Island Making

The U.S. is often criticized for what some call our "Nation Making" policies. This is what has been occurring in Afghanistan, Iraq, etc...

Well, if objectors don't like that maybe we can change it up a bit and find a happy medium.

After reading this story: North Korea at it Again I can't help but think of a new policy for the U.S.: Island Making...(Click Link Below)

North Korea has nothing to offer the U.S. or the World. They continually "interract" with the rest of the global community through the only means possible, fear. It may soon be time to eliminate this threat and cancer on society, and the best way to do so is to make South Korea an island.

Better yet, this may be a cleaner and more efficient way of dealing with the problem: SECRET WEAPON!

What has this world come to?

This is the saddest thing I've read in a while: Call from Iraq

If I was the teacher, all I would do is ask him to leave. Our troops don't have the luxury of calling ANYTIME, what a stupid thing for this school to do.

It's a shame people can't take a little responsibility and say, "hey sure, leave the class but take the call."

Support Our Troops - Wear Red on Fridays

I was scanning some news sites and came across this article: Wear Red on Fridays

While reading the article a few things came across my mind:

-Why isn't there more of a show of solidarity in this country for the troops? Sure, you can be opposed to the idea of war, and this war, but support the troops please.

-Why do stories like this: "Homecoming Sign Removed" happen more than the one above?

-"We cannot let people just stick signs up," LePera said. "The city would look like a mess."

-LePera said the family might have been able to get special permission to place the sign in a specific area had they contacted the code compliance office.

So in other words: If you want to support troops don't expect students, cities, or officials to support your efforts. You must work through the bureaucracy of getting things "OK'ed" by people whom are paid by your tax dollars and protected by your friends and family overseas. The land that you CAN'T put said support and signs on is public, but that doesn't mean you have right or access to it without permission.

Left Loves Free Speech...?

Once again, theft is the issue of the day for the Review.

In the past we have dealt with various theft of our property: Papers Stolen

The bad news is, we have begun to run out of stuff to steal.

Our latest issue hit racks last week, well the few racks we had left. We were down to 2 racks, with all others being stolen throughout the year. We now only have one left, in OLD MAIN. The current theft occurred from the UGL. The entire rack was taken... in order to.... well we aren't quite sure.

We see now that the left will stop at nothing to stop our ideas from getting out there. Sure, I don't believe that there is one giant coordinated conspiracy against us, but I think the mentality is a single strain that runs in the minds of all of our detractors.

With nothing left to steal, aside from the papers, we will have to wait and see what the new type of attacks will be.
