Does skin color matter? However black or white a cow is, the milk is always white

What would I remember of 2014?  In America, Do #BlackLivesMatter?  Yes! The way black people and white people see life in America reminds me of the way people interpret the Bible: two pastors can read the same copy of the Bible but can interpret it differently. Policemen, in the eyes of a white man, can […]

US politics remains divided: A razor may be sharper than an ax, but it cannot cut wood

Bye-bye 2014, welcome 2015!  US politics has been very consistently divided, Democrats vs. Republicans. As a result, nothing is accomplished. What will I remember about American politics in 2014? The US Democrats lost their majority in the US Senate. Surprise? Not a big surprise, because traditionally a second term president’s party loses elections due to […]

History repeats itself: When weeds invade the land, it means the owner is absent

Middle East regime changes by the United States and its allies have changed the world forever. The US decision to invade Iraq had a pyromaniac effect in the Middle East.

Brat wins Republican primary: All rotten fish taste the same

Eric Cantor, the powerful number two Republican in the House of Representatives has lost the Republican primary to David Brat, a conservative Tea Party challenger.

Controversy over Bergdahl’s release: Sometimes you need to sacrifice your beard in order to save your head

The release of a U.S. Army Sergeant detained by the Taliban after five years of captivity has ignited a political debate about how his release was negotiated. We all agree that the Taliban is a terrorist group. Are five Taliban lives worth one American life? Honestly, the United States didn’t have any choice whether to […]

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 […]

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 […]
