Khaddafi is dead

“Sic Semper Tyrannis”.

This is what John Wilkes Booth is supposed to have yelled when he leaped from the balcony at Ford’s Theater after shooting President Lincoln in the head. Thus ever to tyrants, in Latin.

While I appreciate that Libya deposed their dictator (and Khaddafi WAS a bad man), they might have liked a trial for him. Like Saddam Hussein. But maybe this is better – at least he is gone and cannot affect their lives any longer.

Of all the dictators in history, how many get statues built of them, and how many die in the streets, fleeing their own people? It just doesn’t seem like a job with a future, unless your name is Castro or Kim. But their days are coming…

Have you ever wanted to be a dictator of a country or the whole world? If so, how would you govern? Leave a comment – I’d like to hear from you.

  1. Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Many thanks, I appreciate it!

  2. Kay – sorry for the late reply. I have been away from the blog for awhile. I use WordPress.com to host the blog site. It is a free blog, so there’s no cost. WordPress.com offers a LOT to bloggers for free, as well as reasonably priced upgrades. I highly recommend them. Also, there is is WordPress.org, where you can download the WordPress software yourself. WordPress explains all this really well on their Support site. Check it out!

  3. Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
    you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is great, as well as the content!
