Louis Kilkenny has that disease which afflicts many Guyanese (“There is no space for a party which substitutes political groundwork for laziness”, KN, August 24, 2011).
In the madness of Louis Kilkenny, if a man criticizes a political party in Guyana, he is automatically the member of another political party. A man is not entitled to his independence and his ability to stand alone while criticizing wrongdoing by political knaves in his own country.
In Kilkenny’s mind, a man must be enslaved to some political ideology or group or philosophy. Look, my ancestors have had enough of slavery and indentureship. Political slavery is not for me. Louis Kilkenny is like Kilkenny of the Louis L’Amour novels, a man with a quick draw. Because of this mentality, Louis Kilkenny doesn’t even realise he is is trapped in his own mind.
I have freedom from not supporting any political party. I possess the democracy of my opinion. I have my own views and I stand alone. I do not support nor am I a member of the AFC or any political party. I am definitely not a member or a supporter of the PNC or PPP.
I remind Kilkenny that 31 percent of voters in this country stayed home in 2006 and 2011 is likely not to be any better. Kilkenny claims I am an AFC propagandist. Again, ‘politricks’ is playing a terrible joke on fast shooter Kilkenny.
Kilkenny can’t separate between a man writing truth and condemning wrongdoing from a man who is propagandizing. My message is all mine. It is independent, it comes from my mind and my heart that loves this country to death and hates those who destroy it at every turn. If my message sounds a lot like the AFC then the AFC is definitely closer to the truth than the other two political parties lusting for power in Guyana namely the PPP and the PNC.
For if there is one thing about what I write, it is the entire unmitigated, unshakable truth, whether you like it or not. I don’t hold back when I am throwing punches with the truth. I am here to fire up truth and to throw fire on wrongdoing.
Here’s the truth for Kilkenny. The PPP wants Guyanese to stay and punish only because they want Guyanese to keep voting for that leaking Cup with its bottom fallen out. That is all that matters.
They don’t have a problem with foreigners coming in to take over the sugar industry but they have a serious problem with people choosing to better themselves by seeking a better life somewhere else. People must shut up and bear up their suffering and stick around. It is the same thing the PNC with its ‘bruk-down’ Palm Tree tried.
Stay and get killed in this country that is producing more crime than jobs is what these PPP chieftains are trying to tell Guyanese. You can’t leave. You can’t want a good life. Let’s face it: if you are honest, decent, hardworking and you refuse to sell your soul, you can only suffer in a country that rewards the corrupt, the dishonest and the soul-sellers. You cannot stay here and not lose your dignity, your patience, your morality and your aspiration to be better. You must become a soup drinker, a boot licker, a yes-man, a card-carrying party member and morally convenient to survive in this country.
To achieve what is a middle class lifestyle in the USA or Canada or Europe in Guyana, you generally have to commit a lot of wrongs in a system designed to reward wrongdoing. In the Guyana these men have created, a man must sell his soul to stay out of the hole. Kilkenny wants a proud people whose ancestors have fought, lived, battled and endured slavery, indentureship, repression, oppression, hardship, poverty, deprivation and outright callousness for hundreds of years to hang around and take the punishment and suffering. The PPP suspended a congress that blocked an election. Even Burnham in all his power-hungriness staged rigged elections but never completely denied one.
I guess that plus the failed Impress propaganda scheme on the youths are examples of this political groundwork Kilkenny is talking about. Kilkenny should tell us why should Guyanese stay in Guyana? Chicken is $400 per pound in Guyana versus $261 per pound in the USA. Average income per person in the USA is almost 20 times higher than in Guyana. Pay more on far less pay for chicken in Guyana or go live in the USA where you earn significantly more and pay less for chicken?
Why must Guyanese who can’t find work or decent paying work stay in this cost of living nightmare created by Bharrat Jagdeo and Ashni Singh and to be continued by Donald Ramotar and punish when they could go to Suriname and work and get paid well for it? The idea of job creation has not been discovered as yet by the PPP. Why should Guyanese refuse a better life of less crime, more pay, actual jobs and a better cost of living to remain in Guyana?
These are the same men who during the Burnham days told Guyanese in general to get out and to run as fast away from hell as they could. Now Suriname is looking to pay people a lot of money for work and Kilkenny wants people to stay at home broke, beaten and brutalized. How can men like Kilkenny possess the gall to treat people like garbage by telling them they can’t or shouldn’t leave for their own betterment? Kilkenny mentions Skeldon, Amaila Falls, housing boom, packaging plant, etc.
Skeldon = failure + foreign management. Amaila = Fip Motilall, enough said. Housing boom = talk to those with heavy mortgage payments due on September 31. Packaging plant = nice empty place for rats to build nests. A few pockets filled while no jobs of substance created. It is not that hard Kilkenny: people must leave if it means betterment for them. Suriname is providing excellent opportunities. The Guyanese people must take it. They must take it before the Brazilians and French Guiana cash in. Not everybody is Kilkenny with his Pradoville lifestyle. And trust me, if the PPP doesn’t get its majority which it doesn’t deserve, Kilkenny and his PPP friends will be the first on a plane to somewhere fancy to spend that money earned in a country without jobs. To Kilkenny and his PPP friends: don’t tell people to stay and punish under your mess. Let them leave.
