The U.S. lost the Cup to Europe last month in Colorado. The top-ranked U.S. golfer, Stacy Lewis, said, “Playing in the Solheim Cup is one of the greatest experiences that you can have as a golfer. The atmosphere and excitement thats created by the fans is unlike any other event in golf and I cant wait to see the amazing display put on by the great fans in Des Moines. The 2015 Solheim Cup will take place at Golf Course St. Leon-Rot in Germany.

This explained why we were so shocked when the Syrians used chemical weapons and violated a ban that has become what he called an accepted norm. He also questioned Irans assertion that its ambitious nuclear program was for purely peaceful purposes and that its state religion, Islam, forbade the development of nuclear weapons. If that were so, he said, why build 6,000-kilometer, long-range missiles capable of delivering them? He urged nations to monitor Irans atomic efforts carefully. The Iranians, he said, excelled at both making carpets, which requires attention to minute detail, and playing chess, which demands a firm grasp of strategy. But he declined to say the course he favored to persuade Teheran to comply with requirements of international inspectors and allay American and Western concerns about its nuclear intentions. Exploring other developments in his troubled region, he said he doubted that the upheavals which swept through the Arab Middle East two years ago had met the expectations of the Arab youth who helped foment them. There is no Arab Spring, he said. Egypt, the first Arab state to make peace with Israel over 30 years ago, faced particular national peril, he argued. The army had ousted Egypts elected Muslim Brotherhood government and its partys president Mohammed Morsi, he said, because Egypt, whose land had never been divided, faced for the first time in its long history the potential loss of its Sinai Peninsula to terror. The army took over because Morsi would not defend the integrity of the land, Peres said. Moreover, the Muslim Brotherhood, which had been a powerful party in opposition, had no plan to provide food, jobs, and hope after it narrowly won a heavily contested free election two years ago. In the Midde East, young Arabs face world-wide competition for increasingly scarce jobs, so throughout the world, young people are in revolt. Fueled by a powerful mix of testosterone and technology, the Arab Spring protests were aimed at creating jobs, hope, and political space.

The United States’ Obscene Wealth Inequality

By contrast to the dire poverty of those who generate WalMarts wealth, if we put aside Forbes official list of the super rich and do some of our own math, it immediately becomes evident that Number One (Bill Gates) and Number Two (Warren Buffet) are rather puny compared to Walmarts owners. Specifically: Christy, James, Alice, and S. Robson Walton hardly stand out in the Forbes gallery of the super rich at the relatively modest rankings of Number Six through Number Nine, respectively, but their net worth adds up to an obscene $136 billion: that is, $6 billion more than the fortunes of Gates and Buffet combined. Charity for profit As for the nominal Number One: his fortune seems to defy all physical laws, having grown from $9.35 billion in 1994, when he became a philanthropist , to $72 billion today. Unlike Gates, Number Two only recently jumped on the bandwagon of tropical-disease eradication. His fortune has merely stayed the same despite his various donations; but being the worlds most successful investor, profits will surely flow to Buffet from his pledge to give away his fortune to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. True, it is difficult not to make money when one is a billionaire, given the power and access that money buys. But is this all that has grown the Gates fortune at such a phenomenal rate? How could one fail to make a profit from bogus philanthropy projects to eradicate tropical diseases when one is able to support the development of vaccines, invest in the companies that manufacture them, pressure governments throughout the world into adopting them into their vaccination programs, and control all publicity about them? After all, one of the most valuable things money buys is the control of language and information. Land of inequality The US House of Representatives has declared that it will only give food assistance to those who work for more than 20 hours per week. In effect, this will formally institutionalize poverty for US workers. Along with the plan to cut food stamps, there will be coercive requirements for drug tests. Thus people who are poor will be infantilized and dehumanized. Unlike the poor of the past, who were treated with dignity and could dream of a better future for their children, todays poor will have no hope at all.
