Full Speed Forwards & Bird Speed Backwards:

Hindsight is 20/20, and things I say are neither to hurt, harm, or hinder, but to heal and help before it is too late... I stand rock solid behind my statements, and you may doubt the Messenger, but never deny the proven facts, and you have already seen the proof... UK’s Fake Electors are Non-functional, SanTis and Judge Thomas are bad for Blacks, and Trump, the criminal, is more difficult to get out than to put in.

Some folks think my focus on Labour and Immigration suggests that other Departments are doing fine... That is far from fact... We are hard pressed to find a functional aspect of UK’s VI Government, and whether, Education/ Training, Communications/ Roads, or Health/ NHI, they all have to be addressed, but seeing Labour and Immigration as priorities is in respect for Africans’ forced Migration and Labour.

They made us believe in miracles, and hope that Imaginary Friends deliver life after Death... Church became a Poor Man’s Rotary Club, and the Bible is still a bestseller, with one in every room, incase Jesus drops by... Many of us are still foolish enough to believe that Government will voluntarily remove their Greedy Bill, and discontinue their Selective Immigration Visas and Work Permit Application Fines.

These are but a few of the Alternate Facts we cling to, for fear that we may learn the real Truth… We play dumb, and hide our heads in the sand, as Politicians feather their Nests, and Governors and other Immigrants, accept the wrongs and mediocrity, because their Roots are in different Countries, and when things get rough, they can pack up and leave VIslanders with all the problems they helped to create.

Again, it’s easy to think of Time as the great Constant that heals all wounds, but we are wrong, because nothing changes faster and more often than Time... Ironically, Time brings Knowledge and Experience, and nowhere in Nature, are Children leaders of their Parents... However, for Centuries, we accepted this as progress, and as our struggles continue, we boast of being headed forward while moving backwards.

The more Things change, the more they remain the same:

Meanwhile, although it is useless for the Victim, Death remains the only constant, so, I love Life, fear Death and enjoy everything else... Those claiming to be fearless and looking forwards to Death, may not have long to wait, for our Country seems to be dying... Our Trickledown Economy with limited Natural Resources of Sun, Sea, and Sand, appears to be joining a mad Dash and eager Race towards Death.

The hot Sun is cooking us alive; the Sea is growing more and more polluted by dead Seaweed and man-made debris, and the Sand is being eroded by Hurricanes, or controlled by foreign Interests… We brag of our rising standards when in fact, our indigenous population is in decline... Our parents typically raise ten or more Children, while our birth rate is in recession, as we struggle to afford a mere one or two.

We may have moved from the Fields to the House, but it is still the same System, because our Children are not being educated as leaders, but as followers... They are not even allowed to create or find locally owned Employment, because their Leaders have been systematically destroying these, so, Instead of Emancipation, it’s just a change of Masters, which may be foreign based or inept corrupt Governments.

These New Masters, whether Governors, Civil Servants or Politicians, have no real concern whether or not the People perish, provided their own Bread is buttered on both sides... They simply see us as their means to an end; mere Idiots who elevated them to their greatest jobs, with Social Immunity and huge Salaries for underperforming...  We even provide the Tamarind Whips to cut our collective A--es.

This Governmental Mismanagement is no secret, for we see it at home in our Empty Housing Project, as well as the mis-location of essential Government Services to the most inconvenient places... We also see it abroad in US Plans to reduce the years of Social Security Benefits, and we see it in UK’s Justice System, where they can imprison the innocent, and then charge them for the Prison’s living expenses.

Still paying the Price to deliver the Goods:

We wonder if the Leaders are foolish since we are in control of paying their bills, but, they know we are foolish, because we continue to pay their bills… It matters not if it’s Government or Opposition, since each Group is just awaiting their turn to lead the Parasitic Process… Their scheme ensures that, both Employers and Employees must first pay them, before Workers can see a Penny from their hard labour.

Previous Politicians prided themselves on selling out the Country to Opportunists whom they claimed to be Investors, but were actually Divestors... Today, our present Politicians seem as eager to be for sale, as they block Local Investors from building up their Country and saving our People, and this is repeated every time they enact unjustified delays and rejections in the Work Permits and Immigration Processes.

Think about it, for this is no accident... Soliciting side payments as a promise to fast track these Permit Processes is corruption, and makes it clear that they can do better, but choose not to... Furthermore, even as they block Local Employers from Work Permits that could save their Businesses, they award Belonger-ships to selected Immigrants thereby handing over the Birth Rights of our Local Children.

Subsequently, when we complain of our ‘born here’ status being eroded, it is our own Leaders who are opening doors and creating the conditions for Immigrants to replace us… We are already diluted and out-numbered to the point where we are no longer the Decision Makers, and the best we can hope for, is an attempt to save the remnant of a Country, where we now exist as Strangers in our own Home.

Maybe, because we were able to survive Hurricane Irma and Covid-19, there is still a glimmer of Hope... However, there is a limited window for everything, and we have no time to reinvent the Wheel, or taste the flame to know if it’s hot... We should also beware of the Government’s Political Games or Seminars, where they promise to hire Locals, but fail to address the Basic Tenets of Private Sector Employment.

By failing to acknowledge that there can be no Employees without Employers, they bring no solution… This is like Blind Farmers trying to milk a Bull... Furthermore, according to the unfinished CoI Drama,  this Political Mismanagement has been in practice for Decades, from top to bottom, and instead of getting better, it’s getting worse... We are now Professionals at squandering Money and wasting Time.

Our ‘fail safe step’ is to blame others... This game is known as ‘Political Projection’, where, what is said about others is more applicable to the Speaker... Trump and Republicans are perfect at this… Example: - The original meaning of being ‘Woke’ was the need for African Americans to stay awake and beware of Injustices, but we allowed it to be hijacked by others, who then use it to attack our freedom and progress.

Chasing the Shadow of an elusive Emancipation:

This Year marks the 63rd Anniversary of the Axe Handle Riots, and the 60th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s March on Washington... These served as turning points for Civil Rights, and played into President Johnson signing the Equal Rights Bill... Our Children now take for granted all the blood, sweat and tears of our Ancestors in their efforts to move from State sponsored Slavery to a still defunct Emancipation.

During those dark days, the most effective tool for keeping us in bondage, was forced Ignorance via the practice of preventing our ancestors from learning to read and write... A century later, Trump, DeSantis and other Republican Candidates are still promising to take us back into the real effects of Slavery… Therefore, whenever we see Black on Black Violence and Injustice, we see Thomas’ Evil and our Trumpism.

Too often it seems that the more things change, the more they remain the same... Instead of being truly Free and Emancipated, Blacks are still targeted and blocked from reaping the fair value of their worth... We are still being conditioned to disown ourselves to the point of being killed just for wearing our own Skins... No wonder Micheal Jackson, Kartel and others considered Bleaching as a Social Passport. 

Even as many seek to make us disrespect our own identities, we make it easier to be indoctrinated by those who would take us back to Tooth Faries and Santa Claus.... If the UK, and other Oppressors had time to indulge in our predicament, they would be laughing to death – perhaps they are – since, the more we fight among ourselves, the weaker we become, and the stronger our Enemies appear to be.

This Slave Master’s tactic of having Slaves punish one another, was a ‘Divide and Conquer’ strategy, that was used to ensure that Slaves never developed a trust, care or appreciation for one another... It is no accident that UK’s Governors are in charge of the Police, Civil Service and other crucial Government Agencies... By keeping their finger on the Nation’s Pulse, they can orchestrate and anticipate our Death.

The road was rough, and the battles tough, and when we stood at the doors and knocked, no one would let us in… We went through Hell and High Water to pay our dues… UK’s Fake Leaders may be willing and ready to Sell out the Lands and Rights of our People, but any news of our demise is premature... Now is the time to make a good difference; for the hour to finish that which our forefathers started, is at hand.

    Hi Mr. Frett, I regret I haven't had a chance to have a proper chat with you. There's a whole lot of negativity in your piece. Yet I only hear good things about you. So I don’t know where all that negativity comes from. As to "and Governors and other Immigrants, accept the wrongs and mediocrity, because their Roots are in different Countries, and when things get rough, they can pack up and leave VIslanders with all the problems they helped to create", don’t you have migrants working in your business? Do you really think those migrants working for you are just creating problems for you and the territory? I doubt you really think that. Re "they award Belongerships to selected Immigrants thereby handing over the Birth Rights of our Local Children". Well, what do you mean by "Local Children"? All my children were born here and haven't lived anywhere else but don’t have any Belongership. They get nothing through me as I'm one of the thousands whose application for rights is sitting on a dusty shelf in Immigration. Are they "Local Children"? You go on to write "Subsequently, when we complain of our ‘born here’ status being eroded…". Please Sir!, there is no such things as any ‘born here’ status; my family being a case in point. I fully agree with you that the "birth rate is in recession" here (and most places, of course). So with children born here being so precious, do we really want to treat so many children born here so badly? What's the point of building up the country anyway if it's not to do the best by those born here? I'd like to see you argue for the rights of all "Local Children".

    Mr. Frett, you mention "Africans" forced migration and labour". Did AFricans sell Africans into slavery?

    George Hegel:”The slave feels self-existence to be something external. “ Distilling this quotes says, the one who values liberty more than life is the master; the one who values life over liberty is the slave.

      AC, real talk, demonstrating courage to stand against the torrid rising tide. We have drunk the divide and rule conditioning cool aid. We foolishly divide, scatter, etc. thinking that is strength, progress, etc.; all that does is make us weaker and more vulnerable. The Jews can teach us a valuable, costly lesson on dividing and scattering, ie,,1500 in Europe.

      George Hegel: “ The slave feels self-existence to be something external.” Paraphrasing, the one who values liberty more than life is the —Master— and the one who values life over liberty is the—Slave. George Hegel also wrote:” if a man is a slave, his own will is responsible for his slavery….the wrong of slavery lies at the door not of enslavers or conquerors but of the slaves and conquered themselves.” The slave is bring cast for his own enslavement. The slave masters, colonialists, etc used meritorious manumissions to control slave/Blacks. That practice is still occurring in the BVI. We value the interests, lies, division ploys, etc of the colonialists over own freedom, self-interest, self-governing progress. We are willing to self-discriminate, etc, for a pittance; this is appeasement. This behavior is best describe by Sir Winston Churchill: “ An appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile hoping that they will be the last to be eaten.” Virgin Islanders don’t want to struggle, fight anymore; they are now dreamers,,wanting things on a silver platter. Fredrick Douglass: “ If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”

        Hegel’s second quote of slaves being responsible for their enslavement is the MO/typical of enslavers/colonizers to blame the enslaved/colonized for their demise.,Per Hegel, slaves should have fought/resist to the death. Well, who had the weapons to threaten, murder, etc, those that dare resist? For example, the US, the system/structure/institutions, etc, permit Whites to amass all the wealth, power, control, resources, control of government levers, etc, along with casting Blacks as a permanent underclass, and sn out -group and did everything to keep Blacks on the lowest level on the social acceptability ladder, while deeming themselves as the upperclass with special privileges, entitlements and racial superior. And then blaming Blacks for their deplorable conditions, for not taking advantage of available opportunities which they deliberately took actions to keep them for accessing. We have been kept down and deprive for so long that we have bought into believing that it where we should be. We divide, scatter, behaving like crabs in a barrel, buying into the conditioning.. We are afflicted with the Stockholm syndrome, behaving in the manner whites prescribe. Other bloggers mentioned meritorious manumissions. That was a play during slavery and is a play in this modern era. The more things change the more they stay constant/same. It is time to break out of the old mold, the funk, pursuing self-sufficiency, self-empowerment, more political and socioeconomic freedom, independence, etc. It is time to stand on our feet, gain our balance , step off into independence, etc. We (the BVI) weaned ourselves off of grant-in-aid in 1979. The BVI now gets no funding from the UK. Nevertheless, the BVI is in a crusading situation, ie, pays to be unilaterally governed. BVI taxes pay Mount Olympus’ housing, transportation, communications, entertainment, food, etc. It is a parasitic situation. Colonialism and exploitation good together like bread and butter, brick and mortar.

          @Sambo, birds of a feather flock together. You and Alred living in a time warp. We are in the 21st Century but two seemed to be stuck in 16th, 18th, 19th Centuries. It is time to propel forward. The past is the past and cannot be undone.

    just like you , I have enjoyed reading his writings , but is stead of explaining his parables he has exposed and revealed his inner self and the only thing he left out is ( them island people ) and he is talking in both sides of his face , I really thought he really down to earth ; but it looks like he was just doing a good acting job at pretending just like the wigged one who spew out his daily racism , but Alfred is using his parables to express his clandestine racist mentality when delivering his messages , and thinking he is slick and that's showing hypocrisy / no offence
