This is old news but I can’t help but be angry


I am short of epithets to express my anger and dismay at this and while at it, our government must think we are blockheads for the many stupid lies they keep telling us about the Westgate affair!

This is even more annoying! Fuck KDF!

        Thank you, it was crazy business! It feels like there is one thing after another with Kenya? First the airport (ironically we were due to fly the day it burned down, and my aunt landed whilst it was still on fire in cargo) And then west gate.. bad things happen in three’s, and i do not want to think about what is next :/

    I did watch the entire first film. I will remember most the classroom of young boys memorizing the Koran. All starts with the young mind.

      The videos, especially the two last ones[one is in Kiswahili] describe the way the forces bundled the operation and looted from shops while the government is busy selling us lies! It is annoying

    This tragedy is being compounded by the misinformation being fed by both government and belief system. Once again, the two join hand-in-hand to prevent the truth from being known. How many times has this happened throughout the history of humankind? Thank you, my brother and friend, for posting this!

    Makagutu, I always appreciate your honesty. I have had many acquaintances and friends from all over the world and I notice a big difference between all of you and my American friends. You all are so aware of the shadiness of your government and military, many of my country men are not. Often Americans like to think that our leadership is trustworthy and I have often found myself debating with them otherwise. The general sentiment is “Oh, America would never do ‘that’ (fill in the blank), especially to ‘her’ own!” It drives me nuts! Because I began to doubt so much about my country in 2010, my research had a huge part to play in my deconversion from Christianity in 2012. I wish people would realize that the government continually makes back room deals with other political parties and other international governments, including their “enemies”. It’s truly all about money and power and dumbing us down to think that they and their gods are superheroes. I do think that since the Bush administration, 9-11 and all of this crazy fighting in the Middle East, Americans are beginning to seriously doubt our government and its intentions. However, I live in Tennessee and they’re not going to question anyone except Obama.

      C- my good friend, been a while since you were last seen here, hope you are well!

      I think we live in a place where we have to be always vigilant. The government and those we elect have made it their hobby to fuck with our minds taking us for fools. What saddens me though is there are not enough of us to complain loudly to have things changed and that really gets to my nerves. We have seen guys suspended for abuse of office only to return to those same offices or bigger. I will hold the government guilty any time until evidence is adduced to the contrary- call me a cynic but that is how I see our government!

    I feel your pain Mak. My gov’t here is no better than yours. They take us for dumb asses, and in many cases they got us pegged. Truth is our gov’t is a huge pile of dysfunctional B.S. pretending to be something else, what I am not sure. A spectacle to behold.

    CHope, I live in Tn too, so I can relate to your pain all too well, and congrats on your deconversion. Welcome to free thought.

      Aw, thank you shelldigger! It’s not been easy. Forty years of brainwashing takes an awful long time to undo. It’s only been a year and half for me, so, I have a long ways to go.

      I appreciated your Tennessee comment, it actually made me chuckle. We’re near the Mississippi River, as you can see by my profile pic. It’s a difficult place to live. My husband was trying to coach me in how to make friends here a couple of nights ago. I have a traditional family and we live in suburbia, but we don’t act or talk like any of the locals. We don’t discuss our atheism much because our neighbors would hate us even more than what they do now. Oh well, still beats living in oppressive religion any day!

        Heh, I am over here by the Tn. river. I don’t get along with many of the locals either. They are too damned RWCRFM (Right Wing Conservative Republican Fundamentalist Morons) to suit me. They all hate Obama and love dogs/guns/and trucks. Most of em could not form a meaningful conclusion on any matter, unless it was something they heard and parrot from Fox News. This place is a shithole for the open minded, but it is beautiful country.

        It always pleases me to see someone that was able to crawl out from under the oppressive regime that is religion. Again, congrats it is quite nice to be free of the chains and shackles of religion. I was never deeply entrenched myself, but I had a few brushes with it, I have to admit I tried, just could not get it to take. But I never felt so free as the day I said, thats it, this just doesn’t feel right and never went back. Still it took a while to get from there to where I am today, it sounds like you could flip a light switch and be done with it, but it is, or was for me a long process of evaluation and thought to become a full blown atheist. I tried on agnosticism for a while, but it never seemed a good fit, more of a copout really. Anyway, I think most of us here at WP have had religion of some sort at some point, and while all of the stories differ in the details, we wound up here 🙂 So, nice to meet ya neighbor.

      Many times the media pisses me off. They appear to be sleeping in the same bed with the clowns who each day make our lives living hell. Then there are times when they actually do what they are supposed to do and my ire against the government goes up. I am waiting to find that one government operative high up that deserves some respect!

    I don’t know what to think of the media these days. You get so many viewpoints from so many angles, it hard to figure who is playing who. One thing I do know is there is some new terminology out there now, I just saw a bumper sticker the other day that read “I don’t trust the liberal media” I thought to myself, so…you only believe what Fox News tells you? It appears that people are divided with the media according to what they want to hear. I know I said on a post of my own recently, I just want the facts please, I don’t want to hear someone else’s views on the news. Just shoot me the facts, I am capable of forming my own views. I am afraid that there isn’t much getting around the fact that all of the news media is flavored in one direction or the other, probably following some prearranged political outlook that is designed to attract more viewers. It really isn’t about the news anymore.

      Members of the political class here are some of the bigger shareholders in the news outlets so most times we are fed crap. The FM stations that pretend to have some autonomy broadcast a lot of crap too. Most times I don’t know whether to care about the news or to remain apathetic.
