    Do make as least some minimal effort to understand the phrase "their problem, not mine".

    I don't care if he lives for two hundred years and never leaves office. He's an excellent example of why no one should ever support anything that even remotely looks like socialism, and the Zimbabwe-ans (whatever) deserve whatever they get for electing him. Gee, they went from exporter of food to "can't give away 100,000,000,000 dollar bank notes" in less than five years, thanks to the wonderfulness of socialism.

    If they like him so much, they can keep him. They wanted him.

    I do suppose, though, if he's ejected, the Obama team will snap him up as an economic advisor.

    We'll have to see what develops.

    Their problem, not ours.

    The US ain't the po-leece force of the world, remember?
    No one is implying that the U.S. take any action. The thread is about African politcs, nothing more. Geez your hard on Africa! Will you be saying it's their problem if Iran gets nukes to threaten Israel, or will that be our problem to police the world?

    Do you go out of your way to visit struggling restaurants across town and yell at their owners that it's their problem, not yours? If you don't care, then why are you posting in this thread at all?

    He wasn't elected because he was a socialist, he was elected because he was a post-colonial hero in the eyes of Zimbabweans. But that was nearly 30 years ago.

    Like I said, he hasn't been elected to anything in years.

    Are you an actual person, or are you just a liberal satire of what conservatives/libertarians believe? The more I talk to you, the more I wonder.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
    What?
