Can we just talk about how much I like Justin and Jimmy together…
What Is Republicare?
Republicare is the non-socialistic, non-handout, non-affordable insurance program that insures health-care providers against catastrophic profit-margin problems.
Republicare includes all insurance providers, lobbyists, pharmaceutical manufacturers, medical-equipment…
Am attracted to the voice of Harris Wittels. Anyone else get strangely attracted to peoples voices? No accents necessarily but voices.
Yes! I love Jeff Bridges’ voice. Something about it is soothing to me.
Well, excuse me for commenting here but just what colonies did the United States have in Africa? My recollection is that we only had one overseas colony and that was the Philippines and that only lasted about fifty years.
Why is there no gold piled on the lands of Islam? Islam exploited Africa for fifteen hundred years talking gold, ivory and slaves. The period of American slavery, as disgusting and brutal as it was, only lasted a few hundred years. In the United States of America only about 80 years, a single lifetime. Moreover, importation of African slaves was abolished in 1807. Now even this is far too long of course but not nearly so long as the exploitation of Africa by the Middle East and Europe. There are black African slaves in the Islamic world to this day. Moreover, African slavery was introduced to the West by Islamic slave traders and the slaves were provided by these traders and other black Africans.
The fate of Africa has less to do with colonialism and more to do with disease and tribalism. Where these things are eradicated Africa blossoms as well as any region in the Americas, Europe or Asia. Africa, with its wealth and resources will be at the center of things in the 22nd century. A day will come when we will see a United States of Africa and Africa will, once again, take her rightful place upon the World stage.
I could be wrong, but this could also be interpreted as our exploitation of natural resources (oil, coltan, diamonds, etc). Obviously we take resources from places other than African nations, but if I had to venture a guess, I would say this is more about how the US has benefited from the extraction of resources (that being naturally occurring elements, the occurrence of slavery, etc). I would also like to comment that this cartoon only adds to the idea some people have in their heads- that of Africa being nothing but an impoverished continent full of savage peoples, which is most certainly not the case.
