Sony's 'The Interview' Will Be Leaked; You Cannot Suppress Media CompletelysbfriedmanDec 18, 20141376
It's official, Sony has announced they will not release the highly controversial film 'The Interview' amid massive and ongoing hacker attacks on their company and terrorist-like threats to potential viewers of the film. No national movie theater chains wanted to show the film in their building out of understandable fear of some kind of attack, and Sony soon had no choice but to decide to scrap the film release altogether.
'It's Time For a New Approach': President Obama Moves to Normalize Relations With CubajaredsxtnDec 17, 201432470
Cuba may soon be open again! After five decades of a failed policy that few could justify by any reasonable means, President Obama announced that it was time to move America in a new direction and begin to normalize relations with the island state. The bombshell announcement was made after months of secret negotiations between the Obama and Castro Administrations.President Obama began his speech by telling the world that:"Today we are making these changes because it is the right thing to do.
America is Truly Exceptional, But Not For the Reasons You Have Been ToldjaredsxtnDec 15, 201402231
Have you ever had someone ask you why you just don't just leave the country whenever you express even the slightest frustration with the status quo? It's a common refrain from those who believe in American exceptionalism and is something I've heard so often that I've begun to push back more forcefully against those who suggest I leave my homeland because I have the gall to question if we are living up to the ideals that actually do make America the best country on earth. So I'm sorry naysayers, I am not going anywhere. I'm going to stay here and work to make this the best country the world has ever seen.
The CIA Torture Program Has Damaged America's Image. Here is How we can Make Things RightjaredsxtnDec 9, 201402755
The United States Government is responsible for torturing at least 119 individuals, many of whom were held 'wrongly' and were held for no reason at all. While many Americans were aware of the tactics our Central Intelligence Agency conducted in our name, it is still a very difficult pill to swallow now that the scathing Senate Intelligence Committee's report has been officially released. It is quite understandable to be outraged by today's release and you have every right to vent your anger, but that will only get us so far.
The Economy is Taking Off and We Should All Thank President Obama for Making it HappenjaredsxtnDec 5, 201402526
The American economy is taking off and not looking back. The Labor Department reported that 321,000 jobs were added in November and also reported that last month saw the biggest gain in hourly wages since June of 2013. Coupled together, these numbers are a vindication to President Obama's economic policies and should lay to rest any lingering criticisms of his handling of the economic recovery. If only we could be so lucky.
Are Online Threats Protected Speech or Criminal Activity?jaredsxtnDec 1, 201412336
What should happen if someone threatens to kill you on social media? Are they protected by the First Amendment right guaranteeing the right to freedom of speech, or are they breaking the law? We will soon know now the answer after the Supreme Court rules on a case that may have far reaching ramifications well beyond the single case they are hearing. Anthony Elonis has asked the Supreme Court to throw out his conviction of threatening to kill his wife because he did so online and not in person.
How We Can Use the Pain and Grief in Ferguson to Change America's Police PracticesjaredsxtnNov 25, 201403567
The decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson for his role in the shooting death of Michael Brown shines a spotlight on the flawed criminal justice system that we have set up in this country. An unarmed teenager was shot and killed by a police officer and that officer will never see the inside of a criminal courtroom. It's tough to wrap my head around how this is still possible in this wonderful country of ours, but unfortunately Mike Brown is one of hundreds of unarmed citizens who die from over zealous police officers year in and year out. This has to stop.
Black Friday Will Only Destroy Thanksgiving If We Allow It TosbfriedmanNov 24, 201412442
The day American shoppers lose their minds for moderately awesome, limited supply discounting is upon us! Black Friday is here, and some of the largest retailers across the country are following the annoyingly disturbing trend of opening their doors even earlier this year than the last.What was once a tradition that actually started on early Friday morning (the Friday directly after Thanksgiving Day) has been slowly but surely creeping into Turkey Day itself, confusing and morphing the two now completely American traditions into one blob of consumer culture haze.
