It's almost been a year!

Hi guys,

It was almost a year since I last made comments on this board. I'm still alive, very much so. Just have been swamped with life.

Fear not, hopefully we can post more information as the months progress towards the end of the year.

Cheers!

Congrats to re-elected US President: Barack Hussein Obama.

I don't think he should be ashamed or feel guilty for his middle name anymore!

But there is one note about the recent US Presidential elections, despite a still flagging economy and seemingly lowering American world stature, Americans took the idea of the American Dream in that of Pres. Obama and what he as President stood for.

I guess that is one thing we should never sell short. The idea that the American Dream in that you can make it and have a shot at it in America, lives on and is stronger than their problems or current circumstances.

There was no way possible Mitt Romney- the GOP candidate- could have won on that score. You know why? Because he appeared to be a part of the same old, same old. Nothing path breaking about him when pitted against Pres. Obama's exceptionality.

Another thing of note is that now, finally, the GOP should begin to court African Americans and Latinos and even Asians as a priority. I think the racial barriers need to come down first, and not necessarily the other social items to which liberals stand for- gender issues and socialist principles.

I happen to feel that Blacks and Latinos have more socially to identify within the GOP than they do with the Democrats.

Well, for now, congrats to the Pres. Obama and his re-election. May God continue to guide him, through all that he does.

Ok... a little late with posting a great deal of material, so bear with me!

Hi all,

Wow... I have not posted anything since July 18th. It's really bad man, really bad. I forget about my blog- which has brought me so much fame from these writings.

There has been alot of things going on, most of which the government in The Bahamas- my country- has changed. So, I have new responsibilities- not that I'm a government employee, but it's just the way things happen.

Anyways... what about the attack that killed US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens? (RIP)

Apparently, he was killed in the attack- smoke inhalation- after protesters set fire to the US Embassy compound, destroying the entire thing. (a short video on youtube was posted by protesters dragging Ambassador Stevens out of the compound, but he was still alive... they were screaming that "he is alive" and thanking God that he was.

There is a man wanted for questioning in organizing this attack in Libya. Apparently, he was a former Gitmo detainee who was released into the custody of the Libyan authorities prior to Qaddafi being ousted- he was supposed to be kept in jail.

In any case, the official line- and impetus for the attack- was that it was sparked by a 15 min trailer of a movie produced by an American independent film maker, where the Prophet Mohammad, was mocked and put into a situation where he was called a racist and a homosexual as well as a pedophile. (yea... that would do it)

So, as you can imagine, Muslims were livid. Thus leading to the attack in Libya, and the protests in other Arab/Middle Eastern countries. (which is quite unfortunate)...

Suffice to say that the US has not retaliated as yet. Probably not going to be anything until after the US Presidential elections in November- which by all intents and purposes, seems as if Mr. Obama is going to win in a very easy election. Even these recent attacks, which hit at the core of his foreign policy endeavours and his bonafides on national security, won't put a dent into his campaign armour.

More from me later... hope I got the more salient points on the recent protests.

Syrian Defence Minister killed in blast.

Ok... either the USofA, NATO or Israel is giving the Liberation of Damascus army assistance. You just don't "kill" the Defence Minister of a country, one such as Syria, without a little bit of help. For the mere fact that these Syrian insurgents are keeping this thing going should give you an idea that they are externally funded- to the hilt!

Egypt has a new president.

The Egyptian elections are finally over. Yahoo Newslink

I guess it's over, for now. Mohammed Morsi, the Islamist, won by nearly 52% of the vote. Hosni Mubarak's prime minister, Ahmed Safiq, garnered 48.3% of the vote.

This ends the end of military rule in Egypt after the protests that ousted former president Mubarak out of power.

Good news for the people of Egypt!

New Bahamian Goverment!

Ten days ago, May 7th, 2012 The Bahamas elected a new government, led by the Right. Honourable Perry G. Christie. Congrats to my home town. The victory was a kind of vindication for Mr. Christie having being beaten by the then former prime minister and now former prime minister, the Right. Honourable Hubert A. Ingraham, 2007.

Having said all of that I wish the new government all the best success. The victory was a landslide, having won 29 out of the 38 seats available. The Bahamian people have spoken, God is with them.
