There are no real strikes in Haiti!
Individually, or groups with personalized, specific agendas, play the Strike Game. They claim to be rebelling against some government or societal element, with well-worded, politically correct phraseology that makes sense to the foreign observer.
High cost of living,
Exorbitant school costs,
High fuel prices,
The list is endless but the goal remains quite singular in focus. TERROR – disruption of society to the point at which the government gives in, pays off with jobs or positions in the government.
Many a Cabinet Minister, Secretary General, or Director General has been appointed because of terrorism, blackmail or whatever word you wish to apply in each criminal case.
Each time, the Nation loses some of its limited resources to satisfy these terrorist demands; resources that would be better utilized in paying for school, rice and beans for kids, or public health facilities.
Instead, these resources go toward expensive mistresses, huge mansions, Land Cruisers and holidays in the States.
Each non-Jovenel Cabinet Minister, Secretary General, Director General becomes another major leak in our reservoir of resources as these focuses pour money into the hands of Senators, Deputies or others, such as Aristide/Lavalas. Yes, Aristide is even now draining funds, on a daily basis, from ONA, and probably elsewhere.
Education Minister Manigat was a classic case. The ‘Perfect Storm’ upon which future criminals will base their actions. Manigat, as Minister of Education, used the tens of millions, hundreds of millions available to his educational system to promote his personal image, fill his and others’ bank accounts, while preparing for a run at our Presidency.
PSUGO – the concept created to improve education – became a major pipeline into criminal pockets at all levels, making an honest investigation impossible.
Most of our criminal terrorists do not have Manigat’s lofty a goal, settling for a big bank count, mansion on the beach, a mistress, or two and an American visa.
President Jovenel Moise needs help.
My houseboy, on a simple, basic level needs help. Today is his day off and he asked to delay it because – even though his family had no food – he didn’t want to risk being beaten or shot.
Unless Jovenel is supported in his efforts to reform our system – even fractionally – Haiti will truly become a Failed nation, sliding beyond the depths of salvation.
Or we could endure a real, firm occupation in which people liKe Moise Jean Charles will be locked up and the DEA will review its tolerant, extremely tolerant view of the cocaine business.
THE CLOCK IS TICKING!!!
ALL OF THIS OVERLOOKS THE REAL PEOPLE OF HAITI, WHO WANT NOTHING MORE THAN FOOD, A DECENT PLACE TO LIVE, SCHOOL FOR THE KIDS AND WORK.
