[quote]if vacations increase productivity and the US doesn't have vacations, how are we the most productive nation on earth?[/quote] We're not. However, we are near the top, particularly when you take out the countries of Northern Europe. Our technology is a big reason for that. We could do a...

re: Obama Administration department head pledges $97 million dollars to Ethiopia. - TigerPride10
[quote] The idea that a US president could (or would choose to) serve as SG of the UN is pretty silly. [/quote] I agree that it'll never happen, but let's not act like that's due to anything more than simplt the practicalities of the SC. While the Charter has its flaws (enforcement of Chapters 6/...

re: Obama Administration department head pledges $97 million dollars to Ethiopia. - TigerPride10
[quote]I think it's great that our country sends aid around the world to those who need it. However, when you have accumulated as much debt as we have, we need to work on fixing that rather than sending money out. [/quote] Do you really think our foreign aid is doled out with altruistic motiv...

[quote] A lot of links are popping up that claim he's in the running for the top slot like this one. [/quote] From ridiculous websites. Even if he "ran" for the position (I use that term in quotation marks because there isn't really an election or campaign like we may be thinking), the automatic...
