We live in a world of constant strife over the theft of cultures, land, and resources. The struggle for power seems to put people into two categories–the takers and the taken. On this episode of The Axiom Amnesia Theory, Heit & Cheri discuss examples of this phenomenon via the current state of affairs in the Iraqi humanitarian crisis and Hip Hop and R&B.
Topics discussed include math philosophy, easy multiplication tricks, crisis in Iraq, Iggy Azalea, whites taking over Hip Hop and R&B, Pakistani version of “These Hoez Ain’t Loyal”, and more!

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) — Another 130 U.S. troops arrived in Iraq on Tuesday on what the Pentagon described as a temporary mission to assess the scope of the humanitarian crisis facing thousands of displaced Iraqi civilians trapped on Sinjar Mountain and evaluate options for getting them out to safety.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced the deployment in remarks to Marines at this Southern California base on the final stop of a weeklong, around-the-world trip that also took him to India, Germany and Australia.
“This is not a combat boots on the ground kind of operation,” Hagel said. “We’re not going back into Iraq in any of the same combat mission dimensions that we once were in in Iraq,” he added, referring to the eight-year war that cost more than 4,400 U.S. lives and soured the American public on military involvement in Iraq.
