You just might be a Liberal if you get more upset about Fox News criticizing the president than you do ISIS beheading Christians.

Section 215 Expires—For Now. Senate to Vote on USA #FREEDOM Act on Tuesday  https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2015/05/section-215-expires-now …
Senate to Vote on USA FREEDOM Act on Tuesday Section 215 has expired.  At least for now. The law that the NSA used to authorize its collection of vast amounts of information about the telephone calls of ordinary Americans is no more. Even though it’s likely temporary, it’s a good thing and we should pause to celebrate a little.

Bragging rights
The best bragging is having others brag about you.
Work
Occupation
I am an Oil & Gas Trader & Financier, Lobbyist, Activist and Philanthropist. I like to push the envelope in everything I undertake. I strongly believe everything is possible hence I never ever surrender. I avoid negative people who emanate negative vibes and have a knack of detecting bullshit and bullshitters a mile away. My life philosophy is very simple: If you are unsure of a course of action, do not attempt it. Timidity is dangerous: Better to enter with boldness. Any mistakes you commit through audacity are easily corrected with more audacity.
Skills
Strategic Advisory, Principal Investments, Oil Trading, Entrepreneurship, Corporate Finance, Private Equity, Venture Capital, and of course... sales. Because it's all and always about selling. You're always selling something and when not selling a product/service, you're selling yourself! ...The mother of all sales.
