On Russia and Crimea: A bad habit is like fire; you can’t play with it and expect not to get burnt

What is happening between Russia and Ukraine was predictable after the Soviet Union disintegrated. By invading the autonomous Republic of Crimea, a republic made of 58% ethnic Russians, Russia is moving toward fusing its people with the same culture and history. It is logical as long as it is the will of the people of […]

Rand Paul digs up old Clinton-Lewinsky scandal: No matter how far a man urinates, the last drop always falls at his feet

Rand Paul, the Senator of Kentucky, sees himself as the GOP candidate for the US Presidential election of 2016 in the wake of Gov. Chris Christie’s Bridgegate scandal. Good strategy or lack of imagination, the Senator is focusing on Bill Clinton. Why is Rand Paul talking about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky? The Lewinsky scandal is old. Why […]

Sharon dies: Fake your death, you will know who loved you

Sharon is dead. The death of the former Israeli Prime Minister was big news but not a surprise considering he was in a coma for many years.  For Israelis, Sharon was certainly a hero. For Palestinians, this man was the evil that caused so much death defending the State of Israel. Nobody is invincible to […]

De Blasio sworn in as Mayor, New York: If you close your eyes to facts, you will learn through accidents

The newly elected mayor of New York City has sworn in officially! Can De Blasio keep his promise to end inequality? Bill De Blasio’s campaign was focused on taxing the wealthy more. His answer to poverty sounds very simplistic. The loss of manufacturing in big cities across the US is certainly the root of its […]

Nelson Mandela dies: The death of an elderly man is like burning a library

Nelson Mandela is dead, long live Mandela! Mandela left us a great legacy. So much has been said about his life and his achievements, from a freedom fighter to prisoner to a statesman. He was certainly a true incarnation of Ghandi’s vision. Nelson Mandela, one of the greatest men of our time, was an inspiration. Here […]

Iran nuclear deal a mistake: A bad cook also has his/her share of the bad food

While I hate to agree with the Israeli Prime minister, who qualified the new deal between Iran and the West over Iran’s nuclear program as an “historic mistake”, I do. Iran resembles a naughty child in time out (embargo), who promises his parents that he will not be in trouble again. The world knows that […]

Health Secretary Sebelius must get Obamacare right this time: Success in life largely depends on how you handle your failures.

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) debut has been a fiasco. It is difficult to comprehend how amateurish the administration has behaved in dealing with something that may be remembered as one of President Obama’s biggest achievement. It is true that a child doesn’t walk the same day that he is born; however, this administration has […]

Don Yelton shows racism here to stay: A chameleon can only change its color, never its skin

Race relations in America have improved but still, the road is long for better relations between Whites and Blacks, especially in the Southern United States.  The comment by the GOP chair of Buncombe County in North Carolina about “lazy Blacks” on Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show” (that led to his resignation) confirms once again what many […]

Democrats learn from past, stay strong in face of shutdown: A child born under a thunderstorm is not afraid of the roaring of a lion

Democrats learn from past, stay strong in face of shutdown: A child born under a thunderstorm is not afraid of the roaring of a lion

The US government shutdown is temporarily over… until the next crisis in months to come. I give credit to Democrats for sticking together like fingers of the same hand against the GOP. The Democrats learned lessons from the great government shutdown of 1995-1996. John Boehner, on the other hand, repeated the same strategy that made […]

GOP miscalculates consequences of shutdown: A person who sells eggs doesn’t start a fight in the market

The US government is on its knees, still shut down by the Republican party, despite the outrage of the people. It is clear that the GOP has miscalculated the consequences of their actions. This shutdown is causing them more trouble than they anticipated. The world is watching and discovering the weaknesses of the most powerful country […]
