See who you voted for in November:  "For starters, at least 37 members of Congress owned shares in Comcast in 2013, and in the 2014 cycle 373 House members (out of 435 total) and 45 senators were recipients of campaign donations from either the Comcast corporate PAC or employees of Comcast. "

What is next.  I would like to say that the average American can go back to their normal lives, but the big fat cat corporations will keep up from doing so.  My reasons for saying this is:  1)  They started this mess in the first place; 2) their [the rival corporations] oppositions are "the white ifs" in life.  If I were to write a term paper in college with such mannerisms, I would get a failing grade.  3) Innovations disturbance as one Cisco representative has claimed is too weak to stand:  1.  If the ISPs are going to block certain things due to a monopoly, then they will not spend more money to update their infrastructure; 2. A monopoly is bad due to it has no future for growth--on or off line.  

By having a balance in policing bad practices of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and equal opportunity of the Internet traffic, innovation can rocket throughout the technology's future.  That will give new and powerful inventions for future online activities.  Many services we have today started off ever so small... barely making ends meet.  They are big online services today due to the fact their services were aloud to be opened to all that wanted them when the public Internet was young-- around 1993.

Ever since 1994 (when NAFTA became law), certain but not all corporations started a plutocracy that nearly destroyed the American economy over night.  To this day, we are still suffering from that point in time-- nearly frozen in time.  For these new FCC rules to really work, all Americans needs to make a stand as one people than mere individuals.  As time goes by, the FCC's new rules will continue to help us all regarding how new developments occur.  If we slack, then we reap what we have not sown.  These plutocracy corporations will not change, but we can control their destructive influences on us all.

#leonardnimoy #Spock #STO  For you fans of Star Trek and the STO game, here is something that you will want to check out.  Science fiction would not be what it is today if it was not for the original Star Trek, and that television show would not be around this long if it was not for Leonard Nimoy playing and being that Vulcan that said those immortal words, "Live long and prosper."  I cannot wait to see this in this game.  A legend of a man.  So us fans say to you, "Live long and prosper" in the new life existence you are in now.

Did I not read last year that people that sleeps longer have better health.  What will they come up next year?
You snooze, you lose — your life, possibly.

I am always moved and enspired by this song if not the whole story/game.  For the ones that have not played this game, please go to http://store.steampowered.com/agecheck/app/331470/ (not sure why us Americans have an age check, but one must to download it.  I assure you it is barely PG (USA rating system... YAWN).  Anyhow, it is the most enspiring game/novel I have ever been associated with.  Take a wonderful journy to a Pionier Camp in Russia (has English version) and have the most enligtening journey and literally come out a new and better person than you could ever hope.  One more thing: I have not been through ever nook and granny of the story's paths.  From the picture board, I have not come close to filling half of it.  Each journey through the story, you will learn more about yourself (at least I have).  Pleasant journey, and see you at the Pionier Camp. :D

Have you ever wondered about the ancient history of the Jedi Knights. Believe it or not, it is not as far away as you may think. If you do not believe me, then check it out for yourself with a crossover saga of Star Wars & Stargate SG1 right at your finger tips. I wonder if there ever would have been movies right here on Earth if these stories did not take place some years after? If you do not believe me, then read them for yourself. You might learn something from them in your own personal life. http://samcarterstory.blogspot.com/

Story

I am a frater phoenix
Introduction
I am a person that fights to win and never stand down from a challenge.  I have been to a technical college (1998 - 2006) with a certificate and three diplomas in the computer field.  Due to jobs overseas due to NAFTA, Delphi, the Koch Brothers, and all the rest, I am started back in a college since 2010.  I am under an English Major that is about to be done with my Art Associate in about 2 semesters (if fate will allow me to do so and I want to do so).  I am planning to take take a Bachelor Art degree in English once I am done with the A.A.

I love to write and would love to get a career in it.  I have written stories and posted up to 11 fan fiction saga of stories of a crossover of Star Wars & Stargate SG1 that I hope will be a good portfolio in what I can do.  I also have several blogs and write a diary/journal.  There is nothing I do not write about... even this profile.

I am not a big online gamer, but I do play Star Wars the Old Republic (as the only MMORPG online game), Diablo III, Starcraft II, Magic 2014: Duels of the Plainswalker, and a few simple ones that Windows 8.1 has for me to play for free.   I play them between the  raindrops of studying very hard in my classes at University of North Georgia at the Gainesville, GA campus.  Most importantly, I write!  I also read a lot too.  With collecting free ebooks from a service (www.bookbub.com), I can collect a good many genres and other books for several ebook software/readers. 

Believe it or not, playing these games mentioned has helped me be more creative in my stories.  Thinking and learning outside the box is essential.  Also realizing winning all the time is very important.  Playing Magic 2014: Duels of the Plainswalker has made me realize that winning is not everything.  Even in real life, if we keep on going, we will gain more than a winning hand. 

That is why I am a frater phoenix.  Frater is an old word meaning friend, companion, lover, or any other in similar respects.  If I stand tall when a fall in  life, I can be as powerful as a phoenix even though it is a mystical bird.  I am not!  Neither is all I have done to this day that makes me who I am right now and will become tomorrow.

PS.  If you have been reading my stories via Wordpress, please start using http://samcarterstory.blogspot.com/.  It is getting harder to update and not the best blogger services in my opinion.  I now regret using it for my stories.  Anyhoo, please use this link for now on.  Thanks :D
