John Roett: How Much Longer…

John Roett

John Roett posted the following to his Facebook page

How much longer will we bury our heads in the sand and pretend that everything will “work itself out”?

How much longer will we sit idly by, while our pathetic “leaders”, corrupt officials and the greedy bribers whose sole purpose is to increase their wealth, continue to lead our country on a sure path to destruction?
How much longer before honest men stand up and say “enough is enough” and take the situation in hand?
How much longer do we fool ourselves that little boys on a block are the ones bringing in huge amounts of guns.

How much longer will the government ALLOW for EVERY port of entry not to be covered with security cameras? For to my mind, that makes them complicit in every single illegal importation. And please, no one come telling me “because the unions would pull their worker out on strike as it’s an infringement on customs officers privacy or rights or some rasshole” Fuck that! The government is supposed to protect our country.

Full stop.

If they are leaders, they’d have stood their ground and the country would have stood with them. But they aren’t.

Let the good men in our police force and army deal with this now, for I can only hope and pray that the rot isn’t too deep.

As elections approach, I’m seeing posts about “legacy” and “facts”, and whereas this is clever marketing for an election campaign, there is only one absolute fact that currently exists. This is the worst government this country has ever had. And before the yardfowls have a heart attack, let me clarify. I did NOT say THE DLP is the worst government. I said THIS particular government is the worst we’ve ever had. I hope you can tell the difference.

And members of the opposition, don’t be skinning your teeth as if this happened overnight and that you all aren’t culpable in some way or another. This bullshit has been allowed to go on for ever, and now, here we are. The chickens have come home to roost.

So, those in power can choose to send more armed men on my patio, or whatever they want to do, for I am willing to die for my country, because the day just came when I, as a father, had to sit in my bed and repeatedly text my daughters to find out if they were ok and hadn’t been shot by a stray bullet at the end of a carnival.

Just pause and think about that.

And if this post upsets or angers anyone, and if anyone thinks I have some agenda or political affiliation, then sincerely and from the bottom of my heart, fuck you.

    @ Cadogan

    The ONUS is on you to PROVE your ACCUSATIONS of Herbert as being TRUTHFUL and CORRECT………. not David BU.

    You should present the letter.

    By the way…….. you often label other BU contributors as being “retired senior citizens” and associate WW&C with “Shady Pines Retirement Home.”

    But perhaps you’re the oldest retired senior citizen in this forum. Your style of politics, which was practiced in by gone eras, is enough proof to substantiate my assessment.

    Whereas WW&C makes use of current technology to present her argument, your style of politics and strategy of presenting political arguments are reminiscent of that practiced by politicians “way back in the day.”

    This is not the era where a politician or (as in your case) the appointed political pimp could mislead gullible, uneducated people into believing that politicians are to “worshiped” and whatever they say is the “gospel.”

    This is an era where many more people are educated and have to ability to use available technology to avail themselves of any type of information.

    It’s about time you realize that we have long gone pass the “corn beef & biscuit, white rum” type politics you bring to this forum………………….

    ……… back in your day, it may have appealed to lesser educated, political pimps and lackeys such as yourself……… unfortunately for you, your type of politics is abhorred by this generation.

    You will soon find out if there are really two tracks of justice running in Barbados as your PM recently confirmed.

    He is certainly in a position to know since one of the passengers in the first-class cabin of the underworld train is none other than his bosom buddy Leroi Greenverbs who is travelling under the full protection of Lord Fumble who, like Jesse James, guards his elections sponsor for a client to the very hilt with the stolen millions stashed away in the vault secured by the Central Bank of Conmen and Cronies.

    Will this recent train of contraband be swept under the bush like the importation and distribution of condemned chicken wings under the licence approved by the Don of Porn?

    Will it be sent to some investigative committee like the brandishing of firearms in the precinct of the Palmetto Street great House of assembled honourable members of the political class never to see the light of day or will the files disappear when a body is found to take the rap after public outcry?

    I wonder why some DLP operatives and yardfowls, Angela Skeete included, find it soooooo hard to condemn” their politicians for associating with known drug pushers, accepting campaign financing from them and giving them some of the funds to distribute to the “boys on the block,” using their taxis and hired cars to transport constituents to polling stations and subsequently rewarding them with jobs at statutory corporations and protecting their illicit trade.

    Drugs and guns are taking a toll on young Barbadians and by extension, the entire society. People cannot attend any activity nowadays without fear of being shot. The “Kadooment Day shooting” is a perfect example.

    Politicians protecting drug lords and allowing to engage in illegal activities are responsible for these types of violent crimes………. Not some shiite you are accusing Herbert of perpetrating.

    It is about these matters that you should also “speak with a courage of conviction” and condemn a criminal act to activate violence on this tiny island.”

    MORE THAN half a million dollars in illegal drugs were seized at the Barbados Port on Tuesday.

    Police say 4.5 kilos of cocaine valued at $225 000 and 82.5 pounds of cannabis, with a value of $300 000 were discovered among imported cargo.

    It was the result of a joint operation between the Drug Squad and the Customs Enforcement Division of the Customs Department.

    Any person with a modicum of commonsense would know it cannot be the small-fry gun toting black boys from the ghetto blocks who are bringing in the conveniently undetected guns and drugs into Barbados.

    Not even a mock gun or the merest residue of coke or marijuana can get pass the scanners and sniffer dogs at airports especially with regard to flights to destinations known for drug dealing.

    As a small (ordinary) man, try bringing any contraband into Barbados and see how fast the authorities would single out you and your baggage for special examination.

    Only those who are prepared to pay big bribe money to those in authority can get the protection necessary to undertake such transactions under the guise “Business Facilitation”.

    So if our high level officials spend very little time parenting their own biological children

    Why do we expect that they have the interest or capacity to parent ours?
