Terrorism Devastation and Confusion

I really feel like something more could have been done to prevent this tragedy. I mean, for such a well known event worldwide, to only have swept the area once with dogs and for there to not be more police on hand just seems like poor planning to me. Granted, hindsight is 20-20. But when you have lunatics out there stuffing pressure cookers full of nails and ball bearings, you do need to be extra cautious. I also think that Williams is right in saying that the only way to truly combat this most recent enemy of terrorism is head on, showing strength in numbers and saying that as Americans we refuse to let something like this do anything but bring us closer together and make us stronger.

Is War With North Korea Inevitable?

With all due respect to Mr. Buchanan, I strongly disagree with his idea that we should pull our troops out of the DMZ and Korea. We have been dealing with this crazy idiot for years, since he took power from his crazy father, who took it from his crazy father. No one has ever held them accountable for their actions, so, like a spoiled child, he thinks he has free reign to do whatever he wants. As Buchanan states, if they decide to pull out their nukes, then Japan and South Korea will, which will cause China to do the same. All of a sudden it's World War III, and there are nuclear weapons to worry about from everywhere. If we don't stop this now with the American military force being as strong as it is, then will anyone be able to?
I find it staggering that the government is one of the largest financers of campaigns in politics today. I always assumed that there was something coming in from the Parties, but the actual government? Something seems a little fishy there. Also, the fact that of the 15 top contributers since 1989, 12 have been exclusively to Democrats and 3 are about equal to both. Where are the people who provide the wealth for the Republicans? Oh, that's right, they're running for election! The last few elections it seems to be evening out a bit with contributers such as Wal-Mart funneling money to the Republicans, and I am all for the private investors supporting the candidates, but for the government to get involved is, I feel, a step too far.
Wow. Almost two years after this was written, and the basic premise still stands. President Obama won the reelection, Romney did catch fire in the primaries, and the economy has crashed farther than anyone could have thought. Unemployment has finally begun to decine from it's highpoint of 10% in 2009 to the 7.7% it's at today, and the country is at a staggerring 16 billion dollars. A poll from pollingreport.com shows that as of february of 2013, 59% of people polled believe that the country is heading in the wrong direction. If the predictions made in this article could have come true like they did based on those polls, what is our country in for in the years to come?

State of the Union: Failure

He says he wants to make a "cut" in the national deficit. His idea of a cut is a lowered increase than originally proposed, not an actual cut. He also expects an increase in minimum wage among the lowest paid section of society to be the cure for the bad economy. This after the unemployment rate is already higher. How will that help create even more jobs?

I find it very amusing that people still even pay attention to the State of the Union address. It's always the same thing: the President coming out and saying what he basically hopes to accomplish over the next year. The party that he represents all approve of his speech and the opposite party begins the bashing. This being said, President Obama needs to start becoming accountable. He continues to make promises on situations on which he has no control over and "asks" for Congress to aid him. What is he prepared to do himself? When is he going to start fixing the economy, alleviating some of our debt, lowering the unemployment rate? When are we going to start seeing some of this "change" he promised was for the better way back when?

Republicans Want the 49ers to Win

As a fan of the NFL, I have never heard of something so ludicrous. A team's fans usually consist of people with ties to an area, and on the off chance that there are no ties, there is a connection to that team at some point, be it a favorite player or they liked the colors as a kid or a parent who liked them. The fact that more Republicans are rooting for the 49ers is probably just coincidence. Especially when you consider that California, one of the biggest states in America, is a mainly Democratic state. Wouldn't you think that, with that being said, more Democrats would be rooting for the 49ers? Also, the 49ers have been in existence a lot longer than the Ravens, so maybe that explains why more people in general are rooting for them.
