Can Americans think about gun control after the Sandy Hook shootings? If you get annoyed by what you see, you blame your eyes

The school killings in Connecticut are a pure tragedy.  Guns and mental illness are not the cause, though.  Blaming the shooter or mental illness instead of addressing the problem of guns in America doesn’t make any sense. Fifty years from now, the debate about gun control in this country will still be alive. Blacks and […]

China, be proud of Liu Xiaobo: The eyes are of little use if the mind be blind

The Nobel prize committee has selected the Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. It is a shock in Beijing. Mr. Xiaobo’s fight for basic human rights and freedom of expression is very known for those who follow politics in China and the transformations happening there. It is a well deserved prize. As expected, the […]

The Media is Our Own Worst Enemy:  If you close your eyes to facts, you will learn through accidents.

Leaking US military secrets is unpatriotic. America’s worst enemy is its own media. The person who leaked the information is as guilty as the media who published the document online. For years, the media has been the source of information for America’s enemies. While the media — such as CNN — is an instrument of the […]

Sarah Palin and Mark Williams Are Right This Time: The eyes are of little use if the mind be blind.

Sometimes, extremists score good points to which people don’t necessarly take time to listen. Allowing the building of a mosque near Ground Zero, the site of the 9/11 attack, is certainly the most stupid, unbelievable decision that the city of New York can make. Is the idea to please American Muslims? Or to show to the world that […]

Bank Bailout and Reforms: If you close your eyes to facts, you will learn through accidents.

Americans are still very divided over the bailout of banks and automobile companies. Even economists are divided over the effects of that massive bailout. The best way that the American people can see that their government is in their side is for it to reform the financial sector. Sometimes Americans do not like to hear or […]

If you are dancing with your rivals, don’t close your eyes.

Despite Tehran saying its nuclear program is intended solely for peaceful purposes, many in the West believe that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons capabilities. Recently, Iran has accepted a draft agreement that calls for some uranium produced in Iran to be sent abroad for further enrichment in France and Russia. How the world can take […]

The eyes are of little use if the mind is blind.

The Nobel Peace Prize won by Barack Hussein Obama has stunned the world. For those who follow  international relations, it is not a  surprise at all. Obama is certainly not a prophet in his own country. Most of his critics come from the US. The criticism comes mostly from his political opponents, the conservatives who […]

Blind eyes see better than blind hearts.

President Obama became the first US president to visit the Buchenwald concentration camp in Germany. He reiterated once again his message to those who denied the suffering of the Jewish people. Seeing the Nazi ovens of the Buchenwald concentration camp in person dwarfs learning about it from a history class or from a book. You […]

One devil does not scratch out another devil’s eyes.

Definitely, Dick Cheney is succeeding in shifting the attention to be on him. This week he said that he would choose Rush Limbaugh over Colin Powell. It is Cheney’s right to choose one person over another. The media should at least give him that right. Today Rush Limbaugh repaid his favor to Dick Cheney. The […]

If you open the eyes of a blind man, he wants to go back to the darkness

In an interview in his hometown Wyoming newspaper, Dick Cheney said, “I don’t have any idea why people don’t like me.” It seems that the closer the Bush administration gets to leaving the White House, the more the “hardcore hawks” start their repentance. Cheney is the most opportunistic, greedy, self-absorbed, power-hungry, power-mad individual a republic […]
