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.

The Digital Unification - Death in a Digital World.
Words sometimes escape me although I log unknown 140
char tweets almost every day of the week. The only word to never fail me is love. Love
is my response to all things. No matter how horrific my response is
I shall expound later my thoughts found in this short
missive. Last night, I learned someone
with whom I had been online gaming for almost a year was one of the five
officers killed in Dallas. As gamers we
don’t ask if your avi is really you or your government name. I play as a man of color for there is no
female of color avi. It is an accepting
community. We talk smack but our world
is the game. Our alliance is our family. We share bits of our lives but mostly we are
there to escape.
Last night, this player’s mother, understanding gaming
culture, contacted us to let us know her son wouldn’t be there anymore. We send
prayers to her and her family. We give
thanks she thought of us. We do keep tabs on one another and worry if someone
is offline for 2 days or more. We are a
This player and I had work together to slay dragons
and to steal cups. We had plotted how to
not allow our rss to be stolen. We
blasted the gemmers while owning to the fact we also had $$$$ to spend. Mostly we gamed to escape a world that filled
each day with hate like an addict filling his or her arm with a deadly
We were/are the dreamers. I’ve never hidden the fact the closet I come
to worshiping a deity is when I say Gene Roddenberry’s name. I hold to a belief Star Trek is real. Violence should not be our go to option for
resolution of our anger. We as humans
can love one another freely to evolve into beings capable of building starships
that move at warp speed. Food, shelter, and
clothing are no longer a struggle for any human. All of Earth has been formed into an agrarian paradise
with air made pure. Yes, I am a
middle-aged woman with fantasies.
If you find my fantasies strange or crazy as yourself
why. Why do you accept humans killing
humans as a norm? Why do you accept smog
as a norm? Why do you accept hunger as a norm? It is my view those things are
the abnormalities that are counterproductive for our continued survival as a species.
We need to rethink what we are willing
to accept as our norms.
Roddenberry has spoken:
question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates
faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes.
The human race is a remarkable creature, one
with great potential, and I hope that 'Star Trek' has helped to show us what we
can be if we believe in ourselves and our abilities.
“If man is to survive, he will have learned to
take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures.
He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of
life's exciting variety, not something to fear.”

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…
