A thread for the "#software is not political" crowd. Whether you like it or not, all software is political because technology AFFECTS PEOPLE. If you came to #tech thinking you'd escape having to think about people, #politics, and society - you were mistaken. I'll show you why...
Before we start, remember this as you read. Just because YOU think the answer to any of these issues is clear-cut, it doesn't mean that issue is not political.
There are people who take the OPPOSITE position with just as much conviction, and they think it's clear-cut too.
Also - as an engineer, a developer or designer - if you choose to ignore the political and societal implications of your #technology, YOU HAVE MADE A POLITICAL CHOICE.
Increasing minimum wage results in low-skilled young workers either being laid off or not getting hired, and Rent Relief results in rents getting raised because landlords know about it too. Democrats always find ways to exacerbate problems while pretending to solve them.
Can the Senate President be removed IF the entire 109 Senators are not complete? #MyView
Saraki is GONE if and when @OfficialAPCNg is ready. It will only take 30 minutes without any drama. So don't think removing Saraki will be that dramatic guys.. #RemovingSaraki
Don't argue too much on this.
Nigeria had 109 Senators as at the time Saraki was "elected" as Senate President by just 57 Senators. If that was constitutional & seen to have formed a "quorum"
then removing Saraki by 2/3 of the same "quorum" is constitutional... #RemovingSaraki
The other perspective is this:
Does the constitution say that the Senate President MUST come from the Majority party/ruling party?
Can a Senator from the MINORITY be the Majority leader of the house?
Can a Senator from the Majority party be the Minority leader? 🤔🤔
I will do a thread later on all these deflection of lepers & #TheGame that will tame Saraki in 2019..
Let me give you a hint ahead of this thread:
Expect a very influential Senator from the South East like Akpabio to deflect to @OfficialAPCNg b4 #NigeriaDecides2019 #MyView 😂🤣
Let me go further to tell you #MyView that led to this:
In 2015, #TheGame was for Ngige from the South East to win election, & being part of the new ruling party (majority), he was supposed to become the #SenatePresident(from South Eats), PMB(North), PYO(South West)...#Politics
But since the South East folks in their politics of hatered towards Buhari thought voting for Ngige would mean they supported APC/PMB, the person that won couldn't have been the Senate President because she was not from the ruling party...As such, the seat was open to all...🤣😂
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.
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
