If anyone doubted Vladimir Putin when he said that his only goal in Syria was to crush the opposition to Assad, the latest military strikes should clear that up. Russia’s intention would be questionable if we thought it was there to do anything else other than keep Assad in control. However, he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
In the whole scheme of things, candidates will get powerful endorsements from big-name pundits, politicians, and publications. We’re not one of those powerful publications at all with monthly traffic in the tens of thousands. That’s the point. That’s where Ted Cruz needs to get endorsements – from the nameless, faceless nobodies who scream at the top of our puny voices that we’re truly sick of Washington’s games, liberal rhetoric, and the Republican Establishment’s impotence.
I’ll admit it. I’m addicted. I have political speeches ringing in my ears through YouTube almost as much as I have Bible verses playing. While I rarely watch TV, I’m usually listening to something political, newsworthy, or Biblical.
Remember the days when computers came with virtually no hard drive space by today’s standards? We thought there could never be a larger amount of space offered, and every year since then, computer companies have kept it pushing with what is offered as standard hard drive space. It’s not unheard of to see laptops offered with multiple terabytes of hard drive space, where a gigabyte was unusual in the past. However, the technological revolution has made the standard hard drive a thing of the past as well. It’s a powerful ode to how everything moves forward in our rapidly changing world.
It’s always hard to fault people when their hearts are in the right place. Most of the actions taken by the Oklahoma government that pertained to erecting and fighting to keep it at the Capitol were done with proper motives, but the strategy they’ve used has been a series of follies that have resulted in multiple victories for the opposition.
Sometimes having a lot of options is a good thing, and sometimes it’s a bad thing. There are times when too many choices leaves us with a difficult decision because there is too much of a good thing, and other times when none of the options are all that great, and we’re forced to be frustrated with going elsewhere or being satisfied with a mediocre product. When it comes to Toyota’s class of vehicles, there is never going to be the case that you’re left having to choose a lackluster vehicle, as Toyota’s standards are always exceptional.
When a deal as secretive and important as the Trans-Pacific Partnership comes around, everyone wants to chime in on its merits and shortcomings. At this stage, opinions based on speculation and principle are invalid. We don’t know what we don’t know.
Torture. Rape. Crucifixion. Beheading. These are topics that make headlines in the United States if they’re perpetrated by anyone other than the Islamic State and anywhere other than the Middle East. Americans and other nations have grown so accustomed to the extreme levels of persecution against Christians by ISIS that it doesn’t even warrant a mention in major publications.
If you ever want to make a post that’s unpopular, tell supporters for six of the seven top candidates that they’re not going to win. That’s the price of political commentary. You’re always going to make more people upset than happy.
This is the story of a very rich man who decided to get into something with which he had no experience. He was determined to win by insulting his competitors, using his business success as the basis for the move, and by throwing out ideas that sounded great to the layman.
