|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Accused Of ‘plagiarising’ Obama’s Inauguration Cake (photos) by abbey621(m): 4:54pm On Jan 21|
Everybody tries to take a dig at Trump, yet he gives no bleeps! Trump is more gangsta than Obama will ever be and he does not apologize for being honest. I have a feeling a lot of people are going to drink rat poison before 4 years is over
|Religion / Re: Any Fulani Herdsman You See , Kill Him, Cut His Head - Apostle Suleiman by abbey621(m): 4:05pm On Jan 21|
An eye for an eye till everybody goes blind! Now some of these church people would panic and kill any Hausa man or woman that comes near them, this is what happens when we don't have sensible leaders(Governmental or Religious)!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Anti-trump Protesters Vandalise Cars And Banks by abbey621(m): 12:34am On Jan 21|
Most of those who vandalized are now chilling in police custody and seeing that today is Friday they won't get bail till Monday. Those who e no go better for, e no go better for but America shall be great again!

We are saying the same thing, God is mysterious, hence the so many ways of worshiping him. Whether you are christian, Muslim or Jew, what matters is the goodness of your heart. We shall all be judged according to our deeds!
|Investment / Re: MMM Participants Lose Patience, Attack Each Other, Guiders by abbey621(m): 7:59pm On Jan 19|
MMM is a nice and brilliant idea. Crowd sourcing/funding exists all over the world but they exists within the confines of the law! They operate with solid structures and realistic plans. They are registered with government so that when anything bad happens we would know who to hold accountable. Nigerians we too like wuru wuru, mago mago otherwise every right thinking person would ask the simple question, how does the founders of MMM make money? Abi na church business? Even churches make profits!
|Religion / Re: Christian Nigerian Lady Visits Mosque In Abu Dhabi (Photos) by abbey621(m): 7:53pm On Jan 19|
There is a quote I like to refer everyone to when believing that one religion is greater than the other but before I do that, we all agree on two things:
1. God is powerful and omnipotent
2. There is only one True God
If the above sentences are true then let's deeply think about the quote:
"If God wanted us all to worship him the same way, wouldn't it have been easy for him to make it so?"
God is mysterious, truly indeed!
|Politics / Re: There Was Nothing Accidental About Borno IDP Settlement Bombing – Survivor by abbey621(m): 3:37pm On Jan 19|
Ok let's play along and say it was accidental. Who ordered the strike? Who were the officers involved? All of them should have been giving a mandatory resignation or retirement. I see no form of corrective actions just plain politics, life lost and all we hear is sorry?
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 2:38pm On Jan 19|
What you want is different from what the country needs according to Trump. Yea in a perfect world, your ideas would be ideal but we live in a real world with real problems. Trump was elected to bring back jobs, improve the economy and do away with the weak image the USA is now associated with. As the president elect, he is entitled to pick anyone that shares his vision, all we ask for is performance! Why don't you allow them to work and then judge later? All these bickering won't accomplish anything!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 1:45pm On Jan 19|
I'm sorry a realist shouldn't think like that, you should always compare and contrast. Ask yourself,can a scientist be bias? Is it possible that climate change consequences have been exaggerated just a tad bit? Everybody knows it's good to protect the environment but in a country with 20 Trillion dollars worth of debt and so many job killing regulations, the EPA is one of the agencies that have lost its ways. Challenging every right from property right to State's rights. If Trump is ever to deliver on his promises,the economy must be unleashed, I'm sorry he's going to have to piss off a lot of environmentalist, human rights advocates and so on, no more apologists like Obama, it's time for real and effective policies bringing America back to the days when ordinary citizens can afford to work 2 to 3 jobs and amassing wealth!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 1:29pm On Jan 19|
This is a good start, now take each article and research the authors, separate the bias ones from the neutrals. For example, a scientist and an environmentalist would definitely be bias towards Pruitt. Now look at the links below and do the same, then you can form your stance. This is investigative journalism 101...thank me later!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 11:39pm On Jan 18|
One excellent method I use is gather 5 sources with contrasting beliefs. E.g Fox news,Al Jazeera, CNN, Altenet and Reuters. I then compare and analyze their reports, if it matches up I form my stance, if not I categorize the news as bias and wait till there are either more damning evidence or the story is refuted. This is just one of the methods I use, everyone is different but what separates a realist from others is the ability to decipher facts from noise
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 9:43pm On Jan 18|
No they are all sh*t, stop depending on media and do your own investigative research
|Investment / Re: MMM Sets N31.735 Maximum Withdrawal Limit by abbey621(m): 2:06pm On Jan 18|
I can't really blame those who participated out of ignorance/frustration before the numerous warnings came out. However, I emphatically blame those who failed to heed the warnings and kept pumping money into this useless SCAM since October 2016. For those people, you will see paper and call it money by the time poverty is done with you!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 1:58pm On Jan 18|
You keep making my point for me without even knowing it! Look at your freakin sources, NY Times? Huffington Post? Dude are you kidding me? The same liberal media that kept saying there's no path for Trump to get to 270 electoral votes? Come on man, you got to do better than that, at least try to balance your sources and make it more credible, SHAME!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 4:17am On Jan 18|
I'm glad you brought out the definition and I love your example. As you can see in the example the telecom industry was not removed or abandoned rather restrictions were removed. True purpose of deregulation is to make the country more business friendly! I'm glad I was able to educate you
|Crime / Re: Female Undergraduate Runs Mad After Being Beaten By Lover by abbey621(m): 6:55pm On Jan 17|
Fathers raise your daughter right, make her strong so she would never depend on any man. Make her confident so she can be an asset not a liability. Mothers raise your daughter right, teach her not to sell her body for cheap things, build her independence but also teach her how to be submissive but empowering.
|Religion / Re: CAN Replies Council Of Imams And Ulamah Of Kaduna State by abbey621(m): 6:17pm On Jan 17|
This is the problem I have with your kind, failure to keep an open mind. The attack should be condemned by all well meaning Nigerians, it has nothing to do with your religion. The failure to condemn these attacks by the North shows that they are hell bent on wiping out the minority. When you now add the silence and cowardice of the government to the mix, things become very CLEAR! Tis is why I blamed the Northern majority and CAN for not helping the situation. If we are to fight violence with violence, the majority would win; rather CAN must use it's influence to engage the government and the Northern elites! Without intervention from the government the minority would ALL DIE! I hope you get my point, I'm all fr the defending themselves but this is an herculean task and the CASUALTIES would be too much.
|Religion / Re: CAN Replies Council Of Imams And Ulamah Of Kaduna State by abbey621(m): 11:53pm On Jan 16|
There's no need for the long epistle,you obviously live in a world of theories while reality has evaded you! Three fallacies in your write up:
1: Kaduna has the same number of Christians to Muslims(You obviously don't know what you are talking about, can you show me the research which backs your ridiculous assumption?) I not only have friends and family in Kaduna but I served there also so where did you get your information from?
2. Who told you the government is sponsoring these uprisings? Once again another emotional reaction with no facts whatsoever! Perhaps you meant religious leaders?
3. Finally, If you call Prophet Muhammad(S.A.W) a warlord then the same title befits Moses and Joshua. You might want to dispute it but even the smartest historians would tell you more people died on the orders of Joshua than any other prophet so your outrageous analysis of the prophet was not only mischief-like but comical!
It might interest you to know that the very first holy crusade was created by the church as a military campaign aimed at reclaiming what is known today as the Middle East. The death toll is over 700,000, you might want to think about this before thinking one religion is more violent than the other
|Investment / Re: Reasons Why I Stand Against MMM by abbey621(m): 10:19pm On Jan 16|
People bashing the writer are sick in the head! When MMM finally crashes and people start committing suicides, shouldn't we feel guilty as a society that we didn't do all our best to warn against their risky behavior? Be your neighbor's keeper, SAVE A LIFE!!!
|Politics / Re: United Action For Democracy Protests Against Buhari's Government (Photos) by abbey621(m): 9:12pm On Jan 16|
Friend why don't you pick up an English translated version of the Quran and confirm for yourself, this would be much easier than taking the word of strangers on the internet. The problem with many terrorist is that they take words in the Bible and the Quran too literal. Just because somethings applies in the old days does not mean it is applicable now. As humans most of us have deviated from the true purpose of religion, it's just unfortunate that history has repeated itself, back in the 11th and 12th centuries it was interpretation of Christianity that was creating Chaos now it's Islam's turn.
To truly get rid of terrorism, we need to understand what is in both books and educate people properly on situational analysis, even pastors and imams(Ones that are still sensible) knows that God/Allah is capable of fighting for himself.
|Religion / Re: CAN Replies Council Of Imams And Ulamah Of Kaduna State by abbey621(m): 8:57pm On Jan 16|
You are still not getting it, perhaps you are deliberately ignoring reality? Religion has never been the problem rather the problem is pure greed and hatred with political influence. It's like an Igbo community choosing to protect themselves during the Biafran war while living in the Western region, ko le work! There is something called home advantage and majority usually overwhelms the minority. CAN can talk the talk but they can't walk the walk. Since the Muslim leaders in the North have chosen to turn a blind eye, what would it profit CAN to continue to anger the majority?
I just can't help but laugh, which communities are you talking about? The majority of Northerners see no problem with these killings, are you suggesting the minorities match them fire for fire? You do realize that for every Fulani that dies, they are willing to sacrifice 100 Christians? How then can such a battle be won? Without rescue from the government these people are doomed! This is my point and why I blame the North, CAN and the government for this tragedy!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 8:47pm On Jan 16|
Another fallacy! Deregulation doesn't mean getting rid of them, it means reducing their power so that businesses can run as free enterprises. Go back and read about Jimmy Carter and his policies and why he is considered one of the worst presidents in U.S history in terms of economic policies. I'm done with you!
|Religion / Re: CAN Replies Council Of Imams And Ulamah Of Kaduna State by abbey621(m): 6:50pm On Jan 16|
Before you call someone ignorant you might want to chill and understand what is called a premise, if you actually took time to read what I wrote before rambling you would realize that our points are very similar. All your points are easily rebutted using 3 questions/statements of my own:
1. What evidence do you have that Islam is more misinterpreted than Christianity? Perhaps you are not a student of history or maybe you are just a product of modernization but check your history books and see where all the savagery and violence began.
2. What is CAN's usefulness? When you tell your members to protect themselves at all cost even if it means to lynch suspected Fulani herdsmen, this will surely not end well for the minority. In a place where the majority rules and the government is not willing to protect the minorities what makes you think we won't have a genocide?
Finally, this is not a religious problem, it is purely political! Someone mentioned religious rights under the Nigerian Constitution earlier but failed to understand there is no enforcement. In a situation where a certain group dominates a particular section of the country and are hell bent on wiping out the lesser group due to the nonchalant attitude and wickedness of the government, anyone that believes CAN will protect these people are obviously delusional!
|Celebrities / Re: Lady Comments Frequently On Peter Okoye’s Photo, To Profess Her Love by abbey621(m): 5:02pm On Jan 16|
There's nothing special here, just another fan showing love. She said Psquare not Peter or Paul, get it?
|Religion / Re: CAN Replies Council Of Imams And Ulamah Of Kaduna State by abbey621(m): 2:29pm On Jan 16|
There's a difference between reality and wishful thinking. What you just wrote is wishful thinking. If you truly understood the dynamics of the North you would completely agree that there is just no way to defeat their ideology without the help of the government. In a country where justice jungle reigns, where the rich get away with stealing billions of Naira and the poor are jailed or lynched for stealing tomatoes; the reality is your Constitutional rights are only valuable on paper. This is the sad but bitter truth!

|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 7:40pm On Jan 15|
Such poor education! You might want to pick up Trump's book on the art of negotiation and realize why these picks are meant to champion deregulation, a concept many Americans especially business people like myself are so much in love with. Enough of that, now back to Trump. Where were you when Arnold became Governor or let's go backin history, have you ever heard of Nixon, Buchanan or Jackson? You've called him every name in the book and now he's Hitler, seems the liberal media are really good at educating you. Get that idea out of your head that America will never elect someone like Trump again, Americans are themost unpredictable set of people on the planet. Anyways, Trump is the president, he's going to be the president for the next 4years minimum so chill back and enjoy the ride
|Religion / Re: CAN Replies Council Of Imams And Ulamah Of Kaduna State by abbey621(m): 7:11pm On Jan 15|
Nigeria's problem are two folds:
1. Majority of Northerners and their sick ideology(Notice I didn't use the word 'Muslims' because religion has never been the problem but interpretation. These people refuse to value the life of their fellow human beings.
2. CAN and their incessant lack of respect for other religions. Basically you do not go into another man's backyard and start forming landlord. CAN is basically jeopardizing the lives of Christians in the North, if you eventually fight force with force in the long run the Christians would lose out against the more physical and violent opposition.
In the end, a country without a credible and effective government will expose it's citizens to quagmire like this!
|Religion / Re: "Super Rich Churches That Do Business Must Pay Tax" – Sheikh Abdur-Rahman Ahmad by abbey621(m): 3:08pm On Jan 15|
There is no business like church business, this is why on every street there is a church. I know a man who was selling bras, he came back from the village and all of a sudden started a church. Let's be honest, the church has lost its ways in Nigeria. I can understand not taxing the church if the schools built by these churches offered subsidized school fees, I could even understand if some certain overseers used the money they bought private jets with to create a free hospital or clinic but when the sweat and money of poor helpless citizens are collected as tithes or offerings and are then used to flaunt lavishly, they must STOP being treated like a non-profit organization and start paying taxes!

That is your opinion and you are entitled to it, my opinion is that he is not the first flawed president and he won't be the last! He is the president and there's nothing you can do about it, so you can continue with your message of doom or give the man a chance to govern. With all his fatal flaws he defeated seasoned political opponents, with all his fatal flaws he picked those with tremendous experience to make up his cabinet and finally with all his fatal flaws he is putting America first once again, like I said greatness does not mean perfection as even flawed presidents have done some of the greatest things in U.S history!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 2:15am On Jan 15|
I'm already getting tired of this! No one is comparing FDR's greatness to Trump, for goodness sake FDR is listed as one of the greatest. The debate is can a flawed president also be great? So far, you have not disproved my point that being flawed does not automatically make you a disastrous or unsuccessful president. So leave your definition to the side and argue based on facts! Election is over, Trump is the president, judge him after 4 years like every president!
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Donald Trump Blasts CNN Reporter On Live TV: "You Work For A Fake News Agency" by abbey621(m): 1:45am On Jan 15|
Was FDR a great president? Yes! Was FDR flawed? Yes! So what's your argument again?
