and i think it's just ok and not ok! (be assured of deliberate use of words here!)
Obama? he sure is a star! some Americans call him a rock star! whatever! he sure got the crowd following him just like Michael Jackson! what is left is for Obama to start having a skin collour change (he's almost there by nature and now's time for the artificial too!) and maybe get plastic for a nose and chin! MJ sure did have a hold on the world. POP star!! yeah!
so i have nothing special about the flimsy fantasies pal. Obama is human like me and that is fine! i remember the very day he announced his interest in the Democratic ticket and i stuck with him straight on having already warmed up to him while the background checking on his potential was ongoing! so i supported Obama against Hillary and the rest of the pack. and i remember my delight when i stayed up to the suffer of heavy-eyes in my hotel room that fateful morning in Rabat after watching and listening to Obama 'accepting' the Democratic ticket!
i'm drawn naturally to this man pal. i'm because he marks such a sharp difference from what Bush the bush gave this world. i share a lot in common in terms of thought with this man! and i respect him more because he is ready to admit that all the ideas he espouses are very much age old (check his inaugural speech). that we must not embark on 'foolish' (my word) wars like in Iraq! that the US must engage rest of the world in talks to reduce threats to life (nukes babe!). such things pal, such things make me respect this man! and he even inspired me to write FLAME!
but this same man has shit up his head. he says for example that Americans must not apologize for their way of life (check his inaugural speech still). and he reaffirms such 'block-headed' support for Israel against the Arabs which i believe is nothing but stupidity no matter how it may be a good game plan to win support from the Jews! how could Americans claim not to care a hoot about their way of life! IS THAT NOT EVEN A CONTRADICTION FOR ALL THE CHAMPIONING OF GREEN ENERGY BY OBAMA HIMSELF??? how could they when the amount of fuel they alone consume is a big telling on global warming! how about the savagery of the slave-trade of yesteryear from which they benefitted greatly. even the Whitehouse where Obama has his office was built by slaves with hard labour???
i did not surpport Obama because i believe in the Democratic Party. no pal! i did not support Obama because he's (half) black or because the wife is fully black. no pal, i'm no racist! the collour of the skin don't mean the collour of the shit! right???
surely i wonder how many people would have been so gay (ass loving really!) if Kwame Kilpatrick was the prez of US visiting Ghana instead of Obama for all his ills????? and so therein lies the hard truth and irony!!! i would have probably held up a placard to demonstrate against him. for all the foolishness of our authorities i feel sad i wasn't able to do a thing like that against Bush when he came to town! that man deserves worse than shoes! a nuke up his bottom would not even suffice!
so Obama is president of the USA now and he has come to Ghana! he's delivered his much awaited speech and what a brilliant speech for for saying the west is not to blame for Zimbabwe's woes! surely part of the blame goes there especially UK.
meanwhile, there's been a lot of nonsensical talk. fantasizing o babe! some say he should have visited Kenya first (much like Mills visited his home region to be crowned 'okunyi'). others say he should have visited Nigeria first!
and still some like Elizabeth Ohene would spew more shit by saying it is Ghana he is visiting first in Africa (does she know the map at all???) because the Egypt trip does not count; because he did not sleep over (but Clinton did not sleep in Ghana when he visited and it was a visit) and that he did not go there with his family! such shit! and such insult to the Egyptians and all who understand that Egypt must not be maligned foolishly. Egypt is a founding member of the OAU (now AU)!!! and there are moslems all over African and in Ghana too! so what's this former minister's point there??? she deserves a whip on the bare... this instant!!!
and just listen to these ones too talk uselessly about Obama's colour here:
KUFUOR speaks but does not seem (yes seem!) to know his own nature here:
listen to the audio but too bad pal; if you don't understand Twi. it was better for our past president to use that medium of communication else he would have rendered to us such things as: 'upholded' instead of 'upheld'. the grammer and diction sometimes is better than mine! other times too, hmmmmmmmm! so you too learn some Twi!
my dear Kufused sure knows how to bid time to release whatever bothers him for attention (Obama is in town and world media is reporting live and dead)! so Kufuor comes to ask us "what is per diem?" claiming his pay for the first 4yrs of his terms was so small compared to other presidents in Africa. he even says we should consider his law training and that even if he was so dumb he would have earned a lot lot more in the law profession!
Pal, theres no excuse to be made for any dick, tom or harry who chooses to serve the public! definitely we did not go begging anyone to lead us! Kufuor chose to elect himself for us to elect him as president! we did not force him. so why would Kufuor be telling us about the inadequacy of the Osu Castle to house his 'multitude' of grand-children and for which reason he deemed it unfit for his housing and therefore chose to live in his own house! why didn't he leave us alone to go looking after his grand-kids instead of hanging in there wasting our time???
at what cost was it to the taxpayer??? he should do the calculation and tell us all including himself! he should tell us how much fuel he consumed by just traveling from his home to the office and back!and this man tells us that it's not in his nature to be ostentatious??? what was he doing with motorcade after leaving office??? what was he doing with presidential vehicles after leaving office???? what in God's name did he buy those gold chains he awarded himself for??? Kufour obviously, either does not know his own nature or is further Kufused or that he does not know me! which one pal?
i want Kufuor to speak more but he does not! that's ok! but he must not try to water down his failures! those were gigantic failures indeed on his part! damn! the man lost a great opportunity to raise the bar and that's what i'm talking about! so then why won't Mill's and his Mutanka be thinking they can give us a 'chichinga' Muntaka clearance and we should be ok. nonsense! Mills better buck up now and verily verily right now!
so Obama has spoken to Africa! all the call for democracy is right! but i'm not one of those who think Obama must come from America before we learn to uphold democracy! Bostwana is not doing bad. SA is not bad and so Tanzania. we just need now push the rest in same/similar direction! i believe DR. Congo admidst all the chaos have the potential to rise and so too Ivory Coast and Kenya and Zimbabwe and Nigeria for Yar Adua's enthronement and Somalia and all!!!
so Obama would continue to have the crowds following him but Africa must rise now and now or else a great thunder and lightening and earthquake and tsunami and hurricane and typhoon must all combine and descend on the land!!!
