    Hey Shrub

    You may remember a few years ago on the Politico we had thread about Mandela and if you remember I have a chip on my shoulder on what happened in Africa with all of the Soviet Unions proxy wars that were taking place under the disguise of freedom fighters. My fiance was raped and murder along with her entire family in Rhodesia in 1978 by communist terrorist. And that's what they were called, communist and terrorist.

    So it's personal with me.

    "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela

    It was Mandela and apartheid that first ignited the flames of protest against injustice in my soul during college in the early 80's. The world lost an incredible human being today.

    Regardless of one's opinion's of the man, would we all not be better humans to at least let his body cool before dragging it through the mud?

    Rest in peace. Prayers of relief and solace to his loved ones.

    It only took seven posts and I can't go further so as to stay out of trouble .
    I have no use for anyone who will bash someone right after they die. That show a total lack of class, respect, and humility. Some people just can't give politics a rest.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    This is a political debating forum. Belated RIP as well to all the victims of the terrorist acts of Saint Mandela's beloved ANC. Pray for protection for the regular people of SA from the psychopathic government now in charge of SA. Yes, Mandela's legacy.
