"When two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts do blow out fire." - William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew

WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE - STEVE JOBS

“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted being, just like me. God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart, not the illusions brought about by wealth. Memories precipitated by love is the only true riches which will follow you, accompany you, giving you strength and light to go on. The most expensive bed in the world is the sick bed. You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone to bear sickness for you. Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – Life. Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” - SJ

EVIL CANNOT BE TRULY DESTROYED.

"The threat of evil is ever present. We can contain it as long as we stay vigilant, but it can never truly be destroyed. - Lorraine Warren (Annabelle, the movie)


PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI, BREAKING THE LAW.


Icheoku says regrettably his Vice President Osibanjo, a lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, is fidgeting around, while the president is wrecking havoc to Nigeria's hard fought democracy. Icheoku says by flagrantly disobeying court's orders, the president is doing grave damage to the very foundation on which every democracy is based. Osibanjo, Icheoku says defend your honor as a servant of the law and tell your boss that he has no choice in the matter of releasing detainees who have been granted bail.

NNAMDI KANU, A PRISONER OF CONSCIENCE !!!

Icheoku says the more they hold him, the bigger, the better and the larger he becomes; and more resolved on his quest for an independent homeland of Biafra. A thinking government of Nigeria would let him go and just monitor his activities if they have the time. Icheoku calls on President Muhammadu Buhari and his advisers to let Nnamdi Kanu go, moreso now that two courts of competent jurisdictions have granted him bail, one unconditionally.

DNC PHILADELPHIA 2016 DAY 1, IF ONLY ANOTHER PARTY WAS IN POWER?

Icheoku says listening to all the speakers today in Philadelphia at the Democratic Party National Convention 2016, one would think that Icheoku and/or Trump has been at the helm of affairs these past eight years. No one would have the slightest inkling that the same people asking Americans to once again trust them with their destiny for yet another four more years and/or eight, are the same people running this country and by extension a world on bended knees by reason of Islamist terrorism, this past eight years. 

Icheoku says if they had solutions to the myriad of problems facing the country, was eight years not a long enough period of time for them to have solved these problems? If eight years is not enough for them to figure out what is wrong, would another four or may be even eight more years make any difference? 

Icheoku warns that doing the same thing, the same way, all over and over again and expecting a different result is insanity defined. The time has now come to try a different approach to problem solving in America, devoid of whatever worked or did not work this past eight years. A Trump solution is what is needed now; at least, let Americans take him up on his promise to make America great again and peradventure if he fails, then he can be voted out; otherwise he would be commended and recommended for another four more years and that way America can begin to facedown its problems the only way America knows best - take it to it.

Cory Booker analogized how America is great and does not need being made great again? Icheoku says Senator Cory Booker should take that his message to the City of Newark where he used to be the Mayor and preach same gospel. If after reeling it out to the hundreds of thousands left holding the bag, he receives a standing ovation, then Icheoku would advise Donald Trump to endorse Hillary Clinton and forget about helping make America great again.   But unfortunately, the situation in Newark, New Jersey, as in so many other American cities, particularly inner cities, tell a different story all together from the one painted by Senator Cory Booker. This is in addition to the over 7 million homeless Americans living on the streets, who are excitedly giddy with expectation that at last a Donald Trump is coming to improve their lots. 

Among these gospellers is Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States of America, who of course enjoys the greatness that America has provided her. But how many Americans have over 75 personal assistants ministering to their every second needs? Therefore, any American as fortunately situated as the First Lady, would of course not have any problem in saying that America is great already and ask Donald Trump not to bother with bringing his Midas touch to touch America and make America great again. Icheoku would not delve into the much waters that sources said passed under the bridge before the First Lady agreed to come and give her testimonial for Crooked Hillary. As many Americans know, there has been no love lost between the two women since the very contentious 2008 Democratic primaries between Barack and Hillary. 

Then comes the speech of grandpa Bernie Sanders, whose supporters and Bern Feelers were disappointed that he surrendered to the Clinton's scorch earth machine politics. Icheoku is indeed actually amazed at the strength of Bernie, who despite his very advanced age, was able to get as far as he got, going after the Clinton's entrenched Democratic Party politics. Like Donald Trump appositely articulated, Bernie was burnt out, spent and exhausted and wanted to call it quits in order to enable him get a well deserved rest. Icheoku says it is okay, but if only Bernie got at least one out of the many things his supporters expected they would get, considering what they put s much into the campaign to travel as far as they did. 

Hillary Clinton's Wall Street speeches were not released? Hillary Clinton did not choose one of Bernie's preferred candidate for her vice presidential running mate? Hillary Clinton again slapped Bernie and his supporters on the face by immediately rehiring Debbie Wassermann Shultz, who had earlier been fired for sabotaging Bernie Sanders' campaign run? Icheoku says Bernie was completely shafted and left holding the plate and if he did not get anything now, when?  It is as good as lost and you wonder what became of all the wasted effort, manpower and resources that was thrown his way to compel a change in the manner of doing business inside the Democratic Party. 

Overall, it was an okay opening for the Democrats, admitted the email scandal that forced the exit of the erstwhile chairwoman Debbie Wassermann Shultz almost eclipsed the convention. Icheoku will reserve the judgment for the American people who will in November pass their verdict whether to continue on the current path or pivot an try new things. It does not hurt to try something novel and Donald Trump. a man with can do attitude might be what America needs at this time. Donald Trump has been right severally, calling affairs and issues including the Belgium terror strike, immigration problem and now rigged system which the latest email scandal has proved he was right. But, hey, the people feeling the Bern will speak last and they will not be heard until November, so until then the jury remains out.
