Surprising modern and upscale isn’t it… so how do you like the real Africa now? And……why aren’t their rich helping their poor, instead of us !

U.S. tax dollars are building the countries in Africa.

Consistent unflattering media portrayals would have you to believe something entirely different… e.g. Africa is still some kind of wild, savage and untamed jungle. You ever wonder why that is? Because the media is biased and to tell the truth does not fit into their purview. To do so would’nt “sell.”

Ghana is a constitutional democracy but was once a military junta that had their ethnic cleansing and mass graves before 2004. The new government is considered “conservative” by any definition especially for Africa .

Why should we be sending our tax dollars to these countries to refurbish their religious buildings, Mosques, to the tune of $777 billion?

Hillary Clinton the secretary of state, is responsible for this money being disbursed to these countries….no wonder why our government is broke!!

Nancy & Harry

Posted: October 4, 2011 by thesundowner in Uncategorized

Nancy Pelosi called Harry Reid into her office one day and said, “Harry, I have a plan to win back Middle America in 2012!”

“Great, Nancy, but how?” asked Harry.

“We’ll get some cheesy clothes and shoes, like most middle Americans wear, then stop at the pound and pick up a Labrador Retriever. Then, we’ll go to a nice old country bar in Montana and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there.”

So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Bozeman, Montana.

With the dog in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the bar. The Bartender took a step back and said, “Hey! Aren’t you Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi?” “Yes we are!” said Nancy, “And what a lovely town you have here. We were passing through and Harry suggested we stop and take in some local color.”

They ordered a round of bourbon for the whole bar, and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen.

A few minutes later, a grizzled old farmer came in, walked up to the Labrador, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked out. A few moments later, in came another old farmer. He walked up to the dog, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the bar. For the next hour, another dozen farmers came in, lifted the dog’s tail, and left shaking their heads.

Finally, Nancy asked, “Why did all those old farmers come in and look under the dog’s tail? Is it some sort of quaint Montana custom?”

“Lord no,” said the bartender. ” Someone’s running around town claiming there’s a Labrador Retriever here in my bar with two assholes !”
