Wounded Nation

In case you think that we have problems here in the US you may want to consider the plight of South Africans who are experiencing the collapse of a great nation, which once had a very strong economy, into a third world, African morass.  The "barbarians" have squandered the promise which Nelson Mandela and many others fought and struggled for.  In no uncertain terms, South Africa was the "last best hope" for stabilizing Africa.  Her strong economy and, yes, democratic culture (notwithstanding apartheid) was a good example to other sub-Saharan nations - she was once the "Powerhouse of Africa."  That opportunity has now passed. 

What is the "Fate of Africa?"  It has been several generations since the colonial period ended.  Why is Africa actually devolving when compared to the rest of the world?

Some of the key mistakes that the new South African government has made are;
  • Equal opportunity - it a massive over-reaction to the apartheid laws of the past, the government passed laws requiring black majority ownership in most categories of business.  Even small companies are required to have black members of their board of directors.
  • Unprepared and uneducated people in key positions in business and government.  Corruption and nepotism are widely practiced with total disregard to experience, training and education.
  • Facilitating the weakening of the police.  Again, in reaction to the stringent enforcement of the apartheid laws the new police force is headed by politicians and is, not only weak, but totally corrupt. 
There are many other reasons for the collapse of South Africa's economy.  Check the link for first hand opinion.

Letter to Rush about McCain

Hey Rush! - Mega-ditto's!

Today we heard that Romney has suspended his run for presidency - your listeners flooded you with emails - some blaming you for the decline and fall of the party.  Well - how short their memories are!  The Republican party has been leaving conservatives in the ditch for many years now.   We all know that the failure of this party to take critical positions has plunged our country into the mess, cultural and economic, which we now find ourselves.

Your position on McCain is not new, nor is it seminal - many of us felt this way about him long before you publicly expressed your concerns - we know you have long shared the distaste for his positions and especially the way he allowed himself to be manipulated by the liberals.  I need not list the key and important issues where he has taken an anti-conservative position - we all know them.  He will continue to destroy our American way of life side by side with his liberal buddies.  But we need not worry - he will never be elected.  The libs will knock him off with a feather because he has no backbone.

So - if there is "blame" to be assessed for the collapse of the Republican party - I am proud to stand with you and be counted!  

True scientists deny manmade global warming

"Manmade global warming" is not a real problem, but in fact is a major global effort to manipulate mankind.  Firstly, the global warming affirmers usually attack the source of any dissenting information rather than the actual facts.  The attacks question the credentials of the person who disagrees -  or makes accusations that they are associated with 'big oil." However, that is changing.  This science is very complex and many prominent scientists now have come forward to disagree with these "affirmers" and present hard facts to support their stance. You have to look to find this information;  From a U.S. Senate Report - 

"Over 400 prominent scientists from more than two dozen countries recently voiced significant objections to major aspects of the so-called "consensus" on man-made global warming. These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore."
