By now just about everyone in this country has heard of the Trayvon Martin shooting. Gaps of logic and purposeful injustice have led to citizens calling for an investigation to not just into George Zimmerman but the Sanford police department entirely. The outrage is understandable and charges should be brought, but this article will delve […]

The Obama Phenomenon

March 28, 2012

In 2008 America elected its first black president with a prominent underlining theme of “Change” and “Hope”. These words were chiseled into the brains of all Americans during Obama’s revolutionary campaign.

In my previous notes I talked allot about how America has involved itself in countless “wars” across the globe. We currently have over 900 military bases dispersed amongst 130 countries. The purpose of these military endeavours range from “spreading democracy” to “preventing terror threats”. In this note I will examine the origins of our military […]

In the previous article I stated that there was a new line in the sand when the line has been in the sand, it is just getting deeper and wider every day at the hands of the mega-corps.
