COMMENT ANALYSIS on Fools Gold Video … Micheal

I am a scam artist and I am not proud of it period.

However lets call a spade a spade, Dear Anas Aremeya Anas enjoy your 25 min of fame courtesy of Al Jazeera, you want to have a foot hold on real investigative journalism I’ll tell you where to start, start with the system that allows the multimillion $$ mining industries to mine all they want and give 10-15% of the proceeds to your Dear country,…..

Investigate how the villages where billions of $$ worth of precious metals are being dug out, pollute the water bodies, do not build any hospitals nor and good roads dusty roads where expats drive 100kmph villagers suffering from respiratory diseases  killing the very poor citizens who own the land only to be called illegal miners for mining their forefathers land, start by investigating how those multimillion $$ companies shortchange the Govt and declare whatever they care to.

Investigate the land agreements if they are fair.

Investigate how we are being shackled by mental slavery,how we are being denied quality education which would take those potential scam artists into good jobs and out of fraudulent activities.

Investigate why we brought our own brother to the white men as slaves from the hinterlands and sold them for rum and clothing which we were already having.

Investigate why we have the cocoa and we cannot process it here if we do we are slapped with high duty taxes while bringing them into those developed countries that don’t have cocoa, 1000$ for a ton of cocoa have you ever farmed a cocoa farm.

International trade is worth $10 million a minute but poor countries only account for 0.4% of this trade. According to UN estimates developing countries lose $1.3bn every day due to unfair trade rules.

Please investigate why our people are suffering from planned and articulated mental and pressurized attacks from the developed countries please investigate why IMF charges billions of $$ on minimal amount loaned African nations.

Please Investigate why we are forced to pay increased tariffs on electricity before a loan is granted us from IMF.
