Say what you mean and mean what you say

“Women are impossible to understand.” “Men have their own language.” “She speaks in codes.” “He doesn’t listen to a word I say.” We’ve all heard the arguments and probably participated in a few. Personally, I think all people are hard to decipher, no matter the age, gender or native language. And I’m here to say, I think I have a solution to this problem in communication and it’s called … (wait for it) … the truth.

Supplement regulations need strengthening

(11/08/09 7:52pm)

Next month will mark the 20th anniversary of a mass poisoning in this country that almost everyone has forgotten. But for all Americans who use dietary supplements today, the lessons to be learned from this tragic event are certainly worth remembering. In late 1989, thousands of people across the country purchased pills containing an over-the-counter dietary supplement called Tryptophan – a vital amino acid found in foods like turkey and bananas. What they didn’t know was their pills were contaminated with one of the most lethal human poisons ever created.

GOP recovering; Democrats need more unification

(11/11/09 7:05pm)

Bob McDonnell won Virginia. Or as the Associated Press put it “Conservative Republican Bob McDonnell's victory in the Virginia governor's race over Democrat R. Creigh Deeds was a triumph for a GOP looking to rebuild after being booted from power in national elections in 2006 and 2008. It also was a setback for the White House in a swing state that was a crucial part of Obama's electoral landslide just a year ago.” No matter how you say it, it seems the future of the coming elections is all ready being decided.

Palin shows focus of U.S. is askew

(11/18/09 4:18pm)

The Sarah Palin media blitz has begun. Her book will sell a ton of copies, and she will probably begin to build herself up for a run at the presidency. She will make appearances on the talk show circuit and talk about what she thinks is wrong with America. I hope someone gives her a reality show and hopefully the fame and fortune she receives will be enough to keep her away from politics forever.

Men need self-control

(11/22/09 4:16pm)

Guys, we have a problem: We are not treating our ladies with the respect they deserve. Over the last four weeks, I have heard way too many stories of how ladies have had to break up with their boyfriends because they found out they were cheating. Now, every situation is different; there might be a whole host of factors involved in a decision to be in a relationship with another woman. If that is the case, why not be a man and tell the woman you're currently with that you're not interested anymore. I'm sure that would be much more respectful than going behind your girl’s back and engaging in a relationship with another person. Now, I understand there are many good-looking women out there, and you might be tempted. But every person on this planet has the ability to exercise self-control and self-restraint. When I was in middle school I heard this one guy saying that when one man does something stupid, every man in the world suffers for it. This is another one of those statements that are too true. When you decide to cheat another woman finds out, and old-school guys who are trying to find a good woman are dealt another blow to their efforts. As a man, I believe we can do better than this.

Obama is letting the country down

(12/06/09 6:54pm)

It’s official. President Obama has caved to the desires of war hawks and interventionists. He addressed the volatile situation in Afghanistan and has called up 30,000 more troops to support his ongoing project. Like every other problem in the last four to five decades, the twisted and out of touch Republicans and Democrats think it can be fixed by throwing money at it.

President made the right decision

On Tuesday, President Obama made a very important speech on the future of Afghanistan. His speech focused on his strategy to make Afghanistan a more secure country free of terrorism and safe for democracy. His plan calls for sending an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan and bringing them home within 18 months. Also, he said that America will write no more blank checks to Afghanistan.
