  1. Political Correctness and the Climate

    by , 05-20-2017 at 03:17 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    Among a wide swath of Americans there are several topics about which disagreement is not permitted; these include: race, gender, religion, disabilities, war, trade, crime, punishment, drugs, climate change, and a variety of other issues. The committee of political purity has looked at these matters and decreed that there is one single opinion permitted for these matters, and straying from the approved opinion is strictly forbidden. For most matters it is simply a matter of people with strong opinions ...

    Her shadow haunts her waking dreams
    Broken fragments of her soul scream

    Illuminated darkness hides the past
    From choices of a lot she didnít cast

    Bitter and broken, consistently abandoned

Opinions would vary, but there are certain characteristics that would be desirable and other characteristics that would be undesirable. If we look at those characteristics, then an answer should be that form that best first the desires.

  5. Incremental Change

    by , 04-29-2017 at 06:00 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    The news media just marked the 100th day of the Trump regime. There were plenty of articles, but they were somewhat lacking in content, because Trump hasnít done anything, for which we praise the Gods. We are not surprised that he has done little, because politicians seldom do much; although they like to make it sound like they did a lot.
