Andy Martin was applying AMERICAN and ENGLISH law/principles to an AFRICAN family/tribe.

In applying “Stepmother” to Barack Sr., it would NORMALLY mean that the Step-parent came along AFTER the fact. But Barack Sr.’s MOTHER WAS HIS FATHER’S 2nd WIFE. Meaning Sarah was already a wife when Barack SENIOR was born.

Therefore, Sarah was there when Barack Sr. was born, this has been a bone of contention and confusion for many.

NOW Sarah says, “no, I meant I was there when Barack Sr. was born, not Barack Jr., the President” when asked to clarify if she did in fact state “I was there when Barack was born”. Which could have very well been the case. But so many have said, “No, that couldn’t be it because she was his STEPMOTHER” (once again, applying AMERICAN PRINCIPLES to this situation and assuming this meant Sarah came along AFTER Barack was born, which is not true-multiple wives were common in the Lua tribe)

Therefore, Andy Martin is correct AND incorrect.

Does this make sense? Please ping your list to my explanation as I understand it and let me know if I am off base.

Thanks

Chief comes in on 54 to correct Wiki. We should have a movement that results in Chief having final say in all Wiki concerning areas of Chief’s expertise on O, Wiki to lockdown all entries thereafter. Of course I’m being cynical but what magnificent work. Thanks for coming in here Chief.

See then posts 55 & 56, wherein autumnraine aaks for a ‘Chiefcheck’. Seems autu has done quite well.

Will someone please leave a gold brick at Chief’s door and also be willing to arrainge open-ended, complete on-call assistance by the very most trustworthy individual to construction of a completely impervious website at Chief’s full instruction? Is this too much to ask?

While you’re at it drop me a lifetime supply of printer ink. I can then actually SEE and keep better track of posts. I am a victim of the NEA’s look-see tyranny and a graphically-aligned sort anyways, in case ur wond’rin’.

Good to get this straightened out, even on the eve this dirtball usurper’s installation. What a snake this guy is. Everything is smoke and mirrors. Thanks again autu- sure went over my poor head. When the hell did this “NOW” happen? Don’t feel obliged to answer, but it’d be a good 2 know. I’m of the ‘non-Kenyan-birth’ stripe anyways.
