Here are a few snippets about how free and democratic Bahrain really is:

1. People are allowed to get out in masses and wave flags and honk and cause traffic jams to celebrate the National Action Charter (huh?) - but not rallies which ask what went wrong afterwards

2. People are allowed to celebrate the birth of a new democracy - but not its death

3. People are allowed to speak - only if they are to praise and pray for prolonging the lives of certain individuals

4. People are allowed to think - only if those thoughts are not sinister and harbour ill feelings to the regime

5. People are free to work - only if there are positions available to suit their ethnic background and religious sect

6. People are free to practise their religious beliefs - only if their religious beliefs are politically bankrupt

7. People are free to spend their Friday afternoons doing whatever they want - unless it is blogging nonsense or taking part in anti-state gatherings and illegal rallies

To be continued ....

I was born in Bahrain but left when I was 1 and a half to the US with my adopted parents. I have recently been interested to learn more about Bahrain. THANK YOU for the post!! I found that very interesting and can't wait to read more about Bahrain from someone who lives there. I can't imagine what my life would be like if I had been raised there..and while I am sure its a nice place I am very thankful I didn't have to grow up there. Please post more about the "democracy" of the government there. Also..having been raised with strong, intelligent woman in my family I would be interested to know about the life of women under Islamic tradition. It seems to me to be oppressive. Anyway..thanks again for the post.

Hey baby,

Why'd you delete the post about yet another encounter with the fugly? I was going to re-read it!

Looking forward to hearing more of your adventures with the fugly!

hey babe!

you look lovely & just a glance at your toes leaves me gasping for air.

I might be too cowardly to admit my 'thing' for you but I'll always be there!

And like you say "the truth shall never see light",

But just for you I'll put up a fight.

To win over a true beauty like you is not a sin.

Sadly, you've got tangled into 'maturity' and you insult royalty with your words of solidarity.

Oh how you impress me with your innocent face yet drive me crazy with your addcitive ways.

As always, I'll be waiting for your tender touch, its like a blood rush to my brains that flush the shy blush from my electric crush

Oh do you hear that sudden hush?

- with love & kisses,

from your secret admirer - the princess from hell.
