When Their Good ‘Ol Days become Our Bad 'Ol Days:

With so many local issues begging to be addressed it becomes frustrating when international matters far beyond our control suck all the Oxygen out of the room… Nonetheless we can no longer block out the World by sticking our Heads in the sand... Whether Friend or Foe, Child or Adult, Local or International; we are not alone - The Shenanigans of Mr Trump will affect us all.

We may wish to ignore him but as the Chief Executive of the most Powerful Nation he cannot be dismissed and even as we finally see through the deception it may be much too late to undo the Damage he has already done… Thanks to his daily Tweets of Lies and Malice we have entered the Bird Brain Era or what he sees as the Good ‘Ol Days when America supplanted Truth with Lies.

Consequently, instead of welcoming the revelation of Truth they teach us to punish those who would enlighten us… In his ‘Make America Great Again’ this same tactic was used to keep our Forefathers in Ignorance – He now seeks to use it on their Great grand Children and succeeds whenever we belittle ourselves and express gratitude that John Hawkins brought us from Africa.

Failure to understand whatever happens there affects us here is like thinking the Globe should be flat and the Sun revolves around Earth… This Mentality fails to reason that our Currency is the US Dollar and our Leaders are overwhelmed by the propensity to act more American than America… Many of us seem proud of this bogus association even if it retards and destroys our Children.

In the process we have copied their worst Principles, Policies and Procedures from the Days of Slavery until now… We may deny this but their mal-actions dictate every facet of our lives and the Policies and Practices of their Governments is reflected in our Governments’ Education, Health, Environment, Energy, Law and Arm Forces, Religion, Labour and Immigration Policies.

Seeing Ourselves in the Mirror of Trumpism:

We may be quick to deny this but the following comparisons will show the unnatural similarities:

Whereas it is natural for Education and Knowledge to be increased with every successive Generation they are focused on scaling back Public Education and thereby deprive the less fortunate a chance to progress towards Equality through the Power of Knowledge – Our Local Governments continue to degrade Public Education from High Schools and Colleges by their Policies and Underfunding.

Whereas access to Good Health Care should always be a priority they have focused on replacing ObamaCare with TrumpCare that costs more and delivers less – Here at home NHI was created to generate Government Revenue by destroying Private Providers and Insurance Companies and although we managed some improvements in the Patient’s Interest the struggle continues.

Their own Scientists constantly warn of damage being done to Earth’s Environment by Human Carelessness and Fossil Fuels but they are removing Regulations as fast as possible – Meanwhile we use the Environmental Excuse to sell Plastic Bags and sell off our pristine Land and Water Rights to the highest Bidders and Political Puppet Masters even if this kills our Ecology and Country.

While it is common knowledge that waste and abuse of Energy threaten the World and all Mankind rather than act Responsible in the production and consumption of limited Resources they abuse Oil Reserves, promote Coal Mining and threaten to steal from other Countries - We neglect making our Suppliers accountable for Costs and Availability so the price of Crude drops but not for us.

Governments have always use the Police and Arm Services to do their Political Bidding and the US has intensified this in all forms with Frisking, Unreasonable Seizures and unnecessary Deaths - Here at home the Public Opinion is already seeing this trend where equality is not equal and Police Harassment appears to be used as a means of generating and collecting Government Revenue.

As America conflates and weaponises Labour, Immigration and Religion, in contradiction to their own Constitution, they promote Religious Discrimination against Muslims and others – Here at home we have discriminated against Rastafarians and used Visas for Profit and as a Tool of Discrimination against selected Countries – Another classic case of Collective Punishment.

Accepting Reality & Harnessing our own Power for the Way Forward:

These are just a few of the negative linkages – You can likely think of many more but just like our Mentor, we profess to be keepers of the Highest Christian and Moral Values while basing our very existence on the ‘love of Money and lust for Power’… Very often we cannot see our own Hypocrisy but by seeing it in Mr Trump we may recognise reflections of ourselves and seek to correct them.

We should all acknowledge that the New World and our Territory were built on Slave Labour and the help of others… Unfortunately, Traditional Practice is for Societies built on the sweat and blood of Blacks and Poor turn around and ostracise them – This is wrong… As Slave Descendents we are all Family and Citizens with Special Moral Rights simply because we were brought here against our Will.

We may be driven down and out by the most Powerful People and Offices in the World but we must understand that when one is victimised all are victimised and when one is driven out all are driven out… This may be the only home we know and we should not live in perpetual Fear or go along with known wrongs just to get along… Besides, if we keep running there will be no where left to go.

Harnessing your own Powers for the Way Forward:

Standing our ground and breaking Chains that shackled us for so long will not be easy for we have been well conditioned to believe that we can accomplish nothing on our own… This is designed to make us fail because, while no one wins all the times we are guaranteed to lose every time we fail to try… I prefer if you use your own examples but I can tell you from experience it can be done.

I again refer you to the New Hospital, Free College Education, Beef Island Bridge, UK Passports and others I have told you about over these past years… Bearing in mind, that it is not uncommon for Leaders to take credit for achievements they actually opposed, you can always ask those who should have fought alongside me but did not… It was you the People who made it happen.

Of course it was not easy - The Stuff I tell you may sound Rough and Impossible but time shows it to be right – Please re-read the Article “Did Russia, WikiLeaks, FBI and GOP Steal the US Elections?” – Let’s not forget that I have been fired and demoted for standing for my principles but at no time could they ever show where I lied, deceived or failed to work in your Best Interests.

History may show that you have often failed yourself but Fact is – though you may not have known it - I would have accomplished Nothing was it not for your Support in these Efforts – You made it happen… Today we are at another Crossroad where you need yourselves more than you ever needed anyone in your Life – Today, only you can make that crucial decision to fail or succeed.

PS: I will continue addressing some of your Questions & Comments on Live BVP Radio Programmes

      The usual stream of nonsense - surprisingly he does not mention slavery until paragraph 6 but he does get a mention of forefathers in paragraph 4.
      Can somebody remind me how many votes he got last time he stood in a general election.

    Not even one of Done Deal admirers, John D. Rockefeller who recently died, couldn't keep himself alive even after buying over 7 human hearts- who really knows where he got those human hearts from- Only the special few who truly runs the programs of the entire world is previe to that kind of information.

      The Proof is in Alred's pudding. All this "talking truth to power" don't mean a-thing if he is not doing anything to change the spiraling demise of our country's future, his included.

    Well written masterpiece. Very well put together it one issue I have is when you speak about police harassment. I will like to know what do you refers to as police harassment. Remember, if the police continuously deals with law breakers and those who have no regards for law and order, it cannot be harassment. Someone has to do it and if it is left unnoticed, then we will not like to see where the BVI will go.

    Because there is a group who always wants to oppress another group. There is a group who believes that they are superior and another is inferior. There is a group who believes that it must rule the world according to its dictates but who do not believe in ruling the world as it should be in the interest of all humanity. Revolutions bring about change, so we in the BVI will have a revolution soon to bring about the change we desire.

    Unfortunately, this fiasco only proves Dr. Smith's ineptitude and his party inability to govern.

    They say a day can be a lifetime in politics but 2019 is a long time off so the VIP or the new party have no reason to cheer.
