Dear reader, I don’t know who is me yet, I have to discover myself again. A hole needs filling in my wisdom tooth. Yesterday was a painful memory, today is dark and there is no a promising tomorrow. But anyhow, as a Somalilanders, we have no other choice, either we live and learn together as brothers, or perish together as fools. Dear reader, I am not a member of any organized political party but I am a Somalilander and a democrat. Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before. As Somalilanders, our mission in life is not merely to survive but to thrive ; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor and some style. The purpose of Art is washing the dust of daily life off our soul. But we are not willing to die several times. I have great bad memories and scary nightmares of the late vampire that will stay with me long my life. Time and memory are true artists; they remold reality to the heart’s desire. Mr. President, democracy must be build through open societies that share information. When there is information sharing, there is enlightenment. When there is debate, there are solutions. When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse of power, there is corruption, there is subjugation and indignation. During the Silanyo Regime the Government was so bloated and infested with fraud, deceit, corruption and abuse of power. Uninterrupted history of thievery, bigotry and crooked politicians have betrayed the working class. Pocketing the profit and every penny of the national budget and have treated us like sheep. Sir, from the Roman Empire to the Soviet Union, nations do not fail due to external threats but because of internal weakness. Corruption and failure to manifest the values and ideals they espouse were the main causes. Mr. President, corruption is worse than prostitution. The later may endanger the morals of an individual, the former invariable endangers the morals of the entire country. The cancer that demands our urgent attention is corruption and the Mother – In – Law from Hell ( Tribalism ). Anyone in a position of power is either corrupt or assumed to be corrupt. If we want to survive we must weed out corruption by building strong system of justice that the people can trust. There are also three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the healthy father, the healthy mother and the healthy teacher.
So fighting corruption is not just good Governance, but it is Jihad, Self – Defense and Patriotism. The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers. Leaders who empower others. A successful leader is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.
Mr. President, Bill Gates said, when stop chasing the wrong things; you give the right things to catch you. The universe does not give you what you ask for with your thoughts; it gives what you demand with your actions. Imam Ghazali said, declare your Jihad on thirteen enemies that you can’t see. They are, egoism, arrogance, conceit, selfishness, greed, lust, intolerance, anger, lying, cheating, gossiping and slandering. Remember ! Selfish – desires make slaves out of kings and patience and Self – Satisfaction makes kings out of slaves. Do not allow your heart to take pleasure with the praise of people, nor be saddened by their condemnation. To get what you love, you must first be patient with what you hate. Close the prison doors and open the school doors. Because one book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change Somaliland. Mr. President, Failure is a great teacher, and I think when you make mistakes and you recover from them. You treat them as valuable learning experiences. In life there is always failure, and there is always disappointments and loss. But the secret behind it is to learn something from those mistakes, and somebody must held responsible and punishable for the mistakes that has been done. So that none of those holes and vacuums happen again. It is not fun if you always bang your head against a Brick – Wall all the time, as we do always. Simply because, in youth we learn; and in old – age we understand. We must prepare for the unknown and expect the unexpected, by studying how others in the past have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable. Our own False Doctor, Mr. Sacad Ali Shire, you are a Plant – Weed that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows. You did more harm than good to Somaliland. I think your education background is from the Evil – Empire in Mogadishu where patriotism and nationalism are dirty fellow which should be thrown out of doors. I assume you and the previous Minister of Foreign Affairs of Somaliland Mr. Maqaam Sare, who is nowadays stationed in Mogadishu are from the same school. You both have loaded the country with debt and doubts.
Dear reader, if you listen to the press – conference related to their fake and deceptive company that bears his name and the name of that Spoiled – Child called Basha Morgan. You will continue laughing up to death, until milk comes out of your nose. The tongue is small but few can hold it. The function of education is to teach us to think intensively and critically. Education plus strong personality and amiable character can be fruitful combination; and can be the wick in which liquid fuel is drawn to flame and ignite the candle of education. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. But education without personality is totally useless and end up in vain. Dear reader, Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. An investment in knowledge to a person with strong personality pays the best interest. Dr. False, you and your shadow Mr. Maqaam Sare are cheap brokers that are betraying the whole nation. Dear reader, the best Jihad is to say the word of justice in front of an oppressor and corrupt ruler, and say it on his face. During my life span I made decisions that I regret, but I keep it up to now in my memory as a reference. When you are an infant, you don’t learn walking by following rules. You learn walking by doing and by falling over. That is why I hate studying but I love learning. Learning is more beautiful. That is why I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship. I told my thirteen years old son, Ismail; not to worry about his grades at school, but to enjoy learning. Because Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg didn’t finish college.
Dear reader, Sheikh Google is my best friend as well as my worst enemy. It is fabulous for research, but then it makes you addictive. It teaches you, to put all the play and learning into childhood, all the work into middle age and all the regrets into old age. Then at last, the Tombstone will be your Diploma. Also I have learned a lot from listening. A single conversation across the table with a wise man like Mr. M. White is better than ten years mere study of books. I learned long ago, never to wrestle with the pigs. Especially African ones. Because you get dirty, and besides that, the pigs likes it, likes you to end in that way. Dr. False, you and your Gang Mafia shouldn’t go through life with a Catcher’s Mitt on both hands.
For the love of God, you were supposed to throw something back to those poor peasants that have placed their destiny in your hands. Dear reader, Jerks are not heartbreakers only; they are fools with good taste. Mr. False Doctor, Feel ashamed . You are not a Billiard – Table. You made the dish angry. Dear reader, the hardest job assignment for Somalilanders today, is learning nationalism without seeing a nationalist politician; to learn honesty without seeing an honest leader. Dr.False, the lay man on the street whom you consider him as ignorant and insignificant is the one who had learned bliss from your grief and knowledge from your gloom. Because of his Evil – Eye, that is why your Instant – Cash – Machine did not recognize your Pin – Code. That is why your personal account is in red ink. Dear reader, anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or at eighty. And anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. I am most proud of the blessings Allah has bestowed upon me, in my life. He has given me the patience and the vision to see truly that you can fall down, but you still could get back up again and stand up on your feet. Hopefully, I will benefit from my previous mistakes and have the opportunity to strengthen and improve the next thing I do. Dr. False, as a lettered man and a believer in Islam, the second life in heaven can be glorious; if you practice now, how to live in total harmony with Allah. Only arrogant fools like you who adorn money and gold,

only thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning. Continued on next Week
Mr. President, in life there is always failure and there is always loss and disappointments. But the secret behind it is to learn something from the loss, and somebody must held responsible and punishable for the crime. So that none of those holes and vacuums happen again. Otherwise, we are a counterpart and we are all sailing on the same boat with those corrupt jerks. Mr. President, it is very sad to hear that some Mafia Gangs were hoarding and wasting millions of dollars, of the donor’s and Tax – Payer’s money for more than thirteen years. At the same time they were intentionally feeding us with the wrong assumption and false information concerning the Water – Project of Xunbo Weyne. Until Honorable Suleiman Yusuf Ali Gore announced the Bombshell. This is an eye witness that the Shia of the East and the Wahabist in the West are more patriot and more honest to their country, than the Sunni in the Centre.
Dear reader, History repeats itself; and that is what the deceased Cali Garad Jamac and Xaji Ibrahim Noor did in 1960. It is more disgrace and disgusting that up to now, no one is accountable for this horrible mischief and jeopardy. That is shame and a question crying for an answer.
Mr. President, it is good to remind you that in your campaign – Trailer speech, you have promised that in the future, you won’t imprison a delinquent boy for years; for stealing a mobile phone. While big politicians run away with stealing millions of dollars that this poor and helpless country is badly in need of. Life is not fun when you always are banging your head against a Brick – Wall, from now and then. Remember ! In youth we learn; and in old age we understand. Mr. President, prepare for the unknown by studying how others in the past, have coped with the unforeseeable and the unpredictable. Dr. False, you are a Plant – Weed that has mastered every survival skills; except for learning how to grow in rows. But we are aware that you are smart enough to make the trees pregnant. Dear reader, Somaliland is full of men of educated derelicts who shamefully failed to fulfill their duty obligations, like our own False Doctor, the Minister Of Foreign Affairs. Our False Doctor, please note that who has studied but does not think, is lost. Who thinks but does not learn is in great danger. Remember ! Learning and innovation go hand in hand. But the arrogance of success’s disadvantage is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow. But that would be at ones peril of his life and career. Mr. False Doctor, hell with your Fluid Intelligence. Mr. President, if you can’t let the bully jerks see the light, let them feel the heat. Because they have no hearts and their conscious is dead. Mr. President, in the past, leadership meant muscles; but today means getting along with people. When you stop chasing the wrong things, like muzzling the freedom of speech; you give the right things a chance to catch you. Good leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. It is not about the next election, it is about the next generation.
Dr.False, you are assigned to better the lives of others; not an opportunity to satisfy your personal greed and lust. My Poor Doctor, if you use your mind to study reality, you won’t understand either your mind or reality. If you study reality without using your mind, you will understand both easily.
Dr. False, don’t limit your child to your own learning; because he was born in another different time.
Self Claimed Presidents: My personal view is that your action is a high treason, an insult to Somaliland and it is a collaboration with the enemy. Simply because you can oppose the political agenda of Musa Bihi but you can’t oppose the will and the determination of the whole nation. You are acting like the International Community who advocate the freedom of a sixteen years old girl against the custody of her parent; while ignoring the Self – Determination and will of a whole nation, called Somaliland. It is an insult to the whole Nation. They are showing their selfishness and dictatorship image. Simply they love themselves more than anything else. They are building castles on the air. Anyhow we are all born mad. And some remain so. Guys, Somaliland needs no editing. Thank you in advance.
Mr. False Doctor, thank you for being totally ugly.
Yusuf Deyr, Hargeisa, Somaliland.
