This article fails to explain the real reason cellphones have become so prevalent in Kenya and much of Africa, it enabled farmers to negotiate prices for their crops before getting into town, also price checking other towns/villages in the region.

Cellphones have become critical in many African nation's trade as they lack any other reliable communications infrastructure. Also the companies building cell towers don't need to build as many, they just pump the wattage up on existing towers far higher than we here in America or the EU would.

Actually if anything I find it humorous.

Assumptions that must be made if the birther stuff is to be true:

1) The Republicans let it happen, or were too retarded to stop it. With all the dirty digging that goes on for every election, if Barack had not been American born it would have come out within days of him announcing he was going to run. The fact it never did means either that the Republicans knew he wasn't qualified and still said nothing about it, or that they were so utterly inept at the most basic of fact checking skills that they never caught on to it.

2) If Republicans let it happen, then that means they are in with the Democrats and are working together. In which case no Republican gets to complain about the Democrats since they're apparently the same team that is just throwing up smoke to confuse the stupid people. I'm sure there's some new world order/illuminati/the jews did it angle in there somewhere too. If the Republicans were just so inept that years went by without them catching on that the guy they were running against didn't even qualify for the position he was running for, then do we really want them in charge of anything? I mean, its like saying you want to re-elect a police chief that can't figure out that someone is selling stolen stereos out of the trunk of his own squad car.

I don't buy that. Obama was American born, thats all there is to it. The real question is what the birther people are trying to cover up with this distraction.
