President Barack Obama has told African leaders it is time to stop blaming colonialism and "Western oppression" for the continent's manifold problems.

The world was still wondering if the presidential eyes were set on a Brasilian booty, when this other shocker hit them - Obama,
having in part African heritage, pointed out that Africans are responsible for their own destinies now, so they should drop colonial excuses and say "yes we can".

Well, that's what I've been saying to Brazilians for a long time. It's quite effective as Brazilian girls immediatetly turn around and walk off, giving me the chance to check out their booty. (I can totally understand Obama and Sarkozy - you gotta keep your eyes on the booty as the face is not the best feature...)

Thanks to ABC Network, we can all see that Obama, if he looked at the girl at all, it was more of a sly fox look, masterly done; Sarkozy, as a good Frenchman, had the "horny dog" look, also known in Europe as the "Berlusconi look".

Speaking of looks, a quick look to History reveals that Obama is completely right.
Everyone, at one time or another has been someone else's b*tch - all civilizations on Earth have had its rise and falls.
Old Egypt, Rome, Bantu etc...
Rome colonized most of Europe, many Europeans were enslaved, Romans brought many advances to these societies as well.
Later on, Europeans would use their advances to do the same on other parts of the globe. When they left, someone else took their place.
Bottom line - if it hadn't been the Romans, it would have been the Arabs, or the Chinese, or the Africans; it's basically just a question of who does what and when.
In some cases, what people really can't get over is the racial factor - it's ok that some Africans were colonising other Africans and were also involved in the slave commerce; but how dare the Europeans?
That's what Obama - a "black" man (mainly for white people), was saying.
Stop being losers, get over excuses and get your act together - this goes to many Brazilians as well.

Who cares?

In this day and age, there are still people who actually believe that there is a God and people that don't believe that "He" exists.
Fine. Like people discussing which religion is "better" wasn't enough...

What do I believe? I believe you people need to get a girl/boyfriend.

Personally, I think atheism and religion are basically two sides of the same coin - philosophies pretending to know what happens after one dies.

I belong to a third category - those who don't care about flipping the coin; I respect your views, whatever they are, and I guess we will find out who's right pretty soon...

He's been the talk of the Summer and nearly an obsession of the press all over the world and even here in Bloguistan.

Shorten to just Ronaldo, CR's name is finally on the back of Real Madrid's shirts, right over his new number, a big (9) nine.

That number, once raised to mythical proportions by R.M.'s Di Stefano - one of the greatest of all time - is said to be cursed.

It hasn't bring luck nor success to any player that used it since the other Ronaldo, the Brazilian, aka "the phenomenon", or simply "the fat", wore it in the then team known as the "Galaticos".

The Brazilian sunked to a new low when was caught in some Hotel with a tranny. He later said he was not aware of the fact "she" was a he.

But fear not, CR's fans! The Portuguese stud will not fall victim to silly superstitions... also, his reputation was never that good. If he has survived Paris Hilton, than he can only go up, from there.

Yesterday, C. Ronaldo generated the kind of mania that only Superstars like the late King of Pop or Madonna use to get. Over 80 thousand screaming fans took every seat available at the Bernabeu, leaving many fans outside that couldn't get in, while others were watching his first day at Real Madrid live on TV. And it was just C. Ronaldo in RM's colours; no big game, no UEFA final, not even the team's warm up - they all wanted to see just one man in his new shorts and jersey - Cristiano Ronaldo.

This is why some people are wrong to say that R. Madrid went insane over C. Ronaldo; the world has gone insane over other people less talented before, it's all a question of marketing. Yesterday it was proven that there is a huge market out there hungry for CR9...

Most people who spoke against the biggest deal of this Summer (and ever), saying no football player was worth that amount that RM was ready to offer for CR, overlooked the fact that Ronaldo is more than a Footy player - he is a brand name and just as valuable, or more, outside the pitch as he his when he's playing.

Real Madrid started paying him off as soon as the deal was announced. In a few years, they will have a profit, regardless of the sport results they'll get.

Seems to me they made a mistake, though. They are selling a shirt that is exactly the same name and number as the one the Brazilian Ronaldo had; so, why should people bother to get one when all they have to do is get their old one from the wardrobe... unless the mophs got to them first.

Oléeee - New Campaign?

After ALLGARVE and WEST COAST of EUROPE, the now ex-minister of Economy of Portugal has invested on another Portuguese ancient tradition - just not sure if he meant Cuckolding or Bullfighting.

Before PETA hacks Bloguistan, let me state here and clear that I do not support Bullfighting nor the suffering of any animal.
Except some politicians.

Now, at least bulls have PETA, cuckolds have nothing but endless shame.

Portugal has long banned the killing of the bull in the arena, with only a local exception.
The killing of the trust between a couple, however, starts with opening an exception.

We don't know for sure what Mr. Pinho had in mind, besides his two index-fingers; but it was clearly a bad idea.
