  1. Glad you all liked the program and now I will roll it out to anyone who wishes to install it.


    Every program has differences. The main difference between successful hearts and unsuccessful hearts is that successful ones have learned how to troubleshoot and resolve any errors. And no virus would be a match for the love bug as it has grand well programmed defence mechanisms.

  2. Customer Service Rep: Can you install LOVE?


    Customer: I can do that. I'm not very technical, but I think I am ready to install now. What do I do first?


    CS Rep: The first step is to open your HEART. Have you located your HEART ma'am?


    Customer: Yes I have, but there are several programs running right now. Is it okay to install while they are running?


    CS Rep: What programs are running ma'am?


    Customer: Let me see....I have PASTHURT.EXE, LOWESTEEM.EXE, GRUDGE.EXE, and RESENTMENT.COM running right now.


    CS Rep: No problem. LOVE will automatically erase PASTHURT.EXE from your current operating system. It may remain in your permanent memory, but it will no longer disrupt other programs. LOVE will eventually overwrite LOWESTEEM.EXE with a module of its own called HIGHESTEEM.EXE. However, you have to completely turn off GRUDGE.EXE and RESENTMENT.COM. Those programs prevent LOVE from being properly installed. Can you turn those off ma'am?


    Customer: I don't know how to turn them off. Can you tell me how?


    CS Rep: My pleasure. Go to your Start menu and invoke FORGIVENESS.EXE. Do this as many times as necessary until GRUDGE.EXE and RESENTMENT.COM have been completely erased.


    Customer: Okay, I'm done. LOVE has started installing itself automatically. Is that normal?


    CS Rep: Yes it is. You should receive a message that says it will reinstall for the life of your HEART. Do you see that message?


    Customer: Yes I do. Is it completely installed?


    CS Rep: Yes, but remember that you have only the base program. You need to begin connecting to other HEARTS in order to get the upgrades.


    Customer: Oops...I have an error message already. What should I do?


    CS Rep: What does the message say?


    Customer: It says "ERROR 412 - PROGRAM NOT RUN ON INTERNAL COMPONENTS." What does that mean?


    CS Rep: Don't worry ma'am, that's a common problem. It means that the LOVE program is set up to run on external HEARTS but has not yet been run on your HEART. It is one of those complicated programming things, but In non-technical terms it means you have to "LOVE" your own machine before it can "LOVE" others.


    Customer: So what should I do?


    CS Rep: Can you find the directory called "SELF-ACCEPTANCE"?


    Customer: Yes, I have it.


    CS Rep: Excellent, you are getting good at this.


    Customer: Thank you.


    CS Rep: You're welcome. Click on the following files and then copy them to the "MYHEART" directory: FORGIVESELF.DOC, SELFESTEEM.TXT, REALIZEWORTH.TXT, and GOODNESS.DOC. The system will overwrite any conflicting files and begin patching any faulty programming. Also, you need to delete SELFCRITIC.EXE from all directories, and then empty your recycle bin afterwards to make sure it is completely gone and never comes back.


    Customer: Got it. Hey! My HEART is filling up with really neat files. SMILE.MPG is playing on my monitor right now and it shows that WARMTH.COM, PEACE.EXE, and CONTENTMENT.COM are copying themselves all over my HEART!


    CS Rep: Then LOVE is installed and running. You should be able to handle it from here. LOVE is freeware. Be sure to give it and its various modules to everybody you meet.

  3. Sometimes, we like to live in the past. Regretting a past mistake. We will play it over and over in our mind, what we should have done, could have done or would have done. But it’s no use thinking the past can be the present as everything isn’t the same as the past. For example no two dates or loves can be the same. No individuals would have the same characteristic as that of the past. Everything new that happens obviously may bare a slight resemblance to the past but would not necessarily be the same. So when you say you live in the past when asked about it isn’t necessarily living in the past but rather thoughts of the past which don’t last long. One thing for sure is that the past can hold you back or be used as a milestone of what you want or not want the future to be. Good memories will obviously be held with you sometimes with such passion that you keep rewinding and comparing everything with it. Bad pasts can haunt the future and may wreck your life for good as you keep thinking of what is to happen to you would more less be the same hence always judging the future to be the past. This obviously will only hinder you and weigh you down. Don't hold on to the past, you can't change it and always look to live for today and tomorrow and not in the past. You are still not what you should be and should focus all your energies on living for the future. Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.

  4. Culture and religion shouldn’t be put on the same mantle as some of you have already done. We identify with both but they are not the same. As Somalis we tend to throw what we term as our culture and embrace what we think is right depending on each individual. We Somalis do have a culture that is generally Islamic in nature but at the same time isn’t as the two differ in customs and values.

    A case in one is what we call qabil. All over the world you would find a lot of Somali folks totally behind qabil which they practice with such penuche. It’s perfected and it’s used for all sorts of things... i.e. marriage, relationships and a form of identity and history. This too is similar in away with Islam which advocates for cultural diversity though there is a difference in approach. Some of the practices of Somalis in this aspect are in themselves unislamic.

    The younger generations are usually enticed by the different cultures and environments they live in. In fact many have no idea what the customs and cultures of Somalis are and would say what is that if asked.


    “ “O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.†(Glorious Qur’an 49: 13).

    This verse from the Qur’an deals with issues of major importance. One of these is, of course, that God created us ‘different’, a point which is further stressed in the chapter of al-Rum (the Romans) in the Glorious Qur’an: “And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of your languages and colours. Lo! Herein indeed are portents for men of knowledge.†(22)

    The other side of God’s wisdom to create us is difference, which is revealed in his call to mankind to ‘know one another’. ‘Dialogue’ is the gateway to knowing one another. That is why Islam encourages dialogue in the best way and lays down the basis for this kind of dialogue considering it as part of Islamic faith.

    The call to the people of the world ‘to know one another’ is also of most importance because it is nothing less than an invitation to dialogue on the collective level (a concept that is so badly missing in today’s world where individualism seems to overwhelm human relations). Dialogue (which could also be termed ‘communication’) is given high esteem in Islam; it is actually tantamount to a wisdom which--if understood and applied properly--could well serve as a stepping stone for the promotion of a ‘new world order’, which all men of good will are dreaming of today.


    As Somalis the above can be debated is communicating is one of the most difficult things that are apparent in out community and wisdom rarely comes into play.

  5. If it is discriminative as you suggest then perhaps you can suggest what we can do to correct it. As you may or may not know, the Somali history is somehow distorted and not very accurate and all we are doing is to try and find whats wrong with it. So rather than blame, you should correct any wrongs.


    Im sure what you said makes sense too.

  6. Its been known along time that Ethiopians would abuse Somalis more than even their own. Its always good to do alittle research before advocating for an Ethiopian Occupation that wont go away without a fight just like Eritrea. If they can abuse and rape their own nationalities under the guise of keeping the peace. Think of what they might do once a few somalis kill some Ethiopian troopers!

  7. My golly gumdrop goodness...It takes two to pertake in asin ....what is this wadaad saying to get the reactions and feed back that he has that are supposedly PRIVATE! Does he know airing out anything that is private is xaraam. Does he know the term TRUST! Wasnt he so charming that he managed to get the so called pictures he so easily wants to call sick or rotten.


    Common now What is he doing in MSN in the first place? I got the feeling that this is a supposedly reported post that isnt a reported one smile.gif

  8. You can let the setbacks and disappointments get you down. Or you can get busy filling your efforts with enthusiasm and positive determination. Ralp Marston.



    Lifes what you make it....I sure make it bearable and tussle with ways to make everyday/night as bearable and happy as possible.....Shaqsii

  9. Isn’t this one of those articles where Somali males are trampled on? Common now why would anyone bring out his or her laundry on here rather than dealing with it internally. It should be a family matter and should be dealt with in a manner that’s appropriate rather than just post something online and say someone is stalking me. How the hell do we know this a fabricated story in the first place? I could easily write one that says a certain heeblayo is beating on me or stalking me too. So lets not go way too far here and look at this with a little bit of chilli in it.

  10. A well researched article plus he forgot to mention that all these neighbouring countries have a lot to lose with a united Somalia. Kenya would have to reckon with trying to keep its Somali population under the constant eye of its soldiers while Ethiopia does the same. It goes without saying that Somalis downfall lies at the heart of what’s happening now which is the hard fought undemocratic mobilisation of neighbouring troops by the men elected without even thinking of the consequences which have in a nutshell been mentioned in the above article.


    If you recall a few years ago, the ex president of Kenya said that a weak Somalia would be in the interest of Kenya as a strong Somalia can be to detriment of Kenya's government as a whole. The same applies to Ethiopia too.


    Btw Libax - thanks bro.....you sure took a whole loader weight off ma shoulders.. ;)

  11. I believe what happened in Nairobi can only be good. Especially when you think of people in developed countries like Italy, Japan and Russia can exchange blows too. So we are not as bad as a lot of people here think. Besides rather than killing each other in the streets why not practice a bit of kungfu with chairs instead. Personally I think this is a good sign and that no one would take parliamentarians for granted as they used to be. Somalis have come along way and now the only thing left is to introduce the YOGA so they can calm down a little.

  12. Will Duco in an ideal situation, I would 99% agree with you but brother when a wrong is done it has to be talked about or corrected and that’s the only way forward. Something like the South African peace reconciliation to calm the people down and to heal.


    The majority of Somali politicians today are mostly former Siad Barre ministers who looted and destroyed the country and therefore lack legitimacy or new warlords who have no respect for country and human rights. What we need are young, educated, untainted and visionary politicians. Apparently there is no single high profile politician in Somalia who can meet the needs and aspirations of Somalis as a whole. The young need to get rid of these dinosaurs so we can have a major political change within the Somali state. This in turn should guarantee a new Somalia on par with the world states.


    Rahima and Msword I wouldn’t necessarily agree with you as blind support and opting for the devil you know could be the end of what is right and honourable. Looking at what has happened over in Nairobi, we shouldn’t expect a lot to come out of it especially with qabiil loyalists and believers who bought power for their clans rather the national interest and peaceful reconciliation of this fragmented country.


    We should also look at foreign forces not only as a threat to our national sovereignty but a threat to the national healthy of the population who could possibly be hit by AIDS and other strange diseases. It also makes the Somalis as a whole a laughing stoke and people who can never achieve any form of consensus without the barrel of a gun. I suppose in its right that we cant seem to achieve what other humans are capable of in away but the least we can do is try harder to do it ourselves rather than call for an IGAD ARMY who are already calling for a half a billion dollars for 8 months which may turn into hell.


    I think it will rather take a collective determination and responsibility among the Somali people to insure that we move forward and build our country.`


    Now is the time for real changes rather than cosmetic superficial changes.


    Now is the time to expose the blood-thirsty, devious agendas of some criminals in power.


    Now is the time to denounce the brutality of the state organized goons/militia supervised by warlords/ministers.


    Now is the time to begin mass action against vigilante forces and troops in the country.


    Now is the time to defend human rights and the rights of every Somali individual.


    Now is the time to demand justice and peace for all the families destroyed by these bandits.


    Now is the time to fight against the politicisation of Clan differences.


    Now is the time for united, collective democratic and consistent campaigns for peace and unity.


    Now is the time to stand and up and be counted.


    Now is the time to get rid of the culture of blind support, silence and fear.

  13. "Warlords are not modernizers with a new political order in mind; rather, they are an opportunistic class of men who rise in a country previously ruled by a government that lost legitimacy and a disciplined army."

    We Somalis should view ALL warlords, as men who have collective responsibility for Somalia’s destruction, and the cold-blooded murder of thousands of her citizens.


    Unlike the past where there were no archives for the heinous crimes committed in Somali, today we should make sure we use technology to Document the information on all crimes against humanity committed in the Somali territory while the memory of such crimes is still fresh in the minds of the victims and witnesses. This in turn would be used against them at some stage or other and be brought to justice. We should preserve and safe guard such information until such a time as either the international community or the Somali State (if at all) is in a position to persecute such criminals. These actions are moral (and legal?) obligation on all humanity and will save lives and make our country safer knowing that anyone could be brought to justice.


    I suppose as OGirl put it you need to be free to express yourself without any duress. Many warlords themselves have the blessings of many of their people however; all we can do is basically educate those blind followers who don’t even get the desired support for their constant blind support. Many in both Diaspora and back home do spend three quarters of their time drumming support collecting money and ofcouse make use of the internet to conceive and convince many of us that they are surely the right people to bring peace to a ravaged with a majority or poor and uneducated mars who just need good leaders. The fact is that, as long as Somali public and private properties confiscated by warlords in Somalia are used for personal interests, Somalia will remain an endangered State.


    Some parts of south Somalia are right now held at ransom and are reminiscent of parts of South America where there are no go cities used for illicit drug trafficking. It is said that warlords use their agents of international drug traffickers to transport illicit drugs such as heroine from Balidoogle airport nearby Mogadishu City to various transit points, according to some sources in Mogadishu. Consequently, abuse of narcotic drugs by children and youths in Mogadishu City is rapidly increasing, and it has strongly fuelled the brutal civil war in the city. It is a business that is fiercely sustained by Mogadishu institutions and warlords.


    Propagandizing, hate speech, fears and family memories of trauma, warlords offering up psychic relief through the language of toxic and exclusionary clannish – these speech acts are carried out within discourses of imagined communities with unimaginable consequences. Warlords deployed discourse naturalizing clan identity, war, and the nation-state, and the violent struggle among clan groups for control of first their immediate occupied territories then the state. But if some intellectuals resisted or reflected on these events, others invented them with such panache as seen lately the different forums. Clans enmeshed in victimization narratives, victimization narratives passed from one generation to the next, real and recent history experiences of trauma and injury, the manipulation of emotional vulnerabilities under conditions of economic and political crisis, the provocation of personalities more inclined toward intolerant and stereotypical views of otherness, myths of clan statehood, the mobilization of criminal and even psychopathic elements, young irregular sons drugged and used as pones, militias, outsiders committing phantom acts of violence to simulate ‘clanic conflict,’ warlords and community leaders planning psychological strategies.


    We should get together and fight these folks and we should never ever give them the qualified support that they somehow got used to. They are criminals and should always be treated with contempt. There may be peace without social justice, but it will be short-lived. Clan violence today does not require the mobilization of every individual “in†a state or clan group, nor even a majority. Given the destructiveness of weapons, the accessibility of technology that can be used destructively (Net) and the unconventional ways technology can be used destructively, the willingness to attack civilians, and the level of social and economic deprivation in Somalia today, it does not even require more than a handful of co-conspirators in Mogadishu or Nairobi to ignite it.



    Qorshel all I can say is -not in a million years bro. don’t want to have that on my conscience.


    Ngonge As you said, it is a conundrum that baffles even the smartest of the us and he summed it up by saying it is a

    “deadly lizard and these “warlords†are merely tails, which no matter how many times you amputate, new tails will spring up and the wheel of destruction will keep on turning..â€

    To acertain extent yes but I’m not so sure saxiib if your total withdrawal of believe from anything good ever coming out of the Somali society is the right cause. It would seem to me like if you had a patient who had cancer and possibly diagnosed by one specialist that would be enough for you to condemn that patient as irrevocably ill and hence the only way out is death. I would think you would opt for a second opinion and maybe third depending on your commitment to doing all you can. We do know the fact that we have one of the most complex societies in this world and the fabric of it all is deeply rooted in clan hence the never ending story of tails that keep germinating like plants.


    I wouldn’t hold all Somalis to be part and parcel of that boat/lizards that warlords and their tails connected to lizards ride. I certainly would give the benefit of the doubt to many out there who are working tirelessly on a daily basis to educate and at least do their bit in as far as any reconciliation is concerned. We are people living in communities that maintain attachments defined in ethnic terms as, less advanced, more primitive, and “clanic,†hence, more likely to be motivated by more emotional than rational forces however, everything that doesn’t work of function, there are always solutions which may either be hard or simple depending on how one looks at it.


    As one Somali put it “it is high time these honchos be brought to justice.

  14. Does the past not bother us or are we blind to what is going on under our very noses? Do we have any conscience or just as heartless as the very leaders that are causing more turmoil amongst the brothers and sisters that should have taken arms and united against all the "baddies". Now why cant we just get rid of all these dinosaurs and try to insert new blood in the political sphere where we are hell bent on fighting over the same war criminals that have murdered, plundered and totally looted the beautiful country that was once Jewel of Africa.


    Does the proverb “A leopard never changes its spots mean anything to anyone?


    To other communities supporting war criminals is unthinkable.


    As the saying goes..


    "A wise man is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool throws off restraint and is careless."

  15. If men didnt exist, would make ups exist? Would women really care how they looked if it wasnt for mens appreciation? Who would care about what someone thought of them in certain ways? Do you think we would have plastic surgery if it wasnt for beauty enhancement and love to fit in into certain criterias of life and loves?


    I care about presentation of anything even my food. And certainly beauty tho be it gross could be what someone sees and therefore if we conclude that beauty can be anything to anyone would we be so wrong? After all what one sees in someone wouldnt possibly be what another sees.

  16. Languages tend to play tricks on many here. The word can mean what one intends them to mean depending on what they want to portray and how they want to interpret. We are Somalis and we should be allowed to say what we think is right to signify what we think is aright term. After all everyday new words are created by human beings and it wouldnt be prudent for us to just be followers of creators. We should be allowed to coin our own words and meanings regardless of what is written in papers and dictionaries.

  17. I would say plenty of fish in the sea. Question for the girl is .....Why didnt you stick to him like glue when you had his ears n heart? A good thing never knocks on your door more than twice I would n the second time is probably going for the substitute.


    When you find that Jewel that you have been looking for all ya life, dont take it for granted and do not take anyone lightly as the wind of good times can change to nightmares as you may have noticed. So try to talk to him if he isnt involved with someone else. However, if he is already gone with someone who appreciates him then I would say get on ya bike and start riding the other way and never look behind.
