All indication from my doctor that my conditions is really deteriorating and it is quite obvious that I wouldn’t live more than two months, according to my doctors and in all indication regards to medical analysis.

Please I want you to note that this fund is still in the bank where my husband deposited it. I am going to advice my lawyer to change my last will to your name and file in an application for the transfer of the money in your name. Lastly, I honestly pray that this money when transferred will be used for the said purpose even though I am late then or alive, because I have come to find out that wealth acquisition without God is vanity according to the wisest king in Israeli Solomon, and I made the promise to God that the fund will be use to help the needy and the less privilege.

Democracy Is So 2005
In an article in Bloomberg Businessweek, Joshua Kurlantzick (Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations) mentions China's and Russia's arguments that democracy eventually leads to chaos. This was a great fear as democratic reforms spread through Europe at the beginning of the Nineteenth Century. Democracy did indeed run amok in France and the conservative approach of those who wrote our own Constitution reflected that fear. Today, many "democratic" nations are turning power over to autocratic leaders whom they hope will solve their economic problems which have perhaps been exacerbated by "too much freedom." This is a real threat to the United States today and I recommend that you read the article. Its provocative title is "Democracy Is So 2005."
The article suggests that autocratic dictators are being turned to because of the "good things" they might bring about, even though freedom is allowed to go down the tube. Let me (not the article's author) dwell on an extreme example to make this point. Today, no one questions that Benito Mussolini was an oppressive fascist dictator, who partnered with Hitler in bringing about the Second World War. But before then, when he came to power in the Twenties, first legitimately serving as Prime Minister and then as Italy's self-declared dictator in 1925, he did manage to accomplish things which more democratic governments had previously been unable to.
He reclaimed land for Italy, like the Pontine Marshes, which were drained and reclaimed south of Rome. With resources developed from such projects, he created more railroads, sports stadiums, schools, and bridges. This was thought to be a solution for unemployment. Also, he made farmers concentrate more on farming specific crops. In the long run this did make Italy a little more self-sufficient. Then, in 1930 he gave industries more money for steel production, while also increasing the use of hydro-electric power. But in accomplishing these things, the liberties and freedom of all Italians were done away with.
Nowadays, autocrats remember to get re-elected through supposedly democratic elections after a few years in office, maintaining the facade of democracy, but any opposition has no chance whatsoever in such elections. Russia's Putin does this periodically. Again, I ask you to go back to the link above and read the Businessweek article. Click on that line just above Il Duce's picture.
Most of the time, we use an alligator between articles on this blog. Occasionally, for variety, we have substituted a turtle for the gator. In the last posting, we used a worm. There are plenty of all three such creatures here in Florida. Well, today, in view of the middle piece on this posting, we are using a Hippo. There also are many of them in Florida, but not the animal kind.
