For the time being, Obama is still the most powerful person on Earth. Once he leaves office, he will just be another guy who has to work for a living by writing memoirs for millions of dollars and raking the moolah from speaking engagements.
And it looks like Amrika will elect either the first woman President or a stupid racist jerk. They have never had a woman in the White House but they have had quite a few stupid jerks living there.
But who is the most powerful person in Nepal? No, it's not our Prime Monster Oli or our Madame President. Oli is busy trying to figure out how many days he has left to live in Baluwatar.
During his free time, he only thinks about how to connect gas pipe lines to each household in the country or how to harness wind power to end load shedding once and for all.
Yes, our corrupt netas only think big because that's where they can make some dough. They are not interested in rebuilding the homes destroyed by the earthquake because they are still figuring out how to share the aid amongst themselves. They are not interested to hold local elections because they are happy with the all-party mechanism sharing the development budget amongst themselves.
Our Madame President is the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Nepal Army. I think it would be great if she donned a military uniform and made herself a five-star General. She seems to be busy cutting ribbons here and there.
I think it would be better if she was also interested in how our Defense Minister, Bhim Rawan is busy wasting our tax-payers money by using the army helicopter for personal visits across the country.
I think it’s about time our politicians stopped using army helicopters for their personal use. The Prime Minister's Office should buy at least six helicopters for the use of our corrupt politicians. Oli should be allowed to make millions of rupees in commission as he leaves Baluwatar.
Our army helicopters should be used for natural disasters, and if our Madame President is bored then she can take one to Nagarkot or Pokhara for some R&R.
I guess our Confused Ignorant Arrogant A$$****s (CIAA) do not look into such matters because they don't seem to be interested in investigating abuse of authority but rather going after low-level civil servants and those who seem to have protested against the appointment of our Superman Lokman.
It has been ten years now since Gyanu Uncle folded his cards and had then reinstated the House of Representatives. Those who were top civil servants then and who had worked hard to suppress the people's movement are still in top positions in the government.
We have a new APF chief now. The man has been accused of playing his part in suppressing the people's movement then. It was Gyanu Uncle then who called the shots. Today, we have our mini-Maharajas who are having all the fun.
Don't be surprised if our new APF chief uses his experience from ten years ago to suppress the Madhesi movement. After all, our security personnel have greater skills in booting and, if not, shooting at the protesters.
Lokman used to be our Chief Secretary when Gyanu Uncle was at Narayanhiti. How come our buffoons could not find another honest person to head the CIAA and had to settle for the same old corrupt civil servant from the previous regime?
And Lokman thinks going after Kanak will solve all the corruption problems in this land. Kanak is not a politician. He happens to be the chairperson of Sajha Yatayat and our incompetent government owns 75% of the shares.
If he has made some money from any kickbacks while running the Sajha buses then the CIAA should go after him. What he does with his other ventures is actually not under the jurisdiction of the CIAA.
Lokman should pick on someone his size. He should go after our so-called top leaders of our major political parties and not journalists who protest his appointment and his nataks. Our netas are not happy that Kanak gets dollars from our bidhesis to run whatever he wants to run.
But it seems that the CIAA has found no evidence of any wrongdoing by Ganesh Thapa who managed to make a few million dollars by stealing the funds meant for ANFA. Ganesh Thapa is still our lawmaker. He must have paid off most of our thulo mancheys so that he could be left alone.
And Kamal Thapa, the man who was our Home Minister during Gyanu Uncle's fun fest is our Deputy Prime Monster today. And he was not happy with Bista Jr and his natak so he kicked him out and has placed Resham Lama as a mantri.
Who is this guy? Well, the man from Kavre is the guy who is a Godfather to our don Ganesh Lama. Go figure. Mundreys become mantris in this land and what can you expect from our current government headed by the mundrey of all mundreys.
Lokman, please do your job. Give us something that we can all be proud of your natak. Go after our Emperor, go after our clowns who get kickbacks in millions of dollars from our contractors. Go after our top security personnel who make money off rations meant for our soldiers and low-level policemen. Go after those in power who abuse their authority to make billions of rupees for themselves and their near and dear ones.
Lokman, if you have the guts then put all our politicians in jail because none of them are clean and have misused their authority then and now. If you can't go after the big sharks then just celebrate your wedding anniversary inside the CIAA premises and quit.
