The African colonial (AC) is a person who by means of their birth or lineage has a direct connection with Africa. However, unlike Africans like me, their worldviews have been largely shaped not by the indigenous beliefs of a specific African tribe but by the ideals of the European imperialism that overwhelmed and dominated Africa during the colonial period. AC's have no real regard for their specific African traditions or histories. AC's use aspects of their African culture as one would use pieces of costume jewelry: things of little or no value that can be thoughtlessly discarded when they become a negative distraction, or used on a whim to decorate oneself in order to seem exotic.(Hint: Obama's Muslim heritage).

On the other hand, AC's strive to be the best at the culture that they inherited from Europe. Throughout the West, they are tops in their professions as lawyers, doctors, engineers, Ivy League professors and business moguls; this is all well and good. It's when they decide to engage us as politicians that things become messy and convoluted.

The African colonial politician (ACP) feigns repulsion towards the hegemonic paradigms of Western civilization. But at the same time, he is completely enamored of the trappings of its aristocracy or elite culture. The ACP blames and caricatures whitey to no end for all that has gone wrong in the world. He convinces the masses that various forms of African socialism are the best way for redressing the problems that European colonialism motivated in Africa. However, as opposed to really being a hard-core African Leftist who actually believes in something, the ACP uses socialist themes as a way to disguise his true ambitions: a complete power grab whereby the "will of the people" becomes completely irrelevant.

Barack Obama is all of the above. The only difference is that he is here playing (colonial) African politics as usual.

In his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father -- an eloquent piece of political propaganda -- Obama styles himself as a misunderstood intellectual who is deeply affected by the sufferings of black people, especially in America and Africa. In the book, Obama clearly sees himself as an African, not as a black American. And to prove this, he goes on a quest to understand his Kenyan roots. He is extremely thoughtful of his deceased father's legacy; this provides the main clue for understanding Barack Obama.

Barack Obama Sr. was an African colonial to the core; in his case, the apple did not fall far from the tree. All of the telltale signs of Obama's African colonialist attitudes are on full display in the book -- from his feigned antipathy towards Europeans to his view of African tribal associations as distracting elements that get in the way of "progress".(On p. 308 of Dreams From My Father, Obama says that African tribes should be viewed as an "ancient loyalties".)

Like imperialists of Old World Europe, the ACP sees their constituents not as free thinking individuals who best know how to go about achieving and creating their own means for success. Instead, the ACP sees his constituents as a flock of ignorant sheep that need to be led -- oftentimes to their own slaughter.

Like the European imperialist who spawned him, the ACP is a destroyer of all forms of democracy.

Here are a few examples of what the British did in order to create (in 1914) what is now called Nigeria and what Obama is doing to you:

1 Convince the people that "clinging" to any aspect of their cultural (tribal) identity or history is bad and regresses the process of "unity". British Imperialists deeply feared people who were loyal to anything other than the state. "Tribalism" made the imperialists have to work harder to get people to just fall in line. Imperialists pitted tribes against each other in order to create chaos that they then blamed on ethnic rivalry. Today many "educated" Nigerians, having believed that their traditions were irrelevant, remain completely ignorant of their ancestry and the history of their own tribes.

2 Confiscate the wealth and resources of the area that you govern by any means necessary in order to redistribute wealth. The British used this tactic to present themselves as empathetic and benevolent leaders who wanted everyone to have a "fair shake". Imperialists are not interested in equality for all. They are interested in controlling all.

3 Convince the masses that your upper-crust university education naturally puts you on an intellectual plane from which to understand everything even when you understand nothing. Imperialists were able to convince the people that their elite university educations allowed them to understand what Africa needed. Many of today's Nigerians-having followed that lead-hold all sorts of degrees and certificates-but what good are they if you can't find a job?

4 Lie to the people and tell them that progress is being made even though things are clearly becoming worse. One thing that the British forgot to mention to their Nigerian constituents was that one day, the resources that were being used to engineer "progress" (which the British had confiscated from the Africans to begin with!) would eventually run out. After WWII, Western Europe could no longer afford to hold on to their African colonies. So all of the counterfeit countries that the Europeans created were then left high-and-dry to fend for themselves. This was the main reason behind the African independence movements of the1950 and 60's. What will a post-Obama America look like?

5 Use every available media outlet to perpetuate the belief that you and your followers are the enlightened ones-and that those who refuse to support you are just barbaric, uncivilized, ignorant curmudgeons. This speaks for itself.

America, don't be fooled. The Igbos were once made up of a confederacy of clans that ascribed to various forms of democratic government. They took their eyes off the ball and before they knew it, the British were upon them. Also, understand this: the African colonial who is given too much political power can only become one thing: a despot.

Bud Wright: On religion, Twinkies, turkeys and Fox News

Odds and ends, in which your friendly neighborhood columnist attempts to pique interest without causing a spike in the blood pressure among our readership. Call it a diplomatic gesture in honor of the holiday season.

But first, a brief rant. I apologize for the disharmony. I am informed that the occasion of my giving thanks for my family and friends, last week, unleashed peevish rumblings among the anointed over my omission of a higher power.

Let me be abundantly clear about this. My spirituality (whatever form it may take) is my business. I am keenly aware that it is customary for many religious fundamentalists to harangue others for not being as pious as they. They should bear in mind, though, that spirituality is neither an exhibition nor a competition. Hair shirts are so last millennium. To those for whom that constitutes blasphemy, I say — good for you. Rain down hellfire and damnation all you wish, on whomever you like — including me.

Just don’t expect anyone to care — including me.

Moving on.

• In a frightening turn of events, the perennial lunchbox staple Hostess Twinkies are supposedly on the verge of extinction. The right–wing media has gone bonkers over the “fact” that unions drove an iconic American brand out of business.

Not so fast, though. At the same time that Hostess was stuffing an 8 percent pay cut and a 32 percent cut in benefits down the gullets of its employees, the CEO was busy raising his pay by 300 percent. As Hostess was in the process of going through the latest in a series of bankruptcies, top executives were being awarded 60 percent to 100 percent pay increases while simultaneously stiffing veteran employees over 160 million worth of earned — but unpaid — pensions. 18,000 hourly wage earners are now unemployed – and it’s the fault of the unions?

By the way, don’t purchase any of the Twinkies going for 50 to 100 bucks a box on eBay. Trust me, they’ll be back. The bakers, however, will be earning less than half of what their predecessors did — while working part time and without benefits.

• President Obama pardoned two turkeys on Wednesday (the avian variety — no members of Congress were present). How this ridiculous ritual began is anyone’s guess. Sources differ, with most stating that George H. W. Bush began it. This was around the time that he was rumored to have said “I never said no new taxes! I said no, keep George in Texas!”

The distressing part of this story is the mortality rate of the pardoned birds. They typically live less than a year — often far less. Wild turkeys are a pretty hardy breed (and it blends well with Cheerwine — but that’s another story). The domestic variety, on the other hand, are overfed, under-exercised and dumb as a box of hammers. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?

• As is typical of me, I did not leave my home on Black Friday. The reasons for this are numerous. For instance, many of the shoppers are bat-spit crazy. Safety was a consideration, of course — as was the oppressive traffic and the anxiety associated with large, angry mobs.

And did I mention that many of the shoppers are bat-spit crazy? I attended one of these “Walking Dead” conventions over twenty years ago at the old Elizabeth City Wal-Mart location in search of a then-new game system for my son (I think it was Super Nintendo). I barely escaped with my life.

There were more uniformed policemen in attendance than I have ever seen gathered in one place either before or since. They still couldn’t control the crowd. The pushing and shoving became a full-scale riot when the doors finally opened, with people trampling over each other and the cops looking resigned to the carnage. Blood flew.

My son got Legos that year.

• Two weeks after the dust has settled from the last election, Republican Rep. Allan West of Florida has finally conceded ...

Three words to define Obama 2.0

By Michael Goodwin

Published November 16, 2012

New York Post

So much for the honeymoon. Just a week after his re-election, President Obama showed only occasional flashes of conciliation Wednesday, with his press conference sounding more like a sequel to the bitter campaign than a fresh start to a second term.

Whatever the topic, he was by turns evasive, strident and pugnacious. No wonder the stock market took another tumble, with the Dow down a staggering 685 points since Nov. 6. His combative attitude suggests Obama wants a fight instead of bipartisan solutions to America’s problems.

Britain to invest in proton therapy after boy's Jacksonville treatment
Alex Barnes, now 5, is cancer-free after his treatment last fall at the UF
Proton Therapy Institute, his mom says

Convinced that it was his best shot at survival, Alex Barnes' parents rushed
the 4-year-old last fall from their home in England to Jacksonville for six
weeks of proton therapy.

The results were two-fold: Alex's aggressive brain cancer all but vanished,
and impressed British health officials have begun taking steps to establish
the country's first proton therapy center.

England Death Panels

Sentenced to death on the NHS

Patients with terminal illnesses are being made to die prematurely under an
NHS scheme to help end their lives, leading doctors have warned.

In a letter to The Daily Telegraph, a group of experts who care for the
terminally ill claim that some patients are being wrongly judged as close to
death.

Under NHS guidance introduced across England to help doctors and medical
staff deal with dying patients, they can then have fluid and drugs withdrawn
and many are put on continuous sedation until they pass away.

The babies born in hospital corridors: Bed shortage forces 4,000 mothers to
give birth in lifts, offices and hospital toilets

By Jenny Hope and Nick Mcdermott

Last updated at 8:36 AM on 26th August 2009

Thousands of women are having to give birth outside maternity wards because
of a lack of midwives and hospital beds.

The lives of mothers and babies are being put at risk as births in locations ranging from lifts to toilets - even a caravan - went up 15 per cent last year to almost 4,000.

Fox News on top: Cable net celebrates 10 years at #1 in ratings

By Dylan Stableford | The Cutline

Last fall, Fox News celebrated its 15th anniversary with a lavish party in New York. Fox News president Roger Ailes, who launched the channel in 1996, toasted 700 or so staffers that night, telling them, "Losing is highly overrated as a learning experience."

On Tuesday afternoon, when Nielsen releases its final ratings for the month of January, the "fair and balanced" network will mark an arguably more important milestone: 10 consecutive years at the top of the cable news rankings.

Liberal bias in the media occurs when liberal ideas have undue

influence on the coverage or selection of news stories.
Example:

Charles Gibson Interviews of Obama & Palin

Obama interview [transcript]:

How does it feel to break a glass ceiling?

How does it feel to "win"?

How does your family feel about your "winning" breaking a
glass ceiling?

Who will be your VP?

Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP?

Will you accept public finance?

What issues is your campaign about?

Will you visit Iraq?

Will you debate McCain at a town hall?

What did you think of your competitor's [Clinton] speech?

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Palin interview [transcript]:

Do you have enough qualifications for the job you're seeking? Specifically

have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?

Aren't you conceited to be seeking this high level job?

Questions about foreign policy

-territorial integrity of Georgia

-allowing Georgia and Ukraine to be members of NATO

-NATO treaty

-Iranian nuclear threat

-what to do if Israel attacks Iran

-Al Qaeda motivations

-the Bush Doctrine

-attacking terrorists harbored by Pakistan

Is America fighting a holy war?[misquoted Palin]

There's no doubt the Charles Gibson interviews showed extreme prejudice against Palin and extreme favoritism towards Obama.He constantly questioned her ability to lead but never questioned Obama's ability to lead, all the more amazing considering that Palin was the only one with executive experience and the presidency is the highest level executive job in politics.

Obama & Rachel Maddow: Frequent White House Visitor

Rachel Maddow: Frequent White House Visitor

By Alexander Abad-Santos | The Atlantic Wire

A look at visitor logs from The White House has MSNBC's star being cleared to enter The White House seven times and meeting with Obama face-to-face three of those times--a number on par with King Abdullah of Jordan. That's what the conservative-leaning Neil Munro at the conservative-leaning Daily Caller reports.(Munro's piece doesn't state the specificities of how far back he looked at the logs--it looks as though the visits are all from this
past year.) He concludes, "Rachel Maddow is the president's favorite media hack." Sure, the piece gives reasons as to why Maddow's visits are out of the ordinary (her ratings aren't as good as Fox's)

I am as bipartisan in my criticism of you as I am in my politics. So before any of you accuse me of bias, or being a republican or democrat, please know that I did not vote in the presidential election. I watched every night of both conventions and every single debate. I read newspapers and watched many different news shows to be as informed as I could be. I came to the conclusion that neither candidate was worthy of my vote so I only voted for state and local candidates. My vote, as was my wife’s, was split almost equally between both parties. And no, we do not take responsibility for any one’s loss or win.
Don’t bother replying because I won’t be here to read it. If you cave dwellers choose to spend your time here, then you deserve the non productive lives you lead. I would much rather live my life in the sunshine of the real world, with real people. People I know and love. Not people I know by their avatars and the lies they tell about themselves on line. Plus, I already know what you will say. You will call me a liar but your own prolific posts here prove that I am not. You will accuse me of being a sock. I am not. I have only posted under this name. And only a few times. You will call me a bastard, or a few other derogatory names. Why? Simply because I held the mirror of your own sad, extremely narrow little lives up to your face.
