And then J&J had Gwen doing nothing in the final season.

Yeah, I dislike a lot of the ways they wrote Gwen. I honestly think Angel being such a good actress is what made me love Gwen, because a lot of  the times the writers did nothing with Gwen. 
When Arthur banished Gwen, I thought I was finally going to see a story-line for Gwen that was more about her and less about Arthur but that never happened. 

I was more angry that she spent the final season being under Morgana’s spell, and then it took Merlin’s love to free her. It would have been a touching moment had I not been so freaking angry at how little they gave her to do, while the writers pandered to a fandom that would rather see Arthur with another man than with a black woman.

I hated, hated that. I had no problem with them putting her under Morgana’s spell the first time but I didn’t like the execution of it at all. And after that, it became too much. I love, love Arthur/Merlin’s relationship, but I do agree with you that the writers should have giving her and Arthur more to do. There were times when I thought the writers regress Arthur and his relationship with Merlin, just so that they could create a story line that didn’t make much sense.
All the actors were fantastic, especially Angel and Colin. There were times when I would be angry with Merlin because of a decision he made and crying with him at the same time because of how Colin played him. But the writing didn’t live-up to the actors talent. The scene between Bradley and Angel when Arthur confronted Gwen about kissing Lancelot made me realize how much the mess-up writing was holding them back from showing us the full range of their acting talent.  

Oh totally the bolded! I was so heartbroken  for both of them. Arthur forgave her, but he never discovered that she’d been under a spell did he? I was so mad at that because he should have found out somehow.

Neither Arthur or Gwen ever knew the truth of what happened and I hate that.

Stahp it!

She did good.  She had the dress and date, all she needed was the man.

And the man had been there for 4 yrs according to their Rep. 

But in her defense, the day was also her husband’s birthday according to his father.

yeah it was his b-day as well. Like all I can say is at least she knew him. I mean it work for J.Lo for like 7 years, it could work for her.

I hope it works out for her.

We both wanted different things, in the end.

Morgana always had a lot to do, she was involved in every nefarious plot against Arthur, while Gwen sat on the throne under her spell.

My problem with how they wrote Morgana was that almost everything they had her do were stupid and the transformation of her becoming evil so fast didn’t make sense to me because they didn’t take the time to develop that story-line.

Basically Morgana was always involved because they needed her to always be going after Arthur, so that Merlin can keep saving Arthur.

Rick Perry sending up to 1,000 National Guard troops to further militarize borderlandsJuly 23, 2014
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) announced plans on Monday to send up to 1,000 National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, saying they will bolster security efforts to prevent criminals from taking advantage of the current crisis there.
"I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor," he said at a press conference. "We are too good a country for that to occur."
The number of unaccompanied minors crossing the border illegally has increased rapidly, with more than 57,000 apprehended by border patrol agents since the beginning of October 2013. Most are coming from Central America, and officials say they often turn themselves in to border agents rather than evading them.
Perry and other Republicans have said National Guard troops at the border could help deter children from crossing illegally and aid with efforts to care for them once they’re in the government’s custody. The Monitor and Bloomberg News first reported Perry’s plans on Monday morning.
Texas officials said the effort will cost about $12 million per month. The state plans to bill federal officials for the costs they incur.
"Texans are willing to put boots on the ground, but we expect Washington to foot the bill," said Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who is running for governor as a Republican.
President Barack Obama said after meeting with Perry earlier this month that he was open to deploying National Guard troops, but he has not yet done so.
In response, Republicans have urged the states to go it alone. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) announced a resolution last week to support the constitutional authority of governors of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California “to take action to secure the international border of the United States within their States.” Twenty-six fellow GOP House members signed on to the resolution as original co-sponsors.
Perry and fellow officials focused on criminals crossing the border illegally rather than the unaccompanied minors. He said “the plight of” the children was rightly attracting attention, but said criminals were exploiting the tragedy as border patrol agents are distracted from other duties.
"The price of inaction is too high for Texans to pay," Perry said.

Fuck Rick Perry. Fuck your borders. Fuck your National Guard. All are welcome in the borderland. 
Our border existence must mean resistance!
