FAQ

So… what is it?

RantAWeek is a political and world news blog designed to explain and offer analysis on trending news topics.

Don’t blogs tend to heavily favor either Republican or Democratic views?

Here at RantAWeek, you will see winners being picked in disputes and arguments that favor a certain outcome.  However, no Republican or Democratic agendas are being followed and final opinions are left to the reader.

What is the ‘per week’ hint given in the ‘a week’ part of your name?

While there is no exact ‘per week’ posting schedule, we here at RantAWeek prefer to give readers an in-depth article, with the exception of the occasional live blog, rather than minute-by-minute news updates, which are best left to large-scale news agencies.

How can political ‘rants’ still be well thought out?

Our definition of a rant is hardly the half-comprehensible screaming of someone on the verge of a nervous breakdown.  A RantAWeek political rant is simply a forum for an author to submit his or her views on a certain topic.

Can I respond to a rant?

Sure, we love constructive criticism and others’ views. Feel free to send us an email or leave a comment, but please be respectful, not only of us, but also of other commentors. If you are vulgar, obscene or disrespectful, there is a chance that we will ban your email from commenting, and that comment will be deleted.  RantAWeek reserves the right to delete any comment for any reason.

    Can I simply say what a relief to find someone who truly knows what they’re talking about on the internet.

    Is it BRIC or BRICS?

    • On August 6, 2012 at 10:59 pm Tyler Miksanek said

      The S refers to South Africa, which was added to the original BRIC nations of Brazil, Russia, India and China after the BRIC acronym had been in place for several years. However, controversy remains over whether or not South Africa should be considered as emergent of an economy as the other four. Thus, both acronyms are acceptable.

    Seeing the lack of rants, I have one of my own:

    On the left-hand margin of Google News are the top stories. Today’s most viewed stories began with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Steward, which contributed to squishing the Sandy Hook stories five places down the list. I’m shocked at how more people could care about a fake vampire couple than the recent, devastating tragedy.

    Oh, now I’ve refreshed the page and “Blue Jays” is first on the list.

    Hi Matt and Tyler
    sorry I meant Matthew
    what’s new in your lives?
    How are your lives going right now?
    I’m sooooooo bored
    notice how I used a bunch of o’s to emphasize my boredom. I’m so bored I don’t even feel like typing up a bunch of comments. Will you ever live blog ever again?

    • On December 28, 2012 at 7:10 pm Tyler Miksanek said

      We would need a substantial and ongoing news story to liveblog about. I’m sure something will come up, even though I do not necessarily have something in mind at the present.

    I threw a wish in the well,
    Don’t ask me, I’ll never tell
    I looked to you as it fell,
    And now you’re in my way

    I’d trade my soul for a wish,
    Pennies and dimes for a kiss
    I wasn’t looking for this,
    But now you’re in my way

    Your stare was holdin’,
    Ripped jeans, skin was showin’
    Hot night, wind was blowin’
    Where you think you’re going, baby?

    Hey, I just met you,
    And this is crazy,
    But here’s my number,
    So call me, maybe?

    It’s hard to look right,
    At you baby,
    But here’s my number,
    So call me, maybe?

    Hey, I just met you,
    And this is crazy,
    But here’s my number,
    So call me, maybe?

    And all the other boys,
    Try to chase me,
    But here’s my number,
    So call me, maybe?

    You took your time with the call,
    I took no time with the fall
    You gave me nothing at all,
    But still, you’re in my way

    I beg, and borrow and steal
    Have foresight and it’s real
    I didn’t know I would feel it,
    But it’s in my way

    Your stare was holdin’,
    Ripped jeans, skin was showin’
    Hot night, wind was blowin’
    Where you think you’re going, baby?

    Hey, I just met you,
    And this is crazy,

    But here’s my number,
    So call me, maybe?

    It’s hard to look right,
    At you baby,

    Before you came into my life
    I missed you so bad
    I missed you so bad
    I missed you so, so bad

    Before you came into my life
    I missed you so bad
    And you should know that
    I missed you so, so bad

    You know I’m not one to break promises
    I don’t want to hurt you but I need to breathe
    At the end of it all, you’re still my best friend
    But there’s something inside that I need to release
    Which way is right, which way is wrong
    How do I say that I need to move on
    You know we’re headed separate ways

    And it feels like I am just too close to love you
    There’s nothing I can really say
    I can’t lie no more, I can’t hide no more
    Got to be true to myself
    And it feels like I am just too close to love you
    So I’ll be on my way

    You gave me more that I can return
    Yet there’s so much that you deserve
    Nothing to say, nothing to do,
    I’ve nothing to give
    I must leave without you

    You know we’re headed separate ways

    And it feels like I am just too close to love you
    There’s nothing I can really say
    I can’t lie no more, I can’t hide no more
    Got to be true to myself
    And it feels like I am just too close to love you
    So I’ll be on my way

    So I’ll be on my way

    And it feels like I am just too close to love you
    There’s nothing that I can really say
    I can’t lie no more, I can’t hide no more
    Got to be true to myself
    And it feels like I am just too close to love you
    So I’ll be on my way

    So I’ll be on my way
    So I’ll be on my way
