This century, despite the economic turmoil and the insecurity what the future holds is a glories time to live.
For one thing tyrants of the world are scared to their pants and in fear their lives are in danger as much as they endanger the people they rule. This equalizing act couldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the advance of theology tyrants work day-and-night to destroy.
The downfall and conviction of a life sentence of Mubarak of Egypt was a sign of what to come next in every nation of the world. The best the remaining despicable tyrants could play is hide-and-seek with technology to doge their fate.
Our own mini tyrant and the collection of his zombies are acting like a fallen race horse struggling to getup to join the race in progress. Recently the tyrant ban Skype with a lam excuse of national security. When that was not enough, they added another excuse the national telecom losing revenue.

Some praise him for connecting 50% of the population, in contrast less than 1% for Zenawi. What does our esteem tyrant does to get on the top he bans Skype. Talking on the phone with .4% connectivity is too luxurious for him to fatten his and cronies’ pocket book. Worest yet 15 years sentence for violation.
But, when it come collecting money for him and his cronies not even the Grand Dam is impossible. If truth needs to be told, the sorry tyrant would do better if he begs money for wiring the country with the latest technology but again, there is no money for him and his cronies, not to mention he will be strangled to death with the same wire.
What did his sorry stooges do? They praise him for bringing growth as he told them on the only technology he sat on. Now my fellow country people, how could these stooges live in a cage and civilization at the same time to make it through the day?
As we celebrate the dawn of freedom and the dusk of tyranny everyday, we like to remind tyrant and his disciples they are fugitives from justice. Like every fugitive they are living in hiding.
