Change in Paris…

This past Sunday, French people yet again showed the rest of the world the true meaning of a democracy. As Americans we love to attack and make fun of the French but once again they showed us how things should be done. I was amazed to see that the presidential election had an 85% turnout unlike our last election where we had a turnout of 54%. The funny thing about all of this is that our politicians spent over $500,000,000 in the last presidential race and only attracted 54% of the population. The French on the other hand use a state run television program so that the entire population has access to it and in return have a massive turnout. Wouldn’t it be great to see people being more interested in our presidential elections rather than worrying about voting for the next American Idol???

This by far has to be one of the best news stories of 2007. After years of having to deal with one of the most annoying individuals of all time, a California judge sentenced Paris Hilton to 45 days in jail for driving with a suspended license. It’ nice to know that on rare occasions the law can’ be bought by the wealth / power of celebrities. The only sad thing about this story is that once she is set free, we once again have to suffer as a society…

Illegal immigration Day...

May 1st marks yet another day of massive demonstrations around the country for illegal immigration. Many illegal immigrants were marching here in Los Angeles trying to gain support for their cause. As a legal immigrant who’s parents had to wait in line for over ten years in order to have the privilege of receiving a Green Card and gaining access legally, I believe that its not right for people to have the same rights if they choose to brake the laws of the land and not wait in line like the rest of us. Therefore I am absolutely against having amnesty for illegal immigrants; that being said I also realize that illegal immigrants are the backbone of our country due to their willingness to perform jobs that most “Americans” simply wouldn’t do. Many illegal immigrants are good hardworking citizens who actually help our society and therefore should have access to healthcare and education. I guess what I am really trying to say is that I don’t know what the right response to this crisis is; we shouldn’t reward people for breaking laws and at the same time we should find it in our hearts to help one another, especially if they are helping our economy and society. On a side note, I think all students who skip classes to attend these demonstrations should be suspended… odds are they are trying to get out of school and don’t really give a damn about the issue!!!

Medal of Freedom!!!

Today six former CIA officers wrote a nasty letter to the former Director George Tenet who is blamed by many for being one of the main reasons why we are at war. Interestingly enough the former officers accused Tenet of misleading the American public and our congress with the type of information he chose to release in order to make a case for Iraq. The officers expressed their anger and frustration with tenet because the reports from officers on the field clearly showed that there were no WMD in Iraq and that Saddam and Al-Qaeda had no ties to one another. The officers also requested Tenet giving back the Medal of Freedom he received from President Bush before leaving the Agency. What amazes me is that Tenet’s new book is coming out on Monday and he actually gets to profit from all the pain and suffering he has brought to our nation and the rest of the world.

NFL Draft...

Its NFL draft time and I am happy to report that the most overrated college player of all time Brady Quinn ended up being the #22 over all pick and not #1 as expected by the bias media. I am so sick of ND getting all the hype from the media even if it’s clear to most fans around the nation that they lack talent!!!

Farewell Senior Year…

Today was the last day of class for many seniors, including myself. As tradition has it at USC, all seniors must partake in one last activity before leaving USC and entering the real world. This activity is known to many as “The Fountain Run”!!! On the last day of classes all seniors at SC gather up near the Finger Fountain at night and all run as a group and jump into each and every single fountain in our campus. I am talking about more than 32 fountains, 2 miles of running, and lots and lost of screaming. Tonight was no different, my friends and I joined forces with hundreds and hundreds of students and ran across campus, jumped in every fountain and finally completed our right of passage. I highly encourage all undergrads to continue the senior tradition when their time arrives.
