I wonder if this report concerns the OBAMA supporters 30 million living in slavery worldwide: WFF report
A report by an international foundation on modern slavery has revealed that nearly 30 million people are enslaved across the globe.

The index released by the Walk Free Foundation (WFF) on Thursday said the slaves are either trafficked into brothels, forced into manual labor, fall victims to debt bondage, or are even born into servitude.

Almost half of these people are in India, where “by far the largest proportion of this problem is the exploitation of Indian citizens within India itself, particularly through debt bondage and bonded labor,” the survey found.

The index also showed that aside from India, the problem is most rampant in the West African country of Mauritania, where four percent of the population is estimated to be held in slavery.

The report by the Australian-based group described Mauritania as a nation with “deeply entrenched hereditary slavery,” where “people in slavery may be bought and sold, rented out and given away as gifts.”

Benin, Gambia, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Haiti and Nepal are among other countries with the highest prevalence of modern slavery, the report said.

The WFF index ranked 162 countries on the number of people living in slavery, the risk of enslavement, and the strength of government action to counter the illegal activity.

Figures indicate human trafficking along with arms dealing is the second largest industry in the world after drug dealing.

I found this story Ironic Hungary’s President plagiarised his doctoral thesis from a Bulgarian

The President of Hungary Pal Schmitt is accused of copying almost verbatim 80 per cent of his 1992 doctoral thesis from a similar work published by a Bulgarian sports official in 1987.

Conservatives Misunderstand What Went Wrong Under Bush

You'd swear from today's rhetoric that the problem was too much compromise. Nope.

The Tea Party is composed largely of Republicans who supported George W. Bush when he was the GOP standard-bearer, voting for him twice and criticizing him far less frequently than they defended him, only to rebel against his record at the end of his second term. At that point, partisan loyalty and shared hatred of liberals finally gave way to the realization that the GOP's time in power was a disaster for conservatives.

Humans seldom look inward when assigning blame for bygone disasters, and the story conservatives have settled on seems to be that establishment Republicans have long been selling them out by failing to fight hard enough. As a Fox News commentator put it, echoing talking points used by many hardliners, "I’m sure we will hear establishment apologists calling the events of recent days a compromise. But seeing how the president refused to compromise, it’s more likely the Grand Old Party was the only one bending. Establishment Republicans always talk about doing the right thing for the nation, no matter the price. But when push comes to shove, they always throw in the towel."

What ought to be evident, when Tea Partiers reflect on what they disliked about the Bush years, is that neither insufficient fight nor excessive compromise was the problem. The Iraq War, the most disastrous, budget-busting initiative of the aughts, occurred when the GOP establishment fought for war and didn't give up. The K Street Project involved neither capitulation nor compromising with Democrats. And conservatives were pleased when the establishment "threw in the towel" on immigration reform and the Harriet Miers nomination.

Many in the Tea Party seem to have conflated compromising one's principles, a bad thing, with negotiating to reach agreements that make both sides better off. The latter kind of compromise is the only way American government can function when power is divided. There is no logical reason that it should be regarded by conservatives as a dirty word—the Bush years weren't bad for conservatives because of negotiated deals that gave both sides some of what they wanted.

Pretending that compromise is what went wrong during the Bush years helps conservatives evade responsibility for supporting an agenda many parts of which they find indefensible in hindsight. It permits them to blame Democrats and establishment Republicans for events they themselves only rebelled against after the fact, and to delude themselves into thinking that everything will get better if only they vehemently insist on getting their way, sans compromise, all of the time.

Who wouldn't want to believe that's all success takes? It's a pretty lie that talk-radio hosts find it easy to tell over and over again, despite contrary evidence, because conservatives want to believe that it's true. Reality is much harder to face. In order to mount a comeback and wield influence in American politics, conservatives need to face their own flaws, negotiate savvy compromises with President Obama and Democrats, build credibility and momentum with small gains in the short term, persuade people of their ideas and governing vision in the medium term, and implement their agenda by winning elections rather than brinkmanship. But hard truths don't attract a large enough audience to sustain a radio show.

MSN - "Did Americans learn anything from the partial shutdown?

"Obama says it showed just how many things, large and small, the government does to help people.

"Conservatives saw the opposite lesson — that federal workers can disappear without being missed."

Obama believes the government is the solution to all our problems and punitive measures including shutting down open-aired parks and veterans' memorials is how the government helps people, large and small.

Punitive measures in Obamacare is another way Obama believes government helps people.

Obama's idea of how government helps people is punishing them into submissiveness.

Don't know when he's going to figure out most of us don't want big government's help and aren't so easily browbeat into submission.

Well Obamacare works in Kenya A man is being held for the murder of an 18 year old woman at Kawangware area of Nairobi after he surrendered to authorities at the Muthangari police station.

Geoffrey Machui reportedly killed the woman only identified as Mweni whose mutilated remains were found Sunday in his rented house in Kawangware’s Gatina area.

Witnesses said Machui, the practicing witchdoctor, returned home in the company of the woman on Saturday night. However neighbours said they did not hear any commotion in the house till morning when they made the grisly find.

Witch doctor

“We saw them together going into his house, many people come for consultation as he is a witch doctor, we did not bother as we thought it was one of his clients,” a Phoebe Ateyo said.

The witness said a child told them the woman had been killed after peeping through an opening in the iron sheet walled house and saw her headless body lying in a pool of blood.

Decapitated

Police found the decapitated human head inside a basket, the remaining torso sprawled on the floor and intestines that had been ripped off from the woman’s stomach next to her body.

Parts of a human heart were also found at the scene.

Police took photographs of assorted paraphernalia including gourds, calabashes, bottles containing concoctions, a toy snake and a live chicken inside his rented house.
