When I was entering my teens, the Vietnam war was still going. I assumed then that it would go on indefinitely and that when I turned eighteen my name would go into the lottery and I too might be called up. I dreaded the prospect, though, even then, I could understand the rationale of conscription and why my dad supported it so strongly. Our society had been built on democratic principles that enshrined fundamental human freedoms. Those freedoms were under threat from the godless ideology of Communism (or so we had been told) and so it was right and proper that we stand together to defend our country and protect those freedoms, even if it meant that countless numbers of our young men must die, perhaps including me! Times have changed. I thank God that I did not have to go and fight in Vietnam, and I am now unequivocally opposed to the practice of conscription. That's because I no longer believe the way our wars are sold to us - as noble causes. The 'domino principle' tha


 Working from Home using Amazon is a much better way to faster and larger profits, because Amazon has more than 100 times the customer base than what eBay has. But Amazon is also far more restrictive in its Product Categories. Amazon expects you to be a professional expert in the categories of products that you sell on Amazon. Amazon is also far less tolerant of mistakes. Whereas eBay is far more tolerant of mistakes. This is why there are very few merchants that sell on Amazon, which means there will be less competition.

 Trea Turner of the Washington Nationals apologized f or years-old homophobic and racially insensitive tweets.CreditEric Espada/Getty Images WASHINGTON - Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner apologized Sunday night for some years-old homophobic and racially insensitive tweets, becoming the latest in a series of major leaguers to address offensive language they used on social media. The tweets surfaced hours after Washington's 5-0 loss to the Miami Marlins at Miami. The posts are from 2011 and 2012. The 25-year-old Turner said there is no excuse for his language and he is "sincerely sorry for those tweets and apologize wholeheartedly." "I believe people who know me understand those regrettable actions do not reflect my values or who I am," he said in a statement issued by the team. "But I understand the hurtful nature of such language and am sorry to have brought any negative light to the Nationals organization , myself or the game I love."


 Action-Faking is taking many of us by storm. Truth be told, some of us are unaware that we're even doing it, yet we may wonder why we're not making progress towards our desired goals. Our goals sure look good on paper or digitally on our cell phones. The plan looks complete and good enough to achieve. So, why aren't we making progress and seeing growth or even movement towards that desired goal? Is it possible that action-faking is ruling our minds? By the way, what in the world is action-faking? Action-faking has also been known as the hamster wheel of self-improvement and it works like this. Every morning you wake up and write down your goals on paper, in a journal, or even type them into your cell phone journal. An example of this would be: "By this specific date next year I will be earning X amount of money, or I will have a secure job with benefits, or I will have attained my degree in (you name it)." The adrenalin pumps with a resounding YES, and you do
