DDhananjay
AlexanderOc

these days all t.v. shows are filled with such scenes that teach the present young generation yo resort to violence at every step. the main reason for the same is the special mindset of many children and youth that inspire them to follow people like action heroes and role models like Martin Luther and Mahatma Gandhi are now a thing in past. present generation blindly follow their role models keeping aside the very fact of what's needed and what's not. blindly following salman khan and his pictur...

The Republican party is the chief cause of govt. inaction for crucial issues.

I argue that the partisanship of the RECENT Republicans is the chief problem behind the largely lethargic and partisan Congress.

But a person should be allowed to smoke if they want in private without affecting others...
