Weigh In Here to Save WriterBeat

I hate goodbyes.  If you want Autumn to stick around, if you want Stone to stick around, say so or just click the "Like" button.  It's ridiculous that unsavory characters can sully this site and its great members so far to destroy the construct entirely.  Well, I'm pissed off about this.  I use WriterBeat as a platform and I'll be damned to have the rug pulled out from under me by some adolescent barking.   Should Autumn temporarily moderate WriterBeat?  Should she ban the characters who abuse the site and its members?  How can we save WriterBeat?  We can't let Autumn just drop and abandon all of this.

Why Should Women Bother Showing Up?

Goodbye Writer Beat

I’m sorry but my involvement with the Writer Beat endeavor is officially no more.  The ugly truth about the site is that nearly all of our users are the product of my behind the scenes personal outreach efforts.  In the beginning that was to be expected, but it’s been four year…

Thank Heavens for Good sense in The Netherlands

I am so pleased that the recent elections, in The Netherlands, have put to rest the consideration, contemplation and possibility that a right wing party headed by a person whose only remit is to eliminate Islam from the country, have made clear that extremism, nationalism and xenophobia is not on th…

Moral Tyranny . . . Again?

What does it means to be human?

So as the title says, what does it mean to be human?         We all start out in the same way, a tiny creation formed by our parents during a moment of sex, sometimes we are created out of love and sometimes we are a horrible unintended accident, but no matter if you were wanted…

Stay Free And Responsible, Writer Beat!

I’m breaking the rule about posting while I have an article in the top 23, but the situation is such that it seems necessary. Guys and gals, WB has a storm raging in its tea cup and we’ve got to calm the waters before we’re forced to go to places where we are censored worse than th…

What Do You Know?

Unless you are a teenager or were recently educated, the answer might be, not much.  Half of what you think you know may not be true.It was a common fact when we were kids that dinosaurs were cold-blooded.  Evidence today indicates that at least the larger dinosaurs were likely…

Payback is Sweet

Censorship, good and bad

Considering the recent news on WB and in general with society as a whole I wanted to address the issue on my own terms.   Is Censorship good or bad?  Well as most would agree it is a complicated topic, filled with a lot of problems and traps to go with it.  Any time you alter or restr…

School Vouchers Cannot FIX Education

School vouchers seem a great answer to the problem of bad education, applying the capitalist system to education. However, it cannot work as currently attempted.One problem in education is the way subjects are taught. In the 1950s New Math was introduced and it failed. In the 1960s Sight Readi…

ABORTION: The good old days.

When I was a teenager, Abortion was a felony in New York, and doctors who performed it, were guilty of manslaughter. There was no Planned Parenthood, and girls had no where to go for advice. Some were fortunate enough to have parents or church, or school councilors they could trust, but many only h…

False conceptions about conservatives

The most common gripe I hear from liberals/Democrats regarding conservatives/Republicans is disagreement with our stance on social issues.  The problem is that most of what they have been led to believe by the media and their Party elites is false.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but the l…

Automation v. Immigrants (Jobs Fake-Out)

Job loss for U.S. citizens is NOT actually due to Automation.  Job loss is NOT due to Immigration either.  But the conglomerate businesses and tycoons want to plant that idea of automation-vs-immigrants in your head as does the elitists and intellectuals.  They have set the strawman,…

Why Is This A Story?

First of all I'm no huge supporter of Trump so far.  However, why did the corporate shrills at MSNBC think they had a story with 2 pages of Trump's 2005 tax return.  Trump paid over $38 million in federal taxes on $153 million in income, an effective tax rate of about 25%.  As other m…
