Do you sometimes feel, dear reader, that you are in the middle of a hostage situation in which you and your fellow captives know that you are in a bad way and there is nothing you can do about it because all the doors are locked and your hands and feet have been manacled?If you do, then you are living in an African country governed the African way. The country probably has a constitution that says all the beautiful words that constitutions are meant to say, guaranteeing the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It probably also says that there will be periodic elections that shall be free, fair and transparent. It also establishes a number of grand-sounding institutions to enforce these rights, such as a talking shop called parliament, courts of law, an ombudsman and such like. http://www.theeastafrican.co.ke/OpEd/comment/...

mitt romney former failed governor of Massachusetts. Moderate Republican.... has had to move himself over so far to the right in an attempt to get the Republican nomination for President he doomed himself....
Smart, good looking, and potentially a dangerous candidate, but his flip flopping has probably doomed any chance the GOP could win the white house..... President O dies and the Democrats run OJ Simpson or Saddam's corpse..... which wouldn't really be that shocking since anyone could beat this mormon bafoon..space ships for everyone.
But Republicans always want to take our guns....
Mitt Romney signed 5 day waiting law to purchase a gun in Mass.He fought for and got passed a total ban on all assault rifles in Mass..Mitt Romney governor of Mass has some of the toughest gun laws in America and your worried about Obama ???

"Memphis, Tn - Is a book written by a Tennessee couple leading parents to kill? The book called, "To Train Up a Child," has been linked to the death of 3 children throughout the U.S.
The book is sparking outrage among child advocacy groups. The authors say it teaches people how to train and discipline their children. But some, including some prosecutors say the book is teaching parents to train their children to death."

A Killer Among Us?#ThingsObamaKilled

As President of the United States, Barack Obama wants us to know he killed Osama Bin Laden. The SEALs? Pfffffftttt ... nope. Barack Obama did it. If you don’t believe him, wait till the campaign commercials tell you. Don’t believe them? Well, just in time for the election, Hollywood will provide us with an in-kind contribution of a propaganda film.

This morning, my dad called and pointed out that Barack Obama may just be the most successful killer to ever take up residence in the White House — more successful even than the 19th Century vampire slayer who first led the Republican Party into the White House. In fact, consider the serial killing spree Barack Obama has been on:

Osama Bin Laden

The oil and natural gas industry

Indeed, every so many years you and your fellow captives troop out to vote for your preferred candidate and/or party, and at the end of the exercise, a government of sorts is formed and its head makes a grandiloquent statement reaffirming his commitment to the delivery of the goodies he promised during the campaign, the nation listens carefully and your hopes soar.

But before you grow old you realise you’ve been had. All the rhetoric, you learn, was just words, all the promises empty and all your hopes unfounded. You get to know why “politician” was, in Shakespearean parlance, used to denote a dishonest and dissembling character. You rue the day you went to vote, and may even swear never to vote again.

The hostage situation becomes more and more intractable when you realise that despite your realisation that all the literature about freedom and prosperity and all the declarations about service to the nation were traps with which to ensnare you, you cannot wiggle out of the bind you find yourselves in.

And, you may sometimes participate in your continued enslavement by siding with some of your kidnappers because they come from your tribe or profess the same superstition as yourself, and they probably told you it’s your turn to eat. Yet, if you looked closely you would find out that it’s the turn of the big man and his wife and children to eat while you of the tribe or faith make do with the crumbs off the high table. Tribal, religious and regional alliances are ploys used by cheats to fool the masses.

Often, while you lie on the floor blindfolded and bound hand and foot, you will hear bitter wrangling among the thieves fighting over your property, one claiming the television set, another the stereo system and a third the jewellery. You realise there is no honour among these thieves, and you are praying that they settle their differences quickly, take whatever they want and leave your house.

But they are not leaving in any hurry because another argument erupts as to whether they should kill you since you may be able to identify them, and you now know you are really in a bad way. Well, they do not exactly kill you but they do not leave either. They remain and make your home theirs, and you remain seriously handicapped because you are still bound, blindfolded and maybe gagged as well.

This is the situation in which many African countries find themselves in, being governed for the most part by conspiracies that came into power riding on a wave of popular support, with the enthusiastic hope among the populace that the deprivations of the outgoing regime were a thing of the past. Soon, the past becomes the present as well as the future.

We are saddled with thieving scoundrels that we apparently cannot get rid of, and we helplessly listen to them haggling over our property as they demand fairness in the sharing of the loot. And even if they untie you and say you are free to leave, it’s like in the old Eagles’ song, Hotel California:“You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave…”

One of 6 reasons Romney could win in 2012:

6. President Obama presides over a country in which (1) roughly two-thirds of the electorate think that the nation is off on the wrong track,(2) roughly 15% of the workforce is either unemployed or has given up looking for work, and (3) roughly half of the country is hoping that someone else (anyone else!) will be elected president in 2012.

President Obama is vulnerable in the same way that President Jimmy Carter was vulnerable in 1980. Gas prices are through the roof, the Middle East is in turmoil, the economy is in terrible shape and the Federal government is going broke. Romney need only ask: "four more years of this?"

Just looking at the picture of Obama on this page makes you want to vote him out just to give him a break and do him a favor.
