Get real Liberal America. We need more than #FastFoodStrikes

December 5th 2013 SEIU was able to stage a nationwide strike in the fast food sector.  Will Congress raise the national minimum wage? Hell naw.  Was the strike without merit? It depends.  If the people who took part in the strike don't write Congress to ask for a national raise in the minimum wage then the strike was for naught.  It also depends on how many of those on strike are willing to start new corporations.  It also depends on how many of us will become patrons of these new corporations that are responsible "citizens"; not takers. 

Yesterday, I setup a project on GoFundMe.  The goal is to raise money to start a restaurant  that will pay a livable wage to 12 full-time employees while charging current McDonald's prices for the food.  Employees will also have insurance coverage that does not come at the public's expense.  Let's see if it can be done.  I am asking for donations for this project. I need 100,000 $5 donors or 1,000 $500 donors or 1 500,000 donor.  Let's do it. 

It is one thing to sit on Twitter and talk it, it is another to actually walk the talk.  Let's walk it.  Time to do something.

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…
