The Real Donald Trump Versus Twitter

The Real Donald Trump is angry with Twitter and other social media. Will he trump this or will he falter? I was reading an analysis about President Donald Trump’s executive order targeting social media platforms.

The Nigerian System Is Rigged Against The Lower Class

Nigeria is a country where the system favours the rich and powerful and does everything within its power to oppress the poor and keep him poor. Whenever the poor tries to come up instead of being encouraged, some useless regulation is designed to keep them down.

Sometimes when one looks at government policies, it is clear that this is the goal. It is as if a lot of people in government wake up every day and ask themselves, ‘How will we oppress and suppress the poor today’?  Continue reading “The Nigerian System Is Rigged Against The Lower Class”
