Obviously, these figures don’t include children killed in Somalia & Afghanistan.
If ever these strikes are reported in the MSM, many of these children are listed as “militants,” a word redefined by President Obama to mean any male of military age in a strike zone, so as to disguise the number of children killed by his drone policy. Under this abuse of presidential power with lack of judicial oversight, Obama has escalated George W. Bush’s drone program more than five times over. 
Not only are children & civilians caught in strike zones, but drones are killing rescuers & family members with the “double tap” method, a second strike in the same zone. The “double tap” is considered to be a war crime under international law.

On the roll to lose rolls around the stomach

Within the last two years, I’ve been gaining a lot of unwanted weight, the “Transfer 20” is actually a reality and is not a collegiate myth told to coerce and scare students into the university’s weight rooms to transform into “gym rats.” “Transfer 20,” what is that you may ask? Well since my metabolism began to steeply decline since I began my freshman year of college, in which I commuted for two years, and then transferred into my four year-university as a junior, I am presented with the cursed gift of 20 pounds rather than (the Freshman) 15.

Recently, I’ve been cutting back my calorie intake, filling my plate with more fruits and vegetables, and getting an adequate amount of cardiovascular exercise; however, I am so impatient for the positive and healthy results. Patience? No one has the time for that! And to be honest, I am actually quite unsure if I am on an effective diet and workout routine. Furthermore, it is extremely difficult for me to eat healthy for a number of reasons, but here are the top 3:

1) I grew up loving McDonald’s and have countless childhood memories playing in their playhouse after eating a juicy-instant-made double cheese burger complemented with a medium Coke. Who can forget the first time they laid eyes on a pool of plastic balls?

2) I am addicted to unhealthy food. I love burgers (especially from Mikey D’s), fries (especially from Checkers), and soda (from Day’s to Coca-Cola products). The worst thing about this reason is that I tend to eat these foods during moments of stress. Yeah I know, it is a pretty bad habit.

3) Eating healthy is a hassle. Being decisive and selective about my meal choices (having to choose from a greasy-delicious burger or healthy-bland salad) gets on my nerves. Sometimes on my last nerves. I do not have the time on top of school-work, work-work, and home-work to add and give attention to food-work. Yes food-work, the mental work required to make decisions on one’s food choices such as the tasteless cucumber or the tasteful chili hotdog. This is probably the hardest obstacle: being aware of food selection.

Like they say, “looking good ain’t easy” and evidently achieving good looks is not an easy task either. And of course, it is not all about looking good but also being healthy and lowering risks of strokes, obesity, and other unwanted problems. Mental endurance, enthusiasm, and consistency (among many other positive values) will help me get on the roll to lose rolls around the stomach. And yes, these character traits are not going to be implanted into my brain overnight.

I definitely do not want to hit the gym to look like Chuck Norris but I certainly do not want to hit 200 pounds + like a Baltimore Ravens’ linebacker. All I can say is, early goodbye to you Mr. “Transfer 20” and let’s hope you disappear before I graduate college within less than 4 months. Let’s hope.
