Welcome to #NATO 101. Lesson 1
"The mere lack of #military#power is, in itself, not enough to cause a nation to lose its position vis-à-vis other states. That only happens when the people lose their individual integrity and the country gradually loses its national #integrity...
#NATO 101, Lesson 2
"No-one wants to cooperate with a country that has lost its integrity. [Even when] other countries have dealt unreasonably... who would want to damage the amity extant between [us, just by] sticking up for a state that has no national #integrity to begin with?
I bought a bird feeder. I hung it
on my back porch and filled it
with seed. What a beauty of
a bird feeder it was, as I filled it
lovingly with seed.
Within a week we had hundreds of birds
taking advantage of the
continuous flow of free and
easily accessible food.
But then the birds started
building nests in the boards
of the patio, above the table,
and next to the barbecue.
Then came the crap. It was
everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table ...
Then some of the birds
turned mean. They would
dive bomb me and try to
peck me even though I had
fed them out of my own
And others birds were
boisterous and loud. They
sat on the feeder and
squawked and screamed at
all hours of the day and night
Sometimes when I'm very ill, I have terrible dystopian dreams. I visualize war and intense violence. I also have hallucinations. When I wake, I imagine I'm still in the world created by my dreams. #Nigeria#Politics#Governance
Now that the episodes have ocurred a few times, my rational mind recognises the world is not real. I know that once I go back to sleep and wake again, everything will be alright. #Nigeria is like my dreams. The only difference is things do not get better when I wake up.
When I was younger, during the harsh days of SAP & the uncertain days of military rule, I was shielded from the horrors because I had good parents. Parents create the world their children live in. However, now that I'm an adult, this Nigerian world I live in is all too real.
[...] "The watchman’s task has always been a thankless one.
"There are treacherous fifth column elements, who are really working for the #defeat of the #nation, at the hands of its enemies.
"These subversive elements readily gain and hold the #public’s ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.
In the last few years, queer theory and its implications for political action have been subjected to critiques from some gay sociologists who have not been prepared to abandon their materialist analyses for the delights of post-structuralism, as well as from lesbian feminists.
These critics have argued that queer theory is the child of a certain anti-liberation historical moment, and is therefore individualist and anti-materialist as well as sexist.
You won’t know that if you watch the #FakeNewsMedia, Drive-By Media and their continual harangue, which is as predictable as the sun coming up after each one of these horrific incidents.
How in the world can political differences be put aside when even the marchers and their agenda sound very similar to that of the Democrat Party, which is find a way to get rid of the guns and find a way to get rid of the NRA. #WakeUpAmerica
