  • Why I prefer Swedish women

    Almost every country leads the World in some single field. Tiny Sweden does not have the best cuisine on the planet, neither do we Swedes enjoy the highest salaries on Earth and Sweden could not, rightfully, claim to house the World's most beautiful landscapes. Italians eat better (forget about France, Italy has a way better climate for nearly every kind of food production and Italians are even more concerned when it comes to "mangiare bene"; eating well). Danes are paid higher wages than any other people including the Norwegians and the Swiss (but having traveled around some in Denmark, I...
  • Keeping the peace with Russia

    The Washington Post ^ | May 24, 2013 | Paul J. Saunders
    Why the hysteria about Russia? From the tone of what passes for policy discourse in Washington, one would think that Russian troops were massing on the country’s western border and that opposition activists were being executed by the hundreds. Some realities in Russia are indeed disturbing, but a sense of perspective is needed. If Moscow were really the capital of a brutally authoritarian anti-American state, things could be far worse — and profoundly damaging to U.S. national interests. But demonizing Russia doesn’t change conditions there and only undermines our ability to get what we want and need. Domestically, Russia is...

  • Fresno State student body president acknowledges he is an illegal immigrant, refuses to step down

    LA Times ^ | November 17, 2010
    Pedro Ramirez, Fresno State's student body president, is an undocumented immigrant serving in the position without pay. Ramirez, 23, attends school on scholarships and pays in-state tuition. California is one of 10 states that permit undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition -- a position that was upheld by the state Supreme Court this week. After his election last June, he told the administration he would serve without pay -- a $9,000 stipend -- because he could not lie on employment papers. On Tuesday, an anonymous tip to the college newspaper forced Ramirez to go public.

    ...the electorate is in a unique mood. Haley is viewed as the ultimate anti-good-ole-boys candidate, the outsider who shares the values of the Tea Party. Unfortunately, unsubstantiated and unproven charges of marital infidelity hit the campaign like a ton of bricks in the waning days of the race. One source of the charges in particular could not prove his allegations, despite his insistence he had 'documentation.' That proved to be false. The other accuser worked for the Bauer campaign. He has no proof except his own statement that he had 'an inappropriate physical relationship' with Haley at some point in...

    It looks like not even two scandalous allegations of extramarital affairs can stop Sarah Palin's candidate, Nikki Haley, in the Republican primary for governor of South Carolina. Haley holds a 20-point lead over Rep. Gresham Barrett one day before the vote. According to North Carolina-based polling firm Public Policy Polling, Haley has emerged unscathed from recent lascivious rumors simply because voters don't believe the gossip. "Only 13 percent of voters believe the allegations levied against her, and 54 percent of people just don't believe the rumors at all," said PPP director Tom Jensen. "The view is, if you can't prove...

    Children and teens love chat rooms. The problem is, sexual predators do, too. Parents need to wake up to how dangerous and just plain raunchy chat rooms can be. The anonymity of participants, unfiltered and unlimited access by virtually anyone, and the lack of parental supervision, make for a dangerous combination. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, two out of every five children ages 15 to 17 who are abducted fall victim in connection with internet activity. The way in which children use chat rooms makes them incredibly vulnerable to weirdos who wish to do them...

    Two presidential debates later, and still no comment from John McCain or Barack Obama on the issue of illegal immigration. With anxiety over the economy high, immigration has faded from the national stage and become an inconvenient topic for candidates, said Efrain Escobedo, voter engagement director for the nonpartisan National Association of Latino Elected Officials, or NALEO. Ironically, though, Escobedo said, the election's outcome could hinge on how each candidate frames immigration and how many Latino votes he can win in four swing states: Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado and Florida. Both candidates are trying to connect with Latinos in those...

    WASHINGTON — The State Department accused Caracas city officials of complicity Friday in an attack on the car of U.S. Ambassador William Brownfield in the Venezuelan capital. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns summoned Venezuelan Ambassador Bernardo Alvarez to the State Department and told him that Venezuela was in violation of an international treaty that requires the host countries to ensure the safety of foreign diplomats, department spokesman Sean McCormack said. The incident "clearly was condoned by the local government," McCormack said. Pro-government activists bombarded Brownfield's car with fruit and vegetables and a group of motorcyclists chased the convoy, at times...

    September 11, 2001 was a tragedy that could have been prevented had effective intelligence gathering tools been in place to allow agencies to connect the dots to the terrorists. President Bush has worked tirelessly since September 11 to protect our country from further acts of terrorism. The wall has been removed from the intelligence community and intelligence gathering has increased our security. Recent articles in the print media, specifically the Washington Post and the New York Times, have exposed classified national security information to the world. A world that includes the terrorist that want to kill Americans. The source for...

At its height in the 1970s, when Mr Flake and his brothers ran nearly 1,000 cattle over 200,000 acres of high desert, Mr Chidez was one of dozens of illegal Mexican labourers who would arrive each spring to grow corn and alfalfa to feed cattle in winter. Nineteen times, the US border patrol raided the Flake ranch, hauled...

    FARMINGVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - This middle-class Long Island community an hour from New York City and 2,000 miles from the Mexican border has become an unlikely flashpoint in the national debate over illegal immigration, with Hispanics beaten, harassed and evicted in recent weeks. For more than a decade, immigrants from Mexico or Central America have been drawn to Long Island by the prospect of jobs. Many stand on street corners in Farmingville, waiting for contractors, landscapers and others to offer them a day's work at about $10 an hour. Then at night they go back to their illegally overcrowded single-family...

    Editorial: Enough The world will not help us; we must help ourselves. We must kill as many of the Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders as possible, as quickly possible, while minimizing collateral damage, but not letting that damage stop us. And we must kill Yasser Arafat, because the world leaves us no alternative. No one seriously argues with the fact that Arafat was preventing Mahmoud Abbas, the prime minister he appointed, from combating terrorism, to the extent that was willing to do so. Almost no one seriously disputes that Abbas on whom Israel, the US, and Europe had placed all...

    Goodbye to San Francisco BY SAMANTHA SPIVAK Special to The Examiner IF SHE WERE YOUR wife, once beautiful and loving, but now shrewish, unkempt and manipulative, you would leave her. If she were a business, unconcerned about providing service after you paid a hefty premium, you would buy from someone else. She is neither, but she exhibits the worst traits of both. She is the city of San Francisco. I, for one, am taking my business elsewhere. I'm filing for divorce. She's slovenly, self-destructive, disrespectful, hates my friends, and regularly entertains some pretty repugnant companions on my dime. She...
