'Obamarama': Barack Obama Road

After a hiatus, and in time for Friday, Obamarama is back, thanks to this image I fished out of my cell phone. I shot this in Mombasa back in April and forgot about it.


Yes, that's Barack Obama Road, printed in stencil.

The worse thing that is happening to the USA is Africa.All that USA dollars send as charity is helping China sell goods to the africans.The money helps China not the USA or Africa.Anybody (Bono,Oprah,Brad Pitt,Jolie) that think that USA charity dollars help africans is very very wrong.The africans are still in poverty and will continue to be until their dictators and seudo-democratic Presidents decide to leave the $ in Africa instead that in Swiss bank Accounts and properties in the French Riviera.Stop the african charity train now and let China send them their Huans.


In Ghana they printed a myriad of styles of Obama cloth for his visit. Now you can see whole families dressed in perfectly tailored matching Obama outfits!

I'll have to try and snap a few to send to you!!

The failures and reverses which await men - and one after another sadden the brow of youth - add a dignity to the prospect of human life, which no Arcadian success would do.
