    Not to put too fine a point on it, but where the white man has colonized, correct, Philip?

    And I agree with leeintulsa...that the southern countries could look to their northern neighbors for pointers on how to get out from under tyranny, no matter what government started the tyranny or what European counrty started the plundering of the Africa's natural resources in the first place.

    @Gonzo: be sure to order apple juice.

    @American Idiot: you're welcome. I would have gotten rid the drone bees, too. My children are more important than a drone any day. Can't have the unmanned kind flying around now, can we?

      My understanding is that the workers sting, but the drones do not. But I wasn't about to go sorting through them all.

  7. Philip, not just where white-man roams. For every African slave taken captive by an American slave trader, there were 10 taken by a Muslim slave master. Even China has played a major role stripping Africa of her resources. And they aren't all white. Those who offer and accept bribes will do it with anyone willing to join them no matter the race. One thing they ain't is racist.
