Sure, That'll Work

I was never sure that Nelson Mandela ever did these people a favor. Now I am sure of it.

First, South African men appear to think that having sex with a virgin will cure them of AIDS.

Now this:

South African men are 'raping women to cure them of being lesbians'

Lesbians living in South Africa are being raped by men who believe it will 'cure' them of their sexual orientation, a report has revealed.

Women are reporting a rising tide of brutal homophobic attacks and murders and the widespread use of 'corrective' rape as a form of punishment.

The report, commissioned by international NGO ActionAid, called for South Africa's criminal justice system to recognise the rapes as hate crimes as police are reportedly failing to take action over the spiralling violence.

I never knew rape came in prescription form. Does the local pharmacist participate? What about finding a parking space at a rape scene; is this deductible?

What a screwed up culture, what a messed up country. Ann Coulter almost had it right:"We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity." Just convert them. Let the converts do the heavy lifting after that.

I wish I had saved the url to a blog about life in Nigeria that I read lover a year ago. An American was taking a boat ride and commented to the local guide what had happened to all the abandoned towns and businesses on the river. The guide replied that since independence his country was rife with conflict and corruption that had killed the economy and reduced citizens to beggars. The guide then gave a curious observation, something on the order that if a European country wanted to colonize them again, he'd welcome it because ti would be a return to order and sanity.

Read this:

There are many unresolved problems in Nigeria, but the issue of the upsurge of corruption is troubling. And the damages it has done to the polity are astronomical. The menace of corruption leads to slow movement of files in offices, police extortion tollgates and slow traffics on the highways, port congestion, queues at passport offices and gas stations, ghost workers syndrome, election irregularities, among others. Even the mad people on the street recognize the havoc caused by corruption - the funds allocated for their welfare disappear into the thin air. Thus, it is believed by many in the society that corruption is the bane of Nigeria. Consequently, the issue keeps reoccurring in every academic and informal discussion in Nigeria. And the issue will hardly go away!

Some writers say that corruption is endemic in all governments, and that it is not peculiar to any continent, region and ethnic group. It cuts across faiths, religious denominations and political systems and affects both young and old, man and woman alike. Corruption is found in democratic and dictatorial politics; feudal, capitalist and socialist economies. Christian, Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist cultures are equally bedeviled by corruption.

[...]Since corruption is not new, and since it is a global phenomenon, it is not peculiar to Nigeria. However, corruption is pandemic in Nigeria (and in many other African and Asian nations); the leaders as well as the followers are corrupt. Consequently, it has defied all the necessary medicines. If there is a lack of control of corruption in every sphere in the nation, it is then like the old saying: When water chokes you, what do you take to wash it down? (The Philosophy of Aristotle, 451-ME2783, p.355).

I fear that the same kind of corrupt mentality is affecting our own country. Let's piss away spend money that we don't have in order to get ourselves out of financial difficulty that was directly caused by improper spending.

Sounds like Obama and his tax cheating Cabinet as well as the Democratic asspuppet Congress are raping virgins and lesbians, doesn't it?

Maybe we need to be converted. I'm about ready for some heavy lifting.
