Moving Mountains

Friday, October 31st, 2008

I am a member of the Environmental Law Society here at law school, and tomorrow I will be visiting Kayford mountain in West Virginia. The purpose of my visit is to witness a process called mountaintop removal. The process is exactly the way it sounds. The top 600 feet or so of a mountain is […]

Thought Training

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Hello there! Wow, lots of dust in here. Well it’s been a while…again. But, like an old friend, this site is here for me to randomly and haphazardly regurgitate what comes to my mind at any particular moment. I’m in law school. Unlike the hell many make it out to be, it’s been quite a […]

Political Candidacy

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

OK so I’m really writing this as a feeble attempt to be constructive outside of my regular job. Nevertheless my topic is an issue I was thinking about on my way in to the daily grind. It’s a question really. What can we really expect from any political candidate? Forget that they’re mostly derived from […]

Global Climate Change, Economy, and Politics

Sunday, July 15th, 2007

It’s Sunday at about 11:22 am, and already the temperature has reached 90 degrees. Thank goodness for my electric air conditioner at home and the one in my carbon gas emitting car. Otherwise, I’d be sweating and that’s uncomfortable. The problem is, global climate change is happening. Furthermore, scientists almost unanimously agree that it’s […]

28-Mile Virtual I Spy

Monday, June 25th, 2007

Please gleam over this article about our latest defense system against the evil space invaders before reading on…… Gosh, I’m sooo happy that we finally crafted a solution to catching all those illegal immigrants crossing our boarders. Never mind that they used “multi billions” of dollars to protect a mere 28 miles. Come on, we […]

Bush Urges Vietnamese President to respect Human Rights, as long as it remains profitable.

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

I have always perceived free trade as an ambiguous concept that can act as a catalyst for either global economic cooperation or global domination. However, given that the most of the world operates in a capitalist framework, the outcome can easily be predicted. Those who have the capital to leverage are well positioned to rule, […]

Iraq reconfusion

Sunday, April 29th, 2007

In a recent blog I wrote about the unwillingness by the United States to finish what they started in Iraq. And so I have argued for a complete withdraw. I think that we are doomed to fail in Iraq, much like we were in Vietnam, because we were lied to about the war’s justification. But, […]

New York Airport Shutdown

Thursday, April 5th, 2007

You may have heard by now, but up until 45 minutes ago, New York’s JFK airport was completely shut down. I only know because I knew someone that was in the security line before entering the terminal. According to my source, a man or woman ran passed the security checkpoint, and into a crowd where […]

It’s St. Patrick’s Day!

Saturday, March 17th, 2007

Well I would just like to wish all those who read this blog a happy St. Patrick’s day. Like most American holidays, St. Patrick’s day originated as a religious holy day. It marked the end of Lent, lifting the prohibition on eating meat. It was traditionally celebrated by eating bacon and cabbage (not corned beef) […]

The Iranian/Russion fusion

Tuesday, March 13th, 2007

Today’s press release by Russia regarding its cooperative effort with Iran to develop nuclear capabilities raises some interesting questions about Iran’s motives. For the last couple of years, Iran has insisted that it is trying to develop nuclear technologies for peaceful applications rather than a military arsenal. In many respects, I have commended their efforts […]
