There’s been a love-hate relationship between public transport drivers and the Ghanaian populace for a long time dating from late 60s and early 70s till now. For example, when the Busia government introduced the 1969 Alien Expulsion Act that forced Lebanese and Syrian spare parts dealers and transport owners to surrender their businesses to the government, it resulted in the shortage of spare parts in Ghana. This situation forced local drivers to creatively come up with ways to service their cars and keep them running on the road. This actions by drivers made passengers alarmed by the dangerous driver practices on the road and the incessant increase in transportation fares. “The result was a vilification of drivers as active participants in a culture of corruption that both transgressed the norms of economic morality and disrespected and disobeyed the law.” Drivers however believe the public erroneously blame them for most of the transportation problems which are not under their jurisdiction. They think people don’t respect their profession, and they demand that passengers respect. Hence the the inscription “Respect My Office” embossed in this Trotro.

Inside The Black Vault: The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed Paperback – April 8, 2019 by Jr., John, Greenewald (Author)
The evidence in this book may not ultimately give you the “smoking gun” you are looking for on your journey, but I guarantee it will give you a box of bullets when you find it.
In 1996, John Greenewald, Jr. began researching the secret inner workings of the U.S. Government at the age of fifteen. He targeted such agencies as the CIA, FBI, Pentagon, Air Force, Army, Navy, NSA, DIA, and countless others.
Greenewald utilized the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to gain access to more than two million pages of documents. This archive includes information relating to UFOs, the JFK Assassination, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, and top secret aircraft. He took the millions of pages, and over the course of more than two decades, has built an archive known around the world, as The Black Vault.
Inside The Black Vault: The Government’s UFO Secrets Revealed takes you on a journey within the secret world of unidentified aerial phenomenon that has plagued the military since at least the 1940s. Declassified records prove that the UFO topic is one of the most highly classified and most elusive subjects the U.S. Government has ever dealt with. Each chapter explores various agencies and their documents, and Greenewald breaks down the meaning of why some of the most important documents are relevant to proving a massive cover-up.
Along with declassified documents, Greenewald outlines the struggle it took him to get them. No other topic has proven so difficult, in more than 8,000 FOIA requests that he has filed. He explores why that might be and meets skeptics and debunkers head on, outlining why some of their more prominent rebuttals for it all cannot be true.
Those libertarian/libertarian-light thinkers are everywhere you look. People who say ‘the government is evil and needs to be eliminated everywhere it can be’ appear on Fox and OANN. They even get invited on MSNBC and CNN. The folks at the NRA are invited everywhere. Even listening to NPR, you’re exposed to people from the Cato Institue and Reason magazine. Ronald Reagan is famous for his nine most frightening words. Steve Bannon of Breitbart worked in the White House. Alex Jones had Trump on Info Wars. These anti-government types are mainstream and have a soapbox that is legitimized constantly.
Yet, people who want to fix the government and make an honest effort to end government corruption — to tilt the balance in favor of working people —are ignored. They’re labeled as crazy. They’re called extremists. They’re smeared as anti-semites. They aren’t allowed onto the networks to defend their positions, but only to be ridiculed and be delegitimized. The so-called-left wing network of MSNBC has hosts steeped in the neo-liberal Washington bubble and are caricatures of true leftists.
When global warming is discussed they have on a scientist and a right wing lobbist. When medicare for all is discussed, they have on two people who think the policy is untenable. When college for all is brought up every network asks, “how are you going to pay for it?” When a new war is discussed, every network praises the idea.
It’s almost as if the working class’s only power is in electing a government that represents their interests and the oligarchy that the runs the world with money, wants to convince working people that government is inherently evil, untrustworthy and needs to be eliminated… almost.

90% blahal tax rate
Massive government investment in national infastructure
New forms of energy production influencing all of popular culture
The entire country glued to the tv as large publicly run scientific projects make international headlines
Local governments building cutting edge housing to replace slums
Strong anti-trust laws
I think you’ll find austerity created by the Tory government is to blame. Every problem in the country can be linked back to misuse and mishandling of money and the corruption of the government and patheticness of the older generations.
Lack of discipline = parents working two jobs instead of looking after the kids because they can’t afford to live on one wage alone.
Lack of police = police and emergency service cuts from the Gov.
Teachers prevented from chastising = not really a thing - more to do with the fact there are no teachers and the ones we have have to work in a very high pressured environment.
Disrespectful youth = look at the environment they’ve been brought up in.
When the country started to feel the effects of austerity and people started to suffer, UKIP saw their chance and blamed immigration and the EU; and people were so fed up of not being able to blame the government and hold them accountable that they held immigrants, the youth and any fucker else they could find responsible. Look at the environment in the UK. No public services to do their jobs and enforce the laws. Parliament is like a god damn nursery. “He said this” “She said that” “They don’t like my deal” “Vote for me as class rep”
It’s all a sad joke. Stop blaming the youth. We didn’t vote for Brexit. We didn’t create austerity. We aren’t all criminals. We haven’t polluted the planet beyond help. We haven’t filled the oceans with plastic. We haven’t raised kids to be arseholes. We haven’t cut public services. We haven’t fired all the teachers. We haven’t corrupted and destroyed THE EDUCATION SYSTEM, THE NHS OR THE FUCKING COUNTRY.
We grew up in either the recession or austerity. We grew up poor and struggling. We grew up with just each other - no government or cosy employer to bail us out of anything. We grew up sharing and treating others with respect.
So, this photo got one thing right, something needs to change in Britain. But it’s not the younger generation. Fuck things like this shared around by gullible old fucking idiots.
Catch me running for CA governor 💁🏽♀️
Peacefully, they have reached the line at the edge of life.
At the end, they follow light; unending word of ‘Well’.
Now, there he found himself doing everything for everything.
Detail of tiling and patterns composing for the memory lane.
Those in poverty tries very hard to not romanticize it.
But most of those who are in capable are not making anything.
By means of anything is nothing but despise and regret.
Hopefully can be better anytime soon now.
One thing that the child could have ever spit of,
“They never obligated to it but having capabilities is more than enough”.
Misuse of obligation, privilege and satisfaction would mend all humanity.
Loosing control of it is like a yeast that has been exposed in air.
Some are asking why people are wasting their time for a protest;
but honestly, they are privilege enough not to see the real world.
They want to voice out on the things people should be focusing more of.
Sadly, we are not in control of anyone but at least we are trying.

Being “exonerated” by an AG you appointed, after firing the last for implying he would implicate you in court, not even days after personally wining and dining him at your personal resort is a prime example of how there’s 2 justice systems in our country. One for poor people and one for the wealthy with political influence, it’s disgusting, it’s unjust, and what’s worse it’s not even a secret, and yet people refuse to do a thing.
Episode 237: ‘The Job of the Press Secretary is to Lie for the President’ w/ Marc Clair
They talk about current events but focus on George W Bush’s press secretary, Ari Fleischer’s, recent Tweets in which he sought to make the case that they didn’t lie the U.S. into Iraq War 2, but that it was only a “mistake.”
