So far, I haven't seen an indication that he's willing to do anything about NSA wrongdoing.
Well, Keith Alexander is getting the boot and there's a new nominee, Michael Rogers. That's something happening this month, though I don't know if it's Obama's doing or if Keith just decided to leave.
I know there's this idea that a good leader should take responsibility for everything that their underlings do, but this is just a way of circumventing justice. The underlings commit all manner of crimes, the guy at the top says "I'm in charge, I take responsibility." and it all goes away.
I'll grant that there are a lot of situations where pushing the responsibility down can be just as bad or worse than pushing it up, but so what? All that's illustrating is that this sort of thing is complicated. Figuring out just who it is who has committed a crime is often not an easy or simple thing to do.
I'm sure that part of the reason for that is the fact that hispanics are mostly catholic, but the bigger reason is likely what the other poster mentioned: the richer a group is, the fewer children they have.
It's true that birth rates among wealthier nations are lower, but the world's current population is already more than double what can be sustained at the elevated rate of consumption found in wealthier nations. And, what's more, slower != stopped: the world's most populace wealthy nation, The United States, still has a positive birth rate. Economies in those wealthier nations are also tied to an ever-expanding population - Japan may have a negative birth rate, but for the sake of their economy they're trying to provide incentives to encourage their people to have more children, not less.
Incidentally, the Red Sea in the biblical account is a mistranslation - it's actually supposed to be the "sea of reeds." In other words, a marsh. This makes sense for a bunch of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that the Israelites lived in the delta region in Egypt, which has plenty of marshes but isn't very close to the Red Sea.
After Akhenaten's death, Tutankhamun and his sister / wife, Ankhesenamun, were too young to rule so the vizier, named Ay, took over and basically tried to undo what Akhenaten had done. The "amun" at the end of the two children's names is significant - Amun was the most worshiped god of the old religion, Tut's father's god was called the Aten. Tut's birth name was Tutankhaten, and the change came with a lot of reversals of his father's religious policies.
For a long time Tutankhamun was believed to have been murdered, but I guess that's in dispute now. Regardless, we have a heartbreaking letter from just after his death sent by his sister / wife to the Hittite king. Remember that Ay, in his seventies, has been ruling the country unofficially for the last nine years, that Egypt was the most powerful country in the world at this time, that the Hittites were traditional enemies of Egypt, and that Ankhesenamun, now eighteen and alone, is the only surviving member of the pure royal bloodline. This is from memory, so don't get mad if it's slightly off:
My husband is dead and I have no sons. I understand that you have many - send me one of yours and I will marry him and make him king of Egypt. Never will I marry a servant.
I am afraid.
A Hittite prince was sent, and he and his retinue were murdered en route. The only other record that we have of Ankhesenamun is her name and Ay's written together in way that signifies that they were married. Ay becomes the next pharaoh, and she disappears after this.
Fine, for your lazy ass: link.
