About me:

Hello Everyone! My name is Heinz Goodman, originally from Jamaica, but right now i live in the United States.
My passion is smoking. I have smoked since i was 3 years old. I lived in the smallest city there, called Jumbalajo.
Im currently voted as one of the greates smokers in the world. I usually spend my time with my fellow smoker, although he is not as big smoker as i am. His name is Ravi Longa

Here is a video of me in one og my younger days, he-he ;;

This is the Jamaican flag:


When im bored, I usually listen to this:

Thats some of the things that i do on my sparetime!

What needs to change in Jamaica?

In my younger days, I've often thought of what could have been changed in Jamacia. I mean, there's no real perception of the country, other than smoking weed and listen to reggae music. Theres Usain Bolt and Bob marley, but I think we need more identity. We need someone who can be the face of our contry. Somoene to lift us up. Someone to make our lives more welthier. We need a famous person. We need it now…
On the other hand, i'd like us to be more like the civilized country. Like the others. People often thinks that we're just some people who lives in shelters and listen to reggae music. Thats what i want, and that is the solution for most of our problems at the moment!

Malala Yousafzi & Martin Luther king jr:

Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist for female education and she is the youngest person ever to receive a Nobel peace prize. She is known mainly for human rights advocacy for education and for women in her native province of northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. The movement Yousafzai’s advocacy has since grown internationally.
She was born July 12th in 1997, which makes her almost 18 years. She first became a respected public figure in 2009 when she wrote a diary for BBC about life under oppression. Eventually in October 9th when she was at the age of fifteen, she got shot in the head by a brutal terrorist on the bus home from school. She managed to survive against all odds, by the amazing help from English and Pakistani medical people.

Martin Luther king jr was born January 15th in 1929 in Atlanta in Georgia. He was very good at school, so he passed over 9th and the 12th year on the school. When he was young, he wanted to become a priest. Martin had a little brother and a sister. He as an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader of the African-American civil rights movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil advancement of civil rights using NONVIOLENT civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs. His speech called « I have a dream» got really famous and the racism where slightly lowered.

Comparison and contrasts:

I’m going to talk compare and contrast Malala and Martin. As you may know, both Martin and Malala fought for people who had a though life. Both of them used non-violence, and I think that that’s the reason that they are so famous. The difference between these people are that Martin fought for black people’s rights, while on the other hand Malala fought for girls’ girl in Pakistan. The reason why they did what they did, is that they absolutely know how bad their “race” and “sex” is being treated. Therefor they wanted to make a difference. Both of them has won the Nobel peace prize one time, and Malala got nominated 2 times. Unfortunately she lost the first one, but won the next one! Both of them had a hard job, because he needed to change the whole America, but Malala only needed to help girls in Pakistan. Neither of them is an easy task, although Martin made a revolution out of it. He was a leader of the SCLC, and Malala did it all alone.
They both also experienced to be shot, which is absolutely a horrible feeling. (Not that I know). Only Malala survived a shot. Martin didn’t… Rip in pepperonis.

Why are we in Afganistan when we are risking our lives everyday?


Everything started in September 11, 2001. When Al quida said that they were responsible for the attacks in the twin towers.
Over the years I have heard 10 or more reasons, but not one that is convincing. "This will not end well," George Will wrote, and I agree with that. Yes, President Obama inherited the Afghanistan war, but he has dug himself in deeper, and as they say he owns it now. It will be hard for him either to win it or to extricate us.

Why are we there? At first it was retaliation for 9/11. We should "get the people who attacked us," as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said. It is the one reason that Americans understand and do accept. I was certainly in favor of the Afghanistan invasion of 2001, and perhaps that's why Obama called it the necessary war. Striking at al Qaeda made sense in a way that invading Iraq never did. But that was a reason for going into Afghanistan, not a reason for still being there fourteen years later.

When our bombing missions and commando raids met with uncertain success, the rationale for expanding the war shifted. It was said that we couldn't let this evil thing called al Qaeda have the run of a whole nation to plot further attacks. That meant we had to get control of the whole country.
It is not our duty to give Obama cover on the grounds that a war calls for patriotism, not partisanship. Great errors of judgment must be pointed out, not glossed over. Democrats in Congress will probably want to get out of this war ahead of the Republicans, who could lend support to Obama's ill-advised war.
As a conclustion, we found out that it was the retaliation for 9/11, but many people think that its more than that. They are there to help the residens and to create protection, in case something bad happens.
