SLP’s Star Rises Even Higher

Prime Minister Kenny D. Anthony
Prime Minister Kenny D. Anthony

ALLEN Chastanet has to be Saint Lucia’s most worried politician.

First, he had to contend with the Saint Lucia Labour Party’s highly successful 2014 Conference of Delegates held over the past two Sundays. The Open Session on Sunday, 30 November, saw hundreds of red-shirt delegates overwhelm the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School’s auditorium and an even larger number of supporters overflowing the adjoining car park. The following Sunday, at the Closed Session held at Grande Riviere, Dennery, saw a smooth and professional event which culminated in an overwhelming endorsement of Political Leader and Prime Minister Kenny D. Anthony’s leadership.

As if the SLP’s massive showing was not worry enough, UWP leader Allen Chastanet and his main crutch, Guy Joseph, who journeyed across to the Commonwealth of Dominica to provide assistance to their namesake opposition party there, got even worse news. There, the UWP was crushed with the Dominica Labour Party not only securing an unprecedented fourth straight term but in the process of doing so maintained a massive two-thirds majority.

In much the same way Prime Minister Anthony has shown up Chastanet’s ineptitude it would appear that his Dominican counterpart Lennox Linton is suffering a similar fate at the hands of Prime Minister Skerritt. The truth is this: Chastanet is not incapable of securing a parliamentary seat but he cannot even settle on a constituency in which to run. Initially, he had considered the constituency of Gros Islet and when that failed he set his sights on Castries South. It would not take long for him to realise the futility of contesting against the formidable Dr. Robert Lewis and without batting an eyelid, Chastanet proceeded to the west coast where he professed his undying love for the “parish of Soufriere.” It was as if Gros Islet and Castries South did not exist and were mere figments of someone’s imagination. Never mind his promises of endless “peh en payan”, however, the Soufriere constituents saw through the charade and soundly rejected Chastanet, in the process returning their favourite son, Harold Dalson, for a second parliamentary term.

Chastanet is a leader without a seat and such is his reputation he has failed to convince even his own supporters that there is no truth to the suggestion that he is in discussions with the Micoud South MP to have the incumbent vacate the seat in his favour.

Like his Saint Lucian counterpart, Lennox Linton was unable to inject enthusiasm and hope into his UWP. But how could Linton inspire hope and confidence when he chose the safe seat vacated by his former party leader Edison James? Clearly Kenny D. Anthony is made of sterner stuff than either Chastanet or Linton!

The fact is that upon becoming leader of the SLP, Anthony was at liberty to have a seat of his choosing, including Labour’s citadel and jewel, Laborie. Instead, Anthony proceeded to Vieux Fort South represented then by Peter Josie, considered by his cronies as invincible. It is now recorded history that not only did Anthony soundly defeat Josie but he relegated Josie to the “never to be elected again” group of politicians. Additionally, Anthony led his party to an historic 16 to 1 victory. That, Mr. Chastanet, is the epitome of superior and quality leadership.

What then was Linton thinking when he invited Chastanet to be part of his campaign? How could someone who, despite his massive spending, was unable to secure a seat in his own territory and is at the stage where he cannot even identify a constituency, be of assistance to a party in Dominica? Wasn’t Linton aware of Chastanet’s spendthrift ways? Didn’t Linton know the Court of Appeal had deemed Chastanet an unreliable witness whose word the Court could not accept? Who knows, Chastanet’s presence may well have convinced Dominicans that based on his association with Linton that Linton too was a money squanderer and someone who spoke the truth economically? So Dominicans did the right thing and remained safe with Labour.

Chastanet now has to return to Saint Lucia, tail between his legs after having overseen another failed electoral campaign. Not only that, he has no choice but to traverse the now open to vehicular traffic, Bois d’Orange Bridge. Now that Saint Lucians have seen first-hand, the impressive structure, the most modern of its kind in the English-speaking Caribbean, how are the lies spewed by his party going to convince the populace that it was not worth the cost?

Unlike Chastanet’s sidekick, Guy Joseph, Deputy Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has been as transparent as clear plastic. Each pronouncement by him is accompanied by documentary evidence. Neither Chastanet nor Guy Joseph can hide from the fact that the bridge was designed by FDL Consult Inc, a firm headed by Gilbert Fontenard. They cannot hide from the fact that Mr. Fontenard was the consultant appointed by Guy Joseph and retained by the Deputy Prime Minister Pierre. Guy Joseph cannot deny that the initial plans drawn up under his watch were rejected by the world famous United States Army Corp of Engineers who considered the design as inadequate. Chastanet and his UWP cannot deny that the same US Army Corps of Engineers recommended “bord piling” and that the plans submitted under Labour were approved. The UWP cannot deny that the US Army Corps of Engineers ranked the new design for the bridge to be structurally superior to its predecessor and capable of withstanding a one in one hundred-years flood event. Chastanet and Guy Joseph cannot deny that the costing for the bridge was painstakingly perused and approved by the personnel of the World Bank who thereafter released funds for its construction. These are the facts which no amount of lies can alter!

Instead of their continued untruths what Chastanet and Joseph need to tell the people of Saint Lucia is why the bypass road which was constructed under Joseph’s watch cost more than $3,100,000.0 exclusive of VAT. If VAT were added that short stretch of road would have cost nearly $3,600,000.00 or more than 25% of the cost of the newly opened Bois D’Orange bridge. Chastanet and Joseph should also explain to the country why, after spending so much money on that stretch of road, that it has reverted to the use of the land owner and government has nothing to show for their outlay. So taxpayers’ money has in effect been used for the benefit of a single private land owner.

Saint Lucians should not be surprised at such reckless spending as this is the modus operandi of Chastanet and the UWP. It is exactly what Chastanet did with the Black Bay lands. It is the same Chastanet and UWP who purchased the derelict Daher Mall – the same family benefitting from the bypass I mentioned earlier benefitted from that purchase – for more than $30,000.000.00. The purchase price of the Mall, which is in close proximity to the Bois D’Orange bridge, could have paid for the bridge three times over. The more than $80,000,000.00 now needed to refurbish the Mall could pay for the Bois D’Orange bridge seven times over. And the cost of the Black Bay lands could have paid for the Bois D’Orange bridge six times over. In effect, Chastanet and the UWP’s reckless spending on just the Mall and the Black Bay lands could have paid for fourteen bridges similar to the Bois D’Orange Bridge.
No wonder, like their Dominican counterparts, Saint Lucians too are staying safe with Labour!

    1. Neither Kenny, nor Chastenet, nor Preville has any answers to the fundamental problems facing this country. They are all banking on the existing and deepening ignorance of their respective follower base for yet another victory at the polls. Then Kenny will try to continue to be Fidel Castro. Chastenet, will continue to try to get airlift to help family businesses. Chamber of Commerce with talk its usual tripe about ease of doing business. Jackass UWPs will continue to wish for the re-incarnation of Compton. SLP yardfowls as if they are having an orgasm will shout in a chorus “En Rouge!” for the still coming” better days”. Saint Lucia is a sick society. Pure idiot country.

  1. In the language of psychology this is called projection. That is, whatever mental illness you are suffering from you see it reflected in others. That is very convenient too. The stoopid, the ignorant, the uneducated, and our teeming hordes of idiots will take solace in your crass buffoonery. Did you waltz on the platform with him at Soufriere and joined in the big belly dance on the Market Steps in Castries too?

  2. This writer (whose initials, by the way, are SLP) is trying to tell St.Lucians that Kenny and Pierre, who, out of necessity, were forced to re-construct the badly damaged Bois d’Orange bridge, are somehow entitle to another 5 years in office to continue to inflict more economic pain on the rest of us. Wow!
    Does he really think that that poor little old lady from Dennery who is forced to pay VAT on her medications, and has very little use of the Bois d’ Orange bridge, will forget the pain that he and the SLP has inflicted on her?
    Does he really think that that high school graduate from Anse La Raye who cannot get a job and is now forced to jump off cliffs, into the ocean, for passing tourists, and has very little use of the Bois d’Orange bridge, will forget Kenny Anthony’s promise of jobs, jobs, jobs?
    I really wish that (SLP) writer would use his gift of writing to further causes that would benefit more St.Lucians than the narrow interest of Kenny and Pierre.

    1. TOM TOM,

      After reading the rebuttal to your devaluation of the bridge by CHARLEE’S ANGEL, I regret to inform you that your stated opposition to the value of this structure has been thoroughly trashed. Even from a medical perspective CHARLEE showed the importance of a functional transportation systems even as he expounded on the life-saving, perilous journey to the Victoria Hospital to save the little girl’s life. He goes on to mention the Roosevelts, which reminded me of the many National Parks brought into existence by Theodore/Teddy Roosevelt with such places like the Grand Canyon, preserved for future generations, but Charlee cites numerous examples of how such structures would be beneficial financially. I am now of the opinion that your stated opposition to the bridge is narrowly confined to your blind support for this embarrassment know as Allen Chastanet.

      1. ” I am now of the opinion that your stated opposition to the bridge is narrowly confined to your blind support for this embarrassment know as Allen Chastanet.”
        ——————————————————————————————————————————————————-
        Can you please point out my stated opposition to the Bois d’ Orange Bridge? I thought I made it clear that the re-construction of this badly damaged bridge, which was conceptionalized by the UWP, should not be used as a vehicle for another 5 year term by this SLP administration.
        You actually understood the ramblings of CHARLEE’S ANGEL? Good for you.But then again, a drowning man will grasp at a straw.

        1. TOM TOM,

          I am certain I have instructed you in what is called “the Second Conversation”. It is the idea implied but is unspoken in the conversation. An example of this language is when God Almighty, the perfect one, is presented to the African as a Caucasian. The implied message is you Black men are defective, since perfection is presented as pale skin, blue-eyes, thin-lip, and blond hair. Something is defective with Stephenson King, Richard Frederick, and Claudius Preville; their lips are too big and skin too dark to be in charge of the slave plantation aka U.W.P.

          How else do you want me to read your statement, (what you’re really trying to say — in the Second conversation) ? In St. Lucia we say, “Man what you really trying to say?” when the Second Conversation is deemed offensive.

          “Does he really think that that high school graduate from Anse La Raye who cannot get a job and is now forced to jump off cliffs, into the ocean, for passing tourists, and has very little use of the Bois d’Orange bridge, will forget Kenny Anthony’s promise of jobs, jobs, jobs?”

          TOM TOM do you expect me to interpret your language as favoring and endorsing the construction of the bridge ? or would you not have preferred the money be used to create Jobs and lower the tax burden upon the mal-ley-wey? let’s be consistent here, and cut the double talk, which I suspect you learned from your imposter leader Allen Chastanet. Let me leave you with the most blatant display of deception I have ever seen practiced in St. Lucia; this one surpasses Claudius Francis’ Space Aliens were out to assassinate him, but he had captured them in the W.P. Boulevard, and that these captured Space Aliens who were sent by Richard Frederick, were being questioned at Police H.Q.

  3. Tom-Tom:

    That’s the reason I enjoy reading your opinions in these blog. Who can rebuttal such poignant and deliberate argument so magnificently presented by you? It’s unfortunate however that you are a follower of an individual who has been labelled a charlatan by the Courts and has continued to practice deception upon the enslaved minds of black people, who are taught to worship a “white” man as God, even as Allen Chastanet obliged with his, “my earpiece only works in English and not in Kweyol” stunt. This loyalty to the Arc Deceiver however, brings me to question this lack of morality begging the question, what has Allen promised you and Peter Josie? Rick Wayne has an axe to grind, that is understandable, we might even throw in the destruction of Peter’s political aspirations, but why would you encourage Lucians to lend support to a fake and fraudulent ignoramus, Allen Chastanet ?

    I had hoped Claudius Preville would have prevailed over Allen for the party’s leadership, but after his recent defeat by Ezikel Joseph, this man started talking crazy about Jesus died for his sins, leaving me to conclude that this U.W.P. is a stable of well bred slaves on the Chastanet Plantation.

    1. Son-of-man, Son-of-man, Son–of-man; maybe if your mom were 79 years old like my mom is, just underwent major surgery, have no medical insurance, and in the hands of doctors who constantly prescribe expensive medications, on which 15% VAT is added;, then you would probably see things my way. So until you are in my shoes, don’t criticize my criticism of this SLP government who has indeed added to my family’s burden.

      Now, let’s move on. Son-of-man, Malcolm X once labeled white folks as devils; he hated them even more than you hate Chastanet; but upon returning from his Mecca pilgrimage, he had a change of heart. Maybe after your upcoming pilgrimage to Mecca, you too will have a change of heart and will eventually learn to love Chastanet. You might even end up campaigning for him. LOL.

      One more thing; a recent BBC finding have shot down your theory of water coming to earth by way of comets. Just thought you should know this.

      Take care of yourself buddy.

    2. TOM-TOM

      It saddens me that your mother is undergoing such trials in her health, and again I must agree with you that the imposition of VAT upon medicines is unconscionable, and should be repealed forthwith; this is the meaning of oppression. I hope your elderly mother will regain her health, In-sha-Allah/God willing and will relief the burdens upon your family brought about by this trial.

      Don’t pay much attention to BBC propaganda. “The idea that comets brought water to Earth gained momentum late last year, when astronomers announced ocean-like water in Comet Hartley 2.”

      I would add that meteors may have contributed to the water also. Water a molecule composed of Hydrogen and Oxygen had to have come from deep Space since Oxygen is created in the bowels of stars more massive than our Sun by the Nuclear Fusion process, and expelled Light-years across Space when the Star dies in the Super Nova. Anyway you might read this small article:

      http://earthsky.org/space/did-comets-bring-water-to-earth

      I see Allen Chastanet has contaminated you, causing you to utter falsehoods. I dislike Allen because he is a phony, a fraud, bogus and deceitful; nothing to do with his pale skin/koolear whya-yahi. An arrogant imbecile who thinks speaking Kweyol will spoil his British accent, and bring him too close to the people who were not able to afford to be “civilized” like Rick Wayne the ninny, who goes around telling people, “I am a Roman”! he may say Catholic. lol. These are the mis-educated idiots, Lucians have been forced to accept information from by the CIA, so don’t blame Kenny.

      Surah Al-Baqara

      So from whencesoever thou startest forth turn thy face in the direction of the Sacred Mosque; and wheresoever ye are turn your face thither That there be no ground of dispute against you among the people Except those of them that are bent on wickedness; so fear them not but fear Me; and that I may complete My favors on you and ye may (consent to) be guided. (150)

      A similar (favour have ye already received) in that We have sent among you a Messenger of your own rehearsing to you Our signs, and purifying you, and instructing you in Scripture and wisdom, and in new Knowledge. (151)

      Then do ye remember Me; I will remember you. Be grateful to Me and reject not faith. (152)

      O ye who believe! Seek help with patient perseverance and prayer: for Allah is with those who patiently persevere. (153)

      And say not of those who are slain in the way of Allah: “They are dead.” Nay, they are living, though ye perceive (it) not. (154)

      Be sure We shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods, lives and the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere.― (155)

      Who say: when afflicted with calamity: “To Allah we belong and to Him is our return.” (156)

      They are those on whom (descend) blessings from their Lord and Mercy and they are the ones that receive guidance. (157)

      These Negroes are so disgraceful, kneeling and praying to a Naked Caucasian dripping blood upon their mouths and begging dead white men to save them from sickness and death – these same dead people who could not save themselves and lie rotting and being eaten by Too-lu-loos at Choc.

      1. Injecting religion and race into every topic on these blogs is not necessary; and I am getting tired of it. If we are discussing the Bois d’Orange bridge or the upcoming elections, or whatever the case may be, let’s stick to the subject.
        That being said, you’ll have to force yourself, somehow, to learn to accept and respect other people’s opinions and choices; for no one is completely right nor completely wrong. You, as an individual, made the choice to convert from Christianity to Islam; that’s OK. But to come back and attack/criticize your brethren who didn’t find it necessary to follow in your footsteps is just wrong.

        The creator is the one who allows a variety of religions because he loves to be worshipped in a variety of ways. He is a God of variety; just look around and you’ll see. People, for instance, come in variety: Asians, Africans, Native-Americans, and Europeans; dogs come in variety, cats come in variety, birds come in variety, even the mangoes we love so dearly come in variety. So there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a variety of religions. Get it out of your head that Islam is the answer; for the Jew thinks similarly, the Christian thinks similarly, the Buddhist thinks similarly, etc., etc. Now, who is right? Everyone thinks he is right; so stop calling Jesus, the founder of the Christian religion, a white, blue- eye God; for the Bible never mentioned his color/race; it was the artists of the High Renaissance who drew paintings (similar to themselves) of a white Jesus. I know of no Christian who worship these paintings.

        The most important thing about Jesus is what is said in John 14:6; “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” And Paul later reiterated that statement in Acts 4:12 when he wrote: “…for there is no other name (not Budda, not Muhammad) under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved’. End of story.

        So it will be difficult to convince a believing Christian that the above is all wrong, and Islam, Judaism, or Buddist is the way to go. I’ve said my piece on religion; and never again will I be talking religion on these blogs unless the subject is religion.

      2. TOM-TOM:

        Religion and Politics govern every aspect of our lives. It is the politics of Slavery that made you Christian, and this denial has led to the Self-hating Negroes who thinks their skin should be bleached and chemicals applied to look like Shabeens. There is nothing dignifying about worshiping a Naked Caucasian as your God, while resorting to the savagery of cannibalism, drinking his precious blood, and eating the flesh of the Caucasian God – what you call the body and blood.

        You and the idiots like Josie and the Roman Slave who changed his name from Carasco to a more white slave name Ricky John Wayne are the reasons this country has become marooned in time. An Island of Fridays with Allen Chastanet as Robinson Crusoe.

        Man with information so widely available, you tender the bogus word of king James, a well documented pervert, as the word of God who has told you Black Slaves to obey your masters and please them, to buttress the argument for your insanity? Such profound backwardness in 2014 is simply unbelievable.

        Ephesians 6

        5. Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.

        6. Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart.

        7. Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people,

        Colossians 3

        22. Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord.

        23. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,

        Then like a typical house nigger, you and these others like Josie and Jeff give such a foul and insulting book to your children and grand children instructing them to pray to dead people and worship a Naked white man dripping blood as their God to continue the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade – you people are shameless Samboes. O.K. TOBY TOM TOM, let me introduce you to your Good Christian Brother, Massa Reynolds in this clip:

        1. “Man with information so widely available, you tender the bogus word of king James, a well documented pervert, as the word of God….”
          ——————————————————————————————————————————-
          I guess I am in good company; for you too tender the bogus words of Muhammad, a well documented child molester, as the word of God….Aisha was only 9 years old when he slept with her.
          The pot should never call the kettle black.

        2. Now here you go defending your perverted King James, which is typical of the Negro Slave. I had told you before that being ignorant is nothing to go around with as some great accomplishment. I can see you are not an individual who desires to learn although we have been there before I will instruct you as an act of charity.

          According to your demonic doctrine, Satan got our first parent Eve to have sex with him in the Garden of Eden, thereby capturing her offspring from God. God wanted to save us from Satan, but the only price acceptable to Lucifer was that God commit suicide/kill himself/shed his precious blood. Like your Christmas Carrol goes:

          God rest ye merry, gentlemen
          Let nothing you dismay
          Remember, Christ, our Saviour
          Was born on Christmas day
          To save us all from Satan’s power
          When we were gone astray
          O tidings of comfort and joy,

          So God plugged Mary the Spouse of Joseph when she was twelve years old and God became a White man to pay Satan with his precious blood to save the world.

          I think putting your sperm into another man’s wife is punishable by stoning, but that means nothing to you since you live in blissful ignorance praying to a Naked white man as your God. Allow me to use one of your White Christian Scholars to try to educate you and perhaps you might stop being such a disgraceful slave of white man worship and become a Muslim. Here’s the story of how your God plugged the man’s wife with his only begotten son when Mary the Mother of God was Twelve years old and will give birth to God in ten days in a manger. You understand the word begotten, TOM TOM ? Not a Step Son, or adopted son. I will not give up until you stop making your wife kneel and kiss this naked white man – it’s war!

  4. Bridge is a win win for local and International revenue .
    SON –OF-Man wins the high ground on this economic merit and is more convincing as a champion manning the ramparts from Ciceron- Barre de Lisle-Mt Gimie-Moule a Cheque.
    Therefore RENOLDS neo Freudian attack on the Most modern Bridge in Caribbean is tacked with diversion that begs solemn empathy (who on God’s planet does not feel for the sick- I volunteered at VH after school- I also rode “shotgun” if not sidekick for ambulance drivers I recall an erstwhile emergenfcy response that was watershed milestone in my early youth. The call came out to pick up a fever ridden child somewhere in the Derniere Riverre area of Dennery.
    Switching from activating strobbing beacon and wailing siren I watched watched ‘with frantic hope a baby (very dark complexion but her forehead `was like a dull silver halo from the FEVER that spurred my friendly pal-if not big brother –significant other- now most solemn driver- to accelerate and careen through Derniere Rivere, Richfond-slowed temporally by the then formidable steepness and switchbacks of the barreDeLisle upgrade. He more than made up for the drag on the downgrade slope and flatter Bexon to Cul De Sac Valley run.
    Mercifully, it was late night. Traffic on the now Eastern Highwa, was sparse and we could be seen or heard for miles ahead. Looking at the helpless fever ridden child –so calm- I knew FEAR for the very first time and never again so profound –not for myself in a floored accelerated Volkswagen ambulance – (I had a lot of confidence in my favorite ambulance operator) – but for this sickened child – that our bold rush to Victoria Hospital would give her a new lease on life. I felt so helpless and frozen with concern if not dreaded trepidation that upon arrival at VH I did not follow through on the child’s progress- although I knew every nook and cranny of the Children’s ward. Instead, I walked to the area between the Matron and nurse’s residence to gaze and pray over the vista of the outer approaches of our natural harbor.
    Mr. Reynolds the projected benefits that you fail to account for is most glaring like those illegal halogen headlights on racy cars. Here are some you overlooked:
    – The Gros Islet-REduit Bonne Terre, Rodney Bay environ has the potential for a Cultural-industrial Megaplex attracting international REVENUE for many years as in SUSTAINABLE.
    – Cruise ship and long stay tourists need modern access to the nearby northern entertainment megaplex- even if for tanning siesta
    – The real estate holders in the area need to attract long term UPSCALE TENANTS to their properties.
    – International old and new money heirs, scions and even avid speculators need the access and VISTA of Modernity within the natural “paradise” setting (4-6 months escape from frigid winters and cool /cold springs )
    – What’s good for the Goose that lays the Golden egg of positive foreign exchange $s Euros, Yen, etc., is great for the local revenue sharing.
    – The Bridge is a win win. Great bridges and Strategic Tunnels should be playing at tropical cinemas in river run islands.
    – Criticism should be levelled instead at the need for TRAFIC Control and enforcement.
    – Speed bumps and laser triggered speeding cameras are a fine augmentation that will not clog up courts unless violators want to contest a fine.
    – Targeted corridors for random or all vehicular traffic (DWI, expired documents vehicle or driver, safety issues with lights etc.)
    – Furthermore a proposal for a mandatory 3-5 hour defensive driving course at each renewal of a driver’s license (annually for drivers 17-25)
    – Yes, Mr. TomTom , although the writer of the article did herald the positive outcome if not grandeur of this infrastructure favor of the current political incumbency- rightfully so; this economic strategy of investing inviable infrastructure has proven successful outcomes given the larger than a hemisphere backdrop of targeted infrastructure practiced by both Presidents Roosevelt and touted (a bit too lightly) by Obama)
    – Finally, to support my bridge response and to pass the SON=OF MAN Citation plume test ,
    “British economist John Maynard Keynes argued in General Theory of Employment Interest and Money that lower aggregate expenditures in the economy contributed to a massive decline in income and to employment that was well below the average. In such a situation, the economy reached equilibrium at low levels of economic activity and high unemployment.
    Keynes’ basic idea was simple: to keep people fully employed, governments have to run deficits when the economy is slowing, as the private sector would not INVEST enough to keep production at the normal level and bring the economy out of recession. Keynesian economists called on governments during times of economic crisis to pick up the slack by increasing government spending and/or cutting taxes.
    As the Depression wore on, Franklin D. Roosevelt tried public works, farm subsidies, and other devices to restart the US economy, but never completely gave up trying to balance the budget. According to the Keynesians, this improved the economy, but Roosevelt never spent enough to bring the economy out of recession until the start of World War

    Till then the vanguard regiment of St Lucia will be motivated by the best interests of ALL the people, ALL the Land and the Clarity to bring prosperity to her. I guess I should cite the motto on the National coat of arms, oui?

  5. Who is the Author of the Bible, King James?

    King James 1 was the son of Mary Queen of Scots, who many of you know of her quite well but I will tell you later. Anyway the infamous Henry viii was a grand uncle of James. Henry viii is best known for murdering his wives who did not bare his male offspring, and his divorce from Catherine to marry Anne Boliene a French woman. The Catholic Church was expelled from her authority by Henry viii because of her known ungodly practices, and Henry capitalized on their unpopularity to form the Church of England where he became known as Defender of the Faith.

    Since Henry had discarded her mother Catherine, Mary Queen of Scots had an axe to grind, so Queen Mary who was Catholic declared war against the Protestants, killing thousands, becoming known as Bloody Mary; next time you order the cocktail of Vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, salt, Pepper, celery salt and horseradish, you will know the history.

    This vile killer Queen Mary is the mother of the perverted King James 1 whose Bible version was given to the Slave in captivity. James was a shallow man who was a show-off becoming King after the death of the Pirate Queen Elizabeth 1, who was the daughter of King Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, she was only two years old when her mother Anne Boleyn was beheaded on the orders of her husband Henry viii. Look these people that many of you call your Queen and kings, are some of the most vile of the human family. Elizabeth 1, was raped repeatedly by her older cousins developing many S.T.Ds. She would never marry being a misandrist , becoming known as the Virgin Queen. The State of Virgina, U.S.A. is named after her.

    Back to King James whose version of life governs yours. King James was a sodomite/buller who loved men and had sex with them. At the age of thirteen James fell madly in love with his male cousin Esme Stuart whom he made Duke of Lennox. In 1582 James was kidnapped and forced to issue a proclamation against his lover, sending him back to France. This would be only one of King James’ promiscuous homosexual affairs.

    Later, James fell in love with a poor young Scotsman named Robert Carr. “The king leans on his [Carr’s] arm, pinches his cheeks, smooths his ruffled garment, and when he looks upon Carr, directs his speech to others.” (Thomas Howard, Earl of Suffolk, in a letter, 1611). Carr eventually ended the relationship after which king James expressed his dissatisfaction in a letter to Carr, “I leave out of this reckoning your long creeping back and withdrawing yourself from lying in my chamber, notwithstanding my many hundred times earnest soliciting you to the contrary…Remember that (since I am king) all your being, except your breathing and soul, is from me.” (See The Letters of King James I & VI, ed., G. P. V. Akrigg, Univ. of Calif. Press, 1984. Also see Royal Family, Royal Lovers: King James of England and Scotland, David M. Bergeron, Univ. of Missouri Press, 1991)

    James’s sexual orientation was so widely known that Sir Walter Raleigh joked about it in public saying “King Elizabeth” had been succeeded by “Queen James.”

    King James 1 was a known homosexual who murdered his young lovers and victimized countless heretics and women. His cruelty was justified by his “divine right” of kings.

    You may choose to turn away from Truth but there is no benefit in living a lie, except if you think HELL is your place of residence. Here’s some more facts about the Bible:

    Although the title page of The King James Bible boasted that it was “newly translated out of the original tongues,” the work was actually a revision of The Bishop’s Bible of 1568, which was a revision of The Great Bible of 1539, which was itself based on three previous English translations from the early 1500s. So, the men who produced the King James Bible not only inherited some of the errors made by previous English translators, but invented some of their own.

    I ask you people, isn’t it time you read the Qur-an and learn the Truth? Why has the Religion of white man worship forbidden you from reading the Book most read on this Planet?? can you answer that?

    Surah Al-Mulk
    In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

    Blessed is He in Whose hand is the Sovereignty, and, He is Able to do all things. (1)
    Who hath created life and death that He may try you which of you is best in conduct; and He is the Mighty, the Forgiving, (2)
    Who hath created seven heavens in harmony. Thou (Muhammad) canst see no fault in the Beneficent One’s creation; then look again: Canst thou see any rifts? (3)
    Then look again and yet again, thy sight will return unto thee weakened and made dim. (4)
    And verily We have beautified the world’s heaven with lamps, and We have made them missiles for the devils, and for them We have prepared the doom of flame. (5)
    And for those who disbelieve in their Lord there is the doom of hell, a hapless journey’s end! (6)
    When they are flung therein they hear its roaring as it boileth up, (7)
    As it would burst with rage. Whenever a (fresh) host is flung therein the wardens thereof ask them: Came there unto you no warner? (8)
    They say: Yea, verily, a warner came unto us; but we denied and said: Allah hath naught revealed; ye are in naught but a great error. (9)
    And they say: Had we been wont to listen or have sense, we had not been among the dwellers in the flames. (10)
    So they acknowledge their sins; but far removed (from mercy) are the dwellers in the flames. (11)
    Lo! those who fear their Lord in secret, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward. (12)
    And keep your opinion secret or proclaim it, lo! He is Knower of all that is in the breasts (of men). (13)
    Should He not know what He created? And He is the Subtile, the Aware. (14)
    He it is Who hath made the earth subservient unto you, so Walk in the paths thereof and eat of His providence. And unto Him will be the resurrection (of the dead). (15)

    1. But Islam is a subset of Judaism which is the old of the monotheistic religions. All of the works contain unsightly and contradictory/deviant instructions.

      Anyway, before the modern globalised world, if you went to different corners of the planets, all people would be believing in some mystical/celestial thing or another. England had pagans before Christians.

      If you spent a few hours watching some SCIENCE programs, all militant believers of religion would eat a little humble pie.

      1. As an individual who grew up in the Catholic Church, the one on Micoud Street, I know the Church thrives on keeping people ignorant; like who is the deviant King James, and we are told never to read the Qur-an. If I found anything in the Qur-an unworthy of belief I would be the first to discard it, and in fact that was my initial intent for reading it. Here are some more Prophets in Islam as mentioned in Qur-an:
        Surah As-Saaffat
        In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

        And verily We sent among them warners. (72) Then see the nature of the consequence for those warned, (73) Save single-minded slaves of Allah. (74) And Noah verily prayed unto Us, and gracious was the Hearer of his prayer (75) And We saved him and his household from the great distress, (76) And made his seed the survivors, (77) And left for him among the later folk (the salutation): (78) Peace be unto Noah among the peoples! (79) Lo! thus do We reward the good. (80) Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves. (81) Then We did drown the others. (82) And lo! of his persuasion verily was Abraham (83) When he came unto his Lord with a whole heart; (84) When he said unto his father and his folk: What is it that ye worship? (85) Is it a falsehood – gods beside Allah – that ye desire? (86) What then is your opinion of the Lord of the Worlds? (87) And he glanced a glance at the stars (88) Then said: Lo! I feel sick! (89) And they turned their backs and went away from him. (90) Then turned he to their gods and said: Will ye not eat? (91) What aileth you that ye speak not? (92) Then he attacked them, striking with his right hand. (93) And (his people) came toward him, hastening. (94) He said: Worship ye that which ye yourselves do carve (95) When Allah hath created you and what ye make? (96) They said: Build for him a building and fling him in the red-hotfire. (97) And they designed a snare for him, but We made them the undermost. (98) And he said: Lo! I am going unto my Lord Who will guide me. (99) My Lord! Vouchsafe me of the righteous. (100) So We gave him tidings of a gentle son. (101) And when (his son) was old enough to walk with him, (Abraham) said: O my dear son, I have seen in a dream that I must sacrifice thee. So look, what thinkest thou? He said: O my father! Do that which thou art commanded. Allah willing, thou shalt find me of the steadfast. (102) Then, when they had both surrendered (to Allah), and he had flung him down upon his face, (103) We called unto him: O Abraham! (104) Thou hast already fulfilled the vision. Lo! thus do We reward the good. (105) Lo! that verily was a clear test. (106) Then We ransomed him with a tremendous victim. (107) And We left for him among the later folk (the salutation): (108) Peace be unto Abraham! (109) Thus do We reward the good. (110) Lo! he is one of Our believing slaves. (111) And we gave him tidings of the birth of Isaac, a prophet of the righteous. (112) And We blessed him and Isaac. And of their seed are some who do good, and some who plainly wrong themselves. (113) And We verily gave grace unto Moses and Aaron, (114) And saved them and their people from the great distress, (115) And helped them so that they became the victors. (116) And We gave them the clear Scripture (117) And showed them the right path. (118) And We left for them among the later folk (the salutation): (119) Peace be unto Moses and Aaron! (120) Lo! thus do We reward the good. (121) Lo! they are two of Our believing slaves. (122) And lo! Elias was of those sent (to warn), (123) When he said unto his folk: Will ye not ward off (evil)? (124) Will ye cry unto Baal and forsake the best of creators, (125) Allah, your Lord and Lord of your forefathers? (126) But they denied him, so they surely will be haled forth (to the doom) (127) Save single-minded slaves of Allah. (128) And we left for him among the later folk (the salutation): (129) Peace be unto Elias! (130) Lo! thus do We reward the good. (131) Lo! he is one of our believing slaves. (132) And lo! Lot verily was of those sent (to warn). (133) When We saved him and his household, every one, (134) Save an old woman among those who stayed behind; (135) Then We destroyed the others. (136) And lo! ye verily pass by (the ruin of) them in the morning (137) And at night-time; have ye then no sense? (138) And lo! Jonah verily was of those sent (to warn) (139) When he fled unto the laden ship, (140) And then drew lots and was of those rejected; (141) And the fish swallowed him while he was blameworthy; (142) And had he not been one of those who glorify (Allah) (143) He would have tarried in its belly till the day when they are raised; (144) Then We cast him on a desert shore while he was sick; (145) And We caused a tree of gourd to grow above him; (146) And We sent him to a hundred thousand (folk) or more (147) And they believed, therefor We gave them comfort for a while. (148) Now ask them (O Muhammad): Hath thy Lord daughters whereas they have sons? (149) Or created We the angels females while they were present? (150) Lo! it is of their falsehood that they say: (151) Allah hath begotten. Allah! verily they tell a lie. (152) (And again of their falsehood): He hath preferred daughters to sons. (153) What aileth you? How judge ye? (154) Will ye not then reflect? (155) Or have ye a clear warrant? (156) Then produce your writ, if ye are truthful. (157) And they imagine kinship between him and the jinn, whereas the jinn know well that they will be brought before (Him). (158) Glorified be Allah from that which they attribute (unto Him), (159)

    All the religions mentioned by you are of the same origin; the Originator of Creation. Moses is a Prophet who received the Revealed Scripture called the Torah from Allah. Jesus received the Injeel(Gospel) from Allah. David/Dawood received the Suboor/Psalms. Muhammad received the Quran, All these scriptures came from the same source, but with the exception of the Quran, none of the original works remain and they have all been contaminated by the hands of men like King James 1. The Jesus is mentioned more times in the Quran than Muhammad.

    Sura 57 – Al-Hadid (MADINA) : Verse 27
    Then We caused Our messengers to follow in their footsteps; and We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow, and gave him the Gospel, and placed compassion and mercy in the hearts of those who followed him. But monasticism they invented – We ordained it not for them – only seeking Allah’s pleasure, and they observed it not with right observance. So We give those of them who believe their reward, but many of them are evil-livers.
