MR President – This is your citizen’s opinion of your leadership

Kenya-Today - My Citizen’s plethora of a diagnostic profile evaluation, and assessments offers insights into a leadership ability that lack thereof. I may be overly analytical, very theoretical, and subject to bias… a better way to assess someone’s leadership prowess, is to give them some responsibility and see what they do with it.

Status Update:

Hello everyone, it's been a long time since I posted something about myself i've been firing up my notebook hoping to get hired somewhere but this appears to be just a lie. I walked into the offices of CAS and even made calls to New York JFK asking for a job, because they had called me and asked that I "come here" I agreed but never heard from them. So I been calling and it's made me think twice about going to the airport to ask for work. I been busy so much so that I tried UPS and sorry I showed up late I went there early one morning to find that all they were doing is taking down names and not giving me a job. I been praying I have lost touch with the online way of living but keeping up with Facebook unless you been living under a bridge you know what that is anyway, i'm just here to explain why I been gone for so long. These misconceptions from prospective employers happen so I wouldn't bother them any more i've been on the road rolling around and as a matter of fact my car needs to be repaired so I was waiting maybe until end of this week to get paid so I can get out there and shop. Thanks a lot for coming to my blog and passing thru I appreciate it, I attempted to have a shop where I could make some money and become like the next president elect it's on Amazon i've got some items still waiting to get paid for. But what I really wanted is a new car I been driving a lot lately and was hoping I could get something like this car, to explain further I know I don't have money but maybe one day I wake up and roll into one of the dealers and perhaps am able to afford it. Since I haven't been chatting I been looking around and is it just me that needs pajamas from the mall? I don't think so. Maybe there's a reason I heard the radio and really wanted to be in the air if 24 karats looks magical to you since, I can remember going to the mall and noticing the diamonds we weren't there for that though it was for a Roseta Stone the web got plenty of stuff. I had a word with the sales person at Helz pointing out the black rolex which I know someone wanted good luck Trump. I know better my cousin recently got her children from the hospital so I been making visits with my mom now that it's Christmas there isn't much to say I just hope your doing fine and staying on top of the game. Since leaving my last place of work I realize how much we want to obtain new stuff so I will be praying that you get what you want to have from Santa-Claus. I have good intentions for our country i'm forced to wake up and get out there unlike some of you weekend fans don't quit your jobs. Thanks a lot for surfing.

Nothing much to add i've been offline for a long time, I hope things are going well in here. It's Fall I just left our local mall where I went inside the Parks Mall to look around the theater see if a certain movie was playing, but there's nobody standing in line so I left. I'm usually the one attempting to look for stuff to purchase I wanted something. I wanted to watch a movie but I wasn't dressed for it, i'm confused and I have doubts about what I need to do about it just happened awhile ago. I work Monday thru Friday you can find me on Facebook let's chat despite disliking work, the blog is doing fine after I erased several of them so now only left with three easy job. Also my prayers go out to the people of Thailand who just lost King Bhumibol at Sriraj hospital. Thailand mourns their King may he rest in peace, more information here. The government has declared a year of official mourning and asked the people to avoid "joyful" activities for 30 days. The world's longest-reigning monarch died in Bangkok on October 13. He had been in poor health in recent years but his death still shocked the nation of 68 million who openly expressed their grief. I'm not a Thai but being in Bangkok and witnessing it left me feeling the pain of their loss. Quote from Haslinda Amin Facebook page

Neat knowing about you two getting together on a boat there are so many places to go to such as the French Riviera, I was just been released from lockup i've been home for about 11 days and have had some time to think about where I lived. I didn't know I was such an uncoordinated individual until the law requested for me to tell everyone what I had learned after my experience confined to a cell inside County Jail, State Hospital etc. I told them how I felt about pushing people around it's not everyday that you get woken up and asked to eat three times a day, read this and do that, so I accept pushing people as the only thing I did learn and wanted to share with y'all while in jail. This is just something I posted I don't mind having seen you together it's all good, I am not as talented as you two, I cannot think of a song but when I do it better not be about a monkey. I believe Iggy Azalea to be talented so is French Montana, I hope they can both work on presentation but this rumor is certainly going to have me rolling for a few more days. Thank the lord for his blessings I got two artists sitting on a boat next to each other, I got nothing more to say or do but thank the lord for his miracles each and every season.

I told them how I felt about pushing people around it's not everyday that you get woken up and asked to read the bible, read this and do that so I accept pushing people as the only thing I did learn while in jail.

Status Update

If your searching for some of my blogs which I had been maintaining they've been removed. I decided to shut them down because they were taking up so much space it was ridiculous anyway, if you want to know which ones I took down the list is here after this note. But why when there's nothing to do? I guess the reaction I was getting from onlookers they just kept punishing me I guess it sounded cool at first then it came apart. It just wasn't working like the reboot for the show Dallas making things happen just didn't look real, I wrote down the ideas and come to think of it I wasn't going to just waste my time I dunno who made me do it but creating a blog is pretty easy you just need to learn how to moderate and administer them. Until I felt that there wasn't going to be a need to write on blogs, I could use that time to build other things instead and make better sense work. So now that they're down I feel like it's no longer a gamble no longer a myth not having to use them their down, they weren't on my to do list no importance. Writing doesn't come easy to some people, a blog had numerous problems unlike what you think imagine de-linking leads to those near mishaps from well scripted, coding, social networking to poor web scripting. I think I checked even the biz news and everyone is just asleep on the things I posted etc I learned alot. In addition I spent time thinking during the Rio Olympics why I wasn't able to travel to Brazil it was easy?? I answered because I tried to maintain a weblog make money. It's because of people and my safety as well as yours that they stopped where I was taking all that work my fault I dunno. To tell the truth it became obvious how someone would just go on insulting me so the gamble, I can think on my own now work better you don't need to show me much enough. Additionally I was locked up and it made better sense saying nothing to anyone during the awards where was I?? so now I can dream and work there's space to imagine my way through trouble. You know i'm financially not able to obtain anything, not updating made them look awful. Now their gone there's more time to think more space during those sad moments. I realize it wasn't important it couldn't work maybe some other time like a sound from Baduism, immediately I assume it's one of two things. If you would like to compete do it read more about the games just do you do what you feel like.

Finally Home

Finally able to make a post it's been almost five months since I said much but i'm finally able to post at least something. I been away from my desk nothing to fear it's what i'm watching I guess with several blogs to run I barely have time to speak to folks. I ran into someone awhile ago you know introductions are an obsession I have done enough, hand shaking to know what to do when you meet someone who's done some work on bikes. I was at the North Texas State Hospital which is nearly 3 hours away from the Tarrant County jail, I wasn't able to leave but I ran into a person who has done many things to shape the motorcycle biz; anyway we fooled around and spoke somewhat about how to ride and his collection of ammunition which I thought was dangerous so I tried not speaking to him too much. So I asked him what about the work he's done towards motorbikes and he told me a thing or two about the imprint on the back of his Harley Davidson t-shirt he has on. Which didn't resemble black it was faded out, so I kept quiet and tried to make sure that I was able to remember the title name since they've been building custom chopper bikes now for years. I hope your looking at this from the stand point of engineers and are not afraid to push up on stuff. I am finally back at home my car is in the garage I am unable to move it, I think the stickers are old but I will be out on the road soon as I get a job. I been gone but it wasn't long I heard so much about the "N word" that I don't feel it necessary to use it. On Friday I packed up my things and was told to wait for my ride, I may have left those dudes at the hospital but I promised to put in a word about them in case I got out. I ate three times a day and caught up with the action you know the fighting over territory, the constant request to eat noodles, the visitors, the prayer etc. I will try not getting drunk despite my loneliness inside NTSH that place did plenty to feed us and provide me with a place to sleep, I deny smoking a cigar while using someone phone outside. But I called home to speak to my cousin who agreed to come get me from outside the Justice center. I called my cousin to come get me it was 5 months I am guessing since leaving home to go to court when I got released right at the front of the court house I made up my mind. No fooling around with drugs especially alcohol, they called me to go speak to the judge it was around 10 AM and I had been thinking about leaving jail the previous day so I thank everyone for their support.

Is Trump the American version of Berlusconi?

Khaleej Times - In fact, few media tycoons - Berlusconi owns Italy's main commercial television channels and several daily newspapers (either directly or through his family) - have ever been as freewheeling in their use of libel litigation to silence journalists and other critics. The famous Italian anti-mafia writer Roberto Saviano referred to Berlusconi's "mud machine," with which he would smear anyone who dared stand in his way. (Full disclosure: As Editor of The Economist, I was the target of two libel suits by Berlusconi.)

Macklemore Regrets Not Warning Iggy Azalea He Was Name-Checking Her in 'White Privilege II'

Y! Music - The Seattle rapper dished out bars about the perception of white acts in hip-hop who have been accused of appropriating the culture. Macklemore references Iggy Azalea, Elvis Presley and Miley Cyrus during a verse where he rhymes: “You’ve exploited and stolen the music, the moment/ The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toy with/ The culture was never yours to make better/ You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea.”

Azalea even kicked up dust on her Twitter following the song’s release by tweeting, “he shouldnt have spent the last 3 yrs having friendly convos and taking pictures together at events etc if those were his feelings.”)

Tyga Reveals Why Paul McCartney Was Turned Away from His Grammys After-Party

The rapper took to Jimmy Kimmel Live! to explain.


That's funny I been to many places and wasn't able to get in I don't know about you but it's silly trying to get into clubs without cash money, it's the main reason I don't like certain types of females. I had just left the crib after returning from Taco Bell I was at the movie theater watching this flick called Karate Kid anyway I even stopped to grab some CD's but ran into some customer I assumed were Asian gangsters. I remember it was just before the World Cup matchups in South Africa. A lot of crazy stuff happening this morning I wasn't going to get upset and throw some bottles but it definitely could have been presented in a better way, after getting past the drive-thru I arrived home without blame them dudes at the window must have been a bit too excited or even against me.

I wanted to get out there I had been indoors all week so I wanted to see what was happening, at first I got lost but then driving at night was nothing new to me I do it often. I tried getting some money but it's nothing secretive. I don't often get invites either unlike when we would go to NYC during the weekends and have no way of coming back. I used to live back in New-Jersey nowday's "less talking" happens but it's on a sad note a level he may have found high thinking it's always seeming climactic. I even get to hear the threat level on the radio station sometimes. I make wrong decisions it's annoying but let me tell you there is something over there which you need to notice. I was in an Arab country we trying to catch our flight me and mom it's early morning we needed food we refused to go get me something to eat. So I started to ask what was going on and as soon as I see the whole picture I reach for the GPS to tell me how far before getting to Houston our destination. After arriving in Kenya I go to bed and wake up to find everyone crowding in front of the White House because, Osama was no longer alive he got killed.

I go to Mcdonald's but I got no money you see what I mean getting into the clubs or catching trips inside taxi's cabs, horseback riding, reading a newspaper etc, anything is possible. As a matter of fact I while roaming around Nairobi, KE and early in the morning they're holding prayers it's so loud, someone a Muslim prayer during a tornado like thunderstorm someone asking if it would wipe away our belongings. Yes late in the evening sometime early going to the bus station to pick someone up and we got no time for conversation less time to look at news it's hard. But I got people telling me about wealthy neighborhood's unlike poor ghettoes there's no money no job, because of my age, ethnicity, codes certain stuff isn't allowed it's like strict enforcement at fashion shows what you saw was rubbish your attire can ruin everything even at restaurants you wouldn't believe it. Some things you catch others you don't it's just bizarre how people refuse to co-operate you've either got it or you don't, in or you out, arriving/going/leaving, entering/never leaving. It's somewhat like at the border if you've got no point walking in there without carrying credentials and dressed to impress who's going to give you anything understand.

What upset me about it is as soon as I arrived I parked my car across the street and compared to the last time I went to this location, something weird took place. I got out of my car and I didn't bother to look but it seem like partying got out of hand and stuff going down you see folks talking, from over here it did seem ruined, it wasn't until I drove back from the venue outside nearby I discover some beer bottle laying there and a police woman coming towards me. They were like asking me for $5 at the entrance and I told her I didn't have it could I be allowed to get in for free? I spoke then left I heard it cost $10 I drove all the way out to D-town and like always I didn't have money. Depending on what you recall does anyone remember the radio van parked outside the entrance booth outside a club next to the mix master. I waited there alone standing while someone ran inside coming back without entering the event, I even had my own relative show me how you couldn't get into certain places late at night the club. Once I walked away trying to sit at the bar I looked down and there were some broken bottles of liquor out on the street. So compared to the last time I noticed a law enforcement officer rolling by, it wasn't going to get any worse because of soccer world-cup outdoors clubbing to see another waiting to perform in D-town. Because of God but anyway it was cool leaving without getting caught up that club was packed late that evening.

Gianni Infantino pulls off stunning victory to win FIFA presidential election

Dallas News - I have been having problems with my cable box to put it another way I haven't been seeing much respect for the sport in terms of visualizing and understanding who and what happens on the field. Ever since watching a matchup during one of these public holidays someone pointed me towards realizing there needed to be something said and done about getting the rights to watch such events, I was in East-Africa and they had a passion for the sports namely it's well worth saying they didn't have to send the trophy there for others to see. I don't know about you but during the holidays the only thing I want to watch is sports I been complaining to the point where my own mother has refused to allow me to stand in places that don't support the sport, desolate untenanted areas such as auto parts stores where you can just walk in and make decisions. I think because they show special teams and announcements it's going to be a challenge standing up when everyone has been sitting down and vice versa. This appears to be a worthy candidate the photo however shows him to be a rogue maybe if everyone could stop being rude to one another and celebrate the many occasions, the instances FIFA has played and done a good job. I really wish the candidate was me but I've run into people who don't necessarily care they just want their cash and that's final. Good luck to him provided they take the sport of soccer where future players and coaches have taken it where to next? nothing more to say.

The return of Kim Jong-un

MSN - I wasn't looking forward to typing this but I would like to share what I think about the Korean government and it's people. I think they're cool to be given the benefit to be on a James Bond flick named Die Another day coupled with, marching next to one another with weapons, life couldn't be anymore dangerous. Their reporters aren't hiding from scrutiny ask any foreign media source since I came across this one magazine about politics called "Current Affairs" the item looked small placed at the bottom of a stack of newspapers at the bookstore, during those days I normally just witnessed patrons sitting there ordering tea. I sometimes would step inside to get a book or if I was with my mother she would be in there studying while I waited for her to finish. The item didn't catch me by surprise I wasn't about to just sit there and watch the Matrix Reloaded so I left home to go in search of stuff to read and that thing bothered me, but because it obviously had a resemblance to Red Herring I wasn't going to pass the opportunity. I want to mention that I been noticing and hearing the news about North & South and it's puzzling, I can be in search of stuff to read from the newspaper stand and here is this country which cannot seem to stop battling the other for supremacy. They're very corrupt so much so that it's not easy getting a good feed on the news especially when your away or a traveler with little time to use Social Networks. I don't want to ignore the few times I've been forced to follow other folks who don't live close to me they are across town, the ghetto bird helicopters and instances where I found Noodles thrown or left on the table leave me no choice but to post this entry. I don't work and haven't been able to find a job it's been years since I left school but my car is parked out there whoever got some change for me to wash my clothes, I can be on my way to work and having to walk into areas where I feel unsecure the Military news stories are available but it doesn't make me bulletproof people like him make sporting events stellar. I don't know about you a milkshake or two doesn't bar merchants from from selling them cheating on them etc. Do they know about the imprisonments how far could someone be requesting to be taken? it goes to show what someone could doing in the middle of the night, their society is poisoned, murder, harassment etc it used to be cool beans but not anymore. I don't know about superb all they've been doing is rising to the occasion claiming extreme terror and control of other nations. What's a leader supposed to do next? How will they repair both sides? who knows since it all began late one summer afternoon. Prison is real out here in today's world a lot happens and nobody knows what to say and do, I wouldn't like to be sent to Cuba over something I experienced, all your likely to understand is the issue having to do with tribalism Obama slapped them with sanctions.

Life could be better beyond these circumstances driving Japanese cars within The States I am forced into the arrogance of not being able to obtain albums like, The Miseducation of Lauren Hill, conversely Teflon Don and so on.

The allies also say their annual springtime military drills will be the largest ever. South Korea’s defense minister said Thursday that about 15,000 US troops will take part, double of the number Washington normally sends.

The North says the drills are preparation for a northward invasion.

Seoul defense officials also said that they began preliminary talks on Feb. 7 with the United States on deploying the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, the same day North Korea conducted what it said was a satellite launch but is condemned by Seoul and Washington as a banned test of missile technology.

Fed-Ex Ground

I would like to share this entry because I used to work for the company and happened to find this interesting, it's about small business for anyone wanting to know or use their services. They hired me to work as a package handler and I worked there making $9.96 an hour I however got hired somewhere else a place called Gate Gourmet. I put in so many applications but Fed-Ex hired me to work the afternoon pre-load shift or something. This sounded confusing because when I showed up for work they were constructing the entryway and had us check in at the booth or whatever, I would sometimes come back to ask if I could go in and work but left my wrist band in the car. It became bothersome having to do all that changing of gear so while I was about to go home one day they terminated me. It's because of a dispute I had with the supervisor she asked that I come into the office to speak to my manager. The manager told me to wait in the break room to be told I wasn't going to be employed anymore so I just stood there wondering what else was left to do, I had made some mistakes loading the truck I understand the job was difficult but it was time to clock in/out. I wasn't interested in the way they treated employees because the work I heard thru the grapevine was stressful. This may help anyone wanting to do biz globally, compared to UPS I don't know where else you can go, what else you can do to repair a damaged reputation. The other job sent me packing also I was looking to perhaps continue showing up and giving strangers rides before arriving, I wasn't offered a raise just a t-shirt and a photograph. I requested that they offer me incentives like for instance instead of standing in the cold freezer, hand me a SIDA badge, I'm told this violates company rules.

Status Update

Hello, wassup? I just wanted to let visitors of this blog know that I will not be able to post updates, the reason is it's been three weeks since I was unable to completely shutoff my Lenovo. I went to work out or whatever and when I returned home from the fitness center a police woman knocked on the door in response to a fire alarm that had made her come to my home, it's weird because the same thing happened late one evening when I couldn't remember the fire alarm passcode. Soon after shutting it off or recalling the password which I entered into the machine a fire truck pulls up and I had to explain to them what I was doing. The notebook during the Christmas holidays couldn't shutoff so I had to sit there at my desk thinking about the New-Year etc, unfortunate because I wasn't able to understand the chat session it was just after using search engine(s) from my wireless cellular T-Mobile phone that I was able to locate a number after quickly shutting it down I called them. Lenovo asked for a serial number from underneath the notebook someone hacked into my computer no further problems. Not funny because I was introduced to someone who didn't even have a Facebook account, they in turn had to fly back home after the holiday's on short notice, she promised she was going to come back I cannot believe this happened lately it's been practically impossible staying awake. But in my opinion I think she got away with finding where I stayed I don't trust people who approach you and convince you their beautiful etc. This problem occurring shortly after hearing tornado warnings and sirens from a thunderstorm. To my surprise it was unable to shutoff but that's not a surprise I have issues with Microsoft sometime after obtaining the computer I installed an Operating System which I searched for and downloaded Windows 10, I am unable to use the notebook so you will not be getting regular updates from me until further notice.
