HEy RACISTS DUNCE READ In the "invention of tradition"; process occurring now in Mali,
Senegal and Guinea around this issue, I think we need to distinguish
between two so-called "Charts";: the Charte du Mande ("1222";) and
the "Charte de Kurukan Fuga"; ("1236";). Both versions claim to date
back to Sunjata's reign and his victory against Sosso, but they
provide different dates, and the formalised text is somewhat
different (texts included below for comparison).

The "Charte du Mandé"; is based on oral traditions of the Mandinka
hunters associations and, to my knowledge, was first published in
1991 (Cissé & Kamissoko 1991: 39). It is this version, transcribed by
Youssouf Tata Cissé which figures in the 2003 book (Cissé, Fofana &
Sagot-Duvauroux 2003) you mentioned.

The "Charte de Kurukan Fuga"; was reconstructed by Mandinka «
traditionnistes » from Senegal, Mali and Guinea at a workshop on
community radios in the Guinean town of Kankan in march 1998. This
workshop was financed by the Francophonie and Swiss Cooperation. The
traditionnistes first confronted their version in a closed hearing.
The Guinean judge Siriman Kouyaté then translated the proceedings
into French and organised it in 44 articles and a Preamble to turn it
into the equivalent of a modern constitution (Kouyaté 2003). This
constitutional version is supposed to be published soon by the
African Union, with a preface by Djibril Tamsir Niane. For the online
version of this newly born constitution, see
http://www.africa-orale.org/charte.rtf .

Souleymane Kanté(Amselle 2001:198), and before him Djibril Tamsir
Niane (Niane 1960:138) already referred to the Kurukan Fuga gathering
and statement. The 1236 (sometimes 1235) date, is an invention of the
French colonial administrator Maurice Delafosse.

Like the Charte du Mande, the Charte de Kurukan Fuga is presented by
its promoters as a "hidden treasury"; from the West African past. It
is already the basis for claims of endogenous origins of modern
concepts (decentralisation, local democracy, environment
conservation, feminism, human rights, cultural diversity, welfare
state). In 2000 in Bamako, a calendar of the "year 764 of Kurukan
Fuga"; was issued. In Senegal, the Charter of Kurukan Fuga is
already included in textbooks next to the Constitution of Senegal and
major UN texts on human rights.http://h-net.msu.edu/cg i-bin/logbrowse.pl?trx=vx& list=h-africa&month=0705 &week=d&msg=IlIfqapG/L QWpt3yiw4nbg&user=&pw=

Glad you like it. I'm happy to post it again. Maybe you'll get thrown off topix again. Just to remind you what a mental case you are. Stalkers like you need to be reminded of what a boil on the ass of society they are. Stalking women and putting their personal information on the internet is a crime. Maybe if the FBI is cruising the threads they'll see it and look you up! Enjoy Waxballs. Have a great day.

Oh, and I would report someone if I saw them breaking into YOUR house. Or abusing a member of YOUR family. I guess you and I are different in that respect. And I'm very sorry for that. Not for me but for you.

Here's the reality:
Those the Democrats call "rich" don't even have that much in earnings to be taxed if you taxed them at 100 percent and made them destitute. You still don't have the money to pay for Obama's government.
So, the question still remains.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
After you tax everything everyone currently paying income taxes, you still don't have enough money to pay for Obama's government.

You are a liar and a fool.
""Here is a list of the top 10 corporate deadbeats and slackers:
1) Exxon Mobil made $19 billion in profits in 2009. Exxon not only paid no federal income taxes, it actually received a $156 million rebate from the IRS, according to its SEC filings.
4) Chevron received a $19 million refund from the IRS last year after it made $10 billion in profits in 2009.
6) Valero Energy, the 25th largest company in America with $68 billion in sales last year received a $157 million tax refund check from the IRS and, over the past three years, it received a $134 million tax break from the oil and gas manufacturing tax deduction.
9) ConocoPhillips, the fifth largest oil company in the United States, made $16 billion in profits from 2007 through 2009, but received $451 million in tax breaks through the oil and gas manufacturing deduction.
----------
Out of the top ten deadbeats, oil companies comprise 4 of the spots.
You were saying something about specifics??
Read it and weep, nitwit.
ExxonMobil in 2011 made $27.3 billion in cash payments for income taxes. Chevron paid $17 billion and ConocoPhillips $10.6 billion. And not only were these the highest amounts in absolute terms, when compared with the rest of the 25 most profitable U.S. companies, the trio also had the highest effective tax rates. Exxon’s tax rate was 42.9%, Chevron’s was 48.3% and Conoco’s was 41.5%. That’s even higher than the 35% U.S. federal statutory rate, which is already the highest tax rate among developed nations.
The lowest were automakers Ford and GM, despite $20 billion and $9 billion in net income, respectively, paid a scant $270 million and $570 million in taxes.
Just what are those tax breaks the president wants to take away from Big Oil? Here’s the three biggest ones. First off, the president doesn’t think that oil companies should be able to get credit on their U.S. income tax bills for all the billions in income taxes they pay to oil-rich regimes around the world. Second, the president doesn’t think Big Oil should be allowed to deduct from taxable income some of those costs incurred in exploring for oil and drilling wells. Third, the president wants to cancel oil companies’ domestic manufacturing tax deduction of 6% of the value of oil and gas they produce in the United States.
Left-leaning tax groups like the Citizens for Tax Justice try to make the case that ExxonMobil pays tax of just 13% or so on its U.S. profits. But if Exxon pays a smaller portion of its taxes in the U.S. it’s because it faces huge tax bills overseas in countries like Angola where the petroleum income tax is as high as 70%. Like every U.S. multinational, Exxon gets tax credits that offset their U.S. tax liability by the amount of tax paid to other countries.
The deduction for oil drilling costs isn’t much different from the deductions that pharmaceutical companies are allowed to take for research and development costs (no one has proposed taking those away). And as for the domestic manufacturing deduction, every other company that manufactures anything in the U.S. can deduct up to 9% of the income they generate on those goods. Right now, oil companies only get a 6% deduction on the oil and gas they produce.

Republicans Mask Their Conservative Agenda

When President Obama won in November the electorate also rendered a verdict on the priorities of the two major political parties. Democrats, most voters believe, are more concerned with the plight of the middle class than Republicans, who ran on a platform of actually lowering income taxes on wealthy Americans.

In the intervening months, Republican operatives have become practitioners of a new kind of alchemy, attempting with little success to convince voters that the right’s long-standing agenda — reduced regulation for big business, lower taxes for the wealthy and big corporations, privatized and diminished social services — is actually an array of policies that coincidentally meets the needs of the middle class.

Enter House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, whoÂ’s hit upon a new plan. If you canÂ’t turn lead into gold, go out and buy some gold paint.

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2013/02/re...

The GOPÂ’s real, immediate priorities are no different than they were before the election.

Those priorities didnÂ’t carry the day in November. And in the months since, Republicans, and the conservative movement writ large, have been debating amongst themselves whether their priorities need an overhaul, or whether they just need to shoehorn them into packaging that will appeal to the broad middle class.

That internal struggle continues to some extent over the issue of immigration reform. But the new argument on the right isnÂ’t over whether the GOPÂ’s problem is substance or salesmanship, but whether it should sell its real priorities, or a separate bill of second-order goods.
Why do you want the government telling you what to do with your life?

Why do you hate freedom so much?

Studies show countries with low rates of civilian firearms ownership are the most violent. Countries with high rates of civilian firearms ownership are the safest.

Just look to nearby Mexico if you want to see an example of the gun-grabbers’ idea of utopia. Effectively ruled by violent drug gangs in many areas, parts of Mexico are cesspools of rape, violence and murder.

I've been a Saints fan since the very beginning of the franchise.
Soccer isn't my favorite sport, although I enjoy watching it. I'm a rugby person. Rugby is the last mano-a-mano sport still played. No protection. Just laws and one referee.
I did enjoy seeing Baltimore win. A player like Ray Lewis comes along once a decade, maybe more seldomly. I liked seeing him retire with a Super Bowl win. And I also think John is a better coach than Jim.
But, San Francisco is for real. I think they are the team to beat in the NFL.
