UK vs BVI - Talking large about doing little

Alred C. Frett

Messages from the Masters:

February, 2024, Black History Month… We can talk about anything, including how Ron DeSantis, a Ringleader for revoking our History with Anti-Woke Nonsense, has suffered a Presidential Nomination defeat... However, the threats are still growing, and we cannot risk the chance of their success, so we must work extra hard to ensure that this and generations to come will not be deprived of their Identity.

2024: A new year for tackling the same old problems

Alred C. Frett

Needing to Look Backward so We can Move Forward:

Welcome to 2024... This is a leap year which means that with the expansion to 29 days in February, we will have the longest Black History Month within a seven year span... That is good, but even as we leave 2023, the after-effects still linger on... With all our Commentaries and New Year Resolutions, we should reflect and acknowledge whether or not things are getting better or worse, before our Memories fade.

And then we blinked & all was lost

Alred C. Frett

It’s not Magic – It’s Basic:

We label ourselves the Information Generation, but the only things we were born knowing is how to eat and poop… All our knowledge was picked up from others, so if they are wrong then we are also wrong… Nonetheless, even as we follow their hand-me-down teaching, we still think we know more than they do, so we call ourselves special, and regard others, as fools and infidels, when we may really be the idiots.

Divorced from justice but not separated from the people

Alred C. Frett

I am Forever Grateful, & Offer Thanks to you the People:

It may be flattering for persons to praise my last Articles as Master Pieces, but the truth is, the things I am saying now are what I have been saying all along… It’s merely a matter of speaking Truth to Power, in order to provide Truth for the Youth... It’s also okay for those who differ with me and call me a Hypocrite, because I promote the full employment of V-Islanders, even as I support the Rights of employed Non-Belongers.

Explaining the parables & fulfilling the word

Alred C. Frett

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.
