One would have thought that in the 21st Century, we will no more be reenacting the Athenian type of democracy where there was free speech to praise the rulers and no free speech to criticize them. Americans pretend that they have free speech, but they have none. I don't know a single teacher in Africa who has been disciplined for voicing his/her opinion to a student or in class. Their opinions are usually punished if they are against the president. That is where America is different and should uphold her status as an avant-garde to democracy. Where then does the light shine when the lighthouse itself is dark? Behold a beacon of hypocrisy. Not a single teacher in Asia or Latin America has been disciplined for voicing his/her opinions to students. You only hear that in America: the supposed land of the free, whatever that means.
What is really wrong with the man giving his opinion about the presidency of the first black president in America, even if it is negative?

Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). "It is not how well you know a person; it is how well you treat them that they will live longer and happier with you." Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).
