Afghanistan is one of the poorest countries on earth. Security issue or no security issue, there would need to be a focus on it.

The question is: How do we reduce spending from 25% of GDP, which is where Obama put us? The focus is on total government spending. Can we bring it down, in a reasonable and politically acceptable way? That’s what the Paul Ryan plan does. It puts us on a gradual reform path to reducing the size of government.

I’ve written almost 200 songs with Bad Religion. No matter where you look in our history, the focus has been trying to instill some of these disturbing realities about the world, some of the implications of evolution into an artistic format that can be interpreted by people who may never study evolution.

Entrepreneurship is seen as if you’re in Silicon Valley or New York City and starting an app business or a social-media business, which is cool. But what we really have to focus on is people who make things, and how can we fund them, and how can we encourage people to stay in their community and make a difference in their community.

The more you look into health and health inequalities, you realize that a lot of it is not due to a particular disease – it’s really linked to underlying societal issues such as poverty, inequity, lack of access to safe drinking water and housing. And these are all the things we focus on at CARE.

I hate first drafts, and it never gets easier. People always wonder what kind of superhero power they’d like to have. I wanted the ability for someone to just open up my brain and take out the entire first draft and lay it down in front of me so I can just focus on the second, third and fourth drafts.

The thing about ‘Game of Thrones’ is it doesn’t pin too much of a focus on magic. It kind of paints it in the same way that mystical things are portrayed in our world, because you don’t walk about Westeros and see wizards with staffs or magical wands. All the characters don’t really believe in it. It’s this mysterious hidden vein to Westeros.
– Isaac Hempstead Wright
I’m always open to suggestions. I’m open to opportunities. Whether I take them or not, I don’t know. And I would only take them if I weren’t training, if I didn’t have a fight scheduled. I really want to keep my focus on fighting. That’s where all these doors are opening up from anyways. I don’t want to lose sight of that. I love fighting.
