A State of A Nation With A Leader In Despair and Arrogance

Mr. President James Michel has used the State of The Nation to make false claims on the success of his Administration, and then vehemently attack the poor, the ordinary, the sick, the under educated, the weak in our society, all of which are a product of a failed system, they are your people Mr. James Michel, and today you kick  them with your foot.
 I have never heard such an uneducated speech on the serious problems of a Nation. While you may take offense to that fellow 3000 miles away giving you lessons, guess what: this is the digital media age where one can be 10,000 miles away, yet keep you well in check. 
Only the fat cat MNA’s and Ministers who do not feel the pinch of James Michel’s failed economics clapped hands. One short and fat MNA dressed in a burgundy short, with the buttons missing a hole clapped his hands by slapping his table with one hand. He only had to say whoooooo,whoooo, to  remind us of Darwins’ Theory of Evolution.
Never has a President said so little, and …

Breaking News: 2 former Navy SEALs found dead aboard ship at center of ‘Captain Phillips’ saga

Two former Navy SEALs working as security contractors aboard the Maersk Alabama were found dead Tuesday aboard the container ship, a day after it was docked near an island northeast of Madagascar, according to the Trident Group, the security firm that employed the men.
The company said families of the two contractors have been notified and requested that their names not be released.

To be sure, only seven months after the Phillips' saga, Somali pirates attacked the ship again but were repelled by gunfire and a …

Reconciliation Should Happen But Not On A Tyrant’s Terms And Conditions.

By Josette Hoarau

So Albert Rene has finally looked up his dictionary and has learnt a new word – reconciliation. After so many years of hardline dictatorship with acts aping the behavior of notorious dictators like Mugabe, Kim Il Sung, Gaddafi etc., one must question the timing of this call by an ailing hard man in the twilight of his years. Reconciliation - it sounds great! So should we all jump up, rush and reach out to the dictator and again let him dictate the pace of change in our country?

Firstly, I would be very interested to hear what Albert Rene’s definition of reconciliation is. In my opinion reconciliation means more than just a senile old dictator uttering some words over the radio or even sitting at a table so that we can reach over, listen to a shallow insincere apology, shake hands, then we all go back home and we live happily ever after with the current status quo maintained.

When Rene executed the plans of his coup in 1976, he knew exactly what he was…
