Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President I wanted to take a moment aside to write how incredibly grateful I am for your time as President. Listening to the State of the Union this past Tuesday was a truly moving experience, and as I listened to you describe the millions of jobs we’ve earned, the powerful combination of diplomacy…

Paris

I have waited a bit before posting any sort of reaction to the attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015. This is partially for selfish reasons; I did not want to sound overtly angered and I wanted to have all the facts in front of me before this turned into an all-out rant. This was…

NSA And The Year People Wouldn’t Stop Badgering Them About Phones

It could be a novel. The publicly waged battle between the NSA and privacy firms everywhere has permeated into every facet of our world, and no one is left untouched. The Germans and Brazilians call foul play on our government while the American people are divided on whether it’s really necessary.

Quick Short on Cross Border Cooperation

Not sure if this wets anyone’s tongue, but I ended up writing a quick ~500 word abstract about Cross Border Cooperation, and I mean… it’s not terrible (somehow). If you’re into that nonsense, you should go for it !

Dear Government,

I’m not talking just Republicans, just Democrats. And I’m not limiting this to just Congress, The Executive Branch has it’s own problems that have in some way or another led to this shutdown. Admittedly yes, it’s hard to connect with such issues while having the time of my life abroad. But every article I read…

It’s time we talked about Egypt.

Egypt has always been a hotspot that breeds trouble. Whether it’s the ousting of presidents or the riots that alternate between horrifying and liberating, it’s a wonder, to me at least, that Egypt is still standing.

Obama and Syria: A Match Made in Heaven

The country falling and the president who “brought us back” from the worst recession since the Great Depression: it’s no surprise that we’re beginning to rear towards action. People will scream about isolation, and others will give their support to unequivocal military support to the rebels – but when it comes down to the line,…

Next Left: Dystopia Central

Maybe it’s the massive amount of current events news I’ve been reading, or perhaps it’s the ever increasing amount of free time I’ve had to mull over the world without work to tide me over- but as summer is reaching its end, I keep seeing a vaguely disturbing and rightening dystopia in our very near…

Morals and Politics

I suppose this is my official apology for the rant that just happened in that last post. I don’t usually burst into rhetoric, but all the same- it’s good to get that kind of nonsense off your chest. I’m going to continue with this whole current affairs business – because it’s been quite fun and…

Awkward “By Accident” Rant about Terrorism

So before I even get started writing what I want to write, I want to apologize. It has been quite a few weeks (even a month in there, I imagine) since I’ve taken the time to write this. While I know there are few to none readers, it still makes me feel guilty that I…
