No Child left behind 2

By K.T.Nhamo On Zealous Thierry From outside the field of education, “No Child Left Behind” seems like a great program, one that will force Zimbabwe to live up to its ideal: a free and equal education for everyone. We will train good citizens and productive workers, no matter where they live or what the economicContinue reading “No Child left behind 2”

How worried should we be about income inequality?

By K. T. NHAMO On Zealous Thierry Forced economic equality is socialism. It’s unZimbabwean to be for socialism. But Zimbabwean’s strength is our majority middle class… How worried should we be about income inequality?

Re-declaring our Independence!

They’re listening in on all of us, you know. Scanning for key words. Of course you know, even if you won’t admit it. They want you to know. Because the real purpose of the domestic spying program is to scare you, so you won’t talk openly with your friends and neighbors. People keeping their opinionsContinue reading “Re-declaring our Independence!”

The Greatest race.

Right now, I see a race between the corruption scandals destroying the RP and the RP destroying Zimbabwe. I hope the scandals will develop quicker: Give voters a heads-up about what’s happening.

What weContinue reading “What we have isn’t politics.”

But in this day, in this country, to be a Zanu-Pf is to buy into the most corrupt and contemptible form ofContinue reading “Today’s Zanu Pf”

ED Did me a huge favor!!

He woke me up from my fantasy. He proved to me once and for all that voting for an intelligent well-meaning president does nothing to stop paid-for politicians funneling all our tax money to their business cronies. Both parties are out to suck us dry! Election campaigns are a fake “reality” show. The contestants areContinue reading “ED Did me a huge favor!!”

Why should we care?

I don’t get all the fuss over the “failure” of the government to help, Chimanimani. Why should we care about those losers? All that bitching about a few flooded basements! I’ve got nothing against charity: let the Salvation Army give them soup and blankets. But people who choose to live in a crime-ridden area proneContinue reading “Why should we care?”

I’m Afraid Homosapien Has Had His Day.

All over the world, fundamentalist belief is gaining power. The stupid and ill-educated are easily scared of things like…

Our drug policies are evil!

Can we please wake up and admit that our drug policies are evil? Not just mistaken and ineffective, but..
