The United States: The Quadrennial Contest
Saturday, 01 September 2012 19:18

At last the primary season for the Republican Party came to an end, the Republican National Convention which convened on Monday, August 27, 2012 in the international meeting center in Tampa, Florida officially nominated former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan as their choice as president and vice president to stand against president Obama on the 6th of November presidential elections.  In a roll call of the states on Tuesday, the Wyoming’s 29 presidential delegate put Romney over the top with 28 votes with the other going to Ron Paul, thus giving the ex-Massachusetts giving him the prize that eluded him more than five years.  Romney who has selected the 42 years old congressman Paul Ryan the chairman of the house budget committee on August 11 as his running mate.  Romney is scheduled to accept his party's nomination in a speech Thursday night.  Mitt Romney had effectively clinched the nomination in May.  All of his former GOP competitors have endorsed him, with the exception of Texas Rep. Ron Paul.

The US Supreme Court: The Obamacare Ruling; Part Two
Saturday, 11 August 2012 22:19

TODAY’S update of the Hanoudiletter is the second part of my essay on the Obamacare drama. The first part was posted to this blog on July 10  after the US Supreme Court  pronounced its verdict on the constitutionality of the controversial edict, a verdict which I  said at the time was an imaginative compromise, a very  clever way out of an extremely complex and explosive situation because the ruling preserved the constitutionality of the law when it called the highly controversial individual mandate a tax which was constitutional and not a commerce which was not, it was a slick solution to a bitterly divisive dispute, it gave the liberals their long cherished dream of government led reform while giving the conservatives a new doctrine to limit congressional power which they have been seeking for a very long time, had the ruling sided with one or the other the country would have been  plunged into a very serious and unpredictable situation, but it left the two adversaries in their appallingly polarized positions and opened the road to re-ignite the very divisive controversy, the court`s ruling was in fact the end of the beginning one hopes it would be the beginning of the end.

The US Supreme Court: The Obamacare Ruling, Very Clever……But
Sunday, 15 July 2012 01:33

Obamacare is the informal titlewhich is frequently given to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act which is a United States statute which was enacted by Congress on March 21, 2010 and was signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010.  The legislation stretched to 2,700 pages and 450 provisions.  The act reforms certain aspects of the health care system expanding access to insurance to 30 million Americans; it included the controversial individual mandate while lowering projected Medicare spending.  The signing of the law by the President which was passed in the face of a solid wall of opposition by the Republicans was supposed to be the fulfillment of a solemn pledge which he made during his quest for the Presidency when he said that if he won the election fixing the health care system would be one of his top priorities.  However, that is not what happened; the Republicans mounted very strong legal challenge just hours after the President signed the measure which finally reached the Supreme Court which in March 2012 heard six hours of oral arguments from both sides and decided to rule on the constitutionality of the law at the end of June.

The Iraqi Situation: The Plight of the Christians
Saturday, 09 June 2012 01:10

TODAY'S update is about the suffering of the Iraqi Christians in the aftermath of the invasion-occupation of our country in 2003, this is one of the most under reported stories of Iraq from that date on, I am hoping to shock people from their apathy towards the plight of our Brethren.  The  Christians in Iraq numbered about a million in 2003, they were mostly middle class but were always in spite of their minority status a crucial component of the infrastructure of Iraq before the collapse of the state in the aftermath of the war.  Everybody in Iraq had his share of hurt and misery as a result of that misguided adventure and the mayhem which followed but the Christians had a much bigger piece than most.  They were targeted by Islamist groups, both Sunnis  and Shi'ites with bombing of churches, kidnapping rapes, shooting and evacuation, of the one million  at the start of the war there is now less than half.  Some have fled to the north of the country and tens of thousands of them are refugees in next door Syria and Jordan and worst might come. If Iraq is going to be torn apart by the warring Muslim factions no Christian will find a safe place to live there, they will either die or follow their brethren into exile.
