|Foreign Affairs / Re: Reasons Why Obama Is By Far The Worst President by anonymous6(f): 1:18am On Sep 17|
Yup people forgot Bush started the mess and expected Obama to be Santa Claus or a magician and make a big mess just disappear. Well Senator McCain when running against Obama back in 2008 wanted to extend the war the bush created and had issues with north Korea and Iran and mentioned that having war with them is a possibility during his campaings then.
I agree we don't know the future but economist have said around bush's time that the glory days of Bill Clintons time will never come back, the economy will get better for America they said depending on what path America takes but not back to the times of the 90's. Worldwide economies have changed since then.
When it comes to the CIA, don't care to defend them but they just seem like a secret society with a agenda

ChiefJusticeFuk: 1. Did not fix the U.S. economy
The worst president? If Obama is the worst where do you put former President Nixon and former President Bush, who were the worst as far as I am concerned. No sorry I don't agree Obama is the worst or in the worst list in the first place
1 & 2 he fixed the US economy the best way he can after 8 Years of president who started the Iraq and Afghanistan war in the first place. which lead to the economy spiraling out of control. If he didn't become president and Senator McCain became President, we would have been seeing the economy keep sliding with another three wars in Iran, North Korea and Russia.
3. if Obama wasn't president it still would have been there with another president
If you are complain about the economy you need to include Former President Bush. The glory days of America's economy in the 90's when Clinton was president is gone and will never will come back.
4. Premature withdrawal, he said way back that he was withdrawing troops July 2014 and he has said many times he was ending the war before the end of his presidency.
5. 6. 7. 9. ? put down that Heineken, Guinness, and whiskey cause it has reached overload with you
10. the cold war has been ongoing since the 70's and will never end as long as Russia and America are around. Put down the drugs

|Foreign Affairs / U.S. Air Marshal Boarded Flight To U.S. After Syringe Attack In Nigerian Airport by anonymous6(f): 1:40pm On Sep 10|
An on-duty U.S. air marshal was attacked with a syringe in Nigeria’s main airport Sunday, but FBI officials said the syringe didn’t appear to include deadly pathogens such as the Ebola virus, the Associated Press reported.
The marshal boarded a United flight after the attack in Lagos, landing in Houston and then went to the hospital, the AP reported. A law enforcement official told CNN that the marshal “felt fine” during the 12-hour flight.
The FBI said in a statement that “out of an abundance of caution” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted an on-site screening of the marshal when he landed Monday morning. “The victim did not exhibit any signs of illness during the flight and was transported to a hospital upon landing for further testing,” the statement read. “None of the testing conducted has indicated a danger to other passengers.”
It’s still unclear what was in the syringe, though. CDC’s initial testing was negative for deadly infectious agents, including “any bad stuff” such as Ebola, FBI spokesman Christos Sinos told AP.
The World Health Organization announced Tuesday that West Africa has more than 4,000 confirmed, probable and suspected cases of Ebola. The virus is mostly concentrated in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, with just 21 of those cases in Nigeria. But officials in Nigeria are cautious about the epidemic within their borders; this week, the country’s health ministry announced 477 people in the oil city of Port Harcourt are under surveillance for Ebola.
|Health / Re: US Urges Nigeria To Help Liberia, Others Tackle Ebola. by anonymous6(f): 2:33am On Sep 07|
well like I said Nigeria has proved themselves to be the leaders in handling this Ebola outbreak, no argument there
I've said it from the beginning Nigeria should help, how they help is entirely up to the Nigerian government
|Health / Re: US Urges Nigeria To Help Liberia, Others Tackle Ebola. by anonymous6(f): 2:03am On Sep 07|
South Africa and Kenya for example are top economies like Nigeria in Africa and their health care system when it comes to responding to diseases like Ebola would most likely be the same as Nigeria regardless if they didn't experience it, However it doesn't hurt if you have the experience first hand to combat it and so I give Nigeria a A+ for how they have handled it for a african country and see no issue in how America acknowledged Nigeria, they deserve it(especially since as you said Nigeria is sub-standard to USA). However Like I said before I think Nigeria should help, not against it.
Ebola is now a worldwide issue and requires all to help
|Health / Re: US Urges Nigeria To Help Liberia, Others Tackle Ebola. by anonymous6(f): 1:05am On Sep 07|
Me as a educated woman already knows that America acknowledge Nigeria cause of how the Nigerian government handled the ebola outbreak(which was mentioned in the article) but being educated is irrelevant cause there are some educated people posting on this thread and they are not seeing it as you. That's why I said it is tough cause there is not a consensus amongst all Nigerian(including the educated) on the next step on this issue regardless of how the US feels about Nigeria, cause some posters feel Nigeria shouldn't be the only ones bearing the responsibility alone hence why I brought up other African countries.
well if you were educated you would have realized that
|Health / Re: US Urges Nigeria To Help Liberia, Others Tackle Ebola. by anonymous6(f): 6:48pm On Sep 06|
Tough one here, I think if the US is asking Nigeria to help they should ask that from South Africa, Kenya, Ghana and etc as well to help to However I feel Nigeria should help in some sort of way so No sawyer situation repeats itself in Nigeria but Some Nigerians are bitter about Liberians now so I don't know.
|Foreign Affairs / Re: Why Is Obama Soft On The ISIS? by anonymous6(f): 3:03pm On Sep 06|
QAPHAYNE: The US is clearly soft on ISIS. Obama only reluctantly
lol Obama is not being soft he is being cautious by not dragging America in every war and etc that goes on especially in the third world. People need to remember after the Iraq and afghanistan war that was created by Bush and slowly being shut down by Obama, many Americans don't care for any war, regardless of their feelings. President Obama is doing what is within his means to appease the American citizens and help(air strikes) innocent Iraqi's from being slaughtered by animals like ISIS.
At the sametime I feel The American government pick and choses at times based on their interest, what battles they join and ones they don't; Darfur and Rwandan civil war is a very good example where America could careless but joined The vietnam war and it messed up President Lyndon Johnson then(70's) or when America went into Somalia(watch the movie: BLACK HAWK DOWN) and left in not in a good note in the early to mid 90's, I still remeber how Americans were complaining then.
President Obama must be taking in all the options and asking other european leaders to get involved, Like the UK, France, Germany, and even Russia(but I doubt they will after the Ukraine fiasco that is currently on-going and a mess, especially after the malaysian air craft that was shot down).
President Obama is doing what he can do in the present time, People need to know also some Americans even disagreed with Obama doing anything which included airstrikes or putting attention on the Ukraine or Gaza fiasco, they wanted thim to concentrate on more domestic issues.
People will always complain about Obama, especially the time he became president when the American economy was a mess and he had to quench two countries(Iraq and Afghanistan) from disaster. When President Obama got elected and he kept to the promise that he will end the Iraq war before his presidency and Americans were happy about this and I feel him sending ground troops will break that promise he made to American people. Air strikes are the best way where he slow doen the crazy ISIS but not start a breeding ground for another war in a country where he said he will end this past summer.

|Foreign Affairs / Russian Millionaire Throws Paper Planes Made Of Money Into Crowd by anonymous6(f): 11:48am On Sep 05|
Twenty-seven-year-old Russian millionaire Pavel Durov has earned himself plenty of new critics today after it was reported the mogul threw "paper planes" made of money from the windows of his St. Petersburg office into a growing crowd of pedestrians below.
Durov is the CEO of Vkontakte, or "In Contact," Russia's most popular social networking site and considered that country's equivalent to Facebook.
RT.com reports that a growing crowd amassed to collect the 5,000-ruble notes, which are worth about $160 each. However, while Durov reportedly appeared amused by the crowd, he stopped throwing the cash planes from his office window after some spectators appeared to turn violent.
According to RT, Durov took to his Twitter account, writing, "We had to stop soon, though, as people turned into animals."
Still, Durov apparently neglected to take personal responsibility for the response and even promised that "definitely, more such actions are to follow."
At the end of the day, Durov, who is worth an estimated $260 million, apparently tossed down only about $2,000 in cash to the crowd.
This isn't the first unusual public stunt by Durov. He recently published a political manifesto that included his ideas on how to improve Russia's economy. According to Business Insider, two of those ideas include abolishing Russia's national currency and allowing foreign interests to purchase state land.

|Foreign Affairs / Andrew Madoff Son Of Bernard Madoff Dies Of Cancer In NYC by anonymous6(f): 6:00pm On Sep 03|
NEW YORK (AP) — Andrew Madoff, Bernard Madoff's last surviving son, died of cancer on Wednesday, his lawyer said.
Andrew Madoff and his brother, Mark, both worked on a trading desk at Bernie Madoff's firm, a side of the business that wasn't directly involved in their father's $65 billion Ponzi scheme.
Bernard Madoff was arrested in December 2008. Almost exactly two years later, Mark Madoff hanged himself by a dog leash on a metal ceiling beam in his Manhattan loft apartment, as his 2-year-old son slept in another room.
"One way to think of this is the scandal and everything that happened killed my brother very quickly," Andrew Madoff told People magazine last year. "And it's killing me slowly."
Andrew Madoff, 48, died at a New York City hospital from mantle cell lymphoma, his attorney Martin Flumenbaum said Wednesday.
He was first diagnosed with the rare form of cancer in 2003 but went into remission. He blamed the relapse on the stress of living with his father's scam. The disease returned in October 2012, and he told People magazine that he felt "blindsided."
Andrew Madoff had served as the chairman of the Lymphoma Research Foundation's board of directors until his father's scheme was revealed.
Funeral arrangements will be private.

|Culture / Re: Who Really Is ODUDUWA? by anonymous6(f): 4:39pm On Sep 03|
Oduduwa, Olofin Adimula, and First Suzerain of the Yoruba, was the Oba of Ile-Ife. His name, phonetically written by Yoruba language-speakers as Odùduwà and sometimes contracted as Odudua or Oòdua, is generally ascribed to the ancestral dynasty of Yorubaland due to the fact that he is held by the Yoruba to have been the ancestor of their numerous crowned kings. Following his post-humous deification, he was admitted to the Yoruba pantheon as an aspect of a primordial divinity of the same name.
Oral history of the Oyo-Yoruba recounts the coming of the Oba Oduduwa from the east, sometimes understood by some sources as the "vicinity" of Mecca, but more likely signifying the region of Ekiti and Okun sub-communities in northeastern Yorubaland/central Nigeria. Ekiti is near the confluence of the Niger and Benue rivers, and is where the Yoruba language is presumed to have separated from related ethno-linguistic groupings like Igala, Igbo, and Edo.
When Oduduwa arrived ancient Ife, he and his group are believed to have conquered the component communities and to have evolved the palace structure with its effective centralized power and dynasty. Going by the tribal records, he is commonly referred to as the first Ooni of Ife and progenitor of the Yoruba people.
