Is Dick Cheney Dead or Alive?

May 3rd, 2012

Many people have views and opinions on the very hot topic of copywriting and internet downloads, but many of the people making important decisions on these matters at the governmental level are actually so out of touch with the internet and computers that they are really making decisions on something that they know nothing about. One of the most searched for news topics on the internet over the last few months has been the anti piracy laws that are being forced through just about every westernized government. I actually think that it is an absolute disgrace that the people making decisions on these matters have less knowledge of the subject than a football player would about HR Software. You shouldn’t be getting people to make potentially devastating decisions on things that they are not qualified to know about.

Ever since the two world wars the United States has undoubtedly dominated the world. Even when it is election season in US people all around the world would know about it and participate in it to some extend. There is no doubt that whoever sits in the Oval office is going to influence on how the world runs. There are many countries like China, Russia, Cuba, Iran, North Korea and India who would want to reduce the influence of America in the world. But it does not seem like they are going to be successful for a long time. However, it would certainly not be false to say that the dominance of America on the world, especially on the world economy is not as strong as it was just a decade ago.

A few years ago, getting online took ages. You’d sit there and stare at the screen for as long as five minutes until, finally, an image appeared. And there you were, connected to the world wide web…libraries of information at your finger-tips, an infinite reserve of resources there for you. If you had the patience to sit there and wait for it to appear on your screen, that is…

Jump forward to the modern day and most contract phones have the capacity to access the internet from almost anywhere in the world.

Should we really be surprised, then, when we learn that the newspapers have been hacking certain peoples'mobile phones? If you ask me, no, and here’s why.

…have you ever thought about taking a more detailed look at your partners emails, even if it was for an innocent purpose such as seeing what they are getting you for Christmas?

Is it possible for a country in the modern world to rely completely on outsiders for its national infrastructure? The Afghanistan army and police force is being set up with the help of other countries? Well, such institutions invariably require a large amount of domestic support and respect. If they are set up with the help of foreign forces, the issue of pride and respect automatically takes a hit and becomes a problem.

Of course, Afghanistan is a special case which was ravished by the Taliban movement. The modern western world is of the opinion that the Taliban movement has been bad for the country. However, there is a lot of popularity for the Taliban movement in the rural parts of the country. In such a scenario, a police force and an army setup with the help of foreign assistance will be treated as an object of ridicule.

This only complicates the already complicated situation in Afghanistan. The economy is in desperate need of new jobs. India, Pakistan and Afghanistan happen to form the golden crescent of drug production. In such a scenario, there must be huge emphasis on establishment of schools and other civilian infrastructure to create jobs and prevent youngsters from becoming addicts.

To ensure that the population reaches modern levels, issues like special needs teaching jobs will also have to be addressed. After all, no society can survive for long effect if it focuses on the majority and ignores the marginalized minority. When all these issues are combined with the sensitivity of political factors involved, there is absolutely no scope for a productive and constructive way forward.

To fight and to continue old enmities can only work for so long. Even the western world is beginning to realize that they may have no option but to get along with the Taliban if they are not in a position to destroy the same.

Where, oh where, to begin with the recent riots – a sight so horrifying that when she saw it on the TV screen, even my nan, who has seen everything, said “I don’t believe it…well I never…I’ve never seen that.”

Usually I would laugh or make some smart comment loosely disguised as agreement. Not this time. Because what I saw on the screen before me genuinely shocked me.

I said shocked, not surprised. If there’s one thing I wasn’t it was that.

See, this has been coming for a long time. You can say that it’s the fault of fatherless children, as the Prime Minister so boldly stated, but isn’t that a cop out? To my mind, this was in the water years ago. After all, we live in a culture which is obsessed with fashion and having the latest gadgets. So when people saw that they too could have access to the latest gadgets and get away with it, it wasn’t surprising that they jumped at the chance.

Last week, while talking with a group of people I didn’t know particularly well, I found myself entering a landscape of conversation I wasn’t comfortable in at all: the conversation concerned the twin towers and 9/11 – nothing new – but very quickly started to go in a worrying direction.

It started with one person saying how they need to ban Burqa’s. It’s the only way, they said, that we will know what we are fighting. Then another person chimed Read the rest of this entry »

Can Obama survive another term?

Obama has encountered a great number of challenges since he took office in January 2009, after having achieved the one of the best election results for a Democratic candidate in the last century. His biggest task has been the overhaul of the US health care system, which has been a longstanding issue in the country, dividing social conservatives and liberals. Former attempts by the former US President Bill Clinton to introduce a universal health care bill were defeated by intense Read the rest of this entry »

The Governor Jerry Brown has said he will be capable of reaching a deal on his tax proposals by calling on Republicans to support him. Mr Brown said people had to be persuaded and encouraged by developing a momentum and a mood in which people could face the reality of the current economic climate.

The Democrat is having to face a $15.4 billion deficit and will attempt to reduce this by raising income tax, tax on vehicles and sales tax. Read the rest of this entry »

Chill out in Florida

Thinking of taking a break in Florida, Sure, why not.
Staying in villas in Florida while on vacation is a pleasant alternative to staying in hotel rooms. Villas have more privacy and more room. They can also be more convenient than hotel rooms.

Travelers staying in villas will have private common areas where they can gather. These areas may include a living room, a family room, a dining room, a patio or a yard. Luxury villas may have private beaches Read the rest of this entry »
