    This only reinforces that it really doesn’t matter who is in power: the elites run the show. You cannot have genuine change if people keep getting distracted by side issues that have nothing to do with advancing peace, justice and freedom. It’s disheartening to hear my girlfriend and my other Democratic friends avoid the real [...]

    2014-09-12 00:06:53View | Delete

    As I write this recovering from a prescription drug overdose, I am reminded of what happened after 9/11. Americans were told that the enemy was going to return if they did not support war against the new threat. Hell, after 9/11 Americans became more paranoid and demanded that the government curtail civil liberties to protect [...]

    Not surprised really. This is what happens when you back them into a corner. ALEC has always had contradictions within its platform. Energy is a huge one because they have no interest in energy independence. So much for “all of the above”.

    Yeah, if I don’t get approval to enter Gaza I’ll just stick to Israel instead for safety’s sake. Plus, it’s better that way so I can get a fresh perspective of what people really think inside the nation itself. And I can even ask people about their perceptions of the Palestinians. I know that I’ll [...]

    Update, I have been limited in my travel after doing my due diligence. I have been given areas where I can use my cell phone. Also I have to apply in advance to get permission with Israel, which I hate the most. I called the embassy and said that it would take me days, even [...]

    I do speak Arabic fluently. As far as contacts go, I do have a few connections in the area, mostly friends who I have met here. As far as the bombing is concerned, I will have to coordinate with them to ensure that I survive. As far as the other questions, I will do my [...]

    Thank you, it’s something I need to get out of the way now. I’ll be there a few days because it’s not a vacation or an adventure.

    This is a short diary so I will make my point clear. I am planning to head to the Gaza Strip to see the damage first hand and help some people along the way. I want to get my own perspective on the situation in Israel and have a fresh perspective. Question: good idea or [...]

    Yes, I have many options open to me. Even before getting an offer from UC Berkeley, I had offers from Brown, Harvard, Cornell, Stanford, UNC, Charles University in Prague, and so on. I will explore those options instead.

    After returning home from my vacation in Japan, I emailed the admissions department in UC Berkeley telling them that I have decided not to pursue my PhD in Mathematics and Computer Science. I know that I have been approached by them various times, and I was excited to go, but with the addition of John [...]

  • I was planning on starting this fall semester at UC Berkeley for my PhD in Computer Science and Mathematics. Looks like I have a reason to never go there until they remove his ass.

    2014-07-01 21:52:56View | Delete

    Thumbnail Feeling patriotic? Here’s a few facts about America. As the nationalistic ritual known as the 4th of July approaches, let me start off by listing a few facts about the US that you may or may not know: Current Prison Population in the United States: 716 prisoners per 100000 . (as of 2009) Healthcare Expenditures in the US: $8,508 per [...]

    I remember in 2009 when the “Tea Party” movement started, and there was this whole thing about protesting government spending and being against big government. Back then I did agree with the movement on many things, but as years passed by I became disillusioned and realized that they never really cared about true government corruption [...]

    Yeah, in retrospect she is right, but for the wrong reasons. She is sadly an Obama supporter through and through and will blindly vote for Clinton because she thinks all the good things he allegedly did for America will continue under Clinton. You are right in saying that she will continue the legacy, and you [...]

    That’s the thing, some people actually think like that. In my view, the Obama legacy will be remembered for his increase in drone strikes, continuation of the Bush doctrine even though he pretends that he’s different from Bush, continuing to spy on Americans, punishing whistleblowers and protecting the corporations so that he could curry favor [...]

    Thumbnail Hillary Clinton – Caricature As Hillary Clinton prepares for something that may be another presidential run, I ask myself, why? When I visited the D-Day memorial in Normandy I reflected upon those who have died and was wondering to myself why anyone would send young people of my age back then to a war that [...]

    As a bisexual man, I get sick and tired of when someone tells me or anyone from the LGBT community that we are sinners and that they hope that we repent and ask god for forgiveness. But hey, it’s a monotony of insanity that continues as days go by. We are told that they love [...]

    Most definitely. It’s something I wrote a few months ago while living in exile in the Pacific Northwest.

    Hello world. I have been on  a very long deserved hiatus. Let me take 2 seconds to come out as bisexual. Okay, now here is a poem dedicated to politicians who have long used their power to walk on the people they claim to support. For those who have read my posts from the past, [...]
