Under the Duvaliers- Francois and Jean Claude – the Macoute had mistresses.
These ladies might be set up in a business, out of sight.
No Macoute would ever suggest that his mistress should hold any sort of important, or unimportant government position.
The Duvaliers understood structured government and a certain structure of society that had its recognized limitations.
All of this is gone, “washed away, like tears in the rain….”
Unfortunately, our current leadership places their mistresses in key governmental positions, creating petty, jealous roadblocks to any constructive progress our Nation might make.
More unfortunately, some guys have more than one mistress, or lady-friend, or possibility for future mistress entitlement, multiplying the problem. Some guys change mistresses, more often than I change my socks, and this leaves all of the earlier ladies, with government contracts, as more are added to the budget. Many, many, many government positions are filled by these ladies who should be limited to Momentary rendezvous in “Moments” as whore houses are named in Haiti.
The Nation is out of control.
If it were on autopilot we would have some chance, but no one seems to be at the controls. Everyone is chasing their own personal fortunes, forgetting our 12,000,000 people who need help, desperately, even as the government makes vague statements about security, constitutionality and tourism.
The Macoute had a structure and certain rules.
Today’s gangs and politicians (sometimes difficult to differentiate between the two categories) have no structure, other than the thrust for power//$$.
The real and only question remains!
How long before President Trump declares Haiti a Threat to the Hemisphere’s Security and sends an occupation force?
