Have a good look, it's where we're headed.

He is trying to get rid of white farmers? Got a link?

Yes, the guns and bibles crowd. Or maybe you forgot about that one.

What economic horrors has he levied against them?

Not too fast, I need to get some popcorn first...

Oh and don't forget "you didn't build that". It's a real crowd pleaser with people who actually work for a living, something Obama has never done.


Are you a troll, or just one of the morons that keep repeating line that out of context?
Thanks for the election by the way. You guys helped us more than you'll ever have the reasoning power to realize.

You had me up to here.  Nobody on Fark can possibly be unaware as to how far out of context that was twisted.

3/10 overall, 7/10 for everything prior to this.

Came here to say that. At least Zimbabwe has a surplus compared to a $17T deficit.


You don't seem to understand how debt and deficits work. Just because we're in debt and have deficit doesn't mean we don't have cash; if it did the government couldn't operate.

But, Paul Krugman has said repeatedly that if the government takes enough privately-created wealth, the economy will boom.

I don't see what's so funny. That would mean Zimbabwe has about 17 trillion more dollars than the US.

There's a problem with crowds shooting bibles?

super_grass: Colonialism and centuries of oppression by the west has rendered a nation unable to fend for itself or manage its finances and now we're looking down on them?

It takes a special kind of ignorance and assholery to do that.


"Zimbabwe's economy went into free-fall at the turn of the millennium, after President Robert Mugabe began seizing white-owned farms."

What part of THEY DID IT TO THEMSELVES DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND?

The ignorance is on you. Learn to read.

GUTSU: Bondith: The comments are an interesting blend of outright racism and religioderp, which a leavening of RANDOM CAPSLOCK thrown in for good measure.

Well when the ANC's demand that white farmers turn over their land, money, and daughters... I can see where they might get a bit flustered, especially if one of their neighbors had just been butchered with machetes.

Nothing on that page mentioned daughters, and the ANC is a South African party and not Zimbabwean, but apart from pedantic quibbling I see your point.

However, I still think the "AFRICA, turn back to GOD and WHITE PEOPLE" guy needs to dial back a bit and maybe learn the correct use of capital letters.

Obama's trying to seize all white owned farm land?
Pssst the stock market is at an all time high, and investor confidence is growing.


Where is Fusillade76 when you need him? That guy will drop like 30 charts on a thread in 2 minutes flat that show our economic indicators mostly all going in the right direction.

"Zimbabwe's economy went into free-fall at the turn of the millennium, after President Robert Mugabe began seizing white-owned farms. The move demolished investor confidence in the country, paralysed production, prompted international sanctions and scared off tourists."

So, how's that racism workin out for ya?
