'cause if you do, kiss it good-bye.
Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe has declared that the constitution's 'stupid clause' guaranteeing compensation to landowners would be junked.
The land that whites owned? Too bad, so sad. It's going to be given to blacks.
Some in Zimbabwe are saying that Mugabe is doing this to shift attention away from the worsening economy and labor unrest, not to mention the deployment of troops last year. Well, there might be something to that, after all, unemployment is 50% and inflation is 70%. This is known as a Socialist success story.
