I do not know if this is good news or bad news, but John Bolton has announced that he would not seek the Republican nomination for president in 2016. Now, you might ask, “who the hell is John Bolton?” He was the UN representative of the Bush administration. On the other hand, George Pataki has announced that he might seek the Republican nomination. Now, you might ask: “who the hell is George Pataki?” He did serve as governor of New York state. Stand by for the latest description of the greatest show in town– who is the Republican candidate for president in 2016?
1. Lindsay Graham, the US senator from the state of South Carolina has informed America: “Tomorrow morning(today) I will be giving an important update on my 2016 plans and I want to make sure you are able to hear it.” I have a funny feeling no one other than Lindsay will be paying any attention to his decision.
2. As of this date we have yet to hear from Donald Trump or Rick Perry or Sarah Palin as to their desires to run for president. Again, I do not know if this is good or bad news for the Republican party.
I wonder if it would be beneficial for potential candidates to present themselves to a play director and have that person decide as to who should be the lead in the play of 2016 titled: “Running for President.”
It will be a comedy in three acts: Act 1: Deciding to run. Act 2: Running in the Primary. Act 3: Running for President.
I can guarantee this will be one funny play.
P.S. George H.W. Bush only served on term as president, why shouldn’t he run for a second term?

There is one idea which is ignored by those commenting about the lack of democracy within Africa, and that is the possibility that Africans at this stage of historical development do not desire the ideas of democracy. Robert Mugabe has been head man of Zimbabwe since 1980 and he desires for one more term in order to bring prosperity to his nation. After all, how can anyone develop a vibrant democratic society in only 35 years? President Pierre Nujkvunzizi was overthrown in a coup in Burundi only to stage a coup against General Niyombare who overthrew him. There are times in African politics when the game of democracy is somewhat like a game of musical chairs. What is wrong with Africa?
1. The continent has failed to bring forth leaders such as Nelson Mandela.
2. The few democratic leaders who were able to gain power failed to mentor the next generation of leaders.
3. Corruption has become the norm, not the exception in virtually all African nations.
4. Perhaps, the basic issue is failure to create nations that bound people into one society.
It is also time to quit blaming ‘IMPERIALISM” for the failures of modern African societies.
Africa needs leaders who will end corruption and share the wealth with the masses of people.

Wee are now entering thirty years of Bush folks somewhere near or around the White House. So, to understand the Bush clan:
1. A Bush holding your hand means the other one might hold a knife.
2. Together the Bush dynasty has led to three wars for America.
3. I believe the behavior of the Bush clan is bush league.
4. When a Bush lights a fire it can become a firefight.
5. Few Bushes grow up to be giant trees in the forest.
6. Plant a bush on your lawn and it will transform into a fungus that devours your sons and daughters.
I believe it is time to replace our bushes with flowering plants of beauty.
