Beautiful country, very hard working people for the most part, totally corrupt and ineffectual government.
Grinding poverty on the scale you cannot even imagine just blocks from the gleaming downtown. I think that Obama’s brother lives in one of these slums, lol.
There is very little in the life of the average Kenyan to celebrate, trust me. Give them their little moment to celebrate “one of their own”.
Kenya’s main source of revenue is from eco-tourism, usually Americans or Europeans, as they have no oil, gold, diamonds, gas or agricultural over subsistence llevels. Oh, they do have a ginormous US Navy port in Mombassa. There is also a lot of charity dollars that support the economy.
There will be little to celebrate in Kenya when the 1%ers no longer travel there, or give to charity, and when the military cuts cause the Navy base to close as the Obama war on the productive moves forward. They are a nation that barely keeps its head above water in good times.
Let ‘em cheer.
Just like the Germans cheered their Hitler and died by the millions as a result of his policies.
@Death: Too bad charitable giving under Obama will plumment so I doubt the Kenyans will be the recipients of Romney tee-shirts. Those tee-shirts will literally be stripped from the backs of the productive class anyhoo under the new taxes and business failures coming soon.
