Dick Cheney‘s new memoirs will be out very soon. They include some insights about the disagreements between President Bush and his vice-president. George W. Bush, at the end of his presidency, was a broken man. His reputation and popularity in America and all around the world were at a low. It is incontestable that Dick […]

If you climb up a tree, you must climb down the same tree.

President George W. Bush has broken his silence this week. He broke his silence not to repent the sins of his eight years as President but to throw his support behind Dick Cheney and the rest of his administration regarding the problems that they have created–especially the handling of terrorist suspects. President Bush hasn’t changed […]

Senator Arlen Spector has left the Republican party. Seen by many as a moderate because of his lack of virulence against Democrats, his defection was not a big surprise. He was not popular among Republicans who saw him as a renegade or simply as sold-out. His move showed his political realism: he cannot win a […]

You cannot climb a tree with one hand.

The infestation of the Indian Ocean by pirates certainly can affect the world economy. Somalia, a failed state and outlaw country is probably one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Guns and drugs are sources of revenue. Instead of finding a way to rebuild their country, Somalis are choosing terror as a source […]

A tree is known by its fruit.

The TV executive accused of beheading his wife in New York created his TV station to improve the image of Muslims after the terrorist attack of 9/11. Life is full of irony. He just proved the opposite. Islam is a bloody religion. Beneath the head scarves of women are the hidden sadness of abuses. The […]

When a dead tree falls, the woodpeckers profit from his death.

John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston were victims of an extortion plot just after the tragic death of their son Jett. Apparently, a Bahamian Senator and a paramedic were behind the plot. This is a kind of cruelty that it is difficult to comprehend. It is shameful to try to take advantage of a […]

It is by growing that the Bamboo tree adds new rings.

During the last debate, the Senator from Illinois Barack Obama showed his maturity and the better understanding of the situation that the United States is facing. Who could believe that a couple of months ago, his political opponents — within his own party and the Republican party — were saying that he was not ready […]

The tree that grows at the top of the hill believes that it is taller than other trees.

I watched the second presidential debate between Senator Obama and Senator McCain. I have to say that John McCain had a better debate tonight compared to the first debate.
