Is 2015 the Year of the Male Pill?

"Don't be a fool, wrap your tool!"- Van Wilder  Coolidge College 2002

Since the 15th century, something similar to Van Wilders advice has been th best thing that could be told to sexually active young men around the globe. Technology has made leaps and bounds. Manned space travel, electric cars and the Apple Watch are all examples of our marvolus scientific achivements but in all these years the condom is still the best option we have for male contaception.  
Well several reputable  news outlets have written stories stating that 2015 may be the year we have a breakthrough in the seamen blockade adventures and a more fool proof way of curbing unwanted pregnancy.
the title of this post was kind of a misnomer since the the new method of male contraception that is most likely to pass FDA approval isn't actually a pill. 
Without spoiling my next term paper with details in this blog, I'm happy to see that perhaps in the near future,  birth control might be shouldered equally by both men and women and a more technically advanced method of preventing   unintentional  child birth.

As overpopulation has a direct correlation to deforestation, environmental decay, educational deficiencies and more, we have a utilitarian responsiblity to do what we can to stem the tide.

The Great Greek Bailout Debacle 
AKA" No Guap For You"

The idea of living off of the $60 dollars  of cash  a day  that the the Greeks have be dealing with for the last week or so doesn't seem so bad to the guys I work with and myself. If I ate, drank and relaxed like a responsible adult, I could easily make it a week or two with this amount of cash daily.
But, the idea of the government clamping down on the banks and limiting the amount of daily withdraws that you can make from your own accounts would be a conspiracy theorist wet dream and the worst nightmare for many Americans.

On today 4 July 2015, I have really thought about what our country would look like tomorrow if Sunday night there was a presidential address saying that we are nor limited to the amount we could withdraw from the bank. Even with the knowledge that the amount of their funds haven't been changed, America would be a vastly different place on Monday morning. 

The economy of the world hangs at a precarious balance that can be thrown off in an instant. The world economy goes hand and hand with world security. Broke people can't buy food and hungry people won't stay hungry for long- ask Zack De La Rocha.
We Americans tend to believe we a isolated financially from the crumbling economies of the world and that the  morals and values that founded this country will prevail during times of crisis. Unfortunately, us Americans react very similarly to the rest of the world when we are broke and hungry and in crisis. I just hope that we could weather the storm with the same grace as the Greeks and not spiral away from rule of law.
