When Obama eventually
comes here

Vanguard [Nigeria], by Ochereome Nnanna

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 7/4/2013 2:21:42 PM

I am beginning to lose enthusiasm about seeing United States President, Barack Obama, in Nigerian on state visit. The romance factor has all but worn off. If Obama comes tomorrow, he will still have a lot of people eager to watch him on television. (Snip) Secondly, we in Nigeria and Africa as a whole, whether Christians, Muslims or traditionalists, consider homosexuality and bestiality as taboo. The West, on the other hand, has uprooted the Christian foundations of their societies and adopted atheistic definition of “freedom” or human rights. They have taken the definition beyond sane boundaries.

First, the writer makes a vague reference to ´terrorism.´ Actually, there is an all out war being waged by filthy islamofascist terrorist pigs, who are much nastier than the Arabic variety. They specialize in attacking Christian churches on sundays.

As for the bestiality comment, I was going to make a comment about barack sleeping with michelle, but that would be mean spirited, so I won´t.

Do Not Worry Mr. Nuana, pez. Obama will never go to Nigeria...It´s name is probably considered too prone to be mistaken for the infamous ´N´-Word.
Prediction:Nigeria will not see the presence of Obama.until it changes its name. [Something like: "Obamaland´]
..Sort of like- When Topeka,Ks. Changed its name for a day to"GooGLE".

Africa has become a foster child of the world´s left so they can look forward to stagnation as far as the eye can see. Obama claims developing Africa would lead to the world boiling over. It´s thinking like this that´s the real slavery but Obama won´t be condemned for it.

leftists like Obama want to see Africa as a handout nation because it gives them a reason to exist.Right wingers would try to make Africa self sufficient and we cant have none of that.

This was not a serious trip. If it had been Obama would have visited Nigeria and Algeria. A brief side trip to Niger would have been nice. Southern Nigeria is christian with a booming economy. They are an important strategic partner. They are the main force containing the jihadists in Mali. Niger is home to our new drone base. They deserve a show of gratitude and respect.

If we traded populations with Africa, totally moved everyone there here and everyone here to there, Africa would be developed and economically booming within 5 years and the US would be destitute and a welfare state. As a continent that place has more natural resources than just about any other place on earth.

This is an excellent read.

The writer remarks that it is difficult to listen to a lecture on an empty stomach - when one is hungry.

Finishes with America´s spiritual decline, especially noting the Supreme Court´s decision on homosexual marriage. The writer believes that Africa is on the upswing, that America is in decline, including spiritually. And Nigeria doesn´t want to go with it.

He makes some good points that we´ve already discussed - many times.

#6...Why even fantasize about moving over 1billion Africans from 54 countries to the continental US (only 3,717,792 square miles) from their current home base comprising 20% of the world’s total land area? Today you live in and can drive throughout the New World (the Americas), which contain the same natural resources as Africa, 30% of the world’s total land area, and just under 1billion people in only 35 countries. There is a reason why our political and economic leaders are focusing on sustaining and protecting the “Old World” (E.U.) instead of focusing on our backyard...what ever happened to the Monroe Doctrine?

Africa, and the countries therein, have their development agenda...

Also this, from the article:

Our own human rights are pro- law-abiding citizens, not pro-criminals. Our laws recognise that a person, who willfully kills his fellow citizen, when convicted through to the Supreme Court, will pay with his life. In other words, we believe in the Death Penalty. The law must fight for victims of savage termination of life, even though our laws also permit for the prerogative of mercy when applicable.

The world is waking up to the fact that Obama is a know-it-all who insists on bossing everyone else around. It is typical narcissistic behavior from a guy who thinks he´s all that and a bag of chips. Sadly, everyone else suffers for his arrogance in one way or another, more if he could get away with it. He is at heart, a dictator.

"It was on that occasion that he made his well-received call on African countries to emphasise more on strong institutions rather than strong men."

That, Nnanna, is barry obama´s fatal flaw. He is a weak, herd animal who expects the other sheep to follow the direction of the Big Sheep. America is a nation of strong people. The clash is inevitable and permanent. He will not prevail.

I loved his comment about Africans calling obama "our son." That makes Trayvon their grandson.

The drip of liberalism is starting in Africa. We used to say the same thing in this country that Nnanna is saying about gay marriage. Look at us now. It starts with a seemingly innocuous reference in a speech and in the blink of an eye you have California.

We all know what the drip that is the Colorado River did to the Western landscape.

So long Africa.

You know, the world is revealing itself as the biggest bunch of racists imaginable.

THE WORLD rooted for Obama because his skin is the color of Negroes. Even though he is not.

The color of his skin caused their emotions.

Great attitude. I hope the Nigerians will look back at the history of Christianity and see how many times the new countries have refreshed the old. Ireland took Patrick slave, but later listened to him, converted itself, and returned to re-light the fire elsewhere. how I hope Africa will take its turn to do the same.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
