Africa Is Not What You Might Think

When I think of Africa the first thing that comes to mind is Jungle, Lions, Apes, Hippos, and Hyenas.    These photos show you a whole new Africa .   Be sure to read the last two paragraphs at the end of the photos which I think are indeed pertinent.  Very interesting….

Mansion in Gabon  

South Africa Condos

Accra, a city in Ghana

Runion Island South Eastern Africa

Lybia, in North West Africa

Housing estate in Accra , Ghana

Obudu Resort, Nigeria

“Slum” Row houses in Nigeria 

Aerial view of Khartoum , Sudan

The Wave house at Gateway Mall, Durban , South Africa 

Surprising, modern and upscale isn't it... so how do you like the real Africa now? And ~ ~ ~ why aren't their rich helping their poor, instead of us?   Tell me again - how much foreign aid goes into these countries?

Consistent unflattering media portrayals would have you to believe something entirely different, e.g., Africa is still some kind of wild, savage, and untamed jungle.   I wonder why that is?

Have you seen the pics of the life styles in Saudi Arabia and Dubai ?   I'm beginning to believe that CANADA.. is truly the 3rd World Country and that we should stop sending our tax dollars overseas to anyone.    

I'm also convinced that the people in our government and in the media  know that WE are the third world and the most naive, gullible, and stupid people in it.   The big cities all over the world make Las Vegas look like a State Fair or a country carnival.

And that folks is where your tax money ends up going!

A Tale Of Two States

Oklahoma vs Illinois


 "A State with No Republicans!"

Some interesting data on the 'state' of Illinois ...  

There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working. Chicago
 pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S., averaging
 $110,000/year. Their pensions average 80-90% of their income.
 Wow, are Illinois and Chicago great or what?

 Be sure to read till the end. I've never heard it explained better.
 Perhaps the U.S. should pull out of Chicago.
 Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago
 vs. 221 killed in Iraq ; AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US 

Here's the Chicago chain of command: 

President:Barack Hussein Obama •

 Senator: Dick Durbin • 

 House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. • 

Governor: Pat Quinn • 

House leader: Mike Madigan • 

Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan
 (daughter of Mike) •

 Rahm Emanuel •

 The leadership in Illinois - all Democrats. • Thank you for the combat
 zone in Chicago . • Of course, they're all blaming each other. •
 Can't blame Republicans; there aren't any!
 Let us get ALL the facts out while we are at it:

 Chicago school system rated one of the worst in the country. Can't
 blame Republicans; there aren't any!
 State pension fund $78; Billion in debt, worst in country. Can't blame
 Republicans; there aren't any!
 Cook County ( Chicago ) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can't
 blame Republicans; there aren't any!
 This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois . And
 he is going to 'fix' Washington politics for us?
 George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.
 He was replaced by Rob Blagojevich, who is, that's right, also in
 And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. resigned, .. and that's right, he
 and his wife both are in prison also.
 The Land of Lincoln , where our Governors and Representatives make our
 license plates. What?

 As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago, nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.
 "Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the
 Government take care of him better take a closer look at the American
 Don't forget Detroit , another great example of a Democratic empire…
 With all the bad news, there is hope, so let’s go to:


 OKLAHOMA - may soon have plenty of new residents!


 Oklahoma is the only state that Obama did not win even one county in the last
 election... While everyone is focusing on Arizona ’s new law, look
 at what Oklahoma has been doing!!!

An update from Oklahoma : 

Oklahoma; law passed, 37 to 9; an amendment to place the Ten
 Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state,
 based on Christian values... HB 1330.
 Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.
 Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal
 immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want
 to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB 1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.
 Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.>
 Recently OK passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all
 illegal's to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes.
 Pelosi said it was unconstitutional; SB 1102.
 Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.
 Several weeks ago, OK passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign
 state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining Texas,
 Montana and Utah as the only states to do so.
 More states are likely to follow: Louisiana , Alabama , Georgia ,
 Carolinas, Kentucky , Missouri , Arkansas , West Virginia , Mississippi
 and Florida .

 Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up
 once again. HJR 1003.
 The federal Government has made bold steps to take away guns.
 Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have
 the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm sure that was a
 setback for the criminals The Liberals didn't like it -- But....
 Guess what... Oklahoma did it anyway.
 Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL
 drivers’ license exams will be printed in English, and only English,
 and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but
 the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want
 to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple.
 By the way, the Liberals don't like any of this either.

 Guess what... who cares... Oklahoma is doing it anyway!

What's In A Name?

So the US patient and trademark office decided to take the protection provided by federal laws away from the Washington Redskins because some find their team name offensive.

(this is what I consider offensive)

 Nevertheless, here are my criticisms of this decision:Section (2)(a) of the Trademark Act bars the registration of any trademark that is "immoral" "scandalous" or "disparaging." In other words, a civil servant executing the registration is allowed to be the arbiter of morality.

 Do we really want that? What if an IRS agent decided your choice of banks was offensive because it was owned by a religious order that the agent thought was immoral for its belief in the worship of cats? Would they then be right to do an extensive audit of your financial holdings to possibly find taxpayer fraud? I know, the IRS analogy is a bit timely but I found it to be an excellent comparison.

Americans must realize that the political correctness illness is gradually becoming a plague. When a government agency begins to bestow opportunity (affirmative action) or take value such as the trademark of an American business, we are all in a very bad place. 

The IT Guys Are Doing Their Job

This is really special.
