Trump: "We’re not going into Syria"
President Trump seems to have put to rest fears that he was considering escalating the war in Syria. “We’re not going into Syria,” he said in an exclusive interview. “Our policy is the same — it hasn’t changed. We’re not going into Syria.”
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.
In Defense of Brian Williams
Poor Brian Williams. The MSNBC anchor is getting it from all sides, from the liberal elites who are appalled at his supposed glorification of war, and from the anti-elites, who hate everything that comes out of his mouth.
3 Reasons the People Voted Brexit
Although there were advantages and disadvantages on both sides I would like to explore the figure that truly suggests the real reason people voted leave on Thursday, 23rd of June 2016.
ISP's and Your Privacy
What does the law allowing ISP’s to sell your information mean for you? Before we get started, I want to be clear, I am a major advocate for privacy rights. Many times I’ve given my speech titled Privacy is dead; Long Live Privacy.
The Possible Future Events - Europe
The old superpowers are falling, new nations are rising, Europe is in political chaos, Northern Africa and the Middle East are facing revolutions, uprising and terrorism, Equatorial Africa and South Africa are facing famines, South-East Asia is facing new Wars and North America is in political instability. The nukes are in the hands of two very unstable men.
"The Butler!" Syndrome in Middle-East Politics
Before I was able to finish this piece on Middle-East politics, the US (or, to be more precise, the Trump administration cornered by the unveiled Russian ties) decided to shower the Syrian Regime with Tomahawks.
Into The Breach
Today, the world is that much closer to being engulfed in flames of violent horror. The match was lit by the United States where once again military action was taken. The aerial attack in Syria that Trump authorized is just another instance of governmental interference that has global ramifications. Implications that could very well be interpreted as an act of war without authentic justification.
Syria Could become Trump’s Vietnam
In a striking policy 180-degree change, President Trump launched a punitive missile strike on the base he believes launched a chemical weapons attack on civilians earlier in the week. This policy shift could lead to yet another neo-con sponsored war in the middle east.
Do We Live to Learn or Learn to Live?
These type of questions, the existential type, are the most controversial ones in most of our minds. We constantly try to elucidate them by looking at both sides and trying to decide which one of the two is better or perhaps more exact. But what if I told you that trying to find the answer this way is wrong?
