunity.  Sometimes it is best to go without than to make a little money.  Something the Koch candidate for Senate in NJ is preaching to single mothers.

 I was upset this challenger to Corey Booker was attempting to shame single mothers into giving up SNAP benefits.  He falsely stated there were no such programs when he was a kid. If he and his sibling received death benefits, after his father's death, they were getting a government benefit.  His mother did not do it on her own.  Some people fail to think of the Social Security death benefit to children as government benefit like SNAP but it is.   Amazing how this Koch works.

Koch did not hid their intent to PR people into accepting less as they, the Kochs, get more.  I hear people making less than $100K repeating this nonsense.  I hear people who have known the financial devastation of cancer say we don't need the EPA.  Koch has gotten their money worth in their PR campaign via media and lobbying of elected officials.  It is time for people to wake up in America.  We need to stop voting for corporate owned candidates who do not serve the people.  This nation went to war many years ago because of the unfair advantage given to corporations by the government (research the Real Tea Party).

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…
