on July 22nd, 2014 by admin

I’ve always had a fascination with the ancient world. Considering that Western Europe and the United States in particular, based their own cultural frameworks on ancient Greek and Roman culture.  The question to ask is why did these cultures end in the ruins we see today?  A book I want to introduce you to gives […]

12 Years A Slave.

on November 23rd, 2013 by admin

No movie has impacted me more than this film.  The only movie that compares to 12 Years is 1989’s Glory.  Not only does 12 Years accurately portray the horrendous nature of slavery, it also shows the indomitable spirit of Solomon Northrup, whose true story this movie is based on.  The acting was superb.  It’s hard […]

The Boston Marathon Terrorist Attacks

on April 24th, 2013 by admin

The aftermath of the terrorist attacks at the Boston Marathon symbolizes the massive evasion perpetuated by the Obama Administration.  This was an intelligence failure from top to bottom-again.  As with all Islamic terrorism, the bombings at the marathon were an attack on hard work, dedication, success, and achievement.  In short, anything related to Western civilization.  […]
