A journey from Castro to Trump to you – number next?

Do you really believe a Slave Master would risk his life to save a Slave?

Some who call themselves Leaders encourage us to accept what is clearly wrong; preaching the doctrine of going along to get along when in fact this is the same tactic used by Slave Masters to convince Slave Mothers to convince their Children – especially Sons – to become Good Slaves… This love for Propaganda cultivates Ignorance, promotes Self-hate and simply prolongs our misery.

Did Russia, Wikileaks, FBI & GOP steal the US Elections?

Alred C. Frett

Pain & Sorrow make us cry but Weeping does not make us see things clearer:

For the past weeks we had a reduction in Funerals and we should all be feeling good so it is unfortunate to see the Sorrow and Tears of those who seem to have lost a loved one following the results of the US Presidential Election… Maybe we shouldn’t care but we must because America casts a large Shadow which may serve to shelter us from Rain or deprive us of Sunlight.

The Systems – The Victims – VI Wikileaks or NHI threats

By Alred C. Frett

Time is continuous & it’s left to us to fill the Gaps:

We are Beneficiaries of the Information Generation but even this modern Technology cannot save those determined to aid in their own destruction… By shackling ourselves to opposite extremes we either choose to restrict ourselves to the past by refusing to plan for the future or chose to blindly rush towards what we regard as the Future while ignoring important lessons from the Past.

Mr Minister – Please take down that sign

Which of you chose NHI & its Fee Structure Schedule?

For Decades Virgin Island’s claim to fame was as a Tax Haven whose Revenues came from helping other Nationalities evade or avoid Taxes but just last week Government’s Billboard featured a Black Man in Handcuffs for this same Practice… However, as Sheep and Judas Goats we accepted this without a whimper so they have now replaced it with one by NHI exposing our short Memory and Stupidity.

When 9/11 still affects us locally & internationally

Alred C. Frett

9/11 & Relics from 15-Years ago:

America commemorates 15-years since 9/11 and to those who never cared it seems such a long time while for those who shared the Loss and Agony it seems like Yesterday… 9/11 is a Tragedy that happened so quickly but lingers so long that it brought out the best and worst in us and continues to result in the loss of so many innocent Lives that we should always remember not to forget.

Black people – ‘What the hell do you have to lose?’

By Alred C. Frett

What the Hell do you have to lose?

A serious question was asked of Slave Descendants by Mr Donald J. Trump, a potential President of the United States of America who also described Blacks as living in poverty with inferior Education, a lack of Jobs and likelihood of being shot in their own neighbourhoods… In response, too many of us became annoyed with Mr Trump rather than seeing whether and why these things he said were true.

A choice between 21st Century slavery & real freedom

By Alred C. Frett

Using ‘I told you so’ prevents re-invention of the Wheel:

It is no secret that we were born intellectually naked but in a misguided World no one likes hearing ‘I told you so’… Nonetheless, in the real World the greatest level of Intelligence is the ability to learn from others and our present Cloak of Knowledge is woven from many fabrics of “I told you so’s” – It is unwise to reinvent the wheel by being too proud or ashamed to learn from anyone.

The price of facing truth in the past, present & future

Alred C. Frett

When the Gift of Youth becomes the Product of Past Experiences:

Being young is wonderful – It’s a Promise of Forever where we can get everything, do everything, be everything and live everlasting but this is only as good as it gets for as long as it lasts – Time passes and most things change… We become caricatures of our Grandparents only to find we didn’t get everything, we didn’t do everything, we weren’t all we could be and we will not last forever.
