ICC: Wrapping my head around the contradictions….

When virtue is lost, benevolence appears, when benevolence is lost right conduct appears, when right conduct is lost, expedience appears. Expediency is the mere shadow of right and truth; it is the beginning of disorder. ~ Lao Tzu

Help me understand these conflicting reactions and existing conditions in light of PEV and confirmation of charges against four of the Ocamp0 6:
1. GEMA/PNU leaning friends are angry that charges were confirmed against UK and Muthaura, not because they believe in either’s innocence but because “he is our man”
2. URP/RV friends are angry that charges were confirmed against WR and Sang not because they believe in either’s innocence but because “he is our man”, but are happy that Kosgey is off the hook also because “he is our man”
3. Both groups are happy that the main “our man” from the opposing side isn’t off the hook, but yet the main men are in an alliance of shared interests against the “other man” who ultimately be blamed for ICC’s actions.
4. Both camps pray to God to get their men off the hook. The very same God that shivering IDPs pray to for justice everyday.
5. Are all IDPs genuine former landowners/farmers? Reason I ask is if they can identify the land taken from them, shouldn’t the government have the responsibility to resettle them on those very lands and provide security and programs to create cohesion? (or at the least ask those occupying these lands illegally just what kind of lawless land they think can allow one to settle on land that they took by force). Otherwise if the government resettles IDPs in “friendly” areas, doesn’t that vindicate criminals who evicted fellow citizens while also making it the government’s responsibility not to provide security but, rather, to demarcate safe areas based on ethnicity. What good is that for a country seeking cohesion and/or claiming to uphold laws.

Fighting Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)

Take away the right to say “fuck” and you take away the right to say “fuck the government.”  ~Lenny Bruce

 

Wikipedia goes offline for 24 hours in the next 15 hours in solidarity with the fight against the new draconian SOPA act that might pass in the States and make free speech online a priviledge regulated under guise of copyright law. In the wake of this several crucial websites might go offline and here is how to access them should it come to that:

Here’s a tip for the do-it-yourself crowd: Go to your computer’s Start menu, and either go to “run” or just search for “cmd.” Open it up, and type in “ping [website address],” 


Once you have the IP for a website, all you really need to do is enter it like you would a normal URL and hit enter/press go. Typing in “208.85.240.231” should bring you to the front page of AO3, for example, just as typing “174.121.194.34/dashboard” should bring you straight to your Tumblr dashboard. Since we’re obviously bracing for the worst case scenario which would involve you not being able to access the internet regularly, you should, save this list.

A simple guide to finding and keeping a Kenyan man

Confusion reigns, the men say they can’t find a good woman in Kenya, the women say the same thing, thought I’d spell it out in point form in probably the shortest article I’ve ever written.

1. If you’re looking for a potential husband then be/or pretend to be good at housekeeping, being/pretending to be a great cook would help too.

2. If you’re looking for a drinking partner then have a great personality, be/pretend to be humorous and familiarize yourself with the Japanese 50/50 concept or otherwise embrace the concept of FB (not facebook, duh).

3. If you are looking for a sugardaddy/mpango wa kando, better have the looks of a trophy girl and/or the kambasutra skills that supposedly are taught in Machakos.

4. If you’re looking for an arranged marriage where you accept whatever is on offer, join a charismatic congregation.

Mix up any of the four different approaches, and prepare for a lifetime of disappointment.
