Tomorrow I will be 27 years old. Feels strange to realize that I'm so much closer to 30 than 20 or even 25. But it's okay. I've been an adult for over 15 years (in actions and mental acuity) so it just feels the same. With my wife out of the country, and my family unable to visit (and I unable to visit them) due to weather, my birthday is even less important this year. Maybe I'll just celebrate my half-birthday in six months. :)
Anyway, we have some interests links from Chuck, of course. We can always count on Chuck.
-- The Violence Against Women Act passed the other day, leading to much celebration from supporters, who fought hard to get there. There is still much to be done to reach equality, though, and you can see how you can help here.
-- A new bill has hit Congress. "To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or as civilian service in a Federal, State, or local government program or with a community-based agency or community-based entity, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, to provide for the registration of women under the Military Selective Service Act, and for other purposes."
-- Law enforcement officials are training their officers to break the "Sovereign Citizen" movement, and documents have been found proving this.
-- The next two links are very interesting, and concern our foods here in America. Check out these links. First up, a reporter takes an in depth look at how food companies managed to get Americans addicted to their foods. Second, another look is taken at how processed food took over our lunches.
