Making our children landless & penniless

By Alred C. Frett

I promised to answer your questions from time to time and today I will do some… At the same time, you may be familiar with some (if not all) the persecution and victimisation inflicted on me by those in 'High Offices' so this would be a good time to research as to whether their actions are justified… This is not to seek help for my cause but gather information for your children’s sake.

Combating Corruption in Administration, Legislation, NASH & NHIS

By Alred C. Frett

A Mission to stop Leaders from wasting Young Lives & Golden Opportunities??- Many of you remind me that I spoke of ‘running for Office’ and then went silent on the matter – You are correct that I am not eager to do so… Even with all the attacks, my personal life is a good one… However, my pain comes from seeing the wanton destruction and disenfranchisement of our children by the enforcers of systems and slave laws designed to hinder and not to help.

Exercising the powers of Slave Laws - locally & internationally

Dissing Martin and Mandela:

As we exit the real Black History Month of August, listeners to my Radio Programme may know Mandela fulfilled my wish by returning home, away from the symbolic confinement of public establishments. You may also know the last weeks of August were filled with new and old sights and sounds of the 50th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s Civil Rights March on Washington.

Not all Trayvon Martins are dead nor all of Mandela was freed

By Alred C. Frett

Teaching us to hate ourselves:

Recent news has been dominated by the Trayvon Martin murder case and Nelson Mandela’s hospitalization with every news medium and talking head contributing their personal spin and opinion… While each may range from absurdity to validity, the underlying theme has been the ‘Effects and Social Linkage between Injustice and Racism on the Descendants of Slaves’.

Children of the Innocent judged by those lacking moral authority

By Alred C. Frett

No need to trust me if you Trust Yourself:

I say things as I see them and for those who are quick to ask why should you listen to me and believe? - The answer is quite simple – I am not asking you to… I have researched these things for myself so rather than just believing me or anyone, it may be best to do your own research and learn your own Truths so you can decide whether or not to believe your own lying Eyes.

Will months of disasters bring a collapse of our Pillars??

By Alred C. Frett

From Social to Natural Disasters:

As we leave the Month of Seniors and enter the Hurricane Season we can never predict the future but based on the treatment of our Seniors we should prepare ourselves for any disaster especially when, on the last day of Seniors recognition, our Local Leaders (sans Archie’s late arrival) couldn’t spare time or effort to visit the Home for the Elderly as a token of appreciation.

The real killers of VI National Health Insurance

By Alred C. Frett

Are BV-Islanders wrong to seek Truth and Facts??:

Following our last article concerning perceived Dangers of National Health Insurance, I was accused of opposing this Scheme and I will not deny this but it should be clear that my opposition is based on their failure to provide necessary information concerning the Sustainability, Costs, Principles, Objectives and Bylaws governing this venture.

Is VI’S National Health Insurance more problem than solution??

By Alred C. Frett

And they too shall fall from their High Pinnacles of Power:

Even as we depart Black History Month there is evidence that we are finally learning to let go of regressive practices of the past… There still remains a long way to go but indicators suggest that while this may be a rough year for us it is likely to be a much rougher year for the Wicked and Corrupt as they fall from their High Seats of Power whether by Will, Force, Sickness or Death.
