Obama In Afghanistan - Speaking Soon

I don't usually follow popular trends or what is hot in the news, but I thought I'd do it on this lazy Sunday. Obama is in Afghanistan and I've been curious what his motives are in this country. I know that his has campaigned on adding additional forces there to help win the fight, but I know that his base doesn't necessarily agree with that. It's a tough place to be in.

The fight in Afghanistan is very complex, but something that definitely has to be won. I know that many people think that taking out strategic targets is good enough. That we don't have to get down and dirty by changing the country, but I disagree with that. Power vacuums never really work out for the good. The evil/bad in that country exist because they can. It isn't a matter of removing one group from power that will keep them out and it doesn't mean that the good will fill the vacuum.

This is why we need to win the fight in Afghanistan and it is one of the few positions that I agree with Obama on. By setting up a stable secular government will help the entire world out. With freedom reigning in we can be sure that girls can go to school, women can live better and all Afghans live better. I suppose this is why Obama is in Afghanistan and he wants to reiterate these points.

President Obama speaks at Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan soon, so you will want to check that out. The press conference was supposed to start at 2:05 pm EST, but that times has passed, so I guess they're running a little behind. You can view it at the White House website at the follow address: WH.gov/live

Okay, to reiterate everything. President Obama is in Afghanistan and is schedules to speak at the Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan and he should be announcing the support for the mission there and the need for success.

The Pros And Cons of Capitalism

I thought I'd do a post on the pros and cons of capitalism. I think it is pretty apparent that capitalism is the best social system in existence and the only one that follows good moral values, such as individual freedom.

The Pros of Capitalism
You are free to make your own choices (right or wrong) in the market place.You own your life and the means to produce for your life.You can choose to run your own business or get a job with ease of government regulation.As a consumer, you get the highest quality of products for the cheapest prices.As a consumer, you get the highest variety of the types of goods and services you can purchase.You are free to innovate and invent without the government getting in your way.You don't have to pay taxes beyond that of the basics to protect your rights (police, courts, national defense, etc).You vote with your dollars. If you don't like a particular store, you can always shop somewhere else.You have the right to own property, which comes with …

Retarded Occupy Wall Street Comments

Since my post on how I thought Occupy Wall Street is Stupid, I've been getting a lot of traffic. The vast majority has been quite positive, agreeing with my post. Over the last few days I've been getting very pro-occupy wall street comments and this mainly corresponds with the traffic dying down a bit. Plus occupier are being evicted. Anyway.

Normally I just delete comments that are so retarded. Normally I allow stupid, but if it falls into that fringe of catchy stupid/conspiracy crap it goes. I thought I'd share the ones I get here and people can see. I'll even reply to them. *More will be added as they come in.

It is an anti-corruption protest! What's wrong with the U.S. public demanding true representation in D.C. (the only thing being represented is the wants of corporations, who influence policy in every sphere- medicine, food, banking, you name it, so that the very people making the policies which regulate these industries are paid off by the industry themsel…

Genetically Modified Foods Pros and Cons

I am a big fan of genetically modified foods and I think this is just another perfect example of what is one of the greatest things that science has ever done, yet it is completely demonized as an evil by other groups. Genetically modified foods are foods that have their DNA changed to help them thrive better in harsher conditions. With this type of technology we can produce more food per acre of land and have crops that are resistant to things like drought, disease and insects.

I know the idea of playing with the DNA seems scary, but it really isn't that revolutionary of a concept. Selective breading has been a process that has been going on for a long time. Selective breeding is probably happening in your life now by the mate you choose the offspring you have. The DNA changes every generation and there is nothing wrong with that.

The real issue I have is with people waging a propaganda war spreading lies and slanders against genetically modified foods. Things about splicing the DN…
