I have a website called "fidlerten Place (fidlerten.com) which is a political blog and I also am a new Yahoo contributor. I'm a gay man so I do also write blogs that concern gay people.
I'm still new to blogging but I hope to establish a well-running website eventually.
Don’t you love how we’ve advanced as a people? 160 characters are able to shake the bones and communicate effectively to this extremely world. At any given moment one is able to know what a political official is thinking, something unlike we’ve ever imagined.
Recently, Twitter has popped up a lot in political news, especially regarding the domestic and international reactions to the anti-Muslim video.
If the Arab world wants to be taken seriously and not as barbarians, they must show restraint and respect the freedom of speech, art and expression. Those who disagree with such barbaric acts should condemn them and not allow the hooligans to represent the Islam faith. Perhaps the video is minor and is actually a catalyst to overall post-Arab Spring frustration and anti-American sentiments in the region. Such moments are breeding ground for the radical groups to recruit.
Talks of deductions or a stop on foreign aid to certain countries have arose in the media and Congress but 90% in the media have failed to ask 1) What’s the constitutionality of foreign aid, 2) America, near bankrupt, can’t afford to give foreign aid, and 3) if Republicans pose to be again domestic welfare, why support foreign welfare.
Over 8 countries have experienced violent or near-violent demonstrations. 4 Americans have been killed, most notably ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. Many in the media have called this murder an “act of war,” maybe stirring up an introduction to something larger in the near future. Hopefully not. Whatever it may be, every human being has a right to demonstrate, protest, civil disobedience, etc.–in fact, it is ones duty–but no one has to kill another being over any form of media.
Got any tweets to share?
