Joe McCarthy in the 1950s.
AFRICANGLOBE - President Barack Obama capped his eight years in office with a vacuous and hypocritical farewell address Tuesday night delivered at the McCormick Place convention center in downtown Chicago.

AFRICANGLOBE - Entrepreneurship does take a toll on your social life. You are always focused on the business, thinking about work, even when you’ve taken time off to unwind… You need to be passionate about what you are doing.

AFRICANGLOBE - If you live long enough, one of your friends, one of your supporters, one of your followers or one of your loved ones will betray and deny you! Well, a man that could become the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, has been accused of exhibiting many Judas-like qualities.

AFRICANGLOBE - Most news reports have always been fake, or at least, lacking in factual content. The idiotic idea that “fake news” just began with Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Donald Trump is laughable. It is easy to fake news stories in the United States because Americans love less information. They want their news in bits. They prefer the sound bite over the documentary. They enjoy news that is quick, fast and easy and hate to have to read more than a paragraph, news they can listen to for only a minute or two and broadcast news that lasts shorter than the Viagra commercials that follow it!
