This perceptible shift in the investigative journalism is certainly alarming. What is perhaps even more horiffying is to watch the reaction of ordinary people.

The dramatic tendency of their reaction indicates a calamity of thoughts that over time appears to typically degenerate to extreme subservience, to faceless accussations, yet powerful lobbies of corruption.

...or she is a citizen and not simply a consumer to dedicate his or her life, fortune and sacred honor to the Republic. Those who cannot or will not keep faith with their civic inheritance will soon squander or lose it.

As to happiness, how can Ms. Rand a purported champion of individual rights deny to any the right to determine the warp and woof of one’s happiness?

Once a proud U.S. Naval Base, standing tall in the face of Castro's dictatorship, the site has become synonymous with torture and human rights abuses.

...sufficient to determine what is in the best interest of a child. It may be enough time to effect settlement and develop agreements, but in no way should a child's life be effected by merely 90 minutes of a nerve racking, emotional meeting with a person who is not fully informed of ALL the relevant facts, and possibly not qualified.
