You people need to stop getting all twisted over this article.
If you know anything about the writer of this article - Ann Coulter - you would not even bother.
She is a true-and-true crazy human being who would say anything just to make a few dollars.
She has no other skills than to be the extreme-extreme spokesperson of the Republican Party.
You have been warned - he who argues with a MADMAN will soon be called one.
Ann Coulter, and her Adam's Apple bigger than Arnold Schwazeneger's, would be a perfect fit in the deepest part of Aro.

|Travel / Re: My Experience In Port-harcourt Airspace & Airport Today by koruji(m): 3:16am On Nov 02, 2013|
Yeah, it is the president we are talking about...the president who is president only when we are talking about the spoils of office. At all other times he is the "excuse-giver-in-chief". Did you even read about the 8-year road construction that happened to be completed just in time for the funeral? This is the same thing he did when he was going to collect blessings at RCCG along Lagos-Ibadan road. Good thing Jerusalem was not in Nigeria, he would have fixed the road to that place too for his pilgrimage !!!
Goddex: What do you mean sef? The President should have boarded Arik or Chanchangi to Port Harcourt or what? Or other sympathisers who could afford private jets should not have used them? The scenario you described here is not new for those of us that worked in airports. It's the President you are talking about. Bear it, afterall, it's once in a long while.
|Politics / Re: Bizzare: Aregbesola Introduces Ifa As A Subject In Osun State Schools by koruji(m): 5:06am On Oct 07, 2013|
Obviously, you have little knowledge of that which you speak of.
Ifa corpus is the codification of ancient Yoruba sacred knowledge and practices.
I happen to have a text of the Ifa corpus collected by a European who travelled all over Yoruba land and translated it into English.
What strikes me in reading part of this book is the close similarity between specifications of animal sacrifices to tackle adverse human conditions and those in the Bible book of Leviticus (boring to read in both cases I must tell you).
The fact is that all the religions of the world have a common origin - they are all different stories that have changed with time and distance from their initial source of origin in the "land of the gods" in middle north-east Africa.
What we call religion today was actually human's first rudimentary attempt at science - an attempt to study and provide explanations for the mysterious. In those days what you call Ifa worshipers or devotees today would be the ancient professors of that science i.e. Ifa in the Yoruba sphere of influence.
I would not object to introducing this as a subject in schools - so long as it is voluntary.
We already have our schools teaching Bible and Quaran knowledge - and I hope these are voluntary as well.
In addition, Ifa is common to all those gods you mentioned - as it codifies all sacred knowledge.
....hehehe I am probably wasting my time here, as your post (quoting as it is from another forum post with no link to any other public source) probably has a more sinister motive as usual.
Sincere 9gerian: Osun State governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, said last week that his administration plans to introduce the study of Ifa as one of the subjects in the states secondary school. The schools computer tablet already have application for Ifa studies.

Please tell us how many committees GEJ has set up on serious Nigerian issues.
After you have performed that "onerous" job then come back and tell us what he has done with the outcome of any of them.
The simply moves for selfish purposes, and his bootlickers are not helping matters.
I am sorry for those joining his kangaroo committee because they are putting their reputation on the line to serve selfish interests.

|Car Talk / Re: My Road Trip From Lagos To Ibadan. Pictures! by koruji(m): 3:23am On Sep 24, 2013|
@OP Great pictures. Wished I took pictures like these about three weeks ago when I passed through that terrible road.
Your pictures provide good pictorial evidence of my point in another thread, where GEJ's people were reconstructing the Lagos-Ibadan road online by subterfuge. What I saw on that road were about 10-15 RCC workers shuffling feet on less than 1 km of their section of the road - no real work was going on, they were moving around like they really were there to show up.
That "GEJ bootlicker" said I was praying for the road not to be finished - when asked them to to wait for it to be finished before showing us pictures of less than a kilometer of some movement on the existing road, instead of mixing RCC signs with JB trucks. That is not how you construct a 5-lane each way road. The fact is there is nothing to write home about being done on that road, as far as construction or even rehabilitation is concerned. That is the unmitigated truth!!!
|Politics / Re: Lagos-ibadan Expressway: President Jonathan Lies Again by koruji(m): 4:50am On Sep 17, 2013|
When I passed through that terrible road about two weeks ago there were about 5-10 RCC workers - shuffling around. It occurred to me that GEJ was getting ready for another campaign of subterfuge. This was the same man that had Julius Berger come shuffle feet on that road almost a year ago - but proclaimed it like a reconstruction contract.
Well, to all the GEJ praise-singers, those pictures are worth exactly nothing. The project is supposed to be 5-lanes on each side. There is nothing in the pictures that show anything close, and the total length of the section where they are "shuffling feet" is no more than 1/2 a kilometer. There is nothing to indicate the kind of monumental work implied by the proclaimed re-design of this road is about to take place.
Incidentally, on that very day I had just passed through the ongoing work on Aregbesola's LOOP between Osogbo and the Ibadan-Ife road, and you are left in no doubt about the plan and the ongoing work. Compared to the proclaimed redesign of the Lagos-Ibadan road this loop is a much smaller project, yet the amount of equipment and men all along that road was impressive.
It seems RCC is there, for some reason, to provide a photo-op for exactly this type of NL post. Or may be Mr. GEJ is on his way back to the Lagos-Ibadan road praying ground!!! JB probably refused to do the dirty work for them this time, so it is RCC's turn to play along!!!
Whichever is the case, this post is a waste of time. It needs to wait until the road is about to be commissioned.

|Politics / Re: Lets Just Admit The Truth About Wole Soyinka by koruji(m): 5:15am On Aug 01, 2013|
Stop talking with your mouth so full of GEJ's breastmilk.
Even if Kogi is of "average intelligence" - that would still be a thousand times greater than your parent's, and infinitely greater than the near zero intelligence that calls your upstairs home.
Ikengawo: Wole Soyinka is not an intellectual for one. Someone needs to just admit this and move on. He doesn't show the traits of someone with an above average intelligence. He's just against any and everything moving and like a person of average intelligence will delve into petty insult matches. He has no ideas, no solutions, and no vision like people of high intelligence, he just attacks without resolve. In a functioning country such a person would be the 'average' citizen, but in a land where the low IQ is the loudest, Soyinka is seen as some type of intellectual or sage. People that are ready to say he's an intellectual sage can not name any of his works, have seldom read any of them, and when you have, as I have, you have a difficult time admitting that it was average par work because you're made to believe this guy is a 'brain' in the nation.

|Politics / Re: Al-mustapha For President In 2015 Rally In Kaduna by koruji(m): 6:26pm On Jul 24, 2013|
He may not be an ex-convict but by hus own adnission he was involved in the death of others. By your twistes logic Abacha was not a killer too. Fine military officer? Are you drunk? If you take orders to commit a crime you are a CRIMINAL!!!
seighapaul: why are Nigerians so biased when it comes to things like this. Almost all the comments here are obviously borne out of sentiments. Most people have said all sorts of nonsense against the judiciary since Al-Mustapha's release because they are opposed to the court's verdict to release him. I'm not surprised. Meanwhile they have applauded the same judiciary moments ago because of appeal courts verdict on Rev. King. When will you guys learn to look at the facts and not your feelings.
|Politics / Re: Al-mustapha For President In 2015 Rally In Kaduna by koruji(m): 6:22pm On Jul 24, 2013|
Go sitdown with your nonsensical rabble. Perhaps he wasn't involved in this specific case but he is a KILLER nevertheless...because HE HIMSELF has admitted being involved in many others.
kinguwem: The use of the word 'killer' for a man who has been acquitted & discharged by a court is character assasination.

|Politics / Re: Marriageable Age Of Places Around The World by koruji(m): 4:09am On Jul 21, 2013|
I hope you were conscious when you wrote the below? Are you suggesting that allowing people "freedom to their way-of-life" include allowing them to deny a young kind her own god-given freedom to live free and make their own decisions in life? Are you in the fullness of your mind considering a girl of 6, 9 or 13 forced (forced because she is incapable of consenting) as being allowed her "freedom to her own way of life"?
Most of the evils that have been perpetrated on planet earth were actually the way of life of some people - that did not make them permissible or something that should be practiced in the 21st century.
No God, no matter what his name, made your third-leg the authority over another's life - it is as simple as that.
|Politics / Re: Marriageable Age Of Places Around The World by koruji(m): 4:01am On Jul 21, 2013|
The nose is actually quite a bit off from the eyes, my friend.
There is a reason why teenhood is a marking point in the development of the human person.
Anything below 13 is cradle-robbing, anything between 13 and 18 is unconscionable.
Besides, laws are a form of minima requirements - we still need to apply our common sense and humanity.
Anybody in this age that consigns the future of a youth to the serfdom of a husband at a young age is a criminal.
It is indeed sad that you fail to see the connection between this kind of stupidity and our national problems, and therefore see them as separate. Babies are consigned to producing new babies in an unending cycle. Boys are thrown into the streets to beg and join up with gangs of religious fundamentalists - 10 to 20 years later they come back with revenge when the illusion of their situation hits them - and then you have Boko Haram and its predecessors (Maitasine, et al.). Those privileged among them come back from their religious indoctrination to assume the position of "senator" of the republic aka Yerima.
Unjust and selfish application of religion is the real problem we need to solve in Nigeria.
|Politics / Re: ‘i Can Give My Own Daughter Out At Age 9′ - Senator Ahmed Sani Yerima Bakura by koruji(m): 9:11pm On Jul 20, 2013|
Mr. Yerima, stop dragging the name of your prophet in the mud - he took those actions according to the norms of the age (7th century) in which he lived. The practice of assigning young girls to boys from very young has nothing to do with God - this was practiced long ago by all cultures, including the Arabs.
People of today may consider your prophet a craddle-robber, but the majority of men of his era - muslim or not - would also be craddle-robbers in that sense. If he lived today do you think Mohammed would have married a 9 year old? The big answer is NO WAY!!! What followers of religion fail to realize is that the figures they revere were revolutionaries of their own age. They changed the laws and the times, but were by no means completely immune from the shortcomings of those ages. Mohammed would have done away with this law promptly, were he alive today.
On the other hand, you, Yerima, by continuing such a practice in the 21st century are a true craddle-robber - you need to slap the Jinn out of your own head because it is making you crazy.
Use your common sense for once Yerima. If you say it is not about sex, then why are you consigning a 9 year old to be your slave before she could make that decision. Yerima thinks he is talking sense in suggesting that the girl will be allowed to: 1) mature; 2) give her consent.
This is simply the talk of a confused man because:
1) who determines where and when the girl is "mature" but the one that "purchased" her from the cradle;
2) what kind of freedom does the girl have to give consent when she is already your slave?
The real question Mr. Yerima needs to answer is what will happen if the girl - Yerima forbid - actually refuses to give consent. Is she free to leave then? If not, and she refuses to give consent until age 40, what will Yerima do? molest her - under another justification? What age does Yerima understand to be mature?
Why is an almost 60 year old man interested in taking care of the 9 year old girl of another as "wife"?
Why don't you just set up an education foundation for boys and girls alike, instead of attempting to disguise pedophilia?
I did not realize that this man is still in the senate until now.
Nobody has any balls in Nigeria anymore. I am thoroughly ashamed at David Mark for allowing such nonsense.
Nigeria is in the gutters.
