The Years Of Living Dangerously
The years of living dangerously are now upon the world today. Untold carnage has seeped into ever corner of society. When you look at practically every major city around the world from Chicago, Buenos Aires, to Damascus, violent carnage is an all too frequent reality. The sociological shift in our society has given birth to a totally different, more unconscionable, uncompassionate existence where the sanctity of life has been replaced by an epidemic of violent carnage against man, animal and nature. Never a second thought as so many willful perpetrators of death and destruction continue to carry out heinous acts of violent behavior that have transformed humanity's existence.
An Open Letter To The First Family
Dear President Trump, Mrs. Trump, and the rest of the Trump family; I am not an American, but I am among your many upstairs neighbors, and I have to say that I'm deeply concerned by what you are all doing.
Peace or War?
Peace is a small word, but the gains would be unimaginable. War is an even smaller word, but has devastating consequences.
Lincoln A 'Tyrant' Like Hitler?
When it comes to comparing Abraham Lincoln to anyone, Adolf Hitler doesn't necessarily come to mind. In fact, Lincoln is often frequently cited as one of the United States most legendary leaders, while Hitler is rightfully considered one of the worst.
The, um, Evolution of Donald Trump
This time a year ago, Donald Trump was throwing red meat to the crowds with both hands at campaign rallies across America; their appetite as political carnivores helped power Trump into the White House. But reality has a way of intruding on fantasy -- to be expected when the fantasy depends on the reality to exist.
Nazi Propaganda and the Bandwagon Effect
To put it shortly and sweetly: Humans are hard-wired to get off on gossip. For anyone gearing up for a holier-than-thou response to that premise: you, my fellow human, are lying. You, like me and like everybody else, were blessed and cursed with our distinctly human need to be in the know. This nosiness might be thought of as one of the traits that drives people to seek community and be a part of a whole.

RCMP Pay Increase Exposed
RCMP PAY INCREASE: Baffling claims of staff shortages amidst a recession may finally make sense. The RCMP say they are making a "hard recruitment push" every few years, and the story is always the same. “Not enough qualified candidates are applying” recently however there was a new twist. Claims were made by the organization stating they couldn’t attract new candidates because the pay was too low, officers were being worked until they quit and the rate at which officers were graduating depot didn’t match the rate at which previously hired police were retiring or leaving.
Does Religion Affect Politics?
Religion. No doubt. No questioning. Politics. Always Oppose. Always Question. So why do these always seem to go together, why is it that many voters vote in favour of their religion rather than the policies. Why do Americans prefer a Christian, Jew, Sikh or Muslim to represent their state rather than an Athiest? If they do at all. Does a person of religion make a better politician?
To Jeff Sessions, With Love
Dear Mr. Sessions, I was born and raised in the great state of Alabama and most of my, if not all of my life you have been a senator or political figure in the state. I grew up on a farm in rural north Alabama, going to a small school with only roughly 68 people in my graduating class. I obeyed the states laws and I attempted to bet he best citizen I could be.
